UK -Jeremy Corbyn faces criticism for turning down a visit to Israel’s Holocaust Museum

I-24 NEWS – Corbyn has turned down an invitation from Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog to visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust museum and memorial in Jerusalem, the Guardian reports.

As the chair of Labour’s political counterpart in Israel, Herzog reached out to Corbyn in April in the wake of a row caused by a string of anti-Semitic comments from current and former Labour Party MPs.

Responding in particular to former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone’s remarks about Hitler supporting Zionism, Herzog wrote to Corbyn to say he was “appalled” by the comments.

Corbyn suspended Livingstone from the Labour Party, after which Herzog invited Corbyn to Yad Vashem.

But Corbyn, according to Labour sources cited by theGuardian, replied that he had prior commitments that prevented him from being able to go and that he would send either deputy leader Tom Watson or general secretary Iain McNicol in his stead in November.

It took Corbyn several weeks to respond to Herzog, according to the Guardian.

“I’m very disappointed Jeremy turned down the invitation to visit Israel from our sister party,” the Guardian quoted John Ryan MP, chair of Labour Friends of Israel, as saying.

“Given the deep concerns about his commitment to a two-state solution, his labeling of terror groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah as ‘friends,’ and the allegations of anti-Semitism which have occurred on his watch, such a visit should have been a priority,” Ryan added.

The Labour MP for Ilford North, Wes Streeting, joined in the criticism: “It is not surprising that Jeremy Corbyn is not viewed as a potential prime minister by the public when he cannot handle diplomatic issues like this,” the Guardian quoted Streeting as saying.

“This shows why so many people think he is not fit to be prime minister and why many Labour voters would prefer Theresa May.”

The revelations about Corbyn’s snub of Herzog’s invitation come shortly after a previous controversy involving the anti-Semitism row surrounding the Labour Party.

In August, it was revealed that Corbyn had nominated human rights lawyer Shami Chakrabarti — who had concluded in a report two months prior that there was not a systemic issue with anti-Semitism in the party — for a peerage, drawing accusations of a whitewash.

    Why should a foreign politician be forced to visit the Zionist regime? Are the British people that blind to how the leader of the biggest party in Europe is being bullied like this?
    Imagine if Sisi invited Corbyn to the pyramids when he is busy and then makes this sort of reaction when he declines.

    You have to admire the courage of the Arab countries and Iran, Indonesia, North Korea and others in not recognizing Israel.

    Another Zionist excuse to demonize Jeremy Corbyn.

    Israeli playwright and actress Natali Cohen Vaxberg has posted an eye-opener video at the You Tube. She plays the part of “Holocaust” in the video which was filmed in front Israel’s Holy Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in occupied Jerusalem.

    In the video Vaxberg tries to pull the Israeli Jews out of their self-denial mentality surrounding Holocaust. Watch her great performance below.

    “I’m the Holocaust, the best thing ever happened to you,” she said “After all these years, I deserve a round of applause.”

    “How could you justify 1948 and 1967 without me?,” she said. “Who deserves credit for enabling you to place three million people in a ghetto without the superpowers bombing you? Do you think you can get along without me?,” she added.

    “Has Frankenstein taken revenge on his creator? Where you learned this from? The bigger you grew, the more your memory shrinks. Where you learned to gather people into concentration camps on the basis of their ethnic background? I’m your truth,” she said.

    Several bigots who could not face the truth coming from a cursed woman have asked Israeli attorney-general Yehuda Weinstein to indict Vaxberg for antisemitism.

    Amazing hoe jews can lie or deny FACTS they don’t like; Hitler absolutely worked with the Zionist elite to remove jews to Palestine! Germany was the first nation to provide the Zionists with agricultural machinery, for example. The jews think that if they say that something is not true, that’s the end of the discussion; after that, you’re an “anti-Semite” which is a ridiculous term, since 95% of all jews on the planet are white Ashkenazis.

    The Nazis were great for writing shit down, so there are a lot of their own records (wherever they are – or whatever is available). I hope Corbyn sticks to his guns. Why should any politician be obliged to do this “pilgrimage” to Israel or Yad Vashem. It’s like kissing the Queen’s twat (er I mean hand) if you’re not a Brit.

    The only way you could inspire me to visit Israhell would be to arrange an aerial visit in a squadron of loaded B-52 bombers with bombay doors opening over all their cities, dropping large 9-11 “thank you” gifts with “Fuck Yad Vashem” written on each bomb. The Gentile mantra across the globe should be: “We will not bow down and we will not serve!”
