Corbyn Meets With Terror-Supporting Qatari Emir After Skipping Anti-Semitism Meeting
Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn skipped a party meeting on July 23 about adopting an anti-Semitism code, but did meet with a Qatari emir that has expressed support for terror groups on the same day.
Corbyn and Qatari Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani reportedly discussed the 2022 World Cup and the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.
Al Thani has previously provided millions of dollars in “humanitarian aid” to the Gaza Strip, which prompted a thank-you from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. Al Thani has also reportedly defended Hamas and Hezbollah, both of which have been described by Corbyn as “friends,” although Al Thani has denied that report.
Additionally, Doha – Qatar’s capital – has recently become warm with the Iranian regime and its terror proxies, resulting in diplomatic isolation from the United States and Qatar’s Arab Gulf neighbors. Qatar has since joined in on sanctions on Hezbollah.
Doha also has a history of providing aid to terror groups like Hamas, al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Labour Party members were irked that Corbyn did not attend the anti-Semitism meeting for the second week in a row and reportedly left the meeting feeling “gloomy.”
Anti-Semitism has plagued the party since Corbyn took the reins, and has become even more of an issue after Corbyn and the party leadership implemented watered-down anti-Semitism guidelines. Corbyn was even confronted by longtime Labour Party MP Margaret Hodge on the matter. The three leading Jewish newspapers in the United Kingdom penned a July 25 editorial warning that a Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn would pose “an existential threat to Jewish life in this country.”
