It has been revealed that Jeremy Corbyn expressed his desire for the British education system to promote a narrative that would allow for Israel to be compared to the Nazi regime.
Mr Corbyn was captured on video at an event in 2013 calling for the British education system to “start teaching a lot of people the history of the Middle East in a more accurate and more balanced way…”. Moments later, he described the West Bank as being “under occupation of the very sort that would be recognised by many people in Europe who suffered occupation during the Second World War…”, a clear reference to the aggression of Nazi Germany.
The International Definition of Antisemitism states that “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” is antisemitic.
With each new revelation about Jeremy Corbyn’s associations and views, the reason for his refusal to accept the Definition in full becomes increasingly clear.
