WATCH: Jeremy Corbyn Defends His “Friends of Hizbullah and Hamas”
This video is from 2009. Besides referring to his “friends” from Hizbullah and Hamas, he also says it is an “pleasure and honor” to host an event in which his friends from Hizbullah would be attending, and expresses his dismay Hamas and Hizbullah are considered terrorist organizations.
In 2016, Corbyn tried to justify the reference to “friends”
“No. It was inclusive language I used which with hindsight I would rather not have used. I regret using those words, of course.”
But it is clear from this video that he meant it, and he was firmly and proudly on their side, considering them to be great dudes defending the palestinians.
And I strongly suspect he feels the same way today.
