hardly an endorsement of the man. More just an agreement that a particular course of action is best.
By the same token, dog lovers and vegetarians endorse the actions of a certain failed Austrian painter.

Putin’s Useful Idiots: Britain’s Left, Right and Russia

"By endorsing and condoning Putin, the left is not just making the West’s enemy their friend; they are also allying with the right. In foreign policy, Jeremy Corbyn, Seumas Milne, Lindsey German and those who go along with them stand with Nick Griffin, Nigel Farage, James Dowson and their ilk. Even more concerning, the left also stands with the Russian right, and the far-right in particular."

I'm confused here... What possessed you to look up his twitter feed? Did you follow a link from another site or something?

Re: Jeremy Corbyn refuses to denounce terrorist 'friends' Hamas and Hezbollah

If the events weren't taped, I wouldn't believe how blatantly the anti-Semitism claim can be made at people and how paralyzing it can be.
Having watched the recordings, I could say - perhaps Corbyn and others manifest prejudices, but they're probably not the only ones; but they get flak not necessarily for these prejudices but for not supporting Israel's interests.
I'm quite shocked how such a tiny country can have such a powerful influence on British politics.

In part three of The Lobby, our undercover reporter travels to the Labour Party Conference, revealing how accusations of anti-Semitism by group within Labour targeted Israel critics and saw some investigated.

Re: Jeremy Corbyn refuses to denounce terrorist 'friends' Hamas and Hezbollah

for the upteenth time - almost all of the antisemtic incidents in the labour party had nothing to do with Israel.

Corbyn, who was a member of antisemitic groups on facebook deleted his account.

If you watch the investigation piece above you'll see that even a lack of any "antisemtic incident" can be transformed into one.

I think most people here actually want to see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over. Let's admit it - that wall is sinister.

Do I smell a tangent here?

You are implying Loz shouldn't have followed Griffin on Twitter, and that by consequence, any knowledge that he has on Griffin's views was obtained improperly and is therefore void in this dicussion?

Therefore Griffin did not endorse Corbyn.

Therefore Corbyn is not an antisemite.

The article is a complete BS, it is just enough to check the video how the accusations have been created out of thin air in this exact case.
The comment on Qatar and world control might come in question about silencing another documentary, that other one shot in Washington :-)
Not sure why you don't address the actual issue but use some tactics to derail it into something else.

Come on. Give the poor man some slack.

A picture appears on facebook showing Corbyn discussing vegetarianism with an austrian painter, and people shout anti-semitism.

You smell an honest question,. Nothing more. Nothing less. Now I know that may be an alien aroma to you, but it in no way gives you the right to misrepresent my post with your own warped agenda.

I'm curious to know the answer. Is it curiosity? Admiration? Knowing your enemy?

I don't use twitter. I can only think of a handful of people I would want to 'follow', and they tend to be people who don't use twitter, so I have no impetus to join. Also don't get the thing about 'free speech' being limited to a set number of characters. I thought we'd evolved beyond Nokia text slang.
