Repræsentanter for Den Forenede Arabiske Liste: fra venstre Ayman Odeh, Masud Ghanayem, Jamal Zahalka and Ahmad Tibi.

Den tidligere israelske udenrigsminister Abba Eban sagde engang, at palæstinenserne aldrig lader en chance til at skade sig selv gå fra sig.

Nu er det Den Arabiske Liste i det israelske parlament, Knesset, som beviser, at gyldigheden af udsagnet fortsat består. En samlet gruppe parlamentarikere står frem og støtter lederen af Labour, Jeremy Corbyn, i hans syn på Israel og hans antisemitisme.

Mens Corbyn er blevet en belastning i Storbritannien og nu åbent kaldes antisemit af folk, som tidligere overrabbiner Jonathan Sacks, vælger araberne i Knesset at hylde ham.

“We commend Jeremy Corbyn… for his longstanding solidarity with all oppressed peoples around the world, including his unflinching support for the Palestinian people,” wrote MKs Ahmad Tibi, Yousef Jabareen, Jamal Zahalka, and Masud Ganaim, on behalf of the 13 lawmakers in the Joint List party.

We stand in solidarity with Jeremy Corbyn and we recognize him as a principled leftist leader who aspires for peace and justice and is opposed to all forms of racism, whether directed at Jews, Palestinians, or any other group.”

Corbyns anti-israelske og antisemitiske udfald er så mange og veldokumenterede, at den eller de som vælger at støtte ham, må vide hvad de gør. Sådan bliver det også opfattet i Israel.

Corbyn har i mange sammenhænge optrådt sammen med Hamas-folk og kaldt dem “mine venner”.

Corbyn for years supported and was active on behalf of the Labour Movement Campaign for Palestine, which opposed Israel’s existence and called for the eradication of Zionism.And in 2011, in an interview with Iran’s PressTV, Corbyn lamented what he claimed was the BBC’s “bias towards saying that… Israel has a right to exist.”

De arabiske parlamentarikere tager også det nyligt vedtagne grundlovstillæg op, som knæsætter at Israel er jødernes hjem, hvor de har suverænitet.

“Palestinian citizens of Israel have yet to experience a single day of equality, de jure or de facto – to say nothing of the millions of Palestinians under military occupation in the West Bank, under siege in the Gaza Strip, and the six million in exile abroad, prevented from returning to their homeland simply because they are not Jews,” the letter said.

“As part of the Palestinian people, this has been our lived experience of the Zionist movement since day one.”

Denne lov sætter en stopper for at palæstinenserne nogensinde vil kunne udgøre et flertal i Israel. Europæiske lande kan komme til at vedtage lignende love for at hindre, at muslimer får politisk flertal.

Labour har nægtet at anerkende den internationale definition af antisemitisme, fordi den ikke giver dem frihed nok til at kritisere Israel.

He and his party have so far refused to adopt fully the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism in Labour’s new code of conduct. The Labour leadership has argued the definition, signed by 31 countries and used by many British institutions, does not allow for full criticism of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

The four clauses rejected by the party relate to unfair singling out of Israel or questioning the loyalty of Jews who support Israel.

The Joint List MKs said they fully supported the Labour party’s decision to reject those clauses.

Der kommer stadig nye beviser på Corbyns anti-jødiske indstilling.

The latest firestorm to engulf the Labour Party followed the revelation last month of comments made by Corbyn in a 2013 speech at the Palestinian Return Centre in London, where he said of a group of British “Zionists”: “They clearly have two problems. One is they don’t want to study history and, secondly, having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives, they don’t understand English irony either.”

Former chief rabbi Lord Sacks, responding to those remarks, accused Corbynof giving “support to racists, terrorists and dealers of hate, who want to kill Jews and remove Israel from the map.” The Labour leader, Sacks said, uses “the language of classic prewar European antisemitism.” Labour rejected Sacks’ denunciation, calling the rabbi’s critique absurd and offensive.
