Here's (apparently) newly-found footage of Jeremy Corbyn on Iran's Press TV (naturally) talking about BBC bias and Israel:
"I think there is a bias towards saying Israel is a democracy in the Middle East. That Israel has a right to exist. That Israel has its security concerns."— Paul Waugh (@paulwaugh) November 29, 2019
For many Jewish people, this is the real Jeremy Corbyn. And many wish he'd just admit these are his real views. https://t.co/tUUActGj0Q
Huffington Post editor Paul Waugh's thread continued:
- His supporters may say Corbyn was clumsily trying to say BBC spent too much time referring to Israel as a democracy with security concerns and as a state with a right to exist, but neglects *Palestine*'s democracy, right to exist + security concerns. But that's not how it sounds.
- Of course the real point of his remarks is to claim the BBC is 'biased' towards Israel (a charge it would vigorously deny and demand he showed evidence) *because* of pressure from the Israeli govt. Itself feeding the old trope of global Jewish manipulation of the media.
