Labour's Jeremy Corbyn's campaign was financed by Hamas
Two of the three largest donors to British Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn's campaign are connected to Hamas
according to a report in London's Daily Telegraph.
leader made an inaccurate declaration to Parliamentary authorities about the payment which obscured the donor’s true identity.
Ibrahim Hamami, a vitriolic opponent of the Oslo peace accords and a
supporter of the current wave of stabbings of Jews in Israel, gave
£2,000 to Mr Corbyn in August, one of only three main individual donors
to his campaign. Two of the three have now been exposed as supporters of
Mr Corbyn listed the
donation in the Commons register of members’ interests as being from “Dr
Ibrahim Hamam”, but Dr Hamami confirmed to the Telegraph on Saturday
that he was the donor.
Mr Corbyn’s spokesman declined to answer questions about the donation or why it had been reported incorrectly. Mr Corbyn has close links with many terrorist groups, including the IRA and Hamas.

Hamami is well known to Mr Corbyn, who has described Hamas operatives

A second individual donor to Mr Corbyn’s leadership campaign has also been exposed as a supporter of Palestinian terror.
Ted Honderich, a retired professor at University College, London, who
gave £5,000, wrote in a newspaper in 2011 that Palestinians “have a
moral right to their terrorism within historic Palestine against
If Corbyn ever becomes Prime Minister of England, will he be welcomed in other countries? Here's betting that so long as Hussein Obama remains in office, Corbyn will be a welcome guest at the White House.
