Latest Photo From Munich Killer’s Ceremony Shows Corbyn Standing Next to Palestinian Terrorist Leader

The Times of London published a picture of Corbyn standing next to Maher al-Taher, the leader-in-exile of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian (PFLP), just weeks before members of the terror group carried out a bloody attack on a Jerusalem synagogue that killed six people.

Corbyn’s attendance at the wreath-laying ceremony for the 1972 Munich killers has already caused outraged within the British Jewish community. Nevertheless, he has downplayed his role at the ceremony, which took place before he became leader of the Labour Party.

“A wreath was indeed laid by some of those who attended the conference for those who were killed in Paris in 1992,” Corbyn told Sky News. “I was present when it was laid; I don’t think I was actually involved in it. I was there because I wanted to see a fitting memorial to everyone who has died in every terrorist incident everywhere. Because we have to end it. You cannot pursue peace through a cycle of violence. The only way you pursue peace is a cycle of dialogue.”

Corbyn and his Labour Party have been embroiled in scandals involving antisemitic comments and behavior in recent years. Recently, the three top Jewish newspapers in the United Kingdom wrote a joint editorial accusing Corbyn of being an “existential threat” to British Jewry.
