Personal Quote:

Jeremy Corbyn has brought into the Labour Party this very virulent anti-Israeli stance and this has led him to be sympathetic with organisations that want to destroy Israel, and once you demonise Israel in that way then of course you get into all sorts of theories about Israel's allies in other countries, many of whom happen to be Jewish and so on, and it is a real mess.
