US media is reporting on connections between the UK Labour Party and the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), close to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in the UK. The report begins:
February 11, 2015 The Labour Party under Ed Miliband has long trumpeted its support for the cause of Palestine, but it denies any connections with Hamas. However, documents seen by Breitbart London show just how close the two have become in recent years, despite the public denials.
The connection is through a group called the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) which has donated money to a Labour MP, and even sponsored a dinner with Ed Miliband . The PRC has been accused by the Israeli government of being the European branch of Hamas.
Despite concerns about its links to the terror group it was still allowed to pay £2,000 to sponsor a dinner with Ed Miliband. The dinner was attended by the de facto Palestinian Ambassador to the UK, Dr. Manuel Hassasian, along with the chairman of the PRC, Majed Al Zeer.
Information about the dinner was posted on the PRC’s website along with a photo of Ed Miliband speaking. It was posted in the ‘Lobbying and delegations’ section of the website.
The dinner was organised by Labour Friends of Palestine, and the payment of £2,000 handed over by the PRC included a table at the event and sponsorship of it. But the connections between Labour and the PRC do not stop at sponsoring a dinner with Miliband. They also made a financial donation to veteran Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn.
