UK media is reporting on a video featuring Labour leadership favorite Jeremy Corbyn praising Israeli Muslim Brotherhood leader Raed Salah. According to the report:
August 15, 2015 Labour leadership favourite Jeremy Corbyn has been caught on video praising a hate preacher and inviting him to ‘tea on the terrace’ at Parliament.
In the latest of a string of revelations about his connections to alleged extremists, Corbyn can be seen referring to Sheikh Raed Salah as an ‘honoured citizen’ and even inviting him to tea in the House of Commons.
Salah, a prominent member of the Islamic Movement in Israel, was excluded from the UK because of concerns over his ‘virulent anti-semitism’.
In 2011, he was able to slip through border control at Heathrow and give a number of speeches before he was arrested on the orders of the Home Secretary.
The video shows Corbyn speaking in praise of the Islamist preacher in 2012.
If shows Corbyn saying: ‘[Salah] is a very honoured citizen. He represents his people extremely well and his is a voice that must be heard… I hereby renew my invitation to Sheikh Salah to come to Parliament, meet with me, meet with my colleagues.
Salah, who served two years in prison for raising millions of pounds for the Palestinian terror group Hamas and for having contact with an Iranian intelligence agent, has made a number of incendiary and extremist remarks on camera.
