'I did not have internet relations with that woman' - How many times can you 'accidentally' bump into someone online? Because @jeremycorbyn claims he was added to #antisemitic group #Palestine Live by someone he didn't know.
So he comments on her personal timeline - sometimes tagged, often not. The leader of @uklabour thanking her, or using her space to thank others. Sometimes it is just a comment about some poetry she uploads.
And then there are 'likes' - on paintings, cartoons and animal images. How many times can you 'accidentally' bump into someone online?@ For someone who didn't use social media much - Corbyn sure ended up with Elleanne a lot
And more - and some of the Palestine Live interactions are not even here - sometimes tagged - sometimes not. How many times? Until the claim that he didn't know he was added to his 'friends' secret racist group - rings really hollow.

My position has never been anti-Labour. I am a proud Brit, who waves the flag and whose hard working parents and grandparents came from places such as Woolwich and Newcastle. For most of my life I’ve battled antisemitism found in politically disenfranchised ideologies.
My personal experience left me in no doubt of the moral imperative behind #Zionism. Like most Jewish families, more branches are missing from the family tree than those that remain. Not just from the #Holocaust but from the relentless persecution that preceded it.
Zionism was an outstanding success because it was so tragically right. The Jews don’t just have a right to self-determination but a desperate need for it. #Israel is the home of a globally persecuted people. Here too they are hounded, but in #israel they can defend themselves.

THREAD - The term 'pro-Palestinian' is probably the most misused term in the English Language. Hating Israel does not make you 'pro-Palestinian'. More importantly neither does supporting extremist groups that use Palestinian children as human shields.
Standing in solidarity with those who seek conflict rather than peace, want to kill Jews, fly the swastika and commit acts of horrific terrorism is not being 'pro-Palestinian'. Nor does being 'pro-Palestinian' mean you align with those who teach their children to hate.
The normal Palestinian does not need you to support BDS, nor align with the extremists of Hamas. I spent years working with Palestinians and their lives are not bettered when you buy into lies. Extremists are trying to make everything worse - that isn't 'pro-Palestinian' at all
