Police were forced to intervene at a Parliamentary meeting hosted by Jeremy Corbyn where Israel was described as ‘evil’ and a Jewish woman said she was called a ‘piece of sh**’, Jake Wallis Simons reveals.
The unrest began when a British Jewish member of the audience complained that she had not been allowed to challenge the speakers’ anti-Israel views. ‘You’re trying to shut everybody else up, in the house of commons that we fought for,’ she said.
Corbyn refused to accept her questions and tried to close the meeting. Then it descended into chaos. On the video, one woman cries: ‘The Holocaust issue, Jeremy. Why? Why do you do this? Why?’ She then adds ironically, ‘I like Jeremy Corbyn.’
