Thanks to Jewish Voice for Labour for revealing what the great Corbyn ‘irony’ remark was all about. I haven’t seen it reported anywhere else before – the actual words used by the Palestinian ambassador at the meeting in 2013 were intended as ironic: “You know I’m reaching the conclusion that the Jews are the children of God, the only children of God and the Promised Land is being paid by God. I have started to believe this because nobody is stopping Israel building its messianic dream of Eretz Israel to the point I believe that maybe God is on their side.” He was challenged by a group of Zionists in the room. It was this that sparked Corbyn’s comment – which has so inflamed ‘Lord’ Jonathan Sacks, Frank (perhaps a peerage from May is on its way) Field and others. I bet none of the Corbyn detractors had read the Palestinian ambassador’s ironic comment either.
