SO Jeremy Corbyn is supposed to apologise for accidentally leaving a wreath on the coffin of a man who was engaged in the Peace process that Netanyahu has aborted, and was assassinated by Mossad for that reason. He was never a Munich assassin, he was a PLO Leader in France involved in the Peace process. You are going to have to overcome your guilty reaction to these outrageous accusations Jeremy, sack the appeasers and come out fighting.
Jeremy Corbyn in 2014 attended a conference on Palestine in Tunis at the invitation of the Tunisian president, a supporter of human rights, with other European parliamentarians, including Conservatives and Liberal Democrats from the UK. During the conference Corbyn and others laid wreaths to commemorate the victims of a 1985 Israeli airstrike in Tunis, that killed 62 Palestininians and 12 Tunisians. This act of state terrorism was condemned in the UN Security Council by a majority of 14-0. Corbyn has said himself that the wreath laying was meant to commemorate the victims of all forms of terrorism. The decorative ribbon on the wreath says in Arabic "monitoring the Palestinian legal and political issue", which was the title of the conference Corbyn was attending. The extreme right wing rag the Daily Mail deliberately tried to imply that Corbyn was laying wreaths on the graves of those responsible for the Munich massacre. None of those who carried out the terrorist acts in Munich are buried in Tunis. Salah Khalaf (Abu Iyad) and Atef Bseiso, who are buried in Tunis, have been accused by Israel of having had links with Black September in the 1970s, but have always denied this. They were senior Fatah and PLO leaders at the time and the Palestinians continue to pay respect to them, just like they continue to pay respect to Yasir Arafat, who is buried in the Muqata. When Jack Straw, the UK foreign minister in Tony Blair's government, laid a wreath at Arafat's grave in the Muqata there was no outcry. Netanyahu telling off Corbyn displays what a hypocrite he is. He is the one who commemorates the terrorists who bombed the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1947 causing huge loss of civilian life, including Jews. When Ariel Sharon, the butcher of Qibya and Sabra and Shatila, was lying in state in the Knesset, not one of the mourners thought for one moment what an insult this was to all of the innocent victims of this war criminal. There was no outcry when Tony Blair attended the butcher's funeral. Finally, that Corbyn attended the conference in Tunis and laid wreaths, was known back in 2014. One Tory minister tried to besmirch Corbyn then over this matter, until it became clear that the conference was also attended by Tories. This shows the extent to which Corbyn's enemies are prepared to go to find dirt on him and try to unseat him as leader of the Labour party.
