2009 Circa Shows Jeremy Corbyn Sympathizing With The Unthinkable
Great Britain’s Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is the British equivalent of a Democratic party leader in America- and it shows. He has blamed his own country for the actions of extremists but went on to sympathize with those who incite terror. Sound familiar?
After the Manchester bombing in 2017, in which Islamic terrorists murdered 22 people, Corbyn blamed the British government for wars it had involved Great Britain in, saying that there was a link between “wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home”, according to The Independent. “An informed understanding of the causes of terrorism is an essential part of an effective response that will protect the security of our people, that fights rather than fuels terrorism,” he added.
In 2009 circa, Corbyn can be seen not just blaming Britan but sympathizing with the bombers:
Corbyn stated, “And I remember asking a group of young Palestinians in Nablus, one time; I sat down with them and I said, ‘What do you think about suicide bombers? What do you think about it?’ And they said, ‘Why do you wanna know? Who are you?'”
Corbyn continued, “So I explained who I was and what I wanted to know for and so on, and after a while they relaxed and they talked. All of them knew somebody that had been, how shall we put it, involved with suicide bombing. None of them agreed with it.” Then he said heatedly, “But every one of them knew why they did it. They said: Put yourself in our place, a life of hopelessness, a life under occupation, a life of demoralization and bitterness: that is where it leads to.”
According to The Daily Wire, the Jerusalem Post noted that a 2007 study of suicide bombers, specifically Palestinian suicide bombers, conducted by Claude Berrebi, an Associate Professor of Public Policy at Hebrew University’s School of Public Policy, found that Palestinian suicide bombers were more likely to come from higher income levels and a higher level of education. Berrebi stated, “If income level and education are linked, at the micro level, to participation in terrorist activities, it is probably to the opposite effect of what the popular conventional wisdom assumes. Both higher education and standard of living appear to be positively associated with membership in terror organizations such as Hamas or PIJ and with becoming a suicide bomber.”
I unearthed a video of Jeremy Corbyn expressing sympathy with Hamas suicide bombers. He met Palestinians who knew suicide bombers: “none of them agreed with it. But they knew why they did it. They said put yourself in our place”. pic.twitter.com/zD3f9zS0TZ

Asked about the 2009 video, a Labour Party Spokesperson said, “Jeremy Corbyn was reporting what was said to him by a group of young Palestinians, who all opposed suicide bombing. Jeremy, obviously, condemns suicide bombing.”
