Not out of context

Jeremy Corbyn at Al-Quds rally

Photo not taken "out of context":

...Al-Quds Day was started by the late Ayatollah Khomenie of Iran, in order to stoke up global Muslim outrage against Israel. As such, it serves as a useful recruiting vehicle for Islamists to promote themselves as legitimate human rights campaigners.

Jeremy Corbyn, who was invited to speak there, should know all this. He should know that it is deeply hypocritical and, yes, problematic to attend an event that is essentially a PR move by a country that has no right to criticise Israel (The punishment for being homosexual in Iran, i.e. the death penalty, is more severe than that meted out in Israel for being a convicted murderer, i.e. a jail sentence.)

It should be no surprise that the flag of a Iranian-backed Islamist group appeared at an Iranian-backed Islamist event. One might as well express shock after agreeing to speak at a rally about worker’s rights organised by the KKK, only to find that photos of you expressing support for minimum wage laws have “accidental” burning crosses in the background...
