A video recorded in 2009 recently emerged of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn expressing empathy and understanding about why Palestinians become suicide bombers.
“I remember asking a group of young Palestinians in Nablus one time: I said, ‘What do you think about suicide bombers?’”
All of the young Palestinians knew someone who had been involved in a suicide bombing, “none of them agreed with it,” he said, “but they all knew why they did it.
“They said, ‘Put yourself in our place,’ he continued. “A life of hopelessness, a life under occupation, a life of demoralization and bitterness. That is where it leads.”
