Absolutely right. As has been said in this thread multiple times, it proves that Corbyn is a disaster waiting to happen and that he has no chance of leading the Labour Party to power. Why, look how he drove down the seat count for the Labour Party to historically low levels!

How Labour Friends of Israel Tried to Undermine Jeremy Corbyn

"A lobby group within the party, Labour Friends of Israel coordinates its activities with the Israeli embassy, which has provided funding to secretive efforts to win lawmakers over to Israel's cause..."

This article outlines actual, verifiable interference by a foreign government in the British election. To the people who claim Russophobia is a non-issue could you please compare and contrast the MSM reporting of the two incidents.  Trump is supposeded to be impeached over talking to Russians while imposing sanctions on Russia for bad behaviour that is based on suppostition by spooks.  The Israeli government hasn't even had their Ambassador called in for a dressing down or sent home for the blatent interference in the Britain's democracy.

He was filmed at a closed-door meeting joking and discussing strategy with disgraced embassy agent Shai Masotand Ambassador Mark Regev.

Israel quickly called Masot back to Tel Aviv after the Al Jazeera investigation made headlines. Masot had been caught on video plotting with a civil servant to “take down” a senior British government minister perceived as critical of Israel.

Despite his record of dishonesty, Newmark was selected as a Labour candidate. He then used his media platform in an effort to revive the discredited anti-Semitism smears.

Even as Corbyn’s poll numbers were surging, Newmark claimed to the BBC that “Jeremy Corbyn appears to have failed to understand the nature of contemporary anti-Semitism.”

On election day, Newmark failed to take the seat from Conservative incumbent Mike Freer – who is also staunchly pro-Israel.
