British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is at the centre of yet another anti-Semitism row after recently surfaced photos show him attending an anti-Israel rally where Israel was compared to Nazism.

The pictures, posted on Twitter on Wednesday, show Corbyn walking in a 2009 march in Birmingham, England, where protesters held banners that described the Jewish state as “child killers” and “thirsty for blood,” while calling for a boycott of the Jewish state. At the front of the march, demonstrators held a banner that called Gaza a “21st Century Concentration Camp” and accused Israel of war crimes.

One poster read “Zionism is the real terrorism,” and another turned the Star of David into a swastika. Images taken at the same rally show protesters burning the Israeli flag and comparing its government to Nazism, according to the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail.

The publication noted that Corbyn also gave a speech at the event.

A Labour Party spokesman responded to the photos saying, “Jeremy has a long and principled record of support for Palestinian rights and human rights, and that is the right thing to do. Like other politicians, he has attended many demonstrations, and is obviously not responsible for the banners that other people bring along.”

The photos surfaced a day before the Community Security Trust (CST) released a report noting that during the first six months of 2019, the highest number of anti-Semitic incidents to date was recorded in the United Kingdom, in comparison to the same period in previous years.

    The left ignores completely the rejection of the Three States Jewish Arab and International formulated in 1937 to save the Jews from nazi Genocide .
    In 1947 the Palestinian People had a another chance it rejected even 100,000 Jewish Holocaust Survivors going to the ancient Holy Land .
    From then the Jewish People’s lost faith in peace with their neighbours .
