Corbyn's hypocrisy on the far-right

Jeremy Corbyn has been attending a meeting of European Socialists and is reported as saying that the "left" must "stand up" to the growing threat of the far-right across the world. In theory we should all support his stance, but there is a real problem with what Corbyn says and what he does.
Jeremy Corbyn is a man who sees the anti-Semites of Hamas and Hezbollah as "friends" despite the fact they themselves are extreme right-wing Islamists, mourns the loss of Castro despite the persecution of gays, execution of opponents and suppression of democracy.
Corbyn appeared on Press TV and has never apologised for giving credence to the fascist clerics who fund the channel and suppress Baha'is, Christians, gays, women, want to commit genocide on Israel, the worlds only Jewish state. Refused to condemn the terrorism committed by the IRA and has shared platforms with the extreme nationalists of Sinn Fein.
This is a man who despite the problems of anti-Zionism morphing into outright anti-Semitism in sections of the Labour Party amongst his own supporters who then refused to visit the Holocaust Museum when invited by his socialist counterpart in Israel. He was "too busy" apparently.
Jeremy Corbyn and his far-left supporters are just as much part of the problem as the far-right is. For those of us fighting the rise of anti-Semitism, the far-left is as much an enemy as not just the alt-right/neo-Nazi's but also the Islamists.
Corbyn cannot be trusted. No wonder Labour is losing deposits.
