My First Encounter with Jeremy Corbyn

(Israel Hayom) Amb. Ron Prosor - On Tuesday I learned that - according to Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn - as well as being Israel's ambassador to the United Kingdom between 2007 and 2011, I was also chief speechwriter for senior MPs in the British Parliament. According to Corbyn, the Israeli ambassador forces legislators to do his bidding. I met Jeremy Corbyn for the first time in 2008. He was spearheading a demonstration in front of the Israeli Embassy in London that was replete with Hamas and Hizbullah flags. He was vocal in his opposition to Israel's efforts to defend itself, insisting that the rocket attacks on Israeli communities at the time were a result of the "occupation" of Gaza, despite the fact that Israel had left Gaza several years earlier.
