Jeremy Corbyn Never Really Cared about Muslim Suffering

(Ha'aretz) Fiyaz Mughal - Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK opposition Labour party, has spent many decades promoting an image as a political friend of Muslims. In 2014, Corbyn spoke at the Islamic Centre of England at a celebration marking the 35th anniversary of the Iranian revolution that brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power. Corbyn praised the "tolerance and acceptance of other faiths, traditions and ethnic groupings in Iran." Yet the Iranian regime routinely murders political opponents, created and supports Hizbullah and a plethora of other violent Islamist terror groups, and has restricted religious freedoms to the point that Bahais, Zoroastrians, Jews, Christians and other faith adherents have fled the country, leaving few traces of their long history and heritage. Muslims like me, opposed to enforced religious practices, would not stand a chance in Iran. We would be arrested, tortured or killed. The writer is founder and director of Faith Matters, an organization dedicated to countering extremism in Britain.
