Jeremy Corbyn once spoke at a rally attended by anti-Israel members of a since-banned terrorist group linked to one of the London Bridge bombers, it emerged today.
The revelation will fuel claims that the Labour leader’s track record points to him being “soft” on Britain’s enemies if he becomes Prime Minister this week.
It came as Theresa May urged voters to defy the terrorists and make sure they exercise their precious right to vote in tomorrow’s general election.
Some held placards reading “Palestine is Muslim” and members of the noisy contingent chanted “Skud, Skud Israel” and “Gas, gas Tel Aviv”, and abused a female Israeli peace activist.
Al-Muhajiroun has been a banned terrorist organisation since soon after the 7/7 bombings in London in 2005.
It has been linked to attacks including the 2013 murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby.
It was led by radical Islamists Omar Bakri Muhammad, currently believed on the run in Lebanon, and Anjem Choudary, who was jailed last year for encouraging people to support and join so-called Islamic State.
Alleged London Bridge attack ringleader Khuram Butt is believed to have been a supporter of the group.
There is no suggestion Mr Corbyn – whose party has faced accusations of tolerating anti-semitism under his leadership – did anything wrong at the 2002 rally.
A spokesperson for him said today: “Jeremy addressed a broad-based rally in support of Palestinian rights.
“It was a public event and he was in no way responsible for the views of all of the thousands of attendees.
“Jeremy condemns Al-Muhajiroun in the strongest possible terms.”
Prime Minister Mrs May defiantly insisted that Britain’s democratic process will not be derailed by the bloody attacks in Manchester and London during the campaign.
