Twitter reacts to Jeremy Corbyn’s excuse

UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn participated in a wreath-laying ceremony to honour the perpetrators of a heinous Palestinian terrorist attack that killed 11 Israelis at the 1972 Olympics. The Israeli athletes were kidnapped and tortured before being murdered. World Israel news writes

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is facing allegations of enabling anti-Semitism, acknowledged Monday that he was present at a wreath-laying to Palestinians linked to the murder of 11 Israelis at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

When questioned by reporters about his presence at the ceremony, Corbyn responded, “I was present when it was laid. I don’t think I was actually involved in it. I was there because I wanted to see a fitting memorial to everyone who has died in every terrorist incident everywhere because we have to end it.”

“Being ‘present’ is the same as being involved,” said Labour lawmaker Luciana Berger. “Where is the apology?” End quote.

Jeremy Corbyn’s statement in his defence was roundly mocked on Twitter.

I was present when it was laid. I don’t think I was actually involved in it.
