Labour anti-Semitism tsar’s praise for militant who says the ‘crimes’ of Israel are worse than the Taliban’s

Shami Chakrabarti Islamist sympathizerThe head of Labour’s inquiry into anti-Semitism in the party heaped praised on a militant linked to Jihadi John who once said that the ‘crimes’ of Israel outweighed those of the Taliban.

Shami Chakrabarti – who has been appointed by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – was accused of ‘lacking credibility’ after it emerged that she had once described Moazzam Begg as a ‘wonderful advocate… for human rights and in particular for human liberty’.

Mr Begg, who was imprisoned in Guantanamo after travelling to Afghanistan to build schools for children of Al Qaeda fighters, recently caused a storm on Twitter by declaring: ‘Israel’s crimes far outweigh Taliban’s who are in their own country. Zionist Israelis aren’t.’
