Corbyn Vows to Immediately Recognize a Palestinian State If Elected

Speaking at the British Labour Party’s annual conference in Liverpool, leader Jeremy Corbyn announced that he will immediately recognize a Palestinian state if he is elected prime minister. At the same time, Corbyn sought to reassure British Jews, with whom he has been locked in a bitter conflict over antisemitism in the party’s ranks, that they are still regarded as “allies.”

“In order to help make the two-state settlement a reality we will recognize a Palestinian state as soon as we take office,” Corbyn told the assembled delegates in his keynote speech.

Corbyn received a standing ovation for his pledge.

Dozens of Palestinian flags were distributed to the audience during the conference, while attendees shouted pro-Palestinian slogans and speakers relentlessly slammed the Jewish state. The Labour leadership itself approved the flag-waving.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
