UK media is reporting that former British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has pulled out of an event sponsored by groups with links to designated Palestinian terror organizations. According to the Daily Mail report:
February 11, 2022: Jeremy Corbyn has pulled out of a rally demanding Arab states halt ‘normalisation’ of relations with Israel after it was revealed it is sponsored by groups with links to Hamas and other terrorist organisations. The former Labour leader was listed as speaking at a webinar called 2022, The Year to Combat Normalization: We Will Resist the Entity and Protect the Homeland’, on Saturday. The event is organised by Anti-Zionism Coordination (AZC), which is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and opposes efforts by Middle East Muslim nations to establish regular diplomatic ties with the Jewish state. Among the online rally’s listed sponsors is the Boycott Campaign Palestine (BCP), which is led by Basem Naim, a former Hamas minister in Gaza. Another is the Forum of Preachers of Palestine, which is led by Omar Foura, a senior figure in Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Both Hamas and PIJ are organisations proscribed by the UK Government. Another sponsor is the Al-Quds International Institute, which has been proscribed as a terrorist organisation by the United States.

The Jewish News Syndicate describes Anti-Zionism Coordination as follows:
The AZC is an umbrella organization composed of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations around the Arab world, from Jordan and Morocco to Sudan and Algeria. Several members of its “Supreme Committee” are also members of the Muslim Brotherhood branches in their respective countries, including Mahmoud Musa from Lebanon, Moath Khawaldeh of Jordan, Naser Al-Fadalah of Bahrain and Hamoud Kebour of Algeria.

Jeremy Corbyn has had a long history of engagement with Muslim Brotherhood groups and Hamas support groups.
The Hamas charter says that it is “one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine,” and a Hamas journalist has acknowledged the role that the “international Muslim Brotherhood” has played in providing funds for the purchase of weapons. Hamas is supported financially and politically by the Global Muslim Brotherhood.
The Al-Quds International Institute was established by Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi, and its Secretary-General has been Mohammad Akram al Adlouni, the likely author of a US Muslim Brotherhood document calling for the destruction of the Western civilization at the hands of the US Muslim Brotherhood.
