UK Home Secretary Affirms Hamas as a Terror Group Amidst Heated Debate

Share This Story

In a recent interview on “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” former UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn declined to label Hamas as a terrorist organization, sparking a contentious discussion with the talk show host. However, newly appointed Home Secretary James Cleverly took a definitive stance, confirming Hamas as a terror group.


Cleverly’s statement came in response to a video circulating on social media, showcasing Morgan repeatedly pressing Corbyn to acknowledge whether the Palestinian militants responsible for a recent attack on Israel were terrorists. Despite Corbyn’s evasion, Cleverly asserted, “As Home Secretary, I can confirm that Hamas is a terror group.”


The interview reached a boiling point as Morgan persistently questioned Corbyn about Hamas. The former party leader, known for his far-left stance, opted for a ceasefire discussion rather than directly addressing whether Hamas should be classified as a terror group. The exchange escalated into a heated yelling match, with Corbyn expressing frustration at Morgan’s line of questioning.


Corbyn’s reluctance to denounce Hamas has historical context, as the opposition party suspended him in 2020 for mishandling accusations of anti-Semitism within his staff. An investigation revealed “inexcusable” actions, violating equality regulations. Despite this, Corbyn has remained active in pro-Palestinian demonstrations, maintaining a position that Hamas’s governance in Gaza is not for him or others to decide.

The controversy adds to Corbyn’s already strained relationship with his party, underscoring ongoing tensions surrounding his approach to critical issues. Cleverly’s confirmation of Hamas as a terror group reflects a clear governmental stance, emphasizing the complexities of international relations and the challenges in addressing sensitive geopolitical matters.
