What deserves unequivocal condemnation?

Since 1 January 2018, how about:

1 January – two rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

3 January – four rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

2 February – two rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

17/18 February – Multiple rockets fired from Gaza at Israel

29 May – 70 rockets and mortars fired at Israel

3 June – 3 rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

18 June – 3 rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

20 June – 45 rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

27 June – 13 rockets fired from Gaza to Israel

14 July –  174 rockets or mortar shells fired from Gaza to Israel

How about thousands of arson attacks which sparked thousands of fires, burning many thousands of acres of land, killing wildlife and terrorising the population?

How about this famous peace activist making a plea to Hamas to stop the violence and prevent the inevitable response from Israel? Nah, nada, nothing.

How about this famous antiracist challenging Hamas for targeting Jews and openly expressing their desires to murder them? Yes, you guessed it, nah, nada, nothing.

Ah, but wait, now Corbyn is woke. What deserves unequivocal condemnation is Israel defending its people and targeting the terrorists massing on their borders and  firing rockets from ‘cultural’ centres. You see if only the Jews would understand that if they didn’t defend themselves, everyone would love them. Maybe even Corbyn would get round to laying a wreath on their graves.
