Hamas, the fundamentalist Islamic terrorist organization known for its attacks against Israel and Israeli citizens, is running a Facebook page in support of British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, according to an Israeli news agency.

The page, called "We Support Jeremy Corbyn," currently has about 70,000 subscribers. It was previously run by a key player in Hamas' propaganda wing, a Gaza resident named Walid Abu Rouk. The page itself states that it is "not an official group connected to either the Labour Party or Jeremy Corbyn personally."

Corbyn was slammed earlier this year for his approving 2011 forward to a book that utilized numerous antisemitic tropes, including the claim that European banking was controlled by "men of a single and peculiar race."
