"They have sided with and defended some of the most appalling individuals and terrorist groups.

“In any other circumstances, I am not sure Jeremy Corbyn or Diane Abbott would even get security clearance. Their backgrounds alone would be enough to set alarm bells ringing.”

Mr Corbyn has been criticised for meeting convicted members of the IRA and for laying a wreath at the grave of a Palestinian leader linked to the Munich Olympic massacre.

He claimed the wreath was laid in memory of those killed during a 1985 bombing of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation Headquarters in Tunis.

Last week he said ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi should have been arrested and put on trial following his death after he detonated a suicide vest after being the target of a US raid.

Ms Patel said: “This is a man who for decades has sided with our foes and spurned our allies.

“You only have to look at the kind of organisations he subscribes to, the company he keeps and the things he says.

“Corbyn’s comments on the death of al-Baghdadi a few days ago speak volumes.”
