John Hulsman warns of Corbyn’s “dangerous” foreign policy.

John Hulsman speakerWriting for City Am, expert geopolitical speaker, John Hulsman, argues that Jeremy Corbyn, currently the front runner to win the Labour party’s leadership contest, is advocating foreign policies which are ‘simplistic’. Hulsman argues that all policy makers must accept that in an imperfect world, they must often work with the ‘least bad’ option.

In the context of Middle East politics, Hulsman criticises Corbyn’s support for Palestinian resistance to Israel. For all its mistakes, Isreal remains the ‘only democracy of note’ in an increasingly volatile region, and by far the strongest military power.  Only by maintaining our relationship with Israel does the West have any chance of reaching genuine peace in the Middle East.

Secondly, Corbyn aspires to distance the UK from its close alliance with the US on account of a number or foreign policy blunders since the Second World War. Again, Hulsman believes Corbyn is missing the bigger picture.  Despite mistakes, America has ‘kept the global peace for 70 years’, and when we compare it to other powers seeking global dominance – Hitler, Stalin or the Kaiser – America has been the only viable option over the last century as world leader. To turn its back on its closest ally, argues Hulsman, would only serve to harm the UK.
