Jeremy Corbyn and Holocaust denial

The Times today reports that 'Jeremy Corbyn has said that Holocaust deniers are vile and wrong...'

Unfortunately he also calls 'friends' Hamas and Hezbollah. 

That's Hamas who in 2000 said:
'The so-called Holocaust, […] is an alleged and invented story with no basis. . . . The invention of these grand illusions of an alleged crime that never occurred, […] clearly reveals the racist Zionist face, which believes in the superiority of the Jewish race over the rest of the nations."'
That's Hamas whose Charter says Jewish people "have only negative traits and are presented as planning to take over the world." 

That's Hamas whose Charter claims that the Jews deserve God's/Allah's enmity and wrath because they received the Scriptures but violated its sacred texts, disbelieved the signs of Allah, and slew their own prophets. 

That's Hamas whose Charter quotes a saying of Muhammad from a hadith: 
"The Day of Judgement will not come until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say, 'O Muslim, O servant of God, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.' Only the Gharkad tree would not do that, because it is one of the trees of the Jews."
That's Hezbollah whose leader Hassan Nasrallah, speaking at the Shi'ite Moslem "Ashura" flagellation ceremony on 9 April 2000, said:
"The Jews invented the legend of the Nazi atrocities.... Anyone who reads the Koran and the holy writings of the monotheistic religions sees what they did to the prophets, and what acts of madness and slaughter the Jews carried out throughout history.... Anyone who reads these texts cannot think of co-existence with them, of peace with them, or about accepting their presence, not only in Palestine of 1948 but even in a small village in Palestine, because they are a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment."'
That's Hezbollah whose leader Hassan Nasrallah was reported to have said:
"if [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide."
That's Hezbollah whose leader Hassan Nasrallah who also said:
"If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli."
If Jeremy Corbyn calls Hamas and Hezbollah his 'friends'  despite their Holocaust denial and their rampant & overt anti Semitism then pardon me if I don't put much credence in Jeremy Corbyn's denunciations of Holocaust deniers.
