Summary: 

Speaking on Press TV, the Iranian-run channel he was formerly  tens of thousands of pounds to appear on even after it was banned in the UK, Mr Corbyn  that the BBC was under pressure from Israel and that the supposed proof is that “there is a bias towards saying…Israel has a right to exist”.

Through the clip is incomplete, it appears to show that Mr Corbyn thinks that it is debatable whether Israel has a right to exist. We do not believe that Mr Corbyn has said the same about other countries.
