Spencer and Geller banned from U.K. for being pro-Israel

From the Daily Caller (see also Spencer’s Jihad Watch and Geller’s Atlasshrugs websites for more info):

“The British government tried to cover its tracks. But a new cache of documents Robert Spencer and I have received in our battle to overturn our being banned from Britain reveal that a chief reason why we were banned from the country was because we strongly support Israel. As part of our lawsuit against the Queen of England and the Home Secretary et al, we have received numerous documents between the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Office of Security and Counterterrorism, and the Home Secretary. In one of them, an official in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office whose name was redacted wrote this letter on May 7 to a recipient whose name was also redacted:”

I have received initial feedback from Post to say that they do not expect that there would be any reaction from the US Administration to these exclusions.

We do have concerns with some of the reasoning in the sub, particularly citing pro-Israeli views and. [sic] Pro-Israeli views (and also support for waterboarding) apply to a large number of Americans, including former Presidents. If, for instance, Geller and Spencer were to request details of their exclusion under FOI/DPA or other mechanism, that being pro-Israeli is cited as a reason may be problematic and they could argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel.

Among the papers providing the rationale for Geller were statements such as “She strongly supports Israel and is an ardent Zionist” and “Pamela Geller’s outspoken support for Israel may also attract pro-Palestinian groups to attend, further complicating the policing operation on the ground and making it harder to keep opposing groups apart.” Check out Jihad Watch for info on the dossier they had on Spencer for barring him from entering the U.K.

    The British have always been pro-Arab in many of their dealings. They created a bogus Jordanian state on the lands called the Palestine of the British Mandate that was attributed fully to the Jewish people when the lands was basically empty of inhabitants. At that time, they prevented Jews from settling to the East of the dead sea and asked Arabs to settle in Jordan, basically stealing the entire Jordan land from the Jewish people.

      I like most of the British people individually, but their leaders’ treatment of others has been problematic for many years. There are those in the UK that support their leaders’ anti-Semitic views and actions. They have not really been pro-Arab and only use their “pro-Arab” stance as a means to be anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

    I notice the UK is letting in Richard Falk (the UN expert on Israel/Palestine) even though he promotes 9/11 conspiracies and general Jew hate. Apparently he isn’t a threat to public order. I guess since Jews don’t stage riots, burn building and kill people when somebody insults us, it’s okay to spread Jew hate.

    • Lynne says :

      Mike, those who make those decisions to let in people like Falk, while keeping Pamela Geller out are truly vile and EVIL. Ditto for those who support those decisions. They do no favors to the Palestinians or others who hate the Jewish people, because no one benefits from brainwashing and being filled with hatred. It’s disgusting and frankly, horrifying.
