This does not mean that the British government is finally coming to its senses. All it means is that there was a large-scale campaign to get Sabri barred from entering the country, and the government was embarrassed into complying. The May government still has a long record of admitting jihad preachers and barring foes of jihad terror, and in those cases was able to get away with this because there was no large public outcry calling the government back to sanity. And so its insanity is likely to continue, and result in future bannings of foes of jihad, and future admittance of friends of jihad.
The May government has made its priorities clear: offending Muslims and Islam is far, far more serious than jihad terror or the sexual abuse of Infidel girls. To move strongly against such crimes would be “Islamophobic.” The British authorities have made their taste for jihad terrorists, and disdain for their foes, abundantly clear. While I am banned from the country for the crime of noting — correctly — that Islam has doctrines of warfare against unbelievers, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.
The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.
“Entry Denied: Anti-Semitic Hate Preacher Barred From Visiting UK,” by Simon Kent, Breitbart, September 5, 2017:
The former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, has been barred from entering the UK as part of a delegation organised by the pro-Palestinian group EuroPal.
Sheikh Sabri is the current imam of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. He has previously called for the destruction of Britain and the U.S. as well as displaying a long record of anti-Semitic hate speech. As Breitbart Jerusalem reported, he was due to be in Britain from 11 to 15 September with a visit to the Houses of Parliament on his itinerary….
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Jerusalem’s Ali Waked last month, Sheikh Sabri declared Israel’s recent decision to remove metal detectors from the disputed Al-Aqsa Mosque site on the Temple Mount was a “victory.”…
In the past he has flatly denied the Holocaust, stating: “Six million Jews dead? No way, they were much fewer. Let’s stop with this fairy tale exploited by Israel to capture international solidarity.” He has also called for the destruction of America and Britain, adding Jews are “the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created” and he is “filled with rage” towards them.
