Extremist Israeli allowed to enter UK
An Israeli with extremist views, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, has been allowed to enter Britain in order to spread his anti-Palestinian and Islamophobic messages in community centres and schools.
On 1st July this year, an interview with Dr Kedar on Israeli Radio was aired on the “Hakol Diburim” (“It’s All Talk”) programme, during which he said: “The only thing that can deter terrorists, like those who kidnapped the children and killed them, is the knowledge that their sister or their mother will be raped.”
Brighton PSC organised a successful protest outside a local meeting with Kedar, pointing out that although it was heartening that other major events due to hear him speak had been cancelled, he was still spreading his ‘toxic’ message locally.
PSC has written to the Home Secretary to protest against Kedar’s entry and to insist that action is taken.
Richard Burden MP talked about the fact that Jerusalem is often forgotten, but is central to Palestinian life. Philipa Harvey talked about the restrictions and difficulties faced by children, prevented from celebrating their own culture in East Jerusalem. Hugh Lanning reminded everyone it is a time for action, and asked people to ensure that they had a happy ‘but not a HP Christmas’!
A full report of the meeting will be available shortly.
