“I am writing to advise you that following the London bombings in July 2005, the Home Secretary announced a list of particular activities that would normally lead to a person being excluded or deported from the UK ” ¦ The list of unacceptable behaviours covers:
-writing, producing, publishing or distributing material;
-public speaking including preaching;
-running a website;
-using a position of responsibility such as a teacher, community or youth leader
To express views that:
-foment or justify terrorist violence in furtherance of particular beliefs;
-seek to provoke others to terrorist acts;
-foment other serious criminal activity or seek to provoke others to serious criminal acts;
-foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK.
The Home Secretary has considered whether, in light of this list, you should be excluded from the United Kingdom. After careful consideration, she has personally directed that you should be excluded from the United Kingdom” ¦”
British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, who heads the ministry responsible for counter-terrorism, recently sent the above quoted letter to a recipient in the Middle East. ‚ It is worrying to realize who the recipient was and what that implies about Britain’s role in the global struggle against radical Islam.
Was it sent to a Hezbollah official in Lebanon or Iran? ‚ Not a chance; “Army of Allah” officials are always welcome guests in the UK. ‚ Ibrahim Moussawi, Hezbollah’s chief propagandist, recently concluded a British “speaking tour” with no objections from Ms. Smith’s Home Office.
Perhaps it was sent to a radical imam or cleric somewhere in the Gulf? ‚ Wrong again; Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi was successfully granted a visa five out of the last six times that he has applied. ‚ Al-Qaradawi, a Muslim Brotherhood affiliated cleric, is known for praising terrorist attacks against Israelis and Americans, calling for the destruction of Israel, and stating that homosexuals should “be put to death” . ‚ During his last trip to Britain, where he chaired the annual meeting of the European Council of Fatwa and Research at London’s City Hall, London mayor Ken Livingston compared him to the Pope.
Shamefully, this letter was sent to a politician in the Jewish State. ‚ Moshe Feiglin, the head of the Jewish Leadership faction within the Likud party, initially had thought that the letter was a prank, as he had no intentions of visiting the UK and had not applied for a visa. ‚ He was shocked to learn that the letter was indeed authentic and that Britain had become the first nation on earth that banned his presence.
