British media sources are reporting that the bloggers Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) and Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) have been banned from entering the UK. They were banned as their entry was considered to be “not conducive to the public good,” following a campaign by left-wing activists to block their entry into the country.

The two bloggers were planning on attending and speaking at a rally in Woolwich organized by the right-wing EDL (English Defense League). Woolwich is the location were British soldier Drummer Lee Rigby was beheaded by a Muslim man in May.

The EDL is a street protest movement which opposes what it considers to be a spread of Islamism, Sharia law and Islamic extremism in the United Kingdom.

But Geller and Spencer shouldn’t think themselves exceptional here. Likud MK Feiglin is permanently banned from entering the UK, while other Israeli government officials have been afraid to enter England under threat of arrest. At one time that even included the left-wing Minister Tzipi Livni, for her involvement in defending Israel against the attacks from Gaza.

  1. The Brits (and any country for that matter e.g. The French) deserve all the mad Islamists they get for not standing up against this scourge. Enjoy your Islamization!

  2. Quran (2:191-193) – "And slay them wherever yes find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah." The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). The use of the word "persecution" by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution – "idtihad" – and oppression – a variation of "z-l-m" – do not appear in the verse). The actual Arabic comes from "fitna" which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until "religion is for Allah" – ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.

  4. What else is new? The British have been known for their antisemitism for years. Hitler at the beginning even did not want to go to war with Britain because he thought that they share the same values of hating the Jews. It is obviously one of the reasons that he allowed the British army to evacuate from Dunkirk even though he could easily destroy them.
    The British did they utmost to block the entry visas from the European Jews trying to flee the Nazis and only reluctantly took in a small amount of Jewish children that they nevertheless separated from their parents most of whom later perished in the Holocaust. It is a historical, although often ‘conveniently’ forgotten fact that the first people killed by the British during WWII were not Germans, but the Jewish refugees trying to enter the Mandated Palestine. The Royal Navy was placed around the shores of the British Mandate and diligently sinking any ship with the Jewish refugees. After the war, when Nazi atrocities became known, the British started instead to direct the refugee ships to the camps in Cyprus, probably out of concern to be equaled with the Nazis. The irony in all this is that even such a murderous tyrant as Stalin allowed the Jewish refugees, especially those from Poland, to enter Russia and allowed them to leave after the war.
    When the German army occupied a small British island in the British Channel, the first think the local police did was to collect all few local Jews living there and presenting them to the Germans. Since it was a regular army, not SS units in charge of exterminating the Jews, the Germans sent them home. These Jews survived the war and later immigrated to Israel to tell their story, that, unfortunately, still most people do not know. I’m sure that should the Germans had occupied the British Islands, the local population would have started to kill their Jews with no less gusto than Ukrainians and Latvians.
    The British are even the fathers of the current Middle Eastern crisis. They were given the Mandate Palestine by the League of Nations in order to create a Jewish state there. Instead, they created an Arab state –Jordan – on 70 percent of its territory by bringing the Hashemite dynasty from the Saudi Arabia and allowed unrestricted Arab immigration to the rest of the territory while blocking most of the Jews to get there, even knowing that these very Jews would be killed by the Nazis later. In 1948, during the War of Independence the Jordanian military, under command of British officers occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem. All the Jewish residents were either killed or expelled, about 70 synagogues were destroyed and often used as latrines and thus the east Jerusalem became known as ‘traditionally Arab Jerusalem’ as the press loves to call it.
    Now the Britain is the leader in boycotting the Israeli institutions. The irony is that despite the consistent pro-Arab and pro-Muslim policy by the Britain, their local Muslims periodically commit terrorist acts, killing the local population. Which brings me to conclusion: you cannot be an ally with the Devil, regardless how hard you try.

  5. The British are not any more or less anti semitic than anyone else in the world. WW2 was an exception as the entire world was reeling from a Great Depression and everyone was doing everything possible to prevent a world war from occurring. You seem to have forgotten that it was President Lincoln who ordered US Grant to forcibly exile all of the Jews from the Tennessee Valley during The War Between The States. Great Britain in modern times,(last 800 years) never exiled the Jews the way the USA did.
