This is no surprise. The Home Office some time ago banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.
The bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Just days after Geller and I were banned, the British government admitted Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe. Al-Arefe has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.”
And 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 has granted asylum to Yasser Al-Sirri, a convicted jihad terrorist who advocated violent jihad and the killing of Jews. The UK Home Office also 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.”
Theresa May’s relentlessly appeasement-minded government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country. The asylum application of a Christian family facing a death fatwa in Pakistan was three times rejected. But an ISIS bride was let back in and given a taxpayer-funded house, despite the fact that she has an ISIS flag on her Twitter account. No terror charges for her, of course.
Meanwhile, Manchester jihad mass murderer Salman Abedi trained with a jihad group in Libya, and traveled in and out of UK with no problem.
The British government, in its abject pursuit of support from its rapidly growing Muslim community, has long ago left behind any commitment to basic human decency.
“Iraqi refugee who ran Al Qaeda Twitter account wins right to challenge deportation from UK,” by Nicky Harley, The National, June 23, 2021:
An Iraqi refugee who ran an Al Qaeda social media account from the UK has won the right to appeal against her deportation.
The woman, who was not named in court, posted more than 45,000 tweets in Arabic to more than 8,000 followers.
Her posts encouraged beheadings and urged people to travel abroad to join Al Qaeda and ISIS.
The woman, 29, served a three-and-half-year jail sentence for terrorism offences, after which the Home Office attempted to deport her.
In sentencing, Judge Charles Wide said her conduct had “affected international peace and security”.
She arrived in the UK with her mother aged 15 when she was granted discretionary leave to remain.
But after her conviction, the Home Office removed those rights and refused her application for asylum.
Since Iraq had been designated a dangerous place, she was granted restricted leave to remain, but without the protection of refugee status.
The woman challenged the Home Office’s decision in London’s High Court where Lord Justice Warby granted her the right to appeal.
“It was suggested that she is a danger to the UK community, but the First-Tier Tribunal held that she is not,” he said.
The court heard she was a “prolific poster” on Twitter and Instagram, putting up “50-60 items a day”, many of which were in support of ISIS.
Despite the sentencing judge claiming her Twitter account was one of the leading Al Qaeda sites and encouraged young men to go and fight, the court heard she had suffered trauma while living in Iraq.
Mr Warby said she “had suffered from mental health difficulties, having witnessed traumatic events in Iraq which included being injured in an air strike, seeing dead bodies in the street and witnessing a raid on her grandfather’s house by armed soldiers”.
“She had been diagnosed with PTSD, co-morbid depression, and generalised anxiety disorder and appeared to have been socially isolated for most of her life,” he said….
