As Deputies elected by no less than 14 people from across the UK, we speak on behalf of all British Jews in expressing our delight at this ban. Our lobbying played a major role in achieving it.
To ensure that we would never be negatively influenced ourselves by their hate speech, I am pleased to confirm that no Deputy has ever read a word that either Robert Spencer or Pamela Geller has written. However, the Guardian, Al Jazeera, the Socialist Workers Party, George Galloway, Ken Livingstone, Baroness Warsi, as well as every major Islamic Organisation in the UK, have confirmed that Spencer and Geller are racist fanatics who seek nothing less than the death of every Muslim in the world. Even right-wing organisations such as the BBC and the Liberal Democrat Party agree that Spencer and Geller are anti-Muslim bigots. We also note that among the racist fanatics who ‘support’ Spencer and Geller are so-called abused ‘Muslim’ women and homosexuals, and apostates from Islam, who have all ‘testified’ that Geller and Spencer are ‘freedom fighters who counter Jihad oppression’. These so-called ‘Muslims’ are clearly liars, as evidenced by the fact that not one has been interviewed by the BBC.
The Board of Deputies is especially delighted that the banning of Spencer and Geller means that nobody else in the UK will have to hear a single word of their hate-speech. This represents a major success for freedom of speech in the UK, since every politician, news presenter, writer and Imam is now free to make up any claim they wish about the extent of the evil of Spencer and Geller without the fear of being challenged or having to back it up with any facts. The banning of Spencer and Geller also ensures that the British main stream media is free to continue with not having to cover stories about ‘Islamic threats’ around the whole world that Spencer and Geller claim to exist. As Jews we are especially grateful that we can continue to remain blissfully unaware of the multiple threats posed to us by the Islamists. This enables us to continue to work closely with our Muslim partners in combatting the real common threats posed to us and the whole of humanity: the EDL, UKIP, and the Jewish Defence League.
The Board of Deputies’ relentless commitment to freedom of speech is confirmed by its continued support for the right of every Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah and Al Quaeda Imam to come to the UK to preach. Their presence improves community cohesion by uniting Muslims in their hatred of Western values and Jews, while any attempt to ban them would be counterproductive since it would inflame Muslim sensitivity and result in understandable violence, especially against Jews.
The banning of Spencer and Geller is a glorious moment for British Jewry since it has brought us closer to our friends in the Muslim Community. As a sign of our closer cooperation I am delighted to announce that the Board will be delegating all future security arrangements to the Islamic Foundation of Europe, and that our Middle East Policy will be subcontracted to the Muslim Public Affairs Committee.
