Geller and Spencer were banned from the UK because of their 'pro-Israel views'
In June I reported on the disgraceful decision by the British Government to ban the American anti-Jihadist human-rights campaigners Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the UK. Documents now reveal that they were banned because of their pro-Israel views. I suppose this is entirely consistent with the sentiments of the Foreign Secretary William Hague who last week issued stark threats to Israel not to compromise the deal that allows Iran to get nuclear weapons, and who last year actually threatened to break off diplomatic relations with Israel if they dared to build homes in their capital city Jerusalem.
Remember this the next time Hague (or Cameron) declare to a Jewish audience that they "believe in Israel's right to exist". For the western diplomatic elite the biggest danger to the world is not Iran carrying out its threat to annihilate Israel with a nuclear weapon, but rather Israel's attempts to stop that happening. Just as it is far more concerned at Israel protecting itself from terrorists than the terrorists carrying out atrocities against Israel.
