Two of the leading and more controversial anti-Islamic Jihad activists in the United States have been banned from entering the United Kingdom, as reported by Front Page Magazine via Google News on June 27, 2013.
Anti-terror activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer planned on attending a wreath laying ceremony in England for slain British soldier Lee Rigby.
The drummer assigned to the Royal Fusiliers was publicly beheaded by two Muslim terrorist shouting the al-Qaeda war cry of “Allahu Akbar” as they decapitated him last May on a London street.
The U.K. equivalent to the American Departments of Justice and Homeland Security rolled into one, the British Home Office denied Geller and Spencer’s permission to enter the country due to “your presence here is not conducive to the public good.”
The duo recently made headlines in their joint “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad” ad campaign in San Francisco and New York City.
In the meantime, Geller and Spencer issued a joint statement as cited by the left-of-center Huffington Post:
In a striking blow against freedom, the British government has banned us from entering the country.
Muhammad al-‘Arifi, who has advocated Jew-hatred, wife-beating, and jihad violence, entered the U.K. recently with no difficulty.
In not allowing us into the country solely because of our true and accurate statements about Islam, the British government is behaving like a de facto Islamic state.
The nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead.
The HuffPo also reported that according to the Home Office there is no right to appeal their decision to deny Geller and Spencer entry, but it may be reviewed in three to five years.
Late last week, the United Kingdom allowed Saudi Arabian cleric Sheikh Muhammad al-‘Arifi to enter the island nation, as reported by the British news network Sky News. According to the report, al-‘Arifi advocates Muslim husbands beating their spouses as a means to “discipline” their wives. But the Islamic preacher does add the caveat, “he must beat her lightly.”
Examiner.com recently reported that besides wife beatings, the controversial al-‘Arifi has also issued a fatwa (Islamic ruling) allowing the following:
- Syrian rebels raping Muslim women in the war torn nation as the sexual assault “boosts the determination of the Mujahideen in Syria.”
- Girls and women from throughout the Muslim world should consider it a religious duty to make their way to Syria as so they can prostitute themselves to the insurgents.
When contacted by Sky News for comment, the British Home Office stated it “would not comment on individual cases.”
