Jew With A View

Pretty soon if you search for the word ‘hypocrisy’ in a dictionary, it will read ’see Great Britain’.

Remember how the British Home Secretary was so swift to ban Dutch MP Geert Wilders from the UK - after protests and threats from Muslims?
Yet a mere eight weeks on, and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has happily allowed in two leading advocates for Islamic terrorism.

Both spoke at the House of Commons last week at a pro-Palestinian meeting organised by a far-left Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn.

And who are these lovers of terrorism that the UK has welcomed with open arms?

Hussein Al Hajj Hassan, is a member of Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.

Dyab Abou Jahjah, is a Belgian who has published some of the most hateful anti-Semitic cartoons seen since WW2.

One of his drawings showed Adolf Hitler and 15-year-old Holocaust victim Anne Frank both naked in bed with the caption: “Write that in your diary, Anne”.

Does Jacqui Smith have any working brain cells left? To reiterate: this is less than two months after she publicly banned anti-Muslim Dutch MP Geert Wilders from entering the UK.

Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: “There seems to be absolutely no consistency in the decisions that the Home Secretary is taking.”

Yet should we even be surprised at this rank hypocrisy? After all, throughout the 90s, London was positively seething with Islamic terrorist groups, despite the heads of several European intelligence agencies warning the British about the dangers of letting Islamists use London as their personal recruiting pool.

As a Brit myself, I truly feel like screaming with frustration at the behaviour of our Home Secretary. One can only conclude that she is too busy trying to stop her porn-watching twit of a husband from fiddling her expense account again, to be safeguarding British standards and safety.

The day she leaves/is fired, I will be cracking open the Champagne.
