Man fined for race hate emails to Board

    A man who pleaded guilty to sending racist and antisemitic emails to the Board of Deputies has been fined £700.

    Mahmer Khammesh, 54, pleaded guilty at Highbury Corner magistrates’ court to sending offensive messages by a public network.

    He must pay a £700 fine, plus court costs.

    In October 2008, Khammesh was convicted of three charges of communications offences. His email targets then included the JC, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Foreign Secretary David Miliband, and then Chelsea manager Avram Grant.

    In emails to the Board of Deputies, Khammesh wrote: “Evil and nasty terrorist Jews and their wicked and inhumane Zionist filth will never reap the rewards of terrorism. These evil Jewish scum will never have Palestine.”

    In another he wrote: “This English Kingdom is not a safe haven for Jewish terrorists, and all their dirty funding.”

    In the emails, many of which Khammesh also sent to more than 100 MPs and the media, the targets of his attacks include Gordon Brown and Tony Blair, as well as Jews, and he claims that he is being followed by the Crown Prosecution Service and MI6.
