London’s extremist Muslim Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has been slammed by members of the capital’s Jewish community over his refusal to ban Sunday’s anti-Israel al-Quds (Arabic for ‘Jerusalem’) Day march and its traditional display of flags (below) supporting the Hezbollah terrorist organization.
Breitbart Raphi Bloom, chairman of North West Friends of Israel group, told Breitbart News that despite repeated lobbying of Mr. Khan and a petition supported by almost 20,000 signatures calling for the event to be cancelled, the city’s leader has remained steadfast in his refusal to intervene.
“Hezbollah is a proscribed terrorist organisation. It makes NO distinction between its armed and political wing, yet its supporters will be allowed to march through London’s streets unhindered,” Mr. Bloom said. “This is extremely disappointing and challenges the mayor’s commitment to rid the streets of London of extremism.
“For many years this march has been rife with anti-Semitism and the fulsome support of a terrorist organisation – Hezbollah. Hezbollah is currently massacring Syrian civilians on behalf of President Assad and is funded by Iran – one of the major supporters of global terrorism in the world today.
As Breitbart Jerusalem reported, Al Quds Day was begun by the late Ayatollah Khomeini to call for Israel to be destroyed. Organisers claim it “unites for the freedom of the oppressed in Palestine and beyond” and it is co-run by the Islamic Human Rights Commissionis to coincide with the end of Ramadan.
Hezbollah is an illegal, anti-Semitic terrorist organisation and its flags are flown on the day to honour the terrorist group sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state. The group is designated as a terror organization in its entirety by the Arab League, Bahrain, Canada, France, Israel, the Netherlands, and the United States.
