The former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, has been barred from entering the UK as part of a delegation organised by the pro-Palestinian group EuroPal.
Sheikh Sabri is the current imam of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. He has previously called for the destruction of Britain and the U.S. as well as displaying a long record of anti-Semitic hate speech. As Breitbart Jerusalem reported, he was due to be in Britain from 11 to 15 September with a visit to the Houses of Parliament on his itinerary.
Christians United for Israel (CUFI) report they have seen an email sent to all MPs informing them the sheikh and one other member of the touring party have “both been unsuccessful in obtaining an entry visa for technical reasons, and therefore will not be joining the delegation.”
