The former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, who planned to travel to the UK as part of a delegation organized by the pro-Palestinian group EuroPal, has been barred from entering the country.
Sheikh Sabri has long wished death upon Britain and the US and has a history of spewing anti-Semitic hate speech. He currently is the imam of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. Breitbart Israel reported he was scheduled to be in the UK from Sep. 11 to 15, with a trip to the Parliament on his itinerary.
Christians United for Israel (CUFI) reported that they sent an email to MPs informing them they have been successful in preventing the sheikh and one other member of the touring party from entering the country as they have “both been unsuccessful in obtaining an entry visa for technical reasons, and therefore will not be joining the delegation.”
CUFI had previously launched a petition to block the trip that currently stands with over 18,000 signatures of support (see below).
In an interview with Breitbart last month, Sheikh Sabri said that it was a “victory” when Israel recently decided to remove metal detectors from his mosque.
He mentioned that “the struggle still isn’t over.”
He has also been extremely anti-Semitic in the past, outright denying the Holocaust saying: “Six million Jews dead? No way, they were much fewer. Let’s stop with this fairy tale exploited by Israel to capture international solidarity.”
Sabri has called for the destruction of the UK and Britain, stating Jews are “the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created” and he is “filled with rage” towards them.
