(dailyalert.org, Apr. 18, 2014)
Sajid Javid, the first Asian male Conservative minister, was appointed Culture Secretary last week.
Speaking at a Conservative Friends of Israel event in 2012, he described himself as: “a proud, British-born Muslim” whose father came from Pakistan.
He said that if he had to settle in the Middle East, he would opt for Israel, “the only nation in the Middle East that shares the same democratic values as Britain.”
