- Mayor of London Calls to Ban Hizbullah
- has written to Sajid Javid, the new Home Secretary, asking him to ban Hizbullah in order to prevent displays of the group’s flag on London’s streets. It comes days ahead of the annual Al Quds Day march in London, at which the flag has been flown in recent years. Hizbullah is already banned in the U.S., Canada and Arab League countries. “I genuinely think if you allow some hatred to be seen to be acceptable, that can soon spread not just to name-calling but to criminal damage and violence and ultimately lives being lost,” Khan said.
“There are places of worship in London that, because they’re Jewish places of worship, need security because they’re synagogues. That can’t be right,” he added. (Jewish News-UK)
