These bans are increasingly status symbols — of goodness and greatness. Several years ago, I was banned from entering the UK because of my opposition to jihad terror — while jihad preachers stream into the UK regularly with no problem. My banning was a manifestation of Britain’s appeasement of and capitulation to the jihad force. When Western historians look back at the 21st century, the Geller ban in the UK will be viewed as one of the UK’s darkest moments for freedom. It was the victory of Islamic law over Western law, sharia over freedom.
When Prime Minister Theresa May threw us under the bus in order to satiate savages who threatened violence, did she really think she or anyone would be safe? Safe by surrender? When did they ever work in the history of humankind?
It is increasingly clear that in the case of the UK, those who are banned are the ones who are telling the truth and standing for freedom. The ban is a badge of honor. And it’s the same thing in this case: now Pence is banned from “Palestine” because of President Trump’s righteous recognition that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
This is a ban I covet — then again, I pray never to be in “Palestine” in my lifetime.
“PA: VP Pence ‘unwelcome’ after J’lm recognition,” by David Rosenberg, Arutz Sheva, December 7, 2017:
The Palestinian Authority announced Thursday that Vice President Mike Pence would not be welcomed during his visit to Israel later this month, following President Donald Trump’s announcement Wednesday recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordering the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
On Wednesday, President Trump broke with decades-old American policy by formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, and declaring his intentions to move the US embassy to the Israeli capital. The move drew criticism from European allies and threats from across the Middle East….
Vice President Pence is expected to visit Israel from December 17th to the 19th, and had been scheduled to meet with both Israeli and PA leaders.
Pence is also expected to address the Knesset, making him the first senior US official to do so since President Bush spoke before the Israeli parliament in 2008.
The Vice President had planned to meet with PA chief Mahmoud Abbas during the trip, but has apparently been snubbed following Trump’s Wednesday declaration on Jerusalem.
Senior Fatah party member Jibril Rajoub said Thursday that the meeting would not take place, saying that Pence “is unwelcome in Palestine”.
“In the name of Fatah I say that we will not welcome Trump’s deputy in the Palestinian Territories. He asked to meet (Abbas) on the 19th of this month in Bethlehem, such a meeting will not take place,” Reuters reported Rajoub as saying.
