Recently released documents that were made public under the freedom of information order, in compliance with the duty of candour in our ongoing legal action against the the British government for banning Robert Spencer and me, it was revealed reveal that a chief reason why we were banned from the country was because we strongly support Israel.
In one of them, an official in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office whose name was redacted wrote this letter on May 7 to a recipient, whose name was also redacted:
I have received initial feedback from Post to say that they do not expect that there would be any reaction from the US Administration to these exclusions.
We do have concerns with some of the reasoning in the sub, particularly citing pro-Israeli views and. [sic] Pro-Israeli views (and also support for waterboarding) apply to a large number of Americans, including former Presidents. If, for instance, Geller and Spencer were to request details of their exclusion under FOI/DPA or other mechanism, that being pro-Israeli is cited as a reason may be problematic and they could argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel.
The deeply ingrained antisemitism of the British government is made even more plain by their allowing Jew-hating imams into the country to speak and this latest entry approval.
The Home Secretary Theresa May failed to ban the Nazi leader, Gábor Vona, from the UK. He arrived on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, when his party and its politicians openly express repulsive antisemitic views. Despite calls to bar entry, the Home Secretary welcomed him to speak in Britain. Apparently, Home Secretary Theresa May thinks Nazi leaders are conducive to the public good but pro-Israel voices are banned.

BBC: Calls are mounting for the Home Secretary Theresa May to ban Hungarian far-right Jobbik party leader Gabor Vona from entering the UK.
Labour MP Frank Dobson and London Assembly Member Andrew Dismore urged the Home Office and Metropolitan Police to act to prevent potential unrest.
Mr Vona plans to stage a political rally in central London on Sunday, the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day.
Mr Vonas Jobbik party has been accused of holding strong anti-Semitic views, and of fuelling hatred against the Jewish and Roma communities.
It is the most successful extreme right organisation in Europe, with three seats in the EU parliament and 44 in the Hungarian Parliament.
It has been linked to far-right parties in the EU such as the BNP, the French Front National and Greeces Golden Dawn.
Mr Vona, who founded the now-outlawed Magyar Garda Mozgalom paramilitary group, is set to speak to Hungarian expatriates at the event in London.
Mr Dismore who originally proposed the UKs Holocaust Memorial Day has written to Ms May demanding that Mr Vona be banned from holding the event.
He called Jobbik the most powerful outwardly fascist political party in Europe.
And Labours shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper told the Jewish News she had called on Ms May to look at whether the Jobbik leaders visit was conducive to the public good.
Campaigners Hope Not Hate also plan to hand a petition to the Home Office calling for Mr Vona to be excluded from the UK.
A Home Office spokesman said: We do not comment on individual cases or if someone is under consideration for exclusion.
Mr Vona has denied allegations he is meeting members of Greeces Golden Dawn party who have openly expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and the BNP on Sunday.
A spokeswoman for Mr Vona said that he was hosting a forum for Hungarian citizens in Britain ahead of a forthcoming election.
She said that claims to the contrary were false, adding: He has no intention of meeting anyone from Golden Dawn or the British National Party.
This is a forum for Hungarian citizens. This is not to do with anyone else. There are lots of Hungarians living in London and the election is coming up in Hungary.

UK government, like USA government , is now serving Satan.
Jobbik gets labels just like the Tea Party gets labels, and the labels come from the same source.
It is particularly easy to put words in either of the right wing parties mouths because if you aren’t born into the language there is a 99% chance you won’t learn it of your own volition. There is one set of talking points floating around and all of the press keeps repeating the lies until they are accepted as the truth.
It’s no different than the Republicans are racist mantra we’ve heard ad nauseum.
Another point, the victor gets to write history but that doesn’t make it the truth.

“Jobbik gets labels just like the Tea Party gets labels, and the labels come from the same source.”
All of the “Far-Right” parties of Europe I can think of aren’t so “right-wing” to begin with. The Communist paradigm of “Left” and “Far-Right” is simply very common in the European media.
In looking at http://jobbik.com/policies they don’t sound that far right to me.
That’s no surprise. It’s the British government. Over the past decade, they’ve charged several Jewish Israeli leaders with crimes and vowed to arrest them, if they landed in the UK. They’ve boycotted Israel and posted neo-Nazi cartoons in British publications (including the Blood Libeal Canard), also over the past few years.
The deeply ingrained antisemitism of the British government is made even more plain by their allowing Jew-hating imams into the country to speak and this latest entry approval. The Home Secretary Theresa May failed to ban the Nazi leader, Gábor Vona, from the UK. He arrived on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, when his party and its politicians openly express repulsive antisemitic views. Despite calls to bar entry, the Home Secretary welcomed him to speak in Britain. Apparently, Home Secretary Theresa May thinks Nazi leaders are "conducive to the public good" but pro-Israel voices are banned. The Jobbik party loves Islam and hates Israel, so they cannot be banned...
That’s why I put “Far-Right” in quotes.
I think the major difference that Geller overlooks is that the UK government can’t refuse entry to an EU citizen.
The paragraph breaks were in there, but the server took them out.
sure they can’t
I don’t see anything to suggest Jobbik “admires” Islam.
Geert Wilders is an EU citizen and was banned by the UK, had to fight that in court.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you
Britain in the past sent missionaries to all corners of the globe. Now, by its actions, it is cursed. Ichabod.
Jobbik are traitors to Hungary just like the Arrow Cross. Instead of being Nazi collaborators and puppets, Jobbik gets funding from Iran. Germans occupied Hungary for centuries. Hungarian nationalism was founded to liberate Hungary. Yet the cowardly Magyars lacked the will or sense to shoot the traitors in Arrow Cross for pissing on the graves 1848 and calling themselves “nationalists”. Today is no different. Hungary fought Islamic invasion for centuries and was occupied, raped and pillaged by the Ottoman Caliphate. Yet, the traitors in Jobbik get funding from Iran and don’t cower in fear of being shot as traitors.
The British govt has not charged any Israeli with crimes, nor has it boycotted Israel. Anti-Israeli pressure groups in the UK have advocated the above. Groups and indivduals, not the British govt, which remains a close ally of Israel.
We work closely with that nation politically, militarally, and in intelligence work. To say the ‘British govt’ has done what you claimed is utterly wrong.
As to cartoons, whilst there are certainly major leftwing newspapers who are openly very critical of Israel, to suggest actual neo-Nazi cartoons are printed in major UK newspapers is also hyperbole. UK press rules would not allow such open bigotry.
And won if I remember correctly.
