CUFI challenges Amber Rudd on Hezbollah silence

CUFI has challenged Amber Rudd in response to reports this week of the Home Secretary ignoring calls to ban Hezbollah in its entirety. It comes as a CUFI-UK petition approached 13,000 signatures.

CUFI points out in a letter to the Home Secretary that the Government’s present approach is focused too much on the use of the flag and not on the terrorist organisation behind the flag.

Britain has only banned its “military” arm but not its “political” wing, despite Hezbollah themselves not differentiating between the two, meaning there is a legal loophole allowing open support for a terrorist organisation on the streets of Britain.

This week at the Conservative Conference

Theresa May slams Corbyn for allowing “anti-Semitism, misogyny and hatred” to “run free”

Prime Minister Theresa May used a part of her speech at the annual Conservative Party conference to slam Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for allowing “anti-Semitism, misogyny and hatred run free” in his party.

Theresa May’s speech was interrupted by a “prankster” who presented her with a P45. She used the interruption to launch an attack on opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying, “I was about to talk about somebody that I would like to give a P45 to, and that’s Jeremy Corbyn.”

Edmonton attack “not terrorism” despite ISIS flag and radical Islamic views

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a 30-year-old Somalian immigrant, ran over five people using two separate vehicles, he stabbed a police officer multiple times in the head, he had an Islamic State flag in his car, he had been investigated in 2015 for “espousing extremist views” and to top it off, even Prime Minister Trudeau called it a "terrorist attack".

This attack was exactly the same type of attack that has rocked Europe and Israel. However, Canadian authorities have refused to charge him with terrorism offenses.
