Oxford Union invites banned anti-Islam activist

Robert Spencer, who is banned from entering the UK, has been invited to debate with Anjem Choudary whether ‘Radicalisation is Born At Home’

In one of her first acts as President of the Oxford Union, Olivia Merrett has invited American author and leader of the group ‘Jihadi Watch’ Robert Spencer to take part in next term’s ‘This House Believes Radicalisation is Born at Home’ debate, along with the radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary.

Robert Spencer, who also co-founded the group ‘Stop Islamization of America’ (SIOA), is banned from entering the UK, following the Home Office’s 2013 decision that his visit would not be “conducive to the public good”, and that his views would be likely to “foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence”.

The ban was issued after he was invited to speak at an EDL rally in Woolwich, where drummer Lee Rigby was killed. At around the same time, Anjem Choudary infamously declared himself “proud” of Michael Adebolajo, one of Rigby’s killers, and insisted that Rigby would “burn in hellfire”…

    The UK government has much to gain by revealing the truth about jihad, but they do not understand that. Normative Islam is supremacist. That is what Choudary has been saying. Robert Spencer will agree on almost everything!

      I suspect the UK government believes it has too much to lose should more citizens learn the truth about the death cult of Islam. Those citizens just might become more difficult to control and oppress.

        Depressingly true.

    Meanwhile the UK is welcoming back many of the Muslim that freely chose to leave and fight for ISIS.
    So remember this folks when London is in flames and the bombs in the Subways caused them to flood beyond use, IT’S Robert Spencer that’s the real threat.

    Miss Merrett is a courageous young woman.

    Let’s take this one step at a time: 1) kindly look at photo above 2) please note message: ‘Sharia will dominate the world’ 3) ‘domination’ would begin in UK, wouldn’t it? 4) show of hands…how many understand the word ‘dominate’ as a threat?

    Somewhere, just somewhere in this world there is a small hunk of copper coated lead itching for the chance to do an exploratory on that asshole Anjem Choudary.

    Theresa May – the wannabe Nazi who banned Robert and Pamela Geller from the UK – is still the Home Secretary there. But let her explain again why Robert Spencer is beyond the pale but Chowder-head is OK.

    I think Spencer should agree to this debate. The debate can be held via Skype or other service if the ban will not be lifted. Spencer would be safer if speaking electronically anyway. Fantastic news.
