Sadiq Khan is a British Politician and current mayor of London
Eleven countries have banned Israelis from entrance: Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
What do all of these countries have in common? Dignitaries from each will be hosted by Sadiq Khan – an outspoken critic of President Trumps travel ban.
Tory London Assembly member Andrew Boff says:
“I fully support the Mayor’s condemnation of President Trump’s divisive travel ban but he should also be willing to condemn those countries that discriminate against citizens from Israel – particularly when he is hosting their representatives at a drinks reception at City Hall.”
UKIP’s Peter Whittle adds:
“Will the Mayor use this occasion to speak out against the 11 countries that permanently ban Israelis? Of course he won’t. Will he rescind their invites to this party, just as he’s calling for the state visit to be stopped? Of course he won’t. Like the protesters yesterday, his outrage is highly selective.”
And Nigel Farage tells Sadiq:
“You want Trump banned from UK but are happy with anti-Israeli discrimination. You are a hypocrite.”
