UK bans Nofal entry

12:00 Jun 30 2011 Queen Alia International Airpot, Amman, Jordan

AMMAN (PIC) 1 July -- Airport authorities in Queen Alia airport in the Jordanian capital Amman have banned Thursday prominent Muslim preacher Dr.Ahmad Nofal from boarding the airplane to London, saying the ban was requested by the British Embassy in Jordan that issued him the visa.

According to the authorities, the ban was based on the same reasons that led to the arrest of Sheikh Raed Salah, the head of the Muslim Movement in the 1948-occupied Palestine, for his support to the Palestinian issue ... Birawi also accused the Zionist lobby in Britain of being behind the move to ban Nofal and Salah from lecturing in the UK, saying that the Zionist lobby started to feel the danger of delegitimizing the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and of unveiling its criminal nature against the Palestinian people.

Nofal was the target of a smear campaign by pro-Israel media outlets accusing him of hatred to Jews and Judaism in order to prevent him from participating in the Palestine Day festival organized yearly by the Forum although he did so many times in the past years.
