US Pastor Terry Jones Banned from Entering UK

Controversial US pastor Terry Jones has been barred from entering the UK for the public good, the Home Office says.

The pastor, who last year planned a Koran-burning protest in the US, had been invited to address right-wing group England Is Ours in Milton Keynes.

The Home Office said Mr Jones could not enter the UK as the government "opposes extremism in all its forms".

Mr Jones told BBC Radio 5 live he would challenge the "unfair" decision and his visit could have been "beneficial".

Mr Jones - who is pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, which has fewer than 50 members - came to prominence last September when he announced plans for his "International Burn a Koran Day" on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

His plan was internationally condemned and sparked many demonstrations around the world before he eventually called off his protest.

'Unacceptable behaviour'

A Home Office spokesman said: "Numerous comments made by Pastor Jones are evidence of his unacceptable behaviour.

"Coming to the UK is a privilege not a right and we are not willing to allow entry to those whose presence is not conducive to the public good.

"The use of exclusion powers is very serious and no decision is taken lightly or as a method of stopping open debate."

Mr Jones said he had not been planning to break any laws while in England

Sabotage of rights

He said he had expected about 100 people to attend events organised for Mr Jones, including about 30 members of England Is Ours.

"It's quite possible that other members of his outreach may be able to come," Mr Taylor said.

"I understand Pastor Jones is planning some visits to nearby European countries and we will be able to go and visit him there," he added.

A press release issued by Stand Up America - which is organising rallies addressed by Mr Jones - said the UK ban exemplified the sabotage of the basic human rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

In December, Home Secretary Theresa May said she was "actively looking at" whether Mr Jones should be banned from entering the UK after the right-wing English Defence League (EDL) had invited him to share his views on Islam at a rally in Luton, Bedfordshire, in February.

However the EDL later withdrew the invitation to Mr Jones. A spokesman said it was because of his critical views on homosexuality and race

Re: US Pastor Terry Jones Banned from Entering UK

Mr Jones had accepted an invitation to speak to England Is Ours in February and was due to address a series of demonstrations against the expansion of Islam and the construction of mosques in the UK.

Barry Taylor, secretary of England Is Ours, said he was "very disappointed" by the decision.

"The whole object of the exercise is to have a discussion about the Islamification of the UK and just have dialogue about the problems," he said.
"The idea isn't to cause trouble or kick up a stink. These things do need addressing and people do need to speak about them. We shouldn't be frightened about them."

Re: US Pastor Terry Jones Banned from Entering UK

The UK is a joke because we a have a media that can't decide if it wants to be right wing or left, a government that secretly is rightwing but pretends not be........ And lets not forget the EDL, a bunch of ex football hooligans that believe everything they read in the SUN, which also I might add, seems to be written in a style that is deliberately antagonistic and outright manipulative. This cuntry(sic) blames everyone else including the USA for its problems when in reality it is because the average citizen is one step removed from Neanderthal man. Blah Blah " the politicians don't listnen to us" ( well, dont vote them in then) " but I dont vote because nothing will change" (well shut the fuck up then and stop complaining) "its the immigrants fault" (why, becuase they are prepared to do the jobs that you see as beneath you?)

One day people has a whole will realise that all religion is, is a form of control that plays on your most basic fear, the fear of the unknown........ Then we might be able to get along........ probably not though.

I couldn't agree more, after all if you don't want to listen to him spouting his shite most reasonable people just ignore him........ The problem comes when the idiot's listen to him (I mean the EDL and the dickheads on the otherside too) They get themselves all flustered and start talking about immigration, cultural identity and social integration. They can't keep to the topic in hand and it ends up becoming a massive shitstorm. The media for their part also play up to this too as a way of trying to get the general population turning against each other and stoking discontent. That leads to the governbent then having to step in and protect us from ourselves by introducing new, more stringent laws and further erroding our rights. Banning this idiot although seems harsh, also seems prudent to me, the general public in the UK can only be trusted to get it wrong due to lack of social awareness and being force fed shit and drivel by the media.

Re: US Pastor Terry Jones Banned from Entering UK

freedom of speech??? sure, if you're a fucking saudi imam spouting anti UK hate speech in a mosque in London....


ridiculous, the reason they lets the muslim cunts get away with their shit is because it keeps the population in fear, and a people in fear are easier to control....should islam come to power then the people will still be easy to control as that is a religion based on fear


it's pathetic....i wish we had some real revolutionary heroes left.
