Palestinian activist Sheikh Raed Salah’s court victory in his deportation case has implications for both the UK government’s relationships with pro-Israel groups and its anti-terrorism legislation.

Raed Salah wins appeal against deportation from UK: upper tribunal rules Theresa May was "misled"

The news broke last night that Palestinian activist Sheikh Raed Salah had won his appeal against deportation from the UK in the Upper Tier (Immigration) Tribunal in London. My full story will be published on EI soon, including new revelations about the case, and its implications for the government’s Prevent “anti-terrorism” strategy.

It is clear that the Home Secretary has repeatedly exercised poor judgment.

UK anti-Semitism charity CST still spreading Israeli disinformation about Raed Salah

Since last week’s First Tier Tribunal ruling against Raed Salah’s appeal against deportation from the UK, Zionist ideologues have been gloating. But in fact the judgment (now released online) clears Salah of the central government accusation against him: that he wrote an anti-Semitic poem containing the line: “You Jews are criminal bombers of mosques”. This “poem” was fabricated in the context of a long-standing Israeli campaign of attacks, detentions and disinformation against Salah. The following is my analysis of the judgment.
