UK’S PM MAY AGAIN EQUATES ROBERT SPENCER WITH JIHAD TERRORISTS

Summary: 

There she goes again. British Prime Minister Theresa . Last Monday night,  at the United Jewish Israel Appeal dinner, and included in it the same libel of me that she put in the first one. Could Theresa May herself really believe this nonsense? Does she really believe that standing against jihad terror is essentially equivalent to plotting jihad mass murder?

...

So as far as May is concerned, Pamela Geller and I are the “Islamophobic” equivalents of Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada. May expects her audience to be familiar with Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada, and for good reason, since both are notorious in Britain, although n neither lives there now. Abu Hamza  in a super-max U.S. for, among other things, conspiring to set up a training camp for jihad terrorists in Bly, Oregon. Abu Qatada  of plotting the jihad massacre of Americans and Israelis in Jordan, to which he has returned.

Now have I plotted to fly a jetliner into Big Ben, or blow myself up in a crowd of Britons? No, I’ve never plotted, called for, or approved of any kind of terrorist or vigilante violence against anyone. And thus May’s speaking of me as the flip side of Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada is beyond outrageous: it’s so ridiculous that it should lead any competent member of the British Parliament to question not only her fitness to remain in office, but her sanity.
