Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Will He or Won't He Be Going to Britain?

Palestinian Authority Mufti Ekrima Sa'id Sabri has form in the antisemitic stakes.
'In a 1999 interview regarding the political situation on the Temple Mount, Sabri stated, "If the Jews want peace, they will stay away from Al Aksa. This is a decree from God. The Haram al-Sharif belongs to the Muslim. But we know the Jew is planning on destroying the Haram. The Jew will get the Christian to do his work for him. This is the way of the Jews. This is the way Satan manifests himself. The majority of the Jews want to destroy the mosque. They are preparing this as we speak."
In a 2000 interview with the Italian newspaper la Repubblica, Sabri responded to a question about the Holocaust by stating, "Six million Jews dead? No way, they were much fewer. Let’s stop with this fairytale exploited by Israel to capture international solidarity. It is not my fault if Hitler hated Jews, indeed they were hated a little everywhere. Instead, it is necessary to denounce the unjust occupation endured by my people. Tomorrow I will ask John Paul II... to support our cause."
On February 20, 2005, Sabri appeared on Saudi Arabian Al Majd TV to comment on the assassination of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese Prime Minister. Sabri stated, "Anyone who studies The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and specifically the Talmud will discover that one of the goals of these Protocols is to cause confusion in the world and to undermine security throughout the world."' [Emphasis added, here and below]
Here he is on Voice of Palestine Radio (Fatah) a couple of weeks before 9/11 asking Allah to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to destroy Israel, America and Britain.
Inveighs he:
"Allah, destroy the U.S., its helpers and its agents. Allah, destroy Britain, its helpers and its agents. Allah, prepare those who will unite the Muslims and march in the steps of Saladin. Allah, we ask you for forgiveness before death, and mercy and forgiveness after death. Allah, grant victory to Islam and the Muslims…"

It's reported he'll be in the UK from the 11th to the 15th of this month as part of a delegation organised by Pro-Palestinian group EuroPal

To quote blogger Vlad Tepes:
"(Meanwhile, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and of all people, Michael Savage, have been banned from entering the UK for reporting that many Muslims like this one, say exactly what they say)"
Yet it seems he has yet to apply for a visa.  And a petition is afoot to ensure that he is not granted one.
'... Joan Ryan MP, Labour Friends of Israel chair, said she was horrified Sabri was attempting to visit parliament “given his reported views on the holocaust, terrorism and the Jewish people."
She added: “If these reports are true, he should not be allowed into the UK, let alone into Parliament.'  (Report here)
 In the meantime. elsewhere in Europe:

To quote the uploader:
'A group of protesters demonstrated against the recent desecration of the International Brigades memorial at the Fuencarral cemetery in Madrid on Saturday, condemning the Anti-Semitic graffiti Nazi symbols found on the monuments. SOT, Paco Arnaure, Political activist (Spanish): "We are here at the Fuencarral Cemetery because there has been an attack by fascist groups on the memorials for the international volunteers who fought for the Spanish Republic, the International Brigades and also the Soviet volunteers, who have their own monument here as well." SOT, Javier Ruiz, Political activist (Spanish): "These people came here to defend what we today know as democratic values, and they fought in a war –and even died in it – to defend these values." SOT, Roman, Political activist (Spanish): "Fascists and nationalists are getting back on their feet in Europe, and I think this is very dangerous for Europe. I can personally say this is happening in Ukraine, where nationalist battalions, people with fascist ideologies, are killing their own people. And Europe is supporting that. So sometimes I ask myself why Europe is nurturing this fascism." '
