Tage vor Abhaltung der so genannten Al-Quds Märsche fordert der Bürgermeister von London ein Verbot der Hizbollah:
Sadiq Khan has written to Sajid Javid, the new Home Secretary, asking him to ban Hezbollah in order to prevent displays of the group’s flag on London’s streets. (...)
It comes days ahead of the annual Al Quds Day march in London, at which the flag has been flown in recent years.
Under current laws, only the military wing of the organisation is proscribed. Because the flag represents the group as a whole, police are unable to take action against those flying it.
Mr Khan told Jewish News: “What is astonishing is there are people using a loophole in the law to fly a flag of an organisation that’s been proscribed – banned.
“I know from experience and the letters people write to me and speaking to Londoners that they feel the ripples of hatred. It cannot be right than it 2018 there are Londoners who, by virtue of being Jewish, feel these ripples of hate.”
“What’s happening is people who may feel scared by the flag and the association with what Hezbollah have done will see this flag fly in the heart of our city and think ‘how can that be allowed?’.”
