Labour hypocrisy - London Mayor Sadiq Khan Hosting Party Tonight With 11 Nations Who Ban Israelis

'Just hours after demanding the government rescinds its invite to President Trump over his travel ban, Sadiq Khan will tonight host a City Hall reception with 11 dignitaries whose countries bar Israeli citizens from entering.

Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen will all be represented at the gathering of ambassadors this evening. All 11 of these countries block travel to Israeli passport holders.

Khan will use tonight's party to criticise Trump's ban as "cruel, prejudiced and counterproductive." While dining with 11 diplomats whose countries have done the same for years. '

The finest Labour hypocrisy but as it's anti Israel and by a senior London politician it won't be reported by the institutionally anti Israel and pro Labour Party BBC.
