Growing pro-Palestine sentiments in England, Muslim councilor raised slogans of ‘Allah-hu-Akbar’ after election victory

Student protests have reached British university campuses. After being elected, a councilor raised the slogan of Allahu Akbar. More than 40 pro-Palestinian campaigners have won seats as councilors in England, according to The Daily Mail. According to the British daily, he focused on the Gaza conflict during his campaigns and received overwhelming support from voters, turning things around in town halls across the country. Some of these new councilors wore badges bearing the colors of the Palestinian flag, and others said that their victory was for the people of Gaza.

One winner, Moteen Ali, even dedicated his victory to the people of Gaza. According to The Telegraph, Ali’s party, the Green Party, is investigating the councillor. Motheen Ali, who won the Gipton and Harehills ward in Leeds, said Palestine had the right to “fight back” on the day of the 7 October terrorist attacks. According to The Telegraph, he had previously described a Jewish pastor forced into hiding due to threats from protesters as an animal.

Newly elected councilors defeated Labor candidates in at least 12 town halls. This led opposition leader Keir Starmer to promise to win back the trust of voters who felt he did not support Palestine enough. The Muslim Vote group also gave Starmer a list of 18 demands, including ending Britain’s military ties with Israel and recognizing the state of Palestine, the Daily Mail reports.

Top Tories expressed their concern that the election would lead to town halls being filled with discussions about foreign affairs rather than focusing on local services. This is the result of the Left’s attempt to fragment the society and create a coalition of minorities instead of uniting it. It is very divisive for the country at large, the Daily Mail quoted former cabinet minister Jacob Rees-Mogg as saying.
