Without Suella, Who Will Speak Up for British Values?

November 15, 2023

The former Home Secretary was right to warn of the ‘misguided dogma of multiculturalism’. The Government ought to follow that lead


The Suella saga reveals the real problem this country faces.

The British public is neither blind nor stupid. On consecutive weekends, our capital city has almost felt like a no-go zone, particularly if you’re Jewish. These do not feel like average protests – not least given some marchers appeared to be celebrating the greatest massacre of Jewish people since the Holocaust.

We have heard chants of “Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahood” – “Oh Jews, the army of Mohammed will return!” – referring to a seventh-century massacre of Jewish people. Or “Oh beloved Abu Obaida, hit and bomb Tel Aviv” – referring to the spokesman of Hamas’ military wing. One man, asked why he was tearing down posters of kidnapped Israeli children, was filmed saying that he prays for Hamas and loves the mujahadeen (holy warriors). “We will honour our martyrs” has been chanted outside King’s College, and “From the River to the Sea” in Whitehall.
