Leeds student paper pulled for antisemitic interview Sameh Habeeb
Leeds University’s newspaper Leeds Student has been pulled from shelves by the Students’ Union after it published an antisemitic comment by Palestinian Telegraph owner Sameh Habeeb.The interviewer asked Mr Habeeb: “Do you believe mainstream media organizations have a hidden agenda?”He replied: “They are certainly pro-Israeli. I think you have to ask yourself who controls the media.”
Mr Habeeb’s website has recently posted a video of the former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke talking about Israel’s “terrorism” against America, and the allegations of organ theft against IDF troops in Haiti.
Its patrons are journalist Lauren Booth and Respect leader George Galloway. Liberal Democrat peer Jenny Tonge resigned as a patron after the website published David Duke’s video.
