British Tory leader argues for ban on "preachers of hate"


London, Jan. 30, 2008 ( - British Conservative party leader David Cameron has argued that "preachers of hate" should barred from entry into Great Britain, the BBC reports.

Cameron's comment was prompted by the case of an Islamic preacher, Yusuf al Qaradawi, who hopes to travel to London from medical treatment. Cameron said that the vistor would be "dangerous and divisive."

Alluding to a previous government decision to allow a visit by Ibrahim Moussawi, a Hezbollah spokesman, the Conservative leader said that he hoped the government "will not repeat the mistake of last December and make clear that Moussawi is not welcome in the UK."

Saying that the country's security is being undermined by an excessive attention to multiculturalism, Cameron suggested a blanket policy prohibiting representatives of Hezbollah from entering the country.
