Call for 2nd London School to Cancel Holocaust Denial


The Jewish-Muslim interfaith group Stand for Peace called on all University of London students, this week, to lobby the school's Senate House
to reject an appearance by suspected Hamas envoy Azzam Tamimi in honor of the late Egyptian Holocaust denier Abdelwahab Elmessiri.

The call came after King's College London canceled a May 19 lecture by Tamimi in memory of Elmessiri after pressure was placed by students belonging to the college's Israel Society (KCLSU Israel Society).
