The Blood Libel and UK Parliament

Here is an announcement of a meeting in Parliament later this month. It is being organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Sara Apps, the wife of former Labour MP Martin "Tentacles" Linton. Note that three Labour MPs are scheduled to speak: Richard Burden, Jeremy Corbyn, and Yasmin Qureshi. Labour peer Alf Dubbs is another speaker. They will be joined by Ismail Patel and Ben White, among others.
But the star of the show is likely to be Raed Salah.
 "Salah is the head of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. He is a thug, a racist, and a Hamas supporter. One of his special skills is starting riots. You can read more about his background here and here.
This dreadful blood libel sums him up well:
During the speech at the February 16, 2007 protest in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi Joz, Salah accused Jews of using children’s blood to bake bread.
“We have never allowed ourselves to knead [the dough for] the bread that breaks the fast in the holy month of Ramadan with children’s blood,” he said. “Whoever wants a more thorough explanation, let him ask what used to happen to some children in Europe, whose blood was mixed in with the dough of the [Jewish] holy bread.”
“Great God, is this a religion?” he asked. “Is this what God would want? God will deal with you yet for what you are doing.”"
