Radical preacher Raed Salah could be deported within days after an immigration court ruled he had no right to be in Britain.

In what will be seen as a personal victory for Home Secretary Theresa May, an immigration tribunal found Salah was guilty of ‘fostering hatred’.

His presence in the country could lead to ‘inter-community violence’, the tribunal found.

Salah, a self-styled Palestinian ‘sheikh’, was banned from entering Britain in June this year.

But just days later, he waltzed through immigration controls at Heathrow.

After three days in which he was free to speak to supporters across the country, he was finally arrested and put in immigration detention.

But he was released on bail while wearing an electronic tag.

He was accused in Parliament of ‘virulent anti-Semitism’ and in the past has claimed the Israeli government was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Mrs May said his presence here was not ‘conducive to the public good’ because of his extremist statements.

In its ruling, the tribunal made clear removing him was in the public interest and said he had engaged in ‘unacceptable behaviour’.

They said: ‘We are satisfied that the appellant’s words and actions tend to be inflammatory, divisive, insulting, and likely to foment tension and radicalism.’

Salah has several days to appeal to the High Court and then another 72 hours before he can be deported, so the earliest he could be on a plane is next Friday.

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘We will seek to deport him at the earliest opportunity.’ Source: Daily Mail.
