UK Charity Commission probing JNF UK head for comments on Muslim-Jewish relations

The UK’s Charity Commission is investigating comments by the head of Jewish National Fund UK after comments he made about Jews’ future in the country, Jewish News reports.

Samuel Hayek told Jewish News last month that Muslim immigration to the country is leading to a situtation where “maybe in 10 years, maybe less, who knows, Jews will not be able to live in the UK. I don’t think anybody can stop it.”

He said that in “Islam there is not a term for ‘peace’” and that Muslims who come to the UK “create their own ghettos, their own education, their own process of thinking.”

The Charity Commission says it has “opened a regulatory case into the Charity” over complaints it received.

“The Commission has contacted the Charity’s trustees requesting information; once received the Commission will consider whether any regulatory action is required. We cannot comment further whilst our case is ongoing.”
