mpacuk.org reports, ‘A Muslim student has been expelled from a public speaking competition after a video of her moving entry about the plight of the Palestinians went viral.  Leanne Mohamad, a 15-year-old Muslim student at Wanstead High School in London, won a regional final of the Jack Petchey ‘Speak Out’ Challenge with her speech entitled ‘Birds not Bombs’, in which she describes how Palestinians suffer at the hands of the Zionist regime, Israel. She also spoke of how her baby cousin in Gaza died due to basic medical aid – a result of Israel’s blockade. Organisers Speakers Trust voted “unanimously” to ban her from going through to the final of the competition.’ click here.
