The Jewish community has reacted with horror at news that the head of Britain’s biggest Muslim charity labelled Jews the “grandchildren of monkeys and pigs”.

Heshmat Khalifa resigned from Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) following the discovery facebook posts with antisemitic comments, revealed by The Times.

A former trustee and director of the charity, which has almost an £600m income including from the UN and British taxes, Khalifa called Palestinian terror group Hamas “the purest resistance movement in modern history”, and that labelling its armed wing a terror group was “shameful disgrace to all Muslims”. The former charity boss also said Egypt’s president was a “Zionist pimp”.

Islamic Relief Worldwide issued a statement confirming his resignation, saying: ‘We are sorry to say that posts on Mr Khalifa’s personal social media account in 2014 and 2015, which IRW was first made aware of on July 16 2020, contravene the values and principles of Islamic Relief Worldwide. Islamic Relief Worldwide sincerely regrets any offence caused.”
