Al-Fateh Report Impacts British Prime Minister
IMPACT-SE’s efforts to affect positive change through its research and fight hatred, intolerance, and incitement against the West and the Jews have had a profound effect. IMPACT-SE presented MP Louise Ellman (Labour) with its report on the Hamas Web Magazine for Children (Al-Fateh) and illustrated the danger it poses for children in the Middle East and Britain.
