Farage: Those Decrying The Trump Ban Are Guilty Of "Rank Hypocrisy"

Nigel Farage gets heated as he reels off a list of countries who deny Jewish-Israeli passport holders entry.
As Donald Trump draws sharp criticism over the signing of an exective order preventing citizens from seven countries entering the USA for 90s days, the former UKIP leader reminds us of the many other countries who enact similar travel bans.
Nationals from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Lybia and Yemen are currently prevented from entering the USA under a new American law.
However, Farage angrily points out that there are many countries that enforce travel bans based on religious prejudice who are not targeted or maligned by the media or "looney lefties."
"But now about this. How about the fact that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the U.A.E. have not taken one single Syrian refugee"
"Did you know the following countries will not allow any Jewish-Israeli passport holders into their country: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and the Yemen. So can we please ban everybody from those countries, any leader from those countries must never come to never come here."
"I'm waiting for Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron and Caroline Lucas to stand up and make big speeches.
"I will be looking forward to the protests against this vile anti-Jewish prejudice and am I going to see it? Am I going to hear it? No, because it's not Donald Trump and he's the devil.
"It is all rank hypocrisy."
