Skip to comments.Kansas Jewish Man Refused Entry Into Britain

Chip Cantor told his story .... On June 4, he told KMBC he was traveling to Britain to visit and gain summer work experience, and to participate in a fundraiser for a child who has cancer. He left Kansas City on Wednesday, May 29, landed in Britain after 10 p.m. London time and waited in line to go through customs.
Chips father, Chuck Cantor, said .... the customs agent was very pleasant .... until she saw the Israel stamps in his passport. Then she simply walked away with his passport without speaking a word to him. Chip told his father he estimates she was gone 45 minutes to an hour. He never saw her again.
According to the Chronicle, Chip wasnt allowed to be in sight of his luggage and eventually was put into what he described to his father as a detention cell.
At some point a woman who was wearing a burka came to the cell to photograph him, Chuck said. At that point he was fingerprinted as well.
As she was doing this, she said to him, Were putting your name and fingerprints and photos into a database. From now on it is going to be very difficult for you to ever travel in the United Kingdom or anywhere in the E.U. It will be up to each individual country to decide if they want to admit you.
Chuck said Chip kept telling the customs agents he had not committed any crimes or done anything wrong. Eventually another agent came to tell Chip he was being deported.
Yeomans, the custom agent, also told Shilling any additional attempts to aid Cantor would be useless and the little Jew will be on his way back to his rich daddy, in a matter of hours.

And at the same time, they spend years and millions of dollars being unable to deport a Muslim terrorist, and supporting him and his family in style. The Muslim terrorist has lately volunteered to leave because Jordan passed new human rights legislation, but it’s up to him as to if he really will, or change his mind. One man, an avowed terrorist at that, is holding the British people hostage and making them pay, and their government is allowing it.
Can this possibly be true?
If this is true, I will never step foot in the U.K. again, not that they’d miss me.
I’ve been told to use a duplicate passport if traveling to Israel to avoid this kind of thing. Apparently this happens all the time in several countries.
I’m suspecting that this isn’t the ‘whole story’.
One fact that I did note - it appeared that he was coming into the EU to work. Was he on a work visa, or was he planning to work while on a tourist permit? That might be reason enough for exclusion.
I’d also be interested in what kind of ‘fundraiser’ he was going to participate in.
Yes, if you go to Israel and get stamped on entry it can be difficult. In some instances it is so bad that they actually will give you two passports.
Now I wonder how long it will be until you cant get back into the States with OMugabe in charge of seemingly everything.
Looks like I am on the right track:
“Another was that when Kevin Shilling, the owner of the media company at which Cantor was going to work this summer, called to try and intervene while Cantor was being detained, the customs agent told him that Chip should have lied to the customs agent,”
Looks like he gave the wrong answer to the question ‘What is the purpose of your visit’, and is now playing the race card in the best Al Sharpton tradition.
something seems missing in this story. somethings seem to be embellishment in this story. smells funny.
Oh it’s true, the kid was a year behind my kid in high school and the report is true. You can find it if you google “chip cantor”.
No Par, I think you should read some more of the articles. He had a job lined up with Mr. Shilling, what on earth he could have lied about to help himself is unknown, since he tole the absolute truth. He is not “playing the race card”, he was apparantly excluded, at the age of 22, for having visited Israel and nothing else. For that matter, my mother has visited Israel and she is Catholic. Many Christians and almost all Jewish kids as they grow up around here, anyway, visit Israel.
The British seem to have an illegal enforcement meme going on
Replace the words "U.K. Border Agency" with "Transportation Safety Administration" or "Department of Homeland Security". It appears that the only difference is that the U.S. has two gestapo organizations and the U.K. only one. This feels a lot like 1937 all over again.
Yes it’s true. I know the family in Kansas City. The kid is upstanding. The lady in the Burka didn’t like the Jew boy with the Israel stamps on his passport.
Velkommen Sie zu Grosse Britain der Neue Heimat des Islamvolk!! Keine Juden!!
WHO the hell won WWII? What kind of antisemitic Muslim-butt-kissing bastards run that Country?
They are like Obamabastards on steroids!
>>>Can this possibly be true?<<<
It is pretty common in Europe for a very long time. My sister said she witnessed a couple of ethnic looking French custom officials who randomly picked and pointedly intimidated a well-dressed Jewish woman and a Russian soldier on departure from Paris to Moscow years ago. Forced them to unpack their bags numerous times, confiscated harmless items, went away and back with their passports without any explanation and reason. A man went ballistic and these schmucks called a police telling he is a racist. It took the entire crowd of passengers to stand for their people to stop this.
I knew a Jewish American who worked for a major defense contractor and he traveled to Saudi Arabia, Israel, UAE, Kuwait, Germany all the time. At that time the Israelis would actually provide him with a stamped insert for his passport that could be removed for travel to countries that restricted visitors who had traveled to Israel.
BTW, the Saudis were perfectly aware of his ethnicity and travels to Israel and never made an issue out of it. It just part and parcel of the hypocrisy of life in the Middle East. One place in the world he did encounter overt antisemitism was Germany, where a bartender told him Hitler didn’t finish the job. He told the bartender he was one of the ones Hitler missed. (I used to speak fair German and I would hear the same shit from Germans occasionally.)
The Judeo-Christians are under attack from the Other
I have heard the same from Americans. It is probably the most common bigotry I’ve ever encountered (and I am not Jewish, though people sometimes think I am).
“Can this possibly be true?”
That’s my question. We need some more info here.
More info, and other sides to the story, in the two previous threads on this. Not all that it seems. See:
