Sheikh Akrama Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, says he will protest against the Saudi government for hiring the company (G4S) for Hajj security.This I had to check out, and sure enough, it is confirmed by The National (UAE) from September 2014:
He said that the company has been active in occupied Palestinian territories for years.
According to reports, Sheikh Sabri spoke to Muslims at a gathering in Germany, saying, "(G4S) is a security company that equips and maintains the Zionist detention centers and jails where Palestinian political prisoners, including children, are held and tortured.
"G4S is complicit in Israel's occupation. Those who help the occupation must be held accountable and are complicit in the crime, as those who help aggressors also are aggressors. How (can) Saudi Arabia call itself a pro-Islamic and Arab nation while it hires G4S, (an) accomplice to Israeli torture for Hajj security?"
The company was heavily targeted by the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement in recent years due to its tactics against Palestinians incarcerated in Israel.
Saudi Arabia will rely on surveillance technology, a 60,000-strong security force, and private contractors to protect this year’s Haj after taking a hardline stance against Islamist extremism.
The British contractor G4S, which has offices in Jeddah, will provide additional assistance, along with a security force of around 60,000 officers
G4S has been one of the biggest targets of the BDS movement since 2012. The first reports of Mecca hiring G4S for Hajj came out in 2013.
Which means that this is about as big a BDS fail as can be imagined.
