What do you call it when a group of Muslims starts screaming “Allahu Ackbar”, waving pro-Islamist banners, and throwing projectiles at demonstrators and riot police in response to a non-violent protest on the eight anniversary of 9-11? Well, right wing fascism by anti-Muslim groups of course!
LONDON – Violent clashes between anti-Islam demonstrators and Muslim counter-protesters in English cities are worrying the government, with one British minister comparing the disturbances to 1930s-era fascist incitement.
The violence that has hit Luton, Birmingham and London in the last few months has involved a loose collection of far-right groups — such as the previously unknown English Defense League — on one side and anti-fascist organizations and Muslim youth on the other.
In an interview published Saturday, Communities Minister John Denham accused the anti-Islam protesters of deliberately stirring up trouble.
Deliberately stirring up trouble, eh? So what exactly does Communities Minister John Denham call the Islamic protest at a parade of returning British soldiers from Iraq where groups of Muslims were carrying signs that said “baby killers” and “butchers”? Or are Muslim protests freedom of speech and non-Muslim protests hate speech?
Anjem Chourdary added insult to the injury caused by Islamic extremists’ hate-filled protest against soldiers returning home from the war-torn region by saying they were ‘not heroes but closer to coweards who cannot fight, as their uncanny knack for death by friendly fire illustrates’.
Choudary’s extraordinary comments were delivered hours after Muslim protesters waved offensive placards as members of 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment marched through Luton.
The preacher, the right-hand man to cleric of hate Omar Bakri, went on to attack the ‘vile’ parade. He said the soldiers were ‘terrorists’, comparing them to Nazi troops who ‘cannot be excused for simply carrying out their duty’.
I guess it’s only inflammatory hate speech if you’re not Muslim. Well, at least the Islamists kept it all peaceful and didn’t get violent like their vile, right-wing, fascist, baby-eating, militant Sharia-law violators…
Only a handful of demonstrators showed up — and [the organization “Stop Islamification of Europe”] were vastly outnumbered by Muslims coming to defend the mosque.
Police hustled the protesters away from the angry crowd. But television footage showed Muslim youths racing through the streets shouting “Allahu Akbar!”, waving Islamic banners and throwing projectiles at riot police. Scotland Yard reported 10 arrests.
“They gave the fascists and far-right what they wanted, and I think that’s a shame,” lawmaker Tony McNulty told Sky News television.
Uh-huh. So one group protests and another group attacks them… exactly who were you saying were fascists, Mr. McNulty? And why does anyone need to “defend” a building from people protesting in front of it? Hasta la vista Free Speech, hello beards and burqas. Oh, and a big shout out to AP for once again proving that the art of unbiased journalism is in the latter stages of its death throes.
