It's hard to believe that yesterday's disgusting seditious display of Islamic hate towards returning British soldiers could get any uglier, but it has. Check out the march and the video here.
Lovely, happy people cheering their returning soldiers come under intense verbal harassment. Vile. So imagine how sick a society is to punish those who were put upon and harassed.
Police have charged a man with racially aggravated harrassment following clashes during the homecoming parade for British soldiers in Luton yesterday (March 10).
A second man, aged in his 40s, was given a fine after being arrested during the event. Both men were released from police custody on Tuesday night.
No muslims were arrested or charged with any offence
Melanie Phillips's excellent oped piece rips the Brits to shreds.
The repellent spectacle of Muslims demonstrating in Luton against the British soldiers returning from Iraq does more than turn our stomach.
It tells us in graphic form that this country has not only utterly failed to combat a threat to itself from within but - astoundingly - turns not against those who threaten it but against those who seek to defend it.
When the returning troops of the 2nd Battalion, the Royal Anglian Regiment paraded through Luton they had to run the gauntlet of Muslim protesters waving placards saying: ‘Anglian soldiers: Butchers of Basra,’ and ‘Anglian soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists.’
Not surprisingly, this enraged the rest of the crowd of decent, patriotic people who had turned out to welcome the troops home. Yet the only arrests made were among those who objected to the Muslim provocation, including a man who shouted something at them.
Talk about getting things back to front! The police turn a blind eye to gross and offensive provocation which clearly poses a threat to public order, while arresting instead those who are thus provoked!
Among the protesters was a group of burka-clad women with their faces wholly concealed except for slits for the eyes. Given the menacing nature of the protest, the fact that their identities were thus concealed was highly relevant.
Yet if anyone objects to any of this, they are called ‘Islamophobic’. Just think what the reaction would be if, say, a group of Ku Klux Klansmen in full regalia took part in a demonstration by neo-Nazis in a heavily ethnic minority area. Does anyone imagine that such a direct threat to public order would be permitted?
But when it comes to Islamist extremists, it is those who protest at such gross provocation - and, indeed, treachery against their own country - who are arrested as a threat to public order while the extremists are left free to preach their hatred.
Moreover, this demonstration appears to have been organised by an extremist group directly linked to Omar Bakri Mohammed, who now preaches to his followers from Lebanon via videos posted on websites after he was barred from Britain.
National pride: Soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment, marched through Watford today, supported by hundreds of cheering onlookers
UPDATE: The hero of the day: “At one point a man climbed onto a roof and threw a packet of bacon at the Muslim group.” (hat tip Joe)
