No respect for the English court but Obama says, respect it!
Note: the headline studiously avoids the word Muslim even though it is the central point of the report and is the subject of the article. Davod in the UK wrote:
In a prominent Radio Talk Show discussing the case this morning (Nick Ferrari, LBC Radio) several muslims actually called in to say the accuseds' claim was b.s., and that they should have stood out of respect for the court.
On the other hand no-one tied this in to the wider phenomenon of creeping sharia.
Why weren't they busted right then and there and given the maximum for contempt of court? No, instead the damn dhimmi court gave these jihadis an extra 20 minutes on top of their lunch break to go to pray at a mosque a few minutes' walk away.
Seven Muslim protesters accused of screaming insults at soldiers during an Iraq homecoming parade refused to stand for a judge yesterday.
The men are alleged to have shouted 'murderers', 'rapists', 'terrorists' and 'baby killers' while waving placards at the 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment marching through Luton.
At the town's magistrates' court, they denied using threatening, abusive, insulting words and behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm and distress to others.
After refusing to stand they were threatened with being found in contempt of court by a clearly angry District Judge Carolyn Mellanby.
They insisted it was a 'grave and cardinal sin' to show anyone other than Allah respect by standing.
Eventually, a compromise was reached where they would enter the court after her during the trial, which is expected to last six days. The maximum penalty each of the men can receive is a £1,000 fine.
The defendants were given an extra 20 minutes on top of their lunch break to go to pray at a mosque a few minutes' walk away.
A separate 'quiet' room has been set aside for their regular prayer intervals for the rest of the week. The seven accused men are Munin Abdul, 28, Jalal Ahmed, 21, Jabair Ahmed, 19, Yousaf Bashir, 29, Shajjadar Choudhury, 31, Ziaur Rahman, 32, and white Muslim Ibrahim Anderson, 32, all from Luton.
