These Muslims are not "radical"; they are authentic. They are pure and devout. The real "radicals" are the reformers and the moderates; they do not have a theological leg to stand on. I blogged on this group targeting the London Olympics yesterday here: "Evil Olympics"
Police respond with a massive show of force to a group of Muslim protestors outside the Olympic Park ahead of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Here the group whines that their "peaceful" protest in the cause of the religion of "peace" was disallowed:
"British Government Ban Peaceful Demonstration by Muslims" Evil Olympics
At 8pm on 27th July 2012, Muslims from across the United Kingdom planned to converge peacefully at the Olympic park, to voice their disapproval of the British government and the Olympic games. Issues to be addressed included the anti-Muslim British foreign policy, the prohibition of participating in the Olympic tournament, the need for unity among Muslims worldwide, and the global obligation of implementing the Khilafah (Islamic State).
Unfortunately, it seems as though this sincere campaign was too much for the tyrannical British government, and although numerous other protests were given the go ahead during the opening ceremony of the Olympic games, the only one that did get banned was to no surprise the Muslim one.
We would like to reiterate that Muslims will view this as another victory for Islam, seeing as once again the so called coveted values of freedom and democracy have been compromised and thrown in the bin, at the mere suggestion of a peaceful Islamic [oxymron - Atlas] demonstration.
We would also like to emphasise that the Evil Olympics campaign, is by no means over, and will continue throughout the tournament, with special surprises along the way that will inshaa’allah (God willing) create worldwide impact, and we therefore urge everyone to keep updated with our website www.evilolympics.com, for the latest press releases.
We request that this message be passed to anyone that planned to attend the demonstration and apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you have any enquiries about future projects, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Radical Muslims abandon protest outside Olympic Park Reuters. July 28, 2012
(Reuters) - A group of British Islamists called off a protest planned for outside the London Olympic Park on Friday and organizers said police had told them not to go ahead.
The group, led by some of Britain's most prominent Islamist [sic] figures, had intended to gather outside the gates to the park ahead of the opening ceremony to denounce what they called the evil of the Games.
Police said that as it was a standing protest, not a march, the group was not required to obtain permission, but organizer Mizanur Rahman said police had made it clear to him that the protest should not go ahead.
"We would have been immediately arrested otherwise," said Rahman, who served a four-year jail term for encouraging followers to kill British and American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq during a demonstration in London in 2006.
"There's no way for Muslims to voice any of their concerns," said Rahman, whose Website, evilolympics.com, has the tagline "While the world plays, Muslims are being killed around the globe".
He vowed there would be more efforts to protest during the course of the Games.
East London, where the Olympic Park is located, is home to a large Muslim community housed in some of the capital's poorest neighborhoods. It is also home to a number of British Muslims convicted of involvement in plots since the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
Rahman said the decision of judo chiefs not to allow a Saudi athlete to compete wearing an Islamic headscarf showed why Muslims should boycott the Olympics, which this year coincides with the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"I would hope that this would be a sign they should not be in the Games," said Rahman.
Saudi Arabia have threatened to withdraw from the London 2012 Olympic Games unless female judo athlete Wujdan Shahrkhani is allowed to wear her headscarf in competition.Controversy: Saudi Arablia has threatened to withdraw from London 2012 over the refusal of the organisers to allow judo team member Wujdan-Shahrkhani to wear a hijab in competition Photo: Getty Images
