EDL demo over Muslim centre

Members of the English Defence League (EDL) will hold what they say will be the “first of many” regional demonstrations in the village.

It comes after, the EDL says, residents contacted the organisation after Durham County Council passed plans to turn the former Melrose Arms pub into a Muslim educational centre in May.

The EDL says it will be supported by other Defence Leagues and North East Infidels during the demonstration, on December 1.

EDL regional organiser Alan Spence told the Star: “We can confirm that this demo will be the first of many in Shotton Colliery until the council listen to the local residents and refuse planning permission for this Muslim education centre that the local community does not want, or need.

“We have contacted Durham Constabulary and are working with them to ensure that this protest remains peaceful with minimal disruption to the local community.”

A spokeswoman for Durham Police said: “We are aware that this event is being held and are drawing up plans to ensure it goes ahead peacefully and lawfully for the safety of all involved and for the wider community of Shotton.”

Breaking news! (…ish)
Extremists have infiltrated the British Army… and there’s a serious danger that they might do or say something that causes someone somewhere to be offended.
Try not to panic.
No, this isn’t an article about true extremism (the type that causes terrorism, murder, violence, rape and abuse), it’s about that other type… the sort of ‘extremism’ that causes half-rate journalists to give in to their barely disguised prejudices and stick the boot in to people who have managed to offend their sensibilities.
Well they’ve got to find something to write about.
In this case we have an exemplary piece of journalism from the home of in-depth political analysis, the Daily Star (for international readers, this is the paper that organises its website content: ‘news, sport, babes’ – not that there’s anything wrong with that, but don’t expect to find much in the way of insightful analysis).
The big story of the hour is this picture, showing a serving British soldier in front of an EDL flag.
We should explain: the English Defence League is an organisation that very much aims to do what it says on the tin – we want to defend England.
That might sound like a pretty grand idea, but when the whole idea of being proud of your country is under attack, there’s plenty that a grassroots movement like ours can do to remind the government of what should be its primary concern: defending this country, its people, its institutions and its traditions from those who would attack the rights and freedoms that we all enjoy.
We believe that Islam presents a challenge to our tolerant values, as well as to our national security, but that it wouldn’t necessarily be this way if the government was willing to replace pandering to the Muslim community with making it abundantly clear that extremism will not be tolerated.
Islamic extremism is a global problem, so evidently there is need of reform from within. Unfortunately, the government’s stubborn refusal to allow any criticism of Islam, or tackle the self-imposed segregation of many of the country’s Muslim communities, makes it far easier for extremism to grow.
Soldiers fighting Islamic extremism in Iraq or Afghanistan should be confident that any insurgents they come across won’t turn out to have grown up in Birmingham, attended a UK university, or have received funding from UK charities.
If that confidence isn’t there, then of course they’ll support an organisation that continually calls for Islamic extremism in the UK to be taken more seriously.
In a warzone where the threat of Islamic extremism is very real, a soldier choosing to fly the flag of an organisation dedicated to combating the spread of Islamic extremism at home seems entirely appropriate.
But not according to Brian Whelan of the Daily Star. To him this is a “sickening display”.
Why? Well it’s not difficult to dive into the psyche of Mr Whelan.

EDL Exposed

EDL Exposed | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Exposed! The sinister puppet masters pulling Paul Weston’s and ‘Tommy Robinson’s’ strings.

“The chain of command is there for all to see. The worst corporate war-mongers on the planet fund Frank Gaffney, who pays the ultra-Zionist terrorist sympathisers who operate their EDL and BFP puppets. The people who dragged us into war in Iraq and Afghanistan are now pushing not just for war against Iran, but for racial violence on the streets of Britain.”

After several months of in-depth research and analysis, Nick Griffin used his main speech at the recent conference of the Alliance of European National Movements to expose the push to hijack and manipulate nationalism.

The text of Mr. Griffin’s in-depth report on the individuals behind the stunning true story of the attempted takeover of nationalism in Britain will be published here very shortly. In the meantime, please send the link to his speech to everyone you know who cares about the future of nationalism and keeping Britain out of other people’s wars.

Bomb in car boot on M1: Police investigating whether occupants were on way to attack English Defence League rally

Bomb in car boot on M1: Police investigating whether occupants were on way to attack English Defence League rally | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

One theory is the occupants were planning to bomb a march by the EDL taking place just hours later.

Counter-terror police were yesterday investigating whether two men found with a bomb in their car were on their way to attack an English Defence League rally.

They discovered the Afghanistan-style explosive device by sheer chance when they pulled over the vehicle on the M1.

Also hidden in the boot were two guns, ammunition and leaflets warning “infidels” not to follow the EDL, David Cameron and the Queen.

One theory is the two male occupants were planning to bomb a march by the notorious anti-Islamic group taking place just hours after they were stopped.

Officers only discovered the guns and bomb two days after impounding the car for having no insurance last Saturday.

By then police had already let the driver and passenger go.

Detectives traced the owner of the car and armed police carried out raids in Birmingham and West Yorkshire this week. Seven men were arrested.

It is the first time such an improvised explosive device – used by Taliban insurgents to kill British troops in Afghanistan – has been found in the UK.

Almost 500 members of the EDL marched in Dewsbury last Saturday, where one of the suspects lives.

They had widely publicised the event – bragging that they were coming to take over the “Islamic republic of Dewsbury”.

It is not known how big the suspect device was or the destruction it could have caused if detonated.

Saturday’s incident began when uniformed motorway cops pulled over the car as it travelled south on the M1 between junctions 33 and 34 in South Yorkshire.

The numberplate recognition system in their vehicle alerted them that the vehicle was uninsured.

It is believed one of the unsuspecting officers drove the vehicle to a local police pound where the driver and passenger were freed.

It was only on Monday, when a full inspection of the car was made, that the IED, weapons and leaflets were discovered.

This sparked the huge Midlands anti-terror hunt for the occupants and any of their accomplices.

West Midlands police arrested three men – believed to include the driver and passenger – aged 23, 26 and 27 in Sparkhill, Birmingham, on Tuesday.

A 23-year-old and two men aged 22 were held in raids in the Alum Rock, Smethwick and Moseley areas of the city the following evening.

A man of 43 was arrested in Dewsbury on Thursday.

Anti-terror officers spent yesterday searching a house in the town belonging to Mohammed Mohazim Akbar.

All the suspects who were arrested were last night being quizzed on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

It is believed two of the men arrested in Sparkhill are brothers of a terror suspect currently awaiting trial in the UK.

The 20-year-old is accused of collecting money for terrorism, travelling to Pakistan for terrorism training and travelling abroad to commit acts of terrorism.

A West Midlands police spokesman said: “The arrests followed a routine stop.

“Firearms, offensive weapons and other material were later found hidden inside, prompting police to take action to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and others suspected of being involved.

“The items from the vehicle are currently undergoing forensic analysis and searches are or have been carried out at the addresses of those in custody.”

UAF - Demo in Glasgow 16/06/12

UAF - Demo in Glasgow 16/06/12 | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

There will be a demo in Glasgow this Saturday by the Reds to stop Illegal immigrants getting deported from the UK !

The Reds would have an open planet, they would have it so you could go anywhere in the world at any given time, this is as we know in today's world is NOT possible.

How about we could do a transfer system, every time they don't want an illegal to go they go in their place?

The NHS amongst all our other industries cannot handle the saturation that we are already experiencing in this country, but the UAF would have you believe all you need to do is NOT wash and NOT work and study until your 54 years old and the tax payer will cover this!

Well we say NO, if you are here illegally then I'm sorry you face deportation, just like all civilised countries all over the world this is common practice.

I don't know what the Reds are worried about they will probably be back in the country within the week.....then the whole process starts again, more expense and hassle.

The demo will be held at Clydewalk Way, situated at the junction of the Broomielaw and Washington Street, please arrive early for a 1pm start.

Please contact David Orr on 07828231082

Muslim Farzan Ahmed - Calderdale council Nazi & EDL News

Muslim Farzan Ahmed - Calderdale council Nazi & EDL News | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

EDL News is on a server that belongs to a Muslim called Sohail Iqbal (also known as Sohail Choudhry) who is linked to several personalities including the nasty weasel Robin Tuddenham from Calderdale council.


The actual website EDL News belongs to a certain "Gary Moon" who also goes by the alias of Gary Fiennes Hastings, and Alan Moon. Gary Moon of Hill Road, Reading, in Berkshire is A true Jew hating and anti-Semitic scumbag who spends his time attacking and harassing people online on FB. His family owns a business called Blissett


Bookbinders - details below:
FJ Blissett and Co. Ltd

Trading as:
Blissett Bookbinders

Registrant type:
UK Limited Company, (Company number: 350921)


Registrant's address:
Roslin Road
W3 8DH
United Kingdom


The website for EDL News is registered by UK Cheapest Limited - one of the companies of Sohail Iqbal (Also called Sohail Choudhury)


Name & Registered Office:
Company No. 07501945

This office is a service office.


The Chair of the local BME (Black, Minority, Ethnic) Network in Calderdale - who also sits on the police race hate scrutiny panels and the Equality Forum in Calderdale (which Forum is administered by officers of the Council under Robin Tuddenham) - is a Muslim called Farzan Ahmed.

Mr Ahmed has an interesting profile which may be viewed at http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/farzan-ahmed/18/69b/973. You will see that he makes repeated issue of his having assisted the authorities in dealing with the "far right, extremist" EDL demo in Halifax.
Of course he is incapable of dealing with the EDL, but he still likes to make such comments to big himself up.

If you check his Facebook out - https://www.facebook.com/xcelgroup - you will see many activities and interests listed - not least amongst which are 'British Muslims Against Zionism' - 'Muslim Defence League' - 'Palestine Defence League' - 'Stop Killing Children of Palestine' and 'Free Palestine'. These are truly hate-mongering Facebook pages.

Now ...if you check 'Free Palestine' out on Facebook you will see not just the usual anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist crap expressed, but also blatantly anti-Jewish sentiment and if you click on the advertised web-site in the information section of 'Free Palestine' - http://www.palestine-info.co.uk/ this takes you to a hard-core rabidly anti-Jewish, openly Islamist and Hamas supporting web-site.

Mr Ahmed is a terrorist supporter and is a colleague of Sail Suleman's (Another terrorist supporter) on the Race/Faith Hate Scrutiny Panels and has other agencies networking links with him.

So there we have it:

Farzan Ahmed, the Racist, Jew hating Chair of the BME Network, sits on a policy Forum administered by Robin Tuddenham, has close links with Sail Suleman and Calderdale Muslim councillors and publicly expresses his like of anti-Zionist Facebook pages - at least one of which directly links to a hard-core Islamist and anti-Jewish Hamas supporting website.

He also runs quite a few web-sites himself including a religious web-site - http://www.dawah.org.uk/

As I see it, Calderdale Council and its agencies have become thoroughly infiltrated by anti-Zionist and Islamist elements and this is why anti-semitic films, child exploitation and fund-raising events of late have been allowed to be promoted and hosted using public monies.

Calderdale Council and other such local agencies are happy to facilitate anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish propaganda because it already engages with, respectabilises and allows itself to be advised by such people as openly flaunt - no doubt in mentoring to others - their interest in virulently Islamist and rabidly anti-Jewish websites.

These Muslim Nazis are linked to the EXPOSE group and Calderdale council and its employees have once again been exposed as the Jew hating vermin that they are.


And so that you know we are not making this up, here we have one of Farzan Ahmed's friends: Menhaj Afridi, a disgusting vermin and Jew hater who worships Anwar al Awlaki, the Al-Qaeda "spiritual leader".

Menhaj Afridi's profile name is 'Weapons of Mass Deception' - an interesting name for a man who, incidentally, also shares Mr Ahmed's interest in propagating religious 'dawah' websites. This proves that all "Dawah and anything to do with Religious Islam is in its core anti-Jew and anti-Zionist".

Mr Afridi is a man who clearly and publicly posts vile Jew-hatred on his Facebook profile - according to him Queen Elizabeth II is no more than a German Jewish bitch and he refers to supporters of Israel as "rats". See enclosed screen-shot attachments in this regard.
Now this is interesting - not only because of his vile anti-Jewish sentiments and not only because such vile comments are expressed in the context of a post denigrating the EDL for supporting Israel - but primarily because of the name of the poster himself - Menhaj Afridi.
A Menhaj Afridi has been lately exposed as a public "fan" of the notorious and now dead Yemeni-American al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki on the JIDF website - please see http--www.thejidf.org-2010-05-who-will-be-the-next-times-square-bomber and the enclosed screen shot attachments. Menhaj Afridi is about half way down the JIDL list. As you know Awlaki was viewed by US government officials to be a senior talent recruiter, motivator and operational planner for al-Qaeda.
If this is indeed the same guy - Menhaj Afridi, a self-confessed Jew-hater exposed on Jewish websites as having had recent links with a senior al-Qaeda terrorist - then he's also linked as a FB friend, and has been for some time, with the Chair of Calderdale BME, Farzan Ahmed.


Below is a link to further information on Farzan Ahmed, who is a director of several companies - all information is public and was obtained from the public domain.

Just how dumb is Unite Against Fascism ?

Just how dumb is Unite Against Fascism ? | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Just how dumb is Unite Against Fascism ? Having lobbied the government many times in recent months to ban marches by the English Defence League, it is now outraged that the Government has not only taken up this offer to squish the EDL but has pushed it further, by banning all public protests in five London boroughs for the next 30 days. That means both the Right-wing EDL and the lefties at UAF – and anyone else with a political gripe – are forbidden from marching in Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest any time in September. “This is a huge attack on everyone’s civil liberties”, bleats UAF, which is weird, considering that they’re the ones who invited the Government to undermine people’s civil liberties in the first place.
Theresa May’s blanket ban on all protests, following a request from the Metropolitan Police, is certainly outrageous, not to mention ironic, coming as it does just days after her boss David Cameron talked about his role in introducing political freedom to Libya. But UAF has no one but itself to blame for this extraordinary clampdown on the right to protest. For an apparently radical leftist campaign group, UAF is awfully fond of asking the Tory government to ban things – it has frequently demanded the outlawing of EDL marches, on the basis that they “spread fear” and might brainwash stupid working-class white people into turning racist. And when you cravenly invite the Government to play the role of in loco parentis in community life, to squish heated marches or protests on the basis that they might warp people’s minds and hearts, you really shouldn’t be surprised when it jumps at the opportunity. If you spend your every waking hour going cap-in-hand to the powers-that-be, demanding “No Platform!” for people you don’t like, you’re not in a very good position to complain when the authorities decide to deny you a platform too.
Now, UAF has issued what must rank as one of the silliest political statements of the year so far. “We the undersigned welcome the banning of the racist English Defence League’s march through Tower Hamlets,” it says. “But we are appalled to discover that the Metropolitan Police are applying for a blanket ban on ALL marches across five London boroughs… It is our human right to peacefully march in Tower Hamlets.” Wait – how come UAF has a “human right” to march, but the EDL does not? Are EDL members not human? Moreover, it really is spectacularly daft to talk about the importance of the right to march in the same breath as you welcome a government decision to ban a march. What UAF is effectively saying is: “We should have the freedom to march, but they shouldn’t.”
Which rather confirms that the anti-fascist Left doesn’t know the meaning of the word freedom. Freedom of speech only exists if everyone has it. The freedom to protest must mean that everyone, from worthy Left-wingers to cranky EDL types, should be at liberty to gather where and when they please and to demand whatever they want. What UAF is fighting for is not freedom but privilege. If a thing is denied to some people but granted to others, then it’s a privilege rather than a right – and UAF wants the “privilege to protest” in certain London boroughs where it expects other, less privileged, possibly non-human political activists to be silenced and curfewed on its behalf by the government. That is, UAF only really believes in Government-approved, Tory-approved, forms of public agitation. Maybe now, having fallen victim to its own boneheaded illiberalism and censorious stupidity, UAF will recognise that privileges can quite easily be taken away.

Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll Join British Freedom!

Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll Join British Freedom! | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it



We are pleased to announce that Stephen Lennon (also known as Tommy Robinson) and Kevin Carroll of the English Defence League have joined the Executive Council of British Freedom.

Mr Lennon and Mr Carroll will share the role of Party Vice Chairman alongside Party Chairman Paul Weston.

This historic development marks the growing cooperation between British Freedom and the English Defence League, thus offering a political voice to the working men and women of this country who have effectively been betrayed by all the main parties – particularly the Labour Party.

The move establishes British Freedom as a new force in British politics – the only party with the strength and determination to call for Britain’s withdrawal from the unelected and totalitarian European Union, to confront militant Islam, halt mass immigration and defend democracy’s most vital ingredient – Free Speech.

British Freedom will also end the deliberately divisive policy of multiculturalism and reverse decades of destructive Political Correctness which exists only to promote division and Socialism – despite the appalling record of Socialist inspired mass murder, war, and the terrible economic, social and environmental carnage witnessed over the last century.

The popular movement that began in Luton three short years ago marked a decisive turning point in this country. It was the moment when British people began to reassert their national pride and identity and started to resist the forces that will, unless stopped, destroy the culture, traditions and precious freedoms of Great Britain that so many, so recently, gave their lives for.

Paul Weston, Stephen Lennon and Kevin Carroll will lead the Party’s assault on corruption, complacency and unaccountability in British (and EU) politics. Together they will provide a powerful voice to a British working class all but abandoned by the mainstream parties; to a middle class whose traditional values have come under relentless attack; and to Britain’s service and ex-service personnel – the ultimate defenders of freedom – who have all too often been taken for granted.

British Freedom will reassert the primacy of British law, culture, values and traditions as the necessary basis for establishing unity in a country increasingly riven by Leftist inspired racial, cultural and religious division.

Lord Astor and Nottingham Labour play the BNP card

Lord Astor and Nottingham Labour play the BNP card | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

The Labour Party in Nottingham does not want the city to have a directly elected mayor. As part of their campaign in this week's referendum they issued a leaflet that begins:

The racist (blah blah blah) BNP & EDL want a £1M Extra Mayor.


That's the only way they can win in Nottingham...

It features the BNP and EDL logos prominently, but does not mention the Labour Party at all.


Lord Astor (David Cameron's father-in-law) does not want the House of Lords to be reformed. In a speech in the Lords today he said:

"In fact Ukip could have more peers than the Lib Dems. Ukip stand to gain most and, the rather frightening thought, the BNP might for the first time be represented in Westminster. One would have thought that was the very last thing the coalition would want."

This use of the BNP as a bogeyman is unwise and dishonest. It is dishonest because, as things stand, there is no prospect of a BNP mayor being elected in Nottingham, as the Labour Party there well knows.


Perhaps the BNP could win seats in the Lords under a proportional system, but that is democracy. The way to beat the BNP is to take them on in argument, not to rig the electoral system against them.


And it is unwise because such tactics are the BNP's best recruiting sergeant. I remember working in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets by-election on the Isle of Dogs in 1993. It was the second by-election in the ward in short order caused by a Labour councillor's disqualification for not attending meetings.


To overcome this handicap, Labour hit upon the idea of running a scare campaign: vote Labour or the BNP will get in. But the voters were understandably out of patience with Labour and in those days the Liberal Democrats ran the council so were not a home for protest votes. So having been told that the BNP had the best chance of beating Labour, many voters went for the BNP and the party won the seat.


I don't suppose anyone listens to the ramblings of Lord Astor, but Labour should beware of talking up the BNP in Nottingham. These stupid tactics may be its only hope of making an advance in the city.

Votes cast were as follows:

Kevin Carroll (British Freedom) 8,675

Olly Martins (Labour) 27,947

Jas Parmar (Conservative) 26,226

Six Birmingham terror suspects in custody

Six Birmingham terror suspects in custody | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Six Birmingham men accused of plotting a terror attack have been remanded in custody.


Jewel Uddin, 26, Omar Mohammed Khan, 27, Mohammed Hasseen, 23, Anzal Hussain, 24, Mohammed Saud and Zohaib Ahmed, both 22, appeared via video link in a preliminary Old Bailey hearing.


The men are jointly accused of preparing an act or acts of terrorism between 1 May and 4 July this year.

They were arrested after police found weapons in a car on the M1.

Guns, knives, machetes and a home-made explosive device were allegedly discovered.

Mr Uddin, Mr Khan and Mr Hasseen were arrested after a routine stop of a Renault Laguna by police on the M1, near Sheffield, on 30 June.

The weapons are said to have been found in that vehicle along with a note addressed to the English Defence League, which was planning a rally in South Yorkshire that day.

Mr Hussain, Mr Saud and Mr Ahmed, who were arrested on 4 July, were allegedly travelling in a gold Rover which was in a convoy with the Laguna.

The men face an allegation that they took part in activities including the manufacture of an improvised explosive device, the acquisition of firearms and other weapons, and the purchase of motor vehicles connected with the charges.

It follows a series of arrests by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, assisted by the North East Counter Terrorism Unit.

On Tuesday, the men spoke only to confirm their identities.

They were remanded in custody ahead of a hearing in January next year.

Why try to take baby from EDL mother but not from ‘terrorists’?

Why try to take baby from EDL mother but not from ‘terrorists’? | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
UK News :: Why try to take baby from EDL mother but not from ‘terrorists’?


SOCIAL workers want to seize a baby as soon as it is born because they are concerned about the mother’s violent links to the English Defence League.
Durham County Council has told Toni McLeod she would pose a “risk of ­significant harm” to the baby. Social workers fear the child would become radicalised with EDL views and want it put up for adoption immediately.
Mrs McLeod, who is 35 weeks pregnant, is a former leading member of the EDL, in which she was notorious as “English Angel”. The 25-year-old has a string of convictions for violence, including butting and biting a police officer after an EDL march in 2010 and she has been banned from owning dogs after setting a pit bull on a former partner.
However, her cause has been taken up by Lib Dem MP John Hemming who, despite his loathing for the EDL, raised it in the Commons. He contrasts her treatment with that of the extremist Islamic cleric Abu Qatada, who was allowed to remain with his ­children when he was briefly remanded on bail earlier this year as the Government tries to deport him.
He said: “It raises a curious question as to why Abu Qatada is allowed to radicalise his children but the state won’t take the chance of allowing Toni McLeod to look after her baby in case she says something social workers won’t like.
“I am very strongly opposed to the EDL, which I believe to be a racist organisation, but I do not think we should remove all of the children of the people who go on their demonstrations, however misguided they may be.”
Mrs McLeod has posted racist abuse on social networking sites but denies being racist. She claims she is no longer active with the EDL and has never been charged with violence against children.
Social workers have told her husband Martyn he would be unable to care for his child because he is a full-time soldier just back from Afghanistan.

Mr Hemming, who chairs the Justice For Families campaign group, said yesterday: “This case is one where the ‘thought police’ have decided to remove her baby at birth because of what she might say to the baby. I wonder what the baby’s father is thinking when he fights for a country which won’t allow him to have a child because of what the child’s mother might say.
“Toni now accepts she was wrong to have gone on EDL demonstrations but freedom of speech means nothing if people are not allowed to say things that are thought to be wrong.”
Mrs McLeod wants to move to ­Ireland for the birth to avoid England’s social services. Rifleman McLeod, 31, plans to request a transfer to Northern Ireland so he can be with his child.
Durham County Council told Mrs McLeod on Friday her unborn baby was being placed on its child protection register. Last month, a judge ruled that her three other children, who have different fathers, should be permanently removed from her care.
The Sunday Express is unable to give details of the judge’s explanation for legal reasons.
Documents seen by the Sunday Express reveal social workers are worried about Mrs McLeod’s previous alcohol and drug misuse, her “aggressive behaviour” and her alleged “mental health issues” 
They concede she is no longer involved with the EDL but believe she is now involved with a splinter group, the North West Infidels. The social worker’s report states: “Toni clearly needs to break away from the inappropriate friendships she has through either the EDL or break-off group in order that she can model and display appropriate positive relationships to the baby as he/she grows and develops.
“Toni has been a prominent member of the EDL. They claim they are a peaceful group, however, they have strong associations with violence and racism.”
Mr McLeod said: “Toni would never harm a child.”
The council said it was unable to comment.

Britain’s youngest teenage terrorist: ‘a wake-up call for parents’

Britain’s youngest teenage terrorist: ‘a wake-up call for parents’ | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A senior Muslim MP has warned parents they need to do more to protect their children against Islamic extremism.

Hammad Munshi: Britain’s youngest terrorist
Speaking after the sentencing of Britain’s youngest terrorist, Shahid Malik, the minister for International Development, said parents had to be vigilant against the threat of radicalisation.

He also called on mosques to do more to combat fundamentalism.
The MP spoke out after the sentencing of Hammad Munshi who was just 15 when he was recruited by a terror cell believed to have been plotting against the Royal Family.
The teenager, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, had downloaded information about bomb-making material from the internet and hidden notes about martyrdom under his bed.
The judge at the Old Bailey said the schoolboy’s head had been filled with “pernicious and warped ideas” which led to his involvement in a plan to kill kuffars or non-believers.

Scottish Defence League wins appeal to hold rally in Edinburgh

Scottish Defence League wins appeal to hold rally in Edinburgh | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

The Scottish Defence League has won an appeal to hold a rally in the capital.


The group previously had a request to march through Edinburgh rejected by the City of Edinburgh Council.

At Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Wednesday it was granted permission to gather on Regent Road on Saturday.

Anti-fascism group Unite Against Fascism Edinburgh have said the city’s residents will be “rightly outraged” by the decision.

Luke Henderson from the group said: "This is not about freedom of speech; this is about vile racists bringing a message of hate into Edinburgh. They want to divide communities and spread fear and violence. Edinburgh is one city of many cultures and in this town there is overwhelming opposition to racism and organised racists and fascists."

Following the decision, a spokesman for the SDL said: "We have legitimate concerns about extremist interpretations of Islam and cultural applications of Islam including issues such as forced marriages and honour violence. We have the right to communicate our concerns to our fellow citizens and make them aware of our concerns in the capital of Scotland this Saturday.

"The Scottish Defence League would like to thank the courts for overturning the council and letting democracy thrive in this great nation."

WHILE a handful of businesses were left counting the cost of Saturday’s English Defence League demonstration, footfall in Luton town centre was more than double that of February 5 last year when the EDL held its last protest.


Pubs and shops that opened in Park Street – the scene of the EDL march – where business owners were full of praise for the police and delighted at the good behaviour of the EDL supporters.


Paulette Brown, landlady at The Chequers in Park Street, said: “Everyone that came in was very polite, we had security and didn’t need it. We didn’t see any trouble at all down here and took more money than usual. I was very impressed by the police organisation, it was great.”


Another business owner, who stayed open on Saturday morning and who we agreed not to name, said: “There was no trouble at all and the police handled it brilliantly.

3,000 English Defence League supporters in Luton

Luton was flooded with 1,500 police as tensions mounted that the right wing organisation's supporters might clash with a counter demonstration by a group from Unite Against Fascism.


Bottles, fireworks and smoke bombs were set off as 1,500 officers tried to contain thousands of English Defence League supporters holding a protest march in Luton today.
The town centre was flooded with police as tensions mounted that the right wing organisation's members might clash with a counter demonstration by a 1,000-strong group from Unite Against Fascism at the same time in the usually busy shopping area.
Two people were arrested on suspicion of public order offences, police said.

Bedfordshire Police said the day of action had concluded peacefully, despite ‘isolated incidents’ of disorder including smoke flares being set off and bottles being thrown towards police officers.
The cost of the police operation is put at between £600,000 and £1million and for the council £600,000.

Bedfordshire Police and Luton council tried to send out the message that Luton was open as normal and encouraged shops in the Mall to remain open.
But many shoppers chose to ignore the advice, instead deciding to stay away amid fears violence might erupt.
A police spokeswoman said a group of people from the counter protest, which formed under the 'We Are Luton' banner, had attempted to break away from the main march but were pushed back by officers.

Assistant Chief Constable Andrew Richer said: ‘Overall the policing of these protests has been a resounding success and is testament to everyone involved including the community themselves and our partners.
‘It is disappointing that we saw disorder from some members of Unite Against Fascism, who were part of the 'We Are Luton' march, who attempted to break out of the agreed protest route. This shows policing of these events is justified as there is such a large area to protect.
‘The policing operation has been in the planning for weeks and the professionalism of the officers was borne out today. We were assisted by 20 forces and it's a great example of how forces can work together in difficult circumstances.
‘I'd like to thank everyone involved in the planning and execution of the operation, all our partner agencies and in particular the community mediators who volunteered to help us communicate.

'Their involvement really made a difference. I am confident the town is now back to normal and disruption has been minimised.’
Police said the two people arrested remained in police custody. A spokeswoman said one was an EDL supporter and the other from the 'We Are Luton' group.
Councillor Hazel Simmons, leader of Luton Borough Council, said: ‘I'd like to thank Bedfordshire Police, all the staff at the council and everyone in the community for coming together and again facilitating a peaceful day in Luton.
‘I was very disappointed that the EDL chose to come to Luton again today so soon after their previous protest in February last year which caused large scale disruption to the people of the town and loss of trade for its businesses.
‘I would like to stress that what happened in town today does not represent the real Luton. The Luton I know is a town where people get along well together, celebrate our diversity and work together to overcome challenges.’

Police were on duty to make sure EDL demonstrators did not enter the Bury Park area of Luton, where most of the town's 30,000 Muslim population live.
They also were there to prevent any Muslims attacking the EDL.
The EDL has held demonstrations across the country since it was formed in Luton in March 2009 as a response to Muslim radicals, who disrupted a home-coming parade by the Royal Anglian Regiment.
In February, last year, their demonstration in St George's Square in Luton cost businesses £1 million as the shopping centre was closed.

Terrorist Arrests Threaten Chances of Harmony in Luton

Terrorist Arrests Threaten Chances of Harmony in Luton | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Posted on May 2, 2012, in EDL News

The threat of Islamic terrorism remains the greatest challenge faced by our security services.

We know that there are Islamic extremists in Britain and abroad.

And we know that they are actively plotting to commit more terrorist atrocities.

We know that not all terrorists are Muslims, but we also know that attacks by Islamic militants far outnumber attacks by any other group, either religious or political.

We know that the Muslim community has specific a problem with so-called ‘honour-violence’, that British Muslim men account for the majority of child-grooming offences and that numerous British mosques teach separatism, supremacism or even outright hatred of non-Muslims.

From all of this we have come to one simple conclusion: Islam needs reform.

Not all British Muslims are extremists – far from it. But most extremists turn out to be Muslims, so clearly there is an underlying problem.

It’s not easy to determine exactly what is wrong and exactly what needs to change, but surely there shouldn’t be any stigma attached to simply recognising the need for reform?

But, sadly, there is. Often we find that even the slightest criticism of Islam is portrayed as if it were a vicious attack on all Muslims.

In the Channel 4 programme ‘Proud and Prejudiced’ the filmmakers followed EDL Leader Tommy Robinson around his home town of Luton.

Tommy was (and still is) concerned that Luton remains a breeding ground for terrorism. He said, quite simply, that there will be more terrorists from Luton:

For this he was portrayed by some commentators and politicians as a scaremonger, as someone out to divide communities or to wreck the harmony that Luton’s citizens usually enjoy.

Rarely was he portrayed honestly, as a decent person worried about the spread of extremism and not afraid to speak the truth as he sees it, however unfortunate or unpleasant it may be.

But, of course, he was right. Luton is not ‘in harmony’, as much as he wishes it were.

Earlier this week, exactly as Tommy predicted, four Luton men were charged with terrorism offences, including the collecting and supplying of funds for terrorist purposes overseas.

Is this really what we want our country to be known for exporting!?

The BBC didn’t think the men’s religion was worth mentioning in their article, but then no one was going to leap to the conclusion that these with Sikh or Buddhist extremists.

The Guardian, The Independent and The Telegraph all managed to use the word ‘Jihad’ when reporting about the case, but only because they were quoting the title of one of the pieces of extremist literature that the men are accused of possessing.

None of them actually mentioned the word ‘Islam’ or the word ‘Muslim’, even though it is abundantly clear that the perpetrators were Muslims, inspired by al-Qaeda and the Islamic concept of Jihad.

Perhaps this was simply too obvious to be worth mentioning. But compare how these major media outlets whitewashed all mention of religion from their articles with how Bedfordshire Police announced the arrests:

“In the planning of these search warrants, full consideration has been given to treating those arrested, and especially their families, with appropriate respect for cultural and religious identity as far as is possible.”

These are terrorist suspects, not petty thieves. Of course that doesn’t mean that the police should go around ram-raiding mosques and searching under burkhas (unless absolutely necessary!), but as far as we know, they don’t. Should they really need to announce to the Muslim community that in the process of arresting yet more Muslim extremists they’ve been sure not to upset anyone?

What does “appropriate respect for cultural and religious identity” even mean? We’d expect the police to always treat people with appropriate respect, so why do they appear so concerned with cultural and religious sensitivities?

Our guess is simple: they recognise just how sensitive the Muslim community in Britain is to the slightest criticism or imagined insult.

Why else would major newspapers avoid mentioning Muslims or Islam in connection to acts of terrorism, whilst the police make a point of ensuring that no one’s ‘sensitivities’ are provoked?

This sensitivity is not something that we should be encouraging, because it prevents the Muslim community from being receptive to criticism. And without accepting fair-minded criticism, how can the Muslim community ever support the reforms necessary to defeat extremism?

We don’t want to insult Muslims, to divide communities, to spread hatred, or whatever else we are sometimes accused of. We simply want Islamic extremism to stop. We want an end to terrorist attacks, an end to honour-violence and an end to all other forms of extremism that are in some way connected with Islam.

It might not be an easy task, but it’s an important one.

Surely we should expect the Muslim community, the government and the media to be doing all they can to educate the next generation of British Muslims so that they may avoid the appeal of extremism?

Unfortunately, we don’t believe they’re doing anything like enough. Further arrests in places like Luton make this abundantly clear.
