"Bomb, bomb New York"

#1
Muslim protesters today called for the bombing of New York in a demonstration outside the US embassy in London.

Some among the crowd burned an effigy of Tony Blair on a crucifix and then set fire to a Union flag and a Stars and Stripes.

Led by a man on a megaphone, they chanted, "USA watch your back, Osama is coming back" and "Kill, kill USA, kill, kill George Bush". A small detail of police watched as they shouted: "Bomb, bomb New York" and "George Bush, you will pay, with your blood, with your head."

Demonstrators in Grosvenor Square, some with their faces covered with scarves, waved placards which included the message: "Desecrate today and see another 9/11 tomorrow."

The protest was organised by groups including the Muslim Council for Britain and the Muslim Parliamentary Association of the UK.

One of the protesters called for the release of radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza. He shouted: "Your so-called democracy will fall under the sword of Allah. The day of judgment is coming."

At least we now know what the Muslim Council for Britain and the Muslim Parliamentary Association of the UK stand for.

brilliant they burned blair on a crucifix, i thought to myself. Then i realised the word effigy was present. Actually that would be a little harsh.

Seriously where do you draw the line at this sort of activity it is the hadly "fight the ban" type demonstration. It does worry me that such orgs with a such an image and remit can put their name to such incitful behaviour.

Quite. If this had been the BNP, or neo Nazi organisation then someone would have been all over them like the proverbial bad rash.

why cant we arrest them and kick them out ? at least you arresting the right ones as they are gathered in one place.

Surely this is all lies! Armourer your quite wrong. Islam is a religion of peace. They wouldn't do anything like this......
Tony Blair has told us all that islam is a pillar of peace,love and harmony.

Spot the deliberate sarcasm if you will...
Storeman Norman is quite right, if this had been a bunch of bad old whities burning flags of an islamic country and making death threats, then you can bet your bottom dollar arrests a plenty would follow.

However, i always find that incidents like this tend to enforce the arguement that multiculturalism does not work. So can we put an end to it please?????????????????????????? :evil:

Evidence that the Met should be armed with flamethrowers.

'The Sword of Allah'?.....................what f*cking century are these c*nts living in?

I'm not so sure about banning it - I've always thought public demonstrations by loonies like these are the best way of ensuring public support for the war on terror. The only ones I'd personally get rid of are the recruiters for people wanting to actually fight and those who appear sane and persuasive - they're far more dangerous. The loonies can run around looking insane all day long as far as I care.

pdf - agreed, provided that this also applies to the BNP & NF & other loonies. It sends a bad message both to the muslim fanatics and to the BNP/NF nutters if one is tolerated but not the other.

i take it they didnt do the demo in bluewater as they wouldn't be allowed in with all those hoodies on!
Annoyed that this type of thing is allowed to happen in the uk especially as we keep hearing about people having to take down their Union Jacks as they are likely to cause offence.

Evidently this has offended nobody in our halls of power; no statements of denunciation in any of the (internet) press that I can see. So that's all right then.

Agree Stoaty. However distasteful i find the policies and rantings of the likes of the BNP, we live in a democracy. If an ethnic minority is alowed to denounce the country they live in, burn its flag, claim death is coming to its population and burn efigy's of its politition - how can that be any less incitement to racial hatred than anything the BNP has to say.

It does worry me. The population takes great exception to people being treated differently based on colour, creed religion etc. It fuels racial hatred, and will eventually lead to trouble.

From AWOL's link:

MANCHESTER UNITED fans intent on using today's FA Cup Final clash with Arsenal to protest against the club's takeover could end up behind bars, police warned last night.

Any move in the Millennium Stadium to grandstand in front of a massive worldwide TV audience will be met with immediate police action.

...

[South Wales Police Superintendant Bob Evans] is also backing the restraint of supporters who plan to express their dislike of Malcolm Glazer's takeover by wearing black armbands in the stadium.

That's the idea. It's easier for the few to lord it over the many if the many are at each other's throats.

Let's face it, Islam, like all religions, is pretty f*****g backward. But then, that's just my opinion.

Perhaps someone will make a complaint to the Met (threatening behaviour or even incitement to murder), although the police should have taken action themselves. And please don't give me any boll@cks about the police being fettered by New Labour. If the operational police commander on the ground had wanted to make arrests, he could have and, in my opinion, should have.

Somewhere I've read that one of the demonstrators was a guy release from Gitmo on understanding he'd stay away from other nutters of his ilk. What price that for tough on crime etc etc

These people are British and they live in a democracy and as such have the right to freedom of expression, to gather and to protest.

We can't arrest them and 'kick them all out' - out to where? They live here and they are reacting to what they see as atrocities and injustice. You know, things like the bombing and killing of innocent people in Iraq and the starving of the Iraqi people through sanctions; the murderous Israeli regime illegally occupying Palestine with American support; the routine torture of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan; the ongoing illicit detention and torture of inmates at Guantanamo bay in Cuba. Cut the xenophobia please. You sharpheads should turn your attention to the real enemies - Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Blair, Murdoch, Berlusconi, Howard et al.

Yep. I was right. Yesterday I was going to call you a cnut, but I didn't just in case I was misreading you.

But I wasn't. You are a cnut.
