    A home-coming march by soldiers returning from Iraq has been marred by ugly scenes after Muslim anti-war protesters hurled abuse at the parade.

    Around 20 men in Islamic dress held up banners and placards saying 'Anglian Soldiers Butchers of Basra'', 'Anglian Soldiers Criminals, Murderers Terrorists' and 'Baby killers.'
    The protest took place as 200 soldiers from 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, known as the Poachers, paraded through Luton.
    A small group of protesters are hemmed in by police as the home-coming parade passes by
    The regiment had been returning from their second sixth-month tour in Iraq in the past two years.
    Riot police were forced to intervene when a number of locals, waving St George's flags then turned on the protesters shouting 'scum" and 'no surrender to the Taliban' .
    Police dogs and riot vans were also called to the scene to keep the two sides apart.
    Luton's Mayor Councillor Lakhbir Singh said: 'The Royal Anglian Regiment was given freedom of the town some years ago and we are proud to welcome them back.'
    As the parade finished in Luton's St George's Square in front of the Duke of Gloucester, police had to force the protestors into a small area reserved for them by the town's Arndale Shopping Centre.
    The home-coming march was led by a military band through Luton to mark their return home.

    The 2nd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment, 'The Poachers' are a light role Infantry Battalion based in Celle in Northern Germany as part of 7th Armoured Brigade, 'The Desert Rats.

    The 2nd Battalion of The Royal Anglian Regiment were parading through Luton when the protest took place

    The Poachers recruit from throughout the counties of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
    One part of their 'regimental ethos' is that it is 'based on mutual respect and trust.'
    In 2006 Pte Joseva Lewaicei and Pte Adam Morris died in a roadside bomb attack outside Basra.
    A Government report warned in November that Luton was one of the main centres of Islamic extremist activity in Britain, alongside London and Birmingham.
    The document described the kinds of people caught up in extremist activity in the UK.
    It said: 'The majority of extremists are British nationals of south Asian, mainly Pakistani, origin but there are also extremists from north and east Africa, Iraq and the Middle East, and a number of converts.
    'The overwhelming majority of extremists are male, typically in the 18-30 age range.
    'The main extremist concentrations are in London, Birmingham, with significant extremist networks in the South East, notably Luton.'
     
  2. Try mounting a protest like that in Taliban Afghanistan or Baathist Iraq, or indeed any Islamic controlled government, and see how far you get. Haha, the irony- you could choke on it!

  3. And then this :- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1160715/Terror-gang-bought-supplies-Lidl-Argos.html

    Four members of a British terrorist cell were jailed yesterday for supplying terrorists fighting in Afghanistan with equipment bought with dole money and donations given to help earthquake victims.

    They sent out laser range-finders, night sights, blank DVDs for suicide bombers to record their wills - and even balaclavas from Lidl.

    Mohammed Nadim, 29, was sentenced to three years and Shahid Ali, 34, and Shabir Mohammed, 30, each received two years and four months.


    They pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to supplying equipment, including computer parts, mobile phones and camping gear, to terrorists abroad.

    Abdul Raheem, 32, pleaded guilty to failing to disclose information on terrorism and was jailed for a year.

    The four, all from Birmingham, were members of a terror cell run by Parviz Khan, who was jailed for life last year for plotting to kidnap and behead a British Muslim soldier.

    They helped Khan send four shipments containing 86 boxes of supplies between April 2006 and February 2007, with an estimated value of £20,000.

    They even used the suffering of the victims of the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan as a cover to raise money and then described the terrorist items as relief aid.

    Duncan Atkinson, prosecuting, said Khan had masterminded the operation involving the four men and others from his home suburb of Alum Rock, Birmingham.
    Mr Atkinson said the items were dispatched to be used against British, U.S. and Pakistani forces.

    Mastermind: Parviz Khan is already serving life in prison for plotting to kidnap and behead a soldier
    'The items are not weapons, which are all too easily obtained in the lawless tribal areas,' he said.

    'They are sending sophisticated electronic equipment readily available in Western shops.'

    Khan, described as a 'fanatical extremist', identified items which were needed and even came back from Pakistan with 'shopping lists'.

    Members of the cell, who all have young families and had been claiming benefits, bought items from the Argos
    catalogue and scoured cut-price supermarkets such as Netto and Lidl.

    Balaclavas and thermal clothing would be packed alongside computer software and night-vision binoculars, the court heard.

    The shipments were described as household items, relief aid and charity donations.

    Mr Atkinson said the equipment was bought using tens of thousands of pounds collected from people who had been duped into thinking they were helping those suffering in the aftermath of the Pakistani earthquake, which killed 80,000 and left more than 3.5million homeless.

    The 'cargo' was packaged in Khan's home with the items often covered by packets of crisps before they were delivered by the international courier Sparkhill Shipping & Freight.

    The men were arrested in October 2008 following a 'long and painstaking investigation' by the West Midlands counter-terrorism unit.

    Acting Chief Inspector Dave Cook, who led the investigation, said: 'The diligence of the officers involved, and the thoroughness of the Crown Prosecution Service, meant there was a weight of evidence against the men.

    'As a result, we are pleased that they decided to plead guilty.'

    As he handed out their sentences Mr Justice Calvert-Smith told the men: 'The total cost of the goods exported must have amounted to something in the region of £20,000.

    'In addition money was being sent out separately, as were individual items being taken out by individuals on their person and in their luggage.

    'The earthquake and its consequences were used as cover for the export of these materials to assist terrorists.

    'It is accepted that in all three cases your involvement only began after the earthquake, at a time when the sympathy of the world must have been with the bereaved and those involved in the earthquake.

    'It is a tragedy for you and your families that you chose to get involved in this operation.'

    All the while creaming benefits from this country as well. I hope that this lot get deported after their sentences finish, but we know that just isn't going to happen.
     
  4. Why not just post your Daily Mail email address and ask for "an unnamed military source" to comment?

    :roll:
     
  5. This is thread number 3.
     
  6. The appropiate level of response to the islamic scum rioting in Luton should have seen them trampled into the ground then hosed down with salt water.

    It would be interesting to know how many of these islamic roiters are receiving benefits so genorously provided by the British taxpayer.

    As to the scum supplying the Taliban with equipment purchased with dole money,a painless execution is too good for them.

    Until the communist dominated 'justice' system is purged and robust punishments meted out for crimes of this nature,Britain will continue to slide down the drain.
