Muslims Protest British Soldiers Return

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Muslim extremists shout abuse at British soldiers during home-coming march

11 Mar 2009

A group of around 20 men in traditional Islamic dress held up banners and placards that read: "Anglian Soldiers Butchers of Basra", "Anglian Soldiers Criminals, Murderers Terrorists" and "Baby killers".

As the battalion, which is nicknamed The Poachers, reached Luton Town Hall the small group shouted and yelled "Terrorists" and "Anglian Soliders Go to Hell."

The protestors then had to be protected by police as angry supporters of the soldiers turned on them shouting: "Scum" and "No surrender to the Taliban."

As the parade finished in St George’s Square in front of the Duke of Gloucester, Colonel-in-chief for the regiment, the Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Sam Whitbread, a General Sir John McColl KCB and the Mayor of Luton, Councillor Lakhbir Singh, police had to force the protestors into a small area reserved for them by the town’s Arndale Shopping Centre.

Two lines of police officers protected the anti-war protestors from a large number of locals, some waving Union and St George’s flags, who turned their attention to them rather than the inspection of the soldiers by the dignitaries. There was a stand off between the two any groups who yelled insults at each other.

Police dogs and riot vans were also called to the scene to keep the two sides apart.

In all 200 soldiers led by a military band marched through Luton to mark their return home from a second six-month tour of Iraq in two years.

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. We hope as many people as possible will come out and show their support and appreciation of these brave soldiers."

How thoroughly despicable.

    The enemy within shows its angry, spittle-flecked face once more. From today’s UK Daily Express (and every other UK paper too)

    By Martyn Brown
    Muslim extremists sparked outrage last night after they subjected heroic British soldiers to vile abuse during a home-coming parade – and then were protected by the police.

    The radical Islamists screamed “terrorists” and denounced the 200 soldiers as “butchers of Basra” as they proudly marched in front of thousands of families and children.

    Other sickening signs described the troops from the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment as “Criminals, Murderers Terrorists”, “Baby Killers” and “Anglian Soldiers Go To Hell”.

    But when patriotic well-wishers, who had lined the streets of Luton to welcome home the soldiers, tried to defend them, police officers stepped in and allowed the protesters to continue with their insults.

    Riot police formed a protective barrier around the 20 protesters while furious onlookers, waving St George’s flags, shouted “scum.”

    Police dogs and riot vans were called to the scene and two men who had turned up to support the troops were arrested for public order offences.

    Last night one of the radicals continued his tirade of hate, saying the soldiers were “no better than Hitler”.

    Abu Omar, 30, said: “Those soldiers were in Iraq murdering and mutilating innocent people. They had blood on their hands.”

    Mr Omar, who said he was bred in Luton and worked as a carer for disabled people, added: “The soldiers have come into a town with a large Muslim population to promote an illegal war.

    “We are supposed to congratulate and support terrorists who are no better than Hitler…”

    Check out the pictures of their burkha-draped women too, all chanting away but somewhat muffled I expect:”Brtsh trps go to hll…mumble mumble”.

    Unfortunately the Brits have brought this upon themselves with allowing all these Muslims into their country. Of course we’re doing the same thing, kowtowing to the Muslims at every opportunity. The anti-war protesters do the exact same thing but their heralded by the left as the true heroes. These Muslims and every other anti-war freak are no better than Hitler themselves whether they live here or in the UK.

    Abu Omar, 30, said: “Those soldiers were in Iraq murdering and mutilating innocent people. They had blood on their hands.”

    Abu Omar then said That’s our job – we like to murder, mutiliate innocent people – we want their blood on our hands. It’s sharia law – and we like it – torturing people to death, beheadings, killing and raping little babies See, we even like to whip 75 year old women. It’s fun, said Abu Omar and other protestors in Islamic garb – we especially love to torture innocent women. Oh, those mean old brits took away our fun… The soldiers are no better than Hitler and we LOVE Hitler so stop muscling in on our terrorism.

    Other sickening signs described the troops from the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment as “Criminals, Murderers Terrorists”, “Baby Killers” STOP it cried the Muslims – we’re the cimrinals, murderers, and terrorists and we want to bring it here, too – so we can slice off your head if you wear your hair too long or if your wife wears lipstick. Damn what’s wrong with you Anglian whiteys?

    The real root of our problems, and this is digging deep, is that both in the UK and US we continually send lawyer after lawyer to represent us in the government. The world you get with lawyers running things is the world where people that wish you harm are allowed to freely support that harm right next door.

    We need tort reform in the US, and we need to start sending some normal people to represent us.

  5. BannedbytheTaliban says:

    Why aren’t they protesting the Muslims who killed their fellow Muslims in Iraq. The number one killer of Muslims has been and always will be ………… other Muslims. Those “Iraq War Casualties” are more likely to have been killed by terrorist than British troops. But the liberals and terrorist become less and less distinguishable every day.

    For those passive readers who may need a refresher, think of:

    Nick Berg
    Daniel Pearl
    Matt Maupin
    Jerry Zovko
    Wesley Batalona
    Scott Helvenston
    Michael Teague
    et. al.

    This is what true Islam is about.

    For me the big surprise is not the hatred spewed from these radical muslims, but rather the courage of some Britains to lash back in anger at these towel-headed antagonists. Wow. Some blokes actually found their cajones to tell these idiots to bugger off. Maybe there still is some hope in Mother England. Albeit a slim one at best.

  7. jrmcdonald says:

    Deport these muslim bastards now.

  8. sheehanjihad says:

    Do you know what really sucks? Some of the people who protested the islamist pigs’ incredibly crude and insensitive intolerance were arrested for “inciting”, and the stinking blobs of chicken shiite muslims were allowed to skate. THAT is what’s wrong with Britain. Letting muslim extremists get away with being muslim extremists. Those people need to be systematically removed from western society….by any means necessary.

    Minnesota has welcomed muslim extremists with open arms and coddled them at the expense of their own citizen’s rights. Now, they fear that some who have been taken for training in al qaeda camps may use their US passports to come back and kill people in their own towns and cities. You elected a muslim to represent you! What the hell did you expect? Tolerance? Idiots.

    How did we use to handle our enemies? Relentless bombing of every man, woman and child in Germany and Japan. The atomic bomb in Japan and relentless fire bombing in Germany until they simply gave up. what do we do now? Surgical strikes and precision guided munitions so as not to cause any collateral damage. Sounds so great and civilized doesn’t it. Precision bombs are expensive and leave way too many undesirable people standing. It seems we’ve become too civilized for our own good although a few surgical strike in England, Michigan and Minnesota might be in order.

    I was born in Luton as was my son, my father, my grandfather, great grandfather, ad infinitum. I don’t live there anymore as it has become a hotbed of muslim fanatacism. It was fantastic to see the people of Luton black and white, young and old fighting back against these deluded and twisted fools. Yet two of them were arrested for public order offences, none of the muslims. Par for the course in Luton ( and other areas of Britain) In Luton the police must take their shoes off before entering a muslim’s house on a raid! They must avert their eyes from the women, they must not use police dogs. The local bingo hall had to change its name from Mecca ( which it has been for over 50 years) because of violent protests from muslims. Not a week goes past without a story in the local paper about something that has offended or outraged, or shocked a muslim. They have taken local schools to court for not allowing girls to wear the jihab. I taught in a local college and white female teachers were treated with utter contempt. The young muslims were brainwashed in the mosques and we could do nothing about it. I really hope this was a pivotal moment and with support we can turn the tide against the islamicisation of this country. I know that sounds dramatic but bit by bit, piece by piece we have surrendered our culture to accommodate the wishes of these people. Luton is made up of many cultures today and everyone really does get along well with one noticeable exception. Sorry, rant over but this really did upset me.
