EDL Newsletter July 2012
Killing a Kafir who is fighting you is OK. Killing a Kafir for any reason, you can say, it is OK – even if there is no reason for it. You can poison, ambush and kill non-believers. You must have a stand with your heart, with your tongue, with your money, with your hand, with your sword, with your Kalashnikov. Don’t ask shall I do this, just do it.
Abu Hamza al-Masri. (Egyptian born British Cleric)
Welcome to the July Newsletter, We once again bring you, ‘On the Demo Front’ and ‘Breaking News’. We again ask you to dig deep into those purses and pockets and buy us a pint. The price of a pint or two is not much to ask to help fund the fight against extremist Islam. We still need to finance a security team and protection for Tommy whilst he is in Sweden. Last time Tommy was in Scandinavia, all the important counter-jihad leaders and speakers had security teams except for Tommy who had to rely on Geert Wilders security team to get him safely out of Aarhus in Denmark. So please, help Tommy and help to keep him safe in the most Islamised country in Europe and give as generously as you can. Every pound counts.
If you don’t feel like buying us a pint, then why not treat yourself to an EDL shirt or some other item. Come and browse and see what takes your fancy. Profits from sales go to help in the funding of the EDL.
On The Demo Front
On Saturday the 14th, the EDL made their way to Bristol to take the message about Islam and Islamisation of Britain and the effects of Islamic teaching on grooming and rape of vulnerable non-Muslim girls. Earlier, Osman warnings were given to two of the organisers and a bomb threat (a hoax as it turned out) made. The UAF once again decided that the law didn’t apply to them and tried to desperately stop the coach companies from carrying the EDL to Bristol, by posing as the police and telling the companies not to carry the EDL. It didn’t matter for nearly 800 people made their way by whatever means at their disposal and arrived for the demonstration. The UAF once again were ever present and despite a plea from the EDL not to have the two demonstrations in line-of-site, the police duly allowed the UAF to get within sight of the EDL which led to much taunting and stone-throwing on either side. The EDL protest was by and large peaceful whilst the UAF despite pleas from the local Muslim community were intent on violence. Martin Smith, the Socialist Worker member and and UAF leader was seen being dragged away under arrest by the police.
The EDL had met with the local Muslim community and explained why they were there and both sides came to some mutual understandings. For once the EDL did not have to contend with Muslim youth trying to get involved. It is a first for the EDL and for the Muslim community. As we are constantly reminding people, we are not against Muslims, but against the political and legal aspects of Islam which are being imposed on us. We hope that this will lead other Muslim community groups to engage with us. It should be noted that the UAF were given the same opportunity to meet with the same Muslim community but declined, preferring to ignore the people they are supposed to be ‘defending’. It was not lost on the Muslim residents of Bristol.
Although there arrests, most of these were from the UAF. The EDL were well-behaved in the face of abuse, intimidation and violence from the UAF. The usual speeches were made, which can be found here:
On Saturday 21st of July, the local Essex Division of the EDL held a flash demonstration in Chelmsford to voice opposition to the building of a mosque in the Victoria Road area of Chelmsford. 30 members of the EDL gathered at the Shire Hall with a strong police presence. There three arrests made on alleged race crimes.
The Yorkshire Division are organising a demonstration in Keighly in protest at the Islamic grooming and rape gangs that are operating in the area. If you can get there please come and show your support. Let us show the people of Keighly that we care enough to voice their fears and concerns for them.
Later, in mid-August we shall be going to protest in Walthamstow. This is the town that Anjem Choudhary and his MAC followers have declared will be a shariah zone – an Islamic emirate within the borders of the Great Britain. We will be there to let them know that it will never happen on our watch.
This one is for the diary. It’s a little way off. We shall be taking our message to the streets of Walsall later in September. We have more details nearer the date including why we are going to Walsall, so pencil it in and watch this space.
A Victory for a Community – Bulls Head Pub Mosque project in Stockport Stopped.
In Stockport, local businesses and residents got together to oppose the development of the Bulls Head public house in Stockport. The change of use from business to place of worship had not been followed properly, but the local council were due to give it the green light until the local community led by the EDL stood in opposition and despite the usual diatribes from the local Labour councillors about the EDL being racist, the people of Stockport held their ground and made it plain in no uncertain terms that they didn’t want the mosque on business grounds, traffic issues and other related problems that it would cause the local businesses and residents. The people gained much support through the facebook group Stockportsaysnotothebullsheadmosque, where 800 people signed up in support. Local councillors were told plainly that they would lose support if the application went through. On Wednesday 18th July the council decided not to give permission and on the Thursday the application was withdrawn. This is a victory for commonsense, the people of Stockport and the EDL. The people of Stockport now see the EDL in a very different light. Well done to all the EDL people involved for their efforts and well done to the local residents and businesses.
Protest in Sweden by SION.
As was mentioned last month, the EDL will be in Sweden in August to lend support to the SION (Stop the Islamisation of Nations) alliance and peacefully protest the Swedish surrender to Islam. We will be there to highlight the refusal of Western nations to accept that Islam is a problem and is not just restricted to one or two countries, but to the whole world.
Kev Carroll to Stand for Police Commissioner for Bedfordshire!
We are pleased to announce that the EDL Joint Leader and British Freedom Party co-Vice Chairman Kevin Carroll is to stand for Police Commissioner for the Bedfordshire Police Authority. Kevin has strong views on policing and amongst other things will be campaigning for:
• An end to cuts in the police service.
• Substantial improvements to pay and conditions of officers on the street, who are at the sharp end of crime and disorder in Britain.
• An end to political correctness, which is forced on officers by their politicised superiors, diverting time and energy to ‘hate speech’ and other trivial offences whilst dangerous criminals go free.
• An end to ‘two-tier’ policing. There should be no special favours for minority groups, criminals should feel equal force of the law – British law, not Sharia Law or any other kind of alien law.
• Strong policing of anti-social behaviour that blights the lives of many families.
• No more police time wasted on manning speed traps.
• A crackdown on the dealing of hard drugs to young people.
• Proper enforcement of the law against alien practices such as female genital mutilation.
• Rigorous policing of all areas where crime is suspected, regardless of ‘cultural sensitivities’. Paedophile gangs must NEVER AGAIN be allowed to operate with impunity as they have in Rochdale and Dewsbury.
For Kevin’s candidacy, we need to raise a deposit of £5000, and are asking members and supporters to give what they can, so that British Freedom can begin making Britain’s police service properly accountable to the law-abiding majority who pay for it.
