Update: The arrest of Tommy Robinson on a “public order offence” is confirmed here.
In the United States, today is Veterans’ Day (formerly known as Armistice Day). It marks the ninety-second anniversary of the end of the Great War, and is a day of solemn ceremony honoring the veterans of all our wars.
In Britain the 11th of November is called Remembrance Day, and from today on it will be remembered as the day that England was publicly acknowledged to be an outpost of the new Islamic Caliphate.
In Kensington this morning, while “persons of British background” were remaining silent in remembrance of the nation’s war dead, Muslims — the ungrateful beneficiaries of the British welfare state who despise their host country — were burning poppies and proclaiming Islamic dominance.
According to The Daily Mail:
Islamic protesters sparked fury today after they burned a model of a poppy and deliberately broke the silence at Armistice Day commemorations in central London.
As millions of Britons fell silent to remember those who have died in war, members of a group called Muslims Against Crusades clashed with police during an ‘emergency demonstration’ in Kensington, west London.
As the clock struck 11am, the Islamic protesters burned a model of a poppy and chanted ‘British soldiers burn in hell’.
They held banners which read ‘Islam will dominate’ and ‘Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell’.
It is understood the event took place in Kensington because it is outside a protected zone around Parliament where spontaneous protests are banned.
Police were questioning people they suspected were preparing to travel to Kensington after arriving at Victoria Station.
It is thought Muslims Against Crusades is a splinter group of Islam4UK, founded by Anjem Choudary.
This was a celebration of Mohammedan conquest. If these scum face no consequences for their acts, it is as if the UK had officially declared itself an Islamic colony.
The English Defence League vowed that it would not take this lying down:
A series of incendiary comments were posted on a social networking website linked to the English Defence League.
Some members pledged to attend while others showered the Islamic group with abuse and criticised police for allowing the demonstration to take place.
English Defence League protester Clive Donnellan, 49, a construction manager said: ‘The MAC could have chosen a more sensitive day to protest. They are preaching hate and although it’s great to have free speech this shouldn’t be happening today. They can come down any other day and say what they think.’
And I just received this unconfirmed report from a contact in the EDL:
[EDL leader] Tommy Robinson was arrested for jumping the police barrier and launching into the Muslims who were burning poppies.
It’s enormously gratifying to learn that there is at least one Englishman who is willing to disregard the personal consequences to himself and stand up for his country.
On this Remembrance Day of 2010, let’s remember what Tommy Robinson and the English Defence League stand for during this, the twilight of England and the dawn of the Islamic Republic of Britain.
