After two tours in two years 200 British troops, minus 12 of their comrades, returned home to a small group of angry, hate filled, Muslim protesters.
As the soldiers marched down the route of what was meant to be a patriotic parade to welcome home heroes they had to listen to these protesters call them such names as “rapist” and “baby-killer”.
Sayful Islam, self-styled leader of the Luton branch of al-Muhajiroun – the now-banned radical organisation led by Sheikh Omar Bakri – said: ‘The anger has been rising. The parade was the final insult.
‘They have killed, maimed and raped thousands of innocent people. They can’t come here and parade where there is such a Muslim community. What do they have to be proud of?’
It seems these Muslim protesters are able to, at will, excuse the untold number of bloodbaths their own co-coreligionists are responsible for around the globe.
Thankfully there were plenty of grateful British citizens along the parade route to greet and thank these brave soldiers for their service.
The Muslims attempted to prove their accusation that these soldiers are murderers by holding placards such as this.
Of course, images such as the following from 9/11 in my great nation of The United States of America, the London train bombings and the Madrid train bombings, mean nothing to these protesters. I allow for the possibility that these images actually bring joy to these particular protesters.
Then we have this man here.
Consider his placard.
Isn’t his logic exactly the kind of logic Muslims have been asking us to reject since 9/11? If we take his logic and reverse it then we can say, “Religion of Islam, Religion of Terrorists.”
You are free to protest against these returning troops, because of these returning troops. You are ungrateful as well as hateful!
