Tomorrow is the day of the EDL protest in Leicester in the UK
Who are the EDL?
They are a group of anti muslim people ( they are white, black, asian - hindu and mainly sikh).
Initally they planned a peaceful march through the city centre.Peaceful and this lot dont equate. The police were worried that a number of hot head muslims would meet them half way and a fight erupt. The home secretary banned the march but by law they are still allowed a static protest.
The result is the town is being boarded up in anticipation- kids will be kept in and police are preparing for their largest incident in twenty five years. What brought it home to me was two ladies in front of me in a queue who were scared -- they were asian muslims, mums with kids.
So sometime tomorrow spare a thought for Leicester and hope it goes out with a whimper and we can get back to living in the tolerant city we live in.
Oh, I hope all goes peacfully. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
how sad. I hope all will be safe.. and also tomorrow is John Lennon's birthday who was a big peace activist..
well it wasnt that bad
17 arrests for public order offences
2000 protestors from two opposing groups and 2000 police. Just as the protestors moved into one of the muslim areas the police got back in control and sent them packing.
The inhabitents of the city stayed at home- no one went shopping just not worth getting caught up in
Glad to hear it went largely without incident.
As always, the innocent are the victims, imprisoned in their homes while angry, intolerant people take to the streets.
Would a peaceful demonstration by peace-loving Muslims have done any good to prove that the majority of Muslims are just that?
Probably not -- when you have mob mentality, the mob doesn't see individuals. It sees "the enemy."
Does a counter-demonstration by "hot-head Muslims" only support the EDL's claims? Yes.
The smart thing to do is to rise above/ignore/not give the mob any more fuel for its fire.
I'm really sorry the UK is caught up in this hatred.
Wish I had an answer for all of us! Mm
What with the Islamic stated doctrine as to non-believers, what could possibly go wrong…?

It's huge. It all began as a peaceful demonstration against the demolition of Taksim Gezi Park in Instanbul. The Turkish government intended to replace the park with a shopping mall. What began as a peaceful demonstration, however, has transformed into the biggest civil uprising...

Your first statement should probably be a definition of Islam: is it what the terrorists, using religion for an excuse for jihad, worship or is it what the more peaceful people worship. Or somewhere in between?

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/briefs/a … 20buildingI haven't seen much reporting on this! Looks like the left has a penchant for weapons! I wonder what they were planning to do with this? This is an indication of what to expect when the left doesn't get their way!
