British Muslims Want Police to Act Against Demonstrators!!!

The Times of London is reporting a breath of fresh air amidst all the lunacy of the last week. The Muslim Council of Britian is calling on Scotland Yard to apprehend and charge those protesters in London carring placards that called for violence:

The Sunday Times - Britain

In London, Inayat Bunglawala of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said the extremists should be prosecuted. “The Metropolitan police should now consider all the evidence they have gathered from the protests to see if they can prosecute the extremists,” he said.
“It is time the police acted, but in a way so as not to make them martyrs of the Prophet’s cause, which is what they want, but as criminals. Ordinary Muslims are fed up with them.”
The council, a moderate umbrella group, was speaking after the demonstration last Friday in which some protesters chanted the name of Osama Bin Laden and “You must pay, 7/7 is on its way” — a reference to the London suicide bombings.
Five hundred demonstrators brandished placards, including ones proclaiming “Behead the one who insults the Prophet”, “Down, down UK” and “Freedom go to hell”.
Bunglawala said: “Lots of innocent Muslims went to the demonstration not realising that it was organised by extremists. They were hijacked by them.”

Please get that last sentence. Innocent Muslims hijacked by extremists.

The innocent Muslims of Britian are asking, begging, HMG to crack down on the extremists in their midsts!!! They can see that the Muslims wing-nuts are taking advantage of the situation. Mr. Blair, it's time to act!

Good post, Chas.

Did you notice the following disgrace at the end of the article:

"The Association of Chief Police Officers said the protests did not yet represent a serious threat to public order. A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Arrests, if necessary, will be made at the most appropriate time. This should not be taken as a sign of lack of action.”"

Sure - doing nothing should not be taken as a sign of lack of action. Given that Nick Griffin has been prosecuted for speaking his mind this is the most appalling double standard. While Nick Griffin is holocaust denying, racist, fascist scum, if what he said is a subject for prosecution then so is calling for actual violence - beheadings and suicide bombings.

I ran a post on this yesterday but then blogger crashed so its not there - glad to see someone got this posted! The Conservatives have finally come out and insisted that these Hezbollah mentalists be prosecuted. They need to. Because the BNP are an appealing option that most people had hitherto ignored (stooopid move al Beeb). Their membership is soaring as Mr Griffin becomes a persecuted 'martyr'.

Anyhows, the police should have acted quickly on Friday but im hopeful the Conservatives will really push them on this. Thankfully we have state sanctioned privacy infringement (aka CCTV) to track them down ;)

Thanks Frank and Alison, both of you are helping me with my thoughts on this. al, since you saw it, and Frank, with the admonition to not paint a whole group by the actions of a few.

Actually all the back and forth here and ATW is helpful, b/c TV news here is not showing any of this. CNN had zero coverage of Danish embassy burning, but kept running the ferry sinking story.

I have seen NOTHING of this on any news or any paper. They are concentrating on the embassy burning and mention every speck of unrest in the world EXCEPT for London. As you know there are many people in America who are not at all aware of this situation.

I am heartened to see a muslim stand up and call for arrests. However I don't buy the victimish stance of other supposedly moderate muslims present at the riot. (I'm calling it a riot for lack of a better word. Protest? Gathering?)

I finally managed to write a post which touches on what Monica raises. I appreciate that some groups have come out in support of moderate muslims but i think there is a long way to go to repair the damage done by the minority. Assuming they are a minority. Lets not forget that a huge nos of muslims questioned after 7/7 sympathised with the bombers. Noone took this issue to task. So i think its fair that this whole ugly issue is raised. No matter how uncomfortable.

"Outside the Danish embassy in London, demonstrators burned the Danish flag before ripping it apart. Scuffles broke out at Hyde Park Corner, as marchers clashed with a motorcyclist who called them "extremists". He was protected by police as some demonstrators surrounded him"

Saw the poor sod. This was part of the now forever lost post it seems (has that ever happened to anyone else??)

Anyway nuff said already on this. It will end up driving me/us mad!

Signing off!
