Please check out my piece on the EDL (English Defense League) in the American Thinker. After years of floundering and false starts, England and Europe (via SIOE — Stop the Islamization of Europe) may have finally found their movement for freedom.
In England, A Victory for Freedom Pamela Geller, The American Thinker
In an unprecedented victory for free people everywhere, a monster mosque costing $27 million that had been planned for the English town of Dudley despite overwhelming opposition from the townspeople has been scrapped. 55,000 locals had signed a petition against the mosque, but the dhimmi government went over their heads and said it was going to be built anyway. But in the end, the Muslims and the government didn’t get their way.
That this mosque would have gone ahead at all after the petitions shows a contempt for the people that is breathtaking. But now it has been scrapped after a brilliant protest staged by the courageous English patriots of the much-maligned English Defence League.
The EDL on Sunday occupied the rooftop of the abandoned building that had been slated to be turned into the mammoth new mosque. EDL members camped out on the roof of the building. The EDL’s website said that the protestors had “food and water to last them weeks, and a PA system to give speeches.” They played the Muslim call to prayer over their PA system, to give the locals a taste of what was in store for them.
Police closed streets as EDL members streamed into Dudley to show support. Riot vans and helicopters converged on the scene, hoping to bring the EDL’s protest to a swift end. Muslims also trekked to Dudley to counter the EDL. Senior EDL leadership informed me that thousands of Muslims soon began rioting in Dudley, throwing missiles and objects at the protesters (although they were unable to reach them) – and in the process showing the true face of Islam.
EDL leaders also reported that in addition to the thousands of rioting Muslims, numerous Muslim gangs were roaming Dudley. Beatings and stabbings were reported as well. The West Midlands police, the second largest police force in the United Kingdom, could not control the wilding Muslims.
Yet in the mainstream media reports, they held back from reporting on how the Muslims were beating non-Muslims, and never identified the assailants. What makes this more egregious is that the media has no trouble demonizing the EDL, which, ironically enough, is fighting for the very freedoms those decayed liberal journalist hacks so richly enjoy. Oh, the irony.
The EDL is routinely smeared in the British media, as the Tea Party activists are smeared in the U.S. media. The corrupt, biased media defames any group, person, or organization standing against Islamic supremacism. They tar, feather and destroy the good name of good people who stand for life, liberty and individual rights. Libel and slander like “racist,” “fascist,” “bigot,” etc. color every news report of every counter-jihad action. The quisling media is the propaganda arm of jihad. It’s despicable. There is nothing racist, fascist or bigoted about the EDL.
