Poppy-burning Muslim protesters mar Armistice Day commemorations as millions fall silent to remember war dead
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'.
The Muslims Against Crusades website includes graphic images of children wounded in warfare and the torture of detainees at Abu Ghraib.
The protest, in Exhibition Road, near Hyde Park, involved about 50 people while about another 50 counter-demonstrators had to be kept apart from the group by a line of police. Three men were arrested at the scene - two for public order offences and one for assaulting a police officer.
11 November has been commemorated in all Commonwealth nations as Remembrance Day, to recall specifically the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and civilians in times of all wars.
This year, we commemorate not only the dead of all the wars in which our people’s blood was spilled, but also we consider why they bravely made this sacrifice.
With a very few exceptions, all of the tragic wars which were fought were done so to save Britain from invasion, occupation and subjugation.
They were fought to keep Britain British, that this nation and its distinct culture, traditions and heritage be preserved.
Today, this heritage for which the heroes of the past sacrificed so much, stands on the brink of destruction.
Mass Third World immigration, Islamification and the deliberate destruction of our culture, language and social structure, is the aim of the ruling parties at Westminster.
Today, as we recall the dead of past wars, let us rededicate ourselves to ensuring that the thing for which they fought and died — Britain — remains British.
