It takes a nation to protect the nation
We return to Dudley to again protest the plans to build a new mosque here.
Everyone knows that Mosques facilitate the teachings of Islam and therefore the promotion of Sharia law. We reject this outcome and these efforts. We know where it will lead.
Until we see an Islam that totally rejects the teaching of the domination of Muslims over Non-Muslims, and rejects Sharia law we must error on the side of caution and say with Leon and Snowy: ‘No new mosque in Dudley, no new Mosques anywhere in England.’
On 2-3 of May this year when Leon and Snowy were on the rooftop of the site for the planned new mosque they spoke for all EDL. On that rooftop they stood for us and we will stand with them as they face charges for their peaceful protest.
During that prophetic protest we know the police were put under pressure by the local Muslim community to act quickly and harshly to bring Leon and Snowy down off the roof. The police were given the impression that Muslim youth would go on a riot if they did not bring the protest to an end. The police acted without regard to the safety of Leon and Snowy and violently broke through to the roof with armed weapons.
They assaulted Leon and Snowy breaking Leon’s arm and gave Snowy a black eye. Static, peaceful protests in places like Parliament Square last for years without such a heavy-handed response from the forces of the State, but here in Dudley, at the behest of local Muslims, the police cannot act quickly enough. I am ashamed at the actions of some in the police force. Some act like they are servants only of the Muslim population, like good dhimmis.
The insistence of the Muslim leaders in Dudley to build a new mosque against the wishes of the vast majority of the local people is an act of selfishness and a provocation; even if it is in a slightly different location it will not be tolerated. For them to continue asking for the Mosque says they do not really care about community cohesion and harmony. We call on the local and national planning authorities to make it perfectly clear that the mosque will not be built.
For our part we will continue to assist the local people who do not want this edifice to be built. We applaud local Councillor Malcolm Davis who truly represents the local people when he said after our last protest:
'If justice isn’t done and more demonstrations have to be planned to stop this edifice being built I will exercise my right and the right of every single citizen of Dudley to express my opposition to the development of anything that does not have the people’s approval.'
In many previous demonstrations we have seen the police bend to the will of those who oppose us and our message. Some Police forces act like they are afraid. Well, friends I look at you and I can say with confidence that we are not afraid! Am I right? Are we afraid?!
The English Defence League will not stand by and let Muslim extremists slowly turn this green and pleasant land into a place like Iran (where women are stoned to death for the so-called crime of adultery), or Pakistan, or Afghanistan or any other ‘stan!
No, we take a stand here and now to support the local resistance to this new Mosque. By our standing firm we will send a message of hope throughout this country and indeed through out Europe. The push back continues here in Dudley until the job is done.
May God bless and guide our efforts,
God bless the Queen!
