Nu har jeg hørt utallige gange, senest fra en journalist i denne uge, hvor ‘højreekstreme og fascistoide’ EDL er. Jeg har fulgt dem ret tæt fra dag ét, jeg har mødt Robinson, og jeg har ikke set nogle tegn på det. Da jeg ikke har pantsat min dømmekraft i nogen klub, ville jeg rapportere om det, hvis jeg så noget, men det har ikke været tilfældet. Det er ikke svært for mig at indrømme fejl, men alene det at journalister er flittige med adjektiverne og at Cameron rutineshamer dem, er ikke bevis nok. Cameron har helt forståelige grunde, men har journalisterne?

So much for muslim respect
When a young Afghanistan war hero appeared before a city council, it seemed the right thing to give him a standing ovation.Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher, 26, had been awarded the George Cross for throwing himself on a Taliban hand grenade to save his comrades. He survived only because his backpack took the force of the blast.
But to the horror of the rest of the council chamber, while most leapt to their feet to applaud him, two Muslim councillors remained firmly in their seats. Salma Yaqoob and Mohammed Ishtiaq, from the Respect party, insist that their refusal to clap the Royal Marine was a point of principle.But following the meeting at Birmingham City Council on Tuesday night, fellow councillors said they had grossly disrespected the soldier.Conservative Cllr John Lines said: ‘They should be ashamed of themselves.‘This was not the time or place to stage an anti-war protest – this man risked his life for his comrades. So much for respect: Two Muslim councillors refused to clap war hero(Offentlig sikkerhet går foran ytringsfrihet.Briter straffes for sjikane og rasehets på Twitter.)
EDL rally outside court hearing for bomb planners
English Defence League (EDL) held a demonstration outside the Old Bailey court in London on Thursday, where the trial of six Muslim men accused of planning bomb attacks at an EDL rally in 2012 was underway. EDL leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, who uses the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, arrived outside the court building with a group of supporters in order to ’see justice done’.
The six men who appeared for sentencing, Omar Mohammed Khan, Anzal Hussain, Mohammed Hasseen, Jewel Uddin, Mohammed Saud and Zohaib Ahmed from the West Midlands, had previously pleaded guilty to the charges against them for preparing an act of terrorism.
