The Religion of Peace. I think not.

Just a few snippets about the incident in Luton concerning Baroness Warsi.

Yesterday, Baroness Warsi said there were only about 'seven, eight or maybe ten' protesters who did not represent the true feelings of the thousands of moderate Muslims in the town.

After all, it was in Luton in March that a similar group of young Islamic protesters shouted obscenities at members of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment taking part in an Afghan war homecoming parade.
Although the majority of Muslims lead decent, peaceful lives, there have been incidents which reveal tensions. When a Mecca Bingo Hall opened, its windows were smashed after some Muslims claimed the neon 'Mecca' sign insulted their religion because it associated the name of their holy city with gambling.

Advertising hoardings featuring women deemed to be showing too much flesh have also been defaced.

And more

Over the past 18 months or so, around 30 non-Muslim homes have been attacked. One white couple in their 80s had bricks hurled through their front window. A West Indian woman in her 70s was watching TV when a metal beer keg crashed through her bay window.

And exporting their hate abroad.

In 2001, two British Muslim men from Luton were killed fighting with the Taliban in Afghanistan.*
It's going to be a while before someone sorts this out

Six years later, one of the militants convicted of plotting to blow up the Bluewater shopping centre came from Luton.
Fat lot of good all those security cameras did then.
And the 7/7 London bombers congregated at the town's station before heading to King's Cross.

What are the police doing there? Not very much by the look of it.

Read the full story here.

*One happy ending then
