It now seems that it is illegal to walk through the area of Tower Hamlets in London if you don’t like Islam all that much.
Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll arrested in Tower Hamlets because they were. according the police ‘in a Muslim area.’ Shameful behavior on the part of the Metropolitan Police absolutely shameful.
Sky News said:
“Two English Defence League leaders have been arrested in London as they attempted to march to Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed in May.
Tommy Robinson shouted, “You are enforcing Sharia law”, at officers who held him on suspicion of obstructing police as he tried to enter the London borough of Tower Hamlets.”
Sky News reported Tommy Robinson as saying:
“They’re (police) saying it (Tower Hamlets) is a Muslim area but to me there is no Muslim area, there are just areas of my capital city that if I have to walk from A to B then you have to walk through.”
“Obviously I don’t want to get arrested and I don’t want to get in trouble so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”
“Scotland Yard said the conditions were imposed because of fears the march and the gathering would result in “serious public disorder” and it had warned that a breach would lead to arrest.
The Met said it had attempted to work with the EDL to facilitate the march and gathering and offered them two alternative routes that avoided the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, which is home to the East London Mosque.”
For those who do not know, the East London Mosque is an organisation that has consistently supported extremist preachers who call for the death or enslavement of Christians and Jews and the execution of gay people.
It doesn’t sound to me like the problem lies with Mr Robinson or Mr Carroll but with Islamic groups like the East London Mosque.
It is utterly disgusting to see the Met behaving in this way. They are not behaving at all like ‘our’ police, a police for all, but the enemies police, dedicated to making sure that nothing gets in the way of radical Islam.
