Far right political group will counter Muslims hate groups

The English Defence League, a far-right political organisation formed to oppose the spread of Islamism, Sharia law and Islamic extremism in England vows it will counter demonstrations by Islamic hate groups. Muslim extremists such as ‘Muslims Against Crusaders’ have been disrupting home-coming marches of British soldiers. The hate group also calls for the introduction of Sharia (Islamic law) in the UK.

Britain warns of rise in far-right violence

UK anti-Islam protest LONDON (Reuters) – A government minister said a recent rise in right-wing anti-Islamist militancy bore echoes of 1930s attempts by fascists to spread fear in Jewish areas of east London.

Communities Secretary John Denham said far right groups were deliberately trying to provoke ethnic minority groups into conflict in a bid to cause divisions within communities.

His comments came after members of the Stop Islamisation of Europe group were confronted by about 1,000 opponents outside a mosque in north London on Friday.
