Lionheart: English Defence League Protest October 31st, 2009

by Maggie at Maggie's Notebook

Take your pick of spellings: Anjem Choudry, Anjem Choudary, Anjem Choudhury or Ajum Choudhary. He is the scourge of freedom loving peoples in Britain. He is a British citizen and a jihadist working openly on the streets of London - trying to bring Islam to the West in a very final way. The members of the English Defence League (EDL) are protesting Choudry's influence in their beloved and non-Muslim country. See an English Defence League video about the protest below.

Anjem Choudary - Anjem Choudry

A protest demonstration against Choudry, extremist Islam and the country's Islam-appeasing, over-taxing authorities, is scheduled in Leeds on October 31st, 2009 at the Leeds City Square, 13.00 to 15.00 hours. The name of the protest is "Judgement Day."

The next thing you need to know is that a "fanatical group, Islam4UK, is also assembling on October 31st to push sharia law on the people of Britain:

10-19-09 Daily Express:

A RADICAL Muslim group sparked outrage last night as it launched a massive campaign to impose sharia law on Britain.

The fanatical group Islam4UK has ­announced plans to hold a potentially ­incendiary rally in London later this month.

And it is calling for a complete upheaval of the British legal system, its officials and ­legislation.
 So the English Defence League will also be there. Their website says they stand for:
(1) free speech, (2) democracy, (3) equality in law, and (4) cultural tolerance.
Choudry and Islam want no part of these principles. From EDL:
We also protest against individual Islamic fanatics like Anjem Choudary who has stated:

“Not being a Muslim is a crime against god”
“If you are a non-Muslim you are guilty”
“I must have hatred for everything which is non-Islam”

Source: BBC World.

Anjem Choudary has also stated that it is his aim to fly an Islamic flag over 10 Downing Street and to enforce Sharia law over our country. His hatred for freedom, democracy and our culture is clear to see.

Unfortunately others share Anjem Choudary’s view. Extremists like him, use their influence in the Islamic community to spread the seed of hatred among disillusioned Muslim youth.

For years we have looked to the government to resolve the direct and indirect causes of Islamic extremism in our country. They have failed us. And they have failed our troops who fight for our freedom from terrorism and tyranny.

Whilst British troops have been fighting and dying, your Members of Parliament have submitting inappropriate expense claims for duck islands, porn films and luxurious second homes. Their obscene behaviour had to be leaked to the press before some of them reluctantly repaid the money taken from tax-payers.

They have also bailed-out the fat-cats, the privileged few, in the City with hundreds of billions of pounds of tax-payers money whilst leaving 2.47 million British people to rot unemployed, or on unliveable wages.

In the absence of effective Government the English Defence League has been forced to rise up.

If you share the EDL’s values please attend the peaceful demonstration at Leeds City Square at 1pm on Saturday 31st October 2009.
 Choudry is a follower of Omar Bakri Mohammed who founded al-Muhajiroun, which Choudry now leads. Mohammed also founded Hizb ut-Tahrir. Hizb ut-Tahrir has already made inroads into the U.S. under the guise of "moderation." President Obama's head of Muslim Affairs, Dalia Mogahed, was interviewed on a British television show, Muslimah Dilemma on the Islam Channel on October 4th. Ms. Mogahed told the host of the show that she finds from her surveys that "the majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with shari'ah compliance." Only a small majority of women, said our President's advisor, associate Sharia law with oppression of woman.

Hizb ut-Tahrir attempted to hold a "Caliphate Planning Conference" at an Islamic school in Bridgeview, Ilinois, but the event was canceled after publicity, at least in the school; instead the group moved to the Hilton Oak Lawn in Oak Lawn, Illinois. The goal of Hizb ut-Tahrir:
In its self-description, Hizb-ut-Tahrir declares: "Its work is not educational, as it is not a school, nor is its work concerned with giving sermons and preaching. Rather its work is political, in which the thoughts and laws of Islam are presented in order to act upon them and to carry them so as to establish them in life's affairs and in the State."
According to Heritage Foundation researcher Ariel Cohen:
Hizb-ut-Tahrir is a "totalitarian organization, akin to a disciplined Marxist-Leninist party, in which internal dissent is neither encouraged nor tolerated." Candidates for membership undergo two years of indoctrination, becoming full members only after they "mel[t] with the Party."  Members belong to compartmentalized cells and know the identities of only the others in that cell. "When a critical mass of cells is achieved," writes Cohen, "according to its doctrine, Hizb may move to take over a country in preparation for the establishment of the Caliphate." Hizb-ut-Tahrir reportedly has cells in 40 or more nations.
We are following in the footsteps of Britain and we must wake up! Here's another lesson:

This from the TimesOnline 9-14-08:
ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.

Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.

It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The mistakes the Brits have made by allowing Islam to encroach on huge chunks of normal English life is astonishing. Perhaps the worst is allowing Muslim MEN further control over a British Muslim citizen, who may not want a Shari'ah court looking over them. What happens to a Muslim couple who are British citizens, attending a mosque but wanting to follow Western laws because they are lawfully living in the West?

More tidbits about Choudry:

From Discover the Networks:
October 2000, Choudary co-signed and issued a “Warning to All Jews…in the UK” that “if you support Israel financially, verbally or physically you will become part of the [Middle East] conflict.” Choudary, in other words, explicitly warned Jews in democratic Great Britain, the mother of parliaments, that if they opened their mouths in support of Israel, they risked being attacked in England by Islamist terrorists.
Speaking at a meeting in London, Anjem Choudary, right-hand man of exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed [his deported mentor], said: "It may be by pure conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state. We may never need to conquer it from the outside."
So how would this happen? Choudry tells us and notice his plan for the "flag of Sharia."
Mr Choudary then referred to Bakri’s notorious aim of flying the ‘flag of Sharia’ over Downing Street, claiming that this would happen by 2020 as 500 people a day were converting to Islam and laughing that Muslim families in places like Whitechapel and Bethnal Green in east London were having ‘10 or 12 children each’.

English Defence League Protest October 31, 2009 (video)

Just a note about the English Defence League: My friend Lionheart (Paul Ray) is a member of EDL. There are some who refer to the EDL as "far right," which I think is a good thing in these dire times. No marshmallow can stand before a hot fire. Nevertheless, if you see "far right" as skinheads, then EDL is not "far right." As I have watched Lionheart for a couple of years now, I see no violence. I see and hear the urging for peaceful and meaningful protests, which have sometimes not been allowed, although Muslim groups HAVE been allowed to protest returning troops from Iraq in a most despicable manner, as well as the British people and their values, in general.

Lionheart - Paul Ray

I pray for England. There are some very harsh times ahead for them if their leaders don't do something. Next stop: the U.S.


  1. Paul, I recently read a media alert from the BNP regarding the EDL who placed them into the paypacket of some ultra-facist group.

    My question is, what is your take on the BNP, particularly Nick Griffin?

    I'm an Aussie who visited England last year and had several conversations with many British people from various backgrounds who all had different takes on the BNP.

    Viewing from afar as I do, it is hard to judge the effect that the BNP may have on Britain as a whole. It seems to me that there is no other political party that is prepared to tackle the Islamists head on, indeed, the other main parties are responsible for the mess you now find yourselves in. And I guess on that line, how do you percieve the electorate at the moment with all the kerfuffle regarding the BBC's set up of Griffin on question time?

    If you would like to answer me via email please contact who will forward you my email address. Or comment here and I will revisit.

  2. Great post. I have also put up a posting on fousesquawk. October 31 bears watching.

  3. I am a simple American that has roots in England. We must rise up against this infection of our way of life and freedom. Our military in the U.S. has only 2500 of this faith why not free them to seek other employment. Oh yeah and our unemployment is just over 10.2% good luck to them.
