Daily Mail rapporterar om en demonstration som utfördes av en samling arga muslimer i samband med att två andra muslimer stod åtalade för att ha agerat ”hotfullt, oförskämt och förolämpande”.
Detta skriver Daily Mail:
The incident happened during a two-minute silence close to the Royal Albert Hall where the Remembrance Day service is traditionally held.
Haque, 30, of Bethnal Green, and Choudhury, 26, of Spitalfields, pleaded not guilty to the charge under the Public Order Act.
Simon Ray, prosecuting, said Haque and Choudhury were part of the Armistice Day demo by the group Muslims Against Crusades in Kensington Gore.
He said they were protesting before and throughout the two-minute silence to mark Britain’s war dead.
Shortly after the end of the silence the two men lit large pieces of red and black plastic which were designed to resemble poppies, the court heard.
Mr Ray said that both defendants had acted jointly in the burning of the poppies.
‘Muslims Against Crusades had gathered at the corner of Exhibition Road and Kensington Gore and on an opposite corner were members of the English Defence League,’ said Mr Ray.
‘The MAC protesters were carrying signs with slogans critical of Britain’s role in Afghanistan and used microphones to voice vehement criticism of the Armed Forces and those who supported them including allegations that British troops were rapists and murderers,’ he said.

Samtidigt planeras en islamprotest i Washington av en jihadist:
British extremist Anjem Choudary has announced that he will hold a protest outside the White House, calling on Muslims to establish Sharia law across America.
Last year, he led protesters in burning the American flag outside the U.S. embassy in London on September 11.
In an ABC chat show last October, he said: “one day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House.”
