At long last, that unicorn, that elusive beast, the moderate Muslim appears and opposes Chaudary. May they be joined by the hundreds of thousands more. It certainly is one way this thing can be solved.

 A group of Muslim protesters set fire to an American flag outside the US embassy in London during a minute’s silence to mark the moment that the first hijacked airliner hit the World Trade Center 10 years ago.

 A number of radical Islamic groups including Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) gathered outside the embassy on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

The group of around 100 men shouted “USA terrorists”, brandished anti-American placards and chanted through a loudhailer.

Several members of the Muslim groups made anti-American speeches following the flag burning.

One said: “You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.”

Another declared that America had been “defeated in Iraq and defeated in Afghanistan”.

Members of the group publicly burned a poppy on Armistice Day in a similar stunt.

However, a small opposing group of Muslims – some of whom had travelled hundreds of miles to rebut the extremists – staged a counter-demonstration nearby, holding up placards reading “Muslims Against Extremism” and “If You Want Sharia, Move To Saudi”.

Abdul Sallam, 41, who was waving a sign that read “Keep The Silence”, travelled down to London from his home in Glasgow to show the strength of his feelings.

He said: “I’m a Muslim. What they’re doing is bringing shame on all Muslims. This is not part of the teachings of Islam.

“Islam teaches you that when you see anything bad or evil, you should speak out against it.

“If the moderate Muslims all came out and spoke out, that would defeat them.

“I am proud to be British. I love my country. All these people are doing is breaking Britain apart.”

One of the Grosvenor Square memorial service attendees, who did not want to be named, said the protesters should be stopped from standing just across the road from the embassy and using a loud megaphone.

The man, whose cousin died in the terror attacks, said: “They shouldn’t be allowed to do it. It’s very disrespectful. It’s too loud.”

He added: “They can say what they want but not with the loudspeaker.”

Earlier a group of right-wing English Defence League protesters, who had gathered in response to the demonstration, were ordered to move on to accommodate the MAC supporters.

The 60-strong group of EDL supporters briefly scuffled with police as they were forced away from their original location to a different part of Grosvenor Square.

  1. I guess the “news” here is indeed that there was a counter-protest against the flag-burning Muslims. Wonderful!!! I don’t even feel sick anymore when I hear stories like this I only terribly for Britain. Islamists are mistaken if they think they’ll be as successful here in America.

  2. Right wing. Extreme Right wing. EXTREME RIGHT WING.

    That is the only response the MSM has to the grass roots working class EDL.

    It is apparent that the ruling class elite has a visceral hatred of the English working class.

  3. Being a muslim, I respect the people that died in the 9/11 attacks, with some victims also muslim. Respect for people is a basic teaching of Islam, these people can’t even do that and call them self true muslims. Shouting the odds out side the embassy makes you no more muslim than me sitting at home the events that took place ten years ago. Look closer to home and appreciate life before thinking of ‘Muslim domination’ which is not what Islam teaches. But then again you extremists are extremists for a reason, and people a muslim like me is normal, just like the people who died 10 years ago today.

  4. Ali well I hope with all my heart that you represent the ‘true Islam’. However for the moment I have to go with the Koran, which teaches nothing but Muslim domination of all others, and Islamic history and current Muslim controlled lands where Muslims treat non-Muslims with scathing violent contempt. While most Muslims likely do not participate in hateful and violent acts against the dhimmis and kuffar, these acts are not opposed by many, and those who do oppose it are often killed with great celebration as in Pakistan. So thanks for the input and I believe you are sincere. But your best wishes do not match scripture or reality at this time.

  5. A full video, including policeman in action against people that want to remember 9/11, the police didn’t take action against Anjem Choudary and friends.

  6. The left has control of the lamestream media and considers patriotism to be gauche, since the left also controls most of the political parties they all follow the party line.

  7. Note the black flags in the picture. It is a flag of war against un-believers. Apparently it contains the same words as the flag of Saudi Arabia. Something about the pagan moon god allah and his messenger. We really need to start burning these flags in counter protest. There is also apparently a version with black lettering on a white background.

  8. People got sick and tired of Islam in all forms, finally. Muslims made the mistake of confusing democracy with weakness. To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, let them stay on their side of the world and we’ll stay on ours. They chose to come here. Look at the condition of every muslim country. Sadly, so-called moderate muslims will have to do a lot more to make up for years of staying silent. They are complicit by their silence. MSM is not the people. Labels will not work on us anymore. The sleeper has awakened…(I am very ordinary.)
