A development much to be applauded. Meanwhile, Pamela Geller has more coverage of yesterday's events in Dudley, here, here and here.
"EDL Jewish Division Issues First Press Release," from the EDL, June 29 (thanks to Yuval):
We, the English Defence League Jewish Division, support the British Armed Forces, the IDF and the British people.
We are English, we love England, and we are committed to combat racism, fascism, anti-semitism, the biased media, and uninformed politicians.
We are here to fight for all people - Jews in England in particular - against attacks by pro-Islamic, anti-Jewish, anti-Israel media propaganda and lies, relating to Jews, Jewish culture and beliefs, and against blood-libels propagated by the left, Nazis and Muslims.
We are committed to waking up the sleeping Jewish press, e.g: The Jewish Chronicle, to the threat of Muslim attacks on Judaism, Zionism and to Muslim attempts to delegitimise Jews, the Jewish state of Israel and to force, by stealth and overt means, sharia law on England.
Our EDL units have gays, transgender, Black, Sikhs, Hindus, Jews and ex-Muslims (apostates) members. We are professionals of ALL classes!
We are the only organisation in the UK that demonstrates against Muslim violence and discrimination against women, such as forced marriages, underage marriage, female genital mutilation and honour killings. Not one so-called feminist has spoken out against these terrible things, preferring to collude with male Muslims and respect these appalling acts as "culture"!
Our Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/EnglishDefenceLeagueJewishDivision?ref=ts -by invitation only.
We are also connected to the wonderful English Defence Youth, who have their own website which, we contribute to.
Our fight is worldwide: against Muslim hegemony, polygamy, misogyny, sharia law, the building of any more mosques in the UK, racist attacks on non-Muslims (or kuffar as they call us!), homophobic attacks, Islamic no-go areas for British people, Muslim-only services paid for by the tax-payer, laws just for Muslims.
We repudiate preferential treatment for Islamic hate-speakers, terrorists and groups/organizations like IFE, Muslims against Crusaders, who, apart from being sponsored by terrorist organizations, proselytise against our armed forces and against the freedoms that the generations of English people have fought for!
This struggle is everyone's struggle, and remaining silent is no longer an option.
