Er, check that. They are protesting against counter-terrorism. And the Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner is already playing the dhimmi, apologizing to the Muslim community instead of saying: “If you acted on your professed moderation and contacted us about people teaching jihadist violence and plotting attacks, such raids would not be necessary.”
“Muslims protest at police treatment,” from the Telegraph, with thanks to Interested, who points out that if hundreds of Muslim demonstrators really do turn out for this, that will be “hundreds more than protested against the actions of their coreligionists on July 7.”
Hundreds of Muslim demonstrators are set to gather in east London to protest at being treated as “second-class citizens” following a controversial anti-terror raid.
One of Scotland Yard’s most senior officers appealed for calm ahead of the protest outside Forest Gate police station.
Andy Hayman, the Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner, said it was not the time for conflict and anger and urged all communities to pull together.
His words came after he apologised directly for the “disruption and inconvenience” caused when a house was raided in the hunt for a suspected chemical bomb last Friday….

Anjem Choudary, the former UK head of the Islamic group al-Muhajiroun, said hundreds could attend the protest which will be held after Friday prayers.
“The Muslim community today are treated as second class citizens,” he said.
“There is a shoot and ask questions later policy which has been facilitated by a whole raft of draconian laws.”…
Yes, it’s a regular police state. Of course, no one is forcing Mr. Choudary or his coreligionists to remain there.
