While the Muhammad Cartoon Rage protestors were sentenced, their niqabbed supporters outside demonstrated their respect for British law.
“Burkha-clad women brandish ‘police go to hell’ banners as Muslims are jailed for cartoon protest,” by Charlotte Gill for the Daily Mail (thanks to g.hadi.hater):
Four Muslim protesters have been jailed for a total of 22 years for inciting murder and racial hatred as dozens of their supporters chanted and brandished anti-Western placards outside court.
A group of women in burkas held up a sign “British police go to hell” as the men were sentenced for their role in a march against the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper.
The convicted quartet had called for British troops in Iraq to be brought home in body bags and demanded a “9/11 across Europe” at a 300-strong demonstration in central London last February.
The Common Serjeant of London, Judge Brian Barker, QC, said at the Old Bailey hearing: “Freedoms of speech and assembly have long been jealously guarded by our laws but with freedom comes respect and responsibility, none of which was demonstrated by you and the hardcore of your fellow protesters.”
The judge said the protest had been “threatening, hateful and uncompromising” and the four men had “whipped up a frenzy” and gone far beyond what was “acceptable and legal”.
Mizanur Rahman, a married father-of-one, demanded that the Mujahideen massacre coalition troops in Iraq, yelling: “We want to see them coming home in body bags. We want to see their blood running in the streets of Baghdad.”
Seems to me that statements like that might indicate that Mizanur Rahman doesn’t want to live in Britain at all. There is no need to compel him to stay.
