UPDATE: The Mail on Sunday has apologized for this story, even while saying that they don’t believe it was inaccurate or misleading. The Mail “intended no disrespect to the Muslim religion.”
All the appeasement, all the pandering, all the accommodation, all the bowing before Islamic supremacists, all the hounding and demonization of foes of jihad terror, and this is what the British government gets for it. One might almost get the idea that the Muslims in Shadwell know that British authorities are weak, and have contempt for them.
“Welcome to East London: Muslim gang slashes tyres of immigration-raid van before officers showered with eggs from high-rise,” by Michael Powell, The Mail on Sunday, July 26, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A gang of Muslim youths launched an astonishing attack on vans being used for an immigration raid – in the week David Cameron called upon the Muslim community to ‘support the British way of life’.
In the ‘disturbing’ incident in East London last week, three vans marked ‘Immigration Enforcement’ and an unmarked silver car were badly vandalised.
More than a dozen officials arrived in Shadwell on Wednesday to round up three suspected illegal Bangladeshi immigrants from a shop. They returned to their Home Office vehicles in the next street to find the vans’ tyres had been sliced open and the paintwork scratched. The officers were then pelted with eggs before police were called.
Two days earlier, the Prime Minister made a landmark speech appealing for support from the Muslim community in the effort to combat extremism.
One witness said: ‘I saw about five or six youths come out of nowhere and run towards the immigration vans. They had kitchen knives in their hands and they slashed the tyres and scratched the bodywork.
‘It all happened very quickly, then they ran off.
‘I think they were local Muslim hoodies just doing a prank, but it’s not funny. It’s the sort of thing that will cause this area problems now.’…
Nah. British officials will probably just shower the area with cash to cure its “extremism.”
