Racist EDL come to Aylesbury

On Saturday 1st May, the EDL – English Defence League – come to protest in Aylesbury against “Shariah Law” and “extremist” Muslims.

What we all know is that the EDL is largely made up of football hooligan thugs who can’t ply their trade at football grounds and have to find alternative sources of entertainment and so “protesting” on a Daily Mail driven agenda seems the easiest thing to do. The EDL are so repugnant that even everyone’s favourite hate-monger Nasty Nick Griffin spoke out against them as being a Zionist backed! Now, I don’t know about you but I just can’t tell the difference between what the EDL stand for and what the BNP stand for?

Here’s a video of the EDL “protest” in Birmingham, you can see from this video that they are extreme far right neo-Nazis, racist to the core, pig ignorant of the issues, unintelligent knuckle draggers.

After watching this video, I can’t imagine anyone with any decency or intelligence would support such a vile bunch of thugs and most decent people of any race would be repulsed by them.

Please note, if you are not from Aylesbury and you intend to come to Aylesbury to counter-demonstrate then the advice from the Aylesbury Muslim community is DO NOT COME! As a community we have decided that we will not be counter-demonstrating, we will allow them to come, spew their bile and leave. We do not want people to be drawn into provocation and violence, which is exactly what these bigots want… they say “Muslims are violent”, they then stir up trouble, it all kicks off and then they say “we came for a peaceful protest and look we told you these moozlims were violent”, what people don’t realise is that some of the EDL will join the counter demonstration and stir things up as agent provocateurs to get a reaction.  Stay at home or go take your family out for the day, DO NOT COME TO AYLESBURY. Please, please, get the word out to Luton, High Wycombe and other areas that surround Aylesbury that WE DO NOT want any outsiders, we want this to be a big anti-climax for the knuckle-draggers. Let us as Muslims, take the Prophetic high ground and conduct ourselves with dignity and honour. This is not to say that we are being cowardly, there is no benefit in counter-demonstrating and the best thing would be to ignore it all, let the dogs have their day. I just hope it all passes without serious incident.

An Oxford University Islamic Society exclusive ground-breaking conference with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Professor Tariq Ramadan.

The 26th of May will mark a defining moment in Western Muslim history, as the two foremost Muslim scholars will share an audience of politicians, policy makers, scholars, theologians, journalists, media representatives and a host of other figures who have an interest and influence in the highly topical field of Islamic Reform. The event will be followed by an attendance-by-invite-only networking event in the breathtaking Divinity School, the oldest teaching room in Oxford. Join us in this exclusive gathering in the Sheldonian Theatre, and be part of this historic gathering of thoughts and minds in the world’s foremost centre of knowledge and academic excellence.

The conference seeks to address: What is reform? What is legitimate reform? What are its spheres and remits? Why have reform movements been met with distrust and trepidation by the Muslim grass-roots? What roles, if any, should governments play in Islamic reform? And what are the challenges they face?

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf will be flying into Oxford exclusively for this conference, and thus it will be his only engagement in the UK. For more details on the event, the speakers and the venues, please visit: www.rethinkingislamicreform.co.uk
