EDL. Not an approved 14 words project.


As the far-right group marches in Leicester, details are emerging of growing contacts with extremist US groups in a 'war on Islamification"
Mark Townsend • The Guardian

The English Defence League, a far-right grouping aimed at combating the "Islamification" of British cities, has developed strong links with the American Tea Party movement.

Rabbi Nachum Shifren An Observer investigation has established that the EDL has made contact with anti-jihad groups within the Tea Party organisation and has invited a senior US rabbi and Tea Party activist to London this month. Rabbi Nachum Shifren, a regular speaker at Tea Party conventions, will speak about Sharia law and also discuss funding issues.

The league has also developed links with Pamela Geller, who was influential in the protests against plans to build an Islamic cultural centre near Ground Zero. Geller, darling of the Tea Party's growing anti-Islamic wing, is advocating an alliance with the EDL. The executive director of the Stop Islamisation of America organisation, she recently met EDL leaders in New York and has defended the group's actions, despite a recent violent march in Bradford.

Geller, who denies being anti-Muslim, said in one of her blogs: "I share the EDL's goals… We need to encourage rational, reasonable groups that oppose the Islamisation of the west."

Devin Burghart, vice-president of the Kansas-based Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights, said: "Geller is acting as the bridge between the EDL and the Tea Party. She plays an important role in bringing Islamophobia into the Tea Party. Her stature has increased substantially inside the Tea Party ranks after the Ground Zero mosque controversy. She has gained a lot of credibility with that stuff."

Details of the EDL's broadening aspirations came as about 1,000 supporters yesterday gathered to demonstrate in Leicester, which has a significant Muslim population. Home secretary Theresa May banned marches in the city last week but the EDL said its protest would proceed, raising fears of violence. Parts of Leicester were cordoned off to separate a counter-protest from Unite Against Fascism. Officers from 13 forces were on hand to maintain order.

The Tea Party is expected to be an influential force in America's mid-term elections. Last month their candidate Christine O'Donnell romped to the Republican nomination in Delaware, following a stream of populist rightwing candidates who carry the movement's endorsement. Burghart says anti-Islamic tendencies have become far more marked in the grassroots organisation: "As we move farther and farther away from the Tea Party origins, that were ostensibly around debt and bail-outs, social issues like Islamophobia are replacing that anger, that vigour. The idea that there is a war between Islam and the west is becoming commonplace."

Another Tea Party-associated grouping, the International Civil Liberties Alliance, which campaigns against Sharia law, confirmed that EDL leaders have made "contacts with members of important organisations within the American counter-jihad movement". A statement said: "It seems now that America and Europe are acting as one, and united we can never fail."

With the Tea Party said to benefit from millions of dollars of funding from conservative foundations, experts warn an alliance between the EDL and extremist elements within the US movement could allow the English group to invest in wider recruitment and activism.

Shifren, a Californian senate candidate, said Britain's Jewish community should rally behind the EDL: "The Jewish community is paralysed with fear, exactly what most radical Muslim agitators want. The people of England are in the forefront of this war – and it is a war. One of the purposes of this visit is to put the kibosh on the notion in the Jewish community that they cannot co-operate with the EDL, which is rubbish."

The EDL's website relaunched briefly last week with new US links. Currently shut down for "maintenance", the site featured prominent links to a site called Atlas Shrugs, which is run by Geller, and another US-based site, Jihad Watch, which compiles negative news coverage of Islamic militancy.

In addition, two members of the EDL leadership, a British businessman called Alan Lake who is believed to fund the group and a man known by the alias Kinana, are regular contributors to web forum 4Freedoms. The forum claims to be "organising US activities" and has links to the anti-jihad group, American Congress for Truth, which in turn has supporters within the Tea Party.

Lake is also believed to have been in touch with a number of anti-Islamic Christian evangelical groups in the US. One posting by Lake on 4Freedoms warns that the UK of the future will start to fragment into Islamic enclaves. Lake, believed to be a principal bankroller of the EDL, which claims to be a peaceful, non-racist organisation, is understood to be keen on the possibility of setting up the UK equivalent of the Tea Party. At an event organised by the Taxpayers' Allliance last month, US Tea Party organisers outlined how the movement emerged last year, partly in protest at the US bank bail-out.

Those present included Freedom Works and the Cato Institute, one of the Tea Party's main backers. However, Simon Richards, director of the Gloucestershire-based Freedom Association, which is looking at developing a pseudo-Tea Party movement in the UK, said he was concerned the project could be hijacked by elements such as the EDL. Nick Lowles of anti-fascist organisation Searchlight said: "The EDL is an integral part of an international campaign against Islam. While some are fighting in a cultural and political arena, the EDL are taking it to the streets. The images of the EDL allegedly taking on Muslim fundamentalists on the streets of Britain is also delighting right wing religious organisations in US"

Now one wonders at the plans of groups like the APP and their friends at the Australian version of the EDL, the appropriately named ADL.

Why am I not surprised?

It's mental health Month, or week, at the moment. The Jew is always bangin' on about "Anti-semitism" as a mental illness and the psychiatric profession is infested with them, the implication of course being that they themselves are quintessentially sane and "righteous"... They feel themsleves to be "deemers" and redeemers of who is alright and who is snot. The reality is that the Jew has more blood on its delicate princessly hands, either directly or by proxy than any other idea...It prefers by proxy so as to avoid the inevitable ill repute that its works revealed would incur.....That's why they're always slithering around the place trying to goad others into doing its very dirty works to do with "repairing the world" ( to wickedness ?)

The religion of the Jew, a religion of codified entitlement and hatred of others is designed to elicit a gag response in others... and then feigns pain and whines when it gets what it wants and uses this feigned persecution to play with the good natures of those upon which it predates. It hates those who seek to understand it a libels them as "Anti-Semites" and "haters" as would D'Evil itself.

Do not collaborate with the Jew Englishmen. The schizoid Gollumesque Jew seeks your elimination, yet pretends to be your friend.....It Covetsssssssss.
Tolkien mentioned that the Jews were indeed a talented people, but did not allude to the nature of those talents.

Noachideous. said...

Here's one of them inciting another Gentile Fratricide. Let's see her debate the BnaiBrith on why the Jewish establishment advocate universal Multiculturalism for Europeans.

Remember this folks, it is a clearly enunciated goal of the 'Jew' to diasporise Gentile communities so as to destroy their vitality and holiness so that they are unable to exist....Your quiet, compliant and self induced euthanasia is appreciated by both of these slithering Jewish Medusas who sing tunes that sound so sweet to you bewildered and gullible ears.

So, sir. What do you suggest? If European Whites don't stand for their culture and Christianity, we shall be overrun by Islam. Surely, God does not want that?

And if we DO stand up for our culture and Cult, then we are considered 'tools' of the Noachides?

You can't have your cake and eat it too. Tell us what you think we should do, and ENTER THE BATTLE yourself.

Only a coward stands on the sidelines.

Only a soon-to-be looser charges into a battle they don't understand.

Unless Europeans start having children they will be a minority on their ancestors' land no matter how hard they fight.

Unless Europeans remove the people who manipulate immigration policy first, any battle against endless streams of Muslim immigrants--who do have children--will be an exhausting, losing battle.

Throwing energy into an establishment-run 'opposition' movement like the tea party, or "English Defense League" is in no way standing up for Christian culture. If you can't detect the deception in a movement that rallies behind a 'Noahide Law' evangelist Chabad rabbi, failure is in your near future no matter what I say or do.

I don't want to live under Sharia Law or "Noahide Law" but I know that until Muslims have the influence in religion, politics, government and finance that the rabbis and their helpers do, there's absolutely no chance that Sharia law will be implemented in the West. The U.S. government and the Vatican have ALREADY, recognized 'Noahide Law.' What are you doing about that?

We need more law. said...

The same "Hate Crimes" law that protects the Noachidiotic impost from public scrutiny, is used to facilitate Dogging anywhere, anytime and even at school near you. Protecting the ability of the Dogger to Dog where it wants is more important to a Noachidiot that the securing the innocence of our children.

Consider that "solicitor" (of the profane)Barf will be eagerly Fight'nDemBack all of doze parents who object, hatefully, to doggin' and splatterdbottoms near their Goyisch Kiddies.

Police officers need to understand the source of the "law" and the ideology behind the "law" before decided to facilitate it. Like money, the "law" is completely amoral and can be used for noble or those clearly enunciated, Jewish purposes to do with purposeful engineered entropy of that which is.

Having murdered its friend for Lord Mauron's RingThing of Triksee Power, the MuchChosen afflicted Jew wrestles with its symbiotic conscience, what do about the abject poverty of its scatological moral offerings, and complete irrelevance in the context of the inevitable success of an unfiddled Gentile self determination. It hates the fact that the "Gentiles" also have abilities and gifts that appear to equal and all too often eclipse those of the spoiler "Jew"..
For the J Borg, this does not compute, so it must destroy the existential threat to its ritualistically self abusive and apparently ontological exceptionality......Then there will be only "The Jew", resplendent in its narcissistic magnificence as the existential manifestion of a bipedal "G_d".
