UK Islamic Center Burned To The Ground By The EDL: TERRORIST LEADER Tommy Robinson REMAINS FREE (Video)
O’Reilly had the head of the racist EDL (English Defence League), Tommy Robinson, on his show last night. A strange thing stood out to me as i watched the interview from the gym, on the stationary bike, trying to keep focused on editing a paper for my doctoral program. One major topic was left unquestioned, unchallenged and unremarked upon. Mr. O’Reilly failed to address the Islamic centre in north London that has been destroyed by a fire in a clear-cut hate crime attack this week. What does this attack have to do with Robinson? The terrorists left a graffiti “calling card” as it were: the letters “EDL.”
The Met Police said the scene of the fire, which happened at the Al-Rahma Islamic Centre in Muswell Hill in the early hours, had the letters “EDL” sprayed on to the building, used by the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association.
MP Theresa Villiers said: “This kind of hate crime is absolutely despicable.”
The Conservative MP for Chipping Barnet said: “This is not just an attack on the Muslim community it is an attack on all of us and our values.
“We are a highly diverse multi-ethnic borough with excellent community cohesion in Barnet. We should under no circumstances allow violent extremists to divide us with this kind of outrage.”
BBC London correspondent Kurt Barling said the centre’s leaders had told him they had seen freshly sprayed graffiti on the building and they were concerned the fire was in reaction to the killing of a soldier in Woolwich.
The centre was not a mosque or “masjid” in the strict sense of the word, in that it was used for prayers, but as a community centre which was mainly used by children after school.
Abu Bakar Ali, from the centre, said: “The Somali community is in fear. We are all shocked about what has happened and we strongly condemn the attack on the centre. As you can see, the situation is a very serious one indeed.
“We are appalled and deeply saddened by the horrific and foolish act against a peaceful community. While no-one was thankfully physically hurt in the attack, the effects of this crime will be felt very deeply.”
Zakariya Mohamed, 22, who has been attending the centre for 13 years, said: “I’m heartbroken.
“I can only speak for myself but I feel this is an act of terrorism. The dictionary defines a terrorist as anybody that causes terror or intimidation with a racial agenda. I think our community will recover though. We don’t want to seem like we are defeated. I dream of being able to rebuild the centre even bigger and stronger.”
This raises the all-important question of WHY this attack is NOT being treated as “terrorism,” whereas if it had been committed by a Muslim against a Church or Christian center, there is no question how it would be portrayed and viewed.
Borough Ch Supt Adrian Usher said the Counter Terrorism Command Unit was investigating the incident because of their expertise, rather than it being terrorism related.
Ch Supt Usher said, “I have spoken to community leaders and assured them that a thorough investigation is being conducted.”
The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) said Muslims were now living in fear of a “wave of attacks”.
Massoud Shadjareh, chair of IHRC, said: “Muslims feel scared right now and it is completely understandable.
“Muslims have been physically attacked, mosques burnt down, cemeteries vandalised and social media is full of anti-Muslim hatred and violent threats towards Muslims. More needs to be done to protect the Muslim community.”
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “There is no place in an open, tolerant and diverse city like London for hate, for prejudice, for violence.”
He added: “Londoners will see this for what it is – cowardly, pathetic and utterly pointless.”
Labour’s shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said: “There is no place in Britain for violent extremist attacks or hate crimes against any faith or community.”
Let’s just hope that racist, terrorist British Europeans will be treated the way that Muslims would be treated in the same sort of situation… Meanwhile, Tommy Robinson does not seem to feel the slightest bit of heat in the wake of these terrorist attacks by his terrorist EDL organization. Why is the government protecting the EDL? Why does the media play softball with him? And perhaps most importantly, why has he himself not been arrested as the leader of this terrorist group? It is clear that if the EDL were a Muslim group setting fire to churches, their leader would not be free to walk the streets and do interviews on Fox News.
