First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for the Muslims , and I did not speak out—because I was not a Muslim;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out.

Are connected to the illegal Al Muhajiroun who advocate Sharia law and are pro-Al Qaeda. I4UK also kicked off the fuss in England about the Danish cartoons which only helped circulate them more widely. Most people would never have seen them if he had not started on about it. That deliberate provocation is part of Choudary’s strategy (whatever that may be) is clear by the group’s antagonistic choice of name. He knows that the decision to march is an inflammatory one and that it could well be banned. If it goes ahead it will certainly be closely contained by the cops and massively opposed by local residents, ex-members of the armed forces, their families and their supporters. The BNP and the EDL have already announced their intentions. If it is banned then Choudary will have achieved a pretty unique media scoop by simply writing a letter. It is not necessary to be a fervent militarist to see that this march is 1/ stupid, 2/ deliberately calculated, 3/ publicity guaranteed and 4/ that it will end in tears.
Islam4UK The BNP and The EDL are both fascist organisations and totally anti working class, fight fascism weather religious or political.
It’s obvious that ANARCHIST are not fans of the BNP and other racist right-wing groups, but religious fascism also poses a threat to our hard-won liberties. March 4 Shari’ah will call for the full implementation of Shari’ah Law in the UK…
Anyone who opposes fascism should definitely*oppose this!
Isn’t it bad enough that the Labour government is rolling back basic liberties like the right to silence, due process of law, habeas corpus and the right not to be tortured – all in the name of security? Should we really abandon the little democracy we have left to a bunch of overbearing, religious zealots? Only a fascist would write something like this… “we have had enough of democracy and man-made law and the depravity of the British culture”
Anarchist Should believe wholeheartedly in religious tolerance, but the key word here is TOLERANCE. Groups like Islam4Uk will only ever damage the general perception people have of Islam, in much the same way that the BNP damage the reputation of tolerant*white, working class communities.
It states at http://www.islam4uk.com that Islam4UK is “a platform for the global front Al-Muhajiroun”, so who are Al-Muhajiroun?
Nafeez Ahmed addressed this question in his written evidence before the Parliamentary ‘Prevent’ Inquiry, http://nafeez.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-written-evidence-before.html and, in-a-nut-shell, he implies that they are having their strings pulled by western “intelligence” agencies, the sections that mention Al-Muhajiroun:
