Opinion by AAABTonto:
While perusing the web earlier I came across an article that claimed that leaders of EDL (English Defense League),Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, had been arrested in in the UK while on a walk for charity. The charity walk was hosted for a young cancer victim. Police had apparently warned them to avoid areas with mosques and faced arrest if they went ahead with a planned walk. Then, upon nearing Woolwich, southeast London, where Lee Rigby was hacked to death, an EDL-opponent attacked them–so police arrested Tommy and Kevin. Fortunately, the incident was captured by cameras …

I was not entirely familiar with the EDL and upon doing some further investigation I found a slanderous article that not only derided the leaders of the EDL, but also the characters of Pamella Geller and Robert Spencer. A portion of the article:
… Lennon’s arrest followed his illegal entry into the US last September to attend a conference organised by notorious Islam-hating Zionists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, whose “anti-Jihadist” organisation Stop Islamization of Our Nation–SION! – he is a board member.
EDL or IDL?
Lennon’s attendance at a Zionist-organised conference should come as no surprise, because the English Defence League have openly pledged loyalty to Israel. In an article posted on the EDL website and published on Geller’s ‘Atlas Shrugs’ blog in June 2011 , Lennon made his devotion to the Jewish state perfectly clear:
“One of the fundamental beliefs that this movement was built on was its support for Israel’s right to defend itself. In our first demonstrations, we went to Birmingham, and we flew the flag of Israel, the Star of David. In the first public speech I ever gave, I wore the Star of David in Leeds. The reason for this is because Israel is a shining star of democracy. If Israel falls, we all fall.” …
Not only have they slandered Geller and Spencer, the UK has banned them from entering the country!
A bridge too far: Leftist writers argue that Spencer and Geller should be admitted into the UK
It is quite apparent that the British media, indeed the British government, is more concerned with political correctness than with the sovereignty of their own nation. They are more interested in placating and appeasing the Islamists than preventing the collapse of their very existence. The antisemitism and hatred of Christians is blatantly obvious. I couldn’t count the number of times they derided Zionists and touted “neocons” as the origin of all evil all in the face of increasing Islamic violence within their own country!

Finally, I would ask you Americans out there in the blogosphere to ask yourselves a question. Do you think that is possible that this kind of irrationality could happen here in the United States? Well, you are too late, because it’s already happening. David Wood and Nabeel Qureshi have already experienced this kind of treatment right here in the heart of Michigan:
