Over one thousand Muslims gathered in the streets of London Tuesday in a massive show of force to demand an Islamic “caliphate” in Great Britain while chanting “Allah Akbar!”
A poet who addressed the crowds wrote the stirring lines for their demonstration:
We need a Caliph who will clean up these streets / Who will smack up armies and who will back beef [fighting]. / Backhand your missiles back to your land, that’s the plan. / World domination at hand. We can expand and take out these fools.
Traffic was blocked off in London’s Belgrave Square as the protest got underway, starting with a prayer session outside the Syrian Embassy. The building has sat empty since the British expelled the Syrian Ambassador in 2012.
Without a desire to assimilate, this is what the streets of New York or Chicago or Dubuque, Iowa, could look like. Donald Trump’s insistence that we thoroughly screen any incoming refugees would certainly reduce the chances of these bizarre demands from recent immigrants.
Can you imagine American Muslims by the thousands taking to the streets and demanding an Islamic Caliphate in the United States? It hasn’t happened yet and Trump wants to keep it that way.
The crowd in London waved Taliban flags and placards advocating the establishment of a caliphate. Breitbart couldn’t immediately ascertain who organized the demonstration.
Following prayers, a series of speakers addressed the crowd, talking for over an hour amidst constant interruption in the form of cheers of support.
Asim Qureshi, director of the Muslim rights group CAGE, which has been linked to extremism, laid the blame for the situation in Aleppo at America’s door, saying: “Never forget who is the problem here.
“When they say ‘look, America is the one who is going to come and help you in this’, then we have to remind them. Go back to the beginning of the war on terror when we were investigating cases of individuals being put on rendition flights to Syria where they had the soles of their feet beaten by the Syrian regime the moment they arrived in prison.
“And who sent them there? The Americans, the CIA.”
The speed at which the large gathering was drawn lies in stark contrast to a recent demonstration calling for the rapid implementation of Brexit. That event was widely publicised for a number of weeks on social media but only drew a few dozen people.
But Haitham al-Hadad, a Saudi-trained Salafist Muslim, congratulated last night’s crowd on drawing together to rapidly and in such large numbers. “This gathering today – in a matter of a few hours, hundreds of brothers and sisters coming together – is a sign of positivity and revival, and a sign of victory for Allah,” he said.
