The English Defence League are a racist, Islamophobic and Zionist organisation who have rioted in Luton, Dudley, Stoke, Bolton, Bradford, Newcastle...they have attacked Muslims including women and have desecrated Mosques. They have attempted to riot in London. The EDL held a "Freedom Of Speech" rally in support of Geert Wilders in London. They plan another demo in Holland on October 30th.
The English Defence League claim that they are "just against extremists" ie Anjem Choudary however anyone who has witnessed their protests will know that there has been little talk of Anjem Choudary if any at the rallies. There have been plenty of placards in support of Dutch politician Geert Wilders who is an extremist Zionist. He wants a complete ban on the Qur'an.
The EDL mottos are "We all need a Geert" and "We are all Geert Wilders" "I am Geert Wilders". Some in the EDL who see Geert Wilders as their saviour have copied his appearance, bleaching their hair to look like the extremist.
Extremist hate preacher Geert Wilders was banned from the UK but the ban was overturned. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geert_Wilders
The EDL plan to protest [riot] in Leicester October 9th.
