EDL holds far-right rally in Denmark to unite ‘anti-Islamic alliance’

The demonstration, which began with a moment of silence for the seven people who were killed by an al-Qaeda-inspired gunman in France, was held in Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city.
The Danish Defence League – an anti Muslim movement has organised the ‘European Counter-Jihad Meeting’.
The aim of the meeting was to set up a Continent-wide alliance of anti-Islamic organisations.
Many demonstrators covered their faces with scarves while others bought placards and posters.
Among the speakers was Tommy Robinson, the head of the English Defence League and has inspired offshoots in a number of European countries.
The defence leagues and other counter-jihadist groups that have sprung up in Europe in recent years to distance themselves from neo-Nazis and say they don’t accept racism or anti-Semitism.

  1. See the picture of the German and Israeli flags flying side by side. Yes, they certainly look like “far-right” extremists, don’t they?
    On the other hand just a few words about the arrests at what must have been a rowdy counter demonstration. There is undoubtedly a bias against these totally legal and mostly law abiding vaguely right wing groups within the media. To the best of my knowledge being right of centre has not actually been made illegal no matter how much the left would dearly love to. Being right wing does not make someone racist.
