UK Guardian: Tommy Robinson is considered a rock star by European Activists


For daring to talk about Muslim immigrant crime, which the media censors, the EDL is accused of “exploiting” Muslim crime. Maybe if the media actually did their job, there would be nothing to exploit.

From UK Guardian…

The English Defence League (EDL) is exploiting concerns about sex-grooming gangs to fuel its anti-Islam agenda and help forge networks with far-right groups across Europe, according to a university report.

The EDL has used recent cases, such as that of nine Asian men jailed last year for grooming girls in Rochdale, to build support, King’s College London found.

Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens of KCL’s International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, one of the report’s authors, said: “The EDL has successfully exploited concerns about the sex-grooming gangs in the north of England, turning the issue into one of Islam versus the west.”

Tommy Robinson, the EDL’s leader, is considered a “rock star” by activists across Europe, Meleagrou-Hitchens said.

“They want him to help their own organisations to become like the EDL. There’s a danger that the UK will export this kind of vicious, far-right activism to the rest of the continent.”

The EDL and its partners have worsened community tensions and further promoted ideas that helped inspire the Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik, the report said. One theme used by the EDL to try to boost its support is that of rape allegedly committed by Muslim men as evidence of the “Islamisation” of the west.

“This ‘rape jihad’, as it has become known, is a significant concern for the EDL,” says Melagrou-Hitchens. “Interest has risen since revelations in the British media about the existence of sex-grooming gangs made up of Muslim men of south-Asian origin.”
