Muslims against Crusades banned

This was the "organisation" that burned the poppies last year, although under another guise. They are now illegal.I thought I would post this as news interest. Please let's be thankful & not bicker.


The organisation Muslims Against Crusades will be banned from
operating in the UK from midnight, the Home Secretary has said.

Theresa May said she was satisfied the group was "simply
another name for an organisation already proscribed under a number of names"
including Al Ghurabaa, The Saved Sect, Al Muhajiroun and Islam4UK.

"The organisation was proscribed in 2006 for glorifying
terrorism and we are clear it should not be able to continue these activities by
simply changing its name," she said.

Mrs May said on Thursday: "I have today laid an order which
will proscribe Muslims Against Crusades from midnight tonight.

"This means being a member of, or supporting the organisation,
will be a criminal offence."

Anjem Choudary, who describes himself as a press spokesman for
the extremist group, said the decision was a "bid by the Government to cover up
the truth".

He said he did not know if a "Hell for Heroes" demonstration
against Remembrance commemorations would now go ahead.

Responding to the Government's announcement, he said: "I think
it is an abject failure of democracy and it is a victory for Sharia Muslims. The
truth is something the Government would rather silence."

The demonstration was due to take place outside the Royal
Albert Hall, the same location where a poppy was burned last year.

No Muslims Against Crusades members were arrested in the
build-up to the announcement from Mrs May.
