    Who cares? It's Britain First, they're the scummiest of scum.
    erm because it reflects on a wider problem whether they are scum is irrelevant. Do you care about this country in any way or are just happy to see areas be 'ruled' by a Muslim community. They have a legal right to peaceful protest in a free country,

    Are you serious? They are PHYSICALLY blocking the entrance of the mosque, stop with your bigotry and lets be honest, racist crap.
    Believing in the right to protest and freedom of speech is racist?

    Watch the videos from other sides and you can see they are literally blocking the entrance and pushing people out of the way. You again are another idiot who watched one video (BF cut out 90min of a 100min video as for the 90 minutes they have to provoke and they cant show that because idiots like you wont watch).
    Do you have a link to a video from the other side?

    It's not that easy to see in the video, but it doesn't look like they are physically blocking the entrance, the establishing shot puts them between two entrances. If even they were, this is still no excuse to resort to violence or mobbing. The correct response would be to report an illegal protest.

    Actually i will say another thing; these members of Britain are unemployed and claiming benefits, whilst the "Immigrants" they so passionately hate are paying taxes to keep them alive. None of you warriors want to talk about that no??
    I cant find information on the occupation (or lack of) Britain First members, do you have a link?

    That's also a massive assumption on your part of the immigrants. Some are cheating the system, some are hard working members of society, just like everyone else.

    I don't support violence, I just think that they aren't 'out of the world' to want to harm someone who is mocking their religion. It's not as if they are going and attacking random people for no reason. These Muslims are humans, and they will get angry when people gather in masses to insult their beliefs.
    Being angry at someone (or a group) insulting your way of life, religion or ideology is perfectly understandable, acting out that anger in the form of violence is not acceptable.

    I dont think BF should be protesting as they do, or even agree with them. But they have a right to do so without being assaulted.

    no it is very very unlikely Christians would attack you. Islam as a religion is very intolerant to any criticism whereas most other religious groups are benign in nature,
    Christians in the UK wouldn't, as Christianity has lost a lot of influence and most of the Christian population here isn't at all devout.

    You will get more intolerance from Christians in conservative African countries and a sizeable number of them in the US as well. Like that group that "protested" outside of a mosque in Arizona and brought guns to intimidate Muslims. There were no violent clashes at that "protest", despite that this was what they were obviously aiming for.

    In the video, the lady is pissed at Muslims for calling Jesus "a mere prophet". That's not even close of an insult compared to "Taliban scum" or whatever other bigotry crap BF throw at Muslims. So I'm pretty sure if I went in front of the Church the leaders or followers of BF go to shouting out blatant insults against Jesus or Christians in general, there's a fair chance I may face violence.

    true enough but in those countries most people would say that Christianity is the native religion whereas Islam is an imported religion here. In my opinion it is a dangerous religion to encourage and we should stop wimping out of challenging it and not allow any more immigration from Muslim countries.

    very doubtful have you ever been to a church in this country? It is mostly old people not angry young men. Islam is conspicuous as a religion in being violent there are no other violent religions in this country responsible for any terrorism etc since maybe the IRA which was not really a religious thing

    1) Unfortunately not (I would find it but im revising maybe later however there is one on twitter (as you can clearly see in their own video many people are recording and one individual posted it online

    2) Again not saved on my computer but i have read in a previous thread someone put the link of their occupations (regardless these people do nothing its evident anyone with a half decent job does not have time to protest daily and post this kind of crap as they would most likely be sacked)

    3) It is a assumption - You are correct to some extent. However if you are telling me more immigrants cheat the system than the "native British" you are having a laugh. (Not the best example im fully aware) - Watch some of the so called documentaries and most are white british. However this is not a debate about who trashes the benefit system more, i was merely referring to a point which many would agree with - BF preach about hating the immigrants and want Britain to be white (lets keep this real) however they are more than happy to be treated by Muslim doctors and get their wage from hard working "immigrants" taxes.

    This whole group is ridiculous and yes it is racist - Hiding behind sub-topics does not make you less racist.

    The Lord's Resistance Army of Uganda kidnapped over 200 people last month.

    With the IRA it was as much to do with religion as it is with these Islamists groups. Religion is a useful tool for terrorist groups seeking support and legitimacy.

    Lol. That's a very nice counter arguement. So the Christians here aren't even devout but still use their religion to give rise to a reason to justify attacks...

    And I have been to a Church here. I've met with priests/reverends and I highly doubt they will condone this sort of action in Christianity. Did you see the reverend in the video condemning what BF are doing? Suddenly he's also made to look like the enemy. These aren't proper Christians but if I call their Son of God a prophet they get pissed enough to use it as a valid reason to make us an enemy.

    I don't know whether you're just being ignorant or just blind to the truth. Good night mate.

    racist zzz how can you be racist towards a religion? The guy who does a flying kick and tries to punch another person is not doing it because they are blocking the entrance also their violence is not acceptable
    Brilliant response. Just what i would expect from an idiot defending their racist views. Have you ever realised why they dont "live stream"? Have a think about why large parts of their videos are cut out. They spend HOURS instigating hatred and OBVIOUSLY provoke a reaction. If someone was to stand outside your house and push you away and hurl abuse you will walk away and buy them a cupcake will you? **** off with your ignorance. If the shoes were reversed - you would do the same. And dont refer to a religion of 1.2 billion as "their" grow up and get an education.

    And those Muslims tend to come from conservative countries, so their views are unlikely to change beca use they moved. Most of the Christians here don't have similar backgrounds. Albania (for an example) is a Muslim majority country but one of the least religious countries in the world. Muslims from over there would generally hold different views on religious issues to what some Muslims in countries with strict blasphemy laws would hold.

    Well, to a devout Christian it surely is. A devout Christian believes that Christ is God. To have Him relegated to a mere human would be hugely insulting to such a person.

    Their religion as in not my religion nor the majority of people in this country nor the dominant native religion. Also I didn't say that BF actions were good but the reaction of the Muslims is what I am interested in. Also they weren't provoked any more than I am by 7/7 lee rigby murder etc

    The people who committed 7/7 are dead, the people who did the Lee Rigby murder are in jail.

    Blame them for their actions, don't persecute all Muslims because some murderers happen to purport the same faith.

    I see your point. But we still have Christ in such an elevated position (a prophet is one of the greatest creations of God).

    But anyways, switch it around. We believe God has no Son, which Christians claim Christ to be. To call Christ God is even more wrong in the Islamic doctrine(Shirk). I would never think to use this as an excuse to attack Christians.

    And I wouldn't call Britain's First devout Christians regardless. The ones I've met (reverends and priests) aren't offended but instead disagree and respect these beliefs we have of Jesus. I'm sorry, but shouting out an obvious generalisation such as "Taliban scum" seems in no way respectable to me.

    I wasn't. if you read what I wrote I said I could use their deaths as an excuse to be violent but don't. Why are you so keen to excuse the violence of the Muslim men in the video (in the face of a peaceful protest) ?
