Strange ...

When minister Dennis MacShane called for British Muslim leaders to use "clearer, stronger language" that there is no future for any Muslim cause anywhere in the world that supports the use of political violence, he was criticised by Muslims in his constituency, who wrote to Labour's NEC. The complaint was reported on national BBC news.

I can't find this report anywhere on BBC news.

Muslim protesters today called for the bombing of New York in a demonstration outside the US embassy in London.

There were threats of "another 9/11" from militants angry at reports of the desecration of the Koran by US troops in Iraq.

Some among the crowd burned an effigy of Tony Blair on a crucifix and then set fire to a Union flag and a Stars and Stripes.

Led by a man on a megaphone, they chanted, "USA watch your back, Osama is coming back" and "Kill, kill USA, kill, kill George Bush". A small detail of police watched as they shouted: "Bomb, bomb New York" and "George Bush, you will pay, with your blood, with your head."

But this is the really scary bit.

The protest was organised by groups including the Muslim Council for Britain and the Muslim Parliamentary Association of the UK.

Blimey - these are the moderates !!
