I recently wrote a blog asking the question Are the British Finally FED UP with Islam? This blog was in response to the recent pro-military demostrations prompted by the muslim led ANTI British military protests in Luton. Many British people had been outraged by the disrespect shown to the military by the muslim louts -in particular - the mocking of the fallen troops by the perpetually hate-filled muslim cleric, Anjem "Choudary.
The pro-military demonstration stood in stark contrast to both the Luton muslim protests and the earlier anti-semetic/anti-Israel protests in London - where thousands of people protested - "pelting the police with missiles and fireworks" and millions of pounds in damage was done to London businesses and properties. A paltry three protesters were arrested by the "treat them with kid gloves" retreating police.
Thus - in response to the Luton muslims - you had the much smaller group of approximately 300 -500 pro-British military demonstrators (described as a mob by the media) and not surprisingly the truncheon wielding police arrested 8 of their lot. Only two were ever charged with very minor offenses (one from a previous order). ZERO damage was inflicted by this "mob".
Once again we find the British military subjected to the insults and venomous, provoking shouts by muslims and the hijacking of another military homecoming parade - this one by 3 Commando.
3 Commando suffered more fatalities -in this past deployment - than any other brigade:
"The number of UK troops killed on operations in Afghanistan since 2001 stands at 169, after a soldier from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards was killed in an explosion in Helmand province on 19 June.
More than one in five of those have come from 3 Commando."
Thus - what should be another happy homecoming parade - with brave men and women having completed their admirable mission - of protecting the Afghani (muslim) people - and safely returned home - is marred (again) by malicious muslim rancor.
"They were caught up in some of the heaviest fighting seen by British troops since the Second World War as they held key positions, prepared for the arrival of U.S. troops, helped to maintain security for the elections and tackled the drugs trade."
Number of muslim and "permanent" protesters arrested = ZERO.
Number of British people 'Fed Up With Islam" = mushrooming!
It was supposed to be a show of thanks for the most battle-worn of all the troops.
But the march of 3 Commando from Buckingham Palace to Parliament was today hijacked by anti-war protesters who screamed abuse at them.
Five militants waving Iraqi flags accused the marines of 'genocide' and shouted 'How many have to die for your filthy little lie?' and 'Not in my name'.
3 Commando's march from Buckingham Palace to Parliament was marred by anti-war protesters, who shouted at the troops as they went past
As they screamed into a megaphone in an attempt to drown out the Royal Marines band, those watching clapped and cheered loudly to overcome them.
One protestor was restrained by police until the 120 servicemen and women had gone into the House of Commons, where they were met by Armed Forces Minister Bill Rammell and other dignitaries.
It was the only slight on what was a special day for 3 Commando, which has suffered more fatalities than any other Brigade on their last tour.
Some 33 troops died and and hundreds were injured on the gruelling six-month winter slog in the southern Helmand province.
Protesters were eventually drowned out by applause from others
Police moved the protesters away, but Scotland Yard said there were no arrests

3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines is the elite fighting force of the Royal Navy.
The 3,500-strong brigade is an amphibious rapid reaction force, highly trained for combat in extreme weather conditions and on difficult terrain.
On the last tour they were involved in operation Sond Chara, or Red Dagger, the biggest offensive since the Iraq invasion of 2003 which involved attacking insurgent strongholds near Nad-e-Ali in Helmand.
The troops also took part in operation Diesel, a raid on a Taliban drug factory in Upper Sangin Valley.
The number of UK troops killed on operations in Afghanistan since 2001 stands at 169, after a soldier from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards was killed in an explosion in Helmand province on 19 June.
More than one in five of those have come from 3 Commando.

Armed Forces minister Bill Rammell said: 'It is absolutely right that we honour the troops from 3 Commando in this way.
'I have seen first hand how committed and dedicated they are and we must thank them for all they have achieved in Afghanistan, particularly in controlling the narcotics trade and ensuring the elections were as secure as possible.'
A small crowd gathered outside Wellington barracks to cheer on the troops as they marched down Birdcage Walk, through Parliament Square and through the Carriage Gate to the Royal Marines Band
One young boy waved a union jack while others including tourists from Germany, the U.S. and Japan clapped and cheered.
Lance Corporal Frank Wyatt, 25, from Oxford, said the support made a difference.
He said: 'People need to appreciate what we're doing and the more they know about it the better.'
The demonstrators maintain a permanent presence in Parliament Square to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
Medical Assistant Roxanne Starsmeare, 23, from Taunton in Somerset, had just completed her first six-month tour of Afghanistan.
She said: 'For the last three months I was one of the front-line medics and treated everything from cut knees to troops who had been seriously injured, of which there were unfortunately a lot.
'It was hard work but I learned a lot and made some good friends. I think people are increasingly appreciating what we do an it's a real boost to know the country is behind you.'
Onlooker Sterling Lacey, 73, a retired teacher, said: 'It's the last we can do to show our gratitude for all they've been through.'
Last weekend some 30,000 people turned out to show support for the troops on Armed Forces Day. 3 Commando will be holding a day of remembrance for fallen colleagues in Exeter on Saturday, where they are based, and some 1,000 personnel from the Brigade are expected to attend.
The five who shouted abuse are protestors who maintain a constant presence in Parliament Square to demonstrate against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Scotland Yard said there were no arrests.
