Stephen Gash (red marked in picture), press spokesman of SIOE, was talking with PI about the incidents at the anti-Islam rally in Harrow in September 2009 and about the Islamisation of the UK. Violent Muslims managed to prevent an officially allowed demonstration on September 11th – another milestone on the road to Eurabia.
PI: Mister Gash, many thanks for giving us an interview concerning the incident in Harrow on 11 September 2009. The demonstration in Harrow was called off by the police. However, one hour before the demonstration was supposed to begin, it was fairly obvious that many of the Muslim counter-demonstrators were ready to use violence. Consequently, there would have been enough time to call for back up. But one hour later, there were not enough policemen to enable the implementation of your demonstration, which was approved by the authorities. Do you think that the authorities were really willing to let this demonstration happen?
Gash: No. I think it was intended from very early on to not allow the demonstration. The impression I had was that the police anticipated a counter-demonstration from Muslims and the so-called anti-fascists, so they put 550 police officers around the mosque. However, when the numbers of counter-demonstrators grew to over 1,000 the police decided not to allow the demonstration to go ahead. I heard afterwards that people were being turned back from the area, at the tube stations and roads leading to the mosque, just as in Brussels in 2007. I don’t think the number of our supporters would have been big, perhaps 60 – 100, but we are pretty sure about 60 were prevented from getting to the demo by the police.
It would have been difficult for police to mobilize enough officers within an hour and I doubt they could have come from other parts of London because that would have left certain parts of London with too few officers on a Friday night. Bringing in police from outside London would have taken longer than an hour.
Many counter-demonstrators (Muslims and Non-Muslims alike) were carrying signs with slogans such as “Stop the fascist BNP” and “Racists out”. However, the SIOE clearly dissociates itself from racism on its website: “Racism is the lowest form of human stupidity, (…)”. How does the SIOE deal with racists who are willing to attend demonstrations who are organised by the SIOE?
