    You have Muslims within the EDL? Your token "Muslim" Abdul is a man with learning disabilities who is used by the EDL as photo opportunities. Every time the EDL mentions Muslims at their protests they always say "ex-Muslim" do they have any actual practicising Muslims in the EDL? I'd like to speak to one."

BREAKING NEWS: EDL stages rooftop protest

First published in News

REPORTS are coming in that the English Defence League has occupied the rooftop of a derelict building in Dudley earmarked for a mammoth new mosque.

The group staged a daytime protest in the town on Easter Saturday to show their objection to the planned new place of worship - and almost immediately afterwards supporters said a return visit was already being planned.

Around 20 EDL members, with their faces covered, are reportedly involved in the protest, which has been advertised on the group's page on social networking site Facebook.

An eyewitness said: "They're waving England flags and blaring out Islamic music from a loud speaker."

The EDL's website says the protestors "have food and water to last them weeks, and a pa system to give speeches".

It adds: "I believe they even have a Playstation. They will be playing the call to prayer to let those who are not bothered by this mosque know what to look forward to."

Police and fire crews - however - have arrived at the scene and sealed off Hall Street in the hope of achieving a swift end to the protest.
