EDL invited to dialogue with IERA
IERA today has released an emergency press statement calling for official dialogue between the English Defence League and the Muslim community. The statement was prompted by the EDL's staged march in Luton today which claims to be anti-extremism. With placards like 'Muslim bombers off our street' and 'No more mosques', IERA invite the EDL to move away from ignorance to greater understanding of the Islamic faith. Furthermore they encourage muslim residents of Luton to exemplify prophetic patience and calm despite provocation.
