Those luminaries from the Board of Deputies of British Jews decided that after 9-11’s demonstration of strength by Muslim fanatics on the streets of London, they would issue the following statement:
Board Statement: Board Speaks Out Against EDL and Extremism
As we have done so consistently in the past, the Board of Deputies of British Jews condemns unreservedly the EDL, their ideology and their actions. It is clear for all to see that the EDL are solely intent on causing divisions and mistrust between different groups in British society. When they wave Israeli flags at a rally or demonstration, they do so only to goad the Muslim community and to stir communal tensions. This, and everything that the EDL stands for, is utterly abhorrent. Equally sickening were the scenes of demonstrators attacking America and celebrating 9/11. All right thinking people should be repulsed by extremism from any quarter.
The EDL Jewish Division Response:
JDiv Speaks out about BDBJ and Extreme cowardice
As we have done so consistently in the past, the EDL Jewish Division condemns unreservedly the Board of Deputies of British Jews (BDBJ), their lack of spine and their astonishing inaction in the face of the massive rise of antisemitism coming squarely from Radical Islam in the UK.
It is clear for all to see that the BDBJ is solely intent on brown nosing their way to personal knighthoods especially if it means stepping on the backs of Jews forced to endure daily taunts and worse from out of control Muslim youth.
When they attack the EDL they do this solely to cement their place, begging for scraps from the table of the British political establishment. This and everything the BDBJ stand for is utterly abhorrent.
Equally sickening is the gross moral impotence of a group of Jews, unable and unwilling to realise that Muslims on the streets of London calling for the imposition of a fascist theocracy and end of the rule of Law and democracy bears absolutely no comparison with proud patriots who’s own inclusive brand of nationalism is a direct mirror to the spirit of inclusive Zionism that built Israel into the great hope it is for the Jewish people.
