From the Daily Mail (via Andrew Bostom):

"Six arrested after burning on Koran on 9/11 `for the boys in Afghanistan' is posted online"

Excerpt:

In the film the gang are seen gathered round a copy of the Koran in the backyard of The Bugle pub in Leam Lane, Felling, Gateshead.  

Appearing with what seems to be tea towels wrapped around their heads, the men show the holy book to the camera before dousing it with fuel from a red can and lighting it.  

One man in a grey Adidas tracksuit and white trainers, who has a blue cloth wrapped around his head makes a series of obscene gestures towards the book as it burns.  

Laughing, the track-suited gang shouts 'This is for the boys in Afghanistan.  September 11, international burn a Koran day, for all the people of 9/11.  

'This is how we do it in Gateshead, right.'  

One man then attempts to add more fuel, but instead sets the plastic petrol can on fire.  

He then kicks the book across the yard, leaving a trail of flames which he is forced to hastily stamp out. ...

Police visited The Bugle last Wednesday after the video was posted online.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of stirring racial hatred, and have since been released on bail.  

What "race" would that be? (There is no Muslim "race.")

On Wednesday four more Gateshead men were arrested and bailed. None were charged.

Harassment toward a chilling effect seems to be enough for the time being.  The Bugle's barman goes on to describe what happened when the police came and closed the pub for hours.

'They took my mobile phones, some empty boxes the phones had been in, some CDs and DVDs, and all the tea towels.  

'They arrested me and another man and took us to the station. They were asking questions about who had been burning the book.'  

He claimed the pub has been targeted by the police because some customers had links to the English Defence League, a far-Right movement which protests against 'Muslim extremism'.  

The EDL protests Islamization, which is proceeding rapidly, as we can see from this story of British police enforcing Islamic laws, not British laws, against burning a book.

Around 30 men mounted a three-hour peaceful protest outside Gateshead Police  Station after the initial arrests were made.  

In a joint statement, Northumbria Police and Gateshead Council condemned the book burning.  

'The kind of behaviour displayed in this video is not at all representative of  our community as a whole,' said the spokesman.

'Our community is one of mutual respect and we continue to work together with community leaders, residents and people of all faiths and beliefs to maintain good community relations.'  

Police confirmed the arrests were in relation to burning the book, not for making, distributing or watching the video.  

'On Wednesday, September 22, four men from Gateshead were arrested on suspicion of stirring racial hatred,' a spokesman said.  

'The arrests followed the videotaped burning of what are believed to have been two Korans in Gateshead on September 11.  

'Two other men have previously been arrested and bailed in relation to this  incident.

Enquiries are ongoing.

Ominous.
