article imageAl Qaeda, Palestinian flags fly in London protest

London - A video has just surfaced of a Pro-Palestine protest that snarled traffic in the Blackwell Tunnel underneath the river Thames in London.
The grainy, but still discernible video which was taken at some point last week shows a number of vehicles with the phrase "Free Gaza" and "#Gaza" painted on their side panelling.
The footage also shows a large number of Palestinian flags, as well as the disturbing presence of what appears to be a black, Al-Qaeda flag.

For those unfamiliar with it, the Black Standard has been become the symbolic banner of Islamic Jihadists for the past 14 years.
While few will have a problem with the Pro-Palestine protest — other than those caught in the midst of the traffic jam — the recurring presence of the Al-Qaeda banner in a city that was the victim of a massive terror attack less than a decade ago is cause for concern.
The greater London region boasts a Muslim population in excess of 500,000 while the overall Islamic population in England nears 3,000,000. Though the vast majority of these people abide dutifully by the rule of British law, there are pronounced pockets seeking to overthrow the established government to institute Sharia Law.
Footage of these pockets — some of which are show below — is widely available through online mediums including YouTube, LiveLeak and Vimeo.

With one of the largest European Muslim communities, the British government has remained generally tolerant of inciting speeches and aggressive protests in promotion of Sharia law, but with serious ideological conflicts including under-age marriage, opposition to freedom of speech and sex trafficking — coupled with sustained terrorist activities — elected officials will find it harder and harder to remain patiently silent.
In the meantime, the conflict in Israel rages on despite the protests in London and around the world.
