London Protest Part 2

Another anti-cartoon protest is planned for Saturday Feb 18th in London (so expect the hype to be kept up until then). More than 100,000 Muslims are expected to take part. Such a pity there wasn't a similar protest against the 7/7 terrorist attacks carried out by people who had apparently "hijacked" their religion. Shouldn't that have been something to get upset about?

Anyway, the protest is being organised because the Muslim Action Committee "said they needed to “channel” growing anger felt by communities across Britain that Muslims were being persecuted and made to feel like “second class citizens”."

Quite how a few cartoons published in Denmark, and never republished in Britain, makes British Muslims feel they are being persecuted and treated like second-class citizens is beyond me.
