A mass demonstration of 100,000 Muslims will take place in London next weekend as anger continues over publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
The Muslim Action Committee, an umbrella group which claims to represent more than a million Muslims, said it would do as much as it could to prevent the ugly scenes seen last week when protesters carried placards issuing death threats and one man dressed as a suicide bomber.
But they 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".
Faiz Saddiqi, the committee convener, said: "It is a peaceful protest. We will not let it be hijacked by the fringe elements.
"It is a way of showing the depth of anger that Muslim communities feel about being continually insulted by the publication of these images."

Omar Bakri, dando una nueva lección de paz y tolerancia, exige la ejecución de los caricaturistas (via Jihad Watch
Omar Bakri Mohammed, the radical Muslim cleric, has said the cartoonist behind caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed that have sparked outrage across the Arab world should be tried and executed under Islamic law.
The cleric said the cartoonist had insulted Islam and must pay the price, as three people were killed during protests against the cartoons in Afghanistan.
"The insult has been established now by everybody, Muslim and non-Muslim, and everybody condemns the cartoonist and condemns the cartoon," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
"However, in Islam, God said, and the messenger Mohammed said, whoever insults a prophet, he must be punished and executed.
"This man should be put on trial and if it is proven to be executed."
Resumen: como me critican, que los maten. Ojo al razonamiento: como en el Islam (ley religiosa) dice que hay que castigar y ejecutar al que insulte al Profeta, hay que hacerlo. Consecuencia de que no entienden todavía la diferencia entre ley jurídica y ley moral, entre Derecho y Moral.
No me extraña que se caguen

Y, como no podía ser menos, el odio a USA ha hecho su aparición:
QALAT, Afghanistan - Police killed four people Wednesday as Afghans enraged over drawings of the Prophet Muhammad marched on a U.S. military base in a volatile southern province, directing their anger not against Europe but America.
The U.S. base was targeted because the United States "is the leader of Europe and the leading infidel in the world," said Sher Mohammed, a 40-year-old farmer who suffered a gunshot wound while taking part in the demonstration in the city of Qalat.
"They are all the enemy of Islam. They are occupiers in our country and must be driven out," Mohammed said.
Wednesday's violence began when hundreds of protesters tried to storm the U.S. base, said Ghulam Nabi Malakhail, a provincial police chief. When warning shots failed to deter them, police shot into the crowd, killing four and wounding 11, he said.
Flying rocks injured eight police and one Afghan soldier, he said....
Wednesday's riot erupted despite an appeal from Afghanistan's top Islamic organization, the Ulama Council, for an end to the violence.
Entonces, ¿qué pasa con los españoles en Afganistán? Porque aquí se dice que son "ocupantes/invasores". ¿Se manifestarán los del "No a la Guerra".
Pero no todos son iguales: algunos son razonables:
"Islam says it's all right to demonstrate but not to resort to violence. This must stop," senior cleric Mohammed Usman told The Associated Press. "We condemn the cartoons but this does not justify violence. These rioters are defaming the name of Islam."
TEHRAN, Feb 8 (Reuters) Demonstrators angered by European cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad and by London's hostility to Iran's nuclear programme pelted the British embassy in Tehran with stones today.
The crowd smashed several windows and chanted ''Death to Britain'' and ''We are willing to sacrifice our lives for the Prophet Mohammad''. Some of the protesters tried to charge the embassy's main gate, but a cordon of police drove them back.
''We are here to protest Britain's role in sending us to the UN Security Council. We must defend our right to nuclear technology,'' said protester Mohammad Ali, 32.
Y este manifestante lo ha dicho claro: NO ES POR LAS CARICATURAS, SI NO PORQUE LES HAN MANDADO AL CONSEJO DE SEGURIDAD. Me gusta cuando la gente dice la verdad.
Y otro clérigo "moderado", Al-Qaradawi
, de esos que se demonizan ellos solitos, simplemente con abrir la boca:
"The nation must rage in anger. It is told that Imam Al-Shafi' said: 'Whoever was angered and did not rage is a jackass.' We are not a nation of jackasses. We are not jackasses for riding, but lions that roar. We are lions that zealously protect their dens, and avenge affronts to their sanctities. We are not a nation of jackasses. We are a nation that should rage for the sake of Allah, His Prophet, and His book. We are the nation of Muhammad, and we must never accept the degradation of our religion. [...]
"We say to those Europeans: We can get by without you, but you cannot get by without us. We can get by without your products. We will buy from China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, from the Asian countries. We will say what King Faysal - may he rest in peace - said in 1973, in the days of the petroleum war. He said to them: We can get by without the petrol, and return to our days of yore. We will make do with milk and dates. We will drink the milk of our camels, and eat the dates from our palm trees. King Faysal said this when there was a threat to Arab honor. It is all the more true when there is a threat to our Islamic honor, to our prophets, and our religion."
Quien está enfadado y no da rienda suelta a su rabia es un cobarde. No somos cobardes, somos leones que rugen. Nosotros decimos a los europeos: podemos mantenermos sin vosotros, pero no podeis mantenernos sin nosotros. POdemos mantenernos sin vuestros productos. Compraremos (atención a la lista) de China, Japón, Corea, Taiwán, Hong Kong, Malasia, de los países asiáticos. Diremos lo que dijo el Rey Faisal -que descanse en paz-, en 1973, en los días de la guerra del petróleo
. Les dijo: podemos mantenernos sin el petróleo, y volver a los días antiguos.
