Tensions run high as a “Christian Patrol” armed with wooden crosses marches through the streets of a predominantly Muslim area in the U.K.
In a viral video members of the right-wing party Britain First are seen carrying crosses, handing out newspapers, and confronting local Muslims at Bury Park in Luton.
The video description provided by Britain First reads:
Bury Park in Luton is an area notorious for Islamic extremists, ISIS fanatics, hate preachers and terrorists.
It is perhaps the worst hotspot in the whole country for Islamists.
In response to the recent imprisonment of an ISIS supporter (who is from Bury Park) Britain First carried out a “Christian Patrol” along the High Street and encountered ferocious hostility from local Muslims.
What followed was a shocking look into the Islamisation of our beloved country.
Our activists were attacked and pelted with eggs. Verbal abuse was rife. Muslims claimed they have “taken over” Luton and the UK. This is the future of Britain.
Huffington Post reports the tense viral video showing Muslims and Christians clashing has been viewed over 15 million times on the Britain First Facebook page.
At one point in the video the Britain First marchers yell:
Reject the false Prophet Muhammad and follow the true savior of the world, Jesus Christ our Lord!Other Christians in the area spoke out against the Britain First protest, offering flowers to local Muslims in a show of solidarity.
This is not the first time the far-right group has targeted the Bury Park area. In June 2014 Britain First leader Paul Golding and other members were filmed storming into Luton Central Mosque and Bury Park Mosque to hand out leaflets and bibles, according to Luton Today.
IBT reports Britain First is notorious for aggressively confronting Muslims, patrolling London’s Brick Lane, entering mosques, and even tracking down controversial Muslim preacher Anjem Choudhary to his east London home before confronting him on his doorstep.
