Pamela Geller’s EDL Ally Called for Execution of Political and Religious Leaders
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer have been unstinting in their support for the English Defence League, even after their thuggish neo-Nazi connections were exposed.
Here’s a report at the Guardian on EDL leader Alan Lake, and his online essay calling for the torture and execution of David Cameron and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
On 23 May 2010, Alan Lake posted on his 4 Freedoms website an article outlining his belief that “in 20 or 30 years the UK will start to fragment into Islamic enclaves”. He went on: “It’s time we decide… who we will force in the Islamic enclaves (and who we will execute if they sneak out.) By forcing these liberal twits into those enclaves, we will be sending them to their death at worst, and at best they and their families will be subjected to all the depredations, persecution and abuse that non-Muslims worldwide currently ‘enjoy’ in countries like Pakistan… It will be great to see them executed or tortured to death.”
Lake urged visitors to the site to contribute the names of people who should be sent to the Islamic enclaves and made three of his own suggestions. He suggested that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, should be a candidate on the grounds that he “approves of the creation and use of sharia courts”. David Cameron, he explained, should be included in the discussion “to help refine our criteria about who deserves to die at the hands of the Muslim overlords”. He also included Nick Clegg on the grounds that he is “such an angelic and pure person that he upholds various ‘human rights’ issues more important than plebeian matters of public safety”.
Soon after his posting, Lake removed the references to execution and torture. “I took it back after one day,” he said. “I said, ‘This doesn’t help.’ I’m not perfect, I will make mistakes. But the fundamental point of that piece is correct. I am holding people responsible for the consequences of their actions.”
