Every morning I like to check the days headlines to see what is going on in the world. I was shocked and repulsed by the reporting of the major tabloids this morning who covered the Luton troop parade protests yesterday.
I personally disagree with the protestors actions - although I begrudgingly accept their right to demonstrate. I thought their actions were vile and misdirected. These troops had fought bravely and sacrificed much for a cause they had no overall say in.
The fanning of anti-Islamic sentiment today is inexcusable. This protest was not the actions of Muslim extremists, but of misguided anti-war protestors. Framing the issue as radical Muslim attacks on 'our boys' is a horrific distortion that serves no one. Shame on them.
