PRESS RELEASE: UK – Cameron endorses EDL’s ‘muscular liberalism’?

In language that has been more associated with the unleashing of violent  thugs by Mubarak on the streets of Cairo in recent days, David Cameron speaking at the Munich security conference in Germany wishes to promote a ‘more active muscular liberalism’ within Europe.  Are the EDL the attack dogs of Cameron’s more muscular liberalism?

Massoud Shadjareh, the chair of IHRC, said:

“David Cameron has taken the gloves off in his rhetoric of anti-Muslim hatred.  If there is violence from the EDL or others then all sections of society should hold Cameron to account for the incitement to violence.   His concern at the wind of change that is awakening the political conscience of the Muslims is the precise idea that he wishes to crush.  Has he not learnt anything from the end of days of Mubarak?  Colonialism of the political mind of people is unsustainable.”
