This is London: Flames of hate By Luke David
Muslim protesters today called for the bombing of New York in a demonstration outside the US embassy in London. There were threats of "another 9/11" from militants angry at reports of the desecration of the Koran by US troops in Iraq. Some among the crowd burned an effigy of Tony Blair on a crucifix and then set fire to a Union flag and a Stars and Stripes. Led by a man on a megaphone, they chanted, "USA watch your back, Osama is coming back" and "Kill, kill USA, kill, kill George Bush". A small detail of police watched as they shouted: "Bomb, bomb New York" and "George Bush, you will pay, with your blood, with your head." Demonstrators in Grosvenor Square, some with their faces covered with scarves, waved placards which included the message: "Desecrate today and see another 9/11 tomorrow."
