'Youths' on the rampage!

...but don't expect LGF to even mention this 3 night campaign of violence which ended in a bombing. The 'youths' in question where white and the target was a Muslim owned dairy and its staff.

A Muslim-owned dairy has been targeted by youths over three nights in a campaign of harassment culminating in a petrol bombing, a worker said. The Medina in Windsor, Berkshire, has suffered at the hands of local youths who have been targeting staff for the past three nights, the unnamed worker claimed. He said the youths would gather in gangs of up to 30 and throw stones and hurl abuse at staff working at the dairy late at night.

Police have been patrolling the area since Monday when the attacks started, he said. But on Wednesday night an attacker riding a motorbike threw a home-made petrol bomb at the dairy's perimeter wall. The worker told the Press Association that police later found a stash of the bombs hidden around the corner from the firm, which is located on an industrial estate outside the town.
It would be interesting to see what reaction this story would've had if the victims had been Christian or Jewish and the 'youths' had Muslim backgrounds.

UPDATE: Charles has mentioned it now, announcing that 'Brits Clash with Muslims in Windsor'.....aren't British born Muslims British Charles? Do they have to be white and/or Christian to be British? Anyway, as usual Charles claims that the media are ignoring it. Which of course they aren't if he'd bothered to do a simple Google search.

Perhaps you would do well to view http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23369687-details/Race+clashes+hit+Windsor/article.do, which is an actual news report and is what Charles used for his commentary, as opposed to that islamophobia-watch blog you used. What's more, your quoted paragraphs do not seem to originate from the source you site, which draws its information from a completely isolated event.

1. The Islamophobia Watch site took the news story directly from the Press Association.

2. This Is London's story came out after the Press Association story.

3. The quoted paragraphs are indeed on Islamophobia Watch.

4. The firebombing of the Dairy was not an isolated event. It was part of an ongoing campaign by yobs against an Islamic business.

You might be interested to know that just prior to the 3 nights of violence a gang of 20 mosque/dairy attendees beat up a 15 year old boy and then attacked his mother and sister as they came to help him. That the police have said that no arrests are likely for the incident, because those thugs had their faces covered.

Maybe there is some kind of loose connection between beating up women and children and having your business firebombed.

The outbreak of disorder began after a mother and her daughter were set upon by a gang of 20 Asian youths armed with baseball bats, iron bars and pitchforks.

The shaven-headed thugs – all dressed in white robes – launched the attack after pouring out of a former office building which is being used as an unofficial mosque.

They attacked Karen Hayes, 46, and her 18-year-old daughter Emily before turning their weapons on the teenager’s car. The pair had gone to help after Karen’s 15-year-old son Sean and a friend were beaten up by the gang.


The question remains why 20 men rushed out of the dairy and attacked these people. Was it a spur of the moment attack or was it because the building was housing an unnofficial mosque (which the Express rightly points out later on was the beginning of troubles). While not defending the action of these men, questions have to be asked what kind of provocation these youths were undertaking, especially considering the reactions after the event and the discovery of a cache of arms and firebombs later on. It seems a little hard for most normal people to believe this 15 year old was just walking past when these office workers just pounced on him doesn't it?

Probably the teenagers were being right little sh*ts and disrespecting, but the proper response to this is to tell them to "bugger off" - not beat up the boys, the sister and mother.

There is strong resistance towards this mosque. Is that due to the locals being white racist yobs that hate all muslims on prejudice or the mosque followers being the kind to beat up women and children? Now considering that one of these things actually happened, I tend to go with the mosque being unwanted because of its followers.

Yes, 'bugger off' works so well against a chav these days. As MJ said, there's no excusing what these blokes did but it does seem to be an orchestrated campaign against the dairy for operating an unnofficial mosque. It's for the authorities to sort out (because what the dairy is doing is illegal, not for street punks and I suspect a certain amount of stirring from far right sources (the bomb factory found points towards them, especially considering recent developments elsewhere).

But to say the rioting kicked off because of the beating of the 15 year old is a tad off the mark. It started over the creation of an unofficial mosque. The first violence was a reaction to that.

Yes firebombing and rioting that is very strong.

Is that due to the locals being white racist yobs that hate all muslims on prejudice or the mosque followers being the kind to beat up women and children?

No, it because a small band of racist yobs were attacking the dairy because they turned a room into an unnofficial mosque. Not all the locals, just a small minority. Just like the small group of Muslim men who attacked the 15year old and his mother and sister are not representative of Muslims in general.

Now considering that one of these things actually happened, I tend to go with the mosque being unwanted because of its followers.

Your putting the cart before the horse, the dairy was attacked before the attack on the 15 year old. In fact the 15 year old was probably attacked because of this violence.

I cannot find reference to violence prior to the assualt, the three days of violence (attacks) occured after this assault. All that I can find happening beforehand was planning permission being denied for the construction of a mosque, because of local opposition. Subsequently this mosque was built illegally so gaining more vocal opposition, but without any violence been directed at the dairy.

It's for the authorities to sort out (because what the dairy is doing is illegal,...)

The authorities did not sort it out, then this youth and mother and sister were beaten. The authorities have failed to make any arrests for the assault.

Just like the small group of Muslim men who attacked the 15year old and his mother and sister are not representative of Muslims in general.

I agree. But they are representative of this "mosque". They are a bunch of thugs who have illegally set up a "chapter house" in an office block, no different than the Hells Angels except they use religion to appeal for synpathy.
