Anti-Islamist group draws fierce protests
by Stewart Bell
Police arrested several protesters outside a Toronto Jewish centre where the leader of the controversial English Defence League was speaking over the Internet to supporters on Tuesday night.
Demonstrators blocked the street in front of the Toronto Zionist Centre, shouting "EDL go to hell" and "neo-Nazi fascist thugs" until forced onto a sidewalk by police. An officer had to receive medical treatment after one of the protesters struck him in the stomach with a protest sign, said Sergeant Todd Jocko.
Up to four people were arrested but had not been charged as of press time last night. Eight officers on horseback were eventually brought in to control the small crowd.
