Islamists See Opportunity in London Riots
Jihadist and Islamist commentators are advocating exploiting the rioting in England, both for stepping up operations and for increasing calls to spread Sharia law. Other jihadist posts are claiming that three Muslims were killed while trying to protect a mosque, portraying the acts as part of the war on Islam and a media cover-up of Muslim deaths.
A spokesman for the England-based International Shariah Movement posted a YouTube video about the riots, noting that they were the failure of democracy and Western values. "In reality, we can see the failure of the British government, we can see the failure of the British police, we can see the failure of the mayor, we can see the failure of the whole system of democracy, because… these are the fruits of democracy," the spokesman said.
