Muslims clash on London streets (video)
Anjem Choudary and his fellow protestors can be seen fighting with what was reported as other Muslim groups on London's Edgware Road
Protestors marching alongside Anjem Choudary, the famed Islamist extremist, clashed with others in London's Edgware Road earlier today.
A video begins with Choudary addressing the camera discussing the incarceration of an unnamed individual. The original video upload was entitled, "Muslims fight Muslims on the streets of London during a Syrian demonstration on the Edgware Road".
Choudary, who is famous for leading the now proscribed "Islam4UK" group as well as several other splinter organisations, led a march today from Regents Park Mosque which was due to end at the Syrian Embassy. Protestors marched with hard-line Salafist placards and flags, many of which read, "Support Jund Al Sham".
Flag-wielding demonstrators can be seen in the video (below) hitting at something or someone with their flagpoles, while many run around and track down one man who is shown bloodied after the initial clashes.
The protestors were marching in opposition to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who they are known to deplore for his Alawite religion. Protestors also took up the cause against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasrallah, who they deem as "Shia Enemies of Allah" for their Shi'ite Muslim backgrounds.
The protestors are thought to be hard-line Salafists, who have previously praised terrorism, called for shariah law in the UK, and regularly disturb ceremonies honouring British troops.
The Jund al Sham group that they were marching in support of is thought to be a relatively new a new Salafi jihadist group in Syria, which announced its formation in the Syrian city of Homs on December 23rd 2012.
At the beginning of the video, Choudary can be heard interupted in mid speech saying, "One second, one second. There's a fight taking place."
Police intervened in the scuffles, while several are thought to have been injured and can be seen bleeding in the video below.
