A statement has been made by the Council of Faiths in Luton over the recent fire bombing of the Islamic centre in Bury Park Luton.
They say, quote: 'So during this difficult and challenging time we strongly urge forces of moderation to remain strongly committed in searching for a sustainable peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
If the police arrested the Islamic militant group that is headed up by Sayful Islam, or gave them ASBOS from entering Luton town centre where people's families and children do their shopping on a daily basis then the community would find some sort of harmony in the aftermath of the hate that is aimed at them from the militant part of the local Islamic religion.
Until then it is everybody elses fault by the Islamic militants fault who have been the ones to provoke someone into action.
For every action there is a reaction so people should not forget that Bury Park took centre stage on the morning of 7/7 when they blew up our country and killed 52 people and injured over 700, or during the biggest anti-terror operation at that time 'Operation Crevice' where the bomb maker from Bury Park was wanting to try and obtain a dirty bomb from the Russian mafia, or more recently the disruption of our returning troops to the town.
If the police and local government listened to the concerns of the community and acted, then these types of events would not take place. Instead the community is ignored, and vilified as right wing extremists and fascists if they object to militant Islam in their midst, by those same people whose responsibility it is to uphold and protect the local society in which we live.
Do anything, but just do not upset the Islamic community seems to be the order of the day, even at the expense of those of us living in the wider community.
You try living around the Luton, Dunstable & Bedford area which is a known Al Qaeda stronghold in Great Britain.
The streets are awash with Afghani heroin and Al Qaeda terrorists!!!
Not a very nice environment to be bringing up our next generation in is it?
Whats life like on street level?
L&D Express: Council of Faiths 'shock' at arson attack

The statement said: 'We, the Luton Council of Faiths , a voluntary body of the Luton’s different faiths and cultures, are deeply shocked by the attack on the Islamic Centre in Bury Park area of Luton.
'We note with regret and extreme sadness that the extremist views and actions across ethnic and religious backgrounds are affecting people of Luton negatively.
'The sanctity of places of worship is an internationally accepted responsibility and as a faiths council we are extremely distressed at the way in which the Islamic Centre has been attacked as much as we were distressed when earlier the Quaker Centre called Friends Meeting House in Luton was broken into.
'So during this difficult and challenging time we strongly urge forces of moderation to remain strongly committed in searching for a sustainable peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
'We pledge our strong resolve to continue playing an active role in improving understanding and respect amongst the many religious and culturally diverse communities in the town.
