Looks like Brigitte Gabriel‘s loony ACT! for America is seeking to cement ties with Islamophobes from across the pond, the trans-Atlantic Islamophobic Axis continues:

British Freedom Party links up with Brigitte Gabriel

On Thursday night, the Chairman of the newly formed British Freedom Party, Paul Weston, spoke to a group of New Yorkers at a meeting sponsored by Brigitte Gabriel's Act For America organization. Weston also said he came to warn America that what is happening in Britain today could happen in America in the not too distant future.

This meeting is going to be preceded by a joint event between BFP chairman Paul Weston and the Jewish Defense League (JDL).

British Freedom Party leader to speak at Jewish Defense League meeting in Toronto

Security will be tight on Monday as a controversial leader of a far-right British Freedom Party (BFP) talks to supporters in Toronto about his tough stand against immigration and spread of radical Islam. Toronto Police officers will be on hand as Paul Weston is expected to draw a large crowd at the Toronto Zionist Centre, on Marlee Ave.

The BFP was formed in Oct. 2010 and features a 20-point platform with a priority to "stop immigration to Britain from countries that promote the Muslim brotherhood." Other points of the platform include abolition of the human rights of foreign criminals and terrorists; deport dual nationality Islamists and illegal immigrants and stop or turn back all aspects of the Islamisation of Britain.

"We have witnessed the spread of fundamentalist Islam across Europe and are witnessing the same trend in North America," Weston stated in party literature.

Meir Weinstein, of the Jewish Defense League, an organizer of the event, said security will be high when Weston takes to the stage to bash immigration and Muslims. "We are very excited to have him (Weston) here," Weinstein said on Thursday. "His party wants more stringent rules for people coming from countries that promote the Muslim brotherhood."

He said police have been notified of the event and private security will be on hand to prevent possible disruptions by protestors. "There has been some chatter on the Internet about protests," Weinstein said. "We are not taking any chances."

He said Weston is following in the footsteps of powerful anti-Muslim politician Geert Wilders, of the Freedom Party of the Netherlands, who holds similar views. "There has to be a change to our immigration policy," Weinstein said on Thursday. "One of our goals is to stop the spread of Muslim fundamentalism."

Officials of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said Weston has no criminal convictions to bar him from entering the country.

Last year the JDL organised a meeting in solidarity with the English Defence League which was addressed by Stephen Yaxley-Lennon ("Tommy Robinson") by video link.

‘Mosque-busters' leaflet delivered by EDL activist in Purley

The man attempting to stir up fears over plans to build a mosque in Purley is a far-right activist and avid supporter of the woman accused of racially abusing people on a tram.

English Defence League member Frank Day proudly claims to have put leaflets through the doors of 600 homes in the area.

His "Does Croydon need a mosque here?" leaflet contains information about a proposal to build an Islamic centre at 5 Russell Hill Place.

It urges residents to fight the application in the belief it will cause traffic issues. But despite his apparent concerns over parking issues in Purley, Mr Day lives six miles away on the New Addington estate – and freely admits he would object to a mosque being built anywhere.

Resident and Purley and Woodcote Residents' Association member Andrew Frazer was one of those to have received a letter. He said:

"He (Mr Day) dropped a leaflet through the door and came back later after delivering some through other doors. He said, ‘we don't agree with it, we are dead against it, we want as many people to complain to Croydon Council as possible'. He visited twice and when he came back after the first time he said ‘if you want to find out more go to Mosque Busters by typing it into Google'."

We tracked Mr Day to his home in Arnhem Drive, which he shares with his 86-year-old mother. Here he told us that the information contained in his leaflets came directly from "Mosquebuster" Gavin Boby. Mr Boby is a professional planning consultant who has posted videos on the internet advising people how to defeat applications for Islamic places of worship.

Mr Day, who was arrested at an EDL rally in November, told the Advertiser that "they" (Muslims) were "taking over" and that "one mosque is too many". The 64-year-old added he had attended a court appearance of Emma West, who is accused of racially abusing people on a tram, to show his support.

Purley councillor Badsha Quadir has said he believes the leaflets are "racially motivated" and is seeking advice from police. He told theAdvertiser:

"My colleagues and I are concerned about this extremist leafleting. I understand residents are concerned. It is not for people to come from New Addington and say what should happen in Purley. I would not go to New Addington and comment on their amenities. The leaflet appears racially motivated and I will speak to the borough commander about this issue and see what he can do."

Police advised anyone concerned by the leaflets or the manner in which they were being given out to contact their local safer neighbourhood team on 020 8721 2467.
