UK: Syrian refugees targeted for violence by far right
Hard line activists post vile images of dead Syrian child and call for refugees to be massacred
12/9/2015- Sick far-right extremists are plotting violence against Syrian refugees heading for sanctuary in Britain. Days after the Government said 20,000 migrants could come here, a trail of hate has been traced from Hungary to the groups across the UK. A source said: “These people eat, sleep and breathe racism. “To them, mass immigration on the scale David Cameron has signed up to is like a red rag to a bull. They are highly dangerous.” One group, Misanthropic Division, posted a digitally altered version of the shocking photo of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi washed up on a beach. Trawling vile websites, our investigators found a Europe-wide movement called Blood and Honour, an umbrella organisation for British racist groups such as the National Front and National Action. A source said: “They talk online and at meetings about killing non-whites. “The groups exists solely to promote hatred and violence towards them.”
Our investigators also tracked down a UK rock band with links to Blood and Honour. Redneck 28 have played at many of the group’s rallies and can be seen in photographs giving Nazi salutes. At one rally they were photographed with two people in Ku Klux Klan robes. Blood and Honour caused outrage last month when it staged an Adolf Hitler bus tour from Budapest in Hungary to his birthplace in Austria. One Hungarian-based activist, Tompos Von Wewelsburg, called for Syrians to be massacred. Alongside a mocked-up picture of a dinghy being fired on by a warship, he wrote: “Invaders are not welcome.” German expert Dr Fabian Virchow told a parliamentary inquiry Blood and Honour was linked to the notorious National Socialist Underground group. NSU’s last member is facing trial for killing 10 migrants.
Blood and Honour activists in the Czech Republic have been charged with attempted murder following arson attacks on ethnic minorities. There are now fears the group’s UK arm will focus its hatred on Syrians coming here. A UK intelligence source said: “To their friends these people may seem normal but they have a sinister side. Some seek out opportunities to victimise anyone they consider foreign.” Confirming their involvement in the far right, one Redneck 28 member said: “I’d be a fool to deny it, but I need my name left out of it. I need to keep myself protected.” Two other members refused to comment.
