SICK Muslim extremists bombarded our soldiers with abuse at a homecoming parade today — calling them BUTCHERS and BABY KILLERS.
Violence erupted as more than 200 heroic members of the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment marched through a town centre after returning from Afghanistan to vile taunts and jibes.

A new group of fanatics — who call themselves Muslims Against the Crusades — branded our brave boys "the death squad" and chanted "go to hell".

Incredibly, the extremists were allowed to protest at the same time, and in the same street in Barking, Essex, as the soldiers' welcome home parade.

Trouble flared as they waved placards which read: "return of the butchers", "baby killers" and "what are you dying for?18k."

They chanted "wicked soldiers go to hell", "murderers, murderers" and "sharia for UK".

'Scum'

Riot police were forced to step in as they clashed with angry locals who draped themselves in England flags, belted out the national anthem and retaliated with chants of "scum" and "we pay your benefits".

Eggs, glass bottles and pork sausages were also thrown at the group of around 40 protesters.

The girlfriend of a brave Royal Anglian soldier who was killed in Afghanistan said the extremists' outrageous protest should have been banned.

Lance Corporal Scott Hardy, 26, from Chelmsford, Essex, was killed in an explosion near Musa Qala in March just two weeks before he was due to return home. He was one of five soldiers in the regiment to lose their lives.

His partner Charlene Byrne, 24, who works in a solicitors' office, was shocked to see the Muslim protesters at what should have been a heroes' welcome.

Disgusting

She said: "It's absolutely disgusting. I know this kind of thing has happened before but I don't understand how it has been allowed to happen again.

"They should have been banned from attending. They should never have been allowed to hijack this. If the Government knew what this group was planning they should have put a stop to it.

"It's terrible these extremists have got away with it. Obviously not everyone supports what's happening in Afghanistan, there are people who are very angry about it, but they shouldn't take it out on the soldiers."

She added: "The lads who go out to Afghanistan don't care about the politics, they care for each other and they are doing a very difficult job trying to help the people of their country.

"I feel so sorry for them for having to put up with this abuse. They were doing their jobs and deserved a real heroes' welcome.

"The Muslims Against Crusades are calling them cowardly but our lads are out there putting their lives at risk for their country. I don't think that's cowardly."

Head of the fanatics' group, Abu Assadullah, 20, said: "We are quite disgusted by the fact these murderers that raped our people are coming back and they are being honoured for doing something wrong.

"These people have been killing and raping and pillaging in Islamic countries and they should not be welcomed home. As Muslims, we wanted to make a stand."

He said: "The families of the soldiers are not the only ones with feelings. We also have feelings, our fellow Muslims are being butchered.

"Islam is not a violent religion but we will use violence if necessary to defend ourselves. Democracy is failing, that was clear as this year we had a hung parliament. Islam is the alternative.

"People in this country are very patriotic. They support Britain even if the country has done something wrong. We want to show that there is an alternative. Sharia law would provide an alternative, it would provide balance in the UK."

Disturbingly he added: "People say 'don't take it out on the soldiers, they are just doing their jobs'. But how it when Osama Bin Laden blows up a plane or a building he is a terrorist. It is not that he is just doing his job - this is a double standard. They are both killing."

The hour-long parade was delayed as the vile extremists clashed with members of the far-right English Defence League.

Moments after the soldiers passed tensions reached boiling point and they charged through a police barricade to exchange punches with the Muslim group.

Cops piled into the mob to separate them. One man was wrestled to the ground, handcuffed and led away as the police surrounded the extremists.

Assadullah claimed the officers were more "heavy handed" with his followers but onlookers were left stunned as police circled the fanatics protecting them from angry bystanders.

Dee McEvoy, 50, from Barking, stood in front of the protest group waving two union jack flags as the soldiers passed.

She said: "I'm here for the army and the British forces. The protesters are entitled to their opinion but they are taking it out on the wrong people. They should be taking it out on the Government. This is not the reception these boys and girls deserve."

In a video message on YouTube a Muslims Against the Crusades spokesman says the devastating 7/7 and 9/11 terrorist attacks were justified because of the Americans and British "occupying our lands, and going to rape, kill and murder".

Abu Amanah adds: "There is a battle taking place. What do you expect? When you throw a brick at somebody's house you should expect a brick thrown back at you.

"As long as you occupy our land and steal our resources and prevent us from implementing Islam we will stand up."

The extremists had earlier passed out leaflets featuring British soldiers along with a bloody puddle in the shape of a skull calling the troops "death squads". They called on Muslims to "rise up and condemn this sickening parade".

Barking and Dagenham Council leader Liam Smith wrote to Home Secretary Theresa May asking her to ban the protest fearing there would be violence. But his pleas were ignored.

Emily Penson-Clark took the day off work to watch the homecoming parade with her young daughter and parents.

She said: "I think the protesters are filth. I'm here to support our troops. They put their lives on the line for us.

"Our boys are out there dying for us, there's no comparison between this lot and our soldiers. We are losing our sons in Afghanistan, I took the day off work today, that's how important this is. It is so important to show our troops what we think of them."

The soldiers marched proudly through the town centre undaunted by the sickening abuse, with fixed bayonets and accompanied by the Minden Band.

Colonel of the Regiment and current NATO Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Sir John McColl, said: "The Vikings made considerable progress in Afghanistan of which they can be very proud; and as a result of their efforts, Helmand Province is a safer and more secure place.

"But it was not without the cost and they have lost five brave young men, with many more injured."
