LONDON “PEACE” DEMONSTRATION PHOTOS TURN OUT TO BE PART OF GLOBAL INTERNET HOAX

FITSNews – April 30, 2007 – We were forwarded a number of photos the other day from a buddy of ours up in Canada. Well, not really. Turns out we actually don’t know anybody in Canada. But we know people who know people in Canada (if you know what we mean). Anyway, the photos (one of which is pictured above) are allegedly from a “Religion of Peace Demonstration” staged in London “recently,” and include such sayings as “Europe: Your 9/11 Is On The Way,” “Butcher Those Who Insult Islam,” and “Be Prepared For The Real Holocaust.”

Turns out the pictures are authentic enough, but the context behind the story is a hoax. The pictures were actually snapped back in February 2006 after a Danish newspaper enraged Muslims around the world by running ostensibly offensive cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. No such “Religion of Peace Demonstration” involving these Muslim protestors ever took place in London.

In related news, however, the e-mail Sic Willie received last week from an African empress claiming to have $90 million in non-sequential government bearer bonds tucked under her cleavage turned out to be real. Her name is Princess Imani Izzi of Zamunda and Sic Willie’s love for her is real too, people.

I hate to break this one to you, but those were taken at a London rally. If you read the story you linked to, you’d see that they rallied in front of a number of European embassies in London.

Michelle Malkin had coverage here with considerably more pictures. BBC covered it here. CNN covered the aftermath here. The YouTube video is here.

Oh by the way: Snopes calls this one TRUE

Was it called a “religion of Peace Demonstration”? Of course not. But that IS what Muslims call Islam – a “Religion of Peace”. And they most certainly were demonstrating. And holding those lovely signs…
