In Britain, Police Arrest Twitter And Facebook Users If They Make Anti-Muslim Statements

British police are arresting people in the middle of the night if they have made racist or anti-Muslim comments on Twitter following the murder of a soldier by two Muslims in Woolwich, London.

Three men have so far been taken into custody for using Twitter and Facebook to criticize Muslims.

In the Woolwich attack, Lee Rigby, a drummer in the Royal Regiment of Fusliers, was run down in a car and then hacked and stabbed to death by two men with knives and a cleaver. They told a man video recording the scene that it was vengeance for the killings of Muslims by the British Army.

One man has been charged with "malicious communications" on Facebook, the Daily Mail reports.

Two others have been arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. The police are now arresting people based on mere speech in social media, a detective said in a statement to the press:

'The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue.

'These comments were directed against a section of our community. Comments such as these are completely unacceptable and only cause more harm to our community in Bristol.

'People should stop and think about what they say on social media before making statements as the consequences could be serious.'

The arrests come at the behest of British Muslims, who fear a backlash against them following the death of Rigby, The New York Times says:

The police and Muslim groups have said that there have been anti-Muslim episodes in many parts of the country, the most common involving derogatory messages on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

A number of arrests have been made, with criminal charges being leveled in some cases under laws against inciting racial or religious hatred, and Muslim community leaders have reported rising concern among the estimated 2.5 million Muslims in Britain.

Two men were detained in the middle of the night after they expressed anger at Muslims on Twitter. The Independent quotes police as saying:

"We began inquiries into the comments and at around 3.20am two men, aged 23 and 22, were detained at two addresses in Bristol.

"The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue."

(Notes: Many Hungarian and Eastern European citizens still remember the bloody 50’ when Stalinist secret police arrested and kidnapped “undesirable” citizens in the middle of the night and put them on show trial. Back then, it was enough if someone recited an innocent joke about the system to land in jail. That time is fast approaching again, but this time to the west that has already decided to commit a collective cultural suicide and removes itself from history. And mind you, we are only at the beginning of the process that no one can foresee how will end. It is not far fetched to say that soon, we might think of the Stalinist era as breath of fresh air compared to that might happen in the near future in the decadent west. And we might read rhymes from western European poets similar to what Hungarian Poet Tibor Tollas wrote in his jail cell after his arrest on fabricated charges during the communist takeover at the end of second world war.)

Bebádogoznak minden ablakot

Az életből csak ennyi fény maradt,
Csillagos ég, tenyérnyi napsugár.
Ezt vártuk nap-nap, homályos falak
Üregéből esténként-délután.
S elvették ezt is, a tenyérnyi napot:
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Tágult szemekkel kék tengerét látom
Nápolynak, s fénylő partjai felett
Még vár a Vezúv, pipál és a tájon
Barnára lesült boldog emberek.
Látjátok? Éjben élünk, mint vakok,
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Tízen fekszünk egy fullasztó szűk lyukba',
A szánk kapkodja be a levegőt,
Mint partra vetett halak kopoltyúja
Tátogunk némán – s érzed, nincs erőd
Szívni az étel s ürülék szagot:
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Az Alpeseknek fenyves illatából
Míg csokrot küld a hűs nyugati szél
És lelket öblít fenn a tiszta távol
S mosolygó hegyek hószaga kísér,
Itt tegnap társam tüdőbajt kapott,
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Csendet hasít a sétahajó kürtje.
A falon sikló leánykacagás
Nem visszhangzik már zengőn a fülünkbe
S az ezersípú nyár nem orgonáz.
Süket a cellánk, minden hang halott,
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Túl Barcelona kertjein szitálva
Egy barna asszony meleg hangja búg
És alkonyatba pendül a gitárja.
Hol táncolóktól tarka még az út;
S fülünkbe folynak az ólmos napok...
Bebádogoznak minden ablakot.

Tapintanánk a bársonyos egekbe,
Ujjunk hegyéből kiserken a vér.
Mint koporsóba, be vagyunk szegezve,
Csak daróc szúr, vagy poloska ha ér.
Simogatnánk a sugaras napot –
S bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Londonban bál van, sima termén siklik
A sok selyembe öltözött leány.
Puha hajuknak hamvassága izzik
Lágy bútoroknak tükrös hajnalán.
Nyugat táncol – tán végképp eladott?! ...
S bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Nyelvünket mosta friss tavasz zamatja
Most nyögve nyeljük nyirkos kortyait
Az alvadt bűznek, hol minden falatra
Émelygő gyomrod felfordulna itt.
De lenyeljük e végső falatot:
Bebádogoztak minden ablakot.

Az éhség marta testünket telt álom
Lakatja jól – és ínyenc ételek
Ízét kínálja Párizs – szinte látom,
Hogy kúszik el a neonfény felett
A Néma Rém – s nem lesz több hajnalod ...
Bebádogoznak minden ablakot!

A rádiók csak üvöltsék rekedten
A szabadságot s az ember jogát.
Itt érzi csak befalazott testem
A milliókkal Moszkva ostorát.
S Váctól Pekingig zúgják a rabok:
– Ha nem vigyáztok, az egész világon
Bebádogoznak minden ablakot!
