Members of a banned Islamic hate group reportedly have plans to put up thousands posters around the UK advertising the season of giving as one of rape, promiscuity, abortion, crime and pedophilia. According to the Daily Mail, the groups hope their campaign will help "destroy Christmas" in the UK and convince more Britons to convert to Islam.
The posters have already made appearances in parts of London where Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick called them "extremely offensive" and demanded they be taken down.
The so-called "Evils of Christmas" read:
'On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD (sexually transmitted disease).
'On the second day debt, on the third rape, the fourth teenage pregnancies and then there was abortion.'
According to the posters, Christmas is also to responsible for paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs.
Another offence of Christmas, it proclaims, is 'claiming God has a son'.
The bottom of the poster declares: 'In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honour, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child.'
The group's organizer, 27-year-old Abu Rumaysah, once called for Sharia law in Britain, along with Anjem Choudary, the leader of a militant Islamic group called Islam4UK. The group was reportedly banned earlier this year after it threatened to protest at a veterans' memorial.
Mr Rumaysah told the Mail that he was unconcerned about offending Christians.
He said: 'Christmas is a lie and as Muslims it is our duty to attack it.
'But our main attack is on the fruits of Christmas, things like alcohol abuse and promiscuity that increase during Christmas and all the other evils these lead to such as abortion, domestic violence and crime.
'We hope that out campaign will make people realise that Islam is the only way to avoid this and convert.'
