Britain First invaded an Islamic Bookshop in Birmingham and of course it went terribly

Britain First/Facebook

Britain First, on 14 April, published a video of Britain First's Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen "invading" an Islamic Bookshop in Birmingham, alongside the EDL's Tommy Robinson.

In the video the group, appearing to take their lead from a Daily Expressarticle, interrogate the owner and ask why he's selling extremist literature.

Prior to this, Golding tells the viewer, amid beeping walkie talkies from the party, who outnumber the bookshop clerk:

It’s completely Muslim round here, we’ve already had people screaming and shouting at us.

But we’ve come here because this shop was exposed in the newspapers as selling extremist literature, saying that Jews are evil, that homosexuals should be killed and saying jihad is fine.

We're right in the middle of a Muslim community here, it's very very hostile.

At one point, the clerk is asked whether his books promote Jihad.

While he answers that they do not, to his knowledge, Jayda Fransen slaps the merchandise on the shelves, and without reading or asking about them, declares:

Every single one of these books, every single one of these Koran's.

Paul Golding then lectures the store clerk:

You’re a disgrace, this whole bloody place is a disgrace. You should be shut down.

He then says he will come back and confront the clerk if he keeps selling the literature.

Britain First have travelled to Birmingham for this publicity stunt, having been banned in all mosques in England and Wales and from the town of Luton, a previous stomping ground for the far-right group.

The community, acted in support of the owner of the bookshop:

The Daily Expressarticle quoted the parenting guide's interpretation of 'Jihad' as depicted in the Koran, which is not a struggle of violence, but ideology:

They may be inspired to strive for the restoration of the glory of Islam and Muslims. Jihad of warfare is where all humans spend their energies to stop a tyrant from being oppressive, for example when a tyrant makes it difficult for people to fulfill the commands of Allah to propagate Islam. 

Tyrants must be subdued whether they rule in an Islamic or non-Islamic land, or whether they are on a battlefield.

It is the duty of Muslims to divert people from worshipping created things to the worship of the Almighty Allah alone.

Britain First call themselves a Christian organisation.

Exodus 21, verses seven to eight reads:

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.

If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.

Deuteronomy 25, verse 11 reads:

If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand.

Show her no pity.

Timothy 2, verse 12 reads:

I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

Romans 1, chapter 27 reads:

In the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another.

Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.

No old-world religion is free from the fact their texts were written thousands of years ago.

While Britain First tour Birmingham some villages are free of some idiots.
