Wear a poppy don't burn it: Muslim leaders urge followers to show respect for Remembrance Sunday
Daily Mail ^ | 3rd November 2013 | Leon Watson

Posted on 11/03/2013 11:29:15 AM PST by the scotsman

'Mosques will take the unprecedented step of urging British Muslims to 'wear the poppy, rather than burn it' this week in a bid to counter claims of being unpatriotic.

Poppy stalls will be set up at around the country leading up to Remembrance Sunday in a move backed by government ministers and the Royal British Legion.

It follows high-profile protests in the past by Muslim extremists, including those linked to the hate preacher Anjem Choudary, and the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside Woolwich barracks in south-east London.'

I like this line:

Britain's Islamic leaders fear that actions by a minority of extremists have led to a perception amongst some that Muslims are 'unpatriotic' or 'disloyal'.

..but what do the majority of extremists think?

Interesting coming from the guys in the golden crescent.

‘Smoke a poppy’, got it.

This was an old joke from years ago. You might already know this

It’s fake! - Moslems don’t appreciate anyone else except their own...they will do this until they become the majority...just time and patience...

Tobacco. The old joke was to call up a smoke shop and ask “do you have Prince Albert in a can?” When the proprietor confirmed that they do, you’d say “well you better let him out!”

We used to pretend we were from the electric company, and call random people with a survey of their electrical devices. The last question was “is your refrigerator running?” After the party on the other end would answer “yes”, we’d say “well if you want to eat dinner tonight, you better get up off your @$$ and catch it!” Sometimes we would substitute “TV”, and “watch Johnny Carson tonight”. The good old days !

Question:

Do you have Prince Albert in a can

Answer:

Yes I do

Then you better let him out...

The joke goes something like that, if I remember right.

Remembrance Day is a beautiful event in Great Britain. I usually only get to visit London but I'm so touched by the reverence that is accorded this day. I wish we had such an attitude in America - despite our love and support of our vets. To stop on the streets to remember all those who died in war is so very touching! Bless our pals in GB!

Many time we kids tried to ask the bowling alley if they had 10 pound balls. Never could we get through that entire question without cracking up and ruining it.

We used to “kind of” remember our vets in this country.

I remember memorizing the poem about “In Flanders field the poppies grow ...”

Our kids’ school invites veterans to n a memorial service on Nov. 11 but my dad lives too far away to participate.
