TO Edinburgh, where the Scottish Defence League, scion of the EDL, have held a static rally outside the Scottish Parliament after the council denied permission for a full demonstration. Their shouting was met by a rival protest by anti-fascists. It can be hard to see which side is the least tolerant. The Socialist Worker signs demanded an end to Islamophobia. This is the SW that noted : “I would suggest that perhaps we should face it once and for all: the Jews were responsible for the killing of Jesus who, by the way, was himself a Palestinian Jew”, think Hezbollah are ok and   backed the bigoted Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt. Fair enough. It’s all about freedom of expression.

The other thing about the SDL  is that ther wer only about 60 of them. There wer around 300 on the Unite Against Fascism march.
