'They came from every generation and faith. But in bright Bank Holiday sunshine they united to pay their respects.

From the closest of relatives to complete strangers, thousands have visited the makeshift shrine near Woolwich Barracks, marking the scene where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed by cleaver-wielding fanatics last Wednesday.

His killers said they were acting in the name of Allah – but yesterday Muslims bowed their heads in prayer to honour the victim’s memory, and reject the vile hatred of those who butchered him in broad daylight.

Heads bowed and hands together, these men paid their respects to the soldier butchered in broad daylight by fanatics inspired by Al Qaeda.

Visitors came from across the country to see the scene for themselves. The corner of John Wilson Street and Artillery Place, last week stained with blood, is now covered with moving messages for Drummer Rigby and his family.

The word is “takiya” and it means it’s ok to lie to infidels.

I don’t believe this for a nano-second...

Any chance you can focus on the thousands of non-Muslims, the flowers, the whole scene?.
