Maybe it’s because it will be just a fist-and-boot fight with the EDL, whereas any conflict with their native Islamists would be far worse. In other words, these Ajax football fans are cowards. They would never risk their lives against real fascism – Islamofascism. And to think about the trouble Holland is having, and has had, with Muslims and Islamists. Two of their politicians and one artist have been murdered for speaking out against Islam and Islamism. And yet they turn on the EDL. The EDL were probably outnumbered any way. Very brave!
When there’s a bigger more important fight on the horizon, football fans should unite. Firstly, they have united here in the UK. In Birmingham you have Aston Villa fans alongside Birmingham City fans fighting against our common enemies. On a national scale, we have Man U supporters battling alongside Man City fans… well, maybe not Man City fans, but Leeds United fans, etc.
Thus it is perspective and intelligence that football fans must show. Not a stupid commitment to small-scale petty grievances against other football fans. The game we’re playing now is too big for that.
