Today when I visited Fletcher's shop in Sunderland, there was a line up around the block. Local people, along with ones that had come a fair distance, came out to support this shopkeeper's right to criticize Islam and the funding of terrorism.
Unfortunately, football hooligans connected with the Celtic team threw a flare into the shop, broke windows, and forced us to shut it down.
(Many Celtic supporters have a history of supporting terrorism, first the IRA, and now Muslim terrorism. That's why we were targeted — because I speak out against Islamic violence.)
A sad end to an otherwise good day.
