To give a bit of clarification on the Protocols story, John 'Snowy' Snow isn't technically an EDL leader. He was (he was in right at the start), but he's fallen out with the leadership, to the point of Yaxley-Lennon having sent round thugs to his house. He was also one of the people on the roof of the Mosque in Dudley.

The Infidels are a splinter group, who are hostile to the EDL leadership as well as being openly racist.

What's interesting in this is seeing what Jeff Marsh (of Casuals United) does- he's always had a foot in both camps, posting both EDL statements and guest posts from Snowy.

Yes, that's right. I should change the wording. I haven't delved into this, but people that have tell me that in facebook and so on, there is quite a bit of crossover between EDL and Infidel followers. Clearly, the Infidels cross over lines that the EDL don't, but I think the Infidels probably express more openly what most EDL people would like to say.

There's an amusing error in the JC piece - either Mark Gardner's gone over to the dark side or Jennifer Lipman put him there:

"Mark Gardner, from the Community Security Trust, said: "This latest development shows, yet again, why Jews should not be involved in such circles."

"They will destroy this movement if allowed to remain.""
