WATCH: (Scroll Down For Video) More than 1000 Muslims took to the streets of London Wednesday night chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and demanding a caliphate.
The street outside the (vacant) Syrian embassy in Belgrave Square was closed off as it filled with protesters and Islamic leaders chanting loudly and calling for America to be punished.
A poet invited to talk shouted: “We need a Caliph who will clean up these streets. Who will smack up armies and who will back beef [fighting].
“Backhand your missiles back to your land, that’s the plan.
“World domination at hand. We can expand and take out these fools.”
Lanes of traffic were blocked off in London’s Belgrave Square as the protest got underway at around 9pm GMT.
The crowd was largely segregated into men and women.
Asim Qureshi, director of the Muslim rights group CAGE, who once called Jihadi John ‘beautiful’, laid the blame for the situation in Aleppo at America’s door, saying: “Never forget who is the problem here.
“When they say ‘look, America is the one who is going to come and help you in this’, then we have to remind them. Go back to the beginning of the war on terror when we were investigating cases of individuals being put on rendition flights to Syria where they had the soles of their feet beaten by the Syrian regime the moment they arrived in prison.
“And who sent them there? The Americans, the CIA.”
