As the clock struck 11am the Islamic protesters burned a model of a poppy and chanted 'British soldiers burn in hell'.
The protest, in Exhibition Road, near Hyde Park, involved about 50 people while about another 50 counter demonstrators had to be kept apart from the group by a line of police. Three men were arrested at the scene, two for public order offences and one for assaulting a police officer.
Asad Ullah, of Muslims Against Crusades, said: 'We are demonstrating because this day is a day of remembrance to remember every single fallen soldier, including those killed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
All these Muslim protesters should be rounded up and booted out of Britain whether they were born here or not, they should be offered a choice: The Bullet or the Boat. I also find it offensive that the EDL are running around with the Israeli symbol intergrated onto the English Flag. The EDL are in the main a bunch of ignorant muppets who although they don't realise it are supporting International Zionism or maybe their leadership are being financed and led by Israel which is even more disturbing.
