The Jerusalem Post had a brief Reuters report on the European gathering of counter-Jihadists in the Danish city of Aarhus, today. The gathering included contingents of Bulgarian, Danish, French, German, English Norwegian, Swedish and Polish Defense Leagues. See the program below.
EDL leader “Tommy Robinson” interviewed at the gathering of 200 European counter-jihadists said “this is the start of an EU movement against fascist Islamism".
The Reuters report noted:
"We're not expecting big numbers in Aarhus," Stephen Lennon, the head of the EDL, one of the biggest groups behind the gathering, adding that a few hundred people would attend. "We hope it will be the start of a European movement that will continue to grow."
The EDL, which claims to have thousands of members, says its mission is "to protect the inalienable rights of all people to protest against radical Islam’s encroachment into the lives of non-Muslims."
The gathering was assaulted by a contingent of black clad ‘anti-fascists’ and immigrants using building blocks. The Danish police arrested 82 protesters of the European Counter-jihadists, as reported by Politiken.DK and the Arioso blog.

Tundra Tabloids, Ariosa and Urisposten had reports, video interviews and pictures from the Aarhus event. Prominent in the “anti-fascist protest groups were the Soviet era hammer and sickle red flags and immigrant protesters, one was caught in a photo wearing a ‘hoodie’ emblazoned with “Soldiers of Allah”.

These attacks by so-called anti-fascist groups on the Counter-Jihadists at the Aarhus gathering are indicative that the rise of this trans-Europe movement has touched a nerve in the opposition alliance of European leftists and Islamic advocates.
Watch this Danish interview with a member of the German Defense League and supporter of the EDL and note his comments about the large counter-demonstration.
One commenter on the Tundra Tabloids website noted:
