Was Jesus a Muslim???
Gee, I thought he was Jewish!
RELIGIOUS tensions were raised in the centre of Wood Green at the weekend as Islamic activists set about trying to convince shoppers that "Jesus was a Muslim".
Police stepped in to calm the situation as bystanders were confronted with up to 70 activists aiming to give them a taste of a Britain under Shari'ah Islamic law.
The activists, who have held similar "roadshows" in south, east and west London, set up outside fashion chain H&M in Wood Green High Road on Saturday afternoon, but tensions were soon strained.
One onlooker said: "They unfurled this huge banner proclaiming that Jesus was a Muslim, which understandably raised some people's heckles.
"These people were slagging off Britain and trying to convert people to Islam. They were quite confrontational.
"The police moved in twice while I was there. They didn't take people away but they stepped in to calm them down."
A website publicising the roadshow, originally scheduled for July 4, said Wood Green had been chosen because of the "perpetual malaise" the community suffered - crime, fuel poverty and a high rate of mental health problems.
The activists intended to show how Shari'ah law would combat "gang crime, poverty and promiscuity" in the borough.
