THIS mob are vile extremists and their views do not reflect Muslim beliefs.

They are abusing the religion to make political points.

The Koran teaches Muslims to value all human life, not just Muslim life, and advocating violence and killing is just wrong.

These people are from the margins and do not reflect mainstream Islam.

We should be proud of our servicemen and women, and respect those who have died doing their duty.

I have family members who were in the Army and fought against the Nazis - and I am very proud of what they did.

The risk is that these people who burned the poppy will turn society against Muslims. But most of us are as disgusted as everyone else.

If all they can muster in a country of 60million is a handful of sad characters, it demonstrates just how marginalised they are.
