The English Defence League (EDL), a British far-right group opposing the "Islamification" of England and which is in contact with the US-based Tea Party organization, has invited Tea Party activist and senior Rabbi Nachum Shifren to speak about Sharia law in London this month, reported the Guardian Sunday. 

Shifren, who is running for the US senate in the upcoming midterm elections, said Britain's Jewish community should support the EDL.

"The Jewish community is paralyzed with fear, exactly what most radical Muslim agitators want.The people of England are in the forefront of this war – and it is a war. One of the purposes of this visit is to put the kibosh on the notion in the Jewish community that they cannot co-operate with the EDL, which is rubbish," he said.
