Disgraceful scenes in Maidstone, Kent during the 2012 London Olympic games build up.As is customary before an Olympics the Olympic flame is taken on a tour of the host nation on route to the games opening ceremony. Providing the public adults and children alike a once in a lifetime chance to see the Olympic torch pass through where they live.
What should of been a special day for Anna Skora the chosen torch bearer to run with the flame through Maidstone, Kent rapidly soured as live on tv a crazed Muslim youth ran from the crowd and tried to grab the torch shouting Allahu Akbar in an attempt to spoil the day. Allahu Akbar which means Allah is great is a phrase often used by Muslims whilst commuting a bad deed to non Muslims in the name of their hate loving religion.A kind of war cry. Examples being a suicide bomber about to kill innocent people, the poppy burning Muslim scum who disrespected the British army and nation as a whole on remembrance day, or the Muslim army of Egypt as they fired upon and killed unarmed Coptic Christians.
Police arrested the Muslim, who deserves to be locked up for a good spell as he is a security risk. Personally i wouldnt of blamed the person carrying the torch he tried to take it from had acted in self defence and put the flame into his face and said allahu akbar that!!!
Yet another blatent example of Muslim disrespect to the people of Great Britain!!!!

A 17-year-old shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is Great’ – as he unsuccessfully tried to grab the Olympic torch during a stretch of the flame’s route through Maidstone towards Redhill.
Broadcast live on the BBC, the youth lunged from the crowd to try to take the torch from the hands of its bearer Anna Skora, but was swiftly bundled away by officers.

Ms Skora was about to hand over the torch to Graham White, a Surrey charity worker, when the teenager burst out of the crowd and tried to grab it.
He managed to get through the line of police officers escorting the torch as it headed through the town.
One of the officers at the back of the group swiftly grabbed hold of Ms Skora and the torch, guiding them to the opposite side of the road.

The incident happened as the torch was being taken into Gravesend on Friday morning.
Ms Skora was able to keep hold of the torch as the youth tried to wrestle it from her grasp, and security and police officers stepped in to protect the torch bearer and bundle away the youth.
The youth, from Gravesend, is currently being held in custody and the torch continued on its way without disruption, Kent Police said.
A Kent Police spokesman said: ‘At around 9.55am a man apparently attempted to take the Olympic Flame from a Torchbearer in Rochester Road.
‘The man, who is from Gravesend, was arrested within seconds and is now in the custody of Kent Police.
‘No one was injured in the incident and the Torch continued on its way without disruption.’

Meanwhile, two cruise liners have arrived at Royal Albert Dock to provide accommodation for Olympic workers throughout the Games.
The gigantic boats will station workers throughout the Games, as the influx of people has left little room in the capital.

Gigantic: The Braemer is one of two boats that will host workers in throughout the Games
The liners, named the Braemer and the Gemini, will host bus drivers and security staff and have a combined capacity of more than 2,000.
Traditionally, ships like the cruise liners docked on the shores of the Thames are used for holidaymakers, and it is sure to be an interesting place for the workers to retire to after their gruelling shifts at the Games.
More than 70,000 athletes and VIPs will travel to the capital, as well as the 500,000 tourists expected to arrive over the coming weeks.
