A banned Islamic hate group have launched a nationwide campaign denouncing Christmas as evil.
Fanatics from the group plan to erect thousands of placards around the UK claiming the festive season is responsible for rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime and pedophilia.
The aim of the campaign is to “destroy Christmas” in the UK and persuade the masses to convert to Islam instead.
Jim Fitzpatrick, Labour MP and anti racist campaigner has branded the posers “extremely offensive” and has demanded that they be taken down.
The signs which have already appeared in parts of London, look very festive at first glance, with a red background and an image of the Star of Bethlehem over a Christmas tree.
Under the title of “the Evils of Christmas” the signage features a message mocking the twelve days of Christmas. It reads: "On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD (sexually transmitted disease).
"On the second day debt, on the third rape, the fourth teenage pregnancies and then there was abortion.'
The poster also insists that the holiday season is responsible for paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs.
The bottom of the poster declares: "In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honor, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child."
The organizer of the campaign is 27-year-old Abu Rumaysah, who once called for the introduction of Sharia law in Britain.
The former Home Secretary Alan Johnson banned this Islam4UK group earlier this year, making it a criminal offense to be a member of the group.
Mr Rumaysah told the London Daily Mail that he wasn’t concerned about offending Christians.
He said: 'Christmas is a lie and as Muslims it is our duty to attack it.
"But our main attack is on the fruits of Christmas, things like alcohol abuse and promiscuity that increase during Christmas and all the other evils these lead to such as abortion, domestic violence and crime.
"We hope that out campaign will make people realize that Islam is the only way to avoid this and convert."
The campaign was first highlighted by volunteers distributing food and presents to pensioners for the holiday season.
Sister Christine Frost, who is a founding member of the East London Neighbors in Poplar charity, said: 'The more posters I saw, the more angry I got.
"Someone is stirring hatred which leaves the road open to revenge attacks or petrol bombs through letter-boxes.
'I told the Mayor we are all scared.
"If we said such things about Muslims, we'd all be hanging from lamp-posts.
"The posters appear to be professionally printed," she added.
