Islamic extremists pelt eggs at Muslim Baroness Warsi during Luton protest

From The Telegraph. This was reported in the local paper last night but I didn't have time to put it up then. This report gives Baroness Warsi's response.
Conservative Muslim Peer Baroness Warsi of Dewsbury has criticised a group of Islamic extremists who pelted her with eggs and shouted abuse at her during a visit in Luton.
The shadow minister for community cohesion and social action had been meeting local businesses with Tory candidates when she was attacked just before 5pm on Monday.
Up to 10 local British male protesters, believed to be members of the controversial Al Muhajiroun group, started shouting abuse at the Peer, accusing her of not being a proper Muslim and supporting the deaths of Muslims in Afghanistan.
Members of the group then threw several eggs at her, with one hitting her on the side of the head and another soiling her jacket.
Baroness Warsi, the country's most powerful female Mulsims, was not injured during the attack in the city's Bury Park area.
Amid concerns for her safety, witnesses said Baroness Warsi refused to run from the group, but instead started remonstrating with them, later branding them "extremists" who did not represent the views of British Muslims.
She later retreated into a sari shop.
Despite police being called, no one was arrested for the attack which was universally condemned by locals. No one was arrested last time and that was far more serious.
Brushing off the incident last night, the Tory Peer later addressed a local meeting, where she branded the group "idiots and vile" who did not represent Muslim views and were "clearly repulsed with me".
It is believed the protesters were from the same group of Mulims who earlier this year marred the homecoming of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment through Luton.
Baroness Warsi, who appeared on the BBC's Question Time alongside Mr Griffin last month, said she decided to stand up to the group because she wanted a proper debate with them.
Instead, she said, the group failed to articulate any arguments and only "brought Muslims into disrepute".
Saiful Islam, a member of the group which wants Sharia law to be implemented in Britain, denied his group were behind the attacks but added: "Baroness Warsi purports to be a Muslim but really she's just pushing a government agenda. She should be received with condemnation. She is clearly in opposition to Sharia."

 Following UK government policies of mass immigration, Luton has a large population of Muslim, probably over 20%, maybe  35,000.

 The influence of al-Muhajiroun was apparent in Luton last March:

"Luton's Muslim extremists defy public anger"

 Muslim Baroness Warsi is trying, in vain, to convince us that Islam is 'a religion of peace'.

And, of course, there's always this:

"Car connection casts shadow over Luton's Muslims"
