    Tea Party activist Pamela Geller has been establishing links with Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, a leading figure in the far-right, anti-islamic English Defence league. This far-right group are known for their violence, and are keen to forge links with anti-islamic factions within the Tea Party.

    On October, 2010, Rabbi Nachum Shifren, a well known opposer of the Ground Zero mosque proposal, travelled to England to speak at a rally. In his speech, he called Muslims "dogs" and told the EDL that "History will be recorded that on this day, read by our children for eternity, one group lit the spark to liberate us from the oppressors of our two governments and the leftist, fifth column, quisling press, and that it was the EDL which started the liberation of England from evil."
