Tommy has been under more pressure and intense scrutiny from all sides during his EDL time. His children have been threatened with beheading, he has been assaulted in his car by a Muslim and numerous other outbreaks of trouble have come down upon him, not to mention tension in the EDL ranks from various sub groups who have sought to capitalize on the movement for their own more narrow and incendiary agendas.
In fact, the EDL sounds a lot like the problem plaqued Byzantine army just prior to Yarmouk. I wonder how the Byzantine troops who were led by this 'George' character would have felt when he abandoned them before the battle to convert publicly to Islam? Natually it would be very demoralizing and create a notable weak point in the Byzantine Army, a point that an astute Muslim commander could capitalize on during the battle.
I doubt that "Tommy" would convert to Islam, but it would be the first or the last time that a high profile "enemy of Islam" had done just that. The first contemporary name that comes to mind is
Arnoud van Doorn former vice chairman of Geert Wilders Freedom Party.
