Very well, then. Get along without the relief.
“Islamists protest US naval presence for cyclone relief,” from IANS (thanks to Twostellas):
Dhaka, Nov 24 – Several hundred activists of the radical Islamic group Hizb ut Tahrir staged protests here before the arrival of two ships of the US Navy for distributing relief supplies among cyclone-affected people.
Two warships, USS Essex and USS Kearsarge — each carrying 20 helicopters and 3,500 marines on board with emergency relief supplies, medical and emergency evacuation teams — are scheduled to enter Bangladesh waters Saturday and Tuesday.
The protesters Friday carried a banner reading ‘Prevent American ships from entering the Bay of Bengal in the name of distributing relief’ and chanted slogans ‘Go back to America’ and ‘US has no place in Bangladesh’.
The outfit’s leader Kazi Morshedul Haque told the rally that every Bangladeshi had come forward to help cyclone victims along with the army, navy and air force, ‘so it is a shame on us, Muslims, that we are allowing the US on our land’.
