So said one of the tiny handful of Muslim protesters who turned out for this demonstration. Yet they weren’t disheartened by their small numbers: “You may only see a minority here but we are the lion cubs. We will not keep quiet.”
Indeed, there are many precedents in history for victory by a small, energized, motivated vanguard that was able to bend the majority to its will. Will that happen in this case? Maybe — but in any case, I do hope law enforcement authorities are watching closely these people who will “never bow down to any man-made law” — in other words, they will obey only Sharia.
“30 people turn out for ‘Islamic’ protest,” by Catherine Evans for Wales On Sunday, July 11:
A PROTEST against “anti- Islamic” European laws attracted less than three dozen people in Cardiff yesterday.
Only about 30 men and women gathered for the “standing-still” demonstration at City Hall.
The rally was in response to what protesters described as an “ideological attack” on Islam.
A number of laws are being proposed across Europe, including Switzerland voting to ban the building of new minarets and France considering a ban on the veil. Belgium’s lower parliament has also voted to ban women from wearing the full Islamic face veil in public earlier.
People at the rally yesterday were led in prayer before a number of Muslim speakers addressed onlookers through a PA system. Protesters held aloft flags and banners which bore the slogans “Shariah 4 Europe” and “Islam is the answer“.
Sajid Idrees led the group in chants before speaking at length. He said: “We are here to show our support for the condemnation of man-made law and to show the fallacy of democracy.
“This is called an ideological war. We will never bow down to any man-made law.
“You may only see a minority here but we are the lion cubs. We will not keep quiet.”
Fellow speaker Muhammed Ashraf questioned the treatment of Western women. “Your women are exploited. Muslim women are honoured.” he said….
“Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
