Telling it like it is.
Organisers from a group called “We do not want Islam in the Czech Republic”, which has more than 100,000 supporters on social media, said last week’s terror attacks in Paris prompted their protest.
Waving Czech flags and banners that read “Islam is Evil” and “Europe wake up”, the protesters honoured the 17 victims killed in the French capital.
Martin Konvicka, a leader of the group, says its aim is “to ban spreading and promoting of Islam”.
Mr Konvicka said the group it has no formal ties with PEGIDA, which organises bigger anti-Islam marches in Germany.
There were some heated exchanges between the group and two dozen counter-protesters.
Apparently unlike some Western European countries they haven’t been overrun by the Islamist hordes.
While there are no official statistics on the number of Muslims in the Czech Republic, local Muslim representatives estimate there are only several hundred living in the country of 10 million. Before the Charlie Hebdo killings, the anti-Muslim stance in the country was advocated by Tokyo-born Czech senator Tomio Okamura, who advised Czechs to walk dogs and pigs by mosques and stop buying kebab snacks because they fund Islamic movements.
If only we had some politicians with such testosterone levels.
