An excellent point. Normally, God defends the believers, not the reverse. And defending can mean giving them the strength to go through martyrdom and be sacrificed for the truth. Not among Muslims, though, who have such a feeble god it needs to be "defended" by veiled nutcases.
Oh, I see - they had their backs to the cathedral and were facing the press! Thanks for the clarification.
Medieval and Renaissance Christian and secular artists had no religious restrictions regarding depictions of Mohammed, and were free to show his face and body in their entirety.
This picture is of an early Renaissance fresco in Bologna's Church of San Petronio, created by Giovanni da Modena and depicting Mohammed being tortured in Hell.
The fresco is in an inaccessible part of the church and is now only visible at an angle from a distance; this old black-and-white image is one of the few official photos ever taken that shows a straight frontal view of the figures.
This is NYC's, last I knew anyway :)
Anti-Mask: New York Penal Law § 240.35(4)
SUMMARY New Yorks anti-mask law criminalizes the wearing of masks or disguises by three or more persons in a public place unless done in connection with a masquerade party or like entertainment, after obtaining a permit to wear masks from the police or other appropriate authorities. The courts have defined like entertainment as social gatherings, dances, andperformances that involve masks or costumes, Under the current law, wearing a bandana tied around ones face falls within the scope of the mask prohibition. The courts have held that the anti-mask law furthers the important governmental interest of deterring violence and facilitating the apprehension of wrong-doers who seek to hide theiridentity. Since 2001, both the New York City Criminal Court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals have held that the anti-mask law is not overly broad or facially unconstitutional.Moreover, both courts have rejected all case-specific challenges that the law was unconstitutional as applied.....
"What's with the masks? Why do Muslim men cover their faces? Is this the GQ version of a male burqah?"
Probably because they arrested a bunch of the brats last time. Funny how they're calling others evil when they're hiding from the law.
"What's with the masks? Why do Muslim men cover their faces?"
Standard police tactics for dealing with this kind of protest is to avoid piling in and escalating things unless necessary. But they will get everything on film and anyone identified as having committed an offence will get a '4am knock' in a few days time.

I wonder if in a thousand years from now the general public buys into the propaganda lies that the Catholic church started a holy crusade against the muslims in the 21st century.
And no one shot them?
Okay, so I think my picture must be Westminster Abbey.
Hey, I had three days in London and I was taking pictures of anything that looked, well, old, and important.
One of the signs said "Trinity of Evil: Bush, Blair, and the Pope." While I certainly don't have any inflated opinion of my own worth, whoever wrote that sign can add me to the roster. If they're taking a vote, I'd like to see Islam crushed too.
They can "disrepect" Christian places of worship all they please and public figures apologize and hedge and explain what they really meant. But let Christians do the same -- you know it would get bloody quick.
Wait a minute,I thought that Islam was"The Religion of Peace"?They get accused of VIOLENCE and how do they react??VIOLENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds a lot like how the Commies and the Cubans operate...except with a sword in hand.
How cool is that ... they get to protest. Love FREEDOM!
The West had better open the eyes a bit wider and see that the Islamic threat is a far greater than realized . The Dutch stated they were tired of being tolerant to an intolerant people then deported a shitload of them. Islam is not compatible with the civilized world.....
No,we'll BEHEAD anyone who accuses us of VIOLENCE!!!!!!!!!!
You're on a roster alright. (See my profile.)
The Brits should follow Australia's attitude towards unhappy muslims, and we might learn from Australia too.
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential error attacks.
A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he said on national television.
"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia: one the Australian law and another the Islamic law, that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option," Costello said.
Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off. Basically people who don't want to be Australians, and who don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then, they can basically clear off," he said.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques quote: "IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave it. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians."
"However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the politically correct' crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia." "However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand." "This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle." "This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom"
"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the language!"
"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right; > wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture."
"We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us." "If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like " A Fair Go," then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.
"This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.'" "If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted."
I know I say it every time but: it should be against the law (of every land) to assemble/protest with masks on one's face!
Yes,and instead of freeing our embassy personnel,Jimmy CawTah had us tie"yellow ribbons"on trees(not to mention donning cardigans,and turning down the thermostat).We should have TURNED UP THE HEAT ON THESE A**HOLES INSTEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just what we need moose-limbs after Protestants. They are too stupid to understand that we're not Catholic. Capital C
" What's with the masks? Why do Muslim men cover their faces? Is this the GQ version of a male burqah?"
Probably because they arrested a lot of them last time. They're hiding from being identified. Cowards. They have to hide from the law while they accuse the Pope of being evil.
THEY ARE MISERABLE COWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell me, friend, if YOU had a face like THIS, wouldn't you cover it?
Truly the kind of face only a mother could love - a mother whose entire face was covered with a burkha and veil!
Maybe Ann Coulter was right: "Invade their countries; kill their leaders; convert them all to Christianity."
On the other hand, even the high school Confirmation Class on its worst night doesn't look THIS bad!
Now are these the MODERATE Muslims we keep HEARING about? HMMMM.
This report will be suppressed by the MSM.
(But you know that already.)
And proud of the company I'm keeping there.
I want to strangle these pieces of shit to death. Muslims are evil vermin.
I could just imagine the response if non-muslims protested outside a mosque with signs that said. "May God curse mohammed". The rioting that would ensue would be unbelievable. They do this because they know we won't react to them like they would to us. We need to surprise them some day.
I'm serious about this.If we pick the right "mosques",ones that are known to be attended by the worst of the "islamic" scum,riots will result so doing this could be very dangerous.
My sentiments exactly.
By the way, someone should mention to one of the sign holders that Jesus isn't about to "rise" any sword against anyone. Not even HE can make a transitive verb of "rise."
I agree.While I think that Demonrat Icon(FDR)was wrong to put the Nisei at places like Manzanar,I think these A**HOLES should be rounded up and DEPORTED!!!!!!!!!
Westminster Cathedral is Roman Catholic.
HOW CAN SUCH SIGNS APPEAR IN ENGLAND WITHOUT A MOB OF ANGRY CHRISTIANS BEATING THEM TO DEATH?
It's a beautiful Cathedral.I have passed it many times on my way to(or from)Southampton.
Every mosque in the west should be picketed IMO. Signs like "only muslims can stop terrorism" "stop hiding behind israel".....
The sign one of them is holding that says "Jesus will Rise the Sword of Islam" is revolting! Jesus said that those that live by the sword will die by the sword. This means YOU radical Islam!
"WHERE ARE THE "SIEG HEIL" BRITISH SOCCER HOOLIGANS?"
On a Sunday morning? In bed, nursing hangovers!
Yah...we weren't gonna make this re-ligious....but since you wanna....we WILL. (<---use John Wayne accent)
Just a theory.
No one should be covering their face, ugly though they must be.
When do we START!I'm getting on(56),but I'm willing to do my part(and I'm a VERY good shot)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
