Muslim 5th Columists and Useful Idiots march for sharia law in Vienna

Thousands of Muslim women have marched in Vienna against controversial government plans to ban full-face veils in public.

An estimated 3,000 took part in the rally calling for the law change to be abandoned, accusing the government of Islamophobia.

Placards declared that wearing a veil is a personal choice, and protesters claimed that the measure is both sexist and anti-Muslim.
