On Monday, a group of Muslims yelling ‘Allahu Ackbar’ marched behind a protest in support of Ireland’s open borders immigration policy.
A tiny rally in favour of the Irish government’s open borders policies was joined by a handful of Muslims holding signs decrying the burning of the Qur’an while shouting Allahu Ackbar.
The march was overshadowed by a neighboring protest against mass immigration, which was attended by “thousands” of people urging that the government restrict the number of refugees and asylum seekers it accepts.
A tiny number of Islamic demonstrators could be seen walking behind the protestors brandishing banners in favor of open borders in a video provided by Le Chéile, the progressive organization that helped organize the pro-migrant gathering.
The men can be heard yelling a number of Islamic slogans in the clip, including the notorious “allahu ackbar”, while carrying banners decrying Qur’an burning as “hate speech”.
Proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Irish who are welcoming of refugees and asylum seekers, who remember that the Irish faced the same racism & far right bigotry seeking to divide the poorest & most vulnerable when we emigrated in the past. #RefugeesWelcome pic.twitter.com/DZJoKnnzG1

“We adore Quran,” said one placard, while another claimed that “we won’t allow Islamophobia”.
“The far-left is functioning as an aircraft carrier for Islamic extremism entering Ireland and should now be reviewed as a security danger,” Irish Freedom Party President Hermann Kelly said in response to the video.
“Only a restricted and verified immigration strategy can make Ireland safer,” he added. “Ireland requires thousands of impoverished Muslim fanatics as it requires a hole in the brain.”
It is unknown if the guys yelling Islamic chants were taking part in the open borders march or another rally.
Although the pro-open borders demonstration received much publicity in the Irish media, it was eclipsed by a considerably bigger protest march against Ireland’s mass immigration program.
With the country taking in over 80,000 refugees and asylum seekers in 2022 alone, the country has seen a dramatic increase in demonstrations in recent weeks, with many concerned about the volume of migrants entering in the country of barely 5 million people.
The Irish Times said that “thousands” of people turned up to oppose the country’s mass migration policy on Monday, making it one of the largest of its sort thus far.
“We’re sick of being branded racists and liars,” Gavin Pepper, one of the demonstration’s speakers, stated. “We’re looking out for our children and families.”
Many protestors also criticized the country’s legacy media, which has consistently connected the current rallies to a mysterious “far-right” in the country.
A plurality of people now feel that the country’s media are “biased in favor of refugees and against those with reservations,” according to a poll issued on Sunday.
