Muslim Domination of Public Space
As soon as they move into Dar al-Harb (the lands of the infidel) in any numbers, Islamists think they have a God-given right to dominate public space and intimidate the infidels into submission.
Mosques are of course notorious examples of this (see Mosque blight) but their swaggering, aggressive arrogance and sense of preferential entitlement make them obnoxious to the indigenous inhabitants in many other ways.
The notorious Ground Zero Victory Mosque is just the latest example of a process that has been going on for years in the West, and centuries in lands conquered by Islam:
St George parade cancelled because it’s offensive to Muslims
“A MARCH to celebrate St George’s Day has been axed – because the authorities fear it could spark race riots. About 1,500 children were due to take part in a parade to commemorate the patron saint of England on Wednesday. But council bosses in Bradford, West Yorks, have ditched the event over concerns it could upset the Asian community, many of them Muslim. http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/view/35580/St-George-s-parade-scrapped-in-case-it-upsets-Muslims/
Muslims threaten New York restaurant for serving alcohol
“Yet another stealth jihad attempt to compel non-Muslims to change their behavior to accommodate Muslim sensibilities. “Spotted Piglet Hiccups: Boozy Breslin Clashes With Mosque,” by Meredith Bryan for the New York Observer, October 27 (thanks to Ed): The much-hyped, soon-to-open Breslin restaurant, situated in the 12-story Ace Hotel on Broadway and 29th, is giving members of the Masjid Ar-Rahman mosque across the street some agita. “Five times a day, there’s a hundred cabs on the street–the good news is you can always get a cab,” co-owner Ken Friedman told the Transom the other evening. He said some mosque visitors “object to seeing people drink alcohol.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/10/muslims-threaten-new-york-restaurant-for-serving-alcohol.html
No go areas in London
When Abu Izzadeen, the firebrand Islamist militant, berated John Reid last week for “daring” to visit a Muslim area, the Home Secretary bridled, as did many others, at his suggestion that part of London was off limits for a British minister of the Crown. There was nowhere in this country from which anyone should be excluded, Mr Reid said; nowhere that could be called exclusively Muslim. He was speaking just a couple of Tube stops from West Ham, close to the site for the 2012 Olympic stadium, where a huge row is about to erupt over plans to construct a mosque. However, this is not any old mosque built to serve the local community. It will be the largest place of worship in Europe, a gigantic three-storey Islamic centre, with schools and other facilities, able to hold at least 40,000 worshippers and up to 70,000 if necessary. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/personal-view/3632591/The-shadow-cast-by-a-mega-mosque.html
Labour council enforces Ramadan on non Muslims
Despite recent temperatures pushing 30 C Labour controlled Tower Hamlets Council has ordered all councillors not to drink in meetings during Ramadan (starts in about 2 DAYS), so as not to offend Muslim councillors. It has even gone so far as to order non Muslim councillors not to eat the finger food prepared for council meetings until Muslims break their fast at sunset – despite the food being served in a separate room. http://conservativehome.blogs.com/centreright/2008/08/labour-council.html
Moslem monstrosity ruins English skyline
So the new dome has been erected on top of the local headquarters of Islam in Cheltenham and to make sure the former owners of Cheltenham know who their new masters are to be, it is painted bright turquoise and lit up with flood lights at night. In your face 24/7. Suck it up Cheltenham. The fact that there was no planning permission for this colour or lights means nothing to the enrichers of Cheltenham. The sudden appearance of the dome alarmed some passers-by. Tony Davis, from Charlton Kings, said he did not think it fitted in with the surrounding buildings. The 52-year-old said: “I was driving back from Tewkesbury and I saw this thing that resembled a Belisha beacon. “It stands out a mile and I really don’t feel it should be there. I felt my blood pressure going up just looking at it. “It’s all very well having it, but I don’t think it should be allowed to ruin Cheltenham’s skyline like that.”
Porcelain pigs offend Muslims
LEICESTER — Police here in central England seized a collection of porcelain pigs from a house’s window sill after Muslims complained that they were offensive.
“I just couldn’t believe it, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry,” Mrs Nancy Bennett, the owner of the 17 miniature pigs, told the Sun tabloid newspaper.
The porcelain figures were held at the local police station, while Mrs Bennett was threatened with prosecution if she replaces the collection. Her house is located in the same street as the city’s main mosque, meaning that Muslim worshippers often passed by her front window where the pig figurines were on display. “Muslims find pigs highly offensive,” explained police officer David Griffiths. “That is why the complaints were made”. http://www.dispatch.co.za/1998/05/26/foreign/PIG.HTM
Nativity plays banned
The increasing Islamification of Britain has seen nativity plays banned or pushed aside for Eid festivals – and now a south Yorkshire school with a large Muslim student population has banned its traditional Easter Bonnet parades outright.
The Meersbrook Bank Primary School in Sheffield, more famous for the forced resignation of a former headteacher after a backlash from Muslim parents objecting to her plans to scrap separate assemblies for Muslim pupils has axed its Easter bonnet parade.
Although claiming that the decision is not related to the large number of Muslim pupils, indigenous British parents have not been fooled, with one remarking to a local newspaper, “I believe it’s all connected with what’s been going on earlier in the year. Never in my life did I ever think I would be having this conversation.” http://bnp.org.uk/2009/04/easter-bonnet-parade-cancelled-as-society-becomes-islamified/
Netherlands: Mosque goers vs. Dog walkers
Visitors of the El Fath mosque in the Amersfoort neighborhood of Liendert (Netherlands) and dog walkers along the Valleikanaal, behind the prayer house, are not hitting it off. Some mosque goers are annoyed by the four-legged animals, who for many Muslims are impure, running freely The dog owners say that El Fath didn’t have permission for an entrance on the footpath. Most don’t plan to leash their dogs. Local party BPA brought the issue up to the city council. Pico, a Spanish dog, is one his mistress knows can run free. But visitors of the El Fath mosque prefer that Ineke Simonis leash her dog. They prefer that he doesn’t come close to them. Certainly not just after a prayer service, after they’ve just purified their souls. A dog is after all an impure animal for Muslims.
Ineke, just like other dog walkers along the Valleikanaal, had already exchanged words a few times with mosque goes who leave through the back of the prayer house. “And it’s not friendly then. They scream at me that my dog may not run freely here. Than I shout back that they’re wrong.” http://islamineurope.blogspot.com/2009/04/netherlands-mosque-goers-vs-dog-walkers.html
UK: shopping center Santa banned — in case he offends non-Christians
The dhimmization of Britain is happening so fast I can barely keep up with it. A three million dollar mosque for Muslim prison inmates, controversy over the naming of a school after a saint, and now this, from The Sun, with thanks to the Dulwich Dynamo:
BOSSES have banned Santa from a shopping centre – in case he offends non-Christians.
The Scrooges struck at Birmingham’s famous Bullring.
A spokeswoman said: “We wish to be sensitive to people of other religions over the festive period. There are a lot of people in the region who are not Christians and do not celebrate Christmas.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2004/11/uk-shopping-center-santa-banned-in-case-he-offends-non-christians.html
Alcohol sales to kuffars offensive to Muslims
More than 150 people have signed petitions imploring Luton Borough Council to deny the new Tesco Express in Bury Park an alcohol licence. The bid from the supermarket giant has upset Muslims living in the area, some of whom say they find the idea of alcohol being sold offensive. http://www.bedfordtoday.co.uk/541/Muslims-oppose-Tesco-booze-bid.4517977.jp
Muslims threaten to vandalise pig statue
A historic statue of a wild boar is unlikely to return to Derby’s Arboretum, because it could offend Muslims living nearby. The Florentine Boar stood in the Derby park from 1840 to 1942, when it was beheaded by flying masonry during an air raid. Derby City Council had hoped to replace the statue with an identical replica when plans for a massive overhaul of the park were first considered a decade ago. But following reservations raised by some people in Normanton about a new boar statue, the authority decided to consult with local community leaders.
At a meeting of the council’s minority ethnic communities advisory committee it was recommended that the boar be replaced with something else because of the strength of feeling among nearby residents as pigs are perceived as offensive creatures by many Muslims. Derwent Ward councillor Suman Gupta said, “If the statue of the boar is put back at the Arboretum I have been told that it will not be there the next day, or at least it won’t be in the same condition the next day at least. We should not have the boar because it is offensive to some of the groups in the immediate area.” http://www.derbygripe.co.uk/arbor.htm
KNOXVILLE: MUSLIMS SEEK TO STOP RESTAURANT THAT SELLS BEER
“I want to feed the community. We are providing a service to the Fort Sanders community and we have a good blue plate, a good cheap lunch and dinner,” Infidel Trevor Hill
Islam imposes its law on Main street, USA. This is what I mean when I say “imposing their Islam” and “Islamic supremacism”. Their law does not supersede ours. They are not a special class. We Americans do not have to change our ways, our lives, our laws to bow and submit to Islamic law. What part of the Constitution do these Muslims not understand?
I strongly recommend that my readers in and around Knoxville, Tennessee, get involved in this issue and get involved now. Just say no to Islamic supremacism. And yes, there are jobs involved in this economic free fall ………but that is not the key issue here, as critical as that is. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/03/knoxville-muslims-seek-to-stop-restaurant-that-sells-.html
Christians resist Moslem world domination
FOUR Christian churches have joined in an unprecedented attack on the Islamic faith in an attempt to stop a Muslim school being built. Calling the religion an ideology driven by world domination, a submission to the Land and Environment Court yesterday said a proposed school at Camden was a “beachhead” in Islamic takeover of southwestern Sydney, threatening the Australian way of life. The attack, co-signed by local heads of Baptist, Anglican, Presbyterian and the Evangelical Sisters of Mary churches, formed the spearhead of Camden City Council’s defence to a court challenge over its rejection of a development application for the Muslim school.
“Islam is not simply a private religion. It is driven by a powerful political agenda, it is an ideology with a plan for world domination,” the letter said. “The Quranic Society application to establish an Islamic school in Camden is typical of a regularly repeated pattern to form a beachhead in an area for the development of a sub-culture which, for the most part, regards its own legal system as superior to the current Australian law.” http://www.news.com.au/national/churches-unite-against-islamic-school/story-e6frfkvr-1225701513720
An act of dominance and aggression
“LONDON (Reuters Life!) – A battle of faiths is being waged in the ancient English city of Oxford, where some people are bitterly opposed to Muslim plans to broadcast the call to prayer over the fabled dreaming spires.” http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/02/fitzgerald-an-act-of-dominance-and-aggression.html
Screeching and wailing over Buddhist holy site
The mussein’s call to prayer for the faithful of Islam, here in this most sacred location to all of Buddhism, ripped me back to modern reality. I was stunned! How could this be? Here in one of the most significant spots of Buddhism, loud speakers come on at four in the morning every day, to shock and intrude upon meditators and Buddhist practitioners using this spot for that which it has to offer in its most special way? How could this be allowed? It is…
The Muslim call to prayer seemed to go on and on…..20 minutes to a half-hour later, the scratchy recording thankfully ended and quiet returned. My concentration was thoroughly blown. Instead of following my breath, I found myself looking at the great distraction and paradox I had just experienced. I thought about Mecca!
Could any other religion intrude itself there in the holiest of places to Islam, as the tenets of Islam had so intruded itself here in the holiest place of Buddhism? http://18.104.22.168/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=26040
Flight 93 memorial a heap of of shi’ite
Tom Burnett Sr. is publicly backing Alec Rawls’s claim that the planned Flight 93 Memorial is riddled with Islamic and terrorist memorializing elements. Mr. Burnett is refusing to allow Tom Jr.’s name to be used in the memorial, and is calling for a Congressional investigation.
Alec’s latest post shows how easy it is to verify the factual accuracy of his claims: the Mecca-orientation of the giant crescent, the 44 glass blocks on the flight path (matching the number of passengers, crew, and terrorists), the placement of the 9/11 date in the exact position of the star on an Islamic crescent and Star flag, and more. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2007/08/tom-burnett-sr-denounces-flight-93-memorial-calls-for-congressional-investigation.html
Swimmers are told to wear burkinis
British swimming pools are imposing Muslim dress codes in a move described as divisive by Labour MPs. Under the rules, swimmers – including non-Muslims – are barred from entering the pool in normal swimming attire. Instead they are told that they must comply with the “modest” code of dress required by Islamic custom, with women covered from the neck to the ankles and men, who swim separately, covered from the navel to the knees. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/6034706/Swimmers-are-told-to-wear-burkinis.html
British libraries to put Koran on top shelf, at Muslims’ request
And I use the word “request” very loosely indeed. In case you were worried that that de facto fatwa they imposed by banishing Geert Wilders is part of a trend, the answer is yes.
Muslims have complained of finding the Koran on lower shelves, saying it should be put above commonplace things. So officials have responded with guidance, backed by ministers, that all holy books should be treated equally and go on the top shelf together…
The report said the city’s librarians consulted the Federation of Muslim Organisations and were advised that all religious texts should be kept on the top shelf. ‘This meant that no offence is caused, as the scriptures of all the major faiths are given respect in this way, but none is higher than any other,’ the guidance added…
Inayat Bunglawala, of the Engage think tank, which encourages Muslims to play a greater role in public life, said: ‘If Muslims wish to see the Koran placed on a higher shelf, and library rules say it should be there, then that is a welcome and considerate gesture. ‘But one size does not fit all. If Christians do not want to see the Bible treated in the same way, I do not see why it has to be dealt with the same.’
Sound familiar? Borders caved on exactly this point a few years ago, reserving pride of place for the Koran on the top shelf of their stores lest they get a taste of what Wilders has to live with every day from his Islamic “critics.” It’s a cowardly policy but somewhat understandable in the case of a private corporation; in the case of a state with armies at its disposal, not so much. Bizarrely, the main objection from Christians interviewed for the story isn’t that the Koran’s getting special treatment, it’s that sticking the Bible way up top will make it less accessible to library-goers looking for a copy. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/02/17/british-libraries-to-put-koran-on-top-shelf-at-muslims-request/
Warning to Muslims who believe that the public space can be invaded without consequences.
Ligue de Défense Française (LDF) November 20, 2010
Posted on 21 November 2010 21:59:01 by La Lydia
“Warning to Muslims who believe that the public space can be invaded without consequences. For a number of years, certain of you muslim gentlemen dare to regularly occupy the public space for your prayers. This occupation, as you well know, is illegal, and is, as we well know, a provocation and a demonstration of force designed to show your domination in certain parts of France and your contempt for our laws and the secular nature of our country.
These politico-cultural demonstrations are in defiance of our institutions and our culture, they put our territorial integrity under pressure with the aim of forcing the construction of mosques, which are often financed by the money of non-muslims who then find themselves victims of gigantic rackets in which our elected officials are complicit.
Muslim militias and certain muslims totally illegally block the streets to non-muslims, preventing the citizens and residents from circulating, returning home or leaving their houses and the mayors say nothing, the police say nothing, the State says nothing.
Thus it remains for the French Nation, to the citizens themselves to take over because all their representatives have spinelessly bent over in the face of intimidation. The message sent out by the French nation to the “praying” is clear:
Stop praying immediately on the public highway, it is illegal. Pray elsewhere, or don’t pray, we couldn’t care less…Nothing gives you the right to occupy our streets, you must respect our laws.
You are extremely lucky that the French (of all confessions and origins) are so patient and indulgent with you but in the face of your arrogant provocations, one day the limit will be reached.
Then there will no longer be time to whine about discrimination. You will have been the sole cause of your inevitable future troubles if you continue to defy our laws. Who sows the wind reaps the storm. Stop sowing discord in France, stop occupying our streets and our towns with your inopportune prayers.”
Ground Zero Victory Mosque as Domination of Public Space
A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory
by Wafa Sultan May 19, 2010 at 5:00 am
A new mosque is now being planned in New York near “Ground Zero,” two blocks from where the World Trade Center used to be. This mosque is headed by an Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, who proposes to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place into an Islamic Cultural Center which would contain a mosque.
It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.
On a daily bases, in so many parts of the world, deadly attacks are perpetrated by Jihadists either against non Muslims or, frequently, against Muslims — especially Muslim women. The terror type of Jihad, however, is only one way for Islamists to accomplish their mission of making the “Kafir,” or infidels, submit to Sharia Law. Another method is, as the author Robert Spencer calls it, an insidious, creeping “Stealth Jihad.”
