Posted on 10/18/2013 4:30:34 AM PDT by klpt
Moscow is now home to 2 million Muslims - more than any other city in Europe.
So when the faithful gathered Tuesday for the start of the Eid al-Adha holiday, tens of thousands of men unrolled their prayer mats on the asphalt of Moscows streets. Last year, they prayed outside in rain and snow.
Looming overhead were the new minarets of the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, a century-old mosque that is now being expanded. It is one of only four mosques in all of Moscow.
Certainly mosques are needed. Mosques are needed in each micro-district, said Abdul Bari Sultanov, a Russian Muslim from Tatarstan, a historically Muslim region, after prayers Tuesday. As well as madrassas, schools, imams so that people would be morally prepared for meeting their God.
The Russian Orthodox Church is building 200 new churches around Moscow. In contrast, new mosque projects never win building permits.
Russian Muslim activist Geydar Dzhemal claims that the Kremlin blocks new mosques in Russias capital.
They understand the politics of suppression -- direct suppression, said Dzhemal, who has criticized Moscows policy on Islam since the Soviet days. And they don't understand that this will create problems for themselves much worse then those they are trying to understand now.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has vowed that no new mosques will be built in Moscow. He claims that the Muslims praying in streets on holidays are largely Central Asians, guest workers who will eventually go home.

aahh, that’s a shame..
Voice of America is really, really concerned for the muslims and their god...
Look up “Tatar Yoke”, a period in Russian history that defines their attitude toward muzzies today.
Mecca is THAT way. Do not turn around.
Damn, we better schedule some U.N. votes on that...yeah.
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues.
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels.
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in Bangladesh Muslim 83%, Egypt Muslim 90%, Gaza Muslim 98.7%, Indonesia Muslim 86.1%, Iran Muslim 98%, Iraq Muslim 97%, Jordan Muslim 92%
100% will usher in the peace of Dar-es-Salaam the Islamic House of Peace. Here theres supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan Muslim 100%, Saudi Arabia Muslim 100%, Somalia Muslim 100%, Yemen ---Muslim 100%.
this will create problems for themselves
Ok, and not suppressing them will make them peaceful? I kind of doubt that. Has anyone ever noticed that EVERY Islamic govt is oppressive? Hmmmmm, why might that be? Might it be that it is a violent, brutal and barbaric religion?
Glad to hear it
Treat mooselimbs worldwide as they treat Christians in the middle east,
Beheadings and drag em through the streets behind some old rusted out pick up
Acts of terrorism committed in Moscow are not forgotten. The Muhammedans are free to leave and go to one of their very own Hell Holes.
Seems like Russia is getting its house in order these days...while the US is trashing the inside and telling CPS that the kids are just fine behind a newly painted exterior...
Good and gooder, sez me. May they rise swiftly to greet the dawn and may the dawn stay low enough to hit them all in the head ...hard enough to knock them back into the midnight they snuck out of. And I do not give them permission to partake of my moonlight OR my fresh air...ever.
How does it feel to be on the receiving end of the violence for once?
And they don’t understand that this will create problems for themselves much worse then those they are trying to understand now.
Is that a threat?
The Russians remember Beslan. Atrocities have consequences.
Apparently they don’t remember it well enough or there wouldn’t be 2 million muslims in Moscow.
- Keep it up muzzies - Putin will be gentle......
I just limped to the pharmacy and got a fresh needle supply. Did you see the Sauds sulking?
Voice of America reports this? Sounds more like Voice of Obamugabe....building sympathy for an eventual boycott of Russia’s Olympic games.
What’s that? A target rich environment?
I wish more people would remember Beslan.
