Ireland to Build One of Europe's Largest Mosques
Gatestone Institute ^ | 4/2/13 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 04/02/2013 8:44:58 PM PDT by marshmallow

The Emir of Qatar, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist, has vowed to "spare no effort" to spread Wahhabi Islam throughout Europe. Wahhabism — which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims — threatens to radicalize Muslim immigrants in Ireland.

City planners in the Irish capital, Dublin, have given the go-ahead for the construction of a sprawling mega-mosque complex that will cater to Ireland's burgeoning Muslim population.

The massive €40 million ($50 million) "Islamic Cultural Center" will be built on a six-acre site in Clongriffin, a new and as yet unfinished suburb at the northern edge of Dublin.

According to the Dublin City Council, which approved the project on March 7, the Clongriffin Mosque will consist of: (a) a three-story domed mosque and cultural center with towering minarets; (b) a two-story conference center including a reception foyer, conference room, restaurant, banquet hall, kitchens and ancillary accommodation; (c) a three-story 16-classroom primary school and a two-story 12-classroom secondary school; (d) a two-story fitness center with a gym, sauna, steam room and an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool; (e) a bookshop, library and mortuary; and (f) three four-story blocks of two-bedroom apartments with ground floor shops.

The Clongriffin Mosque will cater to some of the 30,000 Muslims living in Dublin, which is home to around 60% of the estimated 50,000 Muslims living in Ireland.

When will we learn? The only thing comforting here is that the Irish have shown they can blow things up real good. If they thought the Brits were bad wait until the muzzies start trying to take over.

City planners have banned the use of public address announcements or a call to prayer which could be audible outside the centre.

Shea! Right!

no better way to get a list of Muslims in your area then to build a Muslim attraction and record everyone going in.

from there, track their movements to see where they go, what businesses they frequent, and who they associate with

drones @ 2000 ft can be very useful for this.

even smaller drones, insect size, are even better for close observation/ intell gathering

We're worrying about the wrong Mideast nation. It's not Iran aggressively financing this movement.

I'm beginning to think an Iranian bomb might not be such a bad thing.

So one big bomb on Dublin from orbit can deal with 60% of them in Ireland. Sounds good to me.

you know, maybe I have the wrong idea. Perhaps going with the Lockerbie/Twin Towers theme, we should fly a few 747s that are about to be decommisioned into it. We’ll just be helping them get to Allah a bit warmer.

IRA bombers have shown us that they’re serving muslims in other parts of the world, like building bombs for HAMAS.

This is metastasis.

“Sometimes I wonder if we should have just let Saddam have Saudi Arabia.”

You have a good point there. Saddam could keep Iran in check. He could have dealt a death blow to the Saudi’s...they are the funders for most of the Muzzie terrorism/aggression around the world.

As for Ireland, it is a nice country, and I bet they will know how to keep these nasty Muzzies in check. As has already been said, keeping them all attached to ONE mosque makes it easier to keep track of them.

Ireland really is a beautiful country...including the Republic and the northern six counties controlled by the UK. I know. I lived there for three years, and I have been back several times for visits.

Dublin is a bit of a cosmopolitan city, and some years ago even had a Jewish mayor. God forbid, though they ever get a Muzzie mayor.

They have been disarmed and brought under Orwellian control, sadly, mostly willingly, and have lost the will to fight for themselves, their families and their countries.

Socialists just see muslims as the tool to eradicate Christians. They’ll use them as long as they’re useful. They dodn’t realize islam will rival and then overtake socialism.

Yes, but there are plenty of Leftists, especially in Dublin, who will no doubt approve of this development. It was a Dublin jury who aquitted a few anti-war protesters that did $2 million in damage to a U.S. C-130 shipping supplies to our troops in Iraq a few years ago. The Ireland of people’s memories is not what it seems.

You are correct, sir. Leftists and Globalists are trying to destroy nationalism by destroying national identity — the unifying culture, religion, language and people of a nation. The Leftist and Globalist plans are going even smoother than expected because the weak-willed are so deathly afraid of being called “racist” if they object to their nation’s dilution or death.

You have to be kidding.

If we have not learned by now, it’s too late. Besides, the West is more interested in its destruction than it’s survival.

Why do you think that it’s called the culture of death?

There would probably be Christian church services in Saudi by now and more personal freedom than there is today.

That is true. But the IRA does not control govt in the Republic. The Republic has/had little use for the IRA in recent times. The IRA was as much a threat to the Republic as to the UK.

Colonization is an apt description. Muslims are building a huge complex in Nashville in an area where not many terrorists, er, muslims live. Long term planning for colonists in action..

Ha! Who do you think taught the Irish to blow things up so good? There weren’t PLO solidarity murals all over Belfast for no reason. Brothers in arms.

The real comfort here is that there is no way in hell many Irish will ever convert to Islam when they find out that whiskey is forbidden!

They have a name for it in Arabic: Dawa. It's Islamic prosletyzation.

You're right--it is colonization. I run a public library, and guess what? Over the last several years we have--twice!--received, unsolicited, Wahabbi prosletization materials. Small, colorful, paperback books circa 100 pp., two copies.

Received them twice, total of four. I assume all other libraries received 'em.

That's a helluva lotta postage. $$$

They're well-funded. They move with purpose, they plan.

The West doesn't plan. It doesn't even react. It's a chess game, and we're not even seated at the board, and our opponent just started the clock--our time is running. We don't even realize there's a game afoot.

To make it worse--for those of you who ARE Biblically literate, you'll understand what I'm about to say--Revelation says that Christians would be martyred via beheading.

Guess who does that? The Saudis. This week, they actually commuted the sentence of one person from CRUCIFIXION down to a lesser form of punishment.

Yep, they're still doin' crucifixion.

The implication is that Islam ultimately puts Jews and Christians into a tight spot before the End.

Apologetics and eschatology. Fun to consider both in light of current events. What a backdrop.

Having lived in Saudi Arabia in the early 80s I became an anti muslim while still in my teens. And everything I railed about then has come true, massive mosque building, massive immigration without assimilation, and terrorism. I remember being appalled that Americans didn’t take to the streets after Pan Am 103..and I was only 21..
