Europe: Mosque Building Shifts into High Gear
The Gatestone Institute ^ | 4/5/13 | Soeren Kern

"In Spain there are signs that Islam will dominate once again." — Hizrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Spiritual Leader, Ahmadiyya Community, Spain

From Belgium to Greece and Spain to Germany, 2013 is shaping up to be another banner year for the construction of mosques in Europe.

In Belgium, work is about to begin on the construction of a mega-mosque in Liège, the third-largest city in the country. The largest mosque in Wallonia (the French-speaking region of Belgium) will be built on an 11,000 m² (118,000 ft²) plot and will consist of a main building with a capacity for 1,000 worshippers, a library, a cafeteria and several shops.

Plans to build two 30 m (98 ft) minarets were scrapped after opposition from local residents. The new plan involves one 18 m (60 ft) minaret which will be automatically illuminated during calls to prayer.

The mayor of Liège, Willy Demeyer (PS), banned a protest march against the mosque that was to have been held on March 30. "My role is to avoid excesses and problems of public order," he said.

In Germany, Muslims in the northern city of Hamburg are converting the former Kapernaumkirche (Capernaum Church), a cultural heritage site, into a mosque.

In the southern German city of Munich, local politicians are debating where to build a massive mosque complex known as the Center for Islam in Europe-Munich (ZIE-M). The 6,000 m² (65,000 ft²) mega-project, which will cost an estimated €40 million ($51 million), is designed to be a key strategic platform for spreading Islam throughout Europe.

Speculation is rife that the Persian Gulf Emirate of Qatar will pay for the project, although the Qatari Ambassador to Germany recently told the newspaper Münchner Merkur that no final decision has been made.

The people with their heads up their a$$ think this is no big deal - just a harmless religion building places of worship.

Normal people know that this is not a religion, but a world-domination movement cleverly disguised as a religion.

In Germany, many of the new terror centers (aka “mosques”) are in the buildings of former churches. The Euros don’t seem to get the fact the muslims regard that as a sign of victory.

And this is so easy to stop. Create our own energy and lowball the muzzles out of the market. No money, no mosques.

That’s true, but unfortunately, many countries in Europe are headed by weak-kneed dhimmis who would sell away religious freedom in order to “make peace and accommodation” with muslims... while here in the U.S. we’re ruled by an outright and open supporter of radical islam.

Samaras says he wants to establish a mosque in Athens -- the only capital in European Union that lacks a state-backed place for Muslim worship -- in a bid to boost Greece's diplomatic hand vis-à-vis Turkey.

????

With a PM using logic like that no wonder Greece is floundering.

What do you expect when the Vatican keeps telling them that they worship the same god as the muslims ?

When you stand on the side of a bunch of lying Arabs who have hijacked the name of the Philistines (who were NOT Arabs) and you choose to stand against what is written God’s Word you can expect to be blinded and not see that you are committing suicide . Europe’s hatred of Israel is coming back to bite them in the tush .

You honestly think Euro-secularists listen to the Pope?

"What do you expect when the Vatican keeps telling them that they worship the same god as the muslims ?"

The Church teaches that there is only one God Who is the creator. Everything else is a creature or creation. That one God is the God of Abraham and all monotheistic belief systems derived from it, regardless of the degree of error, are worshiping the one God. That applies equally to our separated brothers and sisters, who err to a lesser degree, such as Baptists, Calvinists, Lutherans, and free-range Evangelicals such as the Calvary Chapelists.

Peace be with you

Guess you should be deporting the savages back to the desert, Willy.

On the positive side, these mosques will make great big targets when the time comes.

1000 worshippers? Why not.

Our parish church had that many seats, and held several masses each weekend.
