Poles Speak out Against Mosque Construction

It is good to see that more of us are waking up to the trouble that Islam brings to our countries. Europe is finally waking up, so lets add the Poles to the recent anti-Islam movements in Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK. Hopefully these protests will snowball across Europe.

Mosque Building Brings Islam Fears to Poland
Published: April 1, 2010

WARSAW (Reuters) – In a sight familiar in some west European countries but new to Poland, dozens of protesters demonstrated in a Warsaw suburb last weekend against the construction of a mosque.

Plans by Poland’s tiny Muslim community to build a place of worship and an Islamic cultural centre face opposition in a sign that concerns about Islam may be spreading eastwards to the staunchly Catholic European Union member.

Between 15,000 and 30,000 Muslims, many of them immigrants from Chechnya, live in Poland — the biggest ex-communist EU state where more than 90 percent of the 38-million population declare themselves Catholics.

Some 150 people protested at the half-finished building site, a 30-minute drive from the city centre, where the Muslim League, a religious organisation established in Poland in 2004 is building what will be only the country’s fifth mosque with government permission.

“Such centres are very often sources of radicalisation,” said one protester, who like most of the demonstrators was happy to be filmed but unwilling to give his name.

He brandished a banner depicting minarets as missiles that resembled a stark image used in a Swiss referendum when electors voted last year to ban new minarets.

Others chanted “Let’s not repeat Europe’s mistakes” and “Blind tolerance kills common sense,” and demanded that Muslim countries respect women’s rights and religious freedom.

“Look at what’s happening in Europe, I don’t want my daughter to be forced to wear a burka in the future,” a male protester said of the all-covering full-length veil which is the object of fierce debate in France.

A Belgian parliamentary committee voted this week to ban the wearing in public places of the burqa and the niqab, a similar garment in which only a woman’s eyes are visible.

“I lived in a town in Poland where there were Catholic churches, a synagogue and a mosque and that was fine. But if I go to Saudi Arabia, I cannot wear my medallion and churches where I could pray are banned,” said a woman demonstrator.


Such complaints are frequent in west European countries, which have seen an influx of Muslims in recent decades, making Islam the second faith in many. The Muslim population in Europe is estimated at 15-18 million, roughly one-third in France.

The late-2009 referendum in Switzerland was the starkest instance of a rejection of Islam, but Germany and France also have disputes over the construction of minarets and mosques, or the wearing of Muslim headscarves and veils.

“The problems seen in France, Germany or the Netherlands will come to Poland as it is modernising, catching up with the EU’s west and becomes more attractive to migrants from poorer parts of the world,” said Professor Zbigniew Mikolejko of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

“We will be getting many poor Muslims from North Caucasus. So these protests highlight a fear about the future, a potential conflict. There is no threat now of course, but it shows people expect this trouble to come,” he told Reuters.


“This fear comes from a lack of knowledge. There are countries where the assimilation of Muslims is working fine, like in Austria or Norway,” said Agata Skoworn-Nalborczyk, an Islam specialist at the Warsaw University.

“The average citizen knows a Muslim was behind the World Trade Centre attacks but doesn’t follow the differences within Islam. Poles have simplistic ideas about Islam as they lack their own experience with Muslims,” sociologist Mikolejko said.

Agata the “Islam specialist”, must be another puposely blind leftist. Muslims in Austria are just like Muslims across Europe, and this video footage from Norway, shows us just how well Muslims are assimilating there. Please try reality Agata.

Fortune Teller Faces Beheading in Saudi Arabia

Our Saudi “allies”, are giving us a glimpse of just how intolerant Islam really is. According to Islamic Law, sorcery is illegal. Maybe they are afraid of sorcery (fortune telling), because the fortune teller might tell people that Islam is a big lie.

From the “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”

Sacred Knowledge

a7.2 Unlawful knowledge includes:

(1) learning sorcery, since according to the most reliable position, it is unlawful, as the vast majority of scholars have decisively stated;

YUSUFALI: They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: “We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme.” They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah’s permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!

Fortune Teller Faces Beheading in Saudi Arabia

(April 1) — A popular Lebanese TV personality who hosted a show where he predicted the future and gave callers advice is awaiting execution in Saudi Arabia for witchcraft, his lawyer said this week.

Ali Hussain Sabat is the former host of a popular call-in show that aired on the Beirut-based satellite TV channel Sheherazade. On the show, he answered callers’ questions about the future and dispatched general advice on life questions.

Under Saudi Arabia’s strict interpretation of Islam, that’s considered sorcery — a crime punishable by death. The Saudi religious police burst into Sabat’s hotel room in the city of Medina in 2008 and arrested him while on a Muslim pilgrimage to the kingdom. A Saudi court convicted Sabat last year and sentenced him to death.

In Saudi Arabia, most executions are carried out by beheading the victim with a sword, often in a public square. They’re most commonly carried out on Thursdays, the last day of the work week there.

Sabat’s lawyer, May el-Khansa, told several news agencies Wednesday that she believes her client will be executed within 48 hours. She’s appealing to Lebanese authorities, including the country’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, to intervene.

“It is very important that we save the life of this one person,” el-Khansa told Agence France-Presse. “He is not a criminal.” She added that Sabat’s family is in shock and that his elderly mother is seriously ill, with doctors saying the stress of her son’s ordeal has brought her to the brink of death herself.

The 46-year-old Sabat is the father of five children.

UK: Govt has Funded the Spread of Islam

No, this is not an April Fools joke. Most of my readers know that I continually speak out against the “moderate” Islam is coming to the rescue fantasy. One of the reasons I say this, is because the infidel does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. In this article we learn that in their attempt to create some form of “moderate” Islam, the UK has wasted millions of dollars, and has actually helped Islam advance across the country. Here is a clue for the governments of the UK and USA. Stop funding Muslims!

The Prevent strategy: a textbook example of how to alienate just about everybody

The Government has spent millions of pounds on a strategy to prevent Muslim radicalisation that’s counterproductive, writes Douglas Murray.
By Douglas Murray
31 Mar 2010

As we are reminded on a daily basis, there is very little that government does well. Perhaps what it can do least well is theology.

Yet through its “Prevent” strategy, that is exactly what this Government has tried to do. In the past few years, it has spent millions of pounds trying to prevent Muslim radicalisation. But the effort was flawed from the outset and as the Communities and Local Government Select Committee warned yesterday, the efforts made could be backfiring.

The Prevent programme was set up after the 2005 London bombings as part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. Yet the security services already do counter-terrorism and are remarkably successful at it. So the purpose of Prevent was not only unclear, it was a classic example of government metastasizing.

It attempted to go far beyond what government could or should do. It aimed to tackle radicalisation by providing a “counter-narrative” to that of al-Qaeda and other extremist groups. And so, instead of teaching British values and beliefs and otherwise allowing the relevant authorities to enforce the law, Prevent got involved in attempting to create what one Imam recently described to me as “MI5 Islam”.

This meant that from the outset Prevent got bogged down in the interminable ongoing civil wars in the Islamic faith while doing little to tackle the real problems. It did not stop extremist speakers being given platforms at mosques and universities across the country, nor even, as it turned out, speaking at Prevent-sponsored events.

But it did become, predictably enough, a cash cow which any enterprising Muslim group could tap into. Government funding on what were called “key Prevent deliverables” in the period 2008-2009 alone was over £140 million. Much of this money went on things which were – at best – many steps away from dealing with what drives young Muslims into extremism.

Barking Mosque received more than £5,000 to provide rap “workshops” and lunches. Something called “Bedford: Faith in Queens Park” received £9,000 for its basketball club, another £10,000 for its cricket club and £11,000 for “fusion youth singing”. It received £1,350 for a talk on “prophetic medicine”. The Cherwell “Banbury Fair Trade Society” was paid by Prevent to deliver a “multicultural food festival”.

Across the country Prevent money went to boxing, karate, judo and five-a-side football clubs, while the 1st Bristol Muslim Scout Group bafflingly received £3,180 of Prevent money for camping equipment.

Most disturbingly of all, thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money was used not to stop fundamentalism, but simply to teach Islam. Just last year, one highly conservative Muslim organisation received two payments of £20,000 to proselytise for Islam.

It didn’t take long for other “community leaders” to realise something was deeply wrong. Why should only Muslim communities receive hundreds of millions of pounds? Say you were a Hindu boy-scout in your leaky tent at scout camp. Would you not wonder at the spanking new facilities enjoyed by your Muslim neighbour? Why have young Sikh, Buddhist or – imagine – white working-class youngsters not had ping-pong tables and karate lessons thrown in their direction?

Indarjit Singh, the Director of the Network of Sikh Organisations, made exactly this point when he spoke before the Committee of MPs. As Singh said, “rather than tackling underlying issues” Prevent is “producing a sense of victimisation among Muslims and a growing sense of resentment and marginalisation in other religious communities.”

This is exactly what some of us predicted would happen – that if you privileged the Muslim community it would not be long before other faith groups would notice and get aggrieved themselves. Britain should be rewarding ethnic and religious groups who integrate into British life. Instead we are doing the opposite.

It is a good job that the MPs heard Singh and a few others because otherwise their committee was notable for the fact that it listened to some people who can be alarmingly unhelpful. In fact, it constituted exactly the sort of people who have helped lead Britain into such a fragmenting mess. They included a Khomeinist group, the Islamic Human Rights Commission. They included professional race-relations industry “experts”, who have done so much to deform this country in recent years. And they included groups who gave glowing endorsements to Prevent precisely because they receive huge funding from the pot. The way the committee went about its procedures was a textbook example of how not to hear a broad range of views. So if it has landed on the right conclusions – including that it is very hard to see what good Prevent has done – it has done so for the wrong reasons.

The next government is going to have to make substantial cuts. There could be no better place to start than scrapping Prevent – to be remembered as a textbook example of how to alienate absolutely everybody.

Islam in Italy Conference=Plotting to Takeover Italy

I don’t know about you guys, but I consider all pro-Sharia Muslims the enemy. If it were up to me, they would not be allowed to assemble like this. Allowing them to assemble, plot, and recruit within our countries is equivalent to having a life-threatening disease, and doing nothing to prevent dying a slow death. Because that is what Islam is doing to life as we know it. It is slowly destroying Western Civilization.

Hat tip to Jihad Watch.


Date: Saturday 10th April 2010
Time: 1.45 pm – 4.30 pm
Venue: Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS

“Are they waiting for anything except the Hour to come to them
suddenly? But its Signs have already come!” (Al-Quran, 47:18)

As one of these signs, Imam Ahmad reports in his Musnad that
Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-‘As (ra) mentioned: “Whilst we were
around the Prophet (saw) writing he was asked, ‘Which of the
two cities will be opened first, Constantinople or Rome?’ He
(the Prophet Muhammad) answered, ‘The city of Heraclius will
be opened first!'”

The Great Ottoman, Sultan Muhammad Fatih (rh) fulfilled the
first part of this prophecy by conquering Constantinople.

Thus, remains the second part. Having been forced out of
Andalusia, and more recently, dispersed across the Balkan
states, the city of Gaius Julius Caesar (Rome) remains. So
let the da’wah begin …

There will be a short presentation on Islam in Italy by the
Association of Italian Muslim Sisters with proceeds going
towards supporting Italian Muslims. Also, enjoy a 3-course
home made Halal Italian buffet. The menu includes: Crodino,
Rustici, Pizza, Spiedini Tricolore, Pomodori al Tonno, Pasta
Primavera, Lasagne, Polpettone, Insalata di Patate, Tiramisu.
Entrance is by online booking and payment only. Tickets are
£20 for adults and £10 for children, but kindly no children
under the age of 10 years.

US Prison System Sued for Isolating Muslims

Here is we go again, our authorities try to protect us, and Muslims look to reverse policies by claiming discrimination. For the record, the Fort Hood terrorist Hasan also claimed discrimination.

US prison system sued for isolating Muslims

The US Bureau of Prisons is being sued for allegedly discriminating against Muslims by placing them in secret prisons where communication is severely restricted. The so-called “State-side Guantanamo” facilities are the targets of the case filed against the government by the Center for Constitutional Rights.

The US Federal prison system has two facilities, referred to as Communications Management Units (CMUs), where all correspondence and telephone calls to and from the inmates are monitored. The CMUs were set up during the Bush administration when authorities discovered that some Islamic militants were able to send messages abroad from their prison cells.

According the the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), the 76 inmates housed in the isolation units are there to prevent them from furthering acts of terrorism. But civil liberties advocates say the extreme conditions in the CMUs amount to abuse and that the programme violates the inmate’s constitutional rights.

The Center for Constitutional Rights filed a lawsuit against the government on Tuesday on behalf of five current and former inmates held in CMUs. The NGO argues that the inmates were held in extreme environments, that are not warranted given the nature of the crimes for which they were convicted.

Rachel Meeropol, a staff attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, says the conditions at the CMU’s are inhumane:

“…prisoners are being moved without explanation, and they’re subject to extremely restrictive conditions of confinement. The conditions include a lack of any physical contact with visiting family members or friends. Even when they have young children they cannot hold them or greet them.”

A lack of process
The Center for Constitutional Rights acknowledges that there may be some inmates who need to be isolated to prevent them from aiding in terrorism. But the group points out that the government still has an obligation to set out a transparent policy that outlines the process by which inmates are selected for placement in a CMU.

Critics of the programme say this lack of process makes CMUs ripe for discrimination. And the court papers filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights state that two-thirds of the CMU inmates are Muslims, a figure that over-represents the proportion of Muslim prisoners by more than 1000 percent. Ms Meeropol says the CMU programme flies in the face of US Constitutional legal precedence:

“…because of the lack of process, these units violate the Constitutional right to procedural due process, as well as amounting to cruel and unusual punishment. We’re also claiming that the units violate indvidual substantive due process rights and First Amendment rights to freedom of association.”

Finding a solution
Bureau of Prisons director, Harley Lappin, sounded resolute when he told a US congressional budget hearing that the CMUs had been set up in response to complaints from Congress that inmates were inappropriately communicating. Still, the BOP has announced that they will post unit rules in a few weeks and those regulations will be open to public discussion for 90 days.

But prisoner rights advocates say the BOP is still not doing enough to provide public review of the CMU programme. And Ms Meeropol believes there are only two ways in which the government can fix the situation:

“The Bureau of Prisons can either implement some level of process to ensure individuals are not being moved into these secretive units for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons… or [they can] scrap the units all together. We’re asking either that the CMUs be shut down or that they brought to meet Constitutional standards.”
