Sweden: Mosque to Blast Prayer Calls from Minaret
gatestoneinstitute.org ^ | Oct. 1, 2012 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 10/01/2012 12:44:38 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A mosque in Stockholm has received initial approval to begin sounding public prayer calls from its minaret, the first time such permission has ever been granted in Sweden.

A majority of the members of the city planning committee in the southern Stockholm suburb of Botkyrka voted on September 25 to repeal a 1994 prohibition on such prayer calls, thereby opening the way for a muezzin to begin calling Muslims to prayer from the top of a 32-meter (104-foot) minaret at a Turkish mosque in the Fittja district of the city.

The issue was put to a vote after Ismail Okur, the chairman of the Botkyrka Islamic Association (Islamiska föreningen i Botkyrka), filed a petition with the city in January demanding permission to allow public prayer calls at the mosque.

In an interview with the Swedish newspaper Dagen, Okur said earlier generations of Muslim immigrants "did not dare" to press the issue, but that he represents the "new guys" who are determined to "exercise their right to religious freedom" in Sweden.

Okur said: "We have lived our whole lives in Sweden. We have paid taxes. We have been exemplary citizens. We have given a lot to Sweden. Now we want to get a little back. Now we want to have religious freedom."

Ring every church bell in the town at that time.
If they have civil defense sirens, set the time for a weekly test for then too.

Two comments:
(1) The Stockholm guys should have contacted their oppos in Malmo and Gothenburg first.
(2) Why do these moslems ‘deserve something in return’?

Jens Orback, Minister for Democracy, Metropolitan Affairs, Integration and Gender Equality from the Social Democratic Party said during a debate in Swedish radio in 2004 that “We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so towards us.”

In 2004, Mona Sahlin, Minister for Democracy, Integration and Gender Equality, was quoted as saying that “A concerted effort that aims at educating Swedes that immigrants are a blessing to their country must be pursued,”

The Swedish government are essentially conducting slow-motion genocide.

Be a shame if a bunch of car horns happened to go off at the same time, drowning out the noise.

People continue to walk around with blinders???

Get some d___ gumption and just say ‘NO!’

Sweden is a warning to all who let this abomination happen in the first place (too many Muslim immigrants), or to continue happening if already ‘established.’
And not restricting mosque-building.

And - WAKE UP AMERICA!

Islam has stated plainly they are to rule the world. No matter what it takes. Doesn’t need to be ‘by the sword.’
Peaceful, simple infiltration of all agencies local and national, is on the rise.

After 9-11, I now believe what I hear - - -

To do otherwise is to be at peril.

No normal person will be able to stand the noise. Complaining will get you called racist.

More information on the gang rapes by muslim immigrants of Swedish women and CHILDREN.

http://cofcc.org/2011/02/immigration-turns-sweden-into-rape-capitol-of-europe/

“It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid, in an interview about a gang rape involving a Swedish girl and immigrant perps. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f**ked before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important that she retains her virginity… It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore… girl, I mean;” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f**ked to pieces.”

No derogatory remarks please unless you are dead sure that the same will not happen in the USA.

Considering the rapid spread of islam in the US and considering the silence of the lambs (read: congresscritters) you can soon expect to hear that noise 5 times per day.

Don’t think I’ve heard that. Wouldn’t be surprised. Have to do what it takes right now - - -
Norway also has it’s own ‘interesting’ horde of
Muz immigrants. Spouce’s now-deceased parents were both from there.

Except for this country, maybe, Muz immigrants elsewhere are REAlly bad news, and will be so here if not aware - - - or by those who don’t care - - -

Seems they tend to end up in areas of the U.S. not as strict with local laws governing EVeryone, as
other regions/states/cities.

Such a pushy bunch!

It’s interesting that this is taking place in Botkyrka, which means “cure church.”

Okay, that’s it. I used to feel a little sorry for the Swedes when I read reports of the violence and property damage caused by rioting muslims in Sweden. Then I felt bad when I read reports of the insane increase in rapes there during the last couple of decades. But if the Swedish government wants to placate these heathens, all sympathy is gone. I won’t bother reading any more articles about how bad things are there. Quite frankly, I don’t care.
