UK: the screaming minarets of Oxford

How many mosques does Oxford need?

The row blew up after the Oxford Central Mosque said it would apply to the city council for permission to broadcast the call to prayer from loudspeakers in the minaret in a newly built mosque, three times a day. The sound is familiar to anyone who has visited any part of the Muslim world, but in Britain it is rare, even in those cities with a high concentration of Muslims.

For the moment, the Oxford Central Mosque has said it is going to delay the request for planning permission. The new mosque, in Manzil Way, east Oxford, is still under construction, and will not be finished until the end of the year.

Allan Chapman, a devout Christian who is leading the campaign against the call to prayer, was relieved by the delay, which he attributed to the opposition from local residents.

“If there hadn’t been hell and fury we would have had this place wailing away already,” he said. “The opposition to this brings together people who on paper are totally apart. It links true blue Tories who go to church with ex-Marxists who don’t believe in God. We see it as naked Islamic imperialism. The community around the mosque is very Christian and European.

“The call to prayer is a sound many people find menacing. It’s redolent of things they don’t want to think about. It’s also a form of preaching. It will destroy the cohesion of a very well integrated community.”

He added: “What has angered people – and it has absolutely screamingly angered many people – is when we see Anglican clergymen overtly supporting Islam. We’re totally staggered. It’s being a traitor to the job description of their employment.”

And the Muhammedans lie in your face, as always:

Mr Rana denied that Oxford’s Muslims wanted to force their religion on anyone. He said: “In Spain, Muslims ruled for 800 years, but they didn’t make everybody Muslims. Islam doesn’t allow us to force anybody [to convert].

“In Pakistan, the bell rings in Christian churches. We never object. There is a tradition in Islam that we issue a call to prayers. It’s a very beautiful sound. I don’t believe most people will object.”

Bunglawussy Watch:

The comical ‘Mr. Bean’ lookalike Inayat Bunglawussy of the MCB praises the idotic attempts of Britains home secretary, Jacqi Smith, who tries to put lipstick on a pig by not calling Islamic Terrorism by its name, as if  the beast could be appeased.

Jacqui Smith:

“… there is nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief. Indeed, if anything, these actions are ‘anti-Islamic’.”

This charade would be hilarious if it wasn’t so pathetically stupid and dangerous. 

If its any consolation, read the comments: nobody’s buying any:

  1. i would suggest that if the muslims want to know when it’s time to prey they purchase a watch…. there’s no need to have a call to preyer in this day and age.

  2. * frakked … when it’s time to prey they purchase a watch …

    They could get a SMS reminder on their mobiles (when they aren’t being used to
    trigger “devices”).

  3. Someone should inform the bigwigs about something called noise pollution. Where I live you’re not supposed to make loud racket between 10PM and 7AM (music, snow blowers, lawn mowers, etc.) because of a local ordinance. Time for Oxford to pass something similar and if such an ordinance is already on the books then it needs to be dusted off and used.

  4. WTF? They can’t remember the prayer times? Don’t they repeat at the same times on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis? The call to prayer is simply a reminder to the populace that shitslam intends to rule. Call to prayer, my ass!

  5. Jacqui (i walk the streets alone at night) Smith,says muslim terrorists are ‘ anti-islamic ‘

    I suppose Hitler must have been anti-facist!

  6. ” Too bad that many posts are being deleted….”

    Kinda like this blob really, xxxx! Stop whining about free speech and try practicing what you whine.

  7. ” Too bad that many posts are being deleted….”

    Or being blocked. Or being censored. Obviously “muhammad worshipers” doesn’t like free speech.

    At least Darrin Hodges has the balls to put his name and face to his comments. You’re are just a pathetic middle aged flatus.

  8. The hypocrites are always screaming “free speech” at the top of their lungs, but it just means free to slag off others. Nazi’s always talk about freedom, the half witted chimpanzee behind this blog is no different. The only difference is he is goose stepping on the other side of the fence this time, a poor man’s Goebbels for all to laugh at.
