*Â From the UK to Germany, from Holland to USA, from Italy to Australia: everywhere residents are organizing against the spread of Islamic command centres:
Campaigners are calling on Prime Minister Gordon Brown to intervene in controversial plans to build a new mosque and community centre.
Residents angered by Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s decision to rent a plot of land in Shelton to Muslim developers for just Â£1 a year, amid suggestions it could be sold to them for Â£72,000, have launched an online petition.
They want the Prime Minister, pictured, to order a full public inquiry into the handling of the mosque development, in Regent Road, Shelton, which they claim does not make financial sense.
Malcolm Davis, former councillor for St James’ ward, says his phone has been ringing off the hook with residents complaining about the planning inspector’s decision to overturn the council’s rejection of the scheme.
The authority had thrown out the plans to create a mosque and community centre on derelict land in Hall Street.
The matter will now go to a public inquiry in June.
February 17, 2008 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The Islamic Center of Boca Raton [ICBR] broke ground on an ambitious Islamic center on February 16. The planned 30,000 square foot structure was designed to vaguely replicate the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
The ICBR has long been the subject of counter-terror researchers, including Joe Kaufman who detailed in a 2003 article, “Boca Raton City of Terror” the activities of numerous radical Muslims in the community, including those of then ICBR imam Ibrahim Dremali:
“In October of 2000, Dremali spoke at a rally where Israeli flags were burned and slogans, such as “With jihad we’ll claim our land, Zionist blood will wet the sand,” were shouted. Dremali told the crowd “not to be sad for those who were martyred and to not be afraid to die for what they believe in,”
The Islamic Center of Boca Raton continues to present a danger to the community. Concerned citizens should contact City Hall and Mayor Steven Abrams office and demand that the construction of a mosque with multiple documented ties to terrorism be halted on the grounds of national security.
