* Will be interesting to see how this will play out: when it comes to regular Australians nothing is sacred. Even in the face of overwhelming opposition the Muslim invaders Â succeeded in getting a schoolÂ approvedÂ by the Gold Coast Â City Council.
Plans to build a mosque in the Swan Valley have upset Nyoongar elders who claim the Caversham land is a sacred site and has been protected under the Aboriginal Heritage Act since 1984.Â
In a submission to the City of Swan, 45 elders and traditional owners of the area have called on the Bosnian Islamic Society to build their 1277sq m mosque somewhere else “where it will not offend the religious beliefs of the indigenous people and original owners of the Swan Valley”.Â
“That section of land is a burial ground, very important to blackfellas. Our people were massacred there,” they say.Â
The mosque plan is expected to go to the council in the next couple of months.
