Absolutely necessary. Why, imam? Why must we adopt “Islamic values?”
“Islamic Values” like stoning for adultery, amputation for theft, polygamy, concubinage, child-marriage, slavery, the subjugation of women, and all the other stipulations of the Sharia?

Spain Goes on Mosque-Building Spree
Churches Forced to Close (Hudson New York)
The city of Barcelona, widely known as a European Mecca of anti-clerical postmodernism, has agreed to build an official mega-mosque with a capacity for thousands of Muslim worshipers. The new structure would rival the massive Islamic Cultural Center in Madrid, currently the biggest mosque in Spain. An official in the office of the Mayor of Barcelona says the objective is to increase the visibility of Muslims in Spain, as well as to promote the “common values between Islam and Europe.”
The Barcelona mosque project is just one of dozens of new mosques that are in various stages of construction across Spain. Overall, there are now thirteen mega-mosques in Spain, and more than 1000 smaller mosques and prayer centers scattered across the country, the majority of which are located in Catalonia in northeastern Spain.

A private letter written by an eyewitness to the bishop of León only six days after the event recorded the scene. (Vlad Tepes has more)
