What the naive, multicultural loons from the left ignore, is the simple fact that every mosque is a claim for territory and Islamic domination. Needless to mention that this mosque, like so many others before it, is being forced on Â residents and any resistance is being criminalized.

After a decade of work, Canberra’s newest mosque has been approved for a site in the north suburb of Gungahlin.
The mosque will be built on Valley Avenue and will include a community centre and car parking area.
Construction is scheduled to start in April with the building to feature Australian-inspired architecture to blend into the area.
Osman Adam from Belconnen’s Islamic Society says Canberra’s Islamic community is growing.
He says the new mosque will cater for more than 1,000 Muslims.
“Currently in Gungahlin we don’t have a place. You want to have a wedding ceremony, if you want to have a naming ceremony, a big party, there’s no location around the north Canberra,” he said.
“The Belconnen and Gungahlin districts have the largest number of Muslim concentration in Canberra but currently in the north we need a place.”
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope says the mosque is a great addition for the Islamic community in Canberra.
“This is in addition to the other two major centres of the Islamic community, the mosque in Yarralumla and the centre in Tuggeranong,” he said.
