‘Muslims in Sweden have applied for permission to broadcast the call to prayer, claiming the move would boost community self-esteem and assist with integration.’
(That means integrating Swedes into Islam.)
Wonder if the good Bishop realizes that the Pact of Umar – how Muslims treat conquered Christians & Jews – forbids the ringing of church bells or blowing of the shofar?
Bishop Fredrik Modéus writes on Facebook that it is “natural” that “different traditions and religions are heard” and that he “hopes to hear both church bells and prayer calls in our city.”
And maybe he will, for awhile. But once the Muslims of whom he is so solicitous are in charge, he won’t be hearing the church bells anymore. In Islamic law: dhimmis are “forbidden to openly display wine or pork…to ring church bells or display crosses…recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays” (Reliance of the Traveller, o11.5(6)).
