London’s Mega-Mosque: “Recruiting Ground for Al Qaeda”

“Muslims themselves oppose this mosque.” — Asghar Bukhari, Spokesperson, UK Muslim Public Affairs Committee

A radical Islamic group has applied for a permit to build one of the largest mosques in the world, in London.

The East London super-mosque, known as the Abbey Mills Riverine Center, would hold up to 10,000 worshippers. It would be the largest religious building in Britain and the largest mosque in Europe.

By comparison, Britain’s largest cathedral, the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool, can hold no more than 3,000 worshippers, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, one of the iconic features of the London skyline, has a capacity of 2,500.

The 16-acre site near the Olympic Village in West Ham in the London Borough of Newham would include two 40-foot minarets, an Islamic library, a dining hall, tennis courts, sports facilities, eight apartments for visiting Muslim clerics and hundreds of parking spaces (photos here).

Much of the funding for the super-mosque, which will cost an estimated £100 million ($160 million), is expected to come from Saudi Arabia.

The project to build a “contemporary Islamic sacred space” is so massive in scale that critics believe the mega-mosque is actually a smokescreen for an ambitious plan to establish a hardline Islamic enclave in East London.

The construction plans have been submitted by Tablighi Jamaat, a controversial Muslim missionary movement with roots in India. Tablighi Jamaat, which in English means “Society for the Spreading of the Faith” or “Proselytizing Group,” is the largest group of religious proselytizers of any faith in the world.

Tablighi Jamaat is active in Southwest and Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe and North America, and has contributed to the explosive growth of Islamic religious fervor and conversion around the world.

Although Tablighi Jamaat promotes itself as open and socially integrated, and strives to project a non-threatening image, after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, members of the group were accused of having ties to Muslim terrorist organizations.

    The 16-acre site near the Olympic Village in West Ham in the London Borough of Newham would include two 40-foot minarets, an Islamic library, a dining hall, tennis courts, sports facilities, eight apartments for visiting Muslim clerics and hundreds of parking spaces.

    What about a sewing factory for the suicide vest or advanced detonater or rocket making labs?
    I also see no public stoning facilitites, no ant-west media center, or no barnyard sleeping facilities.
    The US should also help commemorate this facility on opening day with our advanced seal team demolition crew once its sold out.

    You Brits allow this then you got everything coming to you that you deserve.

    They’ll get their sooper mosque. I bet the minarets will look like the ones on the sooper mosque in Cologne:

    Which look suspiciously like the “Tower of Voices” at the Flight 93 memorial.

    And what is a minaret, if not a tower of voices?

    We are being sold out a few acres at a time by the elites.

    I bet Tommy Robinson is still rotting in jail amongst the Muslim filth.

    UM HELLLLOOOOO… Even Steven is on the right track! I unequivocally support the construction of this Mosque, as long as it doesn’t recieve any money whatsoever from the US Govt/Taxpayers… NONE! In fact, I say build it bigger! Put in more bells and whistles. Add a massive nuclear weapons facility, a Muslim-only Luxury Resort, an exotic animal zoo, and a collection of the worlds most expensive cars, and other “World’s Most Expensive” things!!! Let the goat humping inbreds spend every freaking “dollar” they have on it! And on it’s opening day, let it be filled with thousands and thousands of ass-lifters!!! AND THEN… Like Even Steven said, drop however many Bunker-Bustin, Daisy-Cutting, Islamotrash-disintegrating marvels of American military ingenuity it takes to send every last one of them into the black abyss of nothingness where their “prophet” and non-existent god dwell… HollaBurackbar

    Let them build it, fill it during rama-lama-ding-dong and then get 20 terminally-ill people to hijack Iranian, Pakistani, and Royal Saudi airplanes and fly the planes into the mosque.

    Then hack into the hamas computers and take credit for it.
