What do you think about the construction of mosques in big European and American cities. Is it a right to build a mosque if there is a private owned estate?



Under present laws, building mosques on private property are fully protected. Do I like even so much as one more mosque built anywhere in the world? No, I do not. However, private property rights prevail.


" private property rights prevail"

This is NOT true..if it effects and bleeds into the rights of the public - and away from the private property.

AN example is the 5 calls to prayer- 7 days a week - STARTING AT 3:35 A.M. - going into late at night.

This infringes on the rights of others.

And a good lawyer - bevy of lawyers can use that and other examples from islam to stop a mosque being built.



I sincerely hope you are right.


i could not agree more. the religion of islam is not a religion it is form of social government that is to be advanced in anyway jihadists see fit. ship the bastards off. islam itself is a terrorist organization. reading the quaran proves that. i for one refuse to be intimadated and will freely speak my mind and do with every oppurtunity. also i would be more than willing to bear arms to defend my rights. in short take your islam the hell out of the usa. we should amend the constitution just for these fanatics and ban islam in all democratic states through out the world.

The central problem is that Christians do not see this from the radicalized Muslim perspective and radicalized Muslims do not see it from the Christian perspective (contrary to your assertion and the assertions of radicalized Muslims, most Muslims are not radicalized).

According to the radicalized Muslim perspective, Islam came AFTER Christianity and is somewhat of a reaction to it in that Muslims view Christians as attempting to convert them. As such, they view their duty as being one to resist. Since Christians are viewed as following a corrupted religion (not false, but corrupted, according to Islamic doctrine), the first reaction of radicalized Muslims was to try to "save" the Christians from themselves (not all that different from the missionary perspective of Christians). However, failing in that attempt, radicalized Muslims go one step further: they then attempt to kill those who will not convert (actually, not all that different from the perspective of those who would seek to have Muslims eliminated in reaction to radicalized Islamic terrorism). Since corruption of the religion must have come from evil forces, it is natural to want to destroy the evil. Hence, make war, not peace. There can, after all, be no compromise with evil.

On the other hand, Christians, believing that Muslims are misguided, simply want to try to convert them. But they do not realize that the Muslims do not simply see the Christians as being misguided but rather guided by evil (even though I doubt you will ever find a Muslim who will admit this). Compromise with evil is not possible. It must be destroyed. Please note that such a position is also taken by God in the Biblical Old Testament. It also is the position taken by Ayn Rand.

Whether or not Christianity is evil or Islam is evil cannot be judged completely objectively by both sides. Obviously, evil sees itself as good. Good sees itself as good. However, in truth, it does not matter which side is evil and which side is good except to determine which side will eventually triumph. The fact is that the two sides are mutually incapable of co-existing.

So yes, Islam may very well be a terrorist organization from the perspective of Christians. However, Christians must realize that radicalized Muslims views Christianity EXACTLY the same way.

Do you people not know that there is a difference between the "radical" Muslims and just plain old Muslims, I live on the same street of the only mosque in my town and I never get disturbed by their morning prayers. The word Islam is derived from the word peace in Arabic, they are a peaceful religion, it's that some are extremists and they are the only ones you hear about.
Christianity and Islam came from the same thing, they have the same stories practically, you know the one where god tells soemone to go sacrifice their only son, and at the last moment god said stop and got them to sacrifice a goat instead.
Anyway part the reason for Muslim terrorists is that we were so bad to them and somewhere somewhere there's a thing that says that Christians will never accept Islam, and your fitting perfectly into that stereotype. In the days of Muhammad (pbuh) the Christians came to challenge Islam, but they had no place to pray, so Muhammad (pbuh) said they could pray in their mosque, and so they did. A generic follower of Islam is not a terrorist, a mosque isn't a bomb factory. So ii hate to tell you guys, that the religion we were all brought up on, whether we are religious or not is probably the most arrogant of them all and has the least imagination. Oh and by the way I ACTUALLY felt physically sick whilst reading that article thing.


It is for sure to see on these days the ZIONISTs talking about Islam. islam is a universal Religion for Everyone not for me nor for you. It is protected by the One ( the only one) who created the Universe the GOD the GOD for humans, animals, living and non lviing things. and He sent to us to practice.

    So far, Muslims have their greatest victory over us by making us shift into defensive living with regard to them. We tread with fear of "offending" them, of inciting world-wide riots by Muslims against us, and of always trying to curry favor with irrationalists. We used to go about life, guided by our own thoughts and desires, and no defensiveness. It is our fault that we let them dominate our behavior. STOP IT! Americans do not live defensively! Let savages fear us!
