Ban On Street Prayers Comes Into Effect Across France

French Muslim leader calls for more mosques

Is there any other religion that resorts to mass street prayers as a weapon of intimidation? I cannot think of any others.

Speaking at a weekend gathering of French Islamic organisations, where participants asked for respect in the face of a rise in anti-Muslim attacks, Dalil Boubakeur said the 2,200 mosques in the country did not adequately represent Europe’s largest Muslim community.

“We need double (that number) within two years,” the head of the French Muslim Council and rector of the Paris mosque said in the town of Le Bourget near the capital.

“There are a lot of prayer rooms, of unfinished mosques, and there are a lot of mosques that are not being built,” he added Saturday at the Muslim gathering, billed as the largest in the Western world…

    Hostile Muslims don’t want more mosques — they like filling up the streets with butts saluting allah. Homegrown French wouldn’t see islams marking territory if they were out of sight inside a mosque building.

      The farts alone should have passersby running.

    Refusing to build mosques may encourage them to return home.

      So may demolishing those that stand.

      Only cutting Europe’s generous social assistance would encourage them to do that. They’re getting housed, fed and paid to turn Europe into the shithole they came from, what’s not to like?

    I’d probably prefer taxpayer funded, because Saudi and Qatari funding leads to Saudi and Qatari control.

      It wouldn’t matter who built them if the imams were held to the same hate speech standards as the rest of the population.

    More terror mosques = more Charlie Hebdo
