Muslims demand mosque near Leaning Tower of Pisa


Campaigners in Tuscany are fighting against a plan to build a mosque a few hundred yards from the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

They are concerned that it is too close to the stone tower, one of Italy’s best known tourist attractions, and fear that it could become a centre for radicalisation of local Muslims, of whom there are around 600.

The building of the mosque in Via del Brennero has been provisionally approved by Pisa’s centre-Left council but campaigners are gathering signatures for a petition calling for a local referendum on the issue.

  • If they can’t knock down the Leaning Tower of Pisa, they have to besmirch it?

    What douchebags!

    • They are bastards.

      • But I’ll bet they regret attempting to blow it up.

        “Ahmed, now that I think about it, putting a mosque there might be a good idea. I mean – location, location, location!”

    It will be so handy to have a tall, leaning tower right near the mosque for Friday afternoon’s sharia-blessed LGBTQ tossing day.

      My first thought, as well! 😉

    The Italians should build a pig farm between the tower and the mosque

  • Tell them to Pisa off!!

    This is what they do. If they can’t destroy or take over a Church, iconic building or monument that belongs to someone else then they try to build a gigantic mosque right beside it that is bigger and more imposing. Then anyone visiting the leaning tower will have to run a gauntlet of jihadis who are always milling about and may go cuckoo any minute and they will have to endure that deranged yodeling that comes from the mosques anytime they please. Let them build their mosque far, far away from the leaning tower maybe in Saudi Arabia for example.

      Where are they going to get the money to build this gigantic mosque? saudi arabia or qatar probably. Round up these 600 invaders and repatriate them back to wherever they came from.

    Should be easy enough to blow it up

    In Paris tourism had gone down dramatically thanks to Muslims turning much of Paris into a slum, using public streets to pray, targeting monuments and other popular tourist attractions for violent activity. If Italy wants to avoid what is happening in Paris they better not allow this or any other mosque to open or allow Muslims in large numbers to invade.
