Nunavut: Walls raised on Iqaluit’s mosque

The walls are going up on Iqaluit’s mosque. The Islamic Society of Nunavut has been working to build a place of worship in Iqaluit since 2009.

This week, the first wall went up as the winds picked up. It took 28 people to lift the wall in 40 km/h winds, said Syed Asif Ali, the society’s president.

Ali was in Chicago when it happened, but was moved by the photos…

    Ah, yes. Hit the soft targets. How long before native Canadians show up with suicide vests in Syria.

    OMG!!! Little Mosque on the Tundra. Is whale meat halal?

    Just what the Great White North has always needed – a $600,000 terrorist recruitment centre.

      I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Gas huffers are only a threat to themselves.

      The Saudis probably bankrolled this as a practical joke.

        That’s funny as all get out!

        I, on the other hand, think this is alarming, but the alarms went off 15 years ago.

        This is the expansion of the footprint of the Ummah, nothing less. Under Islamic law, once a land is held by Muslims, it is to be that way forever. A mosque is first and foremost a victory statement.

        We know the money comes from abroad, as do the people carrying Islam/hatred in their hearts.

          Que sera sera.
          The Moes would be nothing, they would have no power at all if moronic narcissistic soccer moms weren’t psychologically locked into pissing-off-daddy mode, and Big Government wasn’t running interference for them.

          People tolerate feminism/Big Gay/multiculturalism because they’re well fed and relatively content. When the big economic collapse comes, when people are cold and starving, when there’s nothing left to lose, all that Marxist kaka will be instantly ejected and things will get very nasty very quickly.

    They are like cockroaches infesting every place where people live. There is no way there would be enough Muslims living there to warrant a mosque and certainly not enough to finance it. So where is the money for it coming from? Three guesses and the first two do not count.

      I was up there around 6 years ago and you would be shocked how many muslims there are at the time I was there the muslims population was about 150.

        As most of the jobs are government jobs of one level or another then they must be working in some government job. What could possibly go wrong. I have now reached the point when it comes to Muslims of believing that none is too many.

    “It took 28 people to lift the wall…”

    How many to screw in a light bulb?

    So why don’t they all starve to death when Ramadan occurs during the summer?

      I think they are supposed to use the timing of a location further south to avoid such an occurrence. If I am not mistaken, I thought Minicapt indicated they would use Edmonton time in a previous post.

        Why are they adding to Qu’ran what Allah did not put there? Allah is omnicient, so would have known about the 24 hours of sun in the far north. He did not leave exceptions for the far north.

    There goes the neighbourhood!

      I doubt it was much of one to begin with, but I do agree that this is not good news.
