Israeli police raze mosque amid protests
The mayor said residents built the mosque before they had permits.
However, he said, a “mosque is not something you can demolish, instead you can grant permits.”
The mayor said resolving the issue through dialogue was better than razing the mosque.
“Demolitions bring only trouble,” he said.
Residents protested the demolition and threw stones at the police, who used rubber bullets to disperse them, he said.
“This will only encourage the extremists,” the mayor said. “We want to live in peace together. We don’t want trouble, the aim is to prevent more destruction.”
This is about 100 times as stupid as that Koran burning fool.
Additionally, before the usual suspect start screaming “anti-semite!” please realize that this mosque wasn’t even built by Palestinians or some other “enemy” but by Muslim citizens of Israel that are “socially and economically disadvantaged with the lowest income in the country”.
