Anti-Muslim group makes bid to stop planned £17.5m mosque in Cambridge
Here we go again. *SIGH*
A protest group has been criticised for a legal application to stop a £17.5 million mosque being built in Cambridge, in which they claimed it could be “a front for terrorism”.
Stephen Gash, of Stop Islamisation Of Europe (SOIE), and Sareeta Webra, founder of Sikhs Against Sharia (SAS), made an application for a Cambridge County Court injunction to prevent the mosque in Mill Road being built.
The application calls for a “court injunction to be served against the Muslim Academic Trust for construction of a mega-mosque”.
The campaigners claim the planning consultation was not conducted “lawfully”.
And the application adds: “It is well documented that many so-called Muslim charities are fronts for Islamic terrorism and that several of those cited are based in the United Kingdom.” […]
Amidst her ugly fear mongering, Ms. Webra adds:
Ms Webra claims building the mosque could see Cambridge “fall to Islam”. […]
“I am myself a believer in Jesus Christ the Saviour and have become so without in any way abandoning my Sikhism and love for the Khalsa.
This is something that I’m sure Ms. Webra knows full well is equally true of Muslims, who revere Jesus (a.s.) and have an entire chapter of the Qur’an named after his mother, yet she disingenuously neglects to mention it. I guess she must’ve also missed the Hukams about not giving false testimony, uttering bitter statements, or engaging in slander, gossip or spite.
This all feels very much like a redux of the ridiculous Ground Zero Mega Mosque of Terror hysteria that occurred in the summer of 2010. Being that SOIE has close ties with Pamela Geller’s anti-Muslim hate group SIOA, I’m not at all surprised that the EDL is involved as well. I’m sure that if Geller and her seemingly ever-present cohort in hatred, Robert Spencer, hadn’t been banned from entering UK last year, they’d be right there baying at the front of the pack in encouragement.
Planning permission was granted in 2012 for the three-storey domed building on the site of the former Robert Sayle warehouse.
It will boast a prayer hall with capacity for 1,000 people, a café and teaching rooms, plus a library, a mortuary, and a large public garden.
But the plans have sparked controversy and the English Defence League has held a march and a rally in the city against the mosque. Vandals also targeted the building site after the Boston Marathon bombings. Graffiti artists daubed offensive messages on the hoardings.
Oh, here’s a virtual reality tour of the “triumphalist mosque” the Muslims of Cambridge plan to build to carry out their wicked plans. Terrifying. //
