A Win for Mosquebusters in Uxbridge

MosqueBusters logoGavin Boby of Mosquebusters (the action arm of the Law and Freedom Foundation) has scored a resounding success in the English town of Uxbridge, just to the west of London. His organization’s actions helped convince the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association to pull its planning application for a new “community center” in Uxbridge.

Here’s the story from Mosquebusters:

Round one to us in Uxbridge!

In June 2011, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association lodged a confident planning application for a — you guessed it! — “community centre” in Uxbridge.

But there is already a community centre next door! We all know how Islam has always bent over backwards to promote wellbeing in the country it inflicts itself upon (whoops! I mean “enriches with its presence”!), but building a new community centre smack next door to an existing one is too much even by their standards. Surely the mosque outfit are not being coy about a mosque proposal?!

Given their confident tone, imagine our surprise when this application was pulled a week ago, and an appeal lodged for “non-determination”. The mosque outfit didn’t want to wait for the Council decision. Fancy that!

Could this have anything to do with the number of objections coming in against the application?

Just to recap: in 2010 the Muslim Association applied to turn the Hillingdon Irish Centre members club into a “community centre”. They withdrew that application rather than get a refusal. But they reapplied in June 2011, this time offering 2 extra car spaces!

Local people objected, and the Law and Freedom Foundation helped them. More local objections went to the Council Planning Department, and the mosque promoters have now taken matters out of the Council’s hands by going straight to appeal. And it’s a “written” appeal, i.e. nowhere for awkward locals to show up and express their points of view.

Technically, you don’t have to wait for a decision in order to appeal against it. But this is rare, especially after the application is still new — less than 3 months old. This mosque outfit didn’t like the reception they were getting, and with good reason.

Round 1 to us. If you want to help us win round 2, then please click here, and find out how to register your objections to the Appeal. Make sure you do it — even if they don’t read them, they count them!

Royal Lane is crowded and extremely vulnerable. The site lies between 3 schools on Royal Lane (Bishopshalt School,? Meadow Special School, and Meadow High School next door), and Hillingdon Hospital. Just look on Google Earth to see the parking restrictions — postcode UB8 3QU. Here’s the location:

Safe traffic flows are essential and will be harmed by the parking overspill that will result. The road surface is already under severe strain due to potholes caused by heavy traffic. This is the wrong proposal in the wrong place. Even before you take into account the congestion, disturbance, and general parking jihad that usually accompanies a mosque.

I understand that we must use every tool in our toolbox to stop the proliferation of Islamic culture in the west. However, it just seems pathetic to me that "parking" is the best argument for stopping yet another Islamic "cultural center.
Our elected representatives will not listen to us and so, we are forced to fight this battle on side issues rather than say what is really our argument. That is the destruction of our western culture on the alter of political correctness.
I hope the parking thing works out...

I concur, Babs. Islam should be confronted on the basis that it is pure evil with no redeeming aspects.
But any port in a storm, I suppose.

pplied to turn the Hillingdon Irish members club in to a "community centre."
And isn't this the end result of Islamist take over?
The Irish community center is no longer viable and in rushes the Islamists.
We would be better off wondering why the Irish community center is no longer feasible than wondering why the Islamists want to fill that void.

This is why Islam and the Left will always win against the Right: the Right's desparate need to win on principle rather than just to win, by any means, as they do.

When our focus is just winning, and turning any means at our disposal to forward that sole purpose, then we will see the tide begin to turn. Bravo Mosquebusters!

Hey, why not? Al Capone was busted for tax evasion. Maybe this is the way to go until the leftist useful idiots and spineless intelligentsia are put in their place.

This victory could also be partly related to one Muslim group not wanting another group in their area. The resident Muslim group may well have submitted the majority of the complaints.

Cheers to the mosque busters! the community centres are only developed by the muslim communities to advance and preach their religion that works against the idea of integration. It should be noted that Ahmediyya is a persecuted community in muslim countries and they do not preach hatred and violence. The fact that they withdrew applications might be because they have an attitude of consideration and respect of other faiths. Otherwise, Wahhabi and other sects don't care a damn about surrounding people's reservation and employ active deceit and hypocrisy to succeed in their mosque plan (eg ground zero mosque in New York).
However despite Ahmediyya being peaceful community, no mosques should be allowed to be built anymore in this country because still the idea of freedom and democracy is not prevalent in their doctrine and they believe in the right of religious clery to make laws of society rather than allowing a secular democracy to prevail.
