Perth Says “No Mosque!”

This is a refreshing change of pace, demonstrating that Islamization is not an inevitable, pre-ordained outcome, at least in Australia.

The authorities in Western Australia didn’t address the nature of a mosque, which functions as a beachhead for the Islamic invasion. Every article about a proposed mosque should quote Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.”

However, the argument that the mosque would “detrimentally affect the existing rural amenity of the locality” is a good strategy. Most mosques in most Western locales could be barred using the same standard. An honest assessment would recognize that the only neighborhoods not “detrimentally affected” by the addition of a mosque would be those that are already thoroughly Islamized.

From New Kerala:

Perth, May 31: Australian State Administrative Tribunal has rejected an appeal to run a mosque on grounds of detrimental effects of noise in southern suburbs of Perth.

Ruling out the proposal for running a mosque, it said a solid boundary wall surrounding a mosque would be needed to mitigate noise impacts. However, such a wall would take away the serenity of the area.

The tribunal said the mosque’s activities would be “unusual”, resulting in an “undesirable impact ... incompatible with retaining the local character and amenity” of the area, The West Australian News reports.

The Islamic community wanted to run the mosque at a property which was previously used to train horses on Valcan Road, Orange Grove in Perth.

The property, located in a rural area, is surrounded by paddocks and pastures.

The City of Gosnells’ council had earlier also rejected the application saying the mosque was not appropriate for the area and that the traffic and noise generated “would have the potential to detrimentally affect the existing rural amenity of the locality”.

Congrats to the Aussies. But we'll all take a giant step forward when a local government bans a mosque because it contradicts democratic values and human dignity.

Funnily enough I live in the southern suburbs of Perth and this is the first time I've heard about it! But, yes, Australia does stand up to Islam much more than other countries.

One problem, though, is that mosques tend to only be allowed to be built in slummy industrial areas, and this tends to cause muslims to move to these areas where they all bring each other down. But there's really no answer to that one, except to keep doing what we're doing - deconstructing Islam for non-muslims, and ministering to muslims.

Same here, Blogger: I live in Perth as well and there's ZILCH in today's paper! It'll be interesting to see if anything is on the news tonight ...

Good on ya, City of Gosnells!

I'd like to see mosques banned because they are buildings used by enemy subversives.
