Reader comment on: London Rejects Plan for Mega-Mosque

Projects of this nature cannot be allowed. Integration is an urgent need facing mankind but it requires compromise, which is impossible to achieve when followers of a religion believe in the total infallibility of their beliefs. In Islam there is only the will of their god, which is why democracy, as we in the West understand it, will always be impossible to administer. If we do not continue to fight the relentless expansion of this proselytizing faith, Britain will become a Muslim state within 50 years, after which an inevitable descent into petty sectarian rivalries, with attendant violence and murder, will surely follow. Beliefs divide people, and allowing projects such as this to succeed will emphasize and reinforce divisions in society that are already running dangerously high.

What we are witnessing is Israel engaged in a struggle against Hamas, against Palestinians, against Arabs, against Muslims, and against an expanding body of opinion in the West that is less and less inhibited from displaying the rancid anti-Semitism behind its support for those who openly call for another Holocaust for the Jews.
Gaza was returned to the Palestinians in 2005 as a test for building trust.
This verse [31:27 ] means that no one Muslim should claim that he has a monopoly over the reading of the Quran, for that would amount to reducing the majesty of God to the smallness of man.
The sound of battle is louder than the call to prayer.
by Khaled Abu Toameh
Evidently Abbas has reached the conclusion that unless he hurries up and declares his support for the Palestinian "resistance" in the Gaza Strip, his people will march on his office and force him to quit. Abbas's fear of a revolt has driven him into the open arms of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
Another reason for the unexpected change in Abbas's policy might be the promise of financial aid he received from Qatar -- an enemy of Egypt's al-Sisi, but the largest funder of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
Abbas know that if he wants to survive, he will have to be on the side of the radicals.

There is no change in U.S policy toward Israel that will win any true allies in the Middle East, despite what Arab leaders claim. They often assert that if only we would solve the Palestinian-Israeli problem first, relations would improve. This is a tactic. These leaders employ it simply to divert Western officials from making demands on them, instead of on Israel. The reality is that most Arabs view the U.S., its European allies and Israel with ineradicable contempt.
