Turkish PM Erdogan quote “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it”

The next time you hear politicians or those in the media speak of  “moderate” Islam and “radicalised jihadists,” as though the two were unconnected, don’t believe a word of it. Listen instead to the words of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the present Prime Minister of Turkey, quoted in our title (and he ought to know!)

 

Then look at the following short video of the building of a mega-mosque in Maryland, USA.

Another mega-mosque is planned for Dublin’s fair city (subject to the go-ahead being given by the relevant authorities who will make their decision in July.)

Now, can anyone think of any reasons why the local populace should oppose the construction of these buildings?

  1. Susan. This post stinks of rank hypocrisy. You demand the right to follow your faith, and indeed impose its standards on civic society, yet you are trying to stop others being free to follow their faith, trying to encourage people to oppose the building of a place of worship!

    • Rob,
      When are you going to drop this ridiculous alias? Would you care to comment on the Turkish Prime Minister’s statement that there is no such thing as “moderate” Islam?
