| What’s the Matter with Sweden?

Jihad Watch : The latest sign of civilizational degringolade in Europe comes from the Swedish Department of Justice, in its hysterical reaction
to a Facebook posting by Christopher Larsson, who is the leader of the
Swedish Democrats — an islamocritical party — in Karlskrona City
Permission had been granted by the Swedish authorities for a local
mosque to have a muezzin chant the call to prayer from a minaret in
Karlskrona for the very first time. Larsson objected to this, for he
understood that the minaret is more than just an innocuous means for
broadcasting the call to prayer.
Thrusting skyward and lording it over
non-Muslim houses of worship, the minaret underscores the Muslim
presence, and is potent symbol of Islamic power. It stakes a claim; it
says to those non-Muslims forced to endure, five times a day, a raucous
call that begins with the first before sunrise, and the last after
sundown, that we Muslims are here to stay, we don’t care if our call
interferes with your sleep; our “rights” to have the call to prayer
broadcast outweigh your rights to sleep.
Erdogan famously once recited a poem, the Soldier’s Prayer, which
contains the line: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets,
the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.” Erdogan
understood perfectly that the minarets themselves deliver a bellicose
message of Islamic supremacism. And that’s why Muslims are so eager to
use these minarets, thrusting skyward and imposing ear-piercing azans on
Nowadays it is completely unnecessary to deliver
the call to prayer from minarets. Cell phones in universal use can now
be programmed to ring softly or vibrate, reminding their owners of the
times for prayer, without disturbing the Unbelievers. But that’s just
the point: Muslims want to have the call to prayer broadcast from the
minarets, even if, or especially if, it is no longer needed, to show the
Unbelievers whose claims now prevail.
