Portugal to Pay 3 Million Euros for New Mosque in Lisbon

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hat tip Amigo de Israel. Translation by Fousesquawk.

The government of  Portugal is spending 3 million euros of the taxpayers’ money toward the construction of a new mosque in downtown Lisbon. A lot of people are unhappy about it. What’s worse, the defenders of the project including the government and those ubiquitous fact-checkers are refuting charges that the government is spending 3 million euros for the construction of a mosque. Part of the 3 million euros is for expropriating the land from residents who live in buildings which are to be demolished.

Oh, those fact-checkers.

The below article from the Portuguese blog, Amigo de Israel, is translated by Fousesquawk. There is a video in this article, and we are working on English subtitles.

*Update: Here it is:


 Note: In paragraph 4 of the written article below; ……”One of the ways to feed fanaticism, aside from being in the same space, is the construction of religious symbols and temples……that are already being demolished in various countries of Europe.“  This must refer to Christian churches that are being demolished in Europe. I am assuming that the …… space contains some information that makes this clear. The countries cited are hardly demolishing mosques.

Spending manias of the PS (Socialist Party) and Costa exemplified here, always above the law and national interest.

(Prime Minister) Antonio Costa, still in the Lisbon Chamber, donated 3 million (Euros) to construct a mosque at Mouraria, but the dictatorship of lies and of the fact-checkers say that is false because the 3 million were not just for the mosque, but also to expropriate (the property) from the people who live on the land which the Chamber wants to offer to the Muslim community.

Lying fact-checkers, at the service of the corrupt. The Portuguese are indignant and frightened by the news around the world outside the Islamic ghettoes, where, people-fanatics of the same religion and anti-Christian, anti-Western spirit- are often united together.

Portugal pretends that it wants to integrate them and spends millions on this, but then finances this form of segregation. Around the world, there are countries that stopped this type of ghettoes which began to get out of control of the police and became dominated by residents like a micro-country within a country.

One of the ways to feed fanaticism, aside from being in the same space, is the construction of religious symbols and temples……that are already being demolished in various countries of Europe. The case of France, England, Germany, Sweden, and others. In Portugal, not only do they not stop it, they feed these ghettoes, and worse still, with our money, they support the symbols and temples.

Antonio Costa is very generous in distributing the people’s money for mosques and other monuments where they pray to Allah for the death of the infidels? 

Lisbon is preparing for the construction of space for the Islamic religion, in the center of the city.  South of the Tagus (River) and the port, one dreams of having their own building. What is lacking is the land. project is done, the space is adjudicated; what is missing is to free up the land and demolish the buildings so that the Mouraria Square is born, between the streets Palma and Bem Formoso. 

“You can say that the street is ours,” says the president of the Islamic Community of Bangladesh and vice president of the European  Association of Bangladesh. This is because door to door, there is a shop for immigrants from Asia: telecommunications, grocery stores, butchers, restaurants, clothing, souvenirs, oriental articles, newspapers, and magazines.

“The Central Mosque is on Spain Square. We are on Martim Moniz (Square). It is very long, and you need to have a (bus?) pass. There are many Muslims here, we live here, and we work here. We pray 5 times a day, we cannot go to Spain Square.” Reasons for Mohd Mohabub, 44, merchant (clothing and souvenirs), who arrived in Portugal two years ago. 

The new communities of immigrants have changed the sociology of Muslims residing in Portugal, estimated at 50,000 and who were between 60-70,000.  But the majority continue to be from Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau, who have energized the religion in Portugal. And with the financial support of governments and businessmen in wealthier Arab countries. And in Palmela, there is a school that trains imams. 

DN Camara (Chamber of Deputies) is giving three million. A project of the Municipal Chamber of Lisbon (CML) was approved in 2012 and, according to an official municipality source, is supposed to move forward soon. “Freeing up the land is in progress,” An official source of the office of councilman  Manuel Salgado assured SOL that “the process of freeing up the land in order to begin the completion of the project is in progress”. 

“In the framework of upgrade intervention of the public space of Mouraria, the need for better road and pedestrian accessibility of Benformoso Street was identified. For its viability, the creation of a square, between Benformoso Street and Palma Street was envisioned- Mouraria Square,” explains the same source.

And he adds, “The Mouraria Square project foresees the creation of a public space and construction of three blocks for the installation of activities that permit public enjoyment, with multi-purpose functions, and the transfer of a religious space-mosque- already existing in Mouraria”.

It is, adds the office of Manuel Salgado, “the relocation of installations already in existence where other aspects are added for the respective social integration of this community in a zone whose history goes back to the maintenance of the Islamic presence in the city after the Christian Reconquest.”

To construct the new mosque, at a time when Lisbon is pointed out as an example of religious tolerance, a protocol was signed between the municipality and the Islamic Center of Bangladesh, Baitul Mukarram Mosque, on 31 January 2013, to agree on the terms in which it will be installed.  The preliminary architectural study of  Mouraria Square, done by architect Ines Lobo, was approved unanimously in a Chamber meeting on 25 January 2012.

The leftist elite needs the Islamic vote, needs the Islamic shock troops, and it is so easy to buy petroleum from the Islamic potentates, who also send us Mohammadan settlers in hijra-as we have demonstrated here countless times. Then comes the demographic war, terrorism, our lost territories, and finally, Islamic conquest. Talk to any Muslim: they are unanimous in that Portugal and Spain (as well as Israel) belong to them because they invaded and subjugated us in the 7th century.
