Some Moslems denounce taking over churches

It appears that at least in Spain there are some Moslems who are willing to stand up against the Islamic Imperialists who want to reclaim Al Andalus as a Moslem territory, 500-odd years after the Moors were expelled and Spain was restored to Christianity.

Alluding to the precedent set by the Caliph Omar who, after the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem in the 7th century, opted not to pray in the most important church there because “if I do this, someday Muslims will use it as an excuse to take the church away from you,” the statement notes that “it is clear from this act that Christian places of worship should not be turned into mosques, and if that has happened in the past, it was against the norms of Islam.

As Omar Ribas notes in this quote, the Socialist government of Spain open backs the most extreme Moslems as the authentic voice of Islam. This is a huge mistake that many Western governments are also making.

In an article published at, Omar Ribas, a Muslim from Barcelona and a member of Al-Hidaya, which represents Muslims all over Spain, expressed his disgust at “the disconcerting presence in the media of a handful of persons, openly backed by the party currently in power,” who “act like they own the name Muslim, when in reality they are alien to the community, as they only act in their own benefit, seeking to subvert and steal the spotlight.”

Ribas said the Islamic Council, a small group of Muslims in Cordoba, “represents no one but itself.” In January of 2005, he explained, the group “was expelled from the Council of the Spanish Federation of Islamic Religious Entities.”
