Islamization in reverse!
good news from the Italian newspaper La Repubblica
is a microcosm of what needs to happen throughout the West. Instead of Muslims coming into an area and immediately putting up their ubiquitous “Islamic centers,” which are in fact mosques, and which soon turn into mosques in name as well as in fact, thus making the area effectively part of the Dar al Islam
, the Islamic mosques need to be removed (soon to be happily followed by the Muslims who frequent them), thus removing the symbolic announcement that Islam is taking over the West, and, better yet, not just removed but replaced by non-Islamic, Western symbols—or, better yet, as in this case, replaced by a famous anti
-Islamic symbol: the late Orianna Fallaci.
The story from La Repubblica was translated into English and posted at Gates of Vienna on May 19:
Oriana Fallaci Square in place of the mosque
- end of initial entry -
VERONA—Goodbye mosque. In its place, Oriana Fallaci Square.
This decision was taken by the committee of Oppeano (Verona), where yesterday morning a building used by Muslims for prayer was bulldozed. In its place, the Municipality will create a public square named after the writer of The Rage and the Pride, which promoted a bitter campaign against Islam.
The decision to raze the structure which had been opened by ONLUS [translator’s note: Organizzazione Non Lucrativa di Utilita’ Sociale, a non-profit registered Italian charity] “For the success of Muslims”, was taken by the municipal administration, which acquired the area for €70,000 in order to transform it into an open area for parking and green space.
“My citizens did not want this takeover [meaning the takeover of the building by Muslims for use as a mosque],” explained the mayor, Alessandro Montagnoli, deputy of the Lega Nord, “above all because it could create problems of practicability and cohabitation with the residents.”
KPA writes from Canada:
I think you make a great series of upping the ante when you write about the Italians’ bulldozing of the “Islamic Center” aka mosque:

Yes, we don’t just need pro-Western symbols, but anti-Islamic ones. Often with bullies (which Muslims are), a simple, devastating, symbolic and negative (to the bully) act goes a long way. I think, though, with Muslims, acts like bulldozing down and replacing their mosques—Oh, I meant “Islamic centers”—have to be repeated and increased in intensity until they really get the message.
