WASHINGTON – Many Muslim immigrants express a sentiment of entitlement, believing they one day will replace the natives and the land in which they are strangers will come under the authority of Islamic law.
It’s already happening in France, according to a report published by the Gatestone Institute by Giuliu Meotti, cultural editor for Il Folgio.
He says, in the last 30 years, more mosques and Muslim prayer centers “have been built in France than all the Catholic churches built in the last century.”
At the same time, Christian churches are being bulldozed.
Meotti notes that France has laws protecting old trees, but “the state is free to flatten old Christian churches” and “the vacuums created in the French landscape are already being filled by the booming mosques.”
“House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World” conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionist ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government
France is able to demolish old churches because the government appropriated all church property and the cost of maintaining them in 1907, the Gatestone Institute report said.
But local officials are reluctant to spend money on the buildings, so they are being turned in activity centers, offices, apartments and even mosques. Or, they simply are being demolished.
France could lose 5,000 to 10,000 religious buildings by 2030, according to a report from the Observatory of Religious Heritage.
