From Christian Today
A demonstration is being organised for the weekend by Stop Islamization of Europe (SIOE) to protest the building of large mosques in Europe while some majority-Muslim countries continue to refuse the construction of churches and other non-Islamic places of worship within their own borders.
Organisers of the event said, “No more mosques in the European Union until we see churches, temples and synagogues in Mecca,” according to the US-based persecution watchdog Christian Freedom International (CFI).
The media have criticised SIOE for “intolerance” and showing a “lack of secularist globalist thinking”.
Organisers of the event said that the date for the demonstration was chosen as it was the closest Saturday to Saint Nicholas Day, which is widely celebrated in the south of France.
There are currently plans to build a large mosque in Marseilles as well as in other major cities in Europe and the USA.
SIOE considers the building of such mosques to be one of the tactics used to spread Islam in the West.
An SIOE organiser for the event said, “It is known that many Islamist projects are funded by Saudi Arabia, which forbids any other religion within its borders."
The group pointed out that mosques are being built in record numbers in the western world, whilst at the same time non-Muslim places of worship are being destroyed in majority-Muslim countries like Turkey.
