When the Caliphate finally comes to Sweden, hardly anyone will even notice the difference.

Swedish prosecutors have decided to charge a 22-year-old man for honking his horn outside the Fittja mosque in Stockholm, citing his intention to disturb the Muslim congregation.

Prosecutor Christina Weilander filed the charges with Södertörn district court on August 23rd, pertaining to an incident outside the mosque on May 3rd – the second Friday that the mosque used its minaret to broadcast the call to prayer since Swedish police allowed congregation leaders to proceed.

Two witnesses were cited in the document filed with the district court.

The 22-year-old is being charged with “störande av förrättning”, the crime of intentionally disrupting a religious or spiritual ceremony – including weddings and funerals. It also outlaws disturbing court cases and certain state proceedings, and is punishable with up to six months in jail according to Sweden’s penal code.

The defendant, meanwhile, has denied the charge that he on purpose sounded his horn to disturb the congregation as the call to prayer rang out at the mosque, which lies next to a lake and a car park in the southern suburb. There are no residential properties in the immediate vicinity.

So Swedish prosecutors have apparently decided that his honking was Islamophobic. How do they know that it was Islamophobic honking, rather than honking honking? Well he was honking in the vicinity of a mosque, wasn’t he.

Guilty by reason of Lèse-mosquité.

    Cowards get what they deserve. DHIMMI will be subservient to their Islamic masters. I wonder how far this will go before Samuel Huntington’s “Clash of Civilizations” turns hot (hotter). Call me anything you like, but you will never rightly call me DHIMMI. Islam is nothing more than a dangerous superstition started by a known killer 1400 years ago. CNN, PBS, CAIR, and the mayor of New York can enjoy each other’s nefarious fellowship of evil.

    Dublin, Ireland, has this week seen planning permission finalised for a gigantic new mosque on the northside of Dublin – we already have an enormous one on the southside. It would take me too long to list all of the peripheral and associated buildings/facilities which were also granted planning permission in the same complex. Fair enough, but I would just love to know where the money is supposed to be coming from. There are only a few thousand Muslims in Dublin – or so we are told. So, is the money coming from Saudi Arabia? Probably. From the Muslim Brotherhood? Possibly/probably. From the ordinary Muslim in the street?
    I don’t think so! Silent, creeping Jihad? Most definitely!! Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

      The Trojan Horse is being admitted by the fools in the bureaucracies.. Sorrow, misery and slavery will follow.

      Another Trojan Horse coming in.

      Eamonn, if you have been following these developments on Dialogue Ireland you will realise this Mega or Uber-mosque is being funded by one Wahabbist individual who has strong views on radicalising.
      A new political party or organisation needs to be set up to let people know the true reality of what Islam entails..
      If you’d be interested, let me know and maybe we can make difference in partnership. I’m located in Dublin!

      • EamonnDublin

        Hi “Kingcelt”! Apologies for the delay in responding to your suggestion. I fully agree, no point just talking about it to a few friends! Any suggestions for getting in touch, for a coffee or whatever? Best Regards, Éamonn.

      What you need is an Irish mosque buster like Gavin boby here in England. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2261623/Mosque-buster

        Thank you, “Jacky”. Mr. Boby appears to be somebody with which we should make contact. Thanks again! Éamonn.

    Dumb effing Swedes, they’re not going to know what hit them.

    Things are no different in Dearbornistan, Michigan, where the civil rights of non-muslimes are regularly violated.

  • Veracious_one

    there should be a law that prevents religion from disturbing the peace and tranquility of the neighborhood…btw do you remember the Muslims sued a man who was using his lawnmower to cut his grass…the Muslims were angry that the mower drowned out the Muslim wailing from the minarets..

  • Smoking Hamster

    Man, if I heard that awful thing in my neighborhood I would not be happy.

    Of course we have a tornado alarm right outside my house. Maybe I could petition the people to have it go off on Friday instead of noon Saturday…

      I believe the daily call to prayer in islam, is a daily occurrence, I believe it is a FIVE times a day daily occurrence.

    When the Caliphate finally comes to Sweden, hardly anyone will even notice the difference.

    That’s so dumb, as reestablishing the Caliphate is not the reason Muslims are fighting us. The reason all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are waging jihad in the cause of Allah for the establishment/expansion of Islam is because the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism through jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia.

      And the name of which is?

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Excuse me…but you are going to have to clarify your response if you want a subsequent response from me, because I don’t have a clue what you are asking for.

        • Northstar

          You don’t have a clue
          Let’s leave it at that

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Northstar from the north, i.e., Canada. Ha!

        • logdon

          Your ignorance is not my concern.

          Try harder.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Oh…I’m sorry, it slipped. Islam is a “religion of peace”, and the vast majority of Muslims in the world are “moderate” and “peaceful”, which is why all Islamic states are totalitarian hellholes and also why everywhere that Muslims have migrated in mass to the West and beyond, they refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form Muslim enclaves that in time inevitably morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Islamic totalitarian law, i.e., Sharia, and are in essence tiny Islamic statelets within the larger host infidel states.

          • logdon

            I agree.

  • WhiteRob

    Islam sucks.
