Cabinet OKs sale of Monash land to the Canberra Islamic Centre

By johnboy 19 September 2011 39

The Cabinet outcomes have been released from the 6 September meeting.

The biggie is this one:

Cabinet agreed to grant a lease by direct sale to the Canberra Islamic Centre Incorporated (CIC) over Block 4 Section 52 Monash. The land will be used as a place of worship, for religious associated use, as an ancillary cultural facility and as a community activity centre.

Nice to see that a suburb named after one of Australia’s most notable jews is not a problem.

What’s Your opinion?

Amazing the kind of comments that turn up whenever Islam is mentioned, in that it is completely immune from any kind of criticism. No-one dare say a word in protest, but the fact is that Islam is responsible for the vast majority of atrocities carried out across the world every day. Today a Mosque, tomorrow Sharia Law, next week riots.

Whats-his-face from the Norway massacre was a Muslim?

All the rioters in England recently were all Muslim?

News to me!

That’s what I like to see; ignorance in full bloom, or are you trying for satire?

Utter bollocks.

Islamic extremists are evil f%ks, but the idea that “Islam is responsible for the vast majority of atrocities carried out across the world every day” is demonstrably false. There are stacks of stats on terrorist attacks, and the bulk aren’t committed by Islamic extremists, but by

A handy list of figures of attacks on US soil (and links to further stats, including global stats) is available from here: http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/01/not-all-terrorists-are-muslims/

I guessing that second paragraph is meant to leave us hanging, right…?

My bad – oddly enough, the most terrorist events was by far from Latino groups.

As you pointed out, there’s a lot going on in the world that we don’t hear about.

“The land will be used as a place of worship”

Why don’t they drop the spin and call it a mosque – and it is happening by stealth without the usual public consultation.
Soon Monash residents will be awakened by the sound of prayer blasting on the Tannoy all over the Tuggeranong Valley.

I don’t think so…. The Salvos are not allowed to do their band playing on a Sunday on a street corner any more.

•Interest and Penalties on Outstanding Rent have been waived off (Approx $52,000)

I’m curious (independent of religion): what criteria are appropriate to waive rent?
Can I get my rates waived?

Soon Monash residents will be awakened by the sound of prayer blasting on the Tannoy all over the Tuggeranong Valley at 2.00 pm.

The Azan, calls the Muslim to prayer five times a day. The call to prayer is heard at dawn, at the midday, about the middle of the afternoon, just after sunset, and at night fall about two hours after sunset.

The muezzin, a man appointed to call to prayer, climbs the mineret of the mosque, and he calls in all directions, “Hasten to prayer.” Many mosques no longer require the muezzin to climb the mineret. Instead, a loud speaker carries the message.

I have no problems with a mosque, if they are law abiding and peaceful….ie no extremists stuff.

I dont see people complaining when a catholic or other christian type denominations building their places of worship.

I think all religion is balony myself, but last I saw, this is a free country.

you just don’t understand how it works. muslims all support terrorism and oppressing women. catholics all support pedophilia. those are you two choices–pick a side. ignorance can be fun.

A bunch of people getting together to observe their religious beliefs – better get out the pitchforks like we do for the Christians, eh?

As has been ppointed out previously, the vast majority of religious people want to lives their lives with minimal hassle. You get the occasional nutter, just as you do in the non-religious context.

There has been a huge Islamic centre in Monash for many years. Majority of Muslims on the southside frequent the venue as it’s closer than the Canberra mosque in Yarralumla.

Who cares. This is not news.

You serious? The RiotACT is so ridiculously liberal and politically correct that none of the “old hands” would dare say anything negative about this for fear of being labelled racist.

Unless its about Christians, then its a free for all.

The Gungahlin plan has been ‘off’ for some months. the only issue was parking/access in the area proposed. Look at the Nicholls shops parking/access debacle and times it by about ten.

I didn’t know the Gungahlin Mosque project had been cancelled.

The Nicholls one was called off some time ago but as far as I knew the one on Valley Way was still a goer.

Have a got a link to any details of the cancellation of the Gungahlin one?

Maybe I have been watching too much American television to what the Muslim faith actually is but at my current understanding of it, I find their hatred of women and supression of free thought extremely threatening.

You’re referring to a certain division of the Muslim faith – Extremists.

Extremists, y’know – Like all other religions have. Ever been to Northern Ireland? Heard of Westboro Baptist? Those crazy Hellfire jerks that said the victims of the Victorian bushfires deserved what they got, for living a life of SIN?

I guess that’s the problem with Americans. They watch too much American TV. Look where it got them. Look what it’s got you posting.
