What’s wrong with a minaret with loudspeakers? As long as there is a mosque in St. Louis, why shouldn’t there be a minaret with loudspeakers? Well, the Islamic call to prayer resounding all over the city will certainly change the ambiance of the place, and announce in a way that no one can ignore the Muslim presence there. But that in itself is not the problem.
Strictly speaking, the loudspeakers aren’t necessary. They obviously aren’t traditional, and in an age of automobile travel and air-conditoned offices they would have to be far more powerful than they can possibly be to reach the ears of everyone who might actually attend prayers at the mosque. So in Egypt, the loudspeakers have become a vehicle of Islamic supremacism: the call to prayer is blared into Coptic churches during the hours of Christian worship in a manifestly purposeful manner.
Will they become an expression of Islamic supremacism in St. Louis? Well, who is funding the mosque there? Is the mosque connected to any of the organizations that are forwarding the Muslim Brotherhood’s “grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house”? Is anyone even trying to find the answer to that question?
