In January, the Islamisk Trossamfund (the Islamic Faith Society) warned Muslims against distancing themselves from the terror attacks against Charlie Hebdo. It was also Islamisk Trossamfund that in 2005 sent imams to the Middle East with fake Mohammed drawings, with the aim of provoking a boycott of Danish goods and inspiring deadly terrorist attacks against Danish citizens.
With great pomp and circumstance, Islamisk Trossamfund buried the dead terrorist Omar El-Hussain in February. At least 700 Muslims attended the funeral, several of whom expressed their sympathy with the terrorist’s actions. Only a month after this scandalous burial, Copenhagen’s local politicians approved the society’s plans for a new mega-mosque.
In video from the funeral of El-Hussain, several of the attending Muslims can be seen showing the “Islamic State finger.”
Translated from DR:
The Islamic Faith Society has received the municipality’s endorsement for its plan for a new mosque on Dortheavej in Copenhagen Northwest area.
A unanimous technical and environmental committee Monday afternoon gave approval to the new local plan, paving the way for construction of the new mosque and cultural center, which was designed by Henning Larsen Architects.
