Tradcatknight: RISE OF ISLAM: 500 churches close in London and replaced with 423 new mosques
"London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together," says London Islamic preacher Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi. The city of London – dubbed "Londonistan" by outspoken journalist Melanie Phillips – now has 423 new mosques, which are "built on the sad ruins of English Christianity." So writes Italian journalist and writer, Arutz Sheva columniist Giulio Meotti in an article written for Gatestone Institute reported here.
The Hyatt United Church, for instance, on Hamilton Road, was purchased by the Egyptian community and is being converted into a mosque. St Peter's Church is now the Madina Mosque, and the Brick Lane Mosque used to be a Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, writes Meotti, but also people: "The number of converts to Islam [in London] has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster." "Given the current trends," he predicts, "Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future." It is estimated that by 2020, the number of Muslims attending prayers will top the number of Christians attending weekly Mass, 683,000 to 679,000.
