    Default Norway to ban Saudi financing

    Saudi-Arabia vil bygge moskeer i Norge - nyheter - Dagbladet.no


    Norway has said that because of restrictions on freedom of religion in Saudi Arabia Norway will not allow it to fund Mosques in Norway and they will raise the issue with the council of Europe. A welcome development.

    Yeah, have to agree.

    Anyone wanting to see violent Islam dealt with in a lasting way has to tackle the Saudi's, the main sponsor of whabism.
    Instead of spending millions bombing remote mountainn training centre, nip their funding at the source.

    Ofcourse, i doubt the norwegians will get their way.

    Call me cynical but would the Norwegians do this if they weren't swimming in North Sea oil?

    Olaf better hope it doesn't run out soon.

    Meanwhile, we should wait til the crude starts flowing from the Porcupine Basin into Fenit before we extend a big F U to the Saudis.

    Well done to the great nation of Norway.

    Not gagged by the EU.

    Free to decide over its affairs.

    A very welcome rebuttal of Saudi Arabia's policy of funding mosques in Europe, while at the same time denying religious freedom in its own country.

    Wait for the far lefties to label Norway as a far right regime when in fact Norway is a tolerant progressive society that is trying to preserve its liberal culture.

    The Sauds shouldn't be allowed to put up any madrassas or churches in Ireland either IMO.

    Also whilst we're on this topic, halal and kosher slaughter are in breach of European animal welfare standards. They should be outlawed immediately. People are entirely free not to eat meat should they find that the only available variety is prohibited by their fables.

    No. We should do what is proper and keep our dignity and honour intact.

    And our cars, buses and trucks in garages, trains in sidings and aircraft in hangars.

    Ever heard of the 1973 oil crisis?

    Ireland is in no position to giving anyone the finger right now. It's called realpolitik.
