Clonskeagh Mosque - Al-Qaradawi : "Islam will 'conquer' Europe"
@OpinionLine96 .. Dear Cork 96FM , I am writing this in response to your following tweet .
Firstly , I am not a member of Identity Ireland or any other party and have no particular agenda only that Facts must speak for themselves .
Yusuf al-Qaradawi is the president of the ECFR which has its headquarters at the Clonskeagh Mosque (aka Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland) in Clonskeagh Dublin .
Apart from Speaking in support of suicide bombings in Israel (link below) , Al-Qaradawi has stated that .."Islam will Conquer Europe" .
In a programme aired on Qatar TV in July 2007 , Al-Qaradawi said that Islam will conquer Europe without resorting to the sword or fighting :
The conquest of Rome – the conquest of Italy, and Europe – means that Islam will return to Europe once again.Must this conquest necessarily be though war? No. There is such a thing as peaceful conquest...The peaceful conquest has foundations in this religion, and therefore, I expect that Islam will conquer Europe without resorting to the sword or fighting. It will do so by means of da'wa and ideology. Europe is miserable with materialism, with the philosophy of promiscuity, and with the immoral considerations that rule the world – considerations of self-interest and self-indulgence. It is high time Europe woke up and found a way out from this. Europe will find no life saver or life boat other than Islam. Islam will save Europe from the raging materialism from which it suffers

Therefore , is it unreasonable (or indeed far right) as you say , that someone might refer to the centre as a 'conquest centre' given that one of its leading figures has described his goal as exactly that purpose , to 'conquer europe' .
