Frantically abandoning their New Year's Eve chatter and coffee cups, worshippers rushed to the bloodied victim's aid. The bullet had missed his head by inches; the sniper's target would survive.

Police allege the shooting at Malmo's Islamic center — Sweden's largest mosque — was not random. Investigators say it was one of ten attempted murders and at least one killing perpetrated by a gunman whose objective was to "shoot at immigrants."

The apparent bid to kill a Muslim in a place of worship provoked much soul-searching in Sweden, long regarded as one of Europe's most liberal and welcoming societies.

But only nine months later, hundreds of thousands would cast ballots for the far-right Sweden Democrats . With its roots in the neo-Nazi movement, the party warned of "the dangers of Islamization" and ran a controversial campaign ad showing a gang of burqa-clad women overtaking a senior citizen in a race for benefits.

The election result grabbed headlines across Europe. "Anti-immigration party formed from skinhead movement seizes balance of power in Sweden" was the take of Britain's Daily Mail. Germany's Der Spiegel magazine noted that the showing had "shocked a world so used to viewing Sweden as an open-doored bastion of tolerance."

Many stunned Swedes took to the streets to express dismay that an anti-immigrant backlash sweeping across the continent had reached their shores.

'Taking over'
The Sweden Democrats' success was another sign that a mix of immigration, economic woes and the threat of Islamist extremism has swirled into a perfect storm of problems in Europe.

Story: Islamists raise fears of violent 'clash of cultures' in Europe
Far-right parties in Austria, Britain, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland have all made significant gains in recent years.

Some have pushed for caps on immigration. Other measures – such as France's ban on face veils and Switzerland’s moratorium on minaret construction – have directly affected Muslims.

And the reverberations of radical Islam have been felt widely with security services thwarting many terrorist plots on the continent since 9/11. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and controversy over Muhammad cartoons have made some Muslims feel the West is at war with Islam.

"We can't deny that today Islam is regarded as the biggest threat to Europe for many Europeans," said Professor Anne Sofie Roald of Malmo University's Department of International Migration and Ethnic Relations. "People are perceiving it as a threat because they feel that the minority is growing."

It's then that the symbols, such as minarets and veils, become important, she said.

"It always comes back to that people are afraid of Muslims taking over their countries."

However, the Sweden Democrats' upward trajectory began long before the botched attack.

About a decade after its birth, the party earned fewer than 20,000 votes — less than half a percent of the ballots cast — at the 1998 national elections.

But under fresh-faced leader Jimmie Akesson, the Sweden Democrats' enthusiastic support for the cradle-to-grave welfare state — reinforced by a message of nationalistic pride and a vow to dramatically reduce immigration — struck a chord.

In September, the Sweden Democrats captured nearly 340,000 votes (about six percent of the total) and claimed 20 seats in 349-member parliament — helping to prevent any party from being able to govern on its own. They were not invited to join the ruling coalition.

The 31-year-old Akesson and his colleagues received a frosty welcome when they moved into the Riksdag — with other lawmakers refusing to even share a photocopier with them.

At the party's waterside offices in Stockholm, Akesson told msnbc.com that he believes that his country is under siege due to an "extreme immigration policy."
Surrounded by leftover campaign posters, a Swedish flag and a banner emblazoned with the party's "Security and Tradition" motto, Akesson says the government should focus its resources on upholding the welfare system.

He alleges that many immigrants live in "parallel societies" – segregated neighborhoods where they speak their native languages and often only socialize with each other.
"They will never become a part of the Swedish society," Akesson said. "We have to make them Swedes, and they must want to be Swedes. Then I think we can have a future together."

An estimated 44 million Muslims live in Europe – about six percent of the continent's total population — and the figure is expected to grow to 58 million by 2030, according to The Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life.

This growth has sparked fears and a backlash across Europe:

•A poll released in December indicated that only about one third of Germans hold positive views of Muslims.
•France – home to an estimated 4.7 million Muslims — last year banned the wearing of face veils in public .
•In 2009, Swiss voters backed a ban on new minarets being built at mosques.
•Earlier this month, about 2,000 supporters of the extremist English Defence League held a rally in Luton, north of London. The group says its focus is countering radical Islam, but banners reading "No more mosques" were visible at the protest. Past demonstrations have erupted into violence.
•And during last year's election campaign, Akesson wrote an op-ed in which he promised to combat the "dangers" of Islam, which he labeled Sweden's "greatest external threat since World War II."
Story: Demystifying Islam in a strained Britain
In Malmo, about one-third of the city's almost 300,000 residents were born abroad. Although Denmark lies a mere 10 miles away across the hulking Oresund Bridge, there are more Iraqis living there than Danes.

People from 174 countries call Sweden's third-largest city home – including substantial Bosnian, Serb, Polish, Lebanese, Iranian, Afghan, Pakistani and Somali communities.

Malmo's Islamic center serves a 60,000-strong Muslim community, including people who speak 120 different languages.

Bejzat Becirov, the mosque's founder and chief executive, remains shocked by the Dec. 31, 2009, shooting through the window that wounded his colleague. The victim had been sitting at a desk when the sniper took aim and fired. Shards of glass were removed from his neck.
"He could have been hit if that pot wouldn't have been there," Becirov said, motioning toward the window sill where a heavy terracotta planter sits, palm fronds fanning out from its center.

The bullet was found lodged in a wooden cabinet. The office worker was treated at a hospital and later released.

Police arrested Peter Mangs, 38, in connection with the mosque shooting, part of a series of attacks in Malmo that started with the October 2009 murder of a 20-year-old woman. She was shot as she sat in a car with a male friend of an immigrant background. He was also seriously injured.

Mangs denies any involvement in the shooting spree. However, his father told reporters in November that his son "lived in fear of immigrants taking over Swedish society." Police in Malmo told msnbc.com that they are still investigating the motive behind the attacks. Mangs remains in custody.

Fortress of tolerance
The victim of the mosque shooting has since returned to his native Albania "and he doesn’t want to come back," Becirov added.

The attack was an affront to Becirov, who had during the past three decades strived to build a fortress of tolerance.

"It is supposed to be – and it is – an open mosque, open to everybody, not just Muslims and believers, but to everybody for just that policy: to make people come together and see that we are equals. And that's the way it's working.

"We often get the comment that this is the way you wish it would be everywhere," said the 69-year-old Becirov, who fled Communist Yugoslavia by breaking away from a student trip to Sweden in 1962. "That people can go into a mosque, or go into a church to pray no matter what religion you come from, and to work together for the common good."

An imam at the center works regularly with the Christian community, an event with the Jewish community is in the works and the site has hosted the head of Norway's far-right political party, Becirov said. The mosque's founder conceded that they might have disagreed on a few things, but insisted they were able to have a fruitful discussion.

Becirov says Malmo's Islamic center was established as "a Swedish mosque" and that the language is key to uniting people born in the country and immigrants.

It's impossible not to notice how many archetypal blond-haired, blue-eyed Swedes work there. Seventy percent of its 70-person staff are non-Muslim, Becirov said. His translator for the day – Cecilia Hallstrom, who doubles as a first-grade teacher at the Islamic center’s school – wears a small navy blue cross on the delicate chain around her neck.

Located in the immigrant-heavy Rosengard neighborhood, the mosque has been the target of more than just a gunman. Becirov said there have been roughly 300 incidents – including the release of a pig – since it was founded as Scandinavia's first mosque in 1983.

The most devastating attack occurred in 2003, when an arsonist set a fire that engulfed the complex and damaged its school. Only the walls of the prayer room remained, Becirov said. While the center was being rebuilt, another Molotov cocktail was hurled at it.
"After 9/11, we've had fires and the shooting and everything, but nobody has been able to stop us from cooperating with others," Becirov added.

'Norms and values'
Akesson is unconvinced by Becirov's claims of openness and the center's moderate approach to Islam.

The far-right politician maintains that Swedish identity is not rooted in the color of an individual's skin but instead in adherence to the "norms and values that have built up the Swedish society." He sees elements of Islam as running counter to those.

He said the Malmo Islamic center is "not a Swedish building, it doesn't look Swedish," adding that minarets "shouldn't be built at all."

Akesson said that some Muslim communities "say that they are not extreme ... but when they think they are alone, in secret, they say other things that they don't say in these open areas.

"So, I don't really trust those Muslim groups that build those mosques in Sweden," he added.

Roald, the Malmo University academic, noted that if a large group relies on state allowances, it causes an attitude shift among those contributing to the pot that keeps the welfare state moving.

"Everybody has to sort of work for it," Roald said. "And the point is at a certain level or at a certain stage, it will not be enough money – that's a fact."

Dr. Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism expert based at the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College in Stockholm, told msnbc.com that even in traditionally tolerant Sweden there was "fine balance between maintaining equilibrium in society."

”The fact that we didn't discuss the issues of integration in a very productive way ... [has] led to the rise of right-wing parties who are capitalizing on what everyone sees: There is a problem with integration in terms of social issues," he said.

"We do have a lot of immigrants, we are proud of the fact that we have diversity. If we can’t get it right, what is the recipe for the rest of Europe who have much more backward policies in terms of social challenges that they are facing?"

While the idea of Muslims taking over Rome as prophesied by the Prophet Mohammed may seem far-fetched, the historically Christian capital of Italy is now the site of the largest mosque in Europe.

Moschea di Roma, or the Great Mosque of Rome, is able to accommodate 12,000 worshippers and is a powerful symbol for Italy's fast-growing Muslim population.

Large mosques have been built or are on the drawing board in virtually every major city in Europe.

The skyline of Cologne, Germany, has been dominated for centuries by its famous cathedral, the largest Gothic church in northern Europe. But soon the church will share the skyline with the 150-foot tall minarets of the Cologne mosque, now under construction.

The Muslim worship facility, which is being funded by the government of Turkey, is opposed by groups who see it as a piece of Turkish territory in the heart of Germany.

"This mosque is a symbol of political power. It's a symbol of Islamization in the center of Europe, and especially this mosque in Cologne-Ehrenfeld," Pro-Köln organizer Manfred Rouhs told CBN News.

In fact, many of the large mosque projects in Europe are funded by the Turkish government. Some are being financed by the Saudis, and some, like the one planned for Copenhagen, are being built with money from Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

"It's not really a mosque," Danish Muslim expert Lars Hedegaard said of the Copenhagen mosque."It's more like a barracks. It's going to be an institution that will terrorize not only Danes but also non obedient Iranians."

In London, a plan to build the largest mosque in Europe ran into strong public opposition and has been downsized.

But in Cologne and other cities, the left-wing has shown itself to be very pro-Mosque and sometimes demonstrates violently against mosque opponents.

The Great Mosque of Rome and the growing number of giant mosques across Europe are changing not only the physical landscape, but some say they are likely to change the political landscape, as well.

Well, you can't deny all this Islam-sympathy coming about in recent years.

The Vatican is working on finding common ground with Islam.

So is the so-called Emergent Church.

All these "truther" message forums act like Muslims are the ones getting persecuted by the NWO(but say almost nothing about Christians getting so).

There's this LIE creeping into today's church that Christians and Muslims worship the same God b/c supposedly both come from the same lineage of Abraham.

Hollywood celebs are warming up to Islam.

We can go on and on...

Its worse than that, Islam teaches that Jesus will return to kill every one that says he is the son of God. Well Islam calls this person Jesus, we would call him the False Prophet.

European Court Dismisses Lawsuit Challenging Switzerland’s Ban on Minarets

The European Court of Human Rights on Friday dismissed a challenge by Muslim groups to Switzerland's minaret building ban.

A panel of seven judges with the Strasbourg, France-based, court ruled that the people filing the lawsuits couldn't claim to be victims. The ruling's timing coincided with the Muslim day of prayer.

Swiss voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets in 2009 that barred any more construction of the iconic mosque towers.

The country's four standing minarets, which were not affected by the ban, do not traditionally broadcast the call to prayer outside their own buildings.

They are even calling gust storms here in Arizona a "haboob", which is an arabic word that is venacular only in a certain part of Africa! I wrote the local weather chief at one of the local stations, and he blew it off saying they are haboobs. And he tried to be all technical with me by saying that hurricanes are tropical cyclones. Who in the public calls them "tropical cyclones"? Nobody! And nobody uses the word "haboob" in America when refering to dust storms. We call them dust storms!

Anybody hear ever heard the word "haboob" used in America when referring to a dust storm in the United States?

British Muslims Urged to Reject Democracy, Embrace Shari’a-Ruled ‘Emirates’

Part of a poster a Muslim group says it will put up in Muslim neighborhoods in Britain as part of its call for “emirates” to be established under Islamic law

A British Islamic group known for its provocative publicity stunts says a borough in northeast London will be the first target of a campaign to establish “emirates” in the country – Muslim enclaves where shari’a law is enforced.

Waltham Forest, an area identified in the most recent census figures available as having the fifth-biggest proportion of Muslims – 15 percent – of any local authority in England or Wales, has been singled out by radicals behind the group calling itself Muslims Against Crusades (MAC).

“As part of our Islamic Emirate Project, Waltham Forest is to be the first borough to be targeted for an intense shari’a led campaign, introducing the prospect of Islamic law for the Muslim community to abide by,” MAC said in a statement this week.

The project aims to “gradually transform Muslim communities into Islamic Emirates operating under shari’a law,” the group said.

“You are entering a Shariah controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced,” declares a poster supposedly to be distributed as part of the campaign.

The poster, depicted on MAC’s Web site, warns that alcohol, gambling, drugs, smoking, pornography, prostitution and music concerts will be prohibited.

Uh, isn't that insurection?

If you want your own country, fine, but there is a process to it. Unless you officially form a government and notify the world officially, I'd think this way of going about establishing an emerate, or any other type government seperate from Britian would be consider hostile insurection. But then Islam has been spreading this way for centuries; simply move in and take over, only now they use laws against countries versus the sword.

Muslim Extremists Seek Sharia Law in UK Towns

Extremist Muslims in the United Kingdom are calling for the establishment of Islamic states complete with Sharia law.

Muslims Against the Crusades is the controversial group proposing that two towns in Yorkshire and one in East London be turned into states ruled only by Islamic law, entirely outside British common law.

One Muslim imam said any plans to enforce Sharia law in the United Kingdom are farfetched. Still, Christians are worried.

"The idea of bringing Sharia here is total non starter. It's nothing but a publicity stunt," the imam said.

"Most Muslims, the vast bulk of law-abiding productive citizens in this country, do not wish to have Sharia law here," he said. "If we wanted Sharia law, we would go to a country that practices Sharia law."

Local Christian leaders in Bradford, one of the towns affected by the proposal, are deeply disturbed by the plan.

Eph 6
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

 18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

This hatred that we are all experiencing for Islam-I have to ask-Is this biblical. Should we actually feeling tremendously sorry for Islamists and an overwhelming desire to preach the gospel to them. I feel this is spiritual and we should be taking these negative thoughts to the cross (they are darts from the enemy).

Islamic extremists set up Sharia law controlled zones in British cities

Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up.

Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’

The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no **** or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’.

In the past week, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been targeted, raising fears that local residents may be intimidated or threatened for flouting ‘Islamic rules’.

Thousands demonstrate for an Islamic state in Egypt

Calls for an Islamic state have taken over Cairo’s Tahrir Square as the largest demonstration since February has been mobilized by the country’s Islamist organizations. Ultraconservative Muslims turned out in force Friday as hundreds of thousands filled Cairo's central Tahrir Square in a rally marked by a growing rift in the protest movement.

South of the capital, gunmen fired on a car carrying Christians, killing two. While the motive was unknown, similar events have sparked religious violence in the past.
