“MOSQUECOW?” Russian official says, “We don’t want any more mosques in Moscow”

imagesThe Mayor of Moscow says there are no plans to build a new mosque in the city, and says the ‘excessive’ number of economic migrants was a ‘harmful thing.’ Sergey Sobyanin said,“Muscovites now get irritated by (Muslim) people who have different manners and often display aggressive behavior.”


Russia Today “It has turned out that the praying Muslims are not at all Russian citizens and they are not Moscow residents. They are labor migrants. There are only 10 percent of Moscow residents among them and building mosques for everyone who wants it – I think this is over the top,” Sergey Sobyanin said in an interview with Moscow’s Echo radio.

At the same time, the Moscow Mayor explained that there are no ethnic enclaves in the city and expressed the hope that such enclaves would never appear as closed districts like that usually have a very high crime rate.


Sobyanin went on to say that the current quota of 200,000 migrant workers in the city and only 35 percent are skilled specialists. The official said that it was necessary to gradually decrease the share of unskilled workers and added that this could only be done if wages were raised.

According to some estimates Moscow has 10 illegal migrants for every registered one. This makes the number of unregistered foreign workers in the city to well over two million. In 2012 the authorities deported 16,000 foreigners from the city for working illegally.

Russian Muslims did not welcome the Mayor Sobyanin’s statement.  Co-chairman of the Councils of Muftis of Russia, Nafigulla Ashirov told the Russian News Service that Muslims did not agree with Sobyanin’s plans and that they would, if the need arises, address President Vladimir Putin with a request for help.

    • islam is a cancer and must be eradicated like the disease it is Wow. Almost makes you trust Russians again, LOL the worst of the worst ,snakes and muslims are the same family breed and cousins.look at their eyes ,that tells everything ,also they smell bad

  1. Migration has been the first step of jihad since Mohammed and his followers were run out of Mecca for overly-disturbing the peaceful community. What we’re seeing all over the world is simply sunna.

  2. As long as Democracies give invading Muslims all the right of its own citizens, they are doomed. Take a look at how Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia treat non-Muslims and emulate them. There are cities in Arabia which are totally closed to non-Muslims. Knowing how Muslims create and become enormous social and economic problems in Democratic states, practical measures must be taken such as putting a cap on the number of Muslims allowed in any city – 2% is sufficient. Any more becomes dangerous. Moscow’s population is 11,500,000. This means there should be no more than 230,000 Muslims allowed (2%) Deport the rest and that solves their mosque shortage problem.

    • Are you kidding!? Muslims don’t just get the rights that the other citizens get they get MORE. They also get the luxury of committing their crimes and sweeping them under the rug and pretending that they are they victim and anyone who dares ask or question them is a RACIST. They are such oppressive tools, it’s not even funny. “Free speech” is becoming, “only say what Islam allows you to say speech” which is really… not much at all.

    • Sandra, since the breakup of the Soviet Union, religion is allowed. The muslims used to be confined to their own Islamic area in the Chechya region. Apparently, like a deadly virus, they have spread out.

      • I have family in Russia and around the old Soviet Union(which in my opinion was a failed attempt at “integration” that was mostly trashed and dominated by the Muslims.) And it fell apart for those east-indian reasons exactly. But a lot of Europeans/Russians in those areas became Muslims, difference is the white Muslims of European descent do not act like the extremist East Indians we are all repressed by today. Point being i think it’s more than just the religion, it’s the Middle Eastern dirt that truly make the religion evil. Cause the Russian muslims act peacefully like Christians, and don’t condemn ANYONE, they are chill and most are not full head gear. Ha. Yeah i would chose European muslims ANY day over the 3rd world trash we’ve been getting, we’re getting the waves of Terrorist Muslims sent to kill us from within. Well good try, it ain’t gonna work betches.

      • This is in NO WAY praying ! It is demonstrating ! As such, semi- trailers ahould e filled with gangs of these filthy peices of drek and hauled off to a fenced counpound somewhere for blocking the street. Of course, care should be taken to process the lawbreakers quickly, a day or so should be O.K. Just to prove the statement about demonstrating, there is no way the ragheads can face Mecca while praying (preying) around a curve.

  3. They are everywhere… and they do not play well with others!

    The conflict on since the 7th century between Muslims going and just about everyone else is going to get ugly and heat up and occupy most of the mid 21st century and perhaps longer.

    • Aye men to that, brother. This whole Islam invasion that has been taking place in most Western/European countries for years now(but is thankfully starting to be acknowledged now) makes me want to drink vodka, and also throw it at the extremist muslims like it’s holy water.

  4. Asking and even “demanding” that there be a mosque in ever borough and even every neighborhood. That’s the old Muslim way. Demand what you want and when we have enmassed enough in numbers, strike terror in their hearts and take what we want. Ahhhh islam, the PEACEFUL religion. Beasts.
