Muslims All Over The World Are Up In Arms Over A Bill To Stop Mosques From Blasting The Call To Prayer Over Jerusalem

By Walid Shoebat

In Jerusalem and all throughout Judaea, right after a Jew loves his wife at midnight, smoked a cigarette and then began snoozing, three hours later, he is awakened by moaning of a different kind:

In the Muslim world, depending on the day on the calendar, everyone must wake up 3 to 5 hours past midnight for the Fajr (Dawn) daily prayer when they hear this loud recitation.

After decades of this every day, the Jews of Israel had enough.  It was too much to deal with, so the Jews want to forbid the use of these outdoor speakers in residential areas from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. This will cut off the moaning till noon since the next prayer after dawn is the noon prayer where the moaning can go on four times till 8-9 P.M at night.

But the Muslims are having a fit. This call to prayer is the Muslim alarm-clock since its mandatory that everyone wakes up be they Muslim or not.

And if you think double-pain windows or ear-plugs might help alleviate the sound, it simply doesn’t work. I lived in Israel and can tell you that in Bethlehem it was three minarets that blasted the ear piercing sound minutes apart with echoes and shockwaves. I once visited a friend whose balcony was yards apart from the loudspeaker. The sound nearly blasted the tea cups.

And just in case you heard the blasting sound and decided to go back and snooze, the caller even shouts at the end of the chant Al-Salatu Khayrun Mina-Al-Nawm “Prayer is better than sleep” a few times to remind you of the sin you committed for not waking up.

Islam mandates you must wake up, gargle with your right hand three times after washing your private parts with the left. Then wash your hands face and feet three times and then begin to pray facing Mecca. But Allah forbid you loved your wife that night, then its a mandatory bathing for the both of you at 3, 4 or 5 A.M.

But the Jews had enough of it. After a stormy debate that included mutual insult-hurling by the Left and Right, by Muslims and Jews, the Knesset voted 55-48, in its preliminary reading of the controversial “muezzin [call to prayer] bill,” a proposal to prohibit religious institutions from using outdoor loudspeakers that is understood to be directed at the country’s mosques.

Muslim are upset since Islam argues:

“What is meant by the words “prayer is better than sleep” is that the obligatory prayer that Allah has enjoined is better than sleep, and what people should do is get up for it.”

The Jews, being stubborn about it, insist they do not want to wake up.

When the bill was first announced the reaction by the Muslim community in Jerusalem was to have every Muslim get up on the rooftops and each do the call to prayer all together in unison so that all Jews wake up.

Trust me, you never seen or heard this:

So if you think your weekend Mexican neighbors party was bad enough, try living as a Christian or Jew in Jerusalem and the nearby villages.

There were angry scenes in Israel’s parliament last Wednesday as preliminary approval was given to the bill that would restrict the use of these outdoor loudspeakers.

Two versions of the so-called “muezzin bill”, which would mostly affect Muslim calls to prayer, passed their first readings by slim majorities.

Some Arab MPs insisted everyone must wake up to pray “prayer is better than sleep” so they ripped apart copies of the legislation during a debate.

Of course, in solidarity insisting that Jews and Christians must be disturbed at the wee hours of the night, the tallest building in the world “Burj Khalifa” (Tower of the Caliph) in Dubai in solidarity with Palestinian Muslims blasted the call to prayer for all tourists to hear:

Welcome to Hotel Mecca, where you can check-out any time you like but you can never leave.

Pray till the wee hours of the night that no branch of this “Hotel Mecca” comes near you anytime soon. I don’t know about you, but at 3-5 A.M, I’d rather pray in my dream.

    “So if you think your weekend Mexican neighbors party was bad enough, try living as a Christian or Jew in Jerusalem and the nearby villages.”

    HORRIFYING THOUGHT. I can’t stand the one; I could not live with the other.

    I am starting to wonder if Islam has to reconquer Sicily and the boot of Italy for a couple of hundred years and knock on the doors of Rome with artillery fire before we realize they are serious and start equipping ourselves with all the accurements that make a soldier

    • SuzyQ

      The people I know in Italy are already lost. Supportive of the “poor lost souls” and welcoming these middle easterners onto their shores. They are “for solidarity with people who come from poverty, war and Isis” They “believe in a world without borders and walls” I just got those two quotes from someone who lives in Rome this past weekend. I asked him if he did not study past history of the Ottoman Empire and also mentioned that Erodan is trying to re-establish the Caliphate in Turkey…. no response from him yet, and he is supposedly an
      educated person.

      • Tom_mcewen

        Well, some are educated out of the history of Christian civilization into a neopagan Tolerance of the intolerable. There are many in Italy who are Atheists and I know many anticlerical who are now looking at the world they created and are wondering.

  • Methusalem

    Their call to prayer is actually their way of spreading demonic vibration unto the subconscious minds of sleeping Jews and Christians. I don*t understand why it took so long for the Israelis to ban this ugly ritual

  • ezekiel22

    If I remember correctly a person needs at least five hours uninterrupted sleep lest they risk not functioning fully. One of the favorite torture/interrogation/brainwashing tools is a lack of sleep. It makes the brain more susceptible to being bent to another will. In that light it makes sense as to why islam is so illogical yet followed by so many.

    They can’t set their [email protected] alarm clocks?

    • Grace Ziem

      It’s not a cult known for self discipline…

    • Стефан Евгений

      No! then they can’t make every one’s life H3LL!!!
      I came across one of these things in Huntsville AL, It went on for ever.
      I moved across town, to get away.

      • DeusLoVult

        Ugh….I’m surprised someone didn’t shoot the loudspeakers. No way would I be able to tolerate such unholy ear pollution….

  • Fr Christopher P. Kelley, DD

    Years ago, maybe in the 1990s, when Erdogan was Mayor of CONSTANTINOPLE, he had a mosque put directly opposite the office windows of the Greek Patriarch, in the Fanar. Loudspeakers were installed, to blast that unholy racket directly at the Patriarch’s office windows. When the demonic noise was made, all conversation in the Patriarch’s office had to be suspended. It was, of course, fully deliberate. — I have this directly from one who experienced it.
    0-Zero may like it, but hell have an eternal earfull of it down yonder… It’s part of Muh’d’s jihad on the world. satan knows no silence, no peace. So hell inflict it on his slaves, and they on the rest of mankind.
    Let it be unamplified… That at least takes it back to “original 7th Century style”…
    & what objection, honestly, can there be to that!???
    Oh, sorry, I forgot. Honesty is NOT a part of islammm. Never has been, never will be.

  • Wilma Mills

    Nothing wrong with stopping something like this even if it was something good.
    “He that blesseth his brother with a loud voice very early in the morning, it shall be counted as a curse.”
    That bellowing is maddening any time of day.

  • Michael Bede Davidson

    pray when you wake up.There should be NO compulsion, otherwise its not from the heart, it would be hypocrisy

    • David W

      It is a form of jihad and intimidation. Like Minnesota using taxpayer dollars to construct college prayer rooms and airport footwashing facilities! Like forcing eating establishments and school cafeterias to stop serving pork and alcohol. Incrementalism….

      A large percentage of Muslim refugees are using the welfare, housing and medical benefits at our expense, with no condemnation from any Repubelican or Demoncat figures.

    “But Allah forbid you loved your wife that night, then its a mandatory bathing for the both of you at 3, 4 or 5 A.M.”

    Walid you have a way with words that makes one laugh so hard. LMAO.

  • David W

    FYI, in Hammamtrak Michigan there is a loud noisy minaret that belts this noise out 5 times a day. It was embraced by the “Separation of Church and State” crowd.

    • Doug Brown

      Lots of Christians don’t believe Joel Richardson concerning the teaching that Islam is far worse than even the most hardcore naysayers think.

  • Eric Mueller

    If I hear that garbage, I don’t care where I am at, I am playing this song as loud as I can and we will see how they like it. I am surprised that churches do not play this song as loud as they can but I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that they haven’t. It’s what happens when the devil takes over, wickedness rises and righteousness diminishes.

    • Eric Mueller

      “Let hope arise and make the darkness hide
      My faith is dead I need resurrection somehow
      Now I’m lost in Your freedom
      In this world I’ll overcome”

      “Let heaven roar and fire fall
      Come shake the ground
      With the sound of revival”

    Time to move the Muslims out of Jerusalem, out of Israel

  • Flame blue

    Nocturnal, of the night, originally based on celebrating the return with “the conquered ” taken by surprise after midnight when asleep. Non Muslims robbed, beaten, raped, enslaved, time to pray and thank Allah for another successful night raid!

    It’s a surprise the Jews put up with that racket in the middle of the night for all that time. Islam will not tolerate other religionists imposing on them, yet they demand to impose on people who are not muslims and need to go to work the next day, or just want peace to rest. Diabolical, selfish, not even sensible to boom out loudspeakers in the middle of the night. It’s all about persecuting others, making their presence known, getting attention, being allowed to violate non Muslims.

    We stopped ringing our church bells once a week at 10.50am, due to atheists complaining that they didn’t want disturbed or reminded that a church was in their midst. Under the Christian guidance of being a good neighbour, we stopped for years. Yet, these neighbours who can’t tolerate us don’t mind using our car park during the week, free of charge of course! And some weren’t happy to be asked on one occasion ( while we held a dinner celebration ) to leave the car park so our people could use it. They looked at the two Christians who asked them to move their cars that night as if they had horns on their heads. Strangely, it didn’t occur to the neighbours that ” we Christians” actually pay for the upkeep of our car park, our own land!

    We reinstated our bells about a year ago after finding out that a mosque half a mile away, makes quite a bit of noise several times during the week, and doesn’t bother about their neighbours! In fact, l don’t think their neighbours ever complain, strange thing that!

  • Nan

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be in Bethlehem in a couple of weeks, first, on a pilgrimage of the organized sort, then staying at someone’s house for a week while I paint an icon.

  • Great. We finally found the emissary who will go to Jerusalem and speak to the Muslims at the Dome of the Rock during Friday prayers.

    Problem solves. A reasonable emissary will do this.

  • From your description I know you were in the old city 😉

    Thats what I was trying to say, its not just one mosque calling to prayer its 2,3,4 or 5 or even 6.

  • Craig A. Mouldey

    I listened only for half a minute to those clips. What madness! I can’t help but think of it as a type of mind control. If anyone was in the habit of blasting their music for the entire neighbourhood to hear, many would view that person extremely inconsiderate. This is obscene. Talk about shoving their ideas down everybody’s throat.
    hotel California indeed. We are all just prisoners here, of our own device.

    I do not think this pope is senile in the least I think he is complicit.
