Rebuild churches in Libya, no. rebuild mosques, yes

And Turkey is helping.

"The Libyan people will establish a country that will be a model for the region, and we will help them."

Libya as a model for the region means; sharia law as the only form of jurisprudence, Islam as the only accepted and recognized religion and support for global jihad. It also means the end of Christian presence in a country with a millennial history of Christians, and Jews as well.

There will be no new or rebuilt churches in the new Libya, only more mosques. The partnership with Turkey strengthens the Islamic influence in that part of North Africa, not a good thing for freedom-loving peoples both in Libya and Turkey.

Turkey to restore Ottoman mosques in Middle East

Turkey is taking steps to restore and renovate mosques that were built by the Ottomans in Libya and Gaza.

The Turkish government is planning to restore an Ottoman mosque in Libya, a Turkish company executive said on Saturday.

Hilmi Özkazanç, an executive with Nurol Construction, said Turkey is planning to start renovating the Murad Agha Mosque in the town of Tajura near the Libyan capital of Tripoli. “We will come to Tajura again next week to see what we have to do to the mosque,” Özkazanç told an Anatolia correspondent.

Özkazanç said restoration would probably begin by the end of this year.

Özkazanç visited Tajura together with Turkey’s Ambassador to Libya Ali Kemal Aydın. During the visit Aydın said, “The Libyan people will establish a country that will be a model for the region, and we will help them.”

The Murad Agha Mosque was constructed in Tajura approximately 16 kilometers east of Tripoli in 1552 by Agha -- one of the three commanders who joined the conquest of Tripoli Province during the Ottoman era. Agha later served as governor of the province. The mosque has 48 marble columns topped by a series of arches that support the vaults.

During his visit to Libya in September, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited the mosque together with Mustafa Abd al-Jalil, the chairman of Libya’s National Transitional Council, and addressed people who gathered around the mosque to see him.

The administration of Palestine’s Gaza City has requested assistance from Turkey in the construction of several mosques after they were destroyed or severely damaged in the 2008-2009 Gaza War, the Anatolia news agency reported last week. According to a report released by government officials in Gaza, there is an urgent need for mosques in the city due to rapid population growth...

I did not think there would be population growth in what is referred to as a "concentration camp" by the left and the media. They also never explain the dichotomy of the two new multi-story shopping malls, a Mercedes-Benz dealership and 4-star restaurants to feed those with the million-dollar hillside homes. Both Gaza and the West Bank are far from what one would call a concentration camp.

Absolutely correct Barry!
So Gaza's population is exploding?
Starving, poor, stressed, malnourished, oppressed, "victims" are not capable of reproducing, no less reproducing rapidly. One of the first things that happen to starving women, is the cessation of their menstrual period. No period-no pregnancy! During periods of starvation, many miscarriages and still births will occur. Women who do maintain a pregnancy while starving, deliver extremely low birth weight children who will experience a host of various developmental & physical abnormalities. Babies of malnourished mothers have a 35% increase in the risk of coronary death and are 6 times more likely to develop diabetes later in life.
Babies of starving women are at an increased risk for developing cerebral palsy, liver disorders, cleft palate, blindness, and other physical abnormalities, plus they are also at risk for mental disorders, including lowered IQ, and learning disabilities later on in life.
Looking over the various health statistics for the Gaza area, there are NO spikes in abnormalities, and there is absolutely NO evidence of any of these illnesses, abnormalities, etc... showing up in disproportionate or elevated numbers in the residents of Gaza.
That whole "poor, oppressed Gazan's" schtick is just deliberate propaganda and blatant lies.
