Silly Gavin Boby is on a serious Crusade to stop the building of mosques.

Mosque buster’ lawyer gives free advice on how to block worship

A self-styled “mosque buster”, who boasts that he has blocked plans for 16 mosques across Britain, was once linked to the far-right English Defence League (EDL) and claims that Islam encourages paedophilia, sexual abuse and pimping.

Gavin Boby, a planning lawyer from Bristol, urges his followers to undermine planning applications for mosques by raising their opposition with councils.

Boby, 48, runs a planning consultancy but under the banner of the Law and Freedom Foundation he also provides a free legal service for those who oppose mosque developments. Through his foundation he claims to have stopped the construction of 16 out of 17 mosques across Britain.

Boby launched the service with a mock-up of the Ghostbusters logo – in which the ghost was replaced by Abu Hamza, the radical cleric – and posted vacancies for volunteers on the EDL website. He has written an online guide that shows “ordinary local citizens” how to make a legal case against mosques.

In the guide, reproduced last week on the far-right blog Gates of Vienna, Boby says: “Let councils know that they’re on the hook for their decisions. Be relentless. Push.”

He also suggests opposing a proposed Islamic community and welfare centre in Leeds on the grounds of “parking congestion”, “disturbance” and “community relations”. He advises emphasising that the proposed project will “cause unacceptable pollution” from traffic, is “not a community facility” because it is for “a speci  fic purpose” and is a hazard to local schoolchildren as it will “bring in outsiders with no connection to the area”.

Although his advice is rooted in legal arguments, his motiva tions are driven by an apparent ideological hatred of Islam. In a video interview on YouTube, Boby refers to recent sex abuse cases and claims mosques are used to instruct followers to commit acts of paedophilia, sexual abuse and pimping. “Islamic doctrine permits, encourages and to a certain extent mandates Muslim men to take non-Muslim women as slaves to be used for sex,” he says, adding: “In order to stop the Islamic doctrine, which is the root of this problem, you have to prevent further mosques from being built.”

Councils contacted by The Sunday Times have disputed claims that Boby has been instrumental in blocking the development of local mosques. Waltham Forest council, in northeast London, opposed the development of one mosque for traffic-related reasons, while an application for another had simply been withdrawn by the applicant.

Croydon council, in south London, said it had blocked the development of a proposed mosque because of issues relating to parking and plan ning. It is understood that Muslim community leaders had played a leading role in stopping the mosque being developed, according to a senior council source.

    Lol.

    Well, you know in Europe a flock of loons can come together and call themselves a “political party” and get on the ballot. They can frighten voters into voting for them to “prevent Islamization” – an “issue” that is not actually real and is a myth. Rather than confronting loony “political parties” with the truth about Muslim communities in the country – mainstream political parties refuse to challenge such a myth to scare voters into voting for loony “political parties.” In the Netherlands, it’s about “being polite” and notion that you don’t get too aggressive with “another candidate and his party.”

    I have refereed to the Dutch intelligence service, AIVD, as the Ghostbusters – as they are still hunting phantom jihadists and the ghosts of “Islamists” – never mind what Wilders and his PVV would do if they ever got a hold of the country.

    mosquebusters? really? is that the best name they can come up with?

    also “He also suggests opposing a proposed Islamic community and welfare centre in Leeds on the grounds of “parking congestion”, “disturbance” and “community relations”.

    don’t these idiots know that most people go to mosques walking or by taking public transportation, do they think cars will magically pop up out of nowhere

    (and FYI, the loons use this argument all the time to try to show other people that they’re not bigots and nazi sympathizers)

    I like how these morons throw wild accusations with no facts but once you try to correct them, they accuse you of TAQQIYA

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    This idiot again.
