No doubt with more to follow.
This shouldn’t have been allowed to happen, anymore than a national socialist/marxist meeting place allowed to be built in order to spread their poison.

The Biggest Mega-Mosque in Scandinavia

“In this way we can promote our moderate message of Islam. The Emir [of Qatar] would really like this.” — Mohamed al-Maimouni, spokesman, Danish Islamic Council.
Construction crews in Copenhagen have raised Denmark’s first minaret — a 20 meter (65 foot) tower-like structure that will alter Copenhagen’s low-rise skyline — as the finishing touch on a colossal project to build the biggest mega-mosque in Scandinavia.
Construction of the minaret, which was finished on September 3, marks the final phase of work on Denmark’s first-ever purpose-built mosque, situated at Rovsingsgade Street in Nørrebro, a heavily Islamized district in northwestern Copenhagen.
The so-called Grand Mosque, which will cater to Sunni Muslims, is massive by European standards. The complex covers 6,800 square meters (75,000 square feet) and will house a domed mosque, a restaurant, a cinema, classrooms, offices, a community center for the elderly, childcare facilities, a playground and more, in what is being billed as the largest “real” mosque in Scandinavia.

The mosque has only been possible thanks to a 150 million kroner ($26 million) donation by the former ruling Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, which has led critics to voice concerns that the mosque will become a mouthpiece for radical Islam.
In an interview with the Copenhagen-based daily newspaper Berlingske on August 5, Copenhagen City Council member Lars Aslan Rasmussen said, “Gifts like these from Qatar are not free and I am worried that Muslims in Denmark risk becoming radicalized and pushed even further from the society that they should be a part of.”
