Heideggerian Anti-Mosque Protest

So apparently there was a protest against the planned building of a mosque in an Australian town today.

Actual anti-mosque chant:

What do we want?

No mosque!

When do we want it?


Shouldn’t they add: “…and for the foreseeable future!”? I mean, aren’t the criteria already met? Should protest organisers be reading Heidegger’s Being and Time for future reference?

What do we want?

The “who” of that entity which exists “in the world”.

When do we want it?

Time reveals itself as the horizon of being!

Okay, I’ve never actually read Heidegger, but you get the idea.
