U.S. military personnel told to not to eat, drink in front of Muslims…in Maryland

Enforcing the sharia. via Troops told to refrain from eating, drinking in front of Muslims | Todd Starnes

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion.

That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md.

The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues.

Join Todd on Facebook for Conservative Conversation!

“This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to encourage you to learn just a little more about this religion, but more importantly, I’m asking you to be considerate and do not consume food or drink in front of our Muslim colleagues; it is a simple, yet respectful action.”

During the month-long period known as Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking during daylight hours.

The brigade commander also provided a link to a website about Islam, and specifically Ramadan.

Now that raised the ire of some of the officers and doctors training at the USU, and several of them reached out to me with their concerns – provided I not disclose their names.

“I respect the intention behind this email, but note that there is no similar call honoring other faiths,” one Marine told me. “There is no similar invitation for non-Jewish colleagues to refrain from eating leavened products during Passover, or non-Christian colleagues to refrain from eating meat during Lent.”

The entire incident smells of political correctness, the Marine told me.

“Our veterans have sacrificed too much blood, sweat and tears to have their own rights and freedoms be sacrificed on the altar of progressive political correctness,” the Marine said.

I contacted USU about the email. I wanted to understand the brigade commander’s intent. I gave them 20 days to respond, but no one returned my calls or emails.

Another individual who studies at USU was concerned about the wording of the email.

“It could be construed as an order and one that violates the First Amendment freedom of everyone who received it,” my source said. “This is an appalling violation, especially coming on the heels of so many instances where those of conservative Christian faith in the military are vilified.”

Detroit: Jimmy Carter to keynote unindicted co-conspirator ISNA convention

The CSRL (Community Service Recognition Luncheon) is a program hosted by ISNA and the ISNA Founders’ committee (IFC) to recognize an outstanding leader in the North American Muslim community. We are expecting more than 1000 guests to join this event which will take place at the Cobo Center on Saturday August 30, 2014. Tickets can be purchased online as part of the ISNA Annual Convention Registration.

Background on ISNA via gmbwatch:

As documented in a Hudson Institute report, ISNA grew directly out of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The organization has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism and during the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator as a result of what the government called “ISNA’s and NAIT’s intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestine Committee, and the defendants in this case.”

 And so Carter fits in well with this terror-linked group, as past Creeping Sharia posts have proven:

Philadelphia: Mayor Nutter Praises Hamas-linked CAIR at Airport Exhibit

Mayor Nutter, again partnering with the Hamas-linked CAIR.

via Mayor Of Philadelphia Praises CAIR At Airport Exhibit Which Includes Photo Of ‘CAIR In Action’ – Militant Islam Monitor – Militant Islam Monitor.

Opening of Airport Exhibit

Last week, Katera Moore, CAIR-Philadelphia Executive Committee Member, and I had the honor to be invited guests at the official opening of an exhibit at the Philadelphia International Airport called “Civil Rights in Philadelphia” that includes a photograph of a CAIR-Philadelphia action.

Moore & Bender are Hamas-CAIR representatives

The opening of this exhibit, in the airport’s Terminal AE, marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 by President Lyndon Johnson, with Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in attendance at the White House Ceremony.

Mayor Nutter, in his remarks, spoke movingly about how this law changed the face of American society and lead directly to the election of African Americans to public office.

And I was thrilled as well when the Mayor specifically mentioned CAIR-Philadelphia and great work we do protecting the civil rights of Muslim Americans.

MIM: Given the fact that CAIR is a defendent in a lawsuit claiming their complicity in the 9/11 attacks it is an outrage that any of their members should be allowed in the vicinity of an airport let alone have their organisation lauded and included in a picture exhibition on civil rights.

“A class action lawsuit in the name of John P. O’Neill, Sr., stemming from the 9/11 atrocity, has named the Council on American-Islamic Relations as a defendant. (For those confused about the multiple 9/11 court cases, there is help on the way at http://www.september11terrorlitigation.com/.) Here are the paragraphs of Estate of John P. O’Neill, Sr. et al. vs. Al Baraka Investment and Development Corporation dealing with CAIR’s role in the events of September 11, 2001, from the second amended class action complaint, filed today:

86. Council on American Islamic Relations and CAIR Canada (collectively, CAIR), have aided, abetted, and materially sponsored and al Qaeda and international terrorism. CAIR is an outgrowth of the Hamas front group the Islamic Association of Palestine. The FBI’s former associate director in charge of Investigative and Counter-Intelligence Operations described the Islamic Association of Palestine as an organization that has directly supported Hamas military goals and is a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants. It has produced videotapes that are very hate-filled, full of vehement propaganda. It is an organization that has supported direct confrontation.

87. CAIR and CAIR-Canada have, since their inception, been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism. These organizations play a unique role in the terrorist network. They emanate from the notorious HAMAS terrorist organization and like so many of the terrorism facilitating charities named and indicted by the United States government they are engaged in fund raising under the guise of assisting humanitarian causes they are, in reality, a key player in international terrorism. The unique role played by CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to manipulate the legal systems of the United States and Canada in a manner that allows them to silence critics, analysts, commentators, media organizations, and government officials by leveling false charges of discrimination, libel, slander and defamation. In addition, both organizations have actively sought to hamper governmental anti-terrorism efforts by direct propaganda activities aimed at police, first-responders, and intelligence agencies through so-called sensitivity training. Their goal is to create as much self-doubt, hesitation, fear of name-calling, and litigation within police departments and intelligence agencies as possible so as to render such authorities ineffective in pursuing international and domestic terrorist entities.

88. The role of CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to wage PSYOPS (psychological warfare) and disinformation activities on behalf of Whabbi-based [Wahhabi-based, DP] Islamic terrorists throughout North America. They are the intellectual “shock troops” of Islamic terrorism. In the years and months leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 these organizations were very effective in helping to ensure that North American law enforcement and intelligence officials were sufficiently deaf, dumb, and blind to help pave the way for the attacks on the United States. The role played by these entities is an absolutely essential part of the mix of forces arrayed against the United States as they help soften-up targeted countries so as to facilitate and enhance the likelihood for a successful attack…”

Florida: Hamas spray painted on cars, swastikas on synagogue

Shortly after a CAIR-sponsored Hamas rally.

via Synagogue Vandalized In NE Miami-Dade « CBS Miami. h/t BNI

safe_image.php_1

(CBSMiami) – For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s Jewish community.

Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah, at 1000 NE 175th Street, in northeast Miami-Dade.

“It was the worst thing that one wants to see on his own place of worship,” said a member of the temple.

A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m.

“As I was rolling by I noticed some coloring on the wall,” said Yona Lunger. “I back up again, looked again and I said ‘wow, it’s a swastika’. It’s very disturbing, very disturbing.”

On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue.

“They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.

The two vehicles were covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese, but it’s the meaning behind the words that left many in the predominantly Jewish community concerned.

“Since it was a Jewish holiday people were going back and forth and it was the talk of the neighborhood and they were all scared,” added Joshua. “That we have a hate crime in our own Jewish neighborhood.”

“Everyone was shocked,” said Rachel, whose car was also targeted. “No one knew what was going on, we’re like this is America, this is Miami. Why would we be targeted here? We’re supposed to be safe, free from anti-semitism.

With the escalating aggression between Israel and Hamas in the Middle East, some are wondering if the right abroad has now made it to their own home turf.

“It’s terrible and it really shows that the Islamic terrorists have taken this fight to the United States,” said Mark Goldstein.

It shows that any Muslim in the U.S. at any time can and eventually will show their true colors.

As the deadly month of jihad closes, Obama extends ‘warmest wishes to Muslims’

via The White House:

Office of the Press Secretary

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families.  This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate.  While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.

History is clear that no Muslim contributed to the fabric of the United States, so the question to be asked is the nuance of Obama’s statement. What nation is he referring to when he says “our nation”?

That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration.  Eid Mubarak.

As has been noted repeatedly, Ramadan is the “month of jihad” and Muslims worldwide have proven that again this year with deadly results.

In the United States, Hamas is here. They’ve been here. Now they are coming out of the closet. They are growing more violent and more emboldened as local police and the race-baiting DOJ do absolutely nothing.

As their numbers grow, so will their violence.

Philadelphia: City Hall turns into mosque for taxpayer-funded Iftar service

via Iftar service in City Hall a success.

The City of Philadelphia held its 2nd annual Iftar, in recognition of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, on July 15 at the Mayor’s Reception Hall.

Roughly 200 people, including Muslim community leaders, business professionals and elected officials attended the Iftar, which is the “nightly meal eaten by Muslims who have fasted during the day as an observation of Ramadan.”

“The most outstanding thing is the opportunity for unity in the Islamic community,” said Salima Suswell, an event spokesperson. She added that “like many religions” the different congregations within Islam “don’t get to share time with each other because they are so busy working in their respective communities. The Iftar is an opportunity for them to get together and celebrate the month of Ramadan.”

The ceremony featured youth presentations, a Maghrib prayer, spoken word and remarks from Mayor Michael Nutter; Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. and Ryan N. Boyer, business manager for the Laborers District Council, who hosted the Iftar; Katera Y. Moore, of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); and Khalid Blankinship. Ph.D., who gave the keynote address.

“Philadelphia is a city founded on the principles of religious freedom and tolerance [and] I have tremendous respect for the many, many members of the Muslim community,” Nutter said.

“And we all would do well to better understand the many religions practiced in our city, across the country and around the world. The people in Philadelphia who practice the faith of Islam are people who worship regularly, look after their children, are actively engaged in their community and are peace loving, law abiding citizens of Philadelphia.”

Dearborn Heights clerk facing allegations of misconduct after thwarting Arab voter fraud

Muslim voter fraud has crept up in Minnesota and Ohio and Tennessee and Michigan and Michigan again and…

via The Arab American News

Dearborn Heights City Clerk Walter J. Prusiewicz submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday, July 22, amid allegations he’d intimidated Arab American voters who were trying to cast absentee ballots for the upcoming mid-term primary.

However on Thursday, he rescinded his resignation letter, telling reporters he would serve out his term.

According to Fatina Abdrabboh, the Michigan director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC-MI), several Arab American residents of the city filed complaints with the organization over the last two weeks because they faced excuses preventing them from voting at the clerk’s office.

Abdrabboh said the excuses ranged from statements that absentee ballots would be mailed to the voter, to claims that the voter did not have proper identification. She forwarded a report of the complaints to city officials, who either ignored her inquiry or dismissed her claims outright.

In an interview with The Arab American News, Dearborn Heights Mayor Dan Paletko distanced himself from Prusiewicz, calling for either the secretary of state or the Wayne County clerk to oversee the elections in the city. He also confirmed that some ballots were denied.

“The city clerk is elected separately,” Paletko said. “I had a chat with him. I do not fully understand why the absentee ballots were denied. The reasons he provided were more technical than practical.”

The mayor said he takes the allegations seriously. He added that challenging absentee ballot requests is a concern, because it runs the risk of denying citizens’ right to vote.

“Voting is the primary right established in a democracy,” he said. “There is a significant reasonable doubt being placed over the vote. To assist the process, we have to remove that doubt by having a new party run the elections.”

He added that he fears the story will bring negative national attention to the area, which is already struggling with image and looking like a “third world country” because of the Detroit water crisis. Hence, he said, he wants the election to not be handled by the city clerk’s office.

Clearly not the only reason Dearbornistan is looking like a third world country.

Abdrabboh said she is disappointed in the city’s lack of response to the local Arab American community. She said she reported the story exclusively to The Arab American News on July 23, in an attempt to relay the message to the community as soon as possible.

The ADC believes the denial of the absentee ballots by the clerk’s office was racially motivated.

“The number of complaints is alarming,” said Abdrabboh. “As a community organization we do our homework. We have gathered that non-Arab absentee applications have been processed, whereas Arab American applications have not been.”

Abdrabboh added that turning down Arab Americans requesting absentee ballots is a violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which prohibits intimidation of minority groups at the polls.

In his resignation letter, Prusiewicz cited a number of reasons for stepping down, including “the accusations”, which he denies. Prusiewicz’s letter went on to state that despite his resignation, he will continue his duties until after the August 5 primary.

In an interview with reporters on Thursday, Prusiewicz said several absentee ballots were disregarded because there had been no signatures on them. He said he had been in contact with state election officials, who told him to not process them.

Prusiewicz also told the Dearborn Press & Guide that he would not move forward with his resignation. Abdrabboh said she is concerned about the back-peddling.

ADC is calling for the attorney general and the FBI to launch a full investigation into the claims.

Paletko said the county clerk and the secretary of state have the power to conduct an investigation once they agree to take over the elections in the city.

 Will Holder be enforcing voter fraud in Dearborn?

Muslim women in Virginia & Washington arrested, led al-Shabaab jihad fundraising network

via FBI — Three Defendants Arrested on Charges of Providing Material Support to a Foreign Terrorist Organization. h/t TROP

WASHINGTON—Three defendants were arrested today on charges of providing material support to al-Shabaab, a designated foreign terrorist organization that is conducting a violent insurgency campaign in Somalia. Two additional defendants are fugitives in Kenya and Somalia.

A superseding indictment was issued on June 26, 2014, by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia, charging the defendants with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and 20 counts of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization. The indictment was unsealed after the following arrest warrants were executed today:

  • Muna Osman Jama, 34, was arrested at her home in Reston, Virginia;
  • Hinda Osman Dhirane, 44, was arrested at her home in Kent, Washington;
  • Farhia Hassan was arrested at her residence in the Netherlands;
  • Fardowsa Jama Mohamed is a fugitive in Kenya and the subject of a pending arrest warrant; and
  • Barira Hassan Abdullahi is a fugitive in Somalia and the subject of a pending arrest warrant.

If convicted, each defendant faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison on each count in the indictment.

The Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahidin, commonly known as al-Shabaab, is a terrorist group conducting a violent insurgency campaign in Somalia. In 2008, the U.S. government designated al-Shabaab as a foreign terrorist organization, and in February 2012, the leaders of al-Shabaab and the terrorist group al-Qa’ida publicly announced the merger of the two groups.

According to court records, defendants Muna Osman Jama and Hinda Osman Dhirane were the leaders of an al-Shabaab fundraising conspiracy operating in the United States, Kenya, the Netherlands, Somalia and elsewhere. Jama and Dhirane allegedly directed a network composed primarily of women who provided monthly payments that were coordinated, facilitated and tracked by the defendants to their conduits in Kenya and Somalia. According to court records, Jama was principally responsible for sending money to Kenya through her conduit, defendant Fardowsa Jama Mohamed, while Dhirane was primarily responsible for sending money to Somalia through her conduit, defendant Barira Hassan Abdullahi.

According to court records, the defendants would refer to the money they sent overseas as “living expenses,” and they repeatedly used code words such as “orphans” and “brothers in the mountains” to refer to al-Shabaab fighters, and “camels” to refer to trucks needed by al-Shabaab. The money transfers often were broken down into small amounts as low as $50 or $100, and the funds were intended for use by al-Shabaab insurgents operating in Somalia.

 No word on their immigration status, what mosque they attend nor who they were collecting money from in the U.S. to fund jihad around the world.

Tennessee: Sharia creeping into Republican primary, voter fraud too

More on this post via Tennessee Council 4 political justice.

Aljabbary/Mohammed is running in the Republican primary for Tennessee Senate District 21 in Davidson County (Nashville), the seat previously held by Democrat Douglas Henry for over 40 years.   Haslam has more in common with him than he has with our conservative legislators.

Aljabbary’s website says he has “experience in refugee resettlement and welfare laws.”

Haslam’s director of legislation, Leslie Hafner is the business partner of Chamber of Commerce lobbyist David McMahan. Chambers of Commerce like the Nashville and US Chamber support refugee resettlement for the exploitation of ‘serf’ labor from other countries while US citizens line up for work. Haslam also continues to explore expanding access to Medicaid (TennCare) in Tennessee, something else the TN Chamber of Commerce supports.

Aljabbary is a Kurdish Muslim who used to be president of his mosque. He follows the Quran and the Sunna of Mohammed. Memphis Islamic Center’s Sheikh Yasir Qadhi, described by the New York Times as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam,” says that the Quran “destroys” American capitalism.

Haslam says he is concerned about income inequality and that “Republicans should not deny evidence that wealth is being spread unevenly or write off such concerns as Democratic propaganda.”

Aljabbary was an original supporter of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC).

Haslam and Dept. of Safety Commissioner Gibbons supported the formation of AMAC.

Activists from Aljabbrary’s mosque have their offices in the building owned by amnesty supporting organization, Conexion Americas.

Haslam is working toreelect pro-amnesty, our supposedly conservative senator, Lamar Alexander.

Aljabbary’s Quran tells Muslims not to take non-Muslims for their patrons or protectors. The former president of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Society of North America says this means that “It is the duty of Muslims to patronize Muslims.” It probably also means that Muslims in Aljabbary’s district will vote in the Republican primary for the first time.

Haslam also supports crossover voting; he admits it helped him get elected also.

Aljabbary voted Democrat in the past. He has voted Republican only one time. State Executive Committee (SEC) member Robert Duvall had to vouch for Aljabbary’s Republican credentials so he could be a Republican candidate. Robert Duvall is seeking reelection to his SEC seat in Aljabbary’s district. Political trade?

Seem like Haslam has more in common with him than with our real conservative legislators.

Obama sending $47M in “humanitarian aid” to border…of Gaza Strip

via US to send $47M in humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip | Fox News. h/t BNI

The U.S. is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

A State Department breakdown of the aid that was released Monday said nearly a third of the money — $15 million — will go to the United Nations’ refugee mission in Gaza.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was expected to discuss the aid with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in a meeting late Monday in Cairo.

Kerry arrived in the Egyptian capital only hours earlier in a U.S. push to help broker a truce between Israel and the militant group Hamas that controls Gaza.

 

A “predominantly Muslim neighborhood”…in Texas

Which came first, the mosque or the predominantly Muslim neighborhood? via KXXV-TV – Central Texas News for Waco, Temple, Killeen. h/t the excellent, yet apparently now defunct, Halalporkshop (if you want to post here let us know)

KILLEEN – Some vandalism that occurred overnight Tuesday, July 1, has some neighbors from a predominantly Muslim neighborhood on edge.

Four families on Omar Dr. and Medina Dr. in Killeen, found their car tires slashed Wednesday morning. Two similar incidents occurred on Barcelona Dr. and Onion Rd.

Ausaf Khan has lived near the Islamic Center of Greater Killeen on Omar Dr. since 2005.

He said this type of vandalism is unusual in this area.

“This is a peaceful neighborhood. Never had [a] problem,” said Khan.

He said he does not believe he was a target, but he still feels uneasy about the situation.

“Whoever did this could do more than [what he did]. He could come with a gun next time and he could [fire], so that is kind of scary,” said Khan.

One neighbor who did not want to go on camera said this could be a hate crime because most of the victims are Muslims from Pakistan.

However, Killeen Police Department Public Information Officer Carroll Smith said police did not believe this is a hate crime. She said the victims did not tell officers they felt targeted and similar crimes happened in two other areas of the city.

 It starts with a few Muslims. Then comes the mosque. The next thing you know it’s a predominantly Muslim neighborhood.

New Hampshire: ADL Interfaith Summer Camp Infiltrated by Supporters of al Qaeda Terrorist

via Articles: ADL’s Interfaith Summer Camp Infiltrated by Supporters of Al Qaeda Terrorist.

By Ilya Feoktistov and Charles Jacobs

How would you feel if you sent your son or daughter to an Anti-Defamation League summer camp only to find out that the camp’s youth coordinators are supporters of a convicted Al Qaeda terrorist?

Brothers Bilal and Ammaar Mirza have been involved with Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL’s) Camp Interfaith in beautiful Andover, New Hampshire since they were teenagers, first as campers and then as staffers. Yet at the very same time, they have also been active in a Boston area extremist Islamist movement that is viciously anti-American and tinged with anti-Semitism, a movement that has coalesced around the cause of a local jihadist celebrity, Tarek Mehanna.

Tarek Mehanna, a Sudbury native, is currently serving a 23 year sentence in Federal prison for conspiracy to provide material support to Al Qaeda, conspiracy to murder in a foreign country, and lying to the FBI about his attempts to join up with Al Qaeda in Yemen. Tarek Mehanna liked to refer to himself as “the media wing of Al Qaeda in Iraq” and told his friends that he felt Osama Bin Laden was like a father to him. He and his co-conspirators had visited the 9/11 Ground Zero site in NYC, where he snapped photos of himself grinning and holding up the index finger salute used by Islamic extremists.

Inexplicably then, the ADL hired a man who considers someone who gloats over the vicious mutilation of American troops and the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11 “an endearing human being” who “exude[s] the qualities of intrinsic humanity.” And ADL hired him to work with and influence children entrusted to its care, If having his moral views doesn’t disqualify Bilal from becoming an ADL youth camp staffer, what would?

Bilal and Ammaar are not just random young men who happened to work summers at ADL’s camp: our research indicates that the entire Mirza family is as close to the ADL as it is to the Mehanna clan.

In fact, young Bilal and his father Farooq Mirza were prominently honored at the ADL’s 2013 Nation of Immigrants Seder. Farooq was given the honor of being a co-chair of the event together with such notables as former Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Newton Mayor Setti Warren.

Bilal Mirza was a member of the ADL Seder’s planning committee. ADL New England’s Executive Director Robert Trestan personally introduced Bilal at the podium and asked “those of you who came here with children, those of you who have kids at home” to consider sending them to the interfaith summer camp for some quality time with Bilal. After taking the podium, Bilal proceeded to quote a Quranic verse traditionally interpreted as rebuking Jews for deviating from divine truth.

Bilal seems to be advancing at ADL. In August 2013, he worked with the organization to expand the summer camp program into a year-long program called “ADL Interfaith Youth Leadership Coalition.” The launch was held at Babson College, where Bilal is the campus Muslim chaplain. Northeastern University had to dismiss its own Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Faaruuq, after our organization exposed his own support of Tarek Mehanna. But given the “Jewish stamp of approval” provided him by the ADL, it’s no surprise to see Bilal remain in his perch at Babson and rise to such positions of influence where he can spread his views to New England’s Muslim youth.

As highly regarded as they are by ADL, Bilal and Farooq Mirza also seem much esteemed by the notorious Saudi-funded and Al Qaeda terrorist-founded Islamic Society of Boston (ISB). Farooq Mirza was given a place of honor right next to former Boston Mayor Menino at the ISB’s Roxbury mosque grand opening in 2009.

Bilal Mirza seems close with the Imam of ISB Cambridge, where the Boston Marathon bombers prayed and, according to the FBI, posed for pictures with the mosque’s Al Qaeda “black flag of jihad.”

Houston: Mosque protests plans for new bar

80aa3db9c44e45278100455e765336c7

Houston, we have a problem…with sharia. The Islamic Society of Greater Houston wants sharia to take precedent over local zoning laws. Also note how dhimmi Nicole Appelby titled the article, via Ramadan ruined? Mosque and neighbors protest plans for new Houston bar – CultureMap Houston. h/t LOOK UNDER THE BURKA

A proposed new Little Woodrow’s location — the seventh Houston patio bar in the growing chain — is drawing opposition from neighborhood residents on an eclectic Upper Kirby street that includes a mosque, farmers market, office buildings and expensive townhomes.

Over the weekend, customers at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market noticed a sign stating that the chain has made a request to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for a permit for a Little Woodrow’s Kirby Ice House. The sign is posted on a vacant lot on Eastside Street between the farmers market and the Bammel Park townhome subdivision and across the street from the headquarters of Dress for Success and the Islamic Society of Greater Houston.

Plans include a rustic 5,000 square-foot-building with a 2,000 square-foot outdoor patio centered around a large oak tree on the property, Little Woodrow’s owner Danny Evans revealed to CultureMap. “We are a well-known neighborhood style bar. I’ve always put the locations in the upscale, prime areas of Houston that have the need for a neighborhood gathering place,” Evans said.

Evans argues there is a need for a “really nice” neighborhood bar in the densely populated area with lots of professionals within a radius of a few blocks. “I am sure there are going to be people who wish that this bar wasn’t going to be there but their options are either us or a high rise office building. It’s a great piece of property, and it is what it is,” he said.

But officials for Dress for Success, located almost directly across the street from the proposed bar, say they are concerned with security problems. Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, located just a little over 300 feet from the proposed bar, are worried that the rowdy atmosphere will upset the spiritual nature of the mosque where hundreds pray. And the head of the Bammel Park Homeowners Association, located next door to the lot where the bar may be built, is troubled about the possibility of excessive noise in the quiet neighborhood.

The Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which has been located on Eastside Street for over 30 years, is concerned that the bar will endanger the spiritual nature of the oldest and most centrally-located mosque in Houston. “Having a bar across the street would threaten the sacredness of our services,”  said a mosque spokesman who asked not to be identified.

Officials are also concerned about parking and security issues as worshippers come to the mosque at night for meals (the mosque serves over 200 meals a night to families this month during Ramadan) and other social services. They are worried that worshippers could potentially be verbally harassed as they walk past the bar from the bus stop on Richmond Avenue to the mosque.

Mosque officials believe the new bar is violating the spirit if not the letter of the law as TABC regulations prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages “within 300 feet of a public or private school, church and/or public hospital.” They believe that Little Woodrow’s moved their front door around to the side to meet the requirement. Little Woodrow’s owner Evans said no such changes were made. “This was never an issue and the entrance was always more than 300 feet away,” he said.

The mosque did not hear about the plans of the bar to open until Steve Bolton, president of the Bammel Park Homeowners Association, sent out an email to the entire neighborhood. Bolton believes the bar will drive down property values and increase the noise level. The upscale townhome complex is only a few feet away from the proposed Little Woodrow’s property line.

Parking is also a major issue, Bolton said. “If the bar were to open, students from Lamar High School (who park in the area) will be parking right across the street from a bar,” he said.

Evans said the bar will have more than 300 parking spaces and the big live oak tree in the backyard will remain, creating a park-like feel with a lot of outdoor space. He said that a fence will be raised to eight feet at neighbors’ suggestions and other landscaping accommodations will be made.

The bar also plans to feature over 60 beers on tap with state of the art televisions and audio system. Evans said this location will have high-end furnishings with the same rustic Texas ranch decor from all of the other locations.

“We are aware of our surroundings and we are taking that into consideration with our design. Little Woodrow’s is not a loud place,” he said.

Parking spaces, noise, housing prices – sounds very much like those who oppose mosques in their neighborhoods yet always lose.

They’re crossing the borders illegally and imposing sharia once they establish fortresses in the host nation.
