Virginia planning commission recommends mosque proposal against citizens wishes

Zoning Jihad. via Henrico Planning Commission recommends mosque proposal that failed three years ago | Richmond Times-Dispatch.

A site for a Muslim mosque, bolstered by a decade-old federal law but not by neighborhood sentiment, received Henrico County Planning Commission approval Thursday night after a public hearing that raised concerns ranging from noise levels to hate levels.

First proposed three years ago by a group of Muslim investors but defeated by a 3-2 Board of Supervisors vote then, the project won a rezoning recommendation Thursday night that is the first step in the construction of a 10,500-square-foot facility off Staples Mill Road in an area bordered by cottage-style homes and small businesses.

“We’re cautiously optimistic and plan to move forward,” attorney John Mizell Jr. said of the recommended zoning change, from office to residential use. A mosque could not exist under the current office zoning.

The Board of Supervisors is expected to take up the issue sometime in August, Mizell said. A maximum of about 100 people would use the facility at any given time, he said.

Mizell told the board and about 30 residents opposing the project that a 2000 federal law, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, designed in part to strengthen freedom of religious expression and buttressed by court opinions since the mosque was considered in 2008, created a new dynamic for the mosque vote.

The 3.6-acre property on Impala Drive near Hermitage and Hilliard Roads has been vacant and has failed to attract development for more than 20 years.

On Thursday night, area businessmen questioned whether a house of worship was appropriate for an area with heavy truck traffic, loud construction noises, narrow streets and small industries.

“We shouldn’t have to change our way of operating just to be a good neighbor,” said Bob Leahey, who operates a fire-suppression business that is near the proposed site. “This is kind of an assault on the neighborhood.”

But businessmen and residents wondered, too, if the mosque might generate bothersome noise.

And Sue Blake, calling herself a “not politically correct” person and an American, openly described the mosque as possibly a place preaching hate and destruction. She brought a copy of the Quran to the hearing and a DVD titled “Homegrown Jihad.”

Majid Khan, a Henrico investor in the project, had to be cut off as he passionately spoke of his own patriotism and love of American values, and he scolded some speakers for describing all Muslims as hate mongerers bent on killing.

“Some people came (to the United States) early and some people came late,” he said, portraying the country as settled by immigrants over time but unified in their love for the country.

Mizell, as he did three years ago, pointed to similar zoning changes that allowed the establishment of churches elsewhere in the county.

Khan said the finished mosque would cost $500,000 to $750,000 and would also be a community center. It is expected to serve a north-of-the-James Muslim community of about 4,000 people.

Blake and other opponents said after the vote that they will be out in force when the supervisors take up the proposal.

  1. If these Muslims truly have a “Love of the country,”
    they would not try to change our cultural heritage and replace it with barbarism. Sexism, sexual mutilation, polygamy, pedophilia, beheading, forced conversion, etc. etc. etc. as commanded by the Koran have no place in a civilized society.

  2. HELLooo TURD

    • DZUL, well hello again you sand-pounding jackass! Missed ya’!

      You never answered my invatation to meet up for Chi and discuss Islam when I get back from from your Motherland Iraq.

      I’ll be back in 3 weeks…let me know where you’d like to meet up. Try to make it somewhere in the south, I’ll be in Mississippi.

      Also, where did you learn English? Ever been to DLI? Do you know what DLI is? Which cat litter box are you particularly from in the Middle East?

      Hollar’ back jack-ass……Dave

    • ahh the drooling jackass is back! making nonsense posts as can be expected of mentally retarded
      it’s Friday, drool, shouldn’t you be in the mosque banging your head on the floor?

      what? oh sorry- that’s how you became brain damaged!! yes

      it’s Friday- the tradition – go to mosque- learn to hate – go and riot maybe burn a church and kill non Muslims
      you are not doing the JIHAD properly, drool
      Moahmmed said your contribution on internet is worth crap compared to suicide homicide- go get your vest!! time to BLOW your ass to paradise.

    • It is interesting how the moderator here lets the muzlims show who they really are. Hopefully, they will become emboldened enough to send their letters to the lackey media and zoning commissions who are preaching jihad along with them. It would be interesting to see how these organizations respond once they realize the depth of evil and depravity they are dealing with. (and it would certainly make a fascinating topic for any ph.D looking for a social-psychology dissertation subject, i.e ” Turds in the Mouth: Why Muzlim Men Are Obsessed With Sexual Scatology” (or scatalogical sex, take your choice…

    • Dunno if last post took, so just in case: I was thinking about how even Freud would have had a hard time figuring out the obsession muzlim men have with bathroom habbits and homosexuality….and that some aspiring doctoral candidate write a thesis on it….possible title:
      urds In The Mouth: Why Muzlim Men Show Affinity and Obsession for Scatological Sex.” (or “for Sexual Scatology, take your choice.)

      And these folks think they’re going to take the White House? (Well, only if obammy gave it to ’em, and then the rest of America would just take it back.)

      • well stand with, it is much more insane that you can ever imagine- on youtube they have videos prescibing how to act in the bathroom-
        while I do admire cleanliness, just for sake of health and odor control, as courtesy to others, Muslims have RULES for bathroom. Muslims have rules for the most intimate and tiniest details of their lives – there is no freedom of any part of life under ISLAM- a rule for which hand must wipe-Did you know they think jinns (evil spirits) and shaitan (satan) can enter you in the bathroom. No Koran or anything with name of Allah may enter bathroom, no praying in there.
        Of course the most sexually repressed are super perverts- frustrated and deprived of actual sex, many thimes they do homosex. Pakistan downloads the most porn of any nation- in Iran they can marry for 2 hours to F**K whores and then get divorced – I suppose they think ALLAh is so stupid he is fooled by such fakery.Most of these countries have large population of males under 30 making them more easily prone to violence- add to that, science has determined males who smell each other’s pheromones (scents) in close proxity (like soccer games or mosques) make them feel angry and violent.

  3. Let’s face it CITIZENS just do not want muslimites around! Moslem track record of supporting community is zero-except if it is muslimites who are helped. Just goes to show how ignorant and weak muslims are when they need the government fight their battles.

  4. Time to get rid of the simpletons who are allowing the colonizers to erect their symbols of conquest on our lands. Change the laws and oust thefools or you’re done. WAKE UP!

    People with low self esteem are selling you out simply so they can feel better about themselves, the common theme for most self-righteous idiots.

    No more mosques or bastions of islam on our lands.I await the day when the existing ones are removed from Western soil too.

  5. Just like Fairfax County, which gave the Islamic Saudi Academy whatever the academy wanted — never mind the objections by residents of the neighborhood.

    This kind of thing — dhimmitude, really — is going on all over America. And in some unlikely locations too.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
