An update on this post – Michigan: Terror-linked CAIR & DOJ Shakedown Township for $1.7M to Build Islamic School. Well, it’s not just an Islamic school/mosque – it’s an Islamic enclave. Taxation for Islamization!
The township will pay MIA $1.7 million to settle the CAIR-MI suit, which was filed in 2012. The group’s attorneys say the sum is “one of the largest-ever RLUIPA settlements.” The settlement also allows MIA to proceed with plans to build a 70,000-square-foot Islamic school along with a small residential development that serves as a buffer between it and an existing subdivision.
CAIR-MI said the settlement, one of the largest since RLUIPA was enacted, grants MIA the right to build a 70,000 square foot Islamic school, a residential development consisting of 22 duplex units and three single family homes, and a park. The settlement also awards MIA $1.7 million.
How many Muslims…Syrian Muslim “refugees” perhaps, hand-picked – for their sharia adherence and stealth jihadist abilities – might fit into 22 duplex units?
The Michigan Islamic Academy was never planning to abide by any zoning laws or the interests of any neighborhood they break ground on. They have multiple sites and always expand beyond the original plan sold to city officials, residents and zoning commissions. They had already started expanding in 2014, more than a year before the DOJ officially got involved in forcing the Islamic enclave on Pittsfield.
