New Jersey town forced to pay $7.75 million to Muslims to build mega-mosque

via Atlas Shrugs who writes:

In a striking violation of the establishment clause, Obama’s lawless administration is imposing the sharia nationwide, allowing the rampant construction of rabats and jihad recruitment centers at a time when we should be monitoring the mosques and restricting construction of  Muslim Brotherhood beachheads and Islamic State madrassas.

 Many churches and synagogues and Wal-Marts and what have you have been unable to build because of zoning laws. So why is Muslim supremacism enshrined in DOJ policy? And why are they given special rights? The United States of America is based on individual rights — no special rights for special classes.

 These proposed  giant mosques in small residential neighborhoods with even smaller Muslim populations are “rabats,” a beachhead to spread Islam. The first rabat appeared at the time of Muhammad.

 The Prophet imposed his rule on parts of Arabia through a series of ghazvas, or razzias (the origin of the English word “raid”). The ghazva was designed to terrorize the infidels, convince them that their civilization was doomed and force them to submit to Islamic rule. Those who participated in the ghazva were known as the ghazis, or raiders.

After each ghazva, the Prophet ordered the creation of a rabat—or a point of contact at the heart of the infidel territory raided. The rabat consisted of an area for prayer, a section for the raiders to eat and rest and facilities to train and prepare for future razzias [raids].

Unfortunately for many in the rural central New Jersey neighborhood, the mosque will be built by a luxury apartment complex. Details via Bridgewater, mosque settlement reaches $7.75 million

– There will be no mosque on Mountaintop Road.

Instead, under the terms of a settlement between the township and the Al Falah Center, a mosque will be built between Routes 202-206 and 287 on a 15-acre lot the township will buy for $2.75 million.

The township will exchange that lot for the former Redwood Inn property on Mountaintop Road where the mosque originally was proposed.

In addition, the township’s insurance carrier will pay the Al Falah Center $5 million for alleged damages, costs and attorney fees in exchange for dropping its lawsuit against the township.

The township will use $815,000 from its open space trust fund and a $1.935 million bond ordinance to buy the property between Harding and West Foothill roads, south of the 80-unit Woodmont Square at Bridgewater apartment complex.

Members of the Al Falah Center were satisfied with the settlement.

“I think it’s a just result,” said Omar T. Mohammedi, a member of Al Falah’s board. “We’re just excited we will have a place of worship.”

Mohammedi said that because plans have to be developed for the property, no timeline has been drawn for the submission of plans and construction.

“It’s a great site,” he said.

The settlement, approved unanimously Monday by the township council, ends a bitter three-year dispute that landed in federal court and already has cost the township hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

But Council President Matthew Moench said the settlement could potentially save the township “an enormous amount of money” if the municipality lost the lawsuit.

Mayor Dan Hayes said the settlement prevents Al Falah from seeking attorney fees allowed by federal law that would have exceeded the township’s insurance coverage.

Without a settlement, the mayor said, the costs would have been paid by taxpayers.

Al Falah Center will have 20 months to gain the necessary approvals to build the mosque, said Kevin Coakley, the attorney representing the township in the litigation.

Coakley said the township has agreed to “cooperate” with the Al Falah Center in the approval process.

Because the site is zoned for houses of worship and has access to a highway, the lot meets the criteria in the township’s zoning ordinance. That zoning ordinance, adopted after the Al Falah Center applied to build the mosque on Mountaintop Road, was at the center of the legal dispute

The settlement leaves that ordinance in effect.

“The preservation of our residential uses and the ability to zone uses appropriate for their locations is a critical right the township fought to preserve,” Hayes said. “This settlement leaves our ordinance intact, ends our exposure to the almost unlimited costs of further litigation and allows all parties to move forward.”

Hayes said the township has not decided what to do with the 7-acre Mountaintop Road property.

The Route 202-206 property has a $803,600 assessment and the 2013 property taxes were $16,634. In 2012, the township approved a 39-unit townhouse development for the property that was never built.

The settlement also calls for the suspension of the planning board hearings that started in January on Al Falah’s proposal to build the mosque on the former Redwood Inn property.

The hearings often featured contentious exchanges between neighbors and witnesses testifying for the Al Falah Center on issues such as the size of prayer mats used to determine the number of worshipers the proposed mosque could accommodate, a number that would determine the required number of parking spaces.

Neighbors to the proposed mosque on Mountaintop Road hired lawyers to represent them before the board.

The legal battle between the township and the Al Falah Center began after the congregation applied in January 2011 to construct the mosque on the site of the former catering hall.

Two months later, the council adopted an ordinance that limited sites for a house of worship to certain roads because of traffic-volume concerns. That ordinance would have shifted the mosque proposal to the Zoning Board of Adjustment, where requirements for granting a use variance are more stringent.

After the dismissal, the Al Falah Center filed suit in federal court, alleging that the township violated federal law by enacting a land-use ordinance that treats religious institutions on less than equal terms than nonreligious institutions. The accelerated passage of the ordinance was “strong circumstantial evidence” of the township’s intent to discriminate against the mosque, according to court papers.

“The case speaks for itself,” Mohammedi said.

But Moench emphasized that the settlement concluded that the township has “done nothing wrong.”

In September 2013, federal Judge Michael Shipp sided with the Al Falah Center and ruled that the mosque application must be heard by the Planning Board without applying the standards in the ordinance.

Shipp issued an injunction preventing the township from enforcing the ordinance. The judge also ordered the planning board to reopen the hearings on the mosque proposal.

Though the township appealed the ruling, the second round of hearings began. As part of the settlement, the township’s appeal will be dropped.

In June, retired federal judge Stephen Orlofsky was named as mediator in the dispute. Hayes said he participated in hours of negotiations over several months to settle the dispute.

“It’s been a long and arduous journey,” Township Attorney William Savo said.


For the rest of New Jersey, the long arduous journey (to ruin) is just beginning.

The mosque must certainly have foreign backers, if you recall the Al Falah Center had four high-powered law firms and the Feds working on its behalf.

New Jersey: Muslim substitute teacher arrested for sexually assaulting 16-year-old student

Kids aren’t only be indoctrinated with Islamic propaganda in school…but Substitute teacher at Manchester Regional charged with sexually assaulting student in Wayne – NorthJersey.com. h/t Lisa

A substitute teacher at Manchester Regional High School was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old male student, authorities said.

Linda Hardan, 21, was arrested Friday for an incident that allegedly occurred in Wayne on Thursday, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes said in a news release.

Passaic County Prosecutor's Office

Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office

Manchester Regional High School, which serves students from Haledon, North Haledon and Prospect Park, is located in Haledon.

Hardan apparently transported the juvenile – not during school hours — to a location in Wayne where the alleged sexual assault occurred, said Gyselle Da Silva, senior assistant prosecutor.

Da Silva said she could not disclose how the office learned of the incident as it remains under investigation.

Authorities charged Hardan, who lives in Prospect Park and had attended Manchester Regional herself, with sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal sexual contact, Valdes said.

Hardan remains in Passaic County Jail on $250,000 bail, according to jail records.

If convicted, Hardan faces up to 10 years in prison on the charge of sexual assault, up to five on the charge of endangering the welfare of a child and up to 18 months on the charge of criminal sexual contact, Valdes said.

New Jersey: Judge rules trial of Muslim rapist during week of Sep. 11 not impartial

Remember this post: New Jersey Judge Rules Islamic Sharia Law Trumps U.S. Law. Sharia never sleeps, it only creeps, and the legal jihad is relentless. Muslims now want their trials halted if they take place on or near 9/11. What week has passed that hasn’t seen a deadly attack by Muslims? By Muslim logic and at this rate, they’d never go on trial.

WAPO asks a question although the judge clearly answered it. via Unfair to try Muslim defendant over anniversary of September 11 attacks? – The Washington Post.

From State v. M.R. (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. Nov. 18, 2014):

Defendant’s trial began on September 8, 2010, and ended on September 22, 2010. He contends that scheduling the trial of a fundamentalist Muslim during the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, following “substantial media coverage of the Ground Zero Mosque and Quran Burning controversies,” deprived him of an impartial jury and a fair trial. He further contends the court conducted inadequate voir dire of prospective jurors to determine their attitudes about those events and defendant’s religion.

Not so, says the court; see pp. 19-27 of the opinion.

The defendant, by the way, is the same one involved in the 2009 civil restraining order case in which a New Jersey trial court accepted a “cultural defense” as to nonconsensual sex:

Most people refer to that as RAPE.

The appellate court in that earlier case quite rightly reversed the trial court’s refusal to enter the restraining order:

Defendant’s conduct in engaging in nonconsensual sexual intercourse was unquestionably knowing, regardless of his view that his religion permitted him to act as he did.

As the judge recognized, the case thus presents a conflict between the criminal law and religious precepts. In resolving this conflict, the judge determined to except defendant from the operation of the State’s statutes as the result of his religious beliefs. In doing so, the judge was mistaken.

More from the trial document:

It bears noting that the questionnaire filled out by prospective jurors was the questionnaire proposed by defendant. Significantly, defendant does not cite to one instance of allegedly inadequate voir dire.

And defendant’s questionnaire included this question: “The defendant and several witnesses, including the complaining witness, are Moroccan Muslims who believe in and practice the religion of Islam. Does that in any way cause you to question your ability to serve as an impartial juror in this case?”

The voir dire resulted in the court removing many jurors for cause, including jurors who were unable to be impartial based on prior experience with, or exposure to, domestic violence; due to the nature of the charges; and due to the inability to be fair in a case involving a Muslim following the September 11, 2001 attacks. Significantly, only one prospective juror indicated that she had read about the case. Although she believed she could be impartial, defendant used a preemptory challenge to have her removed from the jury.

In short, we see no reason to question the impartiality of any juror. More importantly, defendant has not pointed to one instance where he believes the judge should have asked a follow – up question based on a specific response given by a juror. We find no basis for disagreeing with the trial court’s conclusion that it selected an impartial jury.

Princeton: Brotherhood-founded group gets sharia food in dining halls

via Halal food now available in dining halls – The Daily Princetonian. h/t Islamist Watch.

Halal food is now available on a rotational basis in the residential college dining halls. So far, halal food has been offered two or three times a week in one dining hall each day, although a fixed schedule has not been drawn up yet.

The addition to the menu is a result of the work of the Undergraduate Student Government Dining Policy Initiative, which has been working with the campus Muslim chaplain Imam Sohaib Sultan and the Muslim Students Association since last semester to make halal food more accessible on campus.

The MSA was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Class of 2015 Senator Nihar Madhavan, who led the Dining Policy Initiative, said one of the goals of his project is to ensure that the dining options are meeting the needs of students on campus. Therefore, when President of MSA Sarah Qari ’16 expressed her concerns about the scarcity of halal options, USG started looking for ways to resolve the problem. Qari said that the goal is to make halal food available all days a week.

Qari and Sultan met with Dining Services several times once the initiative began to discuss ways to address the dietary needs of Muslims, Sultan said. He added that Dining Services was “absolutely incredible in terms of wanting to accommodate this request.”

Muslim students were also able to voice their opinions directly when representatives from Dining Services attended the MSA’s Friday prayers.

During their meetings, Qari and Sultan were able to clarify what it meant for food to be halal.

“One of the things that emerged after a while was that for a long time Dining Services thought that when we were asking for halal food, we were expecting certain ethnic foods. They were like, ‘We don’t know how to make that food,’” Sultan said. “But once we clarified to them that it can be whatever food you already make, just with halal meat, the process became so much easier. That was our opening.”

Executive Director of Campus Dining Smith Haneef declined to be interviewed.

Very telling. And that is how sharia creeps…into the smallest of openings.

Soon, like Whole Foods, all the meat will be halal albeit unmarked so no one will know. Except Haneef and the MSA.

 No surprise at Princeton where they are rewriting American history to ensure it too is halal.

New Jersey: 3rd burka bank robbery in last month

via Camden County Police Searching For Burqa-wearing Serial Bank Robber « CBS Philly.

AUDUBON, NJ (CBS) – The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is reaching out to the public for help capturing a suspected serial bank robber who wears a burqa.

Authorities say they’re looking for a man who passed a note to a clerk demanding cash at the Beneficial Bank on the 100 block of South White Horse Pike around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money, and police say he may be responsible for two other robberies at area banks.

The first happened on Sept. 17 at the Susquehanna Bank on Market Street in Camden. The second happened on Sept. 25th at the Audubon Savings Bank on South White Horse Pike in Audubon.

Police say that in all three robberies, the man was dressed in a black burqa. He’s described as a light skinned male, and in the September robberies, he fled on a BMX bike.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.

The fruits of diversity, immigration and political cowardice.

New Jersey: Second burqa bank robbery this month

A robber struck around 10 a.m. Thursday at Audubon Savings Bank on the 500 block of the White Horse Pike in Audubon. Authorities said the man, wearing gray pants and white sneaker beneath a burqa, fled with an undisclosed amount of money on a blue BMX style bike.

A similar bank heist was committed Sept. 17 at a Susquehanna Bank office in Camden. The man similarly wore a black burqa and fled from the Market Street bank on a silver BMX bike.

Authorities could not confirm the robberies were related.

Anyone with information should contact Det. Paul Audino of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office at (856) 225-8449 or Det. David Bauer of the Audubon Police Department at (856) 547-0715.

Burka bank robberies were virtually unheard of until the Muslim population explosion. No pun intended. It’s just another way Muslims are adding to the fabric of America – disguises for bank robbers.

New Jersey: Muslim Subway owner kicks out disabled U.S. veteran with service dog

Just like Muslims who drive cars for Uber. via Veteran thrown out of Subway Restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey because of service dog | 7online.com. h/t Atlas Shrugs

PATERSON, N.J. (WABC) — A disabled veteran was thrown out of a fast food restaurant because of his service dog.

The incident itself is troubling enough, but you won’t believe what happened after the Eyewitness News investigators arrived at the restaurant to demand answers.

It’s one of the most bizarre exchanges Eyewitness News has ever had on a story. Federal law is very clear: Dogs are recognized as service animals and all businesses open to the public, including restaurants, must allow them in.

But a U.S. Army veteran says a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, blatantly ignored the law, and now, he’s determined to send them a message in court.

Richard Hunter’s troubled life turned around in July when the U.S. Army veteran received a service dog from the non-profit group Dogs4Warriors. The 50-year-old suffers from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“He realizes I’m having anxiety before I do,” Richard Hunter said.

So, it was a big deal when Hunter finally took his son and a coworker to lunch a few weeks ago at a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey.

“This was huge to go out with my son for the first time in over ten years,” Hunter said.

The sign on the door seemingly said it all: “Service animals are welcome,” but Hunter claims the manager, later identified as Mitul Ahmed, said something very different.

“I may have been holding the door when he first said something. He said, ‘The dog is not allowed in here. Get the dog out of here,'” Hunter said.

“He was clearly identified as a service animal,” Eyewitness News Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace said.

“He was wearing what he has on right now,” Hunter said. “I said he was a service animal.”

“He didn’t care,” Wallace said.

“That’s exactly what he said, ‘I don’t care,'” Hunter said.

Hunter called the cops who said they couldn’t do anything. He then called the owner.

“The owner told me straight up: ‘I can refuse service to anyone I want,'” Hunter said.

That’s when Hunter reached out to disability rights attorney Robert Tandy.

“No food establishment can refuse entry to a service animal,” Tandy said.

“Plain and simple,” Wallace said.

“Simple as that,” Tandy said.

When Eyewitness News found the manager, Mitul Ahmed, behind the counter he denied everything.

“You’re not Mitul Ahmed,” Wallace said.

“No, he’s not here,” Ahmed said.

Oh, and that sign on the door, suddenly changed. The line about service animals welcome was removed.

The owner’s son arrived, with a foot-long list of excuses.

“If he’s not going to say he made a mistake, that’s fine too, because I’m going to be the better person, you know, we both messed up, all right, we messed up more,” said Zaphir Pathan, the Subway owner’s son.

“How did he mess up by having a service dog and wanting to go into the store, I don’t understand that?” Wallace said.

“You’re completely twisting the situation, that’s funny,” Pathan said.

“If I go into that Subway with a service dog, will I be allowed in?” Wallace asked.

“You can go in right now because now we know,” he said.

Now, Guess what? Ahmed is still working and still in denial.

“You weren’t here,” Wallace said.

“No,” Ahmed said.

“So, you’re ok having him work for you when he lied?” Wallace asked.

“Who doesn’t lie when they don’t want their case thrown under the water?” Pathan said.

“OK, my goodness,” Wallace said.

“I was just looking for an apology. I was just looking for an apology that you’re wrong,” Hunter said. “Now, I’m afraid to go out. I’m having anxiety even to go to the corner store now.”
