(11/29/06 - KTRK/KATY, TX) - There's an awful lot of exciting news when you round the corner on Baker Road. One of two big yellow signs announces a new neighbor is coming soon.
K.I.A., that's the Katy Islamic Association, plan to build a mosque here.
"It's not an appropriate place to have a mosque or church," said resident Barbara Simpson.
It isn't going over real well.
"As a house of worship, they shouldn't be disturbing the peace and tranquility of 15 homes," said resident John Wetmore.
Neighbors tell us they're concerned about traffic and drainage and a little fear of the unknown.
Some of the homeowners even offered to buy the land back for more than a million dollars.
The K.I.A. doesn't seem very interested in the offers.
"We're not going anywhere," said Katy Islamic Association member Alvi Muzfar.
So it seems the community at the end of Baker Road has a pretty good fight.
But this fight has gone much farther than many between two neighbors. You see in these fights, sometimes neighbors throw mud at one another, in this instance they're wallowing in it.
Craig Baker owns pigs.
He's the guy behind the second big yellow sign on Baker Road. That's the one announcing Friday night pig races.
"What does it matter, I can do whatever I want with my land right," asked landowner Craig Baker.
But aren't pigs on the property line racing on a Friday night a little offensive to a Muslim neighbor?
"The meat of a pig is prohibited in the religion of Islam," said Katy Islamic Association member Youssof Allam. "It's looked upon as a dirty creature."
Yeah there's that and also that Friday night is a Muslim holy day.
"That is definitely a slap in the face," said Allam..
Now before you go thinking Craig Baker is unfair, or full of hate, or somehow racist, hear him out.
Baker has long roots here, his family named the road and when the new neighbors moved in, he tells us, they asked him to move out.
"Basically that I should package up my family and my business and find a place elsewhere," said Baker. "That's ridiculous, they just bought the place one week prior and he's telling me I should think about leaving." That new owners deny they ever said anything like that, but Baker isn't budging.
Baker admits the pigs are a message he is not leaving.
The 11-acre property is sandwiched between a pricey subdivision and Craig Baker's business.
K.I.A. eventually plans to build a mosque, a gym and a school there. There's no date for the groundbreaking ceremonies, or the first pig race.
I LOVE IT... too bad he'll lose.
They should have online betting and web cams for the pig races.
FYI, Friday night is only holy to Jewish people, it's Thursday night that's holy to Moslems. Thursday night/Friday daytime.
Great idea.Im sure city ordinances will prohibit the rest of us from running pig races on any night.
Add a few pole dancers, and plenty of beer;)
Put me down for a $10 Arnold Ziffel-Porky Pig exacta in the 5th race.
Let's Go To The Races! Pinggggggggggggg
I'm a Pole dancer and I might be at those races!
Well, I'm Polish and I dance....
Every day offer ham sandwiches to those entering the mosque.
WTG! Does anyone know if pigs can be trained to be an infidel "guard dog" of sorts?
No, the weekly Muslim "holy" day starts Thursday at dusk and ends Friday at dusk. ....so it's Thursday night, not Friday night.
Doggone it. fotki must be down...I WAS going to post my pic of the smiling pig here...
I *do* love Texas.......pigs and all.
ROFLMAFO! great tag line!
(oh, boys - look what I have for you heah!)
Gen Robert E Lean is leading and Gen U.S. Grunt is closing in
The feeling's mutual, Death-Worshipping Moon Cult Boy.
(Intereting, there are always the 'denials'. . .notice in the flying Imams debaucle. . .they deny everything; save that they were 'just behaving like good passengeres. . .muslim passengers. . .muslim passensgers, praying. . .nothing more.
NO. ..seatbelt extenders, requested. . .placed on floor; no changing of seats. . .no 'self'moving' to First Class. . .No rude or threatenieng conversation. . .just PRAYERS. . .quietly offered.
That said. . .upping the ante here. . .
Go PIGS Go. . .Go PIGS, GOOOOOO!
(Would also offer that these mosques are not just 'places of worship' but politcal bases as well. . .They should be viewed as such and held accountable for their political activity. . .)
If the 'races' don't work. . .then maybe the weekly Friday night pig roast/pig party might . . .nothing better than the smell of pork roasting/and or cooking on the barbeque. .
if by chance a pig were to die, bury it at the proposed site, take a digital picture, and spread like wildfire.
"If I'm good enough to play Blanket Bingo with Allah himself," the better-looking-than-the-average-Muslim woman harrumphed, "then the rest of those bearded, ululating evolutionary dead ends of the desert can just line right up, single file, and smooch my big, pink bristly backside!"
What is happening with the Moslem that shot up the women at the Jewish organization in Seattle and killed the one lady? I can't find out anything at all about it.
Is it being treated as a hate crime?
lolol... I'll take ham on rye and pig in a poke for $20 in the 4th
Maybe that roast pork fragrance could be made into a spray. Yummm...
Baker should set up a security camera and aim it at their property.
Imagine the looks on their faces when the masks are pulled off their dirtbag children's heads after the race is over.
I can dream.
Asking a man who has lived on that land all his life to leave goes just too far.
. . .lol. . .might even make 'grass grow'; in which case. . .
This group is already preparing it's lawsuits. . .hey. . .they might even claim. . .'eminent domain'.
When arrogance knows no bounds. . .be prepared for anything.
OTOH. ..they really do not like pigs. . .
They will build there mosque, in ten years from now the whole place will be crawling with muzzies. People will start to move out, and they will move in. I see no legal way to stop the take over of any one area.
They have always planed on the fact normal people with kids do not want be near a mosque and will move away. Note the school part for the 6 to 8 children each muzzie will have.
They don't like dogs either. Kennels!
Pig roast smell is too good of a treatment for muslim scumbags...
There was a dispute several years ago in rural Florida between pig farm owner and closeby neighboor who did not like the smell, well the farm owner stood for his rights and installed huge industrial fans blowing pig farm perfumed air toward the neighbours property to teach him a lesson. As the area was zoned agricultural the pig owner prevailed.
Install the fans and blow pig farm scent in ragheads direction!
I like the people in your area.
Good questions one and all. Here's another one, why are we allowing more Islamic fanatics into the US at a time when we are at war with radical Islam? And even if these aren't recently arrived radicals, why should they be allowed to destroy the peace and tranquility of an established American residential neighborhood with their foreign Satanic religion's house of demon worship?
In many American towns and cities newly organized Christian churches are zoned out of residential neighborhoods because of the traffic and noise that they would generate. Are Muslims above the law or are they more deserving of special exemptions from the zoning laws than Christians for some unknown reason?
If these intrusive Islamics are allowed to desecrate this slice of downhome America with a tower for their mullah to intone his 5 daily calls to prayer, the locals should see to it that some other equally obnoxious source of irritating noise pollution has free access to the ears of the unwanted Muslim faithful while they try to listen to their pagan religion's cleric drone on and on with blasphemous prayers to Allah, also known in the JudeoChristian bible as Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer, and the Father of Lies.
Do I sound biased against Muslims? If so it's only because I can't abide seeing our once Christian nation being desecrated by foreign false religious cults such as the abomination created by a moon-god worshiping pedophile who met with demonic entities in a desert cave and then created a murderous religious cult according to the instructions he was given by those demons. I can be reasonably tolerant of other peaceful religious belief systems, but not of a murderous demonic death cult that has murdered and enslaved untold millions of victims over the course of the past 14 centuries, and is now itching to do the same to millions of Americans.
I say do anything and everything to annoy them. Maybe the smell of roast pig will convert them. I feel bad for this guy as I think whoever posted he could get hurt was right. I wouldn't want to see that. I am wondering how they were able to sneak into an area that plainly doesn't want them. Where I live they have to send letters to nearby neighbors even if you want to build an addition on your house let alone build something like a mosque. If the neighbors don't want the Muslims there they should go elsewhere. I am sick of kissing their butts. We get accused of hate crimes but they never seem to.

lol. . .but really, this is pathetic. I understand there are nice 'Muslims'. . .I just do not want to see mosques in the 'neighborhood; nor the 'rest of their story'. Have some big homes. . .maybe belong to the 'Imams' (?) being built in a very established, conservative neighborhood. These homes feel like a 'black eye' delivered everytime I pass them. They are so out of architectural 'synch'. . .time/place and for sure, architecture. . .they look like mosques themselves.
I think. . .'fine'. .for YOUR country.
Also know, we have not seen anything yet. . .compared to what is coming.
Those that can see are tortured by what may be coming down the pike.
