Yep...Religion of Pieces.

He was elected mayor in 2009. Snonhomish County is quite liberal, so I guess they were trying to show 'inclusivelness' when they elected him. The dude actually owns a bar up in Granite Falls.

Doesn't that alone violate HIS religion??

The smug Leftists who reside in Seattle are largely responsible for the ungodly politicians in WA. They’re very sassy for people living on a potentially lethal volcano.

Sounds like they interfered with his allah-given “right” to uphold his family honor - you know - stonings and beheadings and such.

Granite Falls is the last place I would have expected Muzzies to show up much less be the mayor of. The city of Everett does have at least one mosque so maybe its not that unthinkable.

Kinda reminds me of when Muzzie first came to the US they decided to settle in North Dakota of all places and built the first mosque there. They show up in the most unexpected places.

He was arrested for yelling at a family member? No physical contact, just yelling?

Wow.

If you had read the whole article you'd know that he yelled "you will die,infidel whore" to his 10 year old daughter and then chanted "allah akbar".

The settling of the Muslim community in North Dakota isn’t that widely known.

Curious how you came to learn of it. Don’t mean to pry.

Several years ago Cedar Rapids, IA had some flooding. In the news they mentioned that one of the first mosques in America was also flooded. I did some checking and found this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Mosque_of_America

The Mother Mosque of America, once known as The Rose of Fraternity Lodge and also known as Moslem Temple, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, United States, is the longest standing mosque in North America. Built in 1934, it is the second oldest after the 1929 mosque built in tiny Ross, North Dakota, however that mosque was torn down in the 1970s and later rebuilt in 2005, leaving the Mother Mosque as the oldest standing. It is also slightly younger than the Al-Rashid Mosque in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Most people don’t know it but there is a 6,000 seat mosque that was built in Washington, DC back in 1957 called the Islamic Center of Washington.

Muslims have been immigrating to America since 1895.

I’d like to know who at that time encouraged them to start immigrating here.

I don’t know what prompted the immigration. The people I knew (second and third generations) were of Lebanese descent and, as I have indicated to you in a freepmail, were very Americanized and very successful.

And, as it happens, they were very conservative politically...as in Reagan conservatives, no kidding. They married locally pretty quickly and the father of the kids I knew was a local farmer. I was confirmed in the Lutheran church with one of the daughters, and competed alongside the oldest son in our five-time state champion shooting team.

I believe he went on to serve in the U.S. military (though I can’t remember the branch) and he is now a physician in Alaska where he moved because of the great hunting.

Thanks much for your info and time.

Take a look at the Civic Center in Helena MT. Been there for many years, since I was in high school in the late fifties. All the moose limbs need to do is move in.
