Forty years ago, the thought of granite counter tops, marble floors and indoor basketball gyms at Houston mosques seemed unthinkable.

But after decades of growth, the Muslim community is expanding and building new facilities at an unprecedented pace, with features and amenities that rival five-star hotels, leaders say.

Multimillion-dollar plans for major mosque expansions and constructions are moving forward throughout the Houston area, coming on the heels of recently finished developments.

The Saudis built a huge, deluxe mosque in Seoul, Korea a few years before my first tour there. I guarantee you these mosques are being funded by the Saudis.

Read my tagline. The Saudi government is establishing colonies in the West.

When are we going to start demanding religious tolerance for other faiths in Saudi Arabia? There can be no cultural exchange when they shut out “diversity” in their own country.

That handful of muslims in Seoul could not possibly scrape enough money together to build a mosque. Of course our “friends” the Saudis are involved.

This is certainly not my grandfathers America.

It is no longer my fathers America and the way it’s going, it will soon no longer be my America.

The Saudi government is establishing colonies in the West.

They're playing the same game the NAACP did in the 20's and 30's -- surging their surplus population into Northern cities where political clout is available, leverage over the federal government.

Moslem countries have surplus population and the Saudis are using mosques as welcoming committees and rabat centers -- rallying points -- for their Moslem emigrants into the West.

It takes pressure off regimes in the extant umma (Moslem world) and transfers it to the West.

I’ve watched several be built over the years. And they’ve all got barbed wire around them and locked gates.

Our constitution will be what destroys us. UNLESS, we get a congress and a president with some guts and we declare islam to be in the same category as nazism and not a religion.

God, I hate to agree with Michael Moore. But the Bushes and the Saudis are way too close. And the one between the
Bushes was on their payroll, too. Of course, obama is even closer. We haven’t had a patriotic president since Reagan.

Bush is no longer president. To continue to go back to any president is simply weak minded Saul Alinsky dishonest debate tactics.

To allow Mosques to be built in the USA is akin to allowing any enemy to build weapons factories in our country.

This is a hate cult and thanks to the progressives (the enemy within) in both parties they are using our first amendment against us.

Most of the major religions of the world had their darker days and have become civilized. Mudslimes remain in the 7th century and are at war with ALL civilization.

There can be no peace if this hate cult is allowed first amendment protection.

Now you know why GW coined the phrase that “Islam is a religion of peace”.

Okay, for every mosque built here, a Christian Church goes up in Saudi. Sounds fair to me. Hey CAIR, you have a problem with that? . . That would stop it right there. . .

I was living in Houston around 1984 or 85, I remember they had a Mosque out on the outskirts of town, and it was firebombed.

These Moslems just don’t understand the effects when you start digging into a fire ant mound.

My point is we the people have sat by and watched this take place since 1988.

As you said, progressives in both parties. But we should not use the word “progressives” to define these people. The correct word is “traitors”. They all hate this country.

Maybe you could trap some hogs and release them on FM1960. Which runs right between Bush Intercontinental Airport and a nice mosque that is being refurbished. Literally right on the other side of the airport. Everytime we drive by, the hair on the back of my neck stands up. They could take down a plane from that distance with a sling shot. The planes are flying so low over that area that you can practically see the people inside. Am I joking? no.

These hogs are so destructive and multiplying so rapidly (12 to 18 in a litter is not unheard of) that I see a trap in their future. Taking them up there and releasing them, no, I don't think so. Unless you......... :D

Attention Mexico, China, and DC: Houston and Austin are yours for the taking. Just relocate their populations to your geography, and we'll pay you the value of the real estate.

Sincerely,
Texas

I tried to post this yesterday but my browser locked up...

The Saudis have been funding the expansion of wahhabism in the West since the seizure of Mecca in the 1970s.

The Saudis play both sides of the coin, they are perfectly willing to export radical islam but they want help from the West to keep it tempered down “at home in SA”.

Islam is a theocratic system of rule incompatible with our Constitution. Additionally a foreign power is funding its spread in this nation. Unconstitutionally.
