The Irving City Council, on March 19, passed a resolution of support for the proposed legislation, HB 562, Breitbart Texas’ Merrill Hope reported. The council’s resolution passed by...

    After the devastating attacks in Paris, some Muslims have been threatened and even attacked. But one little boy didn’t want to just stand by after a mosque in his hometown was desecrated. The Islamic Center of Pflugerville, a mosque in a strip mall in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, was vandalized on Monday. On the way to morning prayers, community members of the mosque found feces smeared on the sidewalk and torn pages of the Quran, the Islamic holy book, scattered outside the center. When her 7-year-old-son, Jack, heard about what happened to the local mosque, he wanted to help...

    A presentation on plans for a new mosque near Fredericksburg, VA ended with a volley of racist rants made by members of the public. According to WUSA 9, speaker Samer Shalaby was presenting plans for a new mosque the local Muslim community intended to build on property it already owned. The current Islamic Center is too small, as the community has grown steadily in recent years. That’s when two men in attendance at the public meeting shouted down Shalaby with claims that all Muslims were “evil” and “terrorists.” The speaker said he didn’t expect such hostility.

Trump's comments have been condemned by the The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which said that they are "un-American" and fly against freedom of religion. Trump told Fox Business' Stuart Varney in a Wednesday segment on Wednesday that is willing to follow the example set by other countries, such as the U.K., who have closed down certain terror-linked mosques and revoked passports in order to combat the threat of Islamic terrorism.

A Chicago chapter of the Council in American-Islamic Relations -- CAIR -- asked Friday for it to be investigated as a hate crime. Moline Police Detective Scott Williams, public information officer, said police and mosque officials "have no reason to believe it's a hate crime, and believe damage was done by a rock, not a bullet, pellet, or other type of projectile. A police report lists it as "criminal damage to property."

    HOUSTON, Texas Left-of-center media appears to quickly be jumping to conclusions about who may have started the fire at the Quba Islamic Institute. A member of the Islamic center told reporters that fire investigators told him an accelerant was found in the fire. Twitchy now leads with the following headline: CNN reports Islamic center fire intentional; Tea party members are out here killing innocent people. The CNN report comes from CNNs Erin Burnett who reported that the fire at the Islamic center in Houston is a frightening and troubling incident, especially in light of the shooting in North Carolina...

  • Solving the "Call to Prayer" noise pollution problem around mosques. ~ Vanity

    I was thinking about the Duke case of them wanting to "broadcast" out their screeching bellowing "call to prayer" that they feel has to pollute the air every 5 times a day. Then i thought of this. Apparently it is NOT "haram" or forbidden to use technology to send out their screeches, otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to use loudspeakers and pre-recorded mooselimb bellowing. So if Tech is not an issue, why not use tech to solve the problem? Low power and LEGAL FM transmitters can be bought that can send out a signal over about a mile radius and...
