    The City Council of Kennesaw, a community of 30,000 residents 30 miles northwest of Atlanta, voted unanimously to allow the prayer center, city clerk Pam Davis said. On Dec. 1, the council voted 4-1 to deny an application for the mosque, saying that zoning regulations did not allow a place of worship in that particular shopping center. An attorney for Muslim residents of Kennesaw called that decision an attack on his clients' rights to freedom of religion under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and said he had recommended they file a lawsuit. “I think it was a wise...

    Today on the main site, I have an article up about President Obama's silence concerning Colleen Hufford, the woman beheaded by Muslim convert Alton Nolen on September 25th. Well, it seems that President Obama has seen to it that a letter of his was read aloud to the mosque that Nolen attended. Obama praises the mosque for its work following the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma last year...........

    A fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested after a female coworker reported that he threatened to behead her, the Oklahoman said. Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is behind bars on a terrorism complaint, the Oklahoman reported, adding that his bail is set at $1 million. Muriithi — a native of Kenya who reportedly identified himself as a Muslim — was working with the victim for the first time Sept. 19 at the Bellevue Nursing Home when he made the threats, the arrest warrant affidavit said. Muriithi told her that he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the police...

    Was Muslim convert Alton Nolen, who allegedly beheaded co-worker Colleen Hufford and stabbed another woman in Oklahoma on Sept. 25, inspired by ISIS, the Islamist group that rules large parts of Syria and Iraq? (ISIS is also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIL, Islamic State, and Da`esh.) Law enforcement and the media have, as usual, distanced the attack from Islam and terrorism, implying the alleged crime is an example of “workplace violence” due to Nolen’s recent firing from Vaughan Foods. But co-workers report Nolen had a history of attempting to convert them to the Muslim faith....

    Today was the annual Muslim day parade, where Muslims take over Madison Avenue and convert it to an outdoor mosque. It is always scheduled near the anniversary day of September 11 — takbir! These marches are always controversial. The theme of the parade was advertised as Islam and America’s shared common values. But it was anything but. It was a political parade in support of terrorists in Egypt and Gaza. There was a lot of anti-Jewish propaganda — the flags of annihilation coupled with outrageous pro-terror Muslim Brotherhood propaganda. Before the police confiscated the guns, the Muslim were posing and...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — One of the oldest Catholic churches in St. Paul had to close down because of a dwindling congregation, but it's been given new life as an Islamic community center. The Church of St. John parish, built in 1886, closed in 2013. It reopened Friday as the Darul-Uloom Islamic Center, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported (http://bit.ly/1z0o5In ). "There are a lot of East Africans in the area, and we want to give them a place to worship, a place to be educated, a community space," center spokesman Feisal M. Elmi said. The former church held...

    Brandeis sides with a spawn of Hamas over a champion of women’s rights. Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that...

    I don’t really understand how living in an Islamic center that has collapsing ceilings and raw sewage is a part of the Islamic religion. Even the most far out Hadiths and Fatwas (and there are some really far out ones) don’t cover this.But political correctness usually trumps the law when it comes to mosques. Masjid Noor has “serious structural integrity problems and potentially dangerous conditions” that were revealed during a late-December inspection by fire officials, said city prosecutor Trisha Aljoe.“Floors and ceilings are collapsing in there, and extensive work is being done that needs a structural engineer.”Aljoe added that raw...

Designating an entire mosque as a terrorism enterprise means that anyone who attends prayer services there is a potential subject of an investigation and fair game for surveillance.

    Pork: The other white meat. Staten Island, NY (silive.com) -- It's being investigated as a hate crime -- someone scattered pieces of bacon over the New Dorp Beach field where the borough's Muslim community celebrated the end of Ramadan Sunday morning. But that act of desecration failed to ruin what organizers described as a successful celebration -- about 1,500 worshipers gathered at the John D'Amato Field at New Dorp Lane and Cedar Grove Avenue, unaware of the early morning police investigation that preceded the ceremony. "Everything went smoothly," said Dr. Mohamed Sadeia, president of the Muslim American Society on Staten...

    If it were anyone other than a Muslim supremacist Jew-hater, people would be going to jail. Hamas-CAIR would be demanding jail time under hate crime laws if it had been a Muslim in the pool. I expect his defense will be that Islamic Jew-hatred is in the quran. Obama say "respect it!"

    A Democratic Party caucus chairman who has speculated about Jewish involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has launched a new political action committee dedicated to supporting “anti-Zionist” Muslim candidates who believe “the ‘war on terror’ is a hoax and that the official story of 9/11 is not true,” according to the group’s website. MD Rabbi Alam is an Obama campaign ally and Missouri-based Democratic activist who came under fire in July after he told the Free Beacon that “not a single Jew” was killed during the 9/11 attacks. (Alam is not a rabbi.) A veteran Democrat, Alam lost a...

    A group of Muslim Americans gathered outside NYPD headquarters this morning to support the Police Department's surveillance of Muslims. Led by Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, the ralliers spoke out in favor of the NYPD’s counterterrorism efforts....Jasser said the statistics speak for themselves. “If you look at arrests for terrorism, of the last 200 arrests, 80 percent have been from Muslims,” Jasser said. “So, it’s rather denial not to recognize that we have a responsibility to root out the radicalization.”

    MERIDEN - A new mosque is a welcome addition to the mix of religious institutions on East Main Street and represents the city's history of religious tolerance, said the Rev. James Olson, pastor of Center Congregational Church. "I think it's great there are Muslims in the community," Olson said Wednesday. "Part of Meriden's heritage has always been religious diversity. I think it's just a reflection of what Meriden is." The Islamic Association of Southern Connecticut Inc. received Zoning Board of Appeals approval Tuesday to occupy a former funeral home at 189 E. Main St. as a place of worship.
