On May 30, a Tennessee judge struck a blow for freedom, ruling that construction of a mega-mosque in rural Murfreesboro, Tenn., had to stop. Yet despite this court ruling, the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is defying the order and working furiously to build the mega-mosque. Bomb threats have even been made to the courthouse of Chancellor Robert Corlew, who issued the ruling. Nonetheless, warriors for freedom are fighting on and have filed an injunction to stop construction.
These Islamic supremacists behind the Murfreesboro mosque (a mosque board member has posted pro-Hamas material to his Facebook page) are defying American law as they continue to build at a more furious pace, once again demonstrating their contempt for American jurisprudence and adherence to the Shariah. This is an Islamic pattern. We saw this same contempt for American law when Islamic supremacists behind the Muslim Brotherhood rabat in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, violated court orders to halt construction of their own mega-mosque on quiet, residential Voorhies Street.
And just as in Brooklyn, Murfreesboro’s dhimmi city officials refuse to enforce the law. In Murfreesboro, David Jones, director of building codes enforcement, has continued to state “no comment,” but has refused to issue a stop-work order. Is someone greasing his dirty palm?
Opponents of the mosque in Rutherford County have filed for an injunction seeking to stop construction. They state that they have “grown weary with the local government’s derelict response to the chancellor’s order. … [I]t’s inconceivable that the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro continues to ignore the chancellor’s order. Although they have proclaimed to be law-abiding citizens, their assertion is hollow. Ignoring the laws of Tennessee is no longer acceptable from the County government or the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.”
Even worse, the day after the judge’s ruling, the Rutherford County judicial building was evacuated due to a bomb threat. A search of the building was conducted while officials blocked off the street and the area surrounding the building.
Was the bomb threat related to the ruling? Perhaps – but we will probably never know, because local “journalists” aren’t making any effort to find out. They clearly don’t think it’s news.
Who decides what’s news and what’s not? If a bomb threat had been made to the Murfreesboro mosque, the American people would have been beaten to a pulp with it. Who decides which bomb threat is newsworthy?
You won’t hear anything about the bomb threat, but Islamic apologists and their left-wing tools were rabid over the judge’s ruling. The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the Justice Department to step in and order the mosque to be built. Hamas-tied CAIR staff attorney Gadeir Abbas said: “The judge’s ruling is apparently based on a fictitious heightened standard for public notice when Muslims are involved.” It’s fictitious to Hamas-CAIR, as their law is the Shariah. American jurisprudence is “fictitious” to Islamic supremacists.
The left-wing media were just as bad. They wield talk of tolerance and multiculturalism like clubs to suppress free speech. (Show me one Islamic country that is tolerant of anyone or anything.) They ignore the legitimate concerns of the community while crying racism (Islamic supremacism is not a race). The Huffington Post went so far as to run the judge’s name in their headline. When have you seen that before? Talk about putting a target on someone’s back. The Huff Po knows what they are doing when they do that. Real journalists would be investigating the mosque leaders’ ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. According to the most recent and comprehensive study, the empirical evidence showed an overwhelming number of American mosques teach, advance, promote violent jihad as dictated by Islamic teaching. Where is the HuffPo on that?
The people of Murfreesboro continue their fight despite the relentless smear campaign by the enemedia, Islamic supremacists and Islamic apologists. Well done. Their initial approach to the battle was badly flawed, but they have regained their footing.
Their opposition to this monster rabat should be on size and preservation of proportion and architectural integrity of the neighborhood. No exceptions, no accommodation, no changing the rules for a “special class.” No special rights for special classes.
These fights are critical and winnable. The Muslim Brotherhood mosque was stopped in Staten Island. The strategy to fighting the mosqueing of the neighborhood is detailed and outlined in my new book, “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” I recommend, in my book, that a legal center be established for this very specific purpose – to represent neighborhoods in fighting the planning applications and request for zoning changes for Muslim Brotherhood mosques. We will need legal centers established to fight for free speech vs. the enforcement of Islamic blasphemy laws masked as Orwellian hate-speech laws.
The good people of Murfreesboro have been the target of a vicious smear and defamation disinformation campaign. May they continue with their fight. The silent majority is behind them.
