One would think that these people would have had the decency to respect the wishes of the long-time residents of Murfreesboro and built their monstrosity elsewhere. As in the case of the Ground Zero mosque, the muslims insist on making a vulgar display of in-your-face-manship and hide behind crooked lawyers. Islam is not so much a religion as it is an ideology...a hateful and amoral ideology. And they wonder why they are not wanted among decent and law-abiding America.

We are law abiding Americans too. We are here not unwanted, but so much needed by these people hungry for guidance. Soon you will find Americans flock to Islam - well, we have never forced them, but many have come to ask this and that, and in the end -'enter me into Islam'. Wasn't that nice.

'MYSTERIOUS MONEY AND MOTIVE BEHIND MONSTER MOSQUE IN MURFREESBORO

Why is it such a big deal that a Muslim community is simply trying to build a house of worship?

Let’s start with a little math. Murfreesboro, TN has just over 100,000 residents. According to estimates provided by the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, there are 200 to 300 Muslim families living in the area. When they announced their plans to build a 53,000 square foot mega mosque, a lot of questions came up. One subject of concern was why they needed such a huge compound for so few families. What is particularly disconcerting is that, according to their own documents (attached 2009 annual report) the ICM only has 45 active paying member families. Naturally this begs another question – who is paying for this massive compound?

And, what will it really cost to build something that looks like this, per square foot, at 53,000 square feet, when the project is completed? How many millions of dollars will these “45 active members” be coming up with – and where is all this money coming from?

Now the question of who is paying for this Islamic compound and why is it so big, begs another question:



Why is it that after 9/11, mosque construction in America has nearly doubled?

It’s not as if the population of Muslims in America suddenly spiked – not even close. Muslims make up less than 1 percent of the United States population. So is there any logical explanation for the rapid expansion of new mosque construction?

One need only look to the history of 1,400 years of Islamic conquest to understand that according to the Hijra, the Islamic doctrine of cultural invasion, Muslims are required to build mosques following a successful attack.'

Muslims worship Satan.
Muslims kill for the cause of Satan.
Mohammed was a prophet of Satan.
Muslims are all going to burn in the fire of hell.

There is a historical and traditional connection between Christianity and Islam. The two faiths share a common origin in the Middle East.[2] Muslims consider Christians as the People of the Book. From a Muslim standpoint, belief in the Injil (the original Gospel of Jesus) is an important part of Islamic theology, although Muslims view the current Gospels as corrupted. The bond extends even further with the Islamic Prophet Muhammad instructing Muslims to defend the Christian faith from aggressors in certain circumstances after treaties of peace have been signed, such as in the document called the Achtiname of Muhammad.

Furthermore, Islam and Christianity share at their core, the twin "golden" commandments of the paramount importance of loving God and loving one's neighbor, although the interpretations of these statements differ greatly between the two traditions, and, indeed, vary between all three Abrahamic religions.[3]

Yeah, I guess where the differences start to really shine is the part about suicide bombings, acid attacks, "honor" killings, cartoon riots, beheadings, stonings, fatwas, Olympic massacres, subway bombings, shooting up hotels in India, massacring Russian school children and flying airplanes full of innocent people into buildings full of innocent people.....other than that.....

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION NEWS, RELIGION IN PUBLIC LIFE NEWS
Federal judge grants Tenn. mosque’s petition to open
NASHVILLE, Tenn.— A federal judge ordered a Tennessee county yesterday to move ahead with opening a Muslim congregation’s newly built mosque after a two-year fight from opponents.
The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro sued Rutherford County earlier in the day and asked U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell for an emergency order to let worshippers into the building before the holy month of Ramadan starts at sundown today.
Federal prosecutors also filed a similar lawsuit.
The future of the mosque had been in question since May, when a local judge overturned the county’s approval of the mosque construction. This month he ordered the county not to issue an occupancy permit for the 12,000-square-foot building.
Campbell ordered the county to move ahead on approving the mosque for use.
.
Although members of the congregation had hoped to move into the building before Ramadan, the builder said today that they will have to wait a little longer. Construction supervisor David Salimi said a codes inspector visited the site this morning but that it will take about two more weeks of work to be ready.

Islam favors freedom, liberty, decency, and rights of worship. Jesus (alaihissalam) too was prophet of Islam. He called for worship of true one god, the god, al-lah. And to never ascribe anyone or anything as partner to the true one god. Not even himself, for he was merely a human messenger.

Mawar, the reality, the facts are posted here every day that prove your post a lie.

Islam is opposed to Freedom and Liberty and Muslims put that into practice in every community where they hold power.

Have you ever visited a mosque or an Islamic centre? I am sure they will welcome and treat you well. Doesn't matter if you are an old lady, they will let you in. Come in ramadan at sunset, you will get a meal served.

Journalists paint bad picture about Islam all the time and you are sucking to it. These people are amateur journalists. I am not. Now you should come to the nearest mosque while still in Ramadan; we don't have too many days left. Come at sunset, remember.
