Muslim Cemetery Plans Stir Outrage In Small Texas Town

A normally quiet town of 3,000 in Texas has been up in arms in recent weeks over plans to bring an Islamic cemetery within their city limits. More than 100 residents packed a Farmersville City Council meeting Tuesday night to express their concern.

“It is my duty and my right to warn when there is a danger,” one resident said, according to the website of WFAA-TV, an ABC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth. Another resident warned that the cemetery would “kill Farmersville.”

The cemetery has been proposed by five Islamic centers in Collin County, the county within which Farmersville is located. Khalid Abdur-Rashid, a resident scholar at an Islamic association, said the anger is rooted in misinformation over plans for the land.

    The Toronto media is on the job about the latest attack from the religion of peace. Oh wait, CP News has heart warming story and videos of celebrations for the end of ramadan ding dong in Toronto. And on the Toronto Star website apparently nothing happened in the States. We should import thousands more muslims. Oh wait we are.

    I can believe this, although not for the reason Khalid wishes. I wonder what kind of lies he and his other intolerant pisslamist have been telling.

    Oh well, at least they’re dead. Not like they can harm anyone :/ Better than an Islamic so-called-culutural centre.

      “Prayer Space” will be incorporated and oddly enough will turn out to be ideal for use as a temporary madrassa, a temporary mosque, and temporary assembly room for visiting preachers and activists.
