‘No more mosques!’ Overflow crowd cheers as town’s planning commission rejects huge project

A Michigan city’s planning commission turned down a request to build a mosque last week.

The decision was made on the eve of the 14th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on U.S. soil by Islamic extremists.

An overflow crowd of hundreds chanted “No more mosques!” and “God bless America” outside, after the Sterling Heights City Hall was filled to its 240-seat capacity, according to Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ Channel 7 News.

At issue was the proposed mosque’s size — 20,500 square feet — to be built within a residential area.
