After the shootings in Orlando, Florida residents in New Jersey placed signs that said, “no mas no mosque” and “if the mosque comes the mayor go’s” to protest against a Muslim mosque under construction.
The Muslim community was outraged and demanded the signs be taken down. Reportedly, they knocked on doors and made Islamic threats as well. The media has called these signs islamaphobic.
The town has come together to express their disapproval of the mosque. they argue that it is being built behind a housing complex and would pose a threat and inconvenience to citizens. They have done so in a legal and peaceful manner. Unfortunately, the Muslim community hasn’t responded in the same manner.
Patricia Basille, a citizen of the town, said as soon as she put up her signs she was targeted. She also says one Muslim man knocked on her door demanding she take down the signs and she refused.
“It is shocking to hear some of the people, but that’s normal, the backlash, the international climate with what’s going on in the media and what you are hearing with all of those things, so I understand their concern.”
A Republican leader and former state assembly candidate has joined the cause. Michael Alonso is against the mosque as well and he has gone public with that sentiment.
He said the following:
“In light of the Orlando terrorist attack recently committed in the name of Islam, a mosque in Bayonne would be unsafe and unwise. It’s definitely not the right time. With everything that’s happening recently and all over the world, we have ISIS, we have Christians being beheaded, we have the LGBT community being targeted. This is just not the right time. It’s not the right place. They meet right here. They’re growing rapidly. They fill up the whole basement. The population is exploding. The development on the east side is getting out of control. There’s no way that this project would fit down there. And, at the same time, residents don’t feel safe.”
This is another case of the bias of the liberal media. ABC jumps at the opportunity to report on this, but they fail to bring attention to the five-year-old girl raped and tortured by Muslim refugees this past month.
For those who call Islam a peaceful religion, they should really look beyond what the media feeds them.
All the appeasing the Obama administration has done to the Muslim community is make them feel entitled to social benefits and equal protection under the law to a country they aren’t legally citizens of.
