Muslim Majority City Council Begins Work in Detroit Suburb

Quote:
For more than a century, the Detroit suburb of Hamtramck, Michigan was home to many Polish Catholic immigrants and their descendants. The town prospered when the auto industry flourished, but its fortunes, and ethnic makeup, dramatically changed in over the past several decades. As VOA’s Kane Farabaugh reports from Hamtramck, the town made international headlines when it elected a majority of Muslim Americans to the City Council in November.

Interesting place as a city within a city...



And yet no Shariah law

This entire suburb should be exiled to ISIS Syria.

Tempers flare over loud Islamic prayers in 'Muslimville, USA'

Residents of Hamtramck, Michigan – the area dubbed “Muslimville, USA,” by one newspaper after its population shifted from 90 percent Polish to mostly Muslim – complained at their most recent city council meeting the community center’s blasted calls to prayer were simply too loud.

Four of the six council members are Muslim, as WND reported.

“Just turn it down a little bit,” said one resident, Jeanette Powell, telling the Hamtramck Review the prayer calls start at 6 a.m. and the sound level was “overbearing.”

Another resident said Ideal Islamic Center officials “lied” when they assured nearby residents, including those at the Hamtramck Senior Plaza apartments, the facility would not be used as a mosque.

“We were lied to,” said Carol Marsh, telling the local newspaper the calls to prayer belong in a mosque, not a community center. “We were told it would never be turned into a mosque.”

Sakrul Islam, with the center, said Marsh was mistaken, that an Islamic center “covers everything,” and that if she continued to make such claims he would file a defamation lawsuit, the newspaper said. He also accused Robert Zwolak, a city council member who lives in the senior apartment complex, of fueling complaints because “he’s against Muslims,” he said, the Hamtramck Review reported.

This isn’t the first time the Muslim community’s faced such complaints. In 2015, in a story that opened with “Welcome to Muslimville, USA,” the New York Daily News cited several residents as complaining about the early morning Muslim calls to prayer.

“You try reading a book in your backyard while your dog is barking to that,” said resident Susan Dunn, during the November 2015 interview with the New York Daily News.

Hamtramck became the first city in the nation to elect a Muslim majority to its six-seat council, underscoring the shift in demographics of the city from Polish Catholic dominance. The city’s demographics now break down to about 24 percent Arab, 19 percent black, 15 percent Bangladeshi; 12 percent Polish; and six percent Yugoslavian, USA Today reported, citing Census Bureau statistics.

And according to at least one analyst of Muslim affairs, the shift in Hamtramck is likely to replicate at communities around the nation.

“Yes, much, much more of this is coming with Obama’s reckless refugee resettlement policies,” said Pamela Geller, the president of American Freedom Defense Initiative and the editor and publisher of AtlasShrugs.com, in an email to WND. “I have been sounding the alarm on this for years.”

For those who revere the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom, Hamtramck should serve as a warning, she continued.

“I don’t think there is a direct or specific jihad terror threat coming from Hamtramck any more than from any other Muslim community. Anywhere that the Quran is read and Muhammad revered, a Muslim might decide to wage jihad,” Geller said. “[But] the main problem with Hamtramck is that it manifests Islam’s inherent authoritarianism and contempt for those of other religions.”

She gave an example, writing in her email: “When they got the noise ordinance amended to allow for the call to prayer, one local imam said just before the city council voted, that it didn’t matter how they voted, they were going to blast the call to prayer over loudspeakers anyway. Now they have a majority in that city council and the first thing one of the Muslim leaders said after they won that majority was that ‘we showed the Polish’ – adopting a confrontational and hostile attitude right out of the box.”

And her final thoughts?

“It is very hard with Obama and his [Department of Justice] on the side of the Muslims” to stop a Hamtramck from coming to a community near you, she said. “But Americans must begin organizing and fighting back, or we will lose our freedoms. The First Amendment is only as strong as its defenders are.”

Re: Muslim Majority City Council Begins Work in Detroit Suburb

That call to prayer malarkey would drive me insane...literally. It's utterly selfish to impose that on everyone. The last time I looked people could afford alarm clocks, those fucking Muslims worshipers should use them instead of aggravating everyone else with their religious lifestyle.

Re: Muslim Majority City Council Begins Work in Detroit Suburb

I actually agree with you Top Gear. Any Islamic center I've been in or around in America plays the call to prayer, but they do it inside. I don't see much of a point in broadcasting it outside. Especially in today's climate, annoying people isn't going to make things any better. A retirement home is not likely to be filled with individuals who are familiar with or want to hear something of that nature, and being a good neighbor goes a long way. Something the Imam might want to consider.

I can hear church bells ringing from down the street, but it doesn't offend me. Lets me know when the new hour hits, and they do sound nice.

I'm not sure why this is making the news now, though. I think the ordinance that "allowed" the loudspeaker was approved in 2004, even though I question the legitimacy of an elected body regulating religious affairs. Approving one, unless it is treated equally with all others, seems beyond the scope of government (at the federal level anyway, I'm not familiar with how that works at a local level).

This looks like one of the original sources (without the input of "analyst" Pamella Geller):

Re: Muslim Majority City Council Begins Work in Detroit Suburb

Love how the Islamic whatever threatens to sue the seniors living across the street for complaining.

I'd shoot those speakers out if they woke my kids up at 6am.

Re: Muslim Majority City Council Begins Work in Detroit Suburb

The moo slum DEATH Cult is a FAKE 'religion'.

It is, in reality, simply a Political Ideology with the single aim of Complete World Domination and the Total Enslavement of ALL of Mankind.

It is a Snackbar DEATH Cult of CONQUEST.


You see it at work here.

Insinuating it's way into the fabric of the US...like the Global CANCER that it is.

Imposing it's Will on the Conquered Infidels.


Expel ALL moo slum residents to Syria as 'migrants' wishing to live under Sharia.


Flatten the entire town.

Turn it into a hog farm.
