Funny how that is, the most ignorant of the ignorant on Islam, are the ones who have the audacity to lecture to those who have justified claims for not wanting a mosque in their district. They’re just being ‘fearful’ and ’emotional’. Anyone with a good head sense on Islam will reject the building of a mosque which will eventually be used as a staging ground for an eventual takeover of the area. It’s called Islam 101. KGS
NOTE: Oh and they’ll say that everyone’s invited to use it as a meeting place. Lets call in the Hari Krishnas to chant in the court yard. KGS
Commission Approves Proposed Mosque
Anniston Road Residents Upset With City Planning Commission’s Decision
The city planning commission voted to allow a property owner to build a mosque at this location on Anniston Road.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Fear and emotion versus cold hard facts.
That’s how one person painted the sides of a dispute about building a mosque on Anniston Road on Jacksonville’s Southside.
But after all the talk at a meeting downtown Thursday to discuss the proposed mosque halfway between Atlantic and Beach boulevards, the city planning commission voted in favor of allowing a property owner to build a place of worship at the location.
People who live in the area said the building should not be allowed primarily because of traffic concerns.
A few dozen people attended Thursday’s meeting and got to speak if they wanted to. They also heard the agent for the property owner make a case saying traffic effects from a new 3,500-square-foot mosque would not be significant.
Still, homeowners on Anniston Road said it is not what they want in their community.
“We’ve seen people killed there,” resident Eddie Gibbs said. “As a matter of fact, the very property that they just approved, there’s been multiple cars run into those trees. The only reason they didn’t go onto the property is because the trees stopped them.”
“I had no intentions of saying anything today, but I thought, ‘You know, wait a minute. I need to make a stand. I’ve lived there all my life,'” said resident Linda Hall, who has lived in the neighborhood for 56 years. “We don’t want it. We want a residential community with neighbors that help one another.”
Some of the residents who live in the neighborhood said they were heartbroken by the commission’s decision.
NOTE: The dhimmi ignorant on Islam officials haven’t a clue as to what they’re signing off on, and couldn’t care less about the feelings of the majority of the people who live in the area.
