Enraged that they can't get their mosques built fast enough and big enough in America, the litigation jihadists at CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) and their allies in the Obama Regime will try to prove that 'prejudice' rather than genuine zoning issues concerns are behind the growing number of mosque denials across the country.
It isn't prejudice against Muslims, it is justifiable hatred for Islam and the terrorist training centers that many mosques are fronts for.
The Hour (H/T Sharona) While Norwalk, CT's recent rejection of a proposed mosque on Fillow Street is not among them, the DOJ's investigations elsewhere are real. Of the 28 cases, 11 have resulted in full investigations and four remain open.
"Of the 11 investigations opened since 2000, two resulted in the filing of DOJ lawsuits that were resolved by consent decrees, three resulted in the local government voluntarily permitting the mosque, one led to a settlement of a privately filed lawsuit, four are currently pending, and in one case we determined that further action by the department was not warranted," said the official, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
The department is now reviewing a case in West Haven to determine if an investigation is warranted, the official said.
There is no evidence to suggest the department is investigating the recent decision by the Norwalk Zoning Commission to reject Al-Madany Islamic Center of Norwalk's plan for a mosque/multi-purpose hall at 127 Fillow St.
The commission voted 4-3 last Wednesday night to deny the special permit needed to construct the 27,000-square-foot structure in a residential zone.
Mayor Richard A. Moccia on Thursday said the decision was well-thought out and had nothing to do with religion. "It had to do with density, size and traffic," Moccia said. (And even if it doesn't, we will continue to make the case that it does to keep out the Muslim infiltrators)
