The Mosque Next Door

It's Monday and I'm a bit bored, working out of the house, waiting for the telephone to ring. No, I'm not doing out-call prostitution - primarily because women never pay (I'm cheap but I'm not free) --sigh-- I'm just not pretty enough, even though movie stars routinely steal 'my look'.

Blogging will have to do in the absence of something interesting on the Military Channel.

Some time ago, I blogged about an interaction that I had with the Muslim Next Door. This is sort of a to-be-continued.

Time to document the Mosque Next Door - actually about 250 meters west of my 'mansion'.


First, one must select an appropriate surveillance vehicle. 
I select the Zombie Apocalypse vehicle. (above, in zombie 
hunting mode - below, in my neighborhood, near the 
Mosque Next Door)


Armed? Yes, with Jhawg ammo (bullet tips infused with pork).

Note that the Mosque Next Door was sited in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I understand the concept of a neighborhood church and while it started out that way, it's turned into a much larger project.


(above) Photo of the Mosque Next Door from curbside. You can't tell from this photo but there are at most thirty parking spaces to service the new, expanded mosque. Essentially the new cathedral-style mosque has been constructed atop what were previously designated parking spaces for the faithful. There is a city ordnance requiring churches to have adequate parking for their flocks. I researched the matter and found that it was waived for the Muslims because to deny them their larger building would have been "Islamophobic"...


This picture shows the old mosque, beige in color with brown trim (right) and the new Mosque, covered with black tar paper, under construction (left). One is a modest neighborhood structure, the other is not. I leave it to the reader to draw conclusions. 


Photo taken from a city park across the street from the Mosque Next Door. Since Saturday is both the Islamic holy day and the day when kids play organized sports at the park, the Mosque people battle the soccer moms for parking.


Homes behind the Mosque Next Door are for sale. The construction of the larger, more obnoxious mosque have caused property values to decrease and non-Muslims end up peddling their homes willing Muslims. There goes the neighborhood. (yes, it's winter in Southern California - almost everything is green)


This home, immediately adjacent to the Mosque Next Door recently sold to the local Imam once property values plummeted. 

I'm not Islamophobic because I don't fear Islam or Muslim people. However, this is just a bit annoying. Or do  you think that I'm being intolerant?

  1. If you are not Muslim and you do not willingly accept dhimmi status, then you are Islamophobic.

    1. I guess if you put it that way, I am. Carrying a weapon with Jhawg ammo might also qualify me for that status. In my heart, I am simply trying to save 72 dark eye'd virgins from having to put up with a jihadi should the need arise. It's not a fear thing.

  2. Some folks in North Alabama have the same problem with Baptists, except I think they may be louder.

    1. Muslims are quiet until the bombs go off (think Baghdad and Beruit).

  3. Islamophobic? It's the healthier way to live. Is there no zoning there, or is your city too afraid of offending someone? What happened to the good old days when it was OK to piss everyone off.

    1. The city doesn't wish to offend. -- yes there is zoning that applies to everyone else.

  4. Are there no muslim countries to accommodate their need to dominate society?

  5. Tell me how you are/have worked to implement change in the situation, other than overt surveillance, so one can sympathize with you.
    How can it be intolerant if your not doing anything about it...?

    1. I don't expect sympathy or even empathy. I'm simply sharing. I opposed the mosque expansion in city council meetings (along with hoards of others) but it seemed that the fix was in. "Doing something about it" at this point would be illegal and also somewhat pointless.

  6. My lack of sleep and being bludgeoned by a pack of lawyers and relatives is not a good excuse for poor communication skills, or a lack of empathy for your situation. I humbly apologize for my smart ass comment.

  7. The concept of "intolerance" was invented by the left to be able to beat conservatives into submitting to the Great Truth of Liberal Dogma. Personally, I find evil and immorality offensive, especially when disguised as religion.

    1. Religion works as an effective mask.

  8. You should consider opening up a 24-hour bacon restaurant across the street, with ventilation fans that waft the sweet odors of frying bacon right into their windows. That's what I'd do. But then I'm kind of an ass when it comes to injustice and selectively-applied rule-of-law.
