Super Mosque Planned for Memphis

Pamela Geller, who has been following the progress of radical Islam in our country, writes this today. The headline is “Target Memphis: Another Massive Mega-Mosque Compound in Middle America.” She calls it the quiet Jihad tsunami.

She writes:

“Memphis is one of those gateway cities in which the State Department dumps whole Muslim communities under the Refugee Resettlement programs. The OIC (Organizaion of Islamic Cooperation)-driven UN designates who and who isn’t a refugee. Is it any wonder that Christians are trapped in Muslim countries while jihadists are welcomed here with full entitlements? These towns and cities like Lewiston, Maine; Nashville; Emporia, Kansas et al that are designated as ‘preferred communities’ don’t know what hit them. Memphis is a ‘preferred community’ for refugees, according to the US government, which is doling out grants to further assist these hostile invaders.

“Now that beleaguered city is getting a seven-million-dollar, 63,144-square-foot mega-mosque. Who pays for these mosquestrosities?

“…And now a monster mosque. This is not an Islamic center, it is a rabat – a point of contact at the heart of the infidel territory raided.”

Geller then refers to a Memphis Business Journal article that discusses the Memphis Islamic Center plans a $6.5 million expansion in Shelby County.

“The Memphis Islamic Center plans this summer to launch construction of the first phase of a $6.5 million recreational center in Shelby County.

“The MIC is accepting bids from general contractors to build a multifunctional hall as part of a planned Family Life Center on vacant land at 10299 Humphrey Road, next door to its current 6,000-square-foot facility.

“The three-phase, 63,144-square-foot project will eventually include an indoor gym, exercise rooms, classrooms, a daycare area, a library and more worship space, said Dr. Bashar Shala, chairman of the MIC board.

“The MIC’s 55-acre campus could also eventually have an elderly care and community medical facility, Shala said.

“Memphis-based Pickering Firm Inc. is the project’s engineer and architect.”

Geller notes that Islamic communities are spreading throughout Tennessee in Murfreesboro, Memphis and Antioch.
She is concerned about a Memphis imam who called Christians and Jews filthy and that their lives hold no value in the state of jihad.

His name is Yaser Qadi and here is some of what he believes:

According to Geller, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee William Killian has vowed to criminalize postings on social media that critcize or offend Islam or offend Muslims like the Memphis imam Yaser Qadi.
