Citizens Forbidden to Mention Islam at Hearing to Approve Mosque

Don’t like it that terror-associated Muslims are building a mosque next to your house? Then shut up — so says the law:

In a settlement agreement, which reads more like an instrument of surrender, Bernards Township (“Township”), New Jersey officials agreed that, in addition to a $3.5 million payment to Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (“ISBR”), residents and citizens of the Township are prohibited from commenting on “Islam” or “Muslims” at the upcoming public hearing to approve the settlement. Astonishingly, a federal judge approved the prohibition as a fully enforceable Order of the Court.

Fortunately, the Thomas More Law Center is fighting back with a suit:

TMLC’s lawsuit alleges that Bernards Township’s settlement agreement constitutes a prior restraint on speech based on content, as well as, a violation of the Establishment Clause because it prefers Islam over other religions.

TMLC is defending Christopher and Loretta Quick, who live near the proposed mosque construction site but who are not allowed to mention Islam.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented: “As we have previously documented, ISBR has taken the extraordinary step of concealing significant links on their website to a radical group named by the federal government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in America history, the Islamic Society of North America (“ISNA”). ISNA is claimed by the Muslim Brotherhood as one of “our organizations.” According to internal documents seized by the FBI, the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy is to engage in a “grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within . . .”

Achieving this objective is only conceivable with help from non-Muslims, which expansionist Islamists consistently receive from the sort of liberals who control the courts.

It is already gaining a foothold, imposed by Islamophile liberals.
