Florida: Orlando Residents Up in Arms Over Seven-Story Mega Mosque Expansion
I lived in Orlando from 2001 until 2011. I was unaware of a large community of Muslims in Orlando that would need such a ginormous complex. However, three years can be a long time under Barack Hussein Obama, and quite an influx of Muslims have come into America...and keep on coming, so I can't be so sure today. Then again, it may be a case of, "build it and they will come".
We do well to recall Dave Gaubatz' research on mosques in America who wrote back in 2012:
"In the last five years I have personally visited over 250 Islamic Centers, Mosques, and Islamic Schools throughout America. The goal of my research has been to determine what Islamic leaders are teaching the young and innocent Muslim children. The findings are abhorrent, sad, unbelievable, frightening, and most disturbing is the fact our government is keeping this dangerous fact from the American people. Muslim children attending mosques and Islamic schools are being taught to hate America, our government, our military personnel, and its non Muslim population." Click for article
Most American's are completely unaware that a $100 Million dollar mosque is currently under construction in Maryland. According to Judicial Watch:
"The massive facility, which will be called Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center, will span 15 acres and will feature five buildings, including a mosque “constructed using sixteenth century Ottoman architecture that can hold 750 worshipers.” It will be a place that will help counter an epidemic of “Islamophobia” in the United States, according to Turkish government officials who recently visited the construction site. The delegation was led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose goals include increasing Islamist influence in America."

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Plans for a massive expansion to a Mosque have residents in one part of Orange County up in arms, but their issue has nothing to do with religion.
Residents who live near the proposed expansion on Apopka Vineland Road in Doctor Phillips said it’s because of the size of the project.
Grand plans for the towering new expansion to The Islamic Center of Orlando have already cleared two major hurdles with the county.
“If you look around the area there is nothing that large in terms of a footprint to go off of,” said resident Mike Kulich.
Residents said the building is going to be seven-stories and extend an extra block.
Commissioner Scott Boyd said his team is still working to find out the impacts the project would have on the roads.
The Islamic Center of Orlando did not comment.
County commissioners will have the last say on the expansion.
A little taste of what residents can expect:
"Islamic Center of Orlando, Jama Masjid is located in the heart of Orlando in very close proximity to Disney, Universal, and Sea World."
While residents are rightly worried about traffic and noise (call to prayer five times a day?) – they should also worry about housing prices and quality of life…but they should be more worried about what is currently being taught at the mosque and will be taught in the future. And the Muslims who will heed the words of the imams who frequent the massive barracks.
Narrated `Abdullah bin Masud:
"I asked Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” I asked, “What is next in goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” I further asked, what is next in goodness?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.” I did not ask Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more."
Narrated Ibn `Abbas:
"Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “There is no Hijra (i.e. migration) (from Mecca to Medina) after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately."
Narrated Abu Huraira:
"A man came to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and said, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.” Then he added, “Can you, while the Muslim fighter is in the battle-field, enter your mosque to perform prayers without cease and fast and never break your fast?” The man said, “But who can do that?” Abu- Huraira added, “The Mujahid (i.e. Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders bout (for grazing) tied in a long rope.”"
Narrated Abu Huraira:
"I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “The example of a Mujahid in Allah’s Cause– and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”"
Americans must learn that the only way to stop the spread of jihad and the conquest of America and building of multi-million dollar foreign-funded mega-mosques is to end immigration from Muslim countries. Period.
