Cha-ching! Mosque wins $1.7M with help from Obama’s DOJ

Imam once investigated for ties to 9/11 terror now has gov't support

A Michigan community being sued by the Obama Justice Department and CAIR for rejecting the construction of a large Islamic school has agreed to settle out of court for $1.7 million and allow the project to go forward.

The tentative settlement agreed to by Pittsfield Township would be one of the largest cash payouts ever by a U.S. municipality to a mosque. The deal could send shock waves throughout the nation among communities fighting to keep large mosques and madrasas out of residential areas.

The settlement grants an Ann Arbor-based mosque led by a Syrian imam the right to build a 70,000-square-foot Islamic school, a residential development consisting of 22 duplex units and three single-family homes, plus a park, the Detroit News reported.

Muslims been in charge for years with the Obama administration. Muslims helping Muslims. I thought the local jurisdictions had control of building permits not the Feds.

It will be easy to make them change their mind.
Think about it. The people of the community must organize and get an action plan in place. Get off your butts! It is your community. You have plenty of minors who can help with this project.
