The signs were intended to keep people from the mosque from taking spaces that were meant for shoppers. They would have been much better worded as “No Mosque Parking,” but it’s too late now. The police are investigating a “hate crime,” Hamas-linked CAIR has sent it out in its daily mailing, and soon the politically correct police will find the person responsible and destroy his or her life with spurious and malevolent “hate” charges. Meanwhile, the shopping center can forget about ever keeping people from the mosque from parking in spaces reserved for shoppers. The shoppers will just have to go elsewhere.
“”˜No Muslim” signs at Texas shopping center spark ire,” by Cheryl K. Chumley for The Washington Times, August 9:
Signs banning Muslims from using a Houston shopping center parking lot mysteriously appeared this week, generating massive outrage.
The posters, which read “No Muslim parking in the Westview Shopping Center,” were seen in recent days outside the mall, which sits across the street from a mosque, a local television station reported.
The signs, which also warned violators that their vehicles would be towed, have since been removed, the station reported.
Some speculated that the signs were spawned by large crowds expected at the mosque as the Muslim month-long fast for the holy month of Ramadan came to an end. Several mall employees privately expressed frustration with mosque members occupying parking spots meant for shoppers.
Muslims attending the mosque were nevertheless offended, and nobody has claimed responsibility for the signs, the station reported. Police are investigating.
One mosque worshiper said, “I”m very shocked because we do live in a society that”s supposed to be very accepting and this is what we all preach.”
