Angry residents of a small Texan town have threatened to put pigs’ heads on poles and pour the blood of pigs onto land which has been earmarked for a Muslim cemetery in Farmersville. The latest manifestation of fast-growing anti-Islam sentiment in America surrounds a small plot of undeveloped land 35 miles northeast of Dallas.
Telegraph It is a row which predates the killing of five people at a US Marines recruiting centre in Chattanooga, Tennessee by Kuwaiti-born Youssuf Abdulazeez last week.
Some residents of the Farmersville, which has a population of 3,000 said that their main concern was the way in which Muslims inter their dead (In shrouds with NO caskets in the ground).
“When somebody dies they bury them at that time. They don’t know whether they were shot, diseased or anything else. All they do is wrap them in a sheet from the grave and bury them,” Troy Gosnell told the local CBS station.
Patricia Munroe voiced fears that local drinking water could be polluted. “We used to grow onions here. We sure enough don’t want to be growing bodies,” said another resident, Mont Hendrick.
Feelings ran high at a town meeting earlier this week, where direct action was proposed to prevent the Muslims pressing ahead with the project. (Video below) Take and dump pig’s blood and put pig’s heads on a post so they won’t buy the land,” one resident said.
Alia Salem with the designated terrorist group CAIR- Council on American Islamic Relations of Dallas, tried to dispel locals’ concerns. “They are fearful of what they don’t understand and hopefully it’s an opportunity for us to come together and learn a little bit more about each other and hopefully dispel some of those misconceptions. (“Misconceptions” like Islam is actually NOT a religion of peace? That ship has sailed, don’t waste our time)
