Even worse, the court has ordered the town to pay the mosque leaders $3.25 million in jizya* (infidel extortion tax). Muhammad clearly established that people of other religions (primarily Christians and Jews) would have to pay a poll tax to Muslims called the jizya, as a reminder of their inferior status and Islam’s supremacy.
*Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Patch.com (h/t Sharon H) BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Bernards Township will allow the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge to build their mosque and also must pay $3.25 million as part of the settlement agreements.
Bernards Township Planning Board and Committee agreed on May 23 to settle both pending lawsuits with the ISBR and United States Department of Justice — which were both filed the planning board voted down the application to build an Islamic mosque on Church Street, where zoning permitted houses of worship.
The settlement agreement also resolves allegations that at the time the ISBR’s application was pending, the township revised its zoning code to unreasonably limit any house of worship from building in the township.
“The decision to accept the ISBR’s terms and the DOJ’s offer was not made lightly. However, in our opinion and that of our legal counsel, settling represents the most effective path forward to mitigate the financial risk of protracted litigation as well as resolve the issue of the ISBR’s proposed house of worship in Liberty Corner,”said Michael Turner, spokesman for Bernards Township.
Gee, do you think Bernards Township is now regretting their politically correct decision to elect Dr. Ali Chaudry as the nation’s first Pakistani Muslim Mayor after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001?
The revised plan will include lowering the number of parking spots from the 107 to 50 per the United States District Judge Michael Shipp’s Dec. 31, 2016 ruling (Which means the overflow of cars from the mosque will be parking all over the nice, quiet Basking Ridge neighborhood. I wonder how loud the Call to Prayer will be 5 times a day?)
Along with allowing the construction of the mosque on its property, the township has also agreed that its leaders and other township employees will undergo training (by designated terrorist group CAIR) on the requirements of Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) — where they will train all current and future members of the planning board and the township committee regarding diversity and inclusion, including with regard to Islam and Muslims.
In a separate settlement agreement, the township agreed to pay the ISBR $3.25 million in jiyza— which is comprised of $1.5 million in damages and $1.75 million in attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses.
