In a hilarious example of protest, a Texan farmer went up against his Muslim neighbors using his pig farm.
In Katy, Texas, an Islamic group purchased 11 acres bordering Craig Baker’s 200-year-old farm. The property was intended as the site of a mega facility for the area’s Muslim residents. It featured a mosque, a learning center/school, and other living accommodations.
Baker said the feud started when the president of the Katy Islamic Association asked him to remove some of his cattle which was in close proximity to the site. He especially requested him to remove his pigs elsewhere. At a later town meeting, Kamel Fotouh denied making the request.
“That was the last straw for me… calling me a liar,” Baker said. So, he decided to take matters into his own hands by scheduling pig races each Friday evening at the call to prayer.
Accompanied by BBQ’s, the races drew lots of area residents concerned about the mosque’s construction. Community members were concerned about terror, drainage, and traffic problems that would be caused by the massive Muslim center and gave money to support Baker’s plan.
Adding to their worries was the fact that Katy Islamic Association project was taken over by the Muslim American Society. Although the website says that the association is designed for “charitable, religious, social, cultural and educational, not-for-profit” organizations, it was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group established by Hassan al-Banna in 1928. Its ideology has laid the foundation for every Islamic terrorist group in the world. According to Richard Clark, former chief terrorism adviser on the U.S. National Security Council for both presidents Clinton and Bush, the group is the single link between al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Islamic jihad.
The Brotherhood is very active in promoting attacks against the U.S In 2004, the organization called for support of America’s enemies in Iraq and issued a fatwa (law) for Muslims to fight U.S. forces.
The Muslim Brotherhood represents a clear threat to American safety and security because the group is all over the country. Its leaders in the U.S. and Egypt established the Muslim Association Society (MAS) in 1993 in order to gain political influence in American politics. It worked wonderfully.
Brotherhood associations are present in a number of “legitimate” groups that work for the spread of Islam. The Islamic Society of Baltimore and the Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA) were both founded and operated by Brotherhood members. The IARA organization was shut down by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2004 because of terrorism support. They funneled money to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and other terrorist groups.
Abdurahman Alamoudi, the founding member of the Islamic Society of Boston is serving a jail sentence for illegal dealings with Libya. That organization was found to have ties with the Boston Marathon bomber.
In an email that was forwarded to Barak Hussein concerning the “Ground Zero” mosque project, Muslim scholar Al-Husein Madhany wrote, “MAS continues to teach to their members–at its highest levels of leadership–that all governments should become Islamic and that non-Islamic judicial systems should be boycotted or replaced, by soft power and by force. They do this while promoting the idea in public that their goal is to support and defend the U.S. Constitution.”
However, the Muslim Association Society is still going strong. Obama didn’t do anything.
Their mission, which was recently removed from the site is to promote Islam as a total way of life. For that and other reasons, Baker didn’t want to be pushed around on his own property.
His pig races were attended by hundreds of neighbors who came to show their collective support. At the time of the dispute, the population of the town was approximately 74 percent white and 24 percent Hispanic.
Despite the initial opposition, MAS leaders in Katy came to terms with Baker. When the giant training facility opened, it was attended by almost everyone in the community. Baker and Hasham Ebaid, the center’s vice-president at the time of the opening, have said that they are at peace.
Baker explained that he hasn’t had any problem since the association apologized to him.
