images-1A citizens’ group is again encouraging its neighbors to support its battle against the building of an Islamic mosque in a historic section of the township with their attendance, and their dollars. (Where is a Gavin Boby MosqueBusters’ when we need one?)

NJ.com The Bernards Township Citizens for Responsible Development is asking its neighbors to attend the Bernards Township Planning Board meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Municipal Building in Basking Ridge to help convince the planning board not to grant a site plan approval to the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge, Inc. for a 4,250-square-foot mosque with two 35′ ft minarets at 124 Church St. where a 1950s-style ranch house currently stands.

The opponents have attended a number of planning board meetings since the proposal was first presented in September of last year. They have cited concerns over traffic and parking issues, the proximity to the Liberty Corner Firehouse, and potential environmental issues. The group is requesting donations on its website to support its efforts.

“At the hearings to date, our attorney and members of the public have pointed out the inconsistencies and inadequacies of the (society’s) proposal and experts, particularly their confusing statements about the estimated size of the congregation and its parking need,” the residents’ group wrote in a letter to the community. The society has proposed building 50 parking spaces for the mosque, which its lawyer said is the adequate number under a township ordinance specifying off-street parking requirements for churches.

Proposed mosque will have two towering minarets that shout out ‘BEWARE! Sharia has entered the community”

But town has asked the society to increase the number of parking spaces to 110. In a Jan. 3 memo to the planning board, board attorney Jonathan Drill and board planner David Banisch said “while a mosque use is similar to a church use in that both are houses of worship, there are differences between them in terms of parking.”

“I am shocked that they are not using the standards set forth in the (township) ordinance,” Islamic Society of Basking Ridge attorney Vincent T. Bisogno has told NJ.com.

Entering_LC_signBernards Township We are concerned about the impact of the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge’s (ISBR) development proposal to convert a current residential property to effectively commercial use by building a nearly 4,500 square foot Mosque complete with a 50 space parking lot on Church Street in Liberty Corner.  We currently have limited information about the proposed development and our concerns may evolve as we learn more. Based on the information released to date by the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge and the news media, our concerns include the following:

  • public safety and traffic congestion at the accident-prone intersection of Somerville Rd/ Church Street and the surrounding busy intersections

  • the proximity of the development to the Liberty Corner Firehouse

  • the outsized scale of the proposed project

  • the proposed hours of use, which include activities at least 5-7 days a week

  • proposed lighting for the structure and parking lot

  • potential wetlands and environmental issues

  • the inevitability of future growth, given statements by ISBR representatives that the facility will be adequate for only 10 years

  1. DEAR BNI:

    Why are these people dumb enough to put a mosque SMACK IN A RESIDENTIAL ZONE? Traffic in residence areas can’t hold it because the roads are not built for heavy use; it should be in the commercial districts, if at all.

    Where I come from, there is a tiny mosque in the commercial part of town.
    The churches in my area PREDATE the subdivisions around them, while new churches form on larger roads with two full, divided lanes.

    A mosque in a subdivision in a burden on the residents in the community and the Muslims that can’t park. It makes no sense not to put it on a properly set road meant for commuting, YET THEY STICK TO THIS ASPECT.

    Why is that? Churches don’t develop in subdivisions because of traffic. They develop on the outskirts. Why does this not hold true with mosques? Is there some point in this?

    This question is bugging me.

    • I live in town and have tried to get attendance up and more people interested. It hasn’t worked. I think it’s a combination of people too busy watching Dancing With the Stars, being afraid of the Islamophobic label, and not worrying about it because it’s not directly in their backyard. Sad. By the way – the photo above is NOT from the Bernards Township Planning Board Meeting. That is not our room and I wish we had that kind of attendance.

      • LC, please send me anything you have and I will publish it. We want to support your efforts in any way we can. BTW, I watch Dancing with the Stars and still have time to fight the Islamic threat. LOL

  2. Always look at the planned locations as forts that are being built by the enemy. The mohommedist think that like in Afghanistan, Iraq and other places the safest place to be is a mosque. Little do they know…………………………

  3. Protect Innocents! Stop the Muslim military invasion of America, Britain, Europe and the Free World!

    Turkish Prime Minister, Erdogan, explained the function of mosques. Erdogan: The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…

    Abu Baseer in London: “One of the goals of immigration is the revival of the duty of jihad and enforcement of power over the infidels. Immigration and jihad go together.

    The Quran teaches hate, violence and mass murder of non-Muslims and commands Muslims to wage jihad against non-Muslims and conquer all nations. In a dreadful act of treason many millions of Muslims, soldiers of Allah, have been imported into our countries by our leaders, in order to facilitate jihad and Islamic conquest of our nations. It is the greatest betrayal by nations’ leaders in all of human history.

    Koran 9:5 “Kill Jews and Christians wherever you find them”.

    “The whole of Europe will become Islamic. Like the army of the sultan we will conquer Rome.”
    − Former Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan, June 2002

  4. ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION! It is a totalitarian, POLITICAL system that calls for the savage genocide of non-Muslim innocents!

    Founder of Islam, Mohammed: “I have been made victorious with terror”, “Wage war on the infidel and kill them until Islam is dominant” (Koran 8:39)

    “Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and victor, after being expelled from it twice – once from the South, from Andalusia, and a second time from the East, when it knocked several times on the door of Athens.” Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, leading Sunni cleric

    “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
    – Houari (Mohamed) Boumedienne, President of Algeria, 1965 – 1978, in a 1974 speech at the UN

  5. Protect our people in ALL of our Free World countries from Muslim military invasion, COLONIZATION and conquest!

    MUSLIMS CALL THEIR MILITARY COMMAND CENTERS, MOSQUES
    and the Obama administration is determined there will be as many as possible.

    http://www.wnd.com
    40,000 Iran agents in Western Hemisphere
    Now hidden in Latin America, awaiting ‘operations’ against U.S.
    “We must get ready for global operation. … Our fellow fighters are present in all five continents of the world. … An international jihad must be provoked; we must fear no one.”

    The Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence division runs operations out of mosques.

    Those operations include recruitment, reconnaissance and transfer of arms and cash.

    This source also verified then that all Imam Ali Mosques are controlled by regime intelligence operatives and that the cells are well placed in Europe and America for terrorist acts…

  6. Thanks for the heads up ! will be sending a little seed money and hopefuly they will turn around and help me when my time of need to stop the first mosque in mt state happens , and I know it will

  7. The US conquest will be a lot easier than the Europe venture that required dozens of years of slow suicide. I am positive they are surprised at the speed and ease, with which they are spreading in the US. Protected and facilitated from the very top and massively financed to lay out the foundation at the bottom, embraced by the judicial system that systematically overturns every ruling standing in their way. It’s incomprehensible the way civilized world is being taken over by the hordes of the barbarians and no warfare is required. The fall of Roman Empire is repeating itself with the modern twist.

  8. If granted -in time it will be too small and they will start praying in the streets ,then start their demands to build more mosques -in England the town of Liechester has 200 mosques ,they are rude and arrogant and will park in your driveway -footpath anywhere they can -with or without your permission ,you will be opening the flood gates to -hell.

  9. Jonathan Drill and David Banisch are wrong when they say that a mosque’s use and a church’s use are similar — they are not. A church is used tp worship God, a mosque is used to indoctrinate ignorant Moslems about the superiority of Islam and to assure them they are better than everyone else and have the right to belittle and look down on non-Moslems. A mosque’s original and prime purpose is to plan jihad and make battle plans to conquer all non-Moslems — war plans are made in mosques. The final insult is that this propertyis on Church Street — imagine a mosque on Church Street!!!!!!!!!

    • The Board members and attorney cannot consider the merits of Islam – it just doesn’t work that way. Just a fact. They can only consider land use law. BTW – not only is the site on Church Street – it is in the Liberty Corner section of town, directly across the street from a 9/11 memorial. Seventeen townspeople were murdered that day at the WTC.

      • LC, unfortunately, all that is evil about Islam cannot be considered in opposition movements against mosques. It has to be zoning, traffic, noise, congestion, etc. reasons. But that doesn’t mean you can’t gather support form the community by printing up fliers and sending/emailing them to people, local officials and newspapers. There are over 10,000 posts here you can use if you like. Look in the sidebar at the different Categories, under which you’ll find a mountain of information, true stories, videos and photos galore that you are free to use. May I suggest you start with the ‘Persecution of Christians’ and ‘Islam in America’ categories. Let me know if there is a specific area about which you need material.

      • Thank you, BNI. I have plenty of material and am well informed. I do admire your work. I have already done this to a certain extent. Very few people have been open. Frankly – except for a couple of handfuls of people – my community sucks. Also, the ISBR has already put my name out in the press as anti-Islam. I am fully aware of how they operate and am not afraid. I recognize they may sue me individually for defamation or some other bogus charge if they lose. That’s okay, too – I’ll fight and I’ll win. However, right now, I will allow the board to do their job within the parameters of land use. They seem to be doing a very good job., thank goodness.
