On March 13, 2011, Voorhies Ave and 28th St, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn
There was a protest by the citizens of that community
They were protesting the planned Mosque/Community Center to be built on Voorhies Ave. (in this empty lot behind the supporters of the mosque).
This is a RESIDENTIAL community and the Community outrage regarding this still unexplained decision to choose their street for this mosque is of great concern.
But the interlopers came out to yell racist (and much worse) at the local citizens. The supporters of the illegal mosque were joined by the discredited ex-principal of KGIA , Debbie Almontaser (she was enjoying the megaphone) But Almontaser took a “break” when she saw her picture being taken by moi (at a public rally with plenty of press-coverage).
Guess she relaxed later when the press was her own (Robert Spencer is being blocked from taking pictures by two of the World Can’t Wait Leftists). Yet their photographers were all over the other side of the street.
Back to mosque-crowd . Also, joining Almontaser, in support of the mosque/community center, was Imam Shamsi Ali.
Shamsi Ali is the Imam of the “Mega-Mega” Mosque on the upper east side, that just happened to have been built by the father( no less) of Imam Rauf. Imam Rauf is that Sharia-promoting and currently former-head of the Bloomberg-supported Ground Zero Mosque aka Park51.
And no hard-core sponsored rally would be complete without the familiar hard-core Lefties. Ted “the Troll” (grey-bushy hair) was there. Ted is a retired teacher (oy) but he seems to have found a new calling (perhaps PAID) since no matter what , if there’s a Hard-core Leftist protest, Ted is there.
AND Screetch Marini (a chum of Elaine Brower’s) hiding behind his sign blocking pictures of his crowd. Free Speech for the Lefties Only.
But, where or WHERE was the profane Elaine Brower (of the VILE World Can’t Wait). See scary picture below that I found of her with her Marxist CHUM, Charles Barron.
No matter. There were others to carry the torch of Elaine. Watch the video at of this ‘sweet’ child from approx 7:16 to 7:52 . And be sure to READ his lips for an example of the disrespectful profanity that came from the mouths of babes. Taught by example?
And WHERE were the politicians (like the truant “I-wanta-be-the-next-mayor” Anthony Weiner) The pols are very silent. Elections are over. So they are no refusing to give the community even a simple guarantee that there will be no more illegal building of this mosque/community center.
So we ask again, Why HERE in this quiet residential neighborhood? The demographics don’t support changing the make-up of this community. And as Pamela Geller said, in her passionate speech (in video starting at 1:42) “If that mosque is built, in 5 years no one will recognize this community.”
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer were there in support of the residents and as always they spoke the truth. No lies. No hatred. No racism. (their speeches are from 1:42 to 6:20) they spoke confidently while hatred was spewed at them and the community from the mosque supporters across the street.
See VIDEO for Geller and Spencers rousing speeches:
Take Note: This is not a community built on hatred or racism. A diverse community of immigrants.
The Bay People simply do not see why a mosque/community center should be built on Voorhies Avenue. They continue to ask: Why here? Why in this neighborhood? They are met with silence or insults but the questions remain unanswered, Why has M.A.S. chosen their neighborhood?

The People of Sheepshead Bay need help. They are fighting City Hall.
They are fighting ignorance.
God help them. Their future is our future. We must Fight Back. Fight Back. Fight Back
