She wants to sell this nice peice of property for a mosque. They are probably paying a premium to buy it. I wonder what else is for sale at rock bottom, discount prices?
That beauty will be destroyed, Lobos said, if the city approves plans for a 20,000-square-foot mosque, gymnasium and cemetery on about 8 acres of land — some of which is currently owned by Mayor Diana Preston — at U.S. 29 and Hood Road.
“It’s going to disturb the peace we’re enjoying, the peace I’ve worked so hard for, the peace I’ve sacrificed so much for,” said Lobos, a mother of two who works and attends college full time.
Lobos and hundreds of other residents are expected to descend on Lawrenceville Thursday to speak out against the rezoning and special use permit requested by the local Muslim congregation of Dar-E-Abbas.
But Wasi Zaidi, a founding member of the 11-year-old congregation, said the group has outgrown its two 2,000-square-foot buildings on the same property. It needs the additional space to accommodate Lilburn’s growing Muslim community and the 90 families who worship there.
At the rate that they have kids they will have out grown the town in a few years anyway. Why not just give them the towns. The men can have up to 4 wives and the wives go on welfare. The town is paying for themselves to become wedged out. But what happens when the there are not enough people left that support them? When the people who put money in the kitty become not enough to support the kiddy’s? Then what?
