Meanwhile, will Moscow authorities allow a mosque to be built where a church was disallowed?Â Sounds familiar.

Murfreesboro mosque opponents appear in Chancery Court
Attorneys representing opponents of the construction of an Islamic community center in Murfreesboro appeared in Chancery Court Monday morning.
Plaintiffs asked Chancellor Robert E. Corlew III to impose an injunction on any further construction on the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro claiming approval did not provide adequate public comment and that its members will impose Sharia Law on Murfreesboro residents.
“Why would we give any religion the right to cancel our rights under the United States Constitution,” Plaintiff’s Attorney Joe Brandon Jr. said in opening statements to the court. “If the Planning Commission had approved this for Osama bin Laden, would they still feel there should be no public hearing?” Â (Murfreesboro Post)
This was the second rally organized by theÂ Bay People Inc., the organization created by the people living in the Sheepshead Bay area of Brooklyn, NY. Like theÂ first rally, between 200 and 300 people showed up, but this time, across the street there was a counter-rally of several dozen in support of the proposed mosque.
A crack in the mosque wall? It seems that Hisham Elzanaty is the real power, the real owner, behind the Ground Zero mega mosque, and he is looking at a new location for this insulting monstrosity. (Pamela has the story)

by Jay Deshmukh
TEHRAN (AFP) â€“ Iran’s supreme leaderÂ Ayatollah Ali KhameneiÂ urged world Muslims on Wednesday to join the Palestinian “resistance” againstÂ Israel, but his call was dismissed by Palestinian presidentÂ Mahmud Abbas.
“The only way to save Palestine is resistance,” Khamenei said in an address to a global summit organised byÂ TehranÂ in aid of the war-batteredÂ Gaza StripÂ and the Palestinians.
“Support and help to Palestinians is a mandatory duty of all Muslims. I now tell all Muslim brothers and sisters to join forces and break the immunity of the Zionist criminals.”
The following statement was received by Islamophobie.net from a woman who tried to enter a BNP bank branch and was refused on account of her headscarf. Together with the story below they sees it as a sign of Islamophobia in France.Â
The woman says that she came to the BNP branch at the Paris suburb of Fontenay-aux-Roses on Sept. 23rd, 2008 at 9:15am to perform operations in her bank account. She wore a scarf on her head which covered her hair but left her face visible. She entered the door by pressing the green button, and then pressed the button to open the second door in order to enter. Here, one of the employees told her via loudspeaker that for security reasons she must remove her veil to enter.”
