Newton Mosque


A few days ago, the Newton County Citizen posted an article about a proposed mosque and compound, including a school, cemetery, and housing on a 135-acre piece of land on Hwy 162 in Newton County. 

Needless to say, many people in that area are upset that they never knew about this, even though the plans have been on the drawing board, so to speak, since August 2015. 

Nonprofit plans to build mosque on Ga. Highway 162 in Newton County…mosquenewton/article_fb91a235-8e7c-5c2a-bb7a-fc436

In Newton County, a “church” does not have to have any rezoning requests submitted according to the article.  “Al Maad Al Islami Inc. has received administrative approval for construction of a place of worship, to be called Avery Community Church, on 135.168 acres located across Highway 162 from Avery Place subdivision. The property, located at the northwest intersection of County Line Road and Highway 162, is zoned agricultural residential and no rezoning is needed for construction of the house of worship or the cemetery.”

I spoke with Shane Sealy, P&Z Director for Jasper County, and asked him about the zoning for churches in Jasper County.  Proposed churches in the AG district of Jasper County must have a special use permit.  However, in other zoned districts of the county, no additional zoning, or notification to the public is required.

Tomorrow night, August 16 at 7:00PM, the Newton County BOC will hold a regular meeting, and the mosque development will be on the agenda.  People in Newton County are upset because they have been blindsided by this proposed development.  Other information about the owner from news reports is as follows:

“Since the organization was listed in court documents as doing business as Masjid At-Taqwa, a search of this term netted interesting results.  It just so happens that Masjid At-Taqwa has organizations/facilities in Texas; Brooklyn, NY; Connecticut, Michigan, the UK, Canada and New Zealand – the same as Mohammad Islam.  And, the Imam of Masjid At-Taqwa of New York happens to be Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted coconspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Siraj is also notorious for his advocacy of an Islamic State here in the United States.”

Citizens, be informed and stay informed!  Only by being informed can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County.  That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.

  1. Christians Must Stand Together says:

    The traditional Christian church is under assault. First, social justice warriors have been hugely successful in supplanting solid biblical teaching with feel good cultural Marxism, which has served to not only undermine the foundation of the church, but to also destroy huge swathes of the traditional American family, as well.

    After the authority of the church, sufficiently softened by the progressive belief that all religions are equal, there comes another, more destructive, assault on the weakened base of the Christian faith in the form of a rival religion, which also has a military (jihadi), a government (Caliphate), and rule of law (Sharia).

    Christianity is a faith. Islam is a religion enforced by a military and ruled by despotism. They are not compatible.

    Historically, Islam is the archenemy of Christianity. The only reason Islam has not replaced Christianity is because Christian men of centuries past defended their faith and family with blood and treasure from hordes of invading Muslims bent on enslaving their families and pillaging their nations. Over the centuries, Islam has not changed at all, but Christianity has, becoming soft in a suicidal quest to be all-inclusive, to even the most deviant forms of anti-Christian behavior.

    It is sad to see Christendom in such a weakened spiritual and moral state of decay that church authority no longer recognizes a clear and present danger to the Christian faith and nation, even when staring it in the face.

    Charles Martel must be spinning in his grave.

  2. Perplexed says:

    We in Jasper County should be concerned as well. That is a little to close for comfort, in my opinion. The history is not encouraging.

  3. Scrap Recovery says:

    Islam are Not our friends. Women have NO say with out their husband saying they can. The price of the sub-division will drop about 60%. Some will buy them and sell to Muslims at 150% above price as the government will give them the monies. This is why so many own our gas stations,motels,and some other kind of stores. The government gives them monies to buy them interest free! They here for 6 months then sell it to their cousin or bro’s who gets monies from Uncle Sam. Then they send monies back to their country to fight the Americans! But everyone says Oh they are our Friends BS!

    • More At Stake Than Money says:

      With the Islamic invasion of the American homeland, there is more at stake than issues of money, property or even civil rights. Much more.

      In their own words and in the words of their holy Koran, of which there is no shortage , Muslims make it perfectly clear than the duty of the faithful Muslim is not to assimilate, but to convert the infidels or if that fails, then dominate and subjugate them. They do not come to be Americans, but to replace Americans. Of this, you can be sure.

      Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)

      CNN host Fareed Zakaria calls for jihad rape of white women

      Fareed Zakaria, CNN host of ‘Foreign Affairs,’ has in his private blog called for the merciless rape of white females by Islamic minority groups shortly after openly gloating over the rise in premature deaths of white males in his article in The Washington Post.
      Zakaria’s blog post unapologetically calls to increase the death rate of white Middle America by systematically targeting Caucasian females.

      “The white race is rightfully failing because it is a foolish, arrogant, and self-absorbed ethnicity that has racism infused into its very genes. While the sharp incline of the death rate of white males is a good start, the solution to the ‘white question’ will not be reached until there is a sharp decline in the population of white females as well. Much more needs to be done in this regard if this country is ever to advance from its ignorant backwardness towards being an actually inhabitable nation.

      Thankfully, the Prophet Muhammad has given us a foolproof way to speed up the decline of a vanquished nation by treating their women as our sex slaves. They may try and fight the unstoppable tide, but their resistance will grow only weaker as the white race loses its ability to keep its head above water. We may yet see some final convulsions before white Middle America is decreased to a manageable number where it can be more easily controlled.”

      The blog post was removed from Zakaria’s blog within a few hours, after it began to receive negative attention.
      CNN officials have refused to take action against their employee.
