Last year's protest: mosque site on the top right of above photo -- look at the mosquestrosity now.
I wanted to update Atlas readers on the Brotherhood mega mosque going up on a quiet street in Sheepshead Bay. As predicted, it is much larger than proposed, and way out of proportion of the other sweet homes on Voorhies Avenue. Of course, no accomodation was made for parking, so you know it is going to be bedlam, especially on Friday.
The politicians who sold out the Bay people are waking up. Scroll to read the letter which the Bay people received from Brooklyn’s Borough President Markowitz.
After review of the documents about this construction that the Bay people provided him with, his office finally realized that there is a loophole in the law that allowed mosque owners to manipulate the numbers of people in order to avoid providing parking space.
Markowitz is worried that this deliberate misinterpretation of the zoning law will lead to other houses of worship exploiting this same waiver to avoid parking space and ruin the quality of life of people living in neighborhood. And they should. If the mosques can do it, churches and synagogues should, too.
The Bay people filed an article 78 and the hearing will take a place on May 7, 2012. This fight is far from over, and the homeowners and residents in this community will employ every possible avenue to ensure that this peaceful and quiet residential street remains just that -- RESIDENTIAL
As you know, the legal process is lengthy and the Bay People need to keep collecting money to sustain the fight. Further contributions to this important cause can be made online via PayPal (www.BayPeople.org) or by sending a check or money order payable to:

Hel them. They have quite the fight on their hands. They are up against vicious Muslim Brotherhood attorneys that support genocide and Islamic supremacism.
