Cue CAIR's legal arm, the Obama Department of Justice. Bev Perlson, citizen warrior, reports in:
After 4 LONG years and many many meetings, the 18 County Board members of DuPage Cnty voted down the Petition filed by the Islamic Center of the Western Suburbs to turn a residential home in DuPage Cnty into a worship center/Mosque!
Many Many thanks to all those in DuPage Cnty for supporting your neighbors. There were times when we only had 6-8 people at these meetings but today we had 50 neighbors show up! Thank you all and please keep the neighbors on Army Trail Road in your prayers. They have been through threats and intimidation and now please pray they can live in peace in their nice rural community!
Thanks again to all those who stuck with it and kept coming to the meetings! Special thanks to the DuPage Cnty Zoning Board members who voted 6-1 (4 times!), and thanks to the 16 Board Members who today voted to uphold the health, safety and welfare of the neighbors on Army Trail Road!!!

This is how its done. As for the three dhimmis on the DuPage County board who voted for the mosque on the quiet, residential street, target them for ouster come election time. Vote out these three tools: Only board members Grant Eckhoff, R-Wheaton; Michael Ledonne, R-Lombard; and Tony Michelassi, D-Aurora supported the zoning change." (hat tip Katie)
The DuPage County Board on Tuesday voted 15-3 to reject plans to allow an Islamic group to use a house in an unincorporated area in the northwest part of the county for a prayer center.
The Islamic Center of Western Suburbs long had hoped for a conditional zoning use allowing the group to use the house on Army Trail Road near West Chicago as a gathering place for up to 30 of its members at any given time.
The zoning approval would have required to the group to construct a 20-space parking area on the 2.06-acre property, and would have required the group to hold all worship services indoors and not use the facility for activities with the celebrations of Ramadan, Eid or the Friday Jumuah prayer.
UPDATE: There were two votes taken, the first was 15-3, but then County Board member Zay asked for a second count and that was 16-2
