Texans Threaten To Throw Pigs’ Blood On Land To Stop Plans For Muslim Cemetery

A showdown in Texas is brewing over a proposed Muslim cemetery.

Located just 25 miles from where two Muslim extremists were killed while trying to attack a “Draw Muhammad” free speech event, residents in a Texas community want no part of  the project.

And some are threatening to place pigs’ heads on posts and spill pigs’ blood on the property to keep an Islamic group from buying the land, CBS Dallas-Forth Worth reported.

Plans for the cemetery are prompting concerns about whether Muslim burial practices will impact the town’s drinking water, and about the long-term plans of the Islamic Association of Collin County, a coalition of five Islamic centers in the county.

But residents turned out in force at a City Council meeting earlier this month to oppose their efforts. More
