Muslims Take Over Government In U.S. City For First Time In History
After Tuesday’s elections, Muslims are now running a U.S. city’s government, the first of its kind in American history. Hopefully, their new governance will serve as a wakeup call to all Americans who don’t want to live under Sharia law.
The city council of Hamtramck, Michigan, is said to be the first Muslim-majority government in the U.S., The Blaze reports.
Out of a council of 6 members, the top three elected officials are Anam Miah, Abu Musa, and Saad Almasmari. Mohammed Hassan, who was not up for re-election this cycle, holds the fourth of six seats, making the city council the first Muslim majority.
The council, scheduled for its first official meeting in January, will bring big changes to the town of over 22,000 people.
“Hamtramck has made history,” Bill Meyer, a local community leader, told the outlet. “The election was far from close, with the three Muslim winners each gaining over 1,000 votes, while the other three candidates garnered less than 700 votes each.”
Almasmari assured that the Muslim-majority council will work hard to represent all residents, regardless of religious beliefs, but the city has seen more and more bias in favor of Muslims in the past decade, according to the Washington Post.
The city, which was once considered a Polish-Catholic enclave of Detroit, has allowed mosques to broadcast the call to prayer over loud speakers. Muslims are also privileged with practicing their religious exercises in the public square.
Hamtramck has a large population of Pakistani, Bengali, and Yemini citizens, hence, the growing Muslim community. First inhabited by Poles, the city has seen an incredible influx of Muslim migrants, seemingly outnumbering the non-Muslim majority, at least politically.
Hamtramck has been heavily influenced by the overflow of Muslim migrants in Dearborn, which is infamous for stoning Christian protesters who showed up at a Muslim festival.
Dearborn has become a no-go zone for non-Muslims, especially Christians, and Hamtramck is following closely behind. In these areas, Sharia law is stealthily implemented and the Constitution is shunned. Makeshift Sharia courts are set up to trump civil court, as was one Islamic council in Texas before being shut down.
Muslims have the media and education system in their pockets, relying on them to spew whitewashed Islamic teaching and paint Muslims as the victims of their own brutality. It was only a matter of time before the growing Muslim minority was able to take over local governments. More
