I am familiar with this area, and lets just say that I can foresee this mosque being vandalized and set on fire. Regularly. I know precisely where this place is, and that whole Southern Hospitality thing is a load of shit. I hope I’m wrong, but I fear for people’s safety if the damned fearmongering doesn’t stop.

Also too, you literally cannot go more than a mile, possibly two, in the Kennesaw area and not see a church. And they are everywhere, free standing, in store fronts and some churches that don’t have buildings yet use public schools on Sundays to have services. Some churches with small parking lots use nearby schools for parking and run shuttle vans back and forth for the congregants. So all this crap about extra traffic and parking and other shit is just that, shit.

It’s always good to hear from someone familiar with an area IRL (even if the news they bring isn’t so great, heh).

I also fear for the safety of Muslims (and other minorities) in places like that, but I can pretty much guarantee you the Muslims won’t leave, come what may. They know that if they do, then it’ll only be worse for other Muslims in similar places because the bullies will be encouraged if they have success.

I know, and I hope to god it doesn’t come to anyone getting hurt. There’s just so much stupid around here and our local news is not really helping much. Honestly this shouldn’t even BE news, churches pop up in GA like dandelions, and it doesn’t make the news unless there’s some sort of property dispute or code violation. I can just picture the yahoos around there in their big trucks getting all riled up and looking for a fight. I hope I’m wrong.

re: #4 A Mom Anon

Yeah I was born & raised in TX, so I know exactly what you mean. That’s a big part of why I moved to the East Coast—I had managed to grow a fairly large chip on my shoulder after years of being pointed and/or sneered at because of my hijab, and I knew that if I stayed I was probably eventually going to end up in some kind of violent altercation with someone. Since I’d prefer not to be in jail (or dead), I left.

I’ve been up here over 15 years now—time flies!—and I love it. If I’d known how much better I’d like it up here, I would have left a long before that.

I live not too far from Kennesaw. Unfortunately, I’m not surprised by the vitriol that was coming out of the people there. I’m very much of the impression that if it had been a group of Jews who wanted to set up a house of prayer there, the reaction would have been the same.

It is certainly only a matter of time until the US right goes all-in on anti-Semitism. Sufficiently extreme right wingers are simply incapable of avoiding this.

re: #6 sffilk

Yes, as EPR pointed out, the right’s antisemitism won’t be far behind. During my reading over the past few months I’ve taken note of how eerily similar the claims made against Muslims are today to the claims made against Jews in the past. In some cases it’s nearly word-for-word exactly the same except “Jew” and “Judaism” are replaced with “Muslim” and “Islam”.

THIS. Antisemitism has never truly gone away it’s just gone underground because, like racism, it’s no longer socially acceptable in polite company.1 Not so with islamophobia because 9/11, ISIS!, etc. (which all Muslims everywhere in the world apparently bear responsibility for).

Seeing that, reading up on antisemitism, and taking note of how the far right has reopened the basement door and let the slobbering, addle-brained racism beastie back out into the open, it truly is just a matter of time.
