74% More Mosques in America Since September 11

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Do you know how bad Islamophobia has gotten in America since September 11? It’s so bad that the Muslim population has doubled and that there are 74 percent more mosques than there were then.

While the Muslim population has only doubled, the number of mosques has increased by 74 percent suggesting that mosque growth is occurring at a higher rate than natural and unnatural population growth. More mosques are being built than are necessary for the actual Muslim population in the United States.

The Ground Zero Mosque is a good example, meant for thousands of worshipers in a non-residential area of office buildings where only a few thousand people lived, almost none of them Muslim, was being built for show. A footprint on the neck of the Great Satan.

Much of the mosque building is not truly meant to accommodate the needs of an existing Muslim population, but is a conquering infrastructure being financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar as a means of gaining influence and intimidating Western leaders with the threat of a growing domestic Muslim population.

    "While the Muslim population has only doubled, the number of mosques has increased by 74 percent suggesting that mosque growth is occurring at a higher rate than natural and unnatural population growth. More mosques are being built than are necessary for the actual Muslim population in the United States."
    Daniel, doubling is a 100% increase, which is more than a 74% increase.
    You linked a May 3, 2012 Meghan Neal from the Daily News. It is titled "Number of Muslims in the U.S. doubles since 9/11". Then the article says, "Data released Tuesday from the 2010 U.S. Religion Census shows Islam was the fastest growing religion in America in the last 10 years, with 2.6 million living in the U.S. today, up from 1 million in 2000."
    So, it looks like the actual Muslim population increase was 160%, which is also more than 74%.

      You can nitpick with numbers all day long, but that won't prove anything. The question is: Why is a mega-mosque necessary in a town like Murfreesboro TN? With a population of roughly 100,000 and a very small Muslim community, a 5,000 square foot mosque would suffice. But no, they MUST build a 53,000 square foot mosque! Do you need any more proof that their purpose goes beyond simply worshipping their religion, and leaving others alone?

    Mosque-going becoming steadily trendier since islam murdered thousands, that's totally natural… on planet muhammad.

    First radical islamists kill and bomb, then moderate islamists come with "the shopping list". Kowtow or else Simple and efficient loop. Kill – agenda – kill – agenda – get it?

    Obama lead 50,000 muslim men in a Day of Payer on the Mall in Washington, DC in September 2009.
    (September is the zodiac sign of Virgo, or The Virgin)
    Tipping point of the war was 909/09/09. (Mayan Calendar)
    The Washington Monument is an acupuncture point in the cosmos. (an obelisk)
    The reflecting pool magnifies the prayers and the intent of the prayers,
    thereby"metaphsically"changing the
    future destiny of the United States.
    This occult rite, was an act of "surrender" to Islam AND determines the "Future Destiny" of America.
    They prayed from morning until night and also had tours of the Capitol.
    No more National Day of Prayer or blowing of the shofar.
    New World Order needs a New World Religion.

    The United States is a land of liberty. It is even possible–although not especially likely–that many Muslims in America will realize that they have freedom and that freedom is a good thing provided and protected by a benevolent country with a moral political structure.

      May have had a moral political structure on e upon a time. Not so sure anymore.

      No they won't! They're muslims and they follow the dictates of islam which is to spread sharia (islamic) law by the sword if necessary. If you haven't already noticed in Europe they are pushing to have those countries resemble the the islamic sh*tholes they came from and they won't be happy until they do. What happens in Europe happens in the West 5-15 years later. Our future history is unfolding before our eyes and we still allow the politicians that support this to stay in office…..you're a fool if you think muslims will ever save you from the scourge of islam.

    The problem is not that a mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is too large or one in New York is too close to Ground Zero. The real problem is that too any mosques are allowed to stand in the U.S. Muslims act like enemies, and have always acted like enemies, ever since their pedophiliac false prophet started spewing lies out of his filthy mouth in seventh-century Mecca. Islam is an alien ideology that seeks to rob Americans of our inalienable freedoms. It should be banned by constitutional amendment and its followers expelled from the United States.
