The mall will be lucky to escape with a sizable payout, free parking to all mosque-goers and the arrest, conviction and beheading of whatever luckless employee threw the signs together on his lunch break.
Signs banning Muslims from using a Houston shopping center parking lot mysteriously appeared this week, generating massive outrage.
The posters, which read “No Muslim parking in the Westview Shopping Center,” were seen in recent days outside the mall, which sits across the street from a mosque, a local television station reported.
The signs, which also warned violators that their vehicles would be towed, have since been removed, the station reported.
Some speculated that the signs were spawned by large crowds expected at the mosque as the Muslim month-long fast for the holy month of Ramadan came to an end. Several mall employees privately expressed frustration with mosque members occupying parking spots meant for shoppers.
Muslims attending the mosque were nevertheless offended, and nobody has claimed responsibility for the signs, the station reported. Police are investigating.
