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 a few miles from where two Muslim terrorists linked with ISIS were killed while trying to mass-murder activists at a “Draw Muhammad” free speech event in May, 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.

Muslims do not embalm their dead, washing bodies in warm water instead, The Dallas Morning News reported — embalming is not required by state law.

The association is looking to build the only Muslim cemetery in the county and selected a site in Farmersville, a couple dozen miles from Garland, which was the scene of the deadly attack in May.

But residents turned out in force at a City Council meeting earlier this month to oppose their efforts. The room could not hold all the residents who came to denounce the plan.

“The concern for us is the radical element of Islam,” Pastor David J. Meeks told the Morning News. “They will expand. How can we stop a mosque or madrassa training center from going in there?”

But the town’s mayor understands that’s a First Amendment issue.

Mayor Joe Helmberger said the residents’ concerns were unwarranted and, noting that the U.S. was founded on religious freedom, said the Islamic cemetery is likely to be approved as long as the town’s development standards are met, according to The Associated Press.

Khalil Abdur-Rashid, a spokesman for the Islamic association, saw the concerns as an opportunity for greater understanding about his religion.

“This is an opportunity to have a good interfaith dialogue and inter-community dialogue,” he said.

    If Islam is so great, why not send their bodies home?

    • John Hillman

      They believe the body must be buried quickly. They do not prolong this for any reason.

  • John Hillman

    Embalming started during the Civil War as a method to SLOW the decay of the body so it could be taken to the family.

    It is no longer necessary. Funeral Directors like it because it is a cash cow. Most bodies can be “preserved” just fine for a week to 10 days before being buried.

    Embalming does not prevent the eventual degradation of the body. It just slows the process TEMPORARILY.

    • Justan American

      That is mostly correct embalming began because the practice of having an open casket so people can look at the dead body. No open casket no need to embalm they actually flash freeze the body to keep it from decaying until burial.

    Nothing wrong with the Pigs Blood. They have made it quite clear, whatever they don’t like should be banned. Well, we don’t like them! Suck on that

    • Elizabeth

      they want to ban anything they don’t like. we don’t like them so they should be banned!

    • ozarkat

      Gotta make sure they don’t worm their way into the local politics, city council, school board, etc. Once in, you’ll never be rid of them.

  • Robert Madsen

    The city council is very aware that the community does not want the muslims there, yet they will go ahead and approve the cemetery. What the hell happened to listening to the will of the people? City councils across the country no longer listen to what the people want. They do whatever the hell they want!

    Sounds like a good place to put a hog farm on one side and a BBQ joint on the other. Live music nightly.

  • Kahvi Collier

    While I am in no way a proponent of Islam, I’m a little lost on why not embalming is a threat to water supplies? Working in environmental compliance, it seems that formaldehyde (or whatever aldehyde they currently use), a toxin that isn’t that easy to get rid of, would be much more dangerous to the environment… As far as monuments and memorials for terrorists??–bring on the blood!!

  • Red Five

    The town’s mayor is wrong; it is not a First Amendment issue. The residents don’t want the cemetery, and they are requesting the city government deny the Islamic Association’s request. The First Amendment only applies to Congress.

    Clearly our government no longer acts on what the people want. Ironic since the government is supposed to be of the people and for the (legal) people of America.

    They already have a ‘greater understanding’ about you and your religion, that’s why they don’t want you in their town. Go back where you came from if you don’t like it.

  • Mike Bruffett

    not blood you have to bury the pigs in the land then they can not use it but u have to make it good grave site

  • o well

    they have to bury them somewhere.

    • nonPC

      The landfill perhaps?

  • harriet

    long term plans should be a major concern. Inroads. Sharia law, halal shelves in food pantries and weirdest of all too many crosses in the classrooms of a catholic university. Which came first, the crosses or the Muslims?

  • Had Enough

    EAT MORE PORK !!!!!!!

  • Bill_S

    Bury a pig on the property.

  • martinamerica

    I don’t a problem with Muslims having their own cemetery. Many religions have their own cemetery.
