Welcome to Lilburn, GeorgiaJune 1, 2010
Or maybe Lilburnistan. Did you think that only Europe is being Islamized?
Lilburn is similar to many cities in America. It has a cozy population of 11,000 in Gwinnett County about 15 miles outside Atlanta… It also has at least four Islamic facilities each with colorful back stories.
The one pictured above, the A.G.A. Dar-E-Abbas Islamic Center, has a history of code violations. Those violations are partly why a Dar-E-Abbas rezoning request was denied by Lilburn in a heated decision last fall.
Then there’s the “Nasfat of Atlanta,” also in Lilburn. They seem to keep their noses cleaner than Dar-E-Abbas, although they promise on their website “to become renowned for quality da’wah,” which is Islamic proselytizing. Nasfat also states that they will “not discriminate”…against Muslims. There are no pledges on their website about discriminating against anybody else.
Next there’s a nonprofit corporation known as the Al-Rasoul Masjid & Center AMC Inc. They’re currently in noncompliance with Georgia corporations laws for not filing necessary paperwork with the Secretary of State. Lovely.
Finally, there’s the “Ali Center,” registered with the state as the Imam Ali (A.S.) Center. The registered agent and CEO of the Ali Center is Kaiser Ali, but the actual owner of the property (according to property records for its address at 695 Beaver Ruin Road) is the Dawat-E-Hadiya of America. That owner, although technically registered in California, is actually the corporate vessel of a foreign-based Shia Muslim sect.
If you ever feel like buying a nice piece of property with foreign funds, committing code violations on the premises, or failing to file required paperwork, just stop by Lilburn sometime. A local imam will be happy to give you pointers.
