Paterson, NJ, Gets Muslim Police Chief and Islamic Call to Prayer Over Loudspeakers

What's next, Sharia Law?
[PJMedia.com] The next Democratic debate isn't in Paterson, New Jersey, but it should be: that unlikely city is blazing new trails in multiculturalism and diversity. On Wednesday, the City Council voted unanimously (with two members not voting) to grant preliminary approval to the Islamic call to prayer being broadcast over loudspeakers in the city. This followed the swearing-in earlier this month, on the Qur'an, of course, of Paterson's new police chief, Ibrahim "Mike" Baycora, the first Muslim police chief in an American city.

Celebrate diversity, right? Sure. The problem is that it is by no means certain that this diversity will celebrate us. The Paterson noise ordinance says: "The city shall permit 'Adhan', call to prayer', 'church bells' and other reasonable means of announcing religious meetings to be amplified between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. for duration not to exceed five minutes."
So the Islamic call to prayer is just like church bells. Sure, and informed, devout Muslims are just Methodists with hats and beards. Reality, however, is not so rosy. The Islamic call to prayer, now to be sounded three times a day in Paterson, New Jersey (there are five daily prayers, but two of them fall outside the 6AM-10PM parameters of the ordinance), declares:
"Allah is greater (allahu akbar, four times)
I testify that there is no 'God' but allah (ashhadu anna la ila ill allah) (twice)
I testify that Mohammed is allah's prophet (ashhadu anna muhammadan rasul allah) (twice)
Come to prayer (hayya alas salah, twice)
Come to success (hayya alal falah, twice)
Allah is greater (allahu akbar) (twice)
There is no 'God' but allah (la ilah ill allah) (once)"
Besides being screamed out by Islamic jihad terrorists all over the world (9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta said it "strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers"), "allahu akbar" is a clear demonstration of supremacism. It is often mistranslated in the Western media as "God is great," but its actual meaning is "allah is greater," meaning allah Is Greater Than Your God or Government. It is an aggressive declaration that allah and Islam are dominant over every other form of government, religion, law, or ethic, which is why Islamic jihadists in the midst of killing infidels so often shout it...
