Hamtramck, Michigan is 1st American city to elect Muslim Majority City Council
The reporter and all of the Muslims quoted in this news report herald the diversity of America’s first Muslim majority city council, “the Hamtramck City Council is going to reflect diversity.” What’s diverse about a Muslim majority? Is the anything less diverse and more oppressive than Islamic law? What Muslim countries are diverse? Muslims won’t even let Jews pray at the most holy of Jewish sites. Muslim countries under the sharia subjugate their religious minorities.
This is not unexpected. I describe the islamization process in my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.
Can you say Tower Hamlets?
“Hamtramck is 1st American city to elect majority Muslim council,”
By Will Jones, Local 4 Reporter, Click on Detroit, November 4, 2015
4 of 6 Hamtramck City Council members are Muslim
HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – The Polish flocked to Hamtramck in the 1900s and evidence of the city’s Polish roots remain.
However, over the last few decades a new wave of immigrants, primarily from the Middle East, South Asia and Southeastern Europe, has dramatically changed the face and culture of this community.
Now, the Hamtramck City Council is going to reflect that diversity.
“We are very proud and we are very happy for that achievement, what we have done in this city, for our city,” said Jamal Alturki, a voter.
Voters gave Abu Musa and Anam Miah another term in office. Saad Almasmari was elected for the first time. Now four of the six City Council members will be of Muslim faith.
It’s said to be the first majority Muslim City Council not only in Hamtramck but in the entire country.
“I think that sends a message not only to Hamtramck but throughout the region that people want their representation in offices,” Miah said.
Although there will be more diversity at the table, they want to make clear the goal of public service stays the the same.
“My concern is to give the people, everybody, equal opportunity and be fair for everybody,” said Musa.
“We are going to represent everybody. We are going to serve everybody, Christians, Jewish, Muslims, everybody,” said Almasmari.
