In Irving, Texas, that effort isn't working.
Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims. Consequently, the City Council voted Thursday to endorse a state bill that Muslims say targets their faith.
The Dallas News accused the mayor of being "a hero among a fringe movement that believes Muslims — a tiny fraction of the U.S. population — are plotting to take over American culture and courts."
"Muslims in hijabs, burqas and business suits packed City Hall on Thursday, voicing protests," the report said, lending credence to the fringe of the U.S. population.
The council endorsed the bill in a 5-4 vote.
Supporters of the law accuse the mayor of bigotry and hatred; strange for a religion that lops heads, administers lashes, and tosses homosexuals off tall buildings.
“This bill does not reference Shariah, Islam or even religion. It has nothing to do with preventing any tribunal,” Van Duyne said.
• In 1630 there were only 4,646 European colonists on the American continent — a tiny fraction of the population. A fringe movement of natives believed the Europeans were plotting to take over their culture.
Islam is the world's largest hate group.
