Houston Has a Bigger Problem than HERO, Bathrooms

On November 3, 2015 Houstonians will vote to repeal a city council ordinance, HERO. While outgoing Mayor Annise Parker continues to fixate on public bathrooms, she and the rest of Houston’s leaders ignore and jeopardize the safety of their residents.

Houston is facing enormous multiple crises.

Houston is the third largest hub for human trafficking in the U.S. According to the FBI the largest number of reported trafficked children is enslaved in Houston.

Houston is the fourth largest city in America that serves as a primary arrival and distribution center for illicit drug smuggling. The billion dollar trade of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, oxycodone and methamphetamine has profoundly increased Houston’s violent crime rate, which for years has more than doubled the national average.

Yet Annise Parker is obsessed with bathrooms.

Within this trafficking network exists a steady infiltration of Islamists, funded and supported by IRS-sanctioned non-profit “religious” organizations such as CAIR, the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, the Al Maghrib Institute,the Muslim Brotherhood, Muslims of America’s (MOA), the Muslim Model Community of Texas, First Muslims of Texas, and others. Islamists are funneled to MOA’s Dawah Center in Houston, a “worship” or “outreach” center that teaches, networks, and relocates Islamists to other parts of Texas and the country.

MOA, a FBI-classified terrorist organization, is led by Pakistani Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. It has established at least 35 known Jamaat ul-Fuqra jihadi training camps operating in at least 17 states. One of which is Mahmoudberg, located in Brazoria County just sixty miles south of Houston.

Jamaat ul-Fuqra camps train followers to learn how to use weapons (illegal, un-registered, un-licensed AK-47 rifles, rocket launchers, machine guns, and C4 explosives), how to kidnap and kill Americans, and how to conduct sabotage and subversive operations.

Yet Annise Parker is fixated on bathrooms.

Houston also boasts the first and largest terrorist-backed charter school network in America founded byIslamist Fethullah Gulen. According to recent data, nine Harmony Schools cost taxpayers $150 million per year to teach tens of thousands of children the virtues of taqiyya and the necessity for a worldwide Caliphate.

No Imam’s sermons have been subpoenaed from Houston’s 40-plus mosques and 100-plus Islamic centers. Yet, tenth-grade reading material distributed by Houston’s Al-Farouq Mosque illustrates that Islam’s goal isn’t co-existence with non-Muslims. The readings states, among other things, that if a Muslim

“thinks it is permissible to be under their [infidel’s] control, and he is pleased with the way they are, then there is no doubt that he is no longer a Muslim.”

Al-Farouq Mosque also distributes “To Be a Muslim,” published by Saudi Arabia’s International Islamic Publishing House, which claims:

“[we] will pursue this evil force [modernist civilization] to its own lands, invade its Western heartland, and struggle to overcome it until all the world shouts by the name of the Prophet and the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal, and there will be no more ‘persecution’ and all religion will be exclusively for Allah…”

Other distributed literature states,

“…it is written Satan and his soldiers have found a home for themselves there… Democracy is in need of someone to save it from itself.”

More important than access to bathrooms, Parker appears to be unaware of Houston Imams teaching that homosexuality is a crime punishable by death.

The Qur’an instructs, “such rocks were designated by your Lord to strike the transgressors” (11:83). Muhammad also said, “Whomever you find doing the act [of homosexuality] then kill both parties” (Surah al-A`râf 7:80-82).

Parker also appears to ignore the reality that Houston Imams condone “honor killings” of daughters and wives by fathers and husbands, as well as divorce by a husband who declares “talaq” in front of an Islamic judge. Many social service agencies in Houston are aware of these occurrences in their communities, explaining they are reported as domestic violence or “cultural” issues.

In Houston, honor killings of lesbians are a reality.

Yet Annise Parker remains fixated on bathrooms.

Houston’s crisis is profound: it’s an epicenter for violent crime, drug and human trafficking, human rights abuses, terrorist training, and even a recent pledge of allegiance to ISIS. No Christian ministers are involved in any of this, but Imams are.

Islam literally means “submission” to Allah; conversion or death. And Jews, women, and gays rank highest on Islamists’ hit list. Yet, instead of deportation, arrests, warrants, or subpoenas—Houston’s Islamic non-profit organizations receive millions of dollars in federal grant and taxpayer money, and permits and licenses from Parker’s office.

Still, Annise Parker remains fixated on bathrooms.
