(Tea Party 247) – The coronavirus pandemic has served as a shadow over the whole country under which many are hiding the spread of some very dangerous ideas.
Socialism and Sharia law.
Across the country, Muslim communities have taken advantage of the fact that they have not been allowed to meet in person to justify the public blaring of Islamic calls to prayer.
Culver City, California is the latest city in the US to allow Islamic calls to prayer, called an “adhan,” to blast five times a day from a loudspeaker.
It begins at 4:30 am, by the way.
Many Culver City residents, however, say that the call to prayer is too loud and have issued formal complaints with the police department.
Mahmood Navi stood on the roof of King Fahad Mosque and used a microphone to belt out the Islamic all to prayer.

The police revoked the permit for amplified noise after several complaints from residents, who are apparently not as progressive as many of California’s residents.
Three days later, the city reinstated the permit should the mosque agree to lower the volume.
Los Angeles Time reported:
Outside the Culver City mosque, some pedestrians stopped in their tracks when they first heard the adhan, seemingly surprised. This was something new, and it was not altogether clear how it would be received — as with many things Muslim in the U.S.
But in Culver City, the call to prayer did not go unchallenged for long.
After four days, on May 18, the city’s police department revoked the amplified noise permit, citing people congregating at the mosque in violation of the county health order, as well as “numerous loud noise complaints from area residents.”
“We have had and will continue to have a great relationship with mosque leadership,” said Capt. Jason Sims with the Culver City Police Department. “We are certainly happy to help with facilitating any type of service that is not in violation of county health orders.”
Three days later, the city changed course again, reinstating the permit on the condition that the mosque lower the volume.
Meanwhile, on the Nextdoor social networking app, debates raged between neighbors.
In Minnesota, a Detroit neighborhood became the first US city in history to issue the call to prayer from an outdoor speaker on the rooftop of Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Cedar-Riverside at the beginning of Ramadan last month.
