to report that there's a nice view to be had of the crescent-topped mosque dome silhouetted against the distant skyline, but not high enough to tell you what it would be like if you were the muezzin who had to go up there five times a day to chant the call to prayer. Of course, the muezzin can't tell you either -- he's no fool -- they're going to broadcast the prayer summons (which will only happen during the day out of respect for the neighbors) by loudspeaker. --Michael Paulson
That they're going to broadcast the call to prayer at all, despite previous assurances that they wouldn't, according to Solomon, is a supremacist statement. For in the modern world, with cell phones and phone alarms and clocks everywhere and all sorts of related amenities, there is no need whatsoever for an amplified call to prayer. It is simply an assertion of Islamic dominance over the area. - Spencer

At least winter's coming, so daylight hours are limited.
“Chicago mosque run by Imam Jeremiah Wright will broadcast call to vote over loudspeaker”
You can tell a lot about a people by their music!!
Will someone with an axe do?
I guess some Catholic Church needs to ALSO start ringing their bells at 6am and 10pm and using a microphone to amplify the sound.
Up your way, Michael!
Mayor Menino had the city just about give this land away at 5% of market value to the muslims.
My dog pees on things to mark his territory...Somehow I find that less disgusting than this.
call in the patriot guard riders maybe?
i bet a couple hundred harleys would drown that out pretty quick.
hey envisio! check it out, i finally found a use for a bunch of harleys. :)
The Saudis are funding Islamic imperialism missionaries. There is no cultural “exchange”, Saudi Arabia permits no religious freedom.
That would violate the city sound ordinance. All kidding aside, the difference between bells and the Muslim call to prayer is prosletizing. The bells just ring tones. The call actually says “there is no god but Allah”
you should come to brooklyn during ramadan. very loud speakers. very often. i am surprised no one has taken it upon themselves to let one go into the speaker. they would be charged with a hate crime.
St. Ambrose, down the street rings the bells at 6 AM, 6:25 AM, 6:30 AM, in the evening at 6 and whenever Mass is going to start.
I love it! Somehow, I don’t think I would like this as much...
Disgusting that the city where the Liberty Tree sprouted is allowing fascism to flourish in their midst.
Anyone have a rocket powered grenade launcher handy? If there’s a nuisance - eliminate it.
The bells are also accoustic, this is amplified sound. And it falls outside of most cities’ hours for loud noises.
It’s significant that what should normally have caused a scandal investigation brouhaha if done for any other group barely created a ripple.
That was one hell of a deal the masjid got, especially considering earlier talk had been of retail or even residential complexes to alleviate many needs around that area.
It’s adjacent to Roxbury and the South End, one mainly AfroAmerican, the other urban mixed.
Kerry’s pad is in BackBay, a long way off.
