I know, but at one time, weren't Dundalk and Sparrows Point  literally  Beth Steel towns?   :)

Dundalk, Essex and Rosedale have a growing Muslim population.  Many are business owners who moved there with their families.  They even expanded the mosque on Pulaski Highway.  Greektown today has more Hispanic businesses than anything else.

Yeah, pretty much....the port and chevrolet were big employers as well....only the port remains.

I rag on dundalk but there are some nice areas that don't look like an air strike just hit-not many but some.;)

If I had a couple of billion to invest I'd buy up as much of highlandtown as I could-it will likely be the next fed hill/canton.

I haven't seen this brought up yet, however it occurs to me that as restricted community along these lines smacks of the Aryan Nations, Montana Militia, The Arm and Sword of God as well as that That weird polygamous "Mormon" outfit as well as a few more on the record. 

Well I pondered bringing it up what you mention. And what you mention and what the Muslim group wants to do are pretty much one in the same. And we all know how what you mentioned has worked out.

However, in the Muslim case there is always the prevelant 'ohhhh but that is different' factor. :huh::rolleyes:

I think that the court of public opinion on it being more receptive.....is a bit different than that of the other groups mentioned.

If you strip down the nasty bits....isn't the bottom line that these negative groups want 'their own safe world' much like what this Muslim group is proposing? What I am saying is purely analytical.

Again....just my perception.

Imagine a bunch of White Bible Thumpers trying to do this. The NAACP and ACLU would have been on this like flys on a turd

Or like FBI or NSA would be on an all muslim development!

How is that even close to legal?

It's not and it'll likely be challenged in court.

If they want to live in their own community I am OK with that. IE- Little Italy, Greektown, over 55 communities. 

What's different? I thought anybody can live anywhere they want. What's the big deal?

Correct. However.....one can not be prevented from living anywhere they want by rules like 'we sell only to Muslims.'

Or have you missed all of HSTs bulletins about red lining etc. Or the stink about conventant contracts as of late....even if they are in fine print and NEVER enforced.

Origional post.... quote............ An auxiliary men’s organization of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community posted information on its website about the development, calling it a “peace village” and saying the builder “will only sell these houses” to Ahmadi Muslims.

I've had Chicken Rico.  It's really good.  I like the veggies as the side.
