[Thread: Muslims takeover my neighborhood - advice?
If I were in your situation, I would probably move because I would not want myself or my family surrounded by islam, but I can understand why many people would rather stay put and tough it out. For one thing, there are doubtless going to be many opportunities to witness there. There is a growing muslim population in my area too and I see a lot of burkas, but it does not feel overwhelming yet. Though once an area starts approaching 10% of its population being muslim it starts to be a real issue because it attracts more of them and your city becomes a hub for islamic activity. That's what happened with hindus in my area. I moved into my neighborhood about ten years ago, and when some hindu families moved into the neighborhood across the street more and more moved there because they like to stick together. Pretty soon all of the other families moved away because they no longer felt welcome (indians can be surprisingly racist) and now it is almost 100% hindu. Then, last year they built a huge, awful hindu temple nearby because the population had grown enough to support one. With three mosques, that sounds like what might be happening to your area. I'll definitely be praying for you!
