Opponents of Proposed Mosque Clash with Islamic Society Organizers

Fears that a mosque would bring religious extremists, and even ties to terrorism, surfaced Tuesday when leaders of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee arrived at an Eagle Forum meeting meant to rally Brookfield residents against the proposal.

After the president and executive director of the society introduced themselves, the meeting at the Brookfield Library turned to debate, focused first on traffic concerns, but soon moving to attacks on the religion of Islam.

“My fear is what is being taught there,” said a woman who did not want to give her name.

“Our God is not your God,” one man said.

“What is it about your religion that draws so much extremism and hatred?” another asked.
