Dozens of Houston Area Mosques are 24/7 Shelters without being Asked

ShiaWaves | (Video News Report) | – –

“Houston’s Muslim community is at the forefront of helping those affected by Tropical Storm Harvey, which has flooded much of the fourth most populous city in the United States. Dozens of mosques have either opened their doors for shelter, aided in rescue operations or provided goods, such as food, blankets and bottled water for those in need. “In the whole Greater Houston area, people are helping people; neighbors are helping neighbors and we are trying everything we can to help people,” said MJ Khan, the president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston. The Islamic Society of Greater Houston represents 21 Islamic centers in the area. Khan said all types of evacuees, including a number of families, have come to find shelter at the places of worship. “Our volunteers there got together with the first responders to rescue people. Since 9/11 was inundated and were only dealing with life threatening situations, our volunteers knew where people were stranded, boated into their homes and brought them to the mosque”, Khan told Middle East Eye.”

  1. You just watch! This is the first step toward imposing shari’a law in Texas.

    Seriously, compare that punk con-man Osteen.

  2. Texas media is too busy engaging in self-congratulation of how many Texans used their private resources to help victims. This is posed in the same tone as American Exceptionalism. Texas’ mainstream always puts out the obnoxious subtext that they’re better than other Americans, with the implication that they’ve done better keeping Whites, males and Christians on top and others in their place, which somehow thus causes the greater charity and “can-do spirit. Thus any aid by Texan Moslems does not fit the narrative and drops into the memory hole.
