NO ISLAM HERE: Armed militia storm town council meeting after right-wing anger over Muslim plan for mosque hits a breaking point

PLANS to build a mosque and Islamic school in a small town in America have been thrown into disarray after a gang of angry citizens stormed a meeting with guns.


Local armed militia in a small US town forced a council meeting to be cancelled following growing security concerns over their presence.

The violent group of right-wing protesters carried guns into a local square to demonstrate against “the presence of Muslims” in the country

The meeting, which was expected to lift a ban on new places of worship, was called off amid growing tensions in Newton County, Georgia.

Five weeks ago a local Muslim group laid out construction plans for an Islamic cemetery, mosque and school – but it was met with anger from a loud minority of the town.

Several members of the so-called right-wing Georgia Security Force III% (GSF) posted a video on the weekend showing them trespass onto the site of the proposed cemetery and mosque school.

One member of the militia climbed a tree to hang an American flag on the property where the mosque would be built.

The group, led by local resident Chris Hill, is now under investigation from Homeland Security and local law enforcement.

Newton County manager Lloyd Kerr said the group were “exhibiting harassing or violent behavior”.

She added: “Unfortunately, in today’s society, uncivil threats or intentions must be taken seriously.”
