    Not sure why any muslim would every want to be in Texas or stay for a eternity but thats beside the point. So how will the evil muslims take over if jade helm is taking over? so may groups want to take over Texas they are going to have to stand in line.

    I live in Dallas and this is the first I'm hearing of it, but it does beg the question: why would they need a Muslim cemetery in the first place? I've never heard of a cemetery being specific to one religion.

    er.... its not uncommon to have cemetery's for different religions.

    Infant the first thing that came up when I googled was a big one in virgina (Muslim Cemetery).

    Why anyone would thing they'd want to train extremists in a cemetery..... I have no idea, its hardly the setting to encourage people to dedicate themselves to a suicide mission is it?

    My understanding is that many cemeteries are established based on faith, especially those associated with specific churches.

    Can you imagine the outrage if a Christian cemetery was being protested?

    Jews should share their cemeteries with Muslims. They both have an irrational fear of pork. :p

    Some Christians can be angered over about anything. I remember them protesting a Buddhist temple bell at a convention center

    Reminds me of a story I read over the weekend that Jews and Muslims have raised a ton of money for burned out black churches in the south. Where are the Christians?

    It's not newsworthy to report on Christians helping other Christians. Having a headline saying, "Muslim Groups Raise Money for Christian Churches" is going to generate a lot more clicks. I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.

    Still, since you asked, I used a quick bit of Google-Fu for you:

    is the cemetery for the local community or is it being created to import the dead? If it's for the local community I would say sure, if it's so that surrounding larger cities have somewhere to go then I'd be a bit meh on inviting the religion in if it didn't already have a local gathering.

    Probably fear of a zombie plague Night of the Sharia Dead. Also, too, clearly Jade Helm failed.
