The Associated Press website reports today (May 10, 2011) that Muslim leaders are upset that a homeowner -- who lives next door to a newly opened mosque -- has posted a sign on his front lawn that reads "Bomb Making Next Driveway."
Michael Heick lives along a heavily traveled road in Amherst, New York -- a Buffalo suburb. The next driveway is the entrance to the Jaffarya Center.
Heick said that he put up the sign last weekend, because he was frustrated with how the mosque and town officials handled his complaints that the mosque was built too close to his property and that its bright lights violate town code.
Mubarak Abidi, mosque president, said he called Amherst police over the weekend about the sign, and was told that its posting was not illegal.
