Houston Chosen For First Ismaili Center In United States

Houston will soon be home to the first Ismaili Center in the United States.

There are six other centers around the world — in London, Vancouver, Toronto, Lisbon, Dubai and Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

The center will be located on the corner of Allen Parkway and Montrose Boulevard. The Ismaili Center will also house a Jamatkhana, which is a “place for spiritual contemplation and prayers for the Ismailis.”

Ismaili Muslims are a part of a culturally diverse community occupying more than 25 countries. According to a news release, they “express their values through betterment of self and society, search for knowledge, embracing pluralism, building peace and working to build and improve communities.”

The Ismailis estimate there are 20 million individuals in its community, making it the second-largest in the Shiite branch of Islam.

“The Ismaili Center will be a place where Houstonians of all backgrounds, faiths, and walks of life will find engaging, thoughtful, and compassionate programs, and people. That will be in keeping with Ismaili values and the values of the Ismaili leader, the Aga Khan, who last visited Houston in March 2018,” Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said. “It’s fitting that the Center will be designed by a world renowned architect who has lived, studied and worked around the world, and that the green space will be designed by a landscape architect who has already worked on a major Houston park. This is a milestone for our city.”

Farshid Moussavi will be the architect for the center.

The Ismailis have a 1,400-year history that traces succession from Ali, the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad.

Currently, the Aga Khan is the 49th hereditary imam of the global Ismaili Muslim community.

Ismaili Centers are architecturally unique and each building includes space for “gatherings, intellectual engagement and reflection, as well as spiritual contemplation.”

“A central purpose of the Ismaili Centers is to encourage mutual exchanges and understanding between diverse peoples, communities and faiths. The Centers are, therefore, not only places for spiritual search, but also spaces for broadening intellectual horizons and fostering an appreciation of pluralism,” a news release said.

There is an Ismaili Jamatkhana in Sugar Land, which hosts more than 50 outreach programs for the Houston community.

Houston Residents Being Sprayed with Deadly Neurotoxins

Red Alert: HOUSTON OFFICIALS WARN LOCAL RESIDENTS TO USE GAS MASKS AS C-130 GUNSHIPS RAIN DOWN TOXIC SPRAY IN FIGHT AGAINST MOSQUITOS. THE PROBLEM IS, WHAT IF A RESIDENT AND THEIR FAMILY CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY GAS MASKS? WILL THE SAME BE DONE TO PEOPLE IN FLORIDA?


A serious situation is developing in Houston as people operating with orders from an unknown source, are spraying a  highly toxic substance, banned in several countries, on the people of of Houston.

The authorities are telling the people to don gas masks? Really? What if a family cannot afford gas masks? Also, Houston citizens need to be asking an important question: “Are there millions of gas masks available for purchase in Houston?”  Further, if there is no other choice. why aren’t the federal relief funds being used to purchase gas masks for the citizens? And how would these gas masks be distributed?

I have handled and worn gas masks before they are difficult to put on and they are even more difficult to remove. What about the elderly or the infirm? What are they to do? What about the children, or infants, what is going to protect them? The spraying of these residents is the best example of depraved indifference that I have ever witnessed.

A Slow Burn Genocide

In short America, this is a slow burn genocide for the people of Houston. Now whether this genocide is intentional or an unavoidable tragedy, one can debate the circumstances surrounding this human holocaust. However, there is one unavoidable factor that cannot be debated. The mosquitoes which are being sprayed, will not bite and infect all Houston residents, not even close.

CONVERSELY, EVERY HOUSTON RESIDENT WILL BE EXPOSED TO THIS BANNED NEUROTOXIN WHICH IS PROVEN TO CAUSE CANCER AND A WHOLE HOST OF COGNITIVE AND PHYSICAL PROBLEMS.

Which is worse, to get sprayed and have a 100% chance of being exposed to life threatening toxins or to do nothing and have a small chance of being bitten by a mosquito, that may or may not be infected with maladies? I would take my chances on being exposed to the mosquitos. 

“Naled” to the Wall

The neurotoxin that the Air Force is using is called naled, which is in the organophosphate category of insecticides, and the EU banned Naled in 2012 out of concern for ITS EXTREME TOXICITY: “The scenarios evaluated in the human health risk assessment as well as in the environmental risk assessment showed a potential and unacceptable risk,” wrote the European Commission iin its ruling.

American health officials disagree. Both the Centers for Disease Control and the US Environmental Protection Agency stand behind naled, stating the small amount of the insecticide sprayed from planes doesn’t expose people enough to pose a health concern. Please allow me to don my Common Sense hat. Watch the following and ask yourself if this looks like a small amount of neurotoxin being sprayed upon the residents of Houston, to you?

What does your Common Sense tell you? Does this look like a small amount or are you, like myself, beginning to have doubts about the “story” the Air Force and the EPA are telling the news media?

Additionally, the Air Force stated, in a press release, saying the insecticide will be used in volumes the EPA considers safe. Bravo Sierra! Isn’t that what the soldiers were told who were exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam, or Corexit in the Gulf following the Gulf oil spill? Who do they think they are kidding?

The neurotoxin, in question, caused the Governor of Puerto Rico to call out the army and prevent its distribution in a similar situation. Texas Governor Abbott needs to do the same thing for his people and the mayor of Houston needs to be driven from office for gross negligence and depraved indifference.

Texas Governor Abbott is a good man. He needs to step up and do what the Governor of Puerto Rico did to protect his people from the insane Deep State and I would bet my bottom dollar that this is where this is coming from.

Meanwhile, my advice to the good people of Houston is to leave the area, at least for the short-term.
