Niesamowite jest to miasto:
Hamtramck makes history by becoming the first city in the U.S. to have a Muslim majority on its City Council, as Yemenis and Bangladeshis replace Poles.
Hamtramck residents have elected a Muslim majority to the city’s six-member city council, symbolizing the demographic changes that have transformed the city once known for being a Polish Catholic enclave.
a teraz się dzieje z nawoływaniem muezinów:
… hundreds of Muslims packed the City Council chambers.
They were outraged over a complaint made by council candidate Susan Dunn over the Islamic call to prayer that is broadcast outdoors from mosques, which she said were too loud.
„That pumped up the people,” recalled Ibrahim Al-Jahim … The following week, three Muslim candidates out of six were the top vote-getters, winning council seats.
a/ ironiczne zwłaszcza w kontekście polskiej niechęci do islamu – polscy katolicy są zastępowani muzułmanami
b/ ale zanim polscy katolicy staną liczebną mniejszością (demografia proszę państwa) to żyją w zgodzie:
„In this little town, we manage to work out our differences and to live together,” said Mayor Karen Majewski, who is part of the city’s Polish-American Catholic population.
