Daisy Khan Blames Republicans For Ground Zero Mosque Problems
Flopping Aces ^ | 08-20-10 | Skookum

Posted on 08/20/2010 5:22:39 PM PDT by Starman417

Daisy Khan, wife of Imam Rauf, says there is too much at stake to back down on the Ground Zero Mosque now.

"There is too much at stake, constitutional rights, the development of the Muslims here, how the world is watching the United States. We tell people America upholds religious freedom. We should not compromise those values."

She maintains that the resistance has strengthened the resolve of the mosque supporters, she states that the supporters worry that if they cave on this issue that they may be next. (Whatever the Hell that means) She emphasizes that Americans must realize that not all Muslims are extremists and they must learn to distinguish between extremists and moderate Muslims and not be ruled by Islamaphobia.

Khan said the organizers "will have a dialogue" with the families of 9/11 victims, but added about the mosque site: "It is private property. To walk away without taking everything into consideration would be irresponsible."

Instead of creating enemies, she said, she hopes this controversy will help people better understand Islam. "We are debating about having a healing dialogue, building bridges, and this whole thing has turned into the opposite of what we have envisioned," she said.

Khan said she is completely taken aback by the opposition.

Many people are asking why they are pursuing the project if they only want to build a dialogue with America?

She maintains that partisan strife is causing the conflict and that the Republicans are really going after them. She considers the construction of the Ground Zero Mosque to be a "defining moment" for Islam: hold on babe, isn't it supposed to build a dialogue with Americans and Muslims? I hear warning bells in the background.

“Daisy Khan Blames Republicans For Ground Zero Mosque Problems”

I don’t suppose muslims being responsible for acts of murder had anything to do with it.

This asinine statement demonstrates that the cultural divide is too great to be spanned. Mind-boggling.

Why not nationalize their assets? Diplomacy=appeasement, and that doesn’t work well for us. Perhaps not realistic, but so much fun to think about (giggle).

Daisy Khan is making another form of the "you people are hypocrites" argument ~ a Moslem staple.

What that means is that she thinks you deserve to die ~ Mohammad said "Kill the hypocrites".

I wouldn't turn my back on her, and make sure they check under her skirt before letting her in any building.

She seems to be a hardliner ~ her husband is just her meatpuppet.

if a bunch of Christians got some planes and whacked them into mecca and kill thousands of muslims then would they let us then build a church?

Sorry course not they don’;t even let Christians into mecca

As for this crap of them being a tolerant religion then why are they not tolerant of those who lost loved ones?
Why do they not let non muslims into mosques?
Why do they treat women like dogs?
And for the far left kooks and homosexuals then why would they want to kill you if they are so tolerant.

Since islam was founded by this child molesting cave dwelling caravan leader(all true) there has always been wars and violence with them in it based on their so called religion.

As for religion then I do not look at it as one.
It is an ideology which looks to push their views onto others by talk and then violence.
It looks to bring their laws and change others laws by force if needed.

Over a hundred verses call for death to non muslims and it is high time that these ignorant dumb far left whack jobs learn about this so called religion and then they need to study history.
Hell most of them do not even know it was muslims who tried to take over France , took over Spain by force and look to overthrow the west and our laws.way of life.

No Sir/madam, I am tolerant for women’s rights and if the left/press were they would stop supporting this ideology.

Lebanon, Holland the UK many more places where islam is taking hold and where religious violence and deaths by them are on the rise .

For crying out loud mohammed had sex with a little girl and they worship this guy, WTH

I saw her interviewed a few weeks ago. She was describing the location of the proposed mosque. She said something like this:

Well you know it is a building that was hit by the landing gear of AN airplane. (or maybe of SOME airplane)

Really, Daisy. The landing gears of an airplane? And what airplane did that happen to be, and on what date did this happen?

I couldn’t believe what I was watching.

“”We tell people America upholds religious freedom””

Well, perhaps they ought to tell them the truth. We don’t like, we actually resent - foreigners, - especially murderous ones - coming to OUR AMERICA and dictating how we should behave. She and her husband are only here because they know how weak this country is and it’s all about political correctness - the better to take advantage of us, my dear!!!

When she says “There is too much at stake” she means it, but not in the context of the constitution. At this point, owning the land with the intent of building a Mosque, they now need a dispensation of sorts from the powers that be in Islam to not proceed. That is not likely.

And, under no circumstances can the site be the location of another religion in the future.

Daisy Khan: "We tell people America upholds religious freedom. We should not compromise those values."

The First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . .”

The Constitution does not guarantee that religion can be practiced anywhere. When it comes to siting church buildings, courts have generally upheld the right of municipalities to regulate where churches may or may not locate their facilities. The reasoning has been that facility siting has generally not been found to be fundamental to the “tenet of faith” or a “cardinal principle” of religions but rather is a secular activity. Courts have generally found that, even apart from the siting of religious buildings, zoning laws can be used to regulate religious activities in existing facilities that were built for non-religious purposes. These courts have decided in many cases that zoning ordinances place a minimal burden on the congregations and the ordinances have a reasonable or important governmental interest. This analysis has even been used to satisfy the Shebert compelling interest test and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) requirements.

Zoning laws have also been used to compel churches to maintain structures that have been designated for historic preservation and to prohibit established churches from traditional roles such as feeding the poor or providing shelter for the homeless. Courts have generally discounted the burden that zoning ordinances have on religious congregations which has allowed most zoning ordinances to stand.

The exceptions tend to be grouped where there appears to be some discrimination towards a particular group or an equal protection question. With regards to house meetings in residential areas, exceptions are also found for vagueness of the zoning law in some cases. However, in other cases, the courts have found the zoning ordinances to be valid and the burden on the house meeting to be minimal. This is due to the availability of alternative venues even though they are not in one’s own home.

For instance, the Arizona town of Gilbert, under its zoning code, prohibits churches within its borders from having any home meetings of any size, including Bible studies, three-person church leadership meetings, and potluck dinners. This ban is defended based upon traffic, parking, and building safety concerns.

I think a prohibition forbidding the building of any religious structure near the 9/11 devastation area would be a reasonable solution. This prohibition should be based upon preventing any religion from capitalizing on this sensitive area.
