Ground Zero Mosque
Investors.com ^ | May 17, 2010 | Investors Business Daily staff

Posted on 05/17/2010 5:20:41 PM PDT by Kaslin

Political Correctness: While New York City OKs construction of a "monster mosque" at ground zero, the feds pay rent to a D.C. mosque tied to the Pentagon attack. Have we gone totally soft?

Imagine on the 10th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, we let the Japanese erect a cultural center at the site of that attack. Exactly. It would never happen.

So why are Manhattan officials bowing to demands by a group called the American Society for Muslim Advancement to open — on of all days, Sept. 11, 2011 — a 13-story shrine to Islam in the shadow of the beautiful skyscrapers terrorists turned to ashes in the name of Islam? Why aren't they suggesting they do their Islamic "advancement" someplace else? Why of all places there?

Aren't officials at least curious why these supposedly "patriotic" Muslim activists named their planned $100 million mosque after the Great Mosque of Cordoba — a legacy of Muslim Spain representing the zenith of Islamic dominance?

There may be nothing to it — except that a radical Islamic school in Virginia, raided by the feds after 9/11, also goes by that name. Cordoba University's founder was recently named an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror case. Symbolism is not lost on such jihadists.

New Yorkers should by now have built from that giant hole at ground zero a single, mammoth tower as a one-finger salute to radical Islam and all the terrorists it inspires. Instead, they're building an Islamic tower that Muslim fanatics from around the world will no doubt use as a memorial to their fallen "martyrs" and what they did to us on that "blessed day" of 9/11.

"It's a slap in our face!" said Nelly Braginsky, whose son Alexander was murdered on 9/11.

If the Muslims own the land they have property rights and no matter what, they have First Amendment rights.

there is more than one mosque per Creeping Sharia Note the faithful pouring out onto Manhattan's sidewalks for prayers and consider how this resembles regular events stifling commerce in France with it's growing number of no-go-zones [Zones Urbaines Sensibles (ZUS)]. This is the tolerance and understanding of Islam being foisted on a freakishly gullible society.

I am convinced that the bulk of what we call the 'Western world' would rather see themselves destroyed, or commit suicide -- than to be accused of being a 'racist'. Whether its protecting one's borders, or engaging in statistical profiling techniques, or just declaring that there are some aspects of cultural diversity that we just don't want to 'celebrate' (e.g., 'female circumcision'; degradation of women; face coverings when taking a Driver's license picture; ... oh heck, almost anything islam) - the Western world would rather acquiesce than be labeled with the dreaded 'R' word...

I know a man who worked at the trade center and on the day the Moslems flew planes full of people into the towers, when the People hit the ground a red puffy mist went into the air and it sounded like watermelons were hitting the ground.

It took 410 days to build the Empire State Building in 1931.

And we still have a hole at Ground Zero.

That’s the real disgrace here.

I am not clear on seperation of church and state laws in regards to taxpayer money being used to pay rent to a building owned by a mosque?
So, a baptist, methodist, etc church that owned a building could rent it to the govt?

What happened to separation of church and state when taxpayers money is involved? isn’t the mosque a religious facility? yet, the govt is paying the mosque money to rent a building for the Census Bureau? so, other churches in our country can become landlords to the govt?

You nailed it. Or worse, being painted with the broad brush a “Nazi” or fascist.

IIRC, tax dollars are not an issue - - YET. What I find interesting is the defensive argument of property /first amendment rights as an unassailable shield thrust against the opposition to these mosques on/near ground zero footprints. 1. the Cordoba initiative is planned for a bldg which was damaged by plane fueslage and debris from WTC towers on 9/11 so it is as much part of ground zero as the twin towers. 2. There isn't sufficient funding for the Cordoba Mosque Short on Allah dollars Why would NYC grant permits for an unfunded project?

WRONG. The UN is paying for part of this abomination! US tax dollars pay their way in NYC--something fishy is going on, and NYC better figure it out FAST.

Spitting in the Face of Everyone Murdered on 9/11 (UN pays for mega-mosque 600ft from Ground Zero!)

SIOA Rally Calls for Halt to Plans for Ground Zero Mosque Forbes.com

NEW YORK, May 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The human rights group SIOA is hosting a rally at Ground Zero to protest the construction of a mosque at the site of the Islamic terror attack that brought down the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. SIOA is one of America’s foremost organizations defending human rights, religious liberty, and the freedom of speech against Islamic supremacist intimidation and attempts to bring elements of Sharia to the United States.

Join SIOA’s Facebook page here. http://www.SIOAfacebook.com

Victims of 9/11 - those who lost family or friends, or who were injured on that day - are especially invited to attend the rally.

The SIOA No 9/11 Mosque Rally will be at Ground Zero on June 6 at 12 noon. Supporting groups (partial list): ACT for America (ACT Manhattan chapter); Z Street; Freedom Defense Initiative; No Mosque at Ground Zero; Faith Freedom International; Stuart Kaufman; American Bulldogs; VAST; and the Center for Security Policy.

SIOA executive director Pamela Geller commented: “What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent, American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in eye of America.”

“We chose June 6 as the rally date,” Geller explained, “because it’s D-Day. In 1944, Americans acted against the evil of Nazism. Now it is time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.”

Said Geller: “The only Muslim center that should be built in the shadow of the World Trade Center is one that is devoted to expunging the Koran and all Islamic teachings of the violent jihad that they prescribe, as well as all hateful texts and incitement to violence.”

Speakers at the No 9/11 Mosque will include Nonie Darwish, ex-Muslim and author of Now They Call Me Infidel; Simon Deng, the Sudanese ex-slave and campaigner for human rights for Sudanese Christians; James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force; and Anders Gravers of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE). Hosting the event are Geller, the popular blogger and columnist who publishes the acclaimed AtlasShrugs.com blog, and SIOA associate director Robert Spencer, the bestselling author and director of JihadWatch.org. Geller is the author (with Spencer) of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (Foreword by Ambassador John Bolton), coming July 27 from Simon & Schuster.

As a manifestation of Islamic domination and expansionism, mosques have frequently been placed on the sites of the holy places of other religions. The Al-Aqsa Mosque, built on top of the Temple of the Jewish people, which is located in Jerusalem, is the most famous example. Many famous churches have been turned into mosques, including the Aya Sofya Mosque in Istanbul, which until the Islamic conquest of Constantinople of 1453 was the grandest church in Christendom. The Umayyad Mosque in Damascus was, before the Islamic conquest, the Church of St. John the Baptist. Historian Sita Ram Goel has estimated that over two thousand mosques in India were built on the sites of Hindu temples.

Rally speakers and participants will stand with those who lost loved ones on 9/11, and call for an end to plans for this mosque that insults the memory of those who died on that day.

Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has blamed the West, rather than Islamic jihadists, for terrorism on several occasions. He has said, according to Australia’s Sun-Herald, that “the U.S. and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end.” On another occasion he said that “Western active involvement in shaping the internal affairs of Islamic societies have contributed to the creation of terrorism done in the name of Islam.”

Abdul Rauf has also called Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’ endorsement of the implementation of Sharia courts in Britain “forward thinking” - despite Sharia’s denial of basic freedoms including the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights of all people before the law.

We are in a fight-to-the-death war with militant Islam.

You DON'T present the enemy with things, especially big things like a big building adjacent to the site where 3000 humans were murdered by Islamic radicals, that they can use as SYMBOLS to assert to the Islamic world that the West is weak and cannot even defend its, yes, hallowed ground from Islamic intrusion.

To the Islamic radicals, this is a sign from Allah that their path of murder and mayhem is the correct one.

This is eminently outrageous. There are many, many, many other places and buildings in other areas of NYC that would serve as a mosque. But IT IS THE SYMBOLISM OF THE SUCCESSFUL, MILITANT ISLAM THAT IS BEING SOUGHT HERE.

The First Amendment is nothing to Islamic radicals but a joke and a tool to destroy the “degenerate West who put so much store by it.”

Try for once using YOUR First Amendment rights to pay tribute to the 9/11 slain and prevent this evil from occurring instead of using it as an excuse to not do anything.

This is a huge slap in the face for all Americans and all nationalities who both saw and who will always feel in their hearts, the horrible death of those 3000 on 9/11.

That is a sobering, sad, and unfortunately truthful statement. For some unbelieveable reason, the West (U.S., Canada & western Europe) have a suicidal death wish that propels them to pander, appease & capitulate even more. We gotta blow these pandering weenies away before our countries are totally overrun by uzzlims.

Let's see if I understand you.

If the Wahhabis used a vast flux of oil money to acquire the World Trade Center site itself and used the property to put up a victory monument, the Righteous Slapping of Amerika the Whore Monument let's call it, complete with glass-and-steel airplanes crashing into glass-and-steel towers, and representations of kaffir New Yorkers diving out 104th-floor windows with their clothes on fire, and the bases of the towers tastefully decorated in "red mist" and verses from the Koran describing in loving detail the eternal torments in Hell of the Unbelievers, which began even before they hit the pavement .......

...You'd say that was covered under the First Amendment, and that we should all just shut up about it, and take it?

That your answer?
