Staten Island, N.Y. -- The Muslin American Society, in the name of the Muslim community, has issued a response to the bid by the Rev. Keith Fennessy of St. Margaret Mary R.C. Church, Midland Beach, to undo the sale of the parish's vacant convent to the MAS, which would build a mosque at the site.
The MAS response is dated today and bears a Washington dateline.
The text reads as follows:
In reference to Rev. Keith Fennessy's letter withdrawing his support for the mosque purchase sale in Staten Island, N.Y., we feel strongly that much of what is taking place now is being driven by fear and hysteria, with some of it being stirred up by professional groups that have a history of being prejudiced against Muslims. We are American citizens and we love our country. We do not operate as an extension of any non-American religious or political organization. What have we done wrong to cause anyone to deny us the right to build a house of worship?
Nevertheless, we believe in the good will of the Catholic community leaders, and that ultimately they will do the right thing and allow this sale to be completed. We know that the Catholic community in the past has endured some of the same prejudice and fear mongering that we, as Muslims, are now facing. What should we tell our children? That as Muslims we are second class citizens without religious and civil rights? Or that the 1st and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution become void merely because you are an American Muslim?

The Catholic community better not sale that convent!
“Thanks to your democratic laws we will invade you; thanks to our religious laws we will dominate you.”
Fine. Just denounce jihad and the Muslim Brotherhood. No biggie, right?
TO THE INFIDELS OF THE WEST:
The Constitution for the new Islamic Republics of EuroArabia and AmerIslamia is under construction.
WE WILL FIGHT THE INFIDEL TO DEATH
-Meanwhile American laws will protect us.
-Democrats and Leftist will support us.-N.G.O.s will legitimize us.
-C.A.I.R. will incubate us.
-The A.C.L.U. will empower us.-Western Universities will educate us.
-Mosques will shelter us.
-Hollywood will love us.
- Most of the United Nations will cover our asses.
Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.
We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.
tell your children to read the US Constitution...
No, you don't, you f***ing muzzie. You want to destroy this country. STFU and ESAD!
Here is a letter to the editor I wrote, after our community sucessfully ran off a bunch of Muslims who wanted to build the Southeast Islamic Center about 2 miles from my house. We had a big city fight but the people prevailed and the permit to build was not granted to the Muslims.
The editor of the paper was lamenting for the “displaced” muslims that they wouldn’t be able to have a short drive to their worship center as she and her children enjoy this close proximity to their church.
I address this point to open my comments.

Susan, I’ve been looking for an appropriate time to publically say how much I LOVE this online newspaper. As a 30 year resident of Brentwood I appreciate this paper’s accessiblity but that is not why I am writing. After reading your column on the Islamic Center, it struck me how naive Americans really are and how others take advantage of our goodness.
What you did was equate your religious experience with a Muslim family’s religious experience. That is a definite apples and oranges comparison. Before anyone can make a
valid asessment of Islam,it is imperative that you have a complete working knowledge of Islam and Sharia Law. Without that you are at best naive and at worst dangerous. Our Brentwood community was about to become the largest Southeastern Islamic Center. Did you look into the Dearborn, Michigan situation where the Muslims made Dearborn the largest Islamic Center in the North? Dearborn Michigan is no longer recognizable as an American city that it once was. Did you want that for Brentwood? If everyone would just read what Sharia Law is, you would run from this “religion” and not want your children to be exposed to such an anti American, anti Constitutional system of religious government that all Muslims live under. It is very discrimnatory and non tolerant. I will post a few of the Sharia Law precepts and then ask yourself, Do you really want your children to be exposed to a people who embrace these laws?
Under Sharia law:
· There is no freedom of religion
· There is no freedom of speech
· There is no freedom of thought
· There is no freedom of artistic expression
· There is no freedom of the press
· There is no equality of peoples-a non-Muslim, a Kafir, is never equal to a Muslim
· There are no equal rights for women
· Women can be beaten
· A non-Muslim cannot bear arms
· There is no equal protection under Sharia for different classes of people. Justice is dualistic, with one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims.
· Our Constitution is a man-made document of ignorance, jahiliyah, that must submit to Sharia
· There is no democracy, since that means that a non-Muslim is equal to a Muslim
· Non-Muslims are dhimmis, third-class citizens
· There is no Golden Rule
· There is no critical thought
· All governments must be ruled by Sharia law
As Christians are expected to go into the world and proclaim the Gospel so to Muslims are to spread their religion which is based on the aforementioned laws. Thanks but no thanks, I don’t want to help or encourage a religion that will take away my American freedom.
It was Christians praying and walking the Wilson Pike property praying that kept this Islamic Center pushed back but if they can I am sure they will be back. Hopefully those with the power of influence will research Islam and be more knowledgeable about it’s precepts.
DON'T have children. We don't want you vermin to breed.
We that Christian and Jewish communities of the US are well aware of the suppression of the religious and civil rights of our brothers and sisters in Muslim dominated countries. We are also well aware of the violence and agitation of Muslims in Europe for special rights permitting their implementation of Sharia law inside the boarders of liberal countries where their numbers are growing.
I would ask The Muslin American Society to publicly admonish the Muslims states of the world (each specifically) to repeal all laws that place non-Muslims in a second class status in respect to religious and civil rights.
As a particular show of good faith I would ask the MAS to make a special appeal to the Muslim Holy Land of Saudi Arabia to grant religious and civil rights to non-Muslims. Particularly I would ask them to appeal for the rights of Christians and Jews to openly worship, build churches and synagogues, and to proselytize.
The MAS must do these things in an international press release
The MAS must also open their books to inspection to verify they have no ties to international Islamic terrorist.
If the MAS would do these things I would remove my objections to this real estate transfer.
Go back to B-F Egypt, all of you.
They spread crap thicker than Apple Butter don’t they?
And will the Muslim American Society vocally condemn the restrictions on Christians in Muslim countries and actively campaign them to allow Christians to build churches?
Unfortunately, these American Muslims are mostly cowards, who casually look the other way or whisper apologies to one another when a member of their religion commits a gargantuan crime against innocents. None of them stand up, none of them speak out against the barbarians within their midst. One Muslim lawyer in NYC told me he stopped going to the Mosque because they were too hard core in their sermons and beliefs. I told him if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem. He should be writing editorials in the NY Times outing these jackals, but he was far too fearful. He needs to speak out but he is a coward. None of this crew, whom I assume to be innocent would risk a hair on their heads to weed out the murderers worshipping among them. They are not an inspiring people. The heroes in their world are obviously the terrorists who are willing to die for jihad. (Remember Muslim communities in Patterson and Newark NJ were cheering in the streets on 9/11.)
When good men do nothing. I offer an indictment of them, of their tacit agreement, complicit with these horrendous jihadist acts - their silence is consent. I believe they consider the non Muslim American as the enemy, clearly an infidel.
The first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993 was plotted from within the walls of a Jersey City mosque. It would have been nice to thank the congregation for the early warning but they never gave us one.
What do these people feel, how can they walk on our streets and feel no shame? There are more than a handful of murderers among them. Yet they act like they are the victims. Their charities have funded terrorist acts.
America needs a break - maybe 50 years to heal the wounds that these people inflicted upon us.
I live on Staten Island. I was at the anti mosque sale meeting. The MAS crowd talked but as usual they said nothing. One funny moment came when their spokesman tried to score points with us. He BRAGGED that “We have a letter of commendation from Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee.” When the room broke up in laughter he changed gears and said “MAS was invited to the White House.” There was dead silence. Somebody yelled “Yeah when?” The dummie said “Three months ago,” and it brought the house down again. MAS was founded by a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Nothing else need be said.
Of course they love America, because they are free to advance Islam here.
