The Mad Rush to Build the Ground Zero Mega-Mosque
Big Peace ^ | July 9, 2010

Posted on 07/09/2010 3:54:15 PM PDT by NCjim

New York politicians are bending over backwards and violating protocol to build a mega mosque at Ground Zero. In warped speed they are ramming it through, removing every obstacle to expedite the process and erect a triumphal mosque at Ground Zero in time for it to meet its stated opening date, the tenth anniversary of September 11. Why? Would they do this for a church? A synagogue? This is an outrage.

Wednesday night, on less than a week and a half’s notice (at a time when most people who care are not even around), the Lower Manhattan Community Board 1 (LMCB) Landmark Commission (LMCBLC) held a meeting to consider the landmark status of 45-47 Park Place (the site of the proposed 911 mega-mosque). Refusing to wait until the entire board could meet, seven board members voted to deny landmark status to the Burlington Coat Factory building, removing another obstacle to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s supremacist, triumphal mosque.

Yet the historical significance of the property is clear: the famous architect Daniel D. Badger designed the building. A number of his buildings have already been given landmark status. The New York Times obituary (in the November 19, 1884 issue, p. 2) for Badger (1806-1884) called him “the pioneer of this country in the use of iron for building purposes.”

More importantly, his building has special historical significance because of 911. It was part of the attack. The landing gear of one the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center towers flew out to the Burlington Coat Factory building, and fell through the roof to the basement. The fact that the committee ignores that fact is outrageous, and disrespects the victims of 911.

The LMCBLC unanimously (with one recusal) voted Wednesday to recommend to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) that landmark status be denied. Yes, this ugly decision was unanimous. The one recusal came from a board member who admitted to being in bed with the owner (future financial gains implied). This was the same tool who during last month’s community board meeting was shilling for the mosque. Apparently, one of the owners of the property approached him and subsequently corresponded with him. He said he was recusing himself because although there was no “immediate” financial benefit to him, he thought it appropriate given potential conflicts of interest. The same member of the LMCBLC made reference to Kristallnacht, implying that opponents of the mosque are Nazis. Outrageous, I tell you.

Meanwhile Ground Zero will still be a hole in the ground when the Mosque opens victoriously.

If they get this Masque built before a replacement for the WTC is built, that will be the final humiliation.

NYC is the absolute gold-standard in overreaching, incompetent and useless bureaucracies.

It is disgusting. I am sure barry will go to the opening and say something “tolerant” and ignore 9/11.

Who would have thought, that the first new president after 9-11 would be a foreign born muslim with name that was on letter of difference from the perpetrator of the crime?

We are living in a twilight zone version of this country.

New Yorkers are stupid and arrogant.

They vote for people who I’m told they disagree with.

But all those people will easily win re-election.

So what do you want me to say?

And before you write me, New York is a big blue state packed with liberal Democrats and RINOs. They love to sit around lecturing the rest of us - yet look at the way they’re $h!tt!ng in their own bed.

Conversion of non-Muslim places of worship into mosques

Conversion of non-Muslim houses of worship into mosques began during the life of Muhammad and continued during subsequent Islamic conquests and under the Muslim rule. As a result, numerous Hindu temples, churches, synagogues, the Parthenon and Zoroastrian temples became mosques.

Lots More here, documenting how Muslim Architectural Triumphalism continues:

You watch, the Dakota Roadhouse (long time watering hole right next door) will be forced to close because of these Muslimes.

If I were the Dakota Roadhouse owner I would have a pig roast every Friday with women in bikinis serving patrons out on the sidewalk.

It is not only ridiculous and creepy to build the pig sty there, but also that it will be flanked by the Amish Market and The Roadhouse compounds the weirdness factor.

I told someone that there was a mosque being built at ground zero that is a stanch liberal, they thought I was lying.

I told them to look it up and then told him what a mosque is celebrating and when the opening is. He was in total shock, he said it can’t be true.

Then he looked it up. As soon as he saw it he started telling all his friends and they are all having that deer in the head light look.

I said, look what the Dems are doing, what are they thinking?

In this case it’s money and power. I’m sure any Dem who fights this has a short future in politics. I’m also sure that the pols expect a little green coming their way from the deep pockets backing the whole obscene idea.

Also Meanwhile, Dubai was able to build the newest worlds tallest building (featuring the world's highest mosque near the top) in only FIVE years! NY-ers should be ashamed of themselves with all the dickering and infighting they do.

I flew over NYC this weekend and saw the hole-in-the-ground where the Towers used to be. I thought, “If we were a country in ascendency, we would have rebuilt the towers by now.” It’s outrageous they haven’t been rebuilt. That alone shows weakness. Even more outrageous would be the placement of a mosque in close proximity. Are we nuts to allow this? There’s no question that this is a “celebration” of muslim victory - check your history! And for an opening by 9/11/11? Come on.....

This would be a great opportunity for unions to get some credibility by taking a stand against it. It can't happen without unions being on board but I do see them missing this prime PR victory and going with the Dem dollars as usual.

In viewing the Kill the Ground Zero add I came across this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjS0Novt3X4&feature=related

The guy does a great and passionate job. He’s British and knows from experience what Islamization means. I recommend it.

It is, but your run of the mill Democrat has no idea this is going on. When you tell them about it they are in complete shock. Denial, then they call you a liar, then they go check it out, then they get angry.

You may think that the majority of America’s liberals wouldn’t care but when you present the information to even the most stanchest liberal they freak out.

Eerily reminiscent of the Nazi swastika high atop the Reichstag in Berlin. That was blown up when Berlin fell. I wonder when the mosque will be leveled. As sure as God made little green apples, if built, it will be leveled.

It’s my understanding this is how Islam swings.

You defeat an adversary, and then you build a mosque on the ruins, thus declaring it defeated. The mosque remains, while history moves around. Voila! Muslim forever triumphant. This is what we declare if we allow a mosque to be built at Ground Zero. I don’t know how it can be stopped. It is beyond me.

Has anyone been fasting and praying about this? If you want good to triumph over evil in this instance, I think some serious prayer warriors are called for. Look how many abortion centers have closed over the years due to consistent prayer and a continuous peaceful witness against evil. I think at a very minimum, saying a prayer for God’s will to be done every time we pass a mosque, should be standard operating procedure.
