Posted on 08/12/2010 7:12:27 AM PDT by rochester_veteran
The developers of the so-called Ground Zero mosque rejected New York Gov. David Patersons offer to provide state property if the project is moved farther away from where the twin towers once stood.
I think they would like to stay where they are, and I certainly respect that and I certainly respect them, Paterson said. Having said that, how much more foresighted would it have been if the imam who is the developer of the project had been willing to hear what we are actually talking about?

Instead, Rauf rejected it outright, without even discussing this with Paterson, making even Paterson wonder, how much more foresighted would it have been if the imam who is the developer of the project had been willing to hear what we are actually talking about?
At least things are out in the open now, unless youre a Ground Zero Mosque supporter and apologist. As many of us had a hunch, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is intent upon building this Mosque as a symbol, a monument to radical Islams greatest victory over Western Civilization. Rauf could have diffused the situation, but instead hes inflaming it!
It doesn’t make sense
To do your big Touchdown Dance
In the parking lot.
Thats because these “moderate muslims” intent to celebrate their success on 9/11.
It’s a scalp on a lodge pole; a victory shout by the Muslims.
They’re not interested in halfway measures.
Of course they rejected it.
The muslims would rather cross the bridge to Manhattan into the busiest business office real estate section in the world, through New York traffic, past many existing mosques in residential areas, to dance on our graves.
Roger that! The unwhitting Patterson just outed the agenda for all to see.
Doing things “in the name of God” are taken to be sacred rights within religions ...
“Ah, what fools these mortals be.”
You about summed it up.
Yes, he did. Even leaving aside the propriety of a state giving land to a specific religious group for the construction of a religious building, the fact that he got an outright refusal shows you exactly what the Islamic agenda is in building on this site.
Perhaps in a gesture of inclusion, tolerance, and embracing diversity we could fly an unmanned aerial vehicle loaded with jet fuel and explosives into the mosque once construction is complete.
Food for thought ....
A church is a tax exempt entity.
That’s why churches are typically NOT in commercially zoned areas, the city is unable to collect sales or property tax on a church; so if the church is allowed to build in a highly desired commercial district, tax revenue is adversely affected.
So, we not only have leadership that granted ‘special’ rights to Muslims to commit this insult; they have intentionally foregone collecting tax revenues for the building that the Mosque will reside in.
This is why you don’t see Catholic Churches, Jewish or Mormon Temples, Baptist churches or any other denomination’s church on Rodeo Drive, Wall Street or other ‘high demand’ commecial areas. And yes, the area around the Twin Towers site in New York is considered a highly desired property site for a commecial company.
Exactly; this is a holy site of conquest, not just any piece of real estate. The mosque facility will be huge and able to house the many thousands of muzzie pilgrims who will come to NY to pay tribute to their "great victory."
PJ Crowley is talking NOW about how IMPORTANT the IMAM is to State Dept. The enemy within.
I think they would like to stay where they are, and I certainly respect that and I certainly respect them, Paterson said......
I hope this idiot realizes he’s one of many “Doormat Americans” for terrorism in our country.....They won’t respect his sorry ass when they blow everything up!
What about the seperation of church and state?
Or does that not apply to mosque and state?
A state $65 BILLION in debt is going to GIVE $millions away to a religion, and yet tax others of another religion to foot the bill?
How would government giving land to a religious group not be seen as establishing a religion?
If spirit and outreach were part of his agenda, of course he would move.
But they are not.
This is an in-your-face challenge. Now it’s your/our move.
In Mecca :)
Support Greg Gutfeld’s moslem-friendly gay bar that he wants to put next to the GZ mosque.
Will all politicians with any balls please come to New York and defend our country?
Speaks volumes for Rauf’s motivations.....
Now that Paterson has opened Pandoras box of the governments willingness to give government land for a mosque, this sets a precident to the muzzies.
In a muzzies twisted logic, if the government is willing to give them government land for building a mosque, than the government land they should be given is the government land the Twin Towers stood on.
It was turned down, but can anyone imagine the uproar of state land was “given” to any other religion for a church or synagogue?
And of course, once this comes out in the public, King Obama will decree it by Executive Order.
Next step, governor calls out the New York militia to “fix” the problem...
Would someone PLEASE bring out the bacon?
Can’t say the Arabs/Islamics aren’t consistent.
They are principled. You can’t bribe them from their goals- dancing on our graves in this instance.
Just like when yesterday Lebanon said to refuse US aid and arms if they are not permitted to use such aid against Israel.
Who cares? The idea is to get the Muslims off Ground Zero and stop throwing their dispicable hateful Jihad in our faces.
Lace the land and building with lard; tell the Muzzies there was a pig farm on the property; give them a nice plot of land where they can be isolated from Christians who don’t care about PC - only protecting a hallowed spot in New York City.
But DON’T let the mosque be built.
islam is NOT a religion. It is a political entity with a “holy” book that instructs its adherents how to kill and conquer. Catholics, Baptist, Jews, Mathodists, Lutherans, and eve the Amish are true religious groups. They don’t go around killing to conquer.
That’s how Patterson could have given governmant land to the muzzies and not violate the the seperation of church and state deal.
How about moving it out of the USA.
, and I certainly respect that and I certainly respect them”
...and I respect Sharia law, and I respect their right to attack again because we suck, and I respect the removal of all christians and jews by force if necessary. Shut up you little asshole!
This could have been stopped as a national security issue, the whole thing would have had support of all Americans, and case closed.
Haven’t seen this asked, but I assume the call to prayer will be blared daily over Ground Zero?
I say bring the troops home now. There’s no point for our troops to be fighting and dying for nothing in Afghanistan if the cowards who run New York City see fit to surrender.
Let see how they like it.
Maybe a land swap?
If someone had told me on Sept.12, 2001 that ten years hence, the World Trade Center site would still be a vacant lot, while just down the street a shining new Mosque stood as a symbol of Islamic triumph, I would have thought them mad.
Yes .... and I think Thursday nights should be ladies' night .... slip into your favorite party burka and come on in and get stoned.
“The developers of the so-called Ground Zero mosque rejected New York Gov. David Patersons offer to provide state property if the project is moved farther away from where the twin towers once stood. “
The minute they rejected that offer should have taken everything off the table.
The moment they relinquish the religion angle, we box them out.
But then of course we have no politicians with ANY BALLS.
H311 NO!! Do not “give” them ANY land. And whoever approved this permit, or went along with this disgraceful mess after it was “approved” should be prosecuted for treason! Anyone and EVERYONE, including Bloomberg! Where is DHS?? The Pentagon? Have we no strong political voices left in this country?
Tolerance is going to be the death of us all, literally.
If Patterson believes that is inappropriate, why isn't he confronting Michael Bloomberg?
The muzzies aren’t going to willingly give up what is their equivalent to the planting of the flag at Iwo Jima.
If allowed to happen, this mosque will be their tribute to the 19 islamists who murdered 3000 infidels.
Can folk there sue? And keep this evil stinker riding on the courts for years?!
Gutfeld said the bar would be muslim-friendly. That means no alcohol will be served. You will, however, be able to chose among 72 virgin drinks. LOL.
They are building a new target for airplanes near ground zero?
Rev Wright shares the same view that America is to blame for 911. Barry and Michelle share the same feelings, as they attended that Church for more than 20 years
I think the five families of New York need to make them offer that they can’t refuse.
I guess Eminent Domain can only be used against Joe Homeowner. It cannot be used against Mohammed Northtower.
