Posted on 08/16/2010 1:32:09 PM PDT by peggybac
fter weeks of heated debate over plans for an Islamic community center near Ground Zero the site of the 9/11 attacks on New York - it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down, agreeing to move to a new site.
The decision follows a high-profile campaign against the project that included advertisements on New York buses showing images of the burning Twin Towers, an iconic landmark razed when al-Qaida terrorists flew packed passenger planes into them in 2001. The New York Republican party is also said to be planning a hostile television campaign.
Sources in New York said on Monday that Muslim religious and business leaders will announce plans to abandon the project in the next few days.
New York Governor David Patterson said last weekend that Muslim leaders had rejected outright his proposal to swap the site in for another in Manhattan.

Wow, very smart PR victory for them. They can get to be the, “good guys.”
So it’s credible?
Glory Hallelujah! Great work, NY Repubs and Tea Partiers!
Yeah our enemies are clever.
Providing cover for the muslim-in-chief, if true.
Their little joke backfired when it “outed” Obama, now they’re in damage control mode.
So Obama saved the day. All you naysayers out thee Obama is a good President
Muslim student hit a Jewish, Democrat lawmaker in the face with a pie today. I think they want off the front pages now because the bad PR truth about Islam is getting out.
Is this accurate? Because they lost Harry Reid? Or because they gained Barack Obama?
It's from the same source as this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2571684/posts
Both cite blog posts, but the original article is here:
...Oh No!....they should have waited until Nov to do this...we needed the mosque issue...it was a Dem killer!
It still is along with everything else. The people won’t forget.
They’re not abandoning anything. They are merely altering their plans.
How about the White House lawn?
The issue is still there...maybe not as heated, but still there
Nevertheless, they get to build their mosque in Manhatten.
So while we’re all friends now, when do we get to build that pentecostal megachurch in Riyadh? When is that catholic cathedral going up in Dhahran?
They got their victory when Obama endorsed their idea to build a 9/11 Martyrs Victory Dome so he has some place to pray when he comes downtown.
To build a mosque on our holy ground was nothing more than a stinging slap in the face, especially in light of the fact that there are over a 100 mosques in New York City already.
The damage is done, in terms of pissing people off. They won't forget all the way to November 2nd and who enabled this and did not speak out against it...
This will only increase the intensity to vote against the Borg.
What a Fu**ing waste our republic has become.
Rightsphere has it from Haaretz. Here is a link to the Haaretz story: http://www.haaretz.com/news/international/muslim-leaders-to-abandon-plans-for-ground-zero-community-center-1.308426
I just told hubby that Haaretz is like the NY Times of Israel, but is that right?
I certainly DO hope this is true!
They will probably not call it “Cordoba House”, and only build it 6 floors high.
I strongly recommend the new site to be considered would be on the bottom of the Hudson River...and it had great halal seafood.......
Wait for the details...
Good news on the face of it.
“Muslim student hit a Jewish, Democrat lawmaker in the face with a pie today. I think they want off the front pages now because the bad PR truth about Islam is getting out.”
You got it.
The dirty cockroaches scurry into the shadows, hide from the light of public awareness.
only until the midterms are past.
obama is their boy, as are their traitorous allies, the Dems.
The heat got too hot and Reid, Pelosi, obama et. al called in a favor....
If true, this is very interesting. These people will do NOTHING unless it is in their own best interest. And having 16 hundred years of practice at being utter thugs, they’ll certainly not back down due to “bad press” or the negative sentiments of the American public. Let’s see if the story is factual. And don’t expect to get any truth from the MSM as to reasons.
Don’t believe them. Remember, they lie to achieve their agenda.
“So while were all friends now, when do we get to build that pentecostal megachurch in Riyadh? When is that catholic cathedral going up in Dhahran?”
Or how about a synagogue at Mecca? Probably won’t see any of this. Remember—they are the ONLY true religion and we are all infidels.
Too late for that.
Is this a retreat or merely a flanking movement?
Seems their PR team is better than Obama’s.
If you don't know what that word is or what it means, look it up. Because of the practice that word encourages, I wouldn't trust a muslim as far as I could throw my minivan.
Exactly. They’ll just wait until November 4th, then announce they’re building that moslem toilet after all.
No matter what the outcome, we’ll always know Obama stood with them.
well Greg Gutfeld should get some credit.
Patterson did well.
There are over 100 mosques un Manhatten
Exactly. They could be positioning now to paint themselves as “victims.” The meme in the media now is how “muslim-bashing” is on the rise.
FINALLY some sanity!
Just because they don’t want to rape us again, does not mean they do not leer at us with lust.
Yes, Greg Gutfeld probably flipped this around. Before him, we had Bloomberg ramming it down our throats.
Omoslem is crying in his falafel.
