NYC Mayor: 'Sad Day' If Mosque Plans Blocked (barf alert)
Voice of America Government Propaganda Radio ^ | 8/16/2010

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be a "sad day for America" if opponents block plans for a mosque near the site of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in Manhattan.

Bloomberg told a news conference Monday that the government should not interfere in people's religion. He said stopping the mosque and community center just because they are two blocks away from where "freedom was attacked" would mark a sad day for the country.

The mayor and others who support the building of the center have said it will help bridge divisions between the West and the Muslim world.

Opposition Republicans have criticized President Barack Obama for comments he made supporting the right of developers to carry through with the controversial plan.

Senator John Cornyn said Sunday it is "unwise" to build a mosque near the site where more than 2,600 Americans were killed. He described Mr. Obama as "disconnected from the mainstream of America" for what he said is the president's support of the center's construction.

On Saturday, Mr. Obama said he supports the "right" of Muslims to build a place of worship and community center on private property in New York City, but that he would not comment on the "wisdom" of doing so.

Republican Representative Peter King, who opposes the center's planned location, accused Mr. Obama Sunday of changing his position on the project. King said the project's sponsors are "pouring salt" into what he called Americans' "raw wound" from the attacks.

Opinion polls by CNN/Opinion Research indicate that 68 percent of Americans oppose building a mosque less than one kilometer from the site where al-Qaida hijackers crashed two passenger planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Many Americans say putting a mosque so close to the site would be disrespectful to those killed.

The prayer room would be part of a $100 million Islamic center featuring a 500-seat auditorium, sports facilities, theater and restaurant, and would be open to all visitors.

In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring “concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury”, the ambassador replied:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.

In over two hundred years things haven’t changed only now they have enablers like Bloomberg to help them!

And those who fail to learn from history... Could it be that this is Bloomie’s idea of currying favor with the sheiks and emirs in the Mideast so his news service can gain a foothold there? Hey, business is business, right?

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult, it is it’s own government, its judicial...is in its sharia, and its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. To supplant and replace.

The sooner America learns this , the better.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. As a Muslim, he knows this but is looking to deceive America.

Didn't the blind sheikh plan the 1993 WTC bombing from a NYC mosque?

Just sayin'.

Mike,no doubt,lives in some leafy and *breathtakingly* wealthy town in Jersey,Westchester County or Fairfield County.I'll wager that he'd have no problem with this new “mosque” being placed right next door to his 75 acre estate.

To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, 'we laugh at honor and then are shocked to find traitors in our midst'

All those who defend the Mosque are traitors.

The mayor and others who support the building of the center have said it will help bridge divisions between the West and the Muslim world.

If those responsible for building this gave 2 sh^ts about bridging divisions between the West and the Muslim world, they would never have suggested building it there in the first place.

Bloomberg is such a doufous. The NYT today said: "On Sept. 11, the landing gear assembly of one of the planes used in the attack crashed through the roof of what was then a Burlington Coat Factory."

No, this site is NOT two blocks away. It is, in fact, an integral part of GROUND ZERO and should be treated as such.

There are body parts that came flying into that structure, and on the grounds around it.

Because it's inconceivable that the proponents don't know the history of the site, we are all forced to admit that this is a plan for an Islamofascist triumphal victory tower.
