[Radical Islamic] Mosque Developer Rejects Meeting With Paterson (9/11 Victory Mosque still on!!)
AP/NBCNewYork ^ | 8-18-10

Posted on 08/18/2010 8:11:41 AM PDT by pillut48

The developers of an Islamic cultural center that would include a mosque near Ground Zero have rejected Gov. David Paterson's offer to help them find a different site.

Paterson said today the group is apparently committed to building in the proposed site. "I think they would like to stay where they are, and I certainly respect that and I certainly respect them," Paterson said.

But, Paterson said the dialogue would have been useful as the project has ignited nationwide debate over freedom of religion and anger over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.. "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?"

The planned $100 million center would be built two blocks from the World Trade Center site, where nearly 2,800 people died when Islamic extremists flew jets into the twin towers. The project is headed by Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, a Muslim cleric who has worked to improve relations between Islam and the West.

This was never about "being sensitive to the needs of those in pain over 9/11", or "it's just a business decision, has nothing to do with Ground Zero"--it's all about bragging rights for Islamists and a victory symbol for those who are conquering America bit by bit, with help from the inside!! >:-(

The Victory Mosque is the line in the sand.

If they get it, the US will be under Sharia Law within 20 years.

Totally agree. Democrats and other idiots elected Imam Obama and the Victory Mosque helped by ALL the TV networks which own all the channels.

Meanwhile - the economy is imploding.

Sources tell CBS 2’s Kramer that Gov. Paterson is concerned that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of putting the mosque at ground zero, and President Barack Obama, might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.

The problem won't be the union bosses not allowing the workers to build the mosque; the bosses will take their orders from Obama. The problem, from what I'm hearing, will be the rank-and-file telling the union bosses to get stuffed.

Obama has decided his 9/11 Victory Mosque will be his line in the sand. The Kenyan will build his tribute to Jihad by whatever means possible.

My thought exactly. The unions make a big deal out of wearing American flags on their hardhats. Are the construction unions going to stand up for that flag, or not?

I have been searching for con ed’s position here and not finding it online-
Con Ed owns half the site
plans submitted and approved include ConEd’s property.
so,how would this get built ?

they would have to submit revised plans and this go round will be different in light of nationwide uproar.
right ?

and con ed just can’t sell that property without going through reviews,etc.

I would like someone out there to find out what Bloomberg’s payoff for these services will be. I read some rumblings about his business dealings in the UAE but nothing definite.

There’s no doubt in my mind that his actions go wa-a-a-y beyond the usual liberal sanctimony and arrogance. He’s getting something out of this after he leaves office.

Some union will build it. Someone here who works in NYC in construction said bangladeshis and they can also import the workers.

This issue will be dead within 5 days. Just like the trial of the sheikh it will quietly fade away until after the election.

It's hard to believe Soebarkah would be that politically stupid. If there were a compromise and a site change, Soebarkah would still get his creds for "standing up for constitutional rights," but the mosque issue would eventually go away. If he really is encouraging the imam to dig in his heels about the site, he is just making matters worse for himself politically. I must say I don't understand this fellow at all!

The more loudly and messily this drags out the more of a nightmare the actual construction will be and the more people will peel off from the project. I can’t imagine at this point what sort of union man would be willing to walk through picket lines of protesters under the glare of the camera. I can’t imagine the union bosses who would give this their imprimatur given what an ugly spectacle it would be and what public outrage it would bring down on their heads. Are the workers going to come to the gate in armored scab buses and wear ski masks?

Sure, there are Muslim-owned contractors but even the muzzie contractors and vendors would have to think twice about the repercussions to future business. Cordoba Initiative can send out for foreign contractors and the same down-trodden Bangaladeshi workers who currently toil under the Arabian sun but can you just imagine the astronomical expense of importing every worker, tool and sack of cement from overseas? It will all have to be unloaded in Canada and trucked to NYC as I kinda doubt ILWU will touch it at this juncture. Fewer and fewer entities who do substantial business in the U.S. will touch this with a ten-foot pole the longer and louder the controversy becomes.

The Cordoba Project may have the POTUS, the dem-liberal establishment, the MSM and the entire governing apparatus of the United States of America in their hip pocket but that’s all for naught if the Oil sheiks don’t give Imam Rauf the millions he needs. Yesterday the director of Al-Arabiya publicly came out against the project—and Al-Arabiya is owned by the UAE sheiks. That makes it official.

The smell of flop-sweat is overpowering now that this morning’s WaPo is reduced to desperately entreating the previously-reviled GWB to come out and bless the project. It has certainly been hilarious to hear all the “seminar callers” trying to talk over Rush, Laura, Sean, etc.

The lib/dems have lashed themselves to the mast of this sinking dhow and they just keep doubling down and lashing out incoherently at the whole G-D’d country with threats and insults. Now Pelosi is reduced to threatening to investigate the opposition as if there was some secret organization of white men in suits smoking cigarettes al la “X-Files” somewhere pulling our strings. I previously joked that maybe Obama would throw stimulus money at the project but now why not? They just keep ostentatiously screwing us over and throwing dung at us, why stop now?

Popcorn sales must be off the charts.

I agree. Bloomberg's remarks appear preposterous to anyone who is familiar with New York, such as his observation that the mosque will improve "diversity" - New York is one of the most, if not the most, diverse cities in the world and already includes numerous mosques and quite a few predominantly muslim-oriented neighborhoods.

Also, his suddent epiphany in favor of enlightenment rights is strange - his method of governance is to shove things down people's throats that they don't want, including ignoring property rights, voter referendums, etc.

Bloomberg is speaking to a different audience, trying to make an impression somewhere else, as a "statesman" or something. Whatever it is he is looking for, it will come out with time.

It's hard to believe Soebarkah would be that politically stupid....

You speak as if his objective is to govern the United States with respect to his vow to uphold the Constitution. That is not the case. His goal is to overthrow the Constitution, by any means necessary. Pinioning a foothold in the epicenter of capitalism for our new overlords is part of that strategy.

Yes, they will. And they will bring prayer rugs and pray to Mecca 5 times a day on the job site if they are told to by their bosses. Union workers are sheep and do whatever they are told.
