Posted on 08/19/2010 8:09:39 PM PDT by GOP_Lady
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is characterizing the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero as "divisive," saying Thursday that the organizers' plans are breeding hate rather than healing wounds.
"All this is doing is creating more division, more anger, more hatred," Mr. Giuliani said during an interview on NBC's "Today" show.
"The reality is that right now, if you are a healer, you do not go forward with this project. If you're a warrior you do," declared Mr. Giuliani, the New York official most closely associated with the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
The remarks put him squarely at odds with his successor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the proposed mosque's most outspoken advocate.
Mr. Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney and a Republican candidate for president in 2008, said the organizers have "every right" to build the center two blocks from the site of the fallen Twin Towers.
"The question is, should they build it?" he said. "Are they displaying the sensitivity they claim by building it?"

There is no reason for it to be divisive!
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. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is its 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 Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.
It is political, and its goal is 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. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.
For all interested...Wanna learn more?
Lets keep America, America!

You are welcome.
And you are correct! :-)
I have a gut feeling that “divisiveness” is exactly what the enemy wants to do to America.
It is using every means to do just that.
Divide and conquer.
Unfortunately, he heavily serves the NAMBLA crowd.
Mitt usually has something to say a month or more after an event. It’s early now. He’s waiting for research reports, poll testing.. before he makes a vague, platitudinous speak
DUH, I meant Hannity
Oh, I was going to catch the replay of O’Reilly to see if he was on that show as well.
Romney seems as tone-deaf on these ad-hoc news stories as Palin seems to pick the right ones to weigh in on.
Finally somebody's properly framed the debate: the muzzies are insensitive, not us. If we're a little bit touchy over the place where 2500 of our people were massacred, who can blame us?
RINO Giuliani, "alighting upon the obvious, with a sense of surprise."
Leave it to the Democrats to side with a religion founded by a child-molesting, mass murdering misogynist.
His more incisive remarks were about Sharia law: How can they scream “freedom of religion” and then ignore our fundamental freedom from interference by government in religious matters by proposing religious law? A total contradiction.
I have my problems with Rudy, but is there any doubt he would have been a better president than McCain.
What’s Rudy’s view on Bloomberg “ending” term limits? Rudy was a better mayor, IMHO, despite his RINO tendencies and despite his “drag queen” moment. Rudy would be mayor right now, if he ended up getting rid of term limits, instead of Bloomberg doing so. What a shame!

BAAAMMMMM ON TARGET TARGET DESTROYED FIRE FOR EFFECT
The truly sad thing is that, only a few years ago, this would have been obvious to all.
Wouldn’t want him as President, but he was a hell of a mayor, and on stuff like this, he’s great. And he’s using the liberals’ favorite words—things like “divisive”—against them. It’s great to watch.
