Ground Zero Mosque Opens for Business (Today!)
Frontpage.com ^ | 9/21/11 | R Mauro

Posted on 09/21/2011 2:27:19 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

September 21 at 6:30 PM, the Ground Zero Mosque will open its doors to show a photo exhibit in its community space. Park51 is hoping to discourage its opponents by declaring an early victory in spite of its recent embarrassments and setbacks. This grand opening does not mean that the fight is over. The project still has a long way to go until completion.

Not much can be done as they who own the property can do what they want with their property.

The pro-Hussein media is promoting this like a victory for civil rights, just like they did for gays in the military.

“Progressives” and jihadis want the same things: the complete extermination of Christians and Israel. (and THEN they'll have time to become “peaceful” and “tolerant” people they know they are deep inside)

I do hope zoning laws have something to say about dragging a hog carcass through the lobby as a sort of decorator’s statement for the new diggs.

Hell it’s like that in UPSTATE NY. Eminent domain rules in the smaller cities. Neighborhood infested with drugs? Simply swing the wrecking ball at private rental property and don’t compensate the owner (see Rochester NY)

Out in the rural areas, the DEC boys tell you an upturned bottle cap is a “wetland” and therefore you are forbidden to build a garage on your property or make use of that half acre you call a “back yard.”

This is besides all the swaggering, drunk with power, code inspectors and the ensuing permit fee upon permit fee.

Why can’t Christians hold a bible study at home on “their property” without a permit?

I guess some religions are more equal than others.

Park 51 AKA "Ground Zero Mosque" To Exhibit "Art" On Wednesday

Pamela Geller's SHARIA Hotline is burning up right now: the organizers of Park 51 AKA "The Ground Zero Victory Mosque" are opening a photo exhibition by artist Danny Goldfield in the former Burlington Coat Factory on Wednesday. What kind of photos? Muslims celebrating 9/11? Puppies getting beaten with Korans? Bald eagles being tortured by crescent moons? From Park 51's Kickstarter: "Danny is photographing a child from every country on earth currently living in New York City."

Park 51 raised the $70K necessary for the show, which is a "salon-style presentation of over 170 beautiful color portraits of children." Goldfield, who has snapped photos for LIFE, CNN and FOX news, says the exhibit is "about finding the courage to meet and get to know neighbors to build trust and friendship." Yeah, well there BETTER be some photos of kids from the USA in that exhibit!

You mean, why not open the Ground Zero Mosque with a “Happy September 11th!” observance? We know the muzzies considered it.

There’s a mosque across the street where I live (in a high rise thank goodness) and the Friday following 9-11 the muzzies had a HUGE party like I’d never seen before. Burkas and hijabs and kufis and beards were everywhere. Even rides for the littler jihadis. Then a huge amount of trash left on the curb the following day.

Coincidence?

Oh yes I’m sure it was. It was probably just the imam’s birthday bash or maybe they were celebrating the forced circumcision of a 4 year old girl. Something innocent. ;d

Well we just heard about the case in California where a home study group was fined $300 with $500 more fines if they don’t stop and get the unobtainable permit.

Can NY be much different?

"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle ….
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.

So it’s OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."


“Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romney’s operation. “

I will in no way defend that local statute in California which prohibits Bible or such study groups and you cannot compare what is local law in California to what may occur in NYC.

The bottom line is that the Constitution does not specify which people may or may not be able to exercise property rights.

And I don’t think any of us want to live in a country where local, state or government officials dictate who can and cannot build on their property.

As I understand it, San Juan Capistrano and NYC are two different jurisdictions and may not necessarily have identical municipal laws.

just like the left and the resident left wing trolls who come on here.

They will not give up and will always try to give their views or get what they want.
They’re like little kids throwing a tantrum.

Here in Ohio the zoning boards have a LOT of control over who builds and where. This is blasphemy. We know they build mosques at sites they have *conquered* there has to be a way to stop this.
The families of 9/11 victims are fighting to have their loved remains buried where they want, gov can dictate that?
Oscar Meyer ought to mistakenly dump their waste there. This country is getting crazier by the day.

Yes, and some so-called conservatives aid them by pretending to be purists on the matter. Yet they would themselves be in a hissy fit if their neighborhood became threatened by an undesirable, though legal, presence.

Were I to find myself in NYC this weekend, I think I’d find a way to visit the mosque...with a few packs of bacon and some drippings in can. And then I’d call it ‘freedom of speech’ and protest favoring one religion over another (favorite lib tactic) and I’m sure the MSM would make me a hero. Right?

This will be never open.

Not because leftists don't want it (they do), or because conservatives oppose it.

I've been hearing for awhile, that this is all an elaborate fundraising scam to milk money out of donors (mostly leftists).

Alot of muslims, or at least alot of folks in the muslim community here in new york, are chattering/gossiping that the money is going to go into the pockets of the group running this, who will turn around in the future, blame conservatives/christians/patriots, and say they "can't open", and will move on (with millions of dollars).

One muslim told me, that if this was a real venture to build a mosque, the saudis would have paid the whole thing in full, without hesitation. They know its a scam, because they know who the folks are running it.
