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.

“And I dont 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 a commercial real estate broker and someone who taught real estate law, econ, finance, and practice in college, I must ask when you plan on leaving this country. You are apparently unaware of the power such officials have over our property and property rights.
What sweet irony it would be if a spotted owl or some other “endangered” bird were to roost on one of window sills of this “mosque”, delaying the opening of this POS indefinitely.
I'm pretty much thinking it might be true, alot of these muslims folks seem to know who these guys are, and they describe them as being very shady.
The flip side (aka disclaimer), Muslims/arabs tend to be very big conspiracy theorists, so who knows, but they do have some points here (like how most of the money isn't coming from muslims in New York but from leftys around the country).
One of them gave me a pretty good idea about how this is a scam. He noted that the original cleric in charge had been telling the media, that he was going to go to iran to try and raise money. Okay. As this guy pointed out, this is supposed to be a sunni mosque, the iranians are shiite. It would be like protestants going to the pope to build a baptist church. Its for media consumption, since they don't know, but muslims do.
I hope a pork stand opens up in front of the building.
Interesting screenname. How did you come by it, if I may ask?
Great pic of the twin towers, and interesting info
What a middle finger: from both the Muslim community and the liberal elite that let them do this. :(
Anyone still think we’re going to win the War on Terror? We can’t even stop the Jihadists here in America. :(:(:(:(
I walked passed this place the other day during lunch. What a dump!
FWIW, I don’t think all Muslims are bad. I know personally of a Christian ministry that preached the gospel to the homeless on the streets.
The parking lot they used every Sunday was that of a local supermarket—and they used it with the blessing of the (at least nominally) Muslim business owner.
Convenient timing as the UN meets in NYC..Iran’s fearless leader waving to the crowds. Israel getting slammed, US getting slammed and scammed. Is Franklin Graham going to be invited to speak at the opening (sarcasam)
The Death Star is almost complete.
....And in the end, both progressives and jihadis LOSE. Neither Israel now Christianity is going to go away.
It happened in the People’s Republic of Kalifornia:
I thought the Constitution applied to all of the states, and people could do what they wanted with “their property” anwhere in the United States.
trumandogz is the resident muslim apologist.
Around 15 years ago, I was working offshore and reading David McCullogh’s bio on Harry Truman and also reading In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.
One of the guys thought it was funny and started calling me by that name.
“I believe you may not be aware of the zoning laws.”
As a conservative, I find zoning laws to be an overreach of governmental power that often times debilitates a property owner’s ability to maximize the financial utility of the land that they own.
However, if there is a specific zoning law in NYC which prohibits such a structure from being built in the city, then the land owners would have to comply.
You must understand that the US Constitution is not a cafeteria plan and you cannot pick and choose which parts of the Constitution should and should not be followed nor can you decide which people will and will not be protected by the Constitution.
I have read the entire Federal Convention debate and the philosophers favored by the authors.
and you cannot pick and choose which parts of the Constitution should and should not be followed nor can you decide which people will and will not be protected by the Constitution.
This has NOTHING to do with picking and choosing which parts we should or should not follow. Islam is incompatible with the social contract simply because its adherents believe their claims SUPERSEDE the Constitution in its entirety.
Got it? I didn't pick and choose, Muslims did. They are not Americans regardless of the twisted fantasy that has conferred them the legal status of "citizenship" with they gladly use to dismember that very Constitution. They are not deserving of its protections because they have stated, in writing, that they seek to destroy them.
Glad to clear things up for you.
