Skip to comments.Muslim leaders to abandon plans for Ground Zero community center (Disputed)
Posted on 08/16/2010 1:11:51 PM PDT by Bokababe
After weeks of heated debate over plans for an Islamic community center near Ground Zero - the site of the 9/11 attacks on New York - it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down, agreeing to move to a new site. ...

I am not discrediting the story....but NEVER trust a Muslim when they back off on something that offends non-Muslims.
Their Islamic Terrorist Hall of Fame is still in the works near Ground Zero....never trust the Muslims.
These are the same people that claimed they had peace with Israel....numerous times....only to attack later
What about the mosque?
“Even if this story turns out to be true you can bet that they will find an angle to further their own agenda. They won’t simply cave. Not a bit.”
Am I dreaming?
It doesn't matter where they build the next mosque, I still hate Islam. It's a totalitarian political system disguised as a religion. Get out of my country!
I do, the dems and obowma are getting beat like red hair step children with this issue. It's not over, but they are certainly trying to get this off the news cycle.....
Did they hear there’d be a strip club next door if they built it? That’d get ‘em.
They want one on every block in America. Kinda like they're doing in the UK. Islam must be purged.
I asked myself the same question. But when I saw it on Haaretz -- which is the paper of the Liberal Israeli politicos -- I figured that they must have a better in on what's going on in Liberal NY than the rest of us.
Gibbs “attacks” liberals in order to triangulate.
Obama praises Islam, Islamic world cheers that he’s in their corner.
Will they now triangulate, knowing they’ve got something far more valuable than even the mosque could be?

3. Ha’aretz reports GZ mosque is moving..... http://myloc.me/aFDkd about 1 hour ago via UberTwitter
There’s actually one closer. Only two blocks from the proposed site. I also heard that no parades are allowed to pass by a Mosque. I wonder if this is why the Macy’s Parade had to change their route?
I hope this is true.
I’m assuming they backed off because they didn’t want to hurt their agent in the White House.
They are running away to live and fight another day.
It will be very interesting to see what, if anything, comes of this news item.
Rush knows exactly why, the other mosque can’t be claimed as a victory mosque to raise the spirits of our enemies.
I’m assuming they backed off because of the clear and present political repercussions. These Imams play chess with religion so to speak, and sometimes you gotta take a few lumps. I don’t trust them.
“If true, someone in the Whitehouse must have called them and asked them to please, pretty please, back off for the time being, to take pressure off of Zero”
FOIA the phone records.
I’m sure there is an abandoned hog factory somewhere where they can build their mosque.
With political trends moving as they are, how is this a smart bet?
I hope so!!! This muslim “community center” was going to be dedicated on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11/2011. This should not be allowed to happen.
For the record, I also wouldn’t approve of a Japanese Shinto shrine next to Pearl Harbor to be dedicated on 12/7/2011, or an American “community center” at ground zero in Hiroshima.
This isn’t going to change anything. Everybody’s on the record now.
Obama should have put the arm to these guys and got them to back off. He wouldn’t/couldn’t, so now all that’s left is Obama telling all of the 9/11 victims what racists they all are by not climbing on board the tolerance bandwagon.
I wont believe it until I see a Starbucks there.
no future site is named. It will be after the next attack. /s
Nor do I.
I hope it’s true, but I’ll believe it when I see them seek a permit for a different location.
Did anyone else notice the timing here? Full bore “We’re here to build bridges, you islam hating infidel bastards” until the moment Zero steps in it, then all of a sudden they back out. Hmmmm...
I’m skeptical, too...but keep in mind that Obama wasn’t in a heap of trouble when Patterson made his offer.
Just heard on the radio that Harry Reid is against the mosque.
Polls must be tightening!
On Friday he told the Muslims he had gathered in the PEOPLES house, along with the entire world which side he is really on in the war on terror = America or Islam. He made his choice and sided with Islam over America and told us all that he approves of the MUSLIM 9/11 VICTORY Mosque, that He DOES NOT OBJECT TO IT and that he wants it built at the site of Islam's victory over America. HIS ADMINISTRATION, HIS STATE DEPARTMENT is spending OUR TAXPAYER MONEY TO SEND THE IMAM WHO IS HELL-BENT ON BUILDING THIS MONSTROSITY ALL OVER THE
I S L A M I C WORLD
TO RAISE MONEY TO BUILD THE 9/11 VICTORY MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO IN ORDER TO HUMILIATE ALL OF AMERICA! (The Imam is still there, rasing money! He will NOW just use it for SOME OTHER ANTI-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES.)
The words Obama said on Friday in support of this abomination he agreed to and proclaimed before all of those assembled and before the entire world OF HIS OWN FREE WILL.
Obama is nothing but a liar following Satan, the Father of lies! He is not to be trusted, he is to be opposed and no matter what the "White House" says, we must all remember that according to taqqiya it is completely "kosher" in Islam for Muslims to LIE in order to deceive those who do not follow Islam = i.e., the "infidels", in order to gain your ultimate ends of conquest and total subjugation. That is exactly what Obama the closet Marxist Muslim is doing = lying in order to deceive America and Americans.
The problem is this; with his statement on Friday Obama COMPLETELY and PERMANENTLY BROKE FAITH WITH THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA! He once and for all told America and the World exactly which side he is on: He supports Islam and the enemies of the United States both at home and abroad. We have him speaking these words, on video. He can lie and obfuscate and try to "backpedal" all he wants, but it is too late, HE CAN NOT UNDO WHAT HE HAS SAID AND DONE:
Obama didn't just "spit it the eye of America;" he pulled down his pants in front of the entire country and world, squatted on the hallowed 9/11/01 Ground Zero site and took a huge PUBLIC DUMP UPON GROUND ZERO AND UPON ALL OF AMERICA! After he was done, he got up, pulled up his pants, smiled, his narcissistic smile at the camera and said: "This is where I stand regarding America, Islam and Ground Zero."
Obama is Satan's servant = totally anti-American, anti-Semitic and filled with the spirit of antichrist.
It says “it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down.”
Seems. I wouldn’t call that news at all.
No doubt Obama orchestrated this. I wonder what this will wind up costing American in the next couple of years.
Did Omoslem promise them Fort Hood?
Literally “the cap,” it’s an Islamic concept in which a believer is allowed to pretend to be an infidel if it will serve the cause of advancing Isalm or help him avoid persecution. The person who put that keyword in was probably referring to Obama.
@Park51: There is no truth to the Haaretz story. It is wholly incorrect. We will be publishing a press release regarding this shortly.
Park 51 is the Twitter name for the Cordoba Project

Omoslem got the weekend poll results on this.
It’s only Monday. That must’ve been some serious fury by REAL Americans. Against that scum-sucking dirty moslem traitor commie and his merry band of koranimals.
FReepers are smart.
Yes, it’s true. You’re even allowed to pretend to be an infidel if it will advance Islam or save you from major persecution.
... Backers hope moving it will lead to a wave of support, accompanied by cash donations.
Another trophy for mounting in Palin’s den?
“Who is Shlomo Shamir?”
Pap Shamir’s brother?
Sounds like a ruse.
I would trust the Muslims about as much as the Nigerian prince who needs to move his $20 million with my help.
Maybe they are looking for a closer place to Ground Zero, just to be more in-your-face...
Ooh, hadn’t thought of that Hiroshima example! Talk about hitting the libs where they live!
Or how about this one: A U.S. Cavalry museum at Wounded Knee. You know, to build bridges.
Nitpicking here, but it says “community center”, not “Mosque at ground zero”.
Wondering if they are still going to build a mosque.
