Statement of Debra Burlingame, Co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America, in Response to President Obama's Remarks about the Ground Zero Mosque
911 Families Stunned Presidents Support of Mosque at Ground Zero
New York, NY, Aug. 14 -- Barack Obama has abandoned America at the place where America's heart was broken nine years ago, and where her true values were on display for all to see. Since that dark day, Americans have been asked to bear the burden of defending those values, again and again and again. Now this president declares that the victims of 9/11 and their families must bear another burden. We must stand silent at the last place in America where 9/11 is still remembered with reverence or risk being called religious bigots.
Muslims have worshipped in New York without incident both before and after the attacks of 9/11. This controversy is not about religious freedom. 9/11 was more than a "deeply traumatic event," it was an act of war. Building a 15-story mosque at Ground Zero is a deliberately provocative act that will precipitate more bloodshed in the name of Allah. Those who continue to target and kill American civilians and U.S. troops will see it as a symbol of their historic progress at the site of their most bloody victory. Demolishing a building that was damaged by wreckage from one of the hijacked planes in order to build a mosque and Islamic Center will further energize those who regard it as a ratification of their violent and divinely ordered mission: the spread of shariah law and its subjugation of all free people, including secular Muslims who come to this country fleeing that medieval ideology, which destroys lives and crushes the human spirit.
We are stunned by the president's willingness to disregard what Americans should be proud of: our enduring generosity to others on 9/11--a day when human decency triumphed over human depravity. On that day, when 3,000 of our fellow human beings were killed in barbaric act of raw religious intolerance unlike this country had ever seen, Americans did not turn outward with hatred or violence, we turned to each other, armed with nothing more than American flags and countless acts of kindness. In a breathtakingly inappropriate setting, the president has chosen to declare our memories of 9/11 obsolete and the sanctity of Ground Zero finished. No one who has lived this history and felt the sting of our country's loss that day can truly believe that putting our families through more wrenching heartache can be an act of peace.
We will honor the memory of our loved ones. We will protect our children, whose lives will never be the same. We will not stand silent.

People say this president is incompetent. I think he’s evil. And his support of the mosque proves it.
Don't they pay attention???
The Obamas have always said that "they don't give Christmas gifts to the children" and "they don't give birthday gifts" which I am told is what Muslims do.
No Christmas presents.
Tree with Mao on it.
No church to go to on Sunday.
Rev Wright is an ex Muslim
50% of his "g-d America" church was Muslim
Records in Indonesia show him taking in Arabic Muslim classes reserved for the most feverent believers .. His school records there list him as "Muslim" and "Indonesian" and his mother listed him on her passport application as Barack Husseim Obama (Soebarkah) ....
Egyptian minister: Obama told me he is a Muslim
""The Muslim Call to Prayer is one of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth" - said Barack Obama to the New York Times
http://infidelsarecool.com/2008/04/07/jeremiah-wright-former-muslim/ Allah is greater than any description I testify that there is no deity except for Allah I testify that Muhammad is a Messenger of Allah Make haste towards the prayer Make haste towards the worship Prayer is better than sleep Allah is the greatest! There is no deity except for Allah
As others noted:
From the NYT article (original now scrubbed!):
"Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, ... Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset. ************************
I too thought he was reciting the call to morning prayers.
But, it seems to others more knowledgeable than me, that this call is also an oath to Islam and that if you say it, or wish to convert, this is what you say and THIS IS WHAT he did say:
The first few lines from the "call to prayer" is the shahada. The shahada is not from the koran. It is from the hadiths. Furthermore, it is the SWEARING OF AN OATH to islam. Non-Muslims wishing to convert to Islam do so by a public recitation of the creed.
It is also an oath EVEN if you are tricked or forced into reciting it and even if you wish to renounce it, you can NOT do so without fear for your life.
It goes like this: "Ash-hadu -an-la-ilaha illal-laha, wa ash-hadu anna Mohammad-an Abdo-hu wa Rasulo-uhu wa ash-hadu anna moulana ali-un vasi-un wa vazir-ah.
It literally means: "I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and I bear witness that Mohammad is Allah's servant and His Messenger, and Ali is his successor vasi and minister vazir".
And it ALSO means that obama knew exactly what he was saying, knew exactly what it meant, and had no qualms about calling it the most beautiful sound on earth. As with most things, it was a message to his brethren and a finger in the eye of what obama considers stupid Americans.
If after what you have seen; if after what you now know about obama and his policies, here and elsewhere, and you still question whether obama is a muslim, you are too stupid to live.
Two posts below this one-
Sadly, I expected this.
“People say this president is incompetent. I think hes evil”
I agree with you. He is accomplishing a great deal in this country, all negative, destructive and ultimately evil.
I just hope we are waking up fast enough to avoid the final marial-law edict that locks the country into an islamo-marxist dictatorship like Iran, etc.
EVERYTHING about Obama has been crystal clear for at least two years.
I hope the towel head does not come up with the money. He needs a 100M. Even Dubai is broke and has stopped conctruction. And the Immam does not have the money. He blew the wad on buying the place. JMO
LOL!... Seeing how it was Andy who missed the ‘embargoed to 7:30 a.m.’ note at the top the email Debra sent us all, I’ll forgive him.
I’m amazed they are stunned!
We have some hope with the November elections of frustrating this evil agenda.
But what is there to stop Obama from nullifying the elections and declaring himself president for life or sumptin?
Yes, we have the Constitution, but as we have seen, the Constitution doesn’t matter to this evil gang.
I can’t believe it. He should have kept his mouth shut. He really doesn’t think much of the USA. I hope this disaster for a president doesn’t get another term. As crazy as the liberals are, they will vote for him just because he is NOT a conservative.
I’m not stunned.
Only 70% of Americans are against it. You think that’s supposed to mean something to Obama? Maybe if it were 95% he’d reconsider. Maybe.
“But what is there to stop Obama from nullifying the elections and declaring himself president for life or sumptin?”
That’s the key trigger of a Second Amendment Solution. If he goes full Dictator on us we’ll have war.
It’s as simple and sad as that, I think.
I’d pay a ransom to have whatever came out of Obama’s mouth on video when he first hearrd of the 9-11 attacks. Someone should ask him about that. Exactly what were his thoughts at that moment?
They are “stunned!”? How could they be? Did they honestly think that our “cultural muslim/econmical marxist” president would stand against this act of spitting in the face of America?
I think that every candidate should be asked their position on this subject and then let AMERICANS decide whether or not they want that person in office.
American voters, all!!! November is coming!!! Remember November and vote to destroy the entire traitor Democrat Party and “Hate America” Potus Barack Hussein (Muslim) Obama!!!
As 0bama candidly lets what he really thinks begin to slip out of his mouth, the vast overwhelming majority of Americans will also be “Stunned”.
ALL that this man has done, where he has been, and what he REALLY thinks has been meticulously hidden from the public view.
The so called “Free” Press is main Enemy of America, because they have willingly been an accomplice to this manipulation.
