A wrong-headed New York City panel yesterday cleared the way for the construction near Ground-Zero of a mosque that has caused a politically correct uproar over "religious freedom" about a despicable religion that affords no religious freedom in its teachings and makes no secret of their desire to exterminate the Jews and the state of Israel. "SHAME on YOU!" was shouted at the jewish Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, when he praised the decision. Even the Anti-Defamation League, the nation's most prominent Jewish civil rights group, well known for advocating religious freedom spoke out against this mosque saying, "In the former shadow of the World Trade Center, it will disrespect the memory of those killed at the hands of Islamic terrorists fueled by a hateful book that guides every Muslim." Is America losing its mind!
It says a lot about the people behind this scheme that they had the bad taste even to propose building a mosque in such a place, but to describe it as they have, as "a tribute to the victims", is beyond bad taste and shows a profound contempt for those who died or are they referring to the murders that took over and piloted those planes into the Twin Towers? Yet how typical is Islam with its own hair-trigger sensibility to the slightest imagined insult to do something so arrogant and so insensitive. And yet this obnoxious plan was welcomed by politicians and civic leaders eager to show how tolerant they are at other people's expense. Is it possible to be astonished (as I am) but not surprised?
The organisation behind this scheme is called the Cordoba Initiative and this 13 story edifice to hatred will be called Cordoba House. This name is so obvious to anybody with a knowledge of Muslim history and their modus operandi.....so listen up. Cordoba is the city in Spain where Muslims built their Grand Mosque (on top of a church) as a symbol of their conquest of Spain, just as they did when they conquered Jerusalem and Constantinople. This Ground-Zero mosque is intended to serve the same purpose. Building mosques on "sacred ground" allows Islam to show the world its supremacy over the Infidels. They know how insulting and offensive it is and Americans smile, that misguided Judeo-Christian smile, and turn their cheek one more time in the name of "tolerance" when none is returned in kind.
They also know that once its built it will be there forever, as a permanent affront to all Americans, there gloating in triumph and a major bridgehead in an ongoing stealth jihad. That's how the Muslim world will see it and that's exactly how it will confirm what they always suspected, that America is a soft country, a decadent country, crippled by political correctness, confused and guilt-ridden, with a President that has no backbone or pride. On top of that, they plan to open this "victory" mosque next year on September 11th, the 10th Anniversary of this atrocity. Is that tasteless enough for you?
The Way I See It....the American Center for Law and Justice will challenge the panel's decision by a petition alleging that they "acted arbitrarily and abused its discretion." I trust they can stir up enough public anger to stop this disgraceful plan as well as telling the Muslim ass-kissing politicians that enough is enough.....that this is one insult too many. There is plenty of room in America to build their mosque some where else, somewhere perhaps more appropriate to the spirit of their religion...like DEATH VALLEY!
