Ground Zero Mosque
Posted May 19, 2010on:
This is an outrage! Every American should rise up and demand that this not be allowed. First the memorial to the the heros of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania is unmistakably shaped like the Muslim crescent rather than the “open circle” it’s defenders say it is, and now a 13 story Muslim mosque is being built so close to 9/11 ground zero that some of the debris from the falling towers hit the building that stood on that spot.

Ground Zero Mosque

Political Correctness: While New York City OKs construction of a “monster mosque” at ground zero, the feds pay rent to a D.C. mosque tied to the Pentagon attack. Have we gone totally soft?
Imagine on the 10th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, we let the Japanese erect a cultural center at the site of that attack. Exactly. It would never happen.
So why are Manhattan officials bowing to demands by a group called the American Society for Muslim Advancement to open — on of all days, Sept. 11, 2011 — a 13-story shrine to Islam in the shadow of the beautiful skyscrapers terrorists turned to ashes in the name of Islam? Why aren’t they suggesting they do their Islamic “advancement” someplace else? Why of all places there?
Aren’t officials at least curious why these supposedly “patriotic” Muslim activists named their planned $100 million mosque after the Great Mosque of Cordoba — a legacy of Muslim Spain representing the zenith of Islamic dominance?
There may be nothing to it — except that a radical Islamic school in Virginia, raided by the feds after 9/11, also goes by that name. Cordoba University’s founder was recently named an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror case. Symbolism is not lost on such jihadists.
New Yorkers should by now have built from that giant hole at ground zero a single, mammoth tower as a one-finger salute to radical Islam and all the terrorists it inspires. Instead, they’re building an Islamic tower that Muslim fanatics from around the world will no doubt use as a memorial to their fallen “martyrs” and what they did to us on that “blessed day” of 9/11.
“It’s a slap in our face!” said Nelly Braginsky, whose son Alexander was murdered on 9/11.
It’s also a monumental sign of weakness. Right now, our enemy is laughing at us. And picture this sickening scenario: 9/11 mastermind KSM getting to see workers breaking ground on the ground zero mosque, as Attorney General Eric Holder escorts him to his Manhattan show trial. If we can’t keep even ground zero sacred and free of PC, we truly are doomed to suffer another. And another.
This latest outrage follows one over the Flight 93 National Memorial, which also made a paean to Islam. The original design for the Shanksville, Pa., memorial — called a “Crescent of Embrace” — featured a pathway in the shape of a crescent moon, a prominent symbol in Islam. Only protests from the families of the victims of the flight — downed by Muslim hijackers shouting “Allahu Akbar!” — forced its redesign.
