Promoters of Ground Zero mosque are Ameriphobic

Among the prime planners of a $100 million Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero, it’s not just Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf who is visiting the Middle East this summer at U.S. taxpayer expense. The State Department is also about to send Rauf’s wife and Cordoba Initiative fellow director, Daisy Khan, on her own taxpayer-funded “public diplomacy” trip to the United Arab Emirates. Khan is scheduled to visit the UAE from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2, overlapping there with Rauf, for whom it will be the final leg of a three-country trip including Bahrain and Qatar.

Now, meanwhile, while awaiting her departure, Daisy is in the United States demanding constitutional rights and ripping dissenters of the Obama Mosque on national tv as being hateful, islamophobic, and intolerant for exercising their constitutional rights to oppose the mosque.

Can you really believe this?  The United States of America is funding this couple to tour Arab countries “to engage foreign audiences and build people-to-people ties” and to “discuss their experiences as Muslims living and working in the United States.”

He’s on video talking about America having more “blood on our hands than al Queda” and she’s showing the love by calling us bigots and islamophobes, can you imagine what they are saying about the United States in the Arab countries and on tax money?

Wow.  Just wow.

The protest in New York City on Sunday was about 10 to 1 against the mosque. And so now New Yorkers are bigots and haters?

Insanity.

America is the victim of 9/11…..not islam

I want to move on but the issue of the mosque keeps weighing on my mind.

The constitution allows it but mercy constrains it.  As long as there’s a mother, father, child, a family member of the dead who oppose it, it is cruel to build it.

First of all, the freedom of religion argument applies in a broad sense, but those who are on that bandwagon don’t give a damn about freedom of religion.  They know it.  They know we know it  If you will notice, it’s the very same people and media voices who are always complaining about a manger scene or somebody saying Merry Christmas, a cross on the side of the road or a hillside, forbidding the mention of the word Jesus in a prayer at a football game…..anything.  They hate religion (or at least Christianity and Judaism) so give me a break on that point.  It’s a thoroughly bogus argument anyway because they have been using the space for worship and prayer for a while now and can continue to do so until the end of time.  Oon second thought, I don’t think there is a freedom of religion issue at all.  It’s all about building the “monument.”

This is a manipulation tool much like the racial profiling was on the Arizona bill,, just a big scam to engage the emotions and prevent a rational discussion.

The president goes out, and once again, he rips open a wound that is trying to heal.  He promised to unite, but has done nothing but divide.  He seems to enjoy it.  He then goes on vacation.

I will admit that the proposed site of the Obama Ground Zero Mosque is not really on Ground Zero.  Just very, very close,  Close enough to be impacted by a large piece of the plane that flew into the south tower. Do you really think they would not build it right on top of the site if they could?  Looks like they got as close as they possibly could.

But let’s get real here.  Who are the victims in this scenario?  The victims are those poor souls who did nothing more than go to work one morning and never went home again.  And not only them but dead at the pentagon and the dead aboard the flight that went down in a Pennsylvania field – no survivors.   And as long as there is even one family member who objects to building what will look like a monument — not to the victims — but to the perpetrators, it is a cruel and callous endeavor.

They flew those planes into buildings shouting Allah Akbar, and thereby associating these perverted acts with islam forever and you would think islam somehow has been victimized.  Hardly.  If this country had been somehow persecuting islam, these men never would have been allowed in the country.  So trusting and stupid we are.  And they had to steal the planes from us that they used to exact this evil deed on America.  Box cutters and stolen planes.  I don’t think there is anybody who will deny these deeds were evil.  We tolerate different religions, but we don’t tolerate evil.

There are many mosques in NYC, at least two in lower Manhattan.  They were there, they are still there, and nobody is trying to remove them or keep any person from practicing their religion.  No. body.  And everybody knows that, too.  But to blatantly construct a new 15 story building that can have a observation deck on the southwest side or on the roof and look down onto the hole that was the world trade center is heartless on their part and defiant as well.

Will the call to prayer ring out five times a day over loud speakers? I don’t know yet whether it’s a convention center or a mosque or both.  They keep changing it. It’s just so ironic to think of the most intolerant religion on earth wanting to use our tolerance to gloat about what they did.

So the constitution allows it but honor and mercy prohibit it.  I would expect the promoters of the Cordoba Initiative/Obama Ground Zero Mosque to back off and in the spirit of peace and humility, not continue with this project.

Finally, I really would have expected the president to say something similar.  Or I would hope that he had enough compassion and understanding of the fact that this attack was the one and only attack on our homeland in history, and how there are those who are still grieving on a personal level.
