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

September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City: V...

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.

AP forbids use of term “Ground Zero Mosque” – Deutsche Bank and other buildings that surround Ground Zero

The Associated Press has issued instructions to their reporters and employees that henceforth they are not to use the term “Ground Zero Mosque.”

I thought I would post this illustration of how the landing gear of the plane that hit the south tower ended up on top of the Burlington Coat Factory Building, site of the proposed Obama Ground Zero Mosque.  The top picture is the airplane part shown in an elevator, I think being removed from the building.  It fell two floors down through the roof.

 

Another Ground Zero building – Deutsch Bank Building:

In 2006, bones of victims were found on the roof of the Deutsche Bank Building

located just on the south side of the site, presumably from the south tower as it collapsed. Tombstone at Ground Zero, written in 2008, tells the saga of the building.  I don’t believe it’s been demolished yet even after all these years.

I’m glad I don’t live in NYC.  It is not a safe place to be.

Facts about the property designated for the GZ mosque

The president’s endorsement of the ground zero mosque on Friday night moved this up to the top of the pile for me.  So I start digging.

Obama makes a statement firmly in favor of the mosque, invoking the constitution, which he only does when it benefits him, terrorists, muslims, or illegals.  (This is true.  Check it out.)  He can cancel the Day of Prayer, have the religious symbols covered up at Georgetown University, his justice department can sue a state, and hinder freedom of speech at every hand and not a peep about the constitution.

Here is his statement, short version:

But let me be clear: as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.

It is interesting to note his tone of voice and inflections here.  “….just as much as anybody else in this country.”  Very defiant I would say.

But he also said that ground zero was “hallowed ground.”  So by asserting  this, and then endorsing the mosque anyway, he is blatantly stating that he does not care if it is hallowed ground, it does not matter to him.  Do you see any empathy in him here?  He wants empathy from his supreme court judges, where it has no place, but he has none.

But I am getting emotional.  Emotion aside, I want to state some simple facts.

Notice the president said they have a right to build on “private property.”

Others also referenced it a private property.

In a nut shell:

  • It is not on private property, at least not all of it.
  • This is two tracts of land owned by two owners.
  • It will take both properties to build their building.
  • One property they bought, one property they lease.
  • One time you read about it, there will be no mosque in the building, the next time there will.
  • Imam Abdul Rauf and Sharif El Gamal are teamed up to build the GZ mosque.  hmmmm
  • Sharif El Gamal of Soho Properties bought 45-47 Park Avenue in 2009 for $4.8 million.
  • Sharif El Gamal purchased a lease for $700,000 for 49-51 Park Avenue.  This property is owned by Con Edison a public utility.  It is being appraised for a Possible sale to Soho Properties, Mr. El Gamal’s company.
  • “The sale proposal will go to the Public Service Commission, where it could possibly face a vote by a five-member board controlled by Gov. Paterson.” Quote from the NYP. (Watch what happens to Governor Paterson.  There has already been a media blitz trying to get him to resign.  See if there is another one.)
  • Part of one of the planes that flew into the World Trade Center fell through the roof of this building.
  • Just a few short years ago, Sharif El-Gamal and his brother Sammy El-Gamal of SOHO Properties the Developers of the Ground Zero Mosque were waiting tables in New York City. Sharif El-Gamal was waiting tables at Serafina’s Restaurant in New York City and Sammy El-Gamal was waiting tables at Tao Restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan NY, from there they both broke into the real estate business by renting apartments on commission, they were not selling any properties.

Does this seem strange to anybody?  Where did they suddenly get this kind of money?  Who is financing Soho Properties?

Why are they so intent on building the mosque right there in that spot and dedicating it on September 11, 2011?

How is it the intolerant demand tolerance?  Why would we acquiesce to an enemy of our way of life, and if they were in charge, there would be no freedom or tolerance.  We would all be muslim or else.  We will not fall for this manipulation.  They can build someplace else.

Here’s an in-depth breakdown of what has gone on. I haven’t heard or read anything about this from the mainstream, have you?

The New York Post has some facts about it, too.

H/T to a blogger who has written a post and pulled it all together so much better than I have.

I just couldn’t resist my bullet points for quick reference.  🙂

Workers refusing to work on mega-mosque

Workers pledging not to work on ground zero mosque

Below is an excerpt from the site he is referring to in this video, Blue Collar Corner.

Here are the names of union and non-union tradesman who refuse to work the site of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque. We feel we have been betrayed by our civic leaders and elected officials as they allow the Cordoba Initiative Group build their Mega-Mosque on top of the ashes of the 3,ooo innocents who were slaughtered on 911. DSC00560

The attackers yelled “Allah Ahkbar” as they destroyed our symbols of economic power and liberty filled with Americans.

Rise up, America.  We don’t have to take this insult.  And just as this guy expected, our president has now publicly supported this project.  This is the last straw.

Could we get a little tolerance here?

Greg Gutfeld to open gay bar near proposed Ground Zero mosque…..Or Grind Zero, featuring non-alcoholic drinks and “suspicious packages.”

I just heard a hilarious segment on Glenn Beck with Greg Gutfeld discussing his proposal for outreach and tolerance on the part of Islam toward Islamic gay men.  This is sort of an extension of my earlier suggestion that if they really want to promote diversity, there are many ways they could do this.  The tolerance is always demanded of others, but they show no tolerance whatsoever.

I’ll post a video as soon as it shows up somewhere, but here’s the back story:

Gutfeld says:

“So, the Muslim investors championing the construction of the new mosque near Ground Zero claim it’s all about strengthening the relationship between the Muslim and non-Muslim world.

As an American, I believe they have every right to build the mosque – after all, if they buy the land and they follow the law – who can stop them?

Which is, why, in the spirit of outreach, I’ve decided to do the same thing.

I’m announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.

This is not a joke. I’ve already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.”

Here it is:

(You mecca me hot!)

On top of this, Beck had a very revealing show today showing the background and connections of imam Abdul Rauf. Rauf is not a nice person.  Not very effing tolerant either.  I think he should be thrown out of the United States.

Did you know that the United States government – the State Department – is PAYING to send Rauf on an “outreach” mission?  Wonder if he’ll get enough to help him pay for the mosque.

I guess the separation of church and state does not mean the separation of mosque and state?  Let’s see, how long do you think it will be before the State Department pays for Franklin Graham to go to the middle east to promote “understanding:” of Christianity?

“This ain’t the first I’ve seen this dog and pony show…honey….”
