NYC Mosque - and the Impending September 11 Date!

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." - Abraham Lincoln
It is not enough that homegrown terrorists are popping up like weeds but we are about to allow the building of a monument to the destruction of the World Trade Center. The mosque in Virginia had a Radical Imam Anwar al Awlaki that supported Major Malik Nadal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter. Now we have Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf described by the MSM as a “moderate”. So what exactly is a moderate Imam? If this Imam Rauf truly intends to “unite” the Muslims and the American people then you would think that he would agree to build his mosque else where away from ground zero.
Very few Muslims have spoken against building the mosque at ground zero even with Governor David Paterson offering to help find a suitable area at a different location. When the World Trade Center was bombed using our own commercial airlines on September 11, 2001, 3000 lives were lost during and after the attack by Islamic terrorists. We know for a fact that they were “devout Muslims”. Therefore it is an affront to build the Islamic mosque anywhere near ground zero. The Ground Zero Area should be a memorial to the victims and heroes of this devastating attack.
It is hard to fathom that there would be anyone in America not understanding that this mosque, if built, would be like rubbing salt in a wound. What is more unnerving is that we have a president who is supporting this vile action. Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a staunch supporter of this project and seems to be determined to have the mosque built. Meanwhile, Imam Rauf has been asked by the State Department to be the “ambassador” to the Middle East using American taxpayer money. Knowing what we know about this Imam Rauf and his reaction to the 911 attacks, saying that we were an “accessory” to the murders, should give us all reason to question his motives. This administration is totally blind to the obvious and totally deaf to the voice of the American people.
The $100 million project renamed Park51, with 13 floors will have spaces for restaurants, bookstores, a swimming pool, and auditorium and of course “art”. Not only is this mosque fertile ground for sharia law but it is the perfect place to instill liberal views to budding artists. We should not forget that when Pope Benedict made some “insulting” remarks that Islam had been spread by violence he was severely criticized. So we know for a fact that a Christian can not speak his mind about Islam without retribution, but a Muslim can do and say whatever he likes. In fact, it is my understanding that the New York City Muslims stop and pray on the public streets of the city and even have a website with the prayer times. The Greek Orthodox Church, St Nicholas that was destroyed during the 911 attack has yet to be rebuilt. Wonder how much religious tolerance we will endure before we really take action against this peaceful invasion.
