This issue will remain on the front burner . . . I can think of no better cause to fight for as we approach the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks . . .

The building to house the proposed Cordoba House - a.k.a. Ground Zero Mosque - sustained damage on 9/11 when landing gear and other debris from one of the hijacked jetliners struck its roof.

Ground Zero Mosque: Who's For, Who's Against - Harry Reid is against it, Sarah Palin is very against it, and Obama can’t seem to decide . . . a break down of where politicians stand on the issue.

Newt Weighs In

Newt Gingrich believes that the choice to build this structure so close to Ground Zero was a political decision designed to send a statement and thus must be viewed in that context, rather than simply in the context of whether a house of worship should be allowed to be built (there are over 100 mosques in New York City and over 1000 in the United States).

The construction of this 13-story building is, in fact, a statement of Islamic triumphalism rather than a message of religious tolerance. Consider:

The project's offensive name: the Cordoba Initiative is a reference to Cordoba, Spain, a Spanish city that was captured by a Muslim army and became the capital of Spain during its 500-year occupation by the Moors. The name Cordoba is still seen today by radical Islamists as a symbol of Islamic superiority.

The Moorish mosque in Cordoba, Spain.

The proposed date of completion - the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks - is a clear signal that the construction is supposed to be seen in connection with the attacks.

The project's backer, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf:

  • has stated that U.S. policies "were an accessory" to the attacks on 9/11 and that "Osama bin Laden is made in the USA."
  • has also refused to repudiate Hezbollah, the terrorist organization behind the 1983 Beirut bombing that killed 243 U.S. Marines and continues to rain down missiles into Israel from its base in southern Lebanon.
  • is an apologist for Shariah Law, the Islamic law that is used to justify the execution of homosexuals, honor killings, and death sentences carried out by stoning, which he claims is compliant with the U.S. Constitution.

Follow The Money:

The American Society of Muslim Advancement - backers of the Cordoba House - much of the financing is also coming from groups with known ties to radical Islamist and terrorist factions. Among these:

  • The Perdana Global Peace Organization, best known for their participation in the summer’s “freedom flotilla” to Gaza.
  • The former director of the Alavi Foundation, which is currently facing federal charges for a shady relationship with a known financier of weapons of mass destruction research in Iran.
Other project backers have gone so far as to publicly declare support for the Hamas regime in Palestine and have links to many other radical groups such as the Islamic Circle of North America.

Sacred Ground

Ground Zero is as significant to our Nation's identity as Arlington National Cemetery or the Gettysburg battlefield. The construction of a mosque in a building that sustained damage in the September 11th terror attacks is more than an affront to our sensibilities; the Cordoba Mosque project represents no less than an attempt to erect an al Qaeda Victory Monument right on the site of their greatest battlefield achievement. This is the equivalent to inserting a Shinto shrine right inside the Arizona Memorial, dedicated to the Japanese pilots who lost their lives during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The fastest way I know to piss people off is to mess with religion - it's like pouring hot oil onto a blazing fire.

I guarantee you the Democrats & their willing minions in the left-leaning mainstream media wish this thing had never come up, and now that it's here they wish it would just go away . . . but it won't and we won't let it go away. . .




  1. Many fail to understand the supremacist ideology of Islam and recognize, that the construction of a mosque, particularly at Ground Zero, will be seen by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels on their march for reaching the final goal: the subjugation of all others to Islam and Sharia law.
    German writer Thomas Mann once said that "Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil" At that time, Mann was referring to the advent of Nazism in Germany. His statement today is a wake-up call for all of us to tell the truth. We must find the courage and commitment to act against this invasion if we want to keep our freedom.

  2. This Cordoba Project is simply a big steaming pile.

    I'm hoping the Unions put it in permanent hiatus. Better story that way. Better Statement that way.

    It's the regular Folks out there that will stop this thing, not the touchy-feely left.

  3. I posted a good solution to this issue a few weeks ago:

  4. And if I might chime in, the reality is that we are at war with an ideology that is steeped and intimately associated with Islam. The fact that the "majority" of American muslims "disagree" with terrorism has no more to to with the validity of this fact than Obama claiming to be a Christian means that he practices a traditional western evangelicalism.

    It is what it is...

    ...and as the IDF Major I listened too once said, "You know in Israel we have had to learn that 5% of 1.5 billion is a pretty big number."

    Right to build this beeotch have nothing to do with the "rightness" of building this beeotch...

  5. We would have a lot less trouble dealing with these people if we treated them as what they are and not what they want us to think they are. Islam is not a religion and their mosques are only a place of prayer for them as an after thought. The mosque is their command centre for a totalitarian system of dominance where they make their plans to conquer the infidel (that is us) and the world. For them to build this mosque especially with the name Cordoba anywhere near Ground Zero would be a huge victory for them on their way to what they want. The total domination of the world.

    Here is the web address for the best description of Islam I have seen. It explains Islam and its goals is a very readable way. It is worth looking at. Sorry I do not know how to put links into posts.
