The 9/11 Mosque's Peace CharadeTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam, War on Terror - the issues.
The image tells the story that Islamists want Americans to forget, and they want to build a symbol of Muslim dominance on the hallowed ground of the 9/11 victims - using the charade of a phony peace outreach in the form of a giant mosque.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer pose several highly pertinent - yet unanswered questions about Muslim's plans to build this huge mosque just two blocks from Ground Zero - an insult to the victims of the 9/11 attacks and a slap in the face of every American:
How does building a giant mosque at Ground Zero address the problem of moderate Muslims not speaking out against terrorism? How does this mosque honor those who were "harmed" - i.e., brutally murdered - on September 11? And perhaps most important of all, whom does a mosque at 9/11 really honor: the Americans who lost their lives, or the jihadis who murdered them?In answering these questions, and more, Geller and Spencer write:
A massive fifteen-story mosque and Islamic Center going up in what was once the shadow of the World Trade Center claims to offer "the opposite statement to what happened on 9/11." The Center organizers, the America Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), have worked hard in the media to portray themselves as Islamic moderates working for peace on the exact spot where their belligerent coreligionists perpetrated murder and mayhem in the name of their religion.Continue reading here...
But the words and deeds of the leader of the effort, the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, suggests a more ominous reality: Abdul Rauf is a master of deceptive, Orwellian use of language, manifesting a deep contempt for non-Muslims and full accord with the supremacist goals of the 9/11 hijackers.
So anxious were they to secure the location at Ground Zero that a Muslim real estate company paid $4.85 million in cash for the building, with part coming from Abdul Rauf's other Islamic group, the Cordoba Initiative. It is unnerving - the deliberate speed and anxiousness that the leader of the American Society for Muslim Advancement has demonstrated in working to open a mosque at the gaping wound of Ground Zero. He claims that it will heal that wound.
But how will it do that? How will a mosque, the place where jihadis go for spiritual sustenance, at Ground Zero help stop jihad terrorism? Even the name of the initiative - Cordoba - speaks volumes. While Islamic Spain is held up today as a proto-multiculturalist paradise, in reality non-Muslims there suffered under the discrimination prescribed in Islamic law for dhimmis, non-believers who were subjugated as inferiors and denied equality of rights.
[...] Abdul Rauf also has unsavory associations with pro-Sharia groups. Journalist Alyssa A. Lappen reports that "whenever Feisal first considered building a mosque across from Ground Zero, he had the idea firmly in mind by 2004, when he wrote What's Right with Islam. The book was translated into many languages. In Indonesia's Bahasa, its title translates as "The Call from the WTC Rubble." Rauf promoted the book in December 2007 at a Kuala Lumpur gathering of Hizb ut Tahrir - an organization banned in Germany since 2003, and also outlawed in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, among other places - and ideologically akin to the MB.
Both seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law (sharia), and eventually impose Islam and sharia law worldwide." The "MB" is the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamic organization from which come Al-Qaeda and Hamas. The Brotherhood is dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within." (Emphasis added)
Plans for a 13-storey mosque at Ground Zero provoke anti-Muslim backlash
Anger grows over plans for mosque near Ground Zero (Islam had a history of building mosques on top of the holy places of other religions as a symbol of Muslim dominance)
