Bloomberg willing to turn a blind eye to a supporter of Islamic terrorism?Topics: Political News and commentaries
Dan Riehl points to some useful idiocy from NYC Mayor Bloomberg, noting that yes, we have freedom of religion in American. I get that. But with so many charitable organizations that have proved to be terror-supporting, and Europe's issues with radical clerics using their mosques to fuel intolerance and hate, this is a ridiculous comment.
NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate a mosque that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.As Dan goes on to point out, since when do we hesitate investigating Christian groups if they are thought to have extremist ties? The would be imam has ties to the flotilla and other groups, but Bloomberg would turn a blind eye to any activity at any mosque? To do so is indeed simply stupid. Is Bloomberg somehow unaware that imam Faisal refuses to condemn violent jihad groups as terrorists? Then there's that nagging question of just where did imam Faisal come up with $4.85 million in cash? Where will he get the $150 million to build the mosque? And then there's those questionable statements in Arabic.
Bloomberg was asked Monday about GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio's demands last week that Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo investigate the mosque being developed near the Sept. 11 attack site.
The mayor has defended the mosque plans before. On Monday, he said investigating or vetting religious organizations goes against what the nation stands for.
It's as though New York City's mayor has his own hidden agenda for supporting an Islamic mosque that New York City voters disapprove of by an almost 2- to-1 ratio. Is Bloomberg the mayor of NYC or, like Barack Obama, now considers his primary mission to be Muslim outreach!
