Another Mosque – Another Shrine
The people of the United States are so afraid of offending anyone that they allow justice to be perverted. Every location where the Islamic have attacked the infidels they erect a shrine; Jerusalem, Mecca, etc. Let us look beyond this, even if this is not enough, to hard facts.
The first fact is that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Islamic cleric is not what he seems to be or what he tries to portray. The mosque project isn’t as well. He wants to show himself as a moderate, but there is reason to doubt it. He says, “The issue of terrorism is a very complex question.” So is his relationship with Islamic extremists.
He published a book with the help of two of the Muslim Brotherhood, which are openly terroristic organizations. He will not say that the Hamas is an terrorist organization, and he makes light of terroristic acts. He has even said that the USA was an “Accessory” to 9/11.
Even the liberal Anti-Defamation League has even taken a stand against the project. But what about mayor Bloomberg? He celebrates what the mosque stands for and backs Rauf. We know where he stands on Israel.
One of the major investors in the proposed Islamic Center is a Long Island medical clinic owner who has donated to a charity that had ties to the Hamas. They were shut down because of their links.
Do they have a right to build where they have chosen according to our Constitution? Yes, but what is this telling the people of the USA? If they had any concern for the future acceptance of Islam in the USA, or good relations, they would consider relocating. This was the worst act of political violence ever committed, and Islamic terrorism, on our soil. They want to rub this in the face of Americans who by our own tolerance allow our enemies to prosper in our midst.
Ground Zero still remains a desolate hole in the ground in Manhattan rather than being rebuilt to its former glory. If the wonderful accepting mayor of New York City, Bloomberg, wants to rebuild something why doesn’t he start with Ground Zero?
I guess we have to wait while Rauf travels the mid-east for the USA State Department as an emissary to build relations with the Islamic nations. Let us think about this. His third fully paid for trip. Can you imagine Billy Graham being paid to travel Europe to build relations with Christian nations? While Rauf was doing his duty to the country he even held religious services. I guess the separation of church and state only applies if you’re Christian.
