Mosque at Ground Zero
Qordoba Initiative, the organization behind plan to built the mosque that will be merely 13 storey high is a private property and there is no reason why someone should oppose the construction of the mosque.
But rabid anti-Islamic forces are bent upon doing it.
But I don’t thing that beyond mere rabble rousing these organizations can actually stop the construction of the grand mosque and a well established community center.
Imagine the American response in 1950 if the Japanese government sought to erect a shrine to its World War II Emperor in Pearl Harbor, right next to the sunken wreckage of the USS Arizona.
Would “outrage” be strong enough to describe the response?
Fast forward to 2010.
Less than nine years after the worst terrorist attack on American soil in our history, an imam who blames America for the 9/11 attack wants to construct a 13 story mosque and Islamic center 600 feet from “Ground Zero.”
This is an outrage!
Public opinion forced many New York officials, as well as officials in the Obama administration, to reconsider locating a civilian trial for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, in New York.
Now we need a tidal wave of public opinion to flood New York officials telling them that allowing a mosque to be built at ground zero is a slap in the face of the thousands of families who lost loved ones in that Jihadist attack.
This is why ACT! For America is launching a nationwide petition that he will deliver to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, urging him and other New York officials to oppose the building of this mosque in this location.
9/11 survivors and their families are in disbelief at the insensitivity being expressed by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his supporters who want this mosque at ground zero.
They are astonished that an imam who endorses sharia law, the same law system that motivated the Jihadists to blow up the World Trade Center, would be so brazen as to erect a mosque at ground zero.
There are many other places such a mosque could be located.
What’s more, guess what day they are planning for the grand opening of the mosque?
September 11, 2011: the 10th year anniversary of the Jihadist atrocity.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! This grotesque symbolism, this spitting in the face of the families of the victims of 9/11, is going too far!
As an American citizen I hope the American administration will confiscate the funds allocated to building this mosque and convert it to the budget for rebuilding the World Trade Center in New York and prevent the building of a mosques in the US. There is no real need for them and also because of the seriousness of being a breeding ground for extremist ideology of terrorism and hatred of the other and practiced public preaching, which is an assault on the freedom of others and their religion.
