Mosque at Ground Zero
http://bikyamasr.com/wordpress/?p=12895 Mosque at Ground Zero in n New York by the Cordoba Initiative is creating controversy. Extremists in the US are opposing a plan to build a mosque in the proximity of ground zero, saying that it denotes Islamization of the US. The worst thing is that the Islamophobic organizations opposing the plan to build the mosque shows that their objection is not just for the mosque but is actually for the Muslim community and the religion of Islam.
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.
Petition from ACT to stop the Ground Zero Mosque – 9/11 mosque at the Twin Towers site said
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.

It took me awhile to grasp if the author is actually in favor or against this project.
Anyhow, …., thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Not sure many people outside of New York (or even inside) know about this ‘idea’.

Sharia is a LAW.
A country can’t be run by 2 sets of laws for 2 factions of different people.
The Constitution is a LAW.
One has to CHOOSE.
Islam may be a religion, but it REQUIRES adherence to SHARIA as part of it.
Muslims should renounce SHARIA if they choose to stay in the US

If this mosque is built on private property, without public funds or governmental favoritism. Then it fits perfectly under the 1st Amendment.
Would people be so upset if it were a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. - First Amendment of the United States Constitution

Josh: I think that you're missing the point. Those that want to build the mosque couldn't care any less about America or the first amendment. They merely see it as another triumph over the infidels if in fact it is allowed to be constructed. Ask yourself this: Do you really believe that the location for the mosque is appropriate if in fact the proponents of the mosque had any respect for those that died on 9/11? Of course not!

Why a mosque can not be built on a private property is another question and any objection to construction of a mosque is absurd.But why Muslim community all over the world is so backward?That is a question of importance and relevance.Do we need grand mosques or good universaties?Modern education or only Madarsas where Islamic education,confined to Arabic,Quran, Hadith and Islamic history,is imparted?Islam has been reduced to tokenism of rituals,the practice of true Islam -that is justice and social equality and opposition to all forms of exploitation-has been abandoned.The Muslims rulers deliberately misused religion,and so much so that it was distorted and then tailored to suit their vested interests to hoodwink the masses.Cordoba organisation won't serve Muslims by constructing a mosque.The total construction cost may run into millions of dollars and that can be utilised for a better and more constructive purpose.To sum up: grand,beautifully built mosques,as we find in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries,are not going to help the community move forward in any direction.Masjid(mosque)is any place where Muslims bow their heads to God.

The twin towers were violently destroyed on sept 11, 2001. Americans died and Muslims rejoiced. We didn't round up the Muslims and send them packing. All the terroristic attacks have been conducted by Muslims. Extremists or NOT. At this site, they want to being to erect a new CALIPHATE. The name alone, harkens back to the history of CONQUERING and establishing the Islamic Caliphate. As a JEW, this is very sickening. How dare you speak with such flippant adoration. The Muslim world, even in the more moderate countries, has declared war on the Judao - Christian world. There are people in the world that choose to harm other people. Brother against brother, however, this is not ONE person. This is a whole of a people, that want nothing, but to impose their own way of life on others. They USE our system of DEMOCRACY, because the system has become corrupt. The TRUTH speakers that once permeated society (in the west) have been silenced, through political correctness and over 1/2 a century of corruption in our schools and prisons. Now, they ( the corrupters ) enter our political systems, which they have literally purchased. The Muslims contribute money to the schools to teach the doctrine of Islam. They buy our industries and financial institutions. They purchase our lands and establish SHARIA law in whole towns. SHARIA is a LAW. A country CAN'T sustain very long, if 2 laws are permitted to exist along side each other. The most oppressive will be the winner, as has been the case throughout history. The Cordoba Initiative is THAT exactly. It's a Muslim flag being raised on top of a site where Americans (civilians - sheep to the slaughter) were slain by the attack that MUSLIMS called WAR. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%C3%B3rdoba,_Spain"It was captured in 711 by a Muslim army: in 716 it became a provincial capital, depending from the Caliphate of Damascus; in Arabic it was known as قرطبة (Qurṭuba). In May 766, it was elected as capital of the independent Muslim emirate of al-Andalus, later a Caliphate itself. During the caliphate apogee (1000 AD), Córdoba had a population of roughly 400,000 inhabitants, though estimates range between 250,000 and 500,000."

The TWIN TOWERS were brought down by Bush Bin Satan's team which included Coward Chenny,Clown Rumsfled and of course son of a Luciferian.
The 9/11 truth movement has exposed the conspiracy hatched by Bush Bin Satan,son of Luciferian Bush Sr.,with scientific evidence,eye witness accounts.Both the volumes of 9/11 and American Empire are must reading for those who want to know the truth about 9/11.
What Isabella and Fernando did to the Jews and Muslims of Spain,read history.(Although guys like you prefer to distort history,not read it).

NO "MOSQUES" next to 9/11 Memorial Site - NO Cordoba House (mosque)
You have the unmitigated gall to call Americans that oppose the construction of a mosque near ground zero extremists? After all the murder and mayhem that your brethren have committed in the name of Allah?

Rory,the kind of language you use I guess you got out of the bed on the wrong side.If ignorance is bliss to you,no one can help.

I read the comments and think everyone has made some good points. In my opinion, building a mosque near the Twin Tower location is politically insensitive at least. Freedom of religion and freedom from religion is alive and well in America. I would suggest the organizers find another location for the mosque.

YJ,I fully agree with you.As I stated in my earlier post that mosque is not required at all at any location.Organizers can utilize huge funds earmarked or collected for mosque construction to promote goodwill and understanding among various religious communities.
