Robert Spencer, the JihadWatch blogger:

“The idea here that will be widely understood is that this mosque is another triumphal mosque, another victory mosque [like] the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the site of the Temple Mount and the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus,” Spencer told WND today.

“The reason for the interest in this property in particular is its iconic status in relation to the 9/11 attacks. This is something the Imam Rauf has said himself. It’s not something I’m attributing to him,” Spencer explains.

“In his own words he said, ‘New York is the capital of the world and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.’ He was happy that his mosque would be at the site of the building [where] the wreckage fell on 9/11,” Spencer said.

Nidal Malik Hasan did, then the risk is simply too great to allow their indoctrination centers to sprout like weeds.

Today’s Taqiyya: The purpose of the Ground Zero, Cordoba mosque is healing, reconciliation and harmony

“If, as backers claim, the purpose of this Cordoba mosque and community center were healing, reconciliation and harmony, it has failed in its purpose. It has already had the opposite effect, enraging and dividing the city and country.

Why would backers of the project press ahead when its purpose is impossible to attain, unless the real purpose were to impose on the people of New York a mosque they do not want there?
