Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf: ‘New York is the capital of the world and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.’

Imam Rauf

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.

Democrat Majority Whip James Clyburn on the NYC Mosque: “community standards ought to be left up to the communities”

By Bryan Fischer

“I have argued that building permits can and should be denied for the building of mosques in American cities because each mosque is a potential or actual recruitment and training center for terrorism against the United States.

Mosques cannot claim protection under the First Amendment for the simple reason that the agenda of Islam is the total destruction of Western civilization in general and America in particular.

More than 100 verses (109 to be exact) in the Koran call upon Muslims to shed innocent infidel blood.

There may be moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as moderate Islam. And until we have a foolproof way of knowing when moderate Muslims will suddenly turn devout and start shooting up idolaters, like Maj. 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?

A Brit’s perspective on the Ground Zero Mosque

“In case you haven’t heard, there’s a plan afoot to build a 13-story Islamic Center and Mosque a few yards from Ground Zero in New York – a plan that’s been enthusiastically welcomed by politicians and civic leaders, eager to show how tolerant they are (at other people’s expense)…

The organization behind this scheme is called the Cordoba Initiative, and the building is to be called “Cordoba House” and this is because Cordoba, or COR-doh-ba, is the city in southern Spain where Muslims built their first great mosque at the start of, and as a symbol of, their conquest of Spain.

The Ground Zero mosque is intended to serve the same purpose in America.

Building mosques on conquered sacred ground is standard practice – it’s what Islam has always done to assert its supremacy – and that is what’s happening here.

And of course they know how insulting it is, how offensive it is – are you kidding me? Why do you think they chose a site as close as possible to Ground Zero? Or do you think that that was just an accident?

And they also know that once it’s built it will be there forever, as a permanent affront to all Americans, gloating in triumph and a major bridgehead in the on-going stealth jihad.

That’s how the Muslim world will see it, and that’s how they’ll be encouraged to see it – and to be fair to them, that’s exactly what it will be, confirming what they always suspected: that America is a soft country, a decadent country, crippled by political correctness, confused and guilt-ridden, with no backbone and no pride.

They plan to open it next year, on September 11th – the tenth anniversary of the atrocity.

Is that tasteless enough for you? ”

Proposed Muslim Centre near 9/11 Site Protested in NYC

“Is it disrespectful to the citizens of New York City to build a Muslim centre?  Atlas Shrugged blogger & “birther”  Pamela Geller doesn’t want a proposed centre/mosque built near Ground Zero, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg does.”

Does it really matter whether you call it a community centre or a mosque? Sure it does. A community center sounds so…nice…and innocent.

But first, forgive me for this little detour: yeah, it looks like many Americans do object to a proposed centre/mosque built near Ground Zero – does the fact that some of those objecting are “birthers” make their objections to this “community center” any less valid? And will politicians hear those concerns or dismiss them as the ranting of “birthers”?

Tip: if you want to minimize the impact of a group that disagrees with you, come up with a name to mock them and do everything you can to ridicule them. This way you won’t have to actually answer any questions.

(And no, I’m not going to waste your time discussing the “birther” issue, it doesn’t even matter which side of that little shouting match I lean towards. Mostly I’m just getting tired of the name calling. I was tired of it in first grade, and it’s especially tiring when adults use that juvenile tactic rather than making a case for their opposing view.)

Now back to my initial comment:

How stupid do they think we are?

Oh, Gee, Golly, isn’t it Swell that this nice Egyptian Guy is getting into “community development” and helping our city? He’s not trying to Islamicize anybody. Gosh, no – he’s a “community developer”. Maybe he’ll help us fundamentally change America.

Tip: if you want to minimize the impact of a group that disagrees with you, come up with a name to mock them and do everything you can to ridicule them. This way you won’t have to actually answer any questions.

And, regarding the “community center”:

“Look, we’re building this big, beautiful statue of a horse. Go ahead, drag it inside your city. It’s a monument. See? We really can get along. You’re big and strong, relax, you don’t need to worry – why would you think you need to worry about a statue of a horse? Look at it, what a beautiful monument…”

BTW: you’re not paranoid if someone really is out to get you.
