The Muslim Hijacking of Ground Zero

Islam doesn't just hijack planes, it hijacks the things that mean something to people. The great cities of the world are littered with relics of the Muslim occupation of their sacred places. Jerusalem, Delhi, Constantinople and Alexandria all testify to the Muslim predilection for taking over other people's sacred places, and turning them into mosques. It wasn't enough for Muslims to conquer Jerusalem and subjugate its inhabitants. No, they also had to take the holiest place in Judaism and build a mosque on top of it. Similarly it wasn't enough for them to conquer and rename Constantinople, they also had to turn the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. These are not exceptions to the rule. In Asia, the Middle East and Europe, there are numberless examples of the same thing.

To this day, Muslims continue seizing other people's places of worship and turning them into mosques. It's going on in Egypt today. It's going on in Yugoslavia where churches are being destroyed and turned into mosques, day by day. It's went on in Israel, in Joseph's Tomb, burial spot of the biblical Joseph, which was seized by Muslims in September of 2000, a year before 9/11. 

Why do Muslims this? It's not just about seizing territory, though that is part of it. It's also about hijacking something more vital, identity. By Islamizing sacred sites, they also take control of other people's history and culture. As they have done throughout the world. Hijacking the Temple Mount, has allowed Muslims to claim Jerusalem as a holy city of theirs. Hijacking churches in Egypt and Yugoslavia, eliminates the religious history of non-Muslims from the area. Hijacking the Hagia Sophia, was part of the recreation of Constantinople, into Istanbul.

The common denominator is that Muslims do not just make war on lands or bodies-- but on memory itself. Their goal is to make people forget what came before their colonization. To distort the history and traditions that are meaningful to them, and replace them with a distorted Islamized version of history. The Muslim "tolerance" in Spain, the Palestinian Arab "refugees" and the Muslim "contributions" to science, are all examples of that revisionist history, in which oppression becomes tolerance, repression becomes knowledge, and the oppressors become the victims.

Ground Zero is not only the central point of the Muslim massacre of 3000 people. It is also the central point of the memory of that massacre. The area is the place where people come to remember what happened. To see, to hear and to pay tribute to the dead. Which is exactly why Muslims are determined to hijack it for their own purposes, with a highly visible mosque and their own 9/11 museum that will feature a radically altered version of history. What they are after is the equivalent of putting up a Holocaust Revisionism museum outside the Holocaust museum.

There is no legitimate reason for the Cordoba House. As I have already documented, the current mosque draws most of its worshipers from outside the area. There is no significant Muslim population in Downtown Manhattan that needs to have its own 100 million dollar community center. The only reason for building something on this scale, is because of its proximity to Ground Zero. The Ground Zero mosque is aimed at the hijacking of memory, not of Muslims, but of non-Muslims. It is meant to serve as part of the Muslim narrative spread after 9/11 that exonerates Muslims from all blame, while pointing the finger at America and the Jews instead. Which is why the ADL and the Wiesenthal Center have both come out against the Ground Zero Mosque, regardless of the vicious attacks directed at them by liberals for daring to stand up to Muslim colonization and bigotry.

At Ground Zero, all Americans realized that Islam was an inescapable question that they must grapple with. It is a powerful symbol. And symbols are dangerous. People will fight and die for symbols, as they will not for cold hard facts. It is why the left has tried to hijack it using the IFC. They failed. Now where they failed, the Islamists intend to succeed. And just as the IFC was backed by Bloomberg, so too the Ground Zero mosque is being backed by Bloomberg. It's why the media and liberals are shouting down all criticism of the Ground Zero mosque. Islam and the left both want to suppress the real history of September 11. They want Americans to forget who did it, and instead feed them excuses about "American foreign policy" and of course those omnipresent Jews, who are really to blame for it all.

The name Cordoba House is entirely appropriate for the Ground Zero mosque, because it too represent a false history. The story of Cordoba and Ground Zero are linked, in that they are both stories of Muslim terror, covered up with lies about Muslim tolerance. And the Cordoba House is part of a comprehensive effort to pervert the history of September 11, as comprehensively as that of Cordoba or Jerusalem. To replace it with their narrative, in which they are the victims, and we are the oppressors. And to allow that history to stand, is to destroy the meaning of our own culture and accept our subjugation, in history, if not yet in fact.

The Great Lie told and retold over and over again for the last 9 years, is that Islam was not responsible for 9/11. That lie has been repeated over and over again. It has permeated our culture. It has filled our media. The politicians have echoed it. Books and articles are written that treat it as something every reasonable person understands. Islam had nothing to do with 9/11. Not a damn thing.

The Ground Zero mosque is that lie made flesh. It is that revisionist history given physical form, turned into brick and mortar, steel and cement, raised up to the sky, to look down mockingly on the Ground Zero construction site itself, and the people who come there to reflect and remember. It mocks their memories. It mocks the dead. Its arrogance is the same as that of the Muslim burners of the Great Library of Alexandria, of Hanan Ashrawi claiming there was no Jewish connection to Joseph's Tomb, or Anwar Al-Awlaki, who had advised the 9/11 hijackers, telling reporters after the attacks that Islam opposes terrorism. It is an act of beheading, not of flesh, but of identity. It takes a blade and saws at the neck of a culture, cutting off its head through lies and deceit.

When Muslims conquer, they begin with massacres and end with colonization. The building they bought, had its value destroyed by their own attack on September 11. Now having bought the building at a loss, they intend to demolish it and turn it into a monument to the very ideology responsible for that massacre. As they have done before in Constantinople and Jerusalem. As they have done throughout the world. First they bomb. Now they occupy. First they kill, then they solicit converts. First they invade, then they rule. It is an ugly and bloody pattern that has held true for over a 1000 years of history. And here it is again.

When the Sudanese Muslim Janjaweed militias go out and rape non-Arab women, this was what they said to their victims. "The government gave me permission to rape you. This is not your land anymore." That is the Ground Zero mosque, with Bloomberg giving his permission to allow Islam to declare that this too is not our land anymore. It is the rape of a place that has equal stature in American memory to Gettysburg or Arlington. It is a calculated act of cultural brutality, disguised with a fake smile. Its message is that this is not our land anymore. That these are not our memories anymore. That these too have been hijacked by the murderers.

 Islam does not just destroy bodies, it destroys souls. It plots to rob entire peoples of their culture, their history and their identity. In order to make them into Muslims or Dhimmis, slaves of Muslims. Mohammed began the process by taking the existing belief systems in the region, combining them into a distorted ideology that he called Islam, which gave him the power to do anything he wanted, that exploded into massacres, ethnic cleansing and a wave of brutality and conquest that covered the globe. But the armies of Islam did not just kill or enslave, they robbed their victims of their culture and history-- and replaced it with Islam. Ground Zero is their target once more. A hijacking not of planes, but of memory. And their targets are no longer just 3,000 people-- but us all.

America is like a stumbling Wildebeest and the Islamists are calmly watching and waiting for our political leaders to administer the coupe de gras - they don't even have to do it themselves! This is the part that is tearing up my insides, that is causing such agonizing pain. We are being ruled by elitist idiots who can't -- won't protect American citizens.

I agree with every word but the question is:

What do we Westerners who still possess our sanity do when our governments are deliberately selling us out and most of our own people hate Western civilisation so much they too want to destroy it?

Because I have to say that what we are witnessing isn't just an attack on us by hate-filled Muslims, but the suicide of the West. All thanks to Cultural Marxism - Multiculturalism, tolerance and diversity. As this ideology is now so dominant, I wonder if it's already too late for the West to be saved.

“The Mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers.” - Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister of ‘modern’, ‘moderate’, ’secular’ Turkey.

Why would the Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey say such a thing? Where would he get such an idea? After all, Islam is a ‘Religion of Peace’ that has nothing to do with violence or terror. Right?

When the Prime Minister said this he was either:
1) Lying for some unfathomable reason, or
2) He was just joking, a sort of Islamic Seinfeld but not funny, or
3) He meant it.

He meant it. We have to understand that the mosque is just a symptom of a great plague inflicted upon human consciousness - Islam.

As we see Christian doctors savagely slaughtered in Afghanistan, World Cup fans viciously blown up in Uganda, the rabid Islamic hatred of the Jews in Israel, the jihad against the Buddhists in Thailand, the holy war against the Catholics in the Philippines, the virtual extermination of the Zoroastrians in Iran, the suicide bombing of cafe patrons in Bali (twice), the centuries old ISLAMIC JIHAD against the Hindus & Sikhs in India, and of course the incineration of office workers in New York..... we have to ask....is all this hatred and violence because of us or is it because of Islam?

The prime directive of Islam is quite simply global conquest:

Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah Muhammed said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.’

Could it be ANY more clear??? This is the call for universal ISLAMIC JIHAD, holy war, against everyone and everything, everywhere that is not Islamic.

The preferred tactic in Muhammed’s ISLAMIC JIHAD is stated here:

Bukhari (52:220) - Allah’s Apostle Muhammed said ‘I have been made victorious with terror’

(cont'd)....

The Infidel Alliance said...

(cont'd)....

Muhammed was, contrary to ignorant public perception, not a ‘holy prophet’ but a sadistic sociopath. Muhammed was a savage murderer, a decapitator, a torturer, an amputator, a slaver, a human trafficker, a kidnapper, a rapist, a misogynist, a perfidious liar, a looting stealing thief, a gangster, a child rapist, a genocidist and a self proclaimed terrorist.

The issue is not the mosque - a mosque is just a building.

The issue is not with Muslims - they are just people subjugated and brainwashed by Islam.

The problem is ISLAM.

Islam is the ideological force behind the mosque.

Islam is the ideological force that causes men to put women in identity robbing black bags as clothing.

Islam is the ideological force that makes men strap on suicide vests and blow up other human beings not like them.

Islam is the ideological force that makes men saw the heads of off living, helpless fellow human beings.

Islam is the ideological force that makes men hack off the hands of living fellow human beings.

Islam is the ideological force that causes terror and death and suffering in the ‘infidel’ world.

Islam is the ideological force that enslaves Muslims, denying them the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of thought, but most importantly the freedom to LOVE their fellow human being.

The problem is not the mosque.

The problem is not Muslims.

The problem, which everone knows in the pit of their stomach but is afraid to admit, is with Muhammeds death cult - ISLAM.

Islam is what causes the terror, death and suffering in the ‘infidel’ world.

Islam is what causes the sumission and subjugation of 1.2 billion ‘Muslims’.

The problem is Islam, and for the good of humanity Islam must be destroyed. Never in history has a single ideology held so much of humanity - ALL OF HUMANITY - under the weight of its oppression and terror.

The ideological destruction of Islam is the single greatest human rights imperative in the history of humanity - freeing 5 billion ‘infidels’ from the threat of ISLAMIC JIHAD, and liberating 1.2 billion Muslims from Muhammeds oppressive tyranny.

ISLAMO DELENDE EST!! - ISLAM MUST BE DESTROYED!!

Islam makes fools out of people. As someone who has understood Islam for what it is for a long time, in particular since 9/11, it is really just sad, heartbreaking even, to see otherwise intelligent, successful people of all occupations and education levels remain so utterly clueless about Islam. It makes me question their intellect, it makes me question our entire educational system/social structure - is it all some sort of joke, are the citizens of the West nothing more than trained monkeys, are people capable of thinking for themselves and grasping concepts or are they just repeating what they have been told by the established declarers of fact, that is, the liberal academic and media establishments? When I read or hear some otherwise intelligent or highly respected individual repeat the accepted nonsense about Islam I not only at this point question their education and ability to critically think for themselves, frankly I question their sanity. Islam not only makes fools of people, it reveals them to be literally insane, not of sound mind, incapable of defending their own civilization. It was bad enough to see it happening in Europe, what a truly great tragedy that this is now happening even in America.

Charlie Hall said...

Different religions take each others' worship spaces all the time and convert them to secualar or religious use. Christians have been taking synagogues all over New York and turning them into churches; why is there no complaint? And in Tzfat I can show you a mosque that is now a museum, as is the famous Hagia Sofia church turned mosque in Istanbul.

The Muslim tolerance in Spain is no revision; it lasted for 300 years. You don't find very many places in the world with that long a continuous period of tolerance for Jews. Nor is the Muslim intellectual achievements of the Umayyid and Abbasid Caliphates; Europe was in the Dark Ages and only Monks and Jews and the very rare monarch like Alfred the Great even knew how to read and write. Islam had universities when there were none in Christian Europe.

The "Ground Zero Mosque" is in fact not at ground zero but two blocks away. The current mosque that is four blocks away was there before the World Trade Center was built, and in fact is hopelessly overcrowded, with worshipers having to pray outside on the sidewalk, as can be seen in the photographs here:

http://www.masjidmanhattan.com/

Finally, the tactics of the opponents have revealed the total moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the American political Right. It used to oppose arbitrary governmental intervention against private property rights. The cries against the Kelo case in which a city wanted to bulldoze a community in order to allow a private developer to build an industrial park were well justified even though the Supreme Court decision was correct on the law. The more recent taking of private homes to build a sports arena should have generated more outrage than it did. The attempt to stop the building of the Cordoba Center by using a bogus landmarking ordinance when the current building is an ordinary commercial property and the property owner has by-right zoning to develop the site is absolutely outrageous.

Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog said...

Charlie,

Plenty of people do find it offensive as a matter of fact, but only a fool would try to argue that one somehow justifies the other.

The Muslim "tolerance" ignores the massacres and the forced conversions of Jews en masse. Islam's "knowledge" was part of the loot, much as it was in Europe at the time. And the attempt to understate Europe's culture, while overstating the culture in the Muslim world, is part of the typical Muslim revisionist history.

The mosque is within the sphere of destruction inflicted on Ground Zero. It was bought so cheaply because it was part of that sphere of destruction.

There is no sizable Muslim population in Downtown Manhattan. In an interview it was admitted that the vast majority of worshipers come from outside the area. Those are his words.

The tactics of those defending the desecration of Ground Zero reveal a great deal about the lack of respect and empathy among the left, and its determination to destroy what Americans value in the name of their ideology. And considering how much of the surrounding area is landmarked, the idea that a historical building should be landmarked is entirely normative. If you reject the idea of landmarks outright, then make that argument instead of hiding behind irrelevancies regarding Eminent Domain.

Anonymous said...

Excellent article and absolutely correct in all points. But is there something we can actually DO to resist or prevent this building project from going forward. What a disgrace if this mosque will actually be built, thereby drawing in large numbers of muslims to the area to desecrate Ground Zero and the memory of those who were murdered by the very terrorist types who intend to build this mosque.

SecularDemocraticIran said...

Said it well, as a person who grew up in an oppressive Islamic country, have a better understanding of an Islamic mentality than average people.

A New Yorker myself, the instent I first heard of the mosque plan, I opposed it because a mosque is considered a flag above the concquered land in Islam and a sign of victory for any Muslim in the world who supported 9/11 attack.

It's like praising the Muslims who carried out/supported the attack and invite them to blow up more of our buildings so then they can build a mosque and raise their flags + now they have a Muslims US president who applogizes for our troops fighting & killing their terrorists!

"The Infidel Alliance" also perfectly explained the siruation, we are not dealing with individuals, we are dealing with a violent and barbaric ideology called Islam.

V S Naipaul wrote of his travels in non-Arab Muslim lands.

Because I was soon to discover that no Colonization had been so thorough as the colonization that had come with the Arab faith. Colonized or defeated peoples can begin to distrust themselves. In the Muslim countries I am talking about, this distrust had all the force of religion. It was an article of the Arab faith that everything before the faith was wrong, misguided, heretical; there was no room in the heart or mind of these believers for their pre-Mohammedan past. So ideas of history here were quite different from ideas of history elsewhere; there was no wish here to go back as far as possible into the past, and to learn as much as possible about the past. Persia had a great past; it had been the rival in classical times of Greece and Rome. But you wouldn't have believed it in Iran in 1979; for the Iranians the glory and the truth had begun with the coming of Islam, Pakistan was a very new Muslim state. But the land was very old. In Pakistan were the ruins of the very old cities of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa. Fabulous ruins, the discovery of which earlier this century had given a new idea of the history of the sub-continent. Not only pre-Islamic Ruins; but possibly also Pre-Hindu. There was an archaeological department, inherited from British days, which looked after the sites. But there was, especially with the growth of fundamentalism, a contrary current. This was expressed in a letter to a newspaper while I was there. The ruins of the cities, the writer said, should be hung with quotations from the Koran, saying that this was what befell unbelievers. The faith abolished the past. And when the past was abolished like this, more than an idea of history suffered. Human behavior, and ideals of good behavior, could suffer.

Excellent column. I just would like to add some miscellaneous comments.

1) An interesting column recently written by two Muslims on the Ottawa Citizen:

"Mischief in Manhattan: We Muslims know the Ground Zero Mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation."

The authors accuse liberals such as Mr Bloomberg of ignoring Muslim tyranny and how Muslims worldwide are using liberalism to destroy secular democratic societies from within.

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Mischief+Manhattan/3370303/story.html

2) We need to remember that this is the second case of islamization of 9/11 sites.

The crashing site of Flight 93 has a memorial clearly designed as a Muslim Crescent directed towards Mecca.

http://errortheory.blogspot.com/2009/10/construction-drawings-released-flight.html

Mark Steyn on the Crescent of Embrace:

"We think it (Ground Zero Mosque) symbolizes our "tolerance". They think it symbolizes our submission. Either way, the two most important sites of 9/11 - the scene of the greatest atrocity and the scene of the only good news of the day (heroism of Flight 93) - will honor neither the victims nor American heroism."

"The “crescent of embrace”, in its desperation to see no enemies and stand for nothing, represents a shameful modification: Are you ready, guys? Let’s roll over."

http://www.steynonline.com/content/view/3353/30/

3) I agree that there is a need to keep on fighting, not only against this mosque but also against Dhimmitude disguised as tolerance and political correctness.

It's a multiple front war, and among the main targets are the Dhimmi media, corrupt and weak politicians, and those who benefit from immigration as a source of cheap labor and increased demand for consumer products. There is a need to establish a moratorium on immigration.

Excellent article

I recall when I first heard the story of G-d giving the Torah to the nations before he gave it to Israel, with the people of Edom (the West) refusing it due to it saying, “Thou shall not murder” and the people of Yishmael (Islamic world) refusing it due to it saying, “Thou shall not steal”.

I remember thinking, why is Yishmael known for stealing when it murders as much people as Edom if not more, managing to kill off some 270 million+ souls since the founding of islam?

Now I know why, the stealing extends from the physical such as peoples, loot, nations, land and holy places to the abstract, such as souls, culture, knowledge (or knowledge useful to islam) and identity.

It would be quite a sight to see muslims in Scotland & Germany one day take on the identities of the Picts and Prussians, in the same way muslims in Israel named themselves after the Philistines. It would also be a sight to see non-muslim terror supporters, making excuses for such blatant identity theft.

Islam is basically the complete system or way of life revolved around the idea of stealing practically everything of worth.


Btw, the Sudanese Muslim Janjaweed also said to their non-arab victims that they “killed their god”, which is strange since islam claims to be monotheistic. Unless they (the arabs) truly believe in the notion of some sort of “racial” henotheism, which is worshipping a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities (including I assume the G-d of Israel as well).

Perhaps they believe that different races and peoples have their own (false) deities, who are all inferior to the god of the arabs, the so-called best of peoples otherwise why would they claim allah to be greater?

Domination of Public Space
As soon as they move into Dar al-Harb (the lands of the infidel) in any numbers, Muslims think they have a God-given right to dominate public space and intimidate the infidels into submission.

Mosques are of course notorious examples of this (see Mosque blight) but their swaggering, aggressive arrogance and sense of preferential entitlement make them obnoxious to the indigenous inhabitants in many other ways: http://crombouke.blogspot.com/2010/01/muslim-domination-of-public-space.html

In my last comment I meant to say Monolatrism or Monolatry - The worship of one god who alone is worthy of worship, though other gods are believed to exist.

Not Henotheism - The worship of one god, not precluding the existence of others who may also be worthy of praise.

Unless I missed it, you did not mention Ayodhya, and that is unfortunate.

The Indian Subcontinent was devastated by the Muslim conquest. Will Durant's profoundly grim assessment of the brutal and genocidal nature of that conquest is frequently quoted.

There had been an important Hindu temple at Ayodhya; a mosque replaced it. This was just one of many. You can find the full story by googling, "Hindu temples replaced by Muslim mosques."

vanhetgoor said...

Your observations are correct, and now it is time to act. Enough time spent on talking and coming together. The moment has arrived that we have to stand up. But as intelligent people we can't use the same weapon as the muslims, they fight with terror and destruction, arsine and rape. We have to choose another way. We have to fight with thoughts. We must use our minds to concur the enemy of mankind.
Islam can't survive in a world where people care for each other and work together. Freedom and truth are the only working weapons against the islam. If we attack the islam in the hart we must get it on it's knees and make it disappear.
The hart of the islam is not the mosque on Ground Zero, nor the Aya Sophia, nor the mosque at the Temple Mount. The everyday centre of islam is in the beds of the suppressor. The female slaves have to be freed first. Oppression end with education, when one is able to understand the situation it is easy to act.
Fighting islam is only possible when we educate the muslims and train them to be civilised human beings.

For centuries islam has taught people to behave like animals, therefor it must be possible to make out of muslims humans!

We all know why so many Muslims want the 13-story mosque built on the graves of the victims of September 11.

Why are so many non-Muslim Americans so gung-ho about it? I hope to G-d it's not as an apology for the "backlash" against Muslims that never happened post 9/11.

Keli Ata said...

I just read this on Artuz Sheva. A small town in Germany has shut down a mosque once used by 9/11 terrorists.

Surprising and yet no surprising. If any country would know about where extremism leads it would be Germany. What will it take for Americans to learn?

Tracy W said...

I wonder whether anyone is currently advocating specific and pro-active ways of encouraging the Americanization of Muslims alredy in the US.

It seems that most of what we hear falls under the category of defensive measures.

I'm familiar with Pamela Geller's campaign to help US Muslim women under domestic threat. There must be other similar projects going on, I'm sure.

We should aggressively support the small but significant number of Muslims who genuinely want to integrate. In spite of having been born in a Muslim family, they may not be inclined to practice or entirely convinced by Islam's doctrine.

I'm talking about a long-term plan here.

Perhaps out of a desire not to offend the orthodox majority we are neglecting a huge opportunity to strengthen the most secular strand of Islam.

Put yourself in the place of a Muslim young person who wants to integrate and to live according to western values. What kind of support does he or she have from society? Very little.

It's not only the young who are victims of strong religious and cultural restraints but grown up women and men too. They all socialize within their own cultural circle so the pressure on them to conform is enormous.

At the risk of being politically incorrect, our society should encourage Muslim youth to embrace western values. If we truly believe our system is better, then we should promote it, without shame.

Multiculturalism is very damaging to society. I say that as a Canadian, familiar with the results.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can't miss this opportunity to call attention to ISRAEL's own failed opportunity.

For the past decades they have abandoned generations of Arabs - including Israeli citizens - leaving them completely under the influence of hateful Islamic education.

The Israeli government has shamefully allowed millions of Arab children to be indoctrinated and brainwashed by teachers, clerics and television.

Thousands of future murderers of Jews have been nurtured thanks to Israel's own failure to intervene.

It's not enough to shoot Arabs when they are on the rampage. Israel should have fought Arab hatemongering in the classroom and other media.

I see the West given two simplified options, with half-measures equivalent to the first:

1 - appease towards honourable capitulation, which is the logical choice of our current crop of spineless politicians armed with a pc fundamentalism that permits them to give away our future in order to demonstrate how tolerant they are;

2 - set aside democratic values for long enough to confront Islam, and use its own values and principles to defeat it, which is precisely the strategy it has employed against civilisation and progress.

A terrorist attack that kills 10, 50, 100, triggers the deletion of an Islamic town, village and city respectively. Do it once, twice, thrice, whilst shelving our own useless idiots to the stocks for public ridicule, and the cowardly ideology of Islam will retreat to the dunes from whence it came to lick its wounds.

If the people want it, it can happen; if our leaders oppose it, we can find new leaders.

Outrageous? Well, is it as outrageous as the coming reality of our yet unborn children reviling our memory as they choose between dhimmitude and turning to face Mecca 5 times daily?

That indeed is what is facing us. We were given a legacy, a legacy of freedom from our fathers and grandfathers. We took it, and then handed it over to those whose intent and ideology is worse then Nazism.

Our children will curse the legacy that we are leaving them.

I cannot understand and have a really hard time accepting that thousands of New Yorker's support the mosque at ground zero. What is wrong with them? Are they really so blind to the lies about Islam. Muslims must be laughing their heads off at all the stupid American's fighting their battle for them.

It is as if these non-Muslims fighting FOR the mosque, think the 9/11 hijackers were an aberration. As if they weren't real Muslims. As if real Muslim's are misunderstood and peace-loving people. If only they'd be given a chance to show their goodness.

Meanwhile to Muslims around the world, the hijackers were superhero's. Doing what most would have thought impossible.

Is there any way someone could hand a copy of this article to Mayor Bloomberg? I just don't understand how he could be so damn ignorant.

The mosque at ground zero is most certainly an attempt to hijack (and desecrate) the memory of the nearly 3000 people who died a horrible death on 9/11.

There has to be a way for sanity to prevail. But it won't.

To a devout Muslim, where ever he puts his foot on it needs to be made subject to Islam. Time is of no significance, just the fact that they put their foot on a particular piece of real estate, i.e. country. Just watching Pamela Geller and the guy who supports a mosque to be build on Sean Hanity is very telling if any who object this to happen is considered equating Islam with terrorism. Even so they are not totaly wrong with it but don't want to admit that Islam is a threat to all that America values (minus the demoralization of this nation).

When a society rushes at the cliff's edge whilst scolding those that keep pointing out there's a cliff ahead, I guess it fully deserves the consequences.

I relate this not just to the evil of Islam that's threatening civilisation and progress, but also to the gullible masses that believed they were electing the Messiah in 2008.
