I'm sick of lunatics talking about honor and respect when they try to deny the building of this mosque. I lost a couple Muslim brothers-in-arms in
the Middle-East, both fought as bravely and heroically as any soldier I have ever encountered. Is it a slap in the face to build a place of worship in
the name of our hard-fought freedom from RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION!?
Could you wackos be any more disrespectful to Muslim-Americans who have fought and died for this country?
Could you wackos squat and drop a bigger load of crap on our constitutionally-guaranteed religious freedoms?
The fact that a bunch of Muslim Soldiers, Marines, Seaman and Airman haven't come by the protests and kicked the crap out of every one of those
ignorant bastards shows a lot more respect than the gutless, idiotic, racist and confused morons who are picketing against this mosque have shown.
I don't where today's military got that hooah garbage. It is absolutely the dumbest sound I have ever heard coming out out of a soldier's mouth.
What is wrong with "Airborne", "Ranger", "Recon". When I went to jump school if one Recon got pushups the rest did it with him. They always
yelled recon when the finished.
If you can get off you emotional tirade for a moment, have a rational discussion, listen for a few moments and drop YOUR intolerance you may learn why
there are so many who oppose Cordoba House. Anyway, yes there are muslims serving but as we have seen at Ft. Hood the military turns a blind eye to
any potential danger they may pose. I have no idea what unit you served in and it doesn't matter. The objection to the Cordoba house is that it will
be taken as a sign of conquest throughout the islamic world. No one is trying to deny anyone the right to worship. What they are saying is, don't
celebrate islam next to the site where so many died in the name of islam. Are all muslims terrorists, No, and no one is saying they are. There are
probably many muslims who just want to get on with their lives but there are all too many who want to institute sharia law around the world. It is a
question of how. However, when the 9/11 footage aired around the world there were celebrations in the streets of islamic countries. Since mohammed the
methods of imposing Sharia have varied depending on the strength of islam. Sharia is an all encompassing approach to life that includes sex, food,
art, business, education, prayer, manners, speech, and how to think and not to think. There is no aspect of life that is outside the power of Sharia
-- religion, politics, ethics, and culture included. Afghanistan used to be a Buddhist civilization. Who knows the Buddhist history of Afghanistan?
For all intents and purposes it does not exist. We ignore at our peril the history of how Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, North Africa, Egypt, Lebanon,
Syria, and Iraq went from being Christian to Islamic.
We don't know the history of those pre-islamic civilizations because of the total annihilation of the past cultures by Sharia law. The customs, law,
art, literature, and ethics of the host culture are replaced by Islamic values under the application of Sharia. The result? Nothing is left of the
history before the implementation of Sharia law.
We ignore the dhimmitude of the Kafirs (non-Muslims) who live inside Islamic societies. Christians who are left in Islamic countries are an abused
people who are unable to fight back after centuries of suffering and degradation under Sharia law. History teaches us that sharia has always led to an
Islamic mono-culture. Paris has entire areas that are no go areas for police, firemen, Jews and non-muslims. Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Brussels, Malmo,
Marseilles and numerous other european cities have suffered the same fate. In the end, there is no such thing as a little Sharia. In our own city, New
York, there are areas that have become enclaves of islamic domination and are producing our own home grown sources of terrorism. Adnan el-Shukrijumah,
Qaida’s new head of global operations is an American who lived in Brooklyn. The area he lived in is now a mini-Pakistan/Bangladesh, replete with
bearded men sporting all manner of Muslim headgear and long flowing tunics, as well as heavily swathed women, some even veiled. Yes, I know. It's
religous freedom and we are all immigrants. The difference is that these immmigrants do not want to assimilate and want to impose theirs.
The mosque, Masjid Nur al-Islam (the Light of Islam Mosque) is the center of islamic life there.
UNTIL THE mid-1990s, Masjid Nur al-Islam’s imam was the late Egyptian-educated Gulshair el-Shukrijumah, . He was initially dispatched by the Saudis
as a Wahhabi missionary in 1985. His disciple Clement Rodney Hampton- El was convicted of plotting to blow up the UN, FBI headquarters and the Holland
and Lincoln tunnels. Gulshair acted as interpreter for Omar Abdel-Rahman, the “Blind Sheikh” serving life for the first WTC bombing, conspiring to
use explosives at other NYC landmarks and colluding to assassinate US politicians. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Gulshair’s eldest son, Saudi-born Adnan,
has been designated by (according to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed) al-Qaida and personally vetted by Bin Laden to serve as successor to 9/11 pilot Mohammed
As someone who lived in the neighborhood all life said “Our lives were turned upside down. The newcomers weren’t required to integrate and show
sensitivity to the natives. Live-and-let-live didn’t apply to them. “For years the mosque had been calling the faithful to prayers via rooftop
loudspeakers five times daily – including pre-dawn. When we complained, the authorities regarded us, not them, as the disruptive element.”
Everything was couched in terms of freedom of worship.
The projected Muslim complex at 45-51 Park Place is simply another step for the domination of another neighborhood in NYC. Feisal Abdul Rauf, has
openly declaredhe is seeking a “Shari’a- compliant America.”
Kathy is leery of the imam behind the Cordoba House plans, Feisal Abdul Rauf, who speaks of a “Shari’a- compliant America." What message does
using the name Cordoba send? Cordoba was the first city conquered by Muslims in Spain. Every church and cathedral in Cordoba was eventually destroyed
or turned into a mosques under islamic rule. If the KKK had a bonfire rally and burned crosses on city streets would you be so tolerant and defend
their right of free speech? I doubt it. The issue isn’t our tolerance but their intolerance.
