Not satisfied to bask in the murder of 3,000 innocent Americans, those who subscribe to radical Muslim idealogy now want to add insult to injury by erecting a mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero in New York City. Of course, they don’t wear their radicalism on their sleeves, but they mask it with their lectures about “tolerance” and “multiculturalism.”
Americans are portrayed as “intolerant” even though we have bent over backwards to accommodate Muslims in our country. For goodness sakes, we have even installed foot baths in the Minneapolis airport – an amenity that they do not even have in the Middle East! We alter our behavior just to accommodate Muslims- and it is about time that they accommodate us by backing off of this ill-conceived idea to build a mosque at Ground Zero.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the spokesperson for the Ground Zero Mosque, should be required to take sensitivity classes. He obviously doesn’t have a clue because the proposed grand opening date for the mosque is the ten-year anniversary of the most horrific act of terrorism on American soil in history – September 11, 2011. This is a collective stab to the heart of every patriotic American. Iman Rauf and those who support this mosque are spitting on the graves of the thousands of people who lost their lives on 9-11. And yet, as reported by Liz Goodwin, some Muslims wonder why anti-mosque protests are on the rise.
What our liberal, multicultural friends don’t understand is that this mosque would be the ultimate in supremacist symbolism. It would scream “Islam has conquered America!” to millions of Muslims around the world.
In Opposing the “Ground Zero Mosque” Guy Rodgers explains that when Muslims conquer an enemy, they construct a mosque at a sacred site as a tangible symbol of their supremacy. Rodgers points out that this is nothing new:
Indeed, the act of destroying Christian, Jewish and Hindu holy places and replacing them with mosques is an all-too-common, and unreported, fact of Islamic history. To accurately report these thousands and thousands of acts of subjugation would, after all, be regarded as most politically incorrect, as well as a knife in the heart of the modern rewrite of history that falsely portrays the 14 century expansion of Islam either as “defensive” or as “tolerant” – or both.
America cannot allow this mosque to be built. Voice your protest now, by signing ACT! for America’s petition to stop the Ground Zero Mosque.
