Yesterday, in deep liberal piety mode, New York Mayor Bloomberg (D) lectured the unenlightened that Ground Zero is a “very appropriate place” for a mosque because it “tells the world” that in America, we have freedom of religion.
Where to begin?
To whom do we have to prove that America has freedom of religion?
Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan, Algeria, Gaza, Sudan, Iran, Muslim states where freedom of religion is not only unknown but held in contempt and viewed as a sign of weakness and cultural decadence.
The issue is not freedom of religion, the issue is location, location, location.
A triumphant mosque that overlooks Ground Zero, sacred soil, is, to say the least, insensitive. To construct a massive mosque where three thousand innocents where slaughtered in the name of Islam is a second atrocity.
Feisal Abdul Rauf–a supporter of the Jew-hating flotilla— claims that the mosque is an “interfaith center.”
Will there be a church and synagogue inside the building?
You know where they need an interfaith center?
Anywhere and everywhere in the Arab Muslim world.
Jews are forbidden to step foot in Saudi Arabia.
Christians are forbidden to worship in Saudi Arabia.
Is it any wonder that most of the 9-11 terrorists hailed from Saudi Arabia.
This is not about freedom of religion. This is about raw politics. Will Americans permit a mosque–a Trojan horse–to invade sacred space?
It’s about Democrats vs. Republicans.
Democrats will, overwhelmingly, support this mosque.
Republicans will oppose it.
It’s a great campaign issue and I have no doubt that America will overwhelmingly go with Republicans.
Naturally, Obama has refused to comment on the Ground Zero Mosque. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs stated that the President views this as an issue for New Yorkers.
As if New York is not part of America.
But of course, where Jews can and cannot live in Jerusalem is something Obama has no problem mouthing off about.
It’s a telling moment in our culture. The divide between Democrats and Republicans could not be more stark.
Here’s the choice: Will you allow Islamists and their liberal enablers to subvert America through 4th Generation tactics, or will you stand up and proclaim that tolerance of the intolerant is not a virtue but cultural suicide?
For a clear and concise explanation of Islam’s foundations, the always excellent Daniel Greenfield writes about The Religion of Peace.
…the underlying dirty secret of Islam is that it has been nothing more than a tool for conquest, robbery, rape and murder from the very beginning. From Mohammed to the present day, the leaders of Islam are men who want power. Islam is their means of getting it. Just as Nazism and Communism were for others. Islam is an ideology of power that can only imagine peace in terms of conquest.
