You know what would be great ?…… A huge new mosque in NYC right next to The WTC.

Huh ?

Whaddya mean ‘a mosque is already there‘ ?

Look at what ?

Whoa.

At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards away from where Osama Bin Laden’s airborne Islamist bombers killed nearly 3000 people back in 2001.

The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times — which put the story on its front page Wednesday — that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into ‘’an Islamic center near the city’s most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zero’s more unexpected and striking neighbors.’’

Snap……….. Clack !…….. Laser attached and on stand-by……. Light attached and on stand-by…….. Full belt……… Ditty bag………. Crank and battery-op radios……….. Stores and bottled water……… Clothes…….. Extra boots…….. Ammu…………

What ?

No, I don’t have time.

Dammit, I’m busy getting my home and property ready for what’s on the horiz………..

Oh hell………. Alright……. I guess I have to comment on this……………… On second thought, nah, I better not.  I don’t want to get arrested for starting a war…… Which might happen if I say anything.

What ?….. Are you crazy ?………. Nobody sane wants anything to happen and I’m at the top of the list with that.  Trust me.  The last thing I ever want to see and I mean THE LAST THING I EVER WANT TO SEE is a civilian violent uprising here.

Good, I’m glad we understand each other….. now, where was I……… Oh yeah………
Spare parts for the toys………… Cleaning kit – need to get extra pads………… A few waterproof bags……….. Silica gel packets (charged)………. Tarps………. Duct tape………. Go bag (make a second one)……… Extra flashlights………. Some cash (why – that won’t matter)……….

=======================

I saw this mosque thing written up by Jim Hoft over on Gateway Pundit earlier this afternoon and honestly thought it was a joke, totally worthy of an IowaHawk award.  I even semi-snarked a comment there (the one line about not getting arrested) and after posting it, I very quickly realized the mosque was an actuality.

I truly wasn’t going to post anything here at RedState about this, solely because of my love and honor of the 1st Amendment.  But I have the gut feeling that this isn’t one of those “hey, the real estate was available, so let’s do it” kind of things.  The brand new custom-made tin-foil-hat I have says that maybe only one or two of the peace-loving gents involved with this as ‘owners of record’ are American Citizens…. which makes this mosque perfectly OK to exist and serve it’s members as a house of worship.

Doesn’t make it right…. just legal.

======================

To close on a ‘totally unrelated’ item……… Gee, I wonder if the little church that was down there and lost everything will be allowed to come back one of these days.
