The mosque controversy in New York City: “To build, or not to build. That is the question.” The 1st Amendment to the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion. But certainly the mosque would not be built depending upon neighborhood conditions, zoning restrictions, or bad taste. But its building has superseded all of those now.
A thousand questions immediately explode from one’s head: 1) how would Rauf know Islam’s radical intentions? 2) Americans would die for not building? 3) Is Rauf somehow connected to radical Islam? 4) Are there other Muslims who feel the same way? And, 5) Does building a mosque that close to the site of the 9/11 massacre worsen Muslim relations in this country, or even in New York?
The “radicals” Feisal seems to be talking about are many normal American citizens living close by the site of 9/11. They’re supposed to be radical because one of their relatives was slaughtered by extremists on 9/11?
The real problem seems that it’s getting difficult to separate the peaceful Muslims from the real radicals, and to separate those who believe some of what the Qu’ran states, but refuse to act on their feelings. Or, Muslims who are secretly terrorist sympathizers but haven’t made the transition yet.
We implore leaders of those peace-loving Islamists to verbally and physically decry any terrorist activities by radical Islamists that could, or might occur. Their voices of reason need to be heard desperately to differentiate the good from the bad.
Frankly, because of the mounting Muslim populations in America, it’s getting more difficult to tell who is peaceful, who intends to convert the infidels to Islam, or who will just kill them off. Unfortunately, since 600 AD, history has not been on their side.

The airlines do it, GM did it, the banks did it, and every time Democrats and establishment Republicans oblige. We appear to have found the next industry cozy with politicians that’s going to ask for one. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Fame is a distorting and highly overrated quality – as the late, great David Bowie knew so well. Especially now in the Internet Age – when everyone shares publicly every tiny facet of their existence. Especially now in the Omni-Media Age – in which was born the phrase “Famous for being famous” (See: Kardashians). But the things that allow | Read More »
His messaging in that first hour and going through the debate, was remarkable that’ going resonate on Tuesday. But I’m gonna be very curious to see when Senator Cruz out produces expectations and comes in a first second third place, if he’s gonna get the same kind of press.
Interesting. The only veterans groups that have actually received money from Trump’s fundraiser are in Iowa and New Hampshire… and to get the money they have to pick it up on stage at one of his rallies.
