There has been much written by people of all political stripes about the proposed Cordoba project. One thing is becoming apparent. The people who make up the Cordoba Project are sticking a finger in our eye and daring us to do something about it.
We have got to stop thinking of these people through the lens of our experience. We have to understand that this is an out-and-out challenge, and that this challenge was no more accidental than the attack of 9-11.
This Imam Rauf is a slick carnival con-man, with a penchant for organizing sub rosa anti-American Islamic foundations and has multiple ties to the Muslim Brotherhood that go clear back to his father. I’m really disgusted by people who would say that having a mosque, only two very short blocks from the very epicenter of ground zero, somehow bridges the gulf between a free Republic and the seventh century socio-political-military treatise called the Koran, in which self-proclaimed prophet Mohammed managed to weld together the wild tribes of the region into a conquering army with the fiery zeal of the true fanatic.
Ferocity and fanaticism turned out to be two of the attributes that the Arabs had in abundance from hundreds of years of inter-tribal warfare. Couple that to a ‘religion’ that mandated killing or conversion to a rigid ideology of conquest. No society has ever lived in harmony with ‘the religion of peace’. Only those who have had the strength to resist by strength of military arms have survived, and only then with constant vigilance.
We as a society have to come to the realization that without fundamental change Islam will not peacefully exist within the United States. It will seek to weaken and divide the country as it grows in strength like a cancer. It’s exactly what’s occurring in Europe right now.
I really hope somebody figures out a way to move that mosque. As I see it, it’s going to be nothing but a bloody mess. Nothing gets built in New York without the cooperation of the unions… all of them… the trades and the unions have pretty much agreed that no work will be done on that mosque site, and if you understand eastern union politics at all, you’ll understand what I mean when I say that I wouldn’t want to be a scab or a foreign construction company trying to set foot on that ground… it wouldn’t be pretty.
We have to observe Islam within our country very closely. Islam has sworn to our destruction. Is there a single reason for us not to be a little suspicious of the Muslims among us? I worked with an old Texas cowboy on a mining operation once, who used to say “Boy, if there’s a snake in the high grass around camp you’d better know where it is.”
Does this mean that all the Muslims in this country are raving fanatics?… No… But neither do I see all of these ‘peaceful’ Muslim congregations across the country raising their voices in patriotic American support for the sanctity of ground zero.
Those six hundred feet comprise two of the shortest blocks in New York. 45 Park Place is in more than just the event horizon at ground zero… it was in ground zero. One of the landing gear assemblies from the second plane was propelled through the roof to come to rest in the basement. There were body parts on the roofs of the buildings surrounding the towers.
Yes, it is ground zero. Yes, it is worth stopping that mosque at all costs. The eyes of the world are watching to see if we have what it takes to face the Islamo-fascist threat.
