Politically correct toadies defeated on 9/11 Victory Mosque
They called us Islamophobic, racist, and uninformed. But in the summer of 2010, the forces of the right squared off against the media, the left, and Islamic terrorists -- and won. Breitbart reported today that the project is officially dead.
Muslim millionaires wanted to build a Victory Mosque near Ground Zero in New York City. Mayor Michael Bloomberg immediately signed on board.. Objectors were called names and informed. At one point, Bloomberg said, “If we don’t build it, the terrorists will win!”
And you wonder why the imams in Iran keep trying.
Millionaire Sharif El-Gamal bought the property at Park 51 in 2009 and told the New York Times he was building a community center called Cordoba House, after a town in Spain that the Muslims overran in 711. The Muslims took over a cathedrals and burned churches and temples. The New York Times called this the model of Muslim peaceful co-existence with Jews and Christians.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, founders of the group Stop Islamization of America, called him out on it, and the battle was on over the Ground Zero Mosque was on.
Because the proposed building had gyms and other facilities, El-Gamal, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, and their liberal handmaidens in politics and the press insisted it was not a mosque -- even though it would hold services for 2,000 people each week. I guess Mountaineer Stadium makes WVU a community center, not a school.
Liberals called Rauf a moderate Muslim. He told "60 Minutes" shortly after 9/11: "I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States' policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.”
The problem in America is that is a Muslim moderate thinking. Hell, our own president believes that as do many, many other liberals. Obama heard Jerry Wright's "chickens coming home to roost" speech in church on 9/16/2001 and later went to write a book in Wright's honor, heralding him as a mentor.
Stopping the Ground Zero Mosque under those circumstances is a miracle.
We will need many more. Please pray.
