Protest mosque

Despite weather forecasts of thunderstorms and rain, the skies were clear and beautiful — but not as beautiful as this patriotic crowd of great Americans and Europeans. It was a real cross section of humanity ………. every race, creed, color and religion were out in all their glory.

Robert and I were expecting 500; imagine our wonder when close to 5,000 showed up. Some estimates ranged as high as 10,000. This is just the beginning. We are going to sue to designate the Burlington building a war memorial. There is a large piece of an airplane in that building. That is a war memorial. Instead of a mega mosque at ground zero, let's build a 911 war memorial to the victims. The current plan for a 911 museum is several floors underground, like a dungeon. And the mosque plan calls for the mosque to be on the top floor, looking down triumphantly on the burial ground of Ground Zero. 

I don't think so. The Burlington building must be a war memorial, an historic landmark. We will sue to make that happen. We will protest again in September and stage sit-ins in front of the mosque should they try to break ground. Three thousand good and decent Americans did not die in vain.

They started showing up long
before the rally began at noon today. They came from Washington state,
California, Texas, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New
Hampshire, Maine, South Carolina, Florida, and elsewhere. They were
Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, atheists, Muslims of
conscience. They were lovers of freedom.

An hour before the rally began, they numbered 1,000. Zuccotti Park's
owners sided with the Islamic supremacists and withdrew their permit to
allow us to gather there, and so the police repeatedly requested that
people leave the park and move into the pens that the police had set up
at Church and Liberty streets. Before noon, however, the pens were full
— and so, with free citizens having every legal right to be in the
park, the park became a site for the rally despite the best efforts of
its clueless dhimmi owners.

By the time the rally was in full swing, the crowd filled the pens,
the park, and the other side of the street. Police estimated that 5,000
people were there, and other estimates ranged as high as 10,000. The
crowd carried signs expressing their love for freedom, their contempt
for Sharia, and their anger at Islamic supremacism and insult to the
memories of those murdered on 9/11 that this mosque represents.

And we had a full spectrum of top quality speakers. There were 9/11
family members, including C. Lee Hanson, who lost his son,
daughter-in-law and granddaughter on 9/11. There were people who
experienced the oppression of Sharia firsthand, such as the Egyptian
ex-Muslim Nonie Darwish, the Sudanese ex-slave Simon Deng, and the Hindu
human rights activist Babu Suseelan. There was Germano Riviera, who
worked recovering remains from the ruins of the World Trade Center; Alan
T. DeVona, the patrol sergeant on duty on September 11, 2001; and Keith
LeBow, an ironworker who was one of the first responders on the scene
on September 11. There was Herb London of the Hudson Institute and
Beverly Carlson of the Band of Mothers — and a host of other speakers,
all lovers of America and lovers of freedom.

The theme among all the speakers was common: the mosque is an insult
to the Americans who were murdered there. It is a manifestation of a
radically intolerant belief system that is incompatible with the
freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. And even with all the
political elites against us, and the mainstream media indifferent or
compromised (5,000 to 10,000 people at the rally, and no mainstream
media coverage!), we will prevail. All we have on our side is the truth.

Pamela Geller did interviews with Al-Jazeera, AP, Chilean television, Italian television and many others; I was
interviewed by Italian television and TV Asia. ABC? NBC? CBS? CNN? Even
FOX? AWOL.

And the truth is powerful. The forecast had called for rain, but it
didn't start raining in New York until after the rally had broken up.
Many took it as a sign that we represented the cause of right and
justice. And even with all the indifference of the politicians and the
media, we sent a signal today: we will not let this injustice stand. We
will be rallying again in September, and again when construction begins
on the mega-mosque. We will be filing suit against the Federal
Government, asking that the Burlington Coat Factory site where the
mega-mosque is going to be built be designated a war memorial, a la
Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, etc., because of the part of one of the 9/11
airplanes that crashed into the roof there, and that is in the makeshift
mosque that Muslims are using there now.

And above all: we will never give up.

UPDATE: Check out this picture that El Marco took outside the 911 mosque yesterday after Friday prayers. The Muslim with glasses emerged from the mosque after prayers, approached all the three media outlets present (French, Italian and Canadian), and slandered me with the most vicious, outrageous lies. He said, "Pamela Geller called for the firebombing of the mosque." He repeatedly said it. This is a dangerous incitement to violence against me. Broadcasting this jihadist libel to the ummah. It is a horrible, disgusting lie.

UPDATE: Urban Infidel was there and has great coverage.

Pamela Geller, the co-founder of Stop Islamization
of America, speaks passionately about jihad, sharia, and why the idea of a
mosque in this spot is so wrong.

“We are here today in honor of D-Day, when
the Allied Forces began to defeat Nazism. And the symbolism should not be
lost
. Not only should the symbolism not be lost, but we’re on
the corner of Church and Liberty
.

Ground Zero is a war memorial. Ground Zero is a burial ground…We are asking
for sensitivity…

This is part of the plane that went into the Trade Center, that’s in the
Burlington Coat Factory (the building that was bought with mysterious
funding for the mosque)
. Designate it as a historic landmark, like Pearl
Harbor. We are going to sue the U.S. Government to get a designation of war
memorial status.”

The crowd gathers. Tower 7 is the tall building in
the background.

Simon Deng, who was enslaved as a child by Arabs in his native land, Sudan,
speaks. Slavery, genocide, terr0rism and sharia must not be tolerated. Many
Americans, including Mayor Bloomberg, don’t understand enough about what Islamic
countries are like. Even in the more moderate moslem countries, like Egypt,
churches are burned and there is no tolerance of other religions. Former Moslem
Noni Darwish, who grew up in Gaza and Egypt, also addressed the rally. She
said “We are threatened right here in America by mosques that are issuing fatwas
against us…I understand the symbolism of a mosque…they’ve been built
historically on the sites of Jewish temples, churches, Hindu temples — it’s a
sign of being conquered. After they conquer a country, every church, every
temple, must be converted to a mosque. You know the people who come here and ask
for sensitivity training: where are the churches in Saudi Arabia? Even in Egypt,
the churches have been burned…Do we need an area of pilgrimage for muslims in
New York? Our 3,000 fellow Americans who were killed on 9/11 are looking down on
us, and they are saying we don’t want to hear “Allah hu Akbar” any more.”

There are moslems who understand that the location for the mosque is a bad
idea too. In an editorial in today’s Boston Globe, Jeff Jacoby writes:

“Stephen Suleyman Schwartz, a devout Muslim and director of the Center for Islamic Pluralism in
Washington
, notes that the spiritual leader of the Cordoba Initiative, Imam Feisal Abdul
Rauf
, describes himself as a Sufi — a Muslim focused on Islamic mysticism and spiritual
wisdom
. But “building a 15-story Islamic center at ground zero isn’t
something a Sufi would do,’’ according to Schwartz, also a practitioner of
Sufism. “Sufism is supposed to be based on sensitivity toward others,’’ yet
Cordoba House comes across as “grossly insensitive.’’ He rejects Rauf’s stance
that a highly visible Muslim presence at ground zero is the way to
make a statement opposing what happened on 9/11
. Better, in his view, is the
approach of many Muslims “who hate terrorism and who have gone privately to the
site and recited prayers for the dead silently and unperceived by others.’’

Robert Spencer of Jihadwatch. From his report:

“By the time the rally was in full swing, the crowd filled the pens, the
park, and the other side of the street. Police estimated that 5,000 people were
there, and other estimates ranged as high as 10,000. The crowd carried signs
expressing their love for freedom, their contempt for Sharia, and their anger at

granddaughter on 9/11. There were people who experienced the oppression of
Sharia firsthand, such as the Egyptian ex-Muslim Nonie Darwish, the Sudanese
ex-slave Simon Deng, and the Hindu human rights activist Babu Suseelan. There
was Dennis McKenna, who worked recovering remains from the ruins of the World
Trade Center; Alan T. DeVona, the patrol sergeant on duty on September 11, 2001;
and Keith LeBow, an ironworker who was one of the first responders on the scene
on September 11. There was Herb London of the Hudson Institute and Beverly

rally, and no mainstream media coverage!), we will prevail. All we have on our
side is the truth.”

Dan Maloney of Gathering of Eagles, a veterans’
group whose motto is “fighting the insurgency at home”. Our men and women who
are deployed in the middle east and elsewhere are putting their lives on the
line, but so are those who are speaking out against radical Islam here at
home.

(Four Videos posted so far. Check back as more videos will be posted!)

The D-Day at Ground Zero Rally was a success!  We honored those who died on
the beaches of Normandy and those who were murdered on 9-11 . . There will be
many videos posted of those who spoke.  Leading off with one of the co-sponsors
of the rally, Pamela Geller of SOIA (Stop The Islamization of America). Will
write more later…meanwhile, we’ll let the videos “do the talking”:

The planned Mega-Mosque would offer swimming pools and pretty meeting
rooms where people can gather and read and "ask questions." It would become "Dawah
Central" at Ground Zero. It must be stopped!
