Check out my commentary on Palin's opposition to the mosque at World Net Daily:
You betcha! Sarah against Ground Zero
Exclusive: Pamela Geller declares, 'Palin has more
testicular fortitude than all of GOP'–WND
Palin has sided with Americans and American interests. Palin, once
again, does the right right. And it's wildly refreshing. The
Left is twisted in knots. That's what she does. She twists up the
morally bankrupt liberals. The Islamic supremacist mega-mosque that
liberal politicians support is a stab in the eye of every American. The
question is, why there? Why did the terror-tied Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf,
the leader of the initiative to build the mega-mosque at Ground Zero,
spend nearly $5 million in cash to buy the property for a triumphal
mosque a mere 600 feet from the site of the largest attack – an Islamic
attack – on American soil in our history?
There have been 15,644 Islamic attacks across the world since
Sept. 11, 2001. Each one had the imprimatur of an Islamic cleric. What
is being done to expunge the Quran of the violent texts that inspire
jihad? If Rauf is really a moderate, why isn't he spending his time
working on that instead of trying to build this mega-mosque?
Rauf's wife, Daisy Khan, responded to Palin's statement with soothing
"We agree with Ms. Palin that it is time to heal from the wounds
of the tragic events of 9/11. We peace-loving Muslims have a
responsibility to lead the effort of rebuilding Lower Manhattan. We
envision a community center for multi-faith collaboration that is
focused on promoting integration, tolerance of difference and community
cohesion. We welcome the opportunity to discuss with Ms. Palin how
Muslim Americans have an added responsibility to create a
counter-momentum against extremism by building institutions like this center, that will amplify the
voices of the mainstream peace-loving Muslims."
Yet there is a great deal of evidence that Daisy Khan is not
being honest: Rauf himself has been patently dishonest. Bloomberg and
the rest should take note. They haven't. Yet Rauf dissembled about
whether his 13-story "community center for multi-faith collaboration" at
Ground Zero would contain a mosque at all.
While Daisy Khan speaks about "promoting integration, tolerance
of difference and community cohesion," and Rauf has told American
reporters that the mosque should encourage religious dialogue, he has
told the Arabic media that he doesn't believe in religious dialogue. He
told American media that the mosque would be funded only by Muslims in
America, but he told the Arabic press that it was getting funding from
Muslim countries worldwide. He portrays himself as a moderate, but
openly supports Shariah (Islamic law) and recently refused to denounce Hamas.
Nonetheless, his response and the response of other mosque
organizers to the overwhelming pain this mosque has caused has been ad
hominem attacks. The opponents of the mosque are smeared as "racists,"
"bigots" and "Islamophobes."
I find the Cordoba Initiative's callousness toward the grief it
is causing radically intolerant. But only Sarah Palin among high-profile
politicians has dared to say so.
And even though Bloomberg and all the other New York
establishment politicians have lined up in favor of the mega-mosque, the
game is not over by a long shot. New Yorkers have witnessed how a tiny
fish stalled and effectively killed a wonderful project for the rotting
West Side Highway and wharfs. We have seen the city impose draconian
smoking regulations, automobile and traffic regulations and even
restaurant food bans (transfats). But this mosque is getting
unprecedented rapid-fire action: cooperation from city officials who hadn't moved in 15 years
before they started moving on this. There is more grease on these
wheels than in the Gulf.
By contrast, Palin restates the obvious
