Obama Backs Ground Zero Mosque at Ramadan Celebration by Pamela Geller, Human Events
President Obama came out Friday evening in favor of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at the hallowed ground of the 9/11 attack.
Obama told the ummah (at an Iftar dinner on the third night of Ramadan) that he supports a triumphal mosque on the cherished site where Islamic jihadists attacked.
If you had any doubt who Obama stood with on 9/11, there can be no doubt in our minds now.
Right after the 9/11 attacks, Obama blamed America, just like the Islamic
supremacist Ground Zero mega-mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.
Sen. Obama said: “We should also examine the foreign policies of the
U.S. to make sure that we occupy the moral high ground in these
conflicts. In particular, we have to examine some of the root causes of
this terrorist activity.”
I believe he planned his announcement on the mosque all along. He waited until Ramadan. Symbolic.
He has now turned our Ground Zero protest
on 911 into a mega-event. The very idea of a 15-story mega-mosque on
that hallowed ground is indecent, offensive and outrageous.
the Ground Zero mosque Imam Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan really wanted
to “reach out” and “heal,” they would give the $120 million that they’re
using to build this mosque to the first responders who are suffering
from exposure to the toxic environment at Ground Zero after Muslim
terrorists brought down the World Trade Center and slaughtered 3,000
Is the President incapable of common decency?
the Ramadan dinner, Obama echoed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in
claiming that the mosque had to go at Ground Zero because of America’s
principle of religious liberty, saying: “Muslims have the same right to
practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes
the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private
property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and
ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom
must be unshakeable.”
But Obama must know that this is not about
religious liberty. No one has suggested abridging the 1st Amendment to
stop the mosque, and to oppose the Ground Zero mosque is not to oppose
the 1st Amendment. There are hundreds of mosques in New York, thousands
This is not a religious issue. This is a national
security issue. And an issue of national dignity and respect for those
who were murdered at that site in the name of Islam.
King (R.-N.Y.) brought some moral clarity to this issue: “President
Obama is wrong. It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community
to build a mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero. While the Muslim
community has the right to build the mosque, they are abusing that right
by needlessly offending so many people who have suffered so much.”
again, Obama puts himself directly at odds with the majority of the
American people, as is his way and the hallmark of his presidency. This
is all explained in detail in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America (Simon & Schuster). And polls show that Americans are overwhelmingly against this mosque.
