*** Join SIOA and FDI on Sepember 11, 2010 at 2pm, on Park Place (between Church and West Broadway) as we pay our respects to the murdered and demonstrate against the Ground Zero mega mosque opening on September 11, 2011. ***
Our first protest on D-day, June 6th, drew 10,000 people. Witnessing Bloomberg’s relentless push for this egregious insult, our voices must be heard.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS. WE need to be at Ground Zero, September 11, 2010, now more than ever.
World leaders, prominent politicians and 911 family members will be speaking. This is a solemn protest.
Please, no inflammatory signs. “Ground Zero is sacred
ground.” “Ground Zero is a war Memorial.” “Ground Zero Mosque is
We will begin with interfaith prayer and the playing of “Taps” for the 911 victims.
On Sunday, June 6th, a multi-ethnic, multi-racial coalition of
Americans opposed to Islamic violence and intolerance rallied at the
site of the World Trade Center in New York City. Part I and Part II.
9/11 families were joined by immigrants from India, Russia, Egypt,
Israel, Africa, Iran and Europe to show opposition to the construction
of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero. Others flew in from overseas to speak
or just to share their particular ethnic communities’ experiences at the
hands of moslems.
These are parents and spouses of firefighters killed on 9/11. The
rally took place just a minute’s walk from Ladder 10 Firehouse, where
their loved ones were stationed for duty that terrible day. Ladder 10
lost seven firefighters.
Crowd estimates ranged from 5,000 (NYPD) to 10,000. The crowd
overflowed the police barrier enclosures that ran the full length of two
city blocks. This photo shows the enclosure in front of the stage at
the intersection of Liberty and Church Streets. The second enclosure ran
the length of the next block and can be seen on the other side of the
Pamela Geller, Executive Director of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), was the rally’s principal organizer. Geller’s Atlas Shrugs blog is one of the top 30 political blogs in the nation.
Geller is one of the foremost voices for freedom standing up against
the tyranny and denial of human rights that Islamization brings. She has
been a vocal and vigorous defender of religious freedom in the face of
the spread into America of Islam’s death penalty for those who leave the religion.
Thousands of additional participants filled the treed area of Zuccotti Park.
“Ground Zero is a war memorial, Ground Zero is a burial
ground. We are asking for sensitivity…It is unconscionable to build a
shrine to the very ideology that inspired the jihadist attacks at Ground
Zero, right there. We are asking the imam Rauf and Daisy Khan to be
sensitive. For mutual respect and mutual understanding that is demanded
of us every day.
There’s a hair-trigger sensitivity in the muslim world, you can’t run
the cartoons, you can’t say Mohammed, this is offensive. This is an
offensive mosque. To build a shrine, an Islamic flag of conquest on the
sacred ground the cherished site, of a conquered land. This is historic,
this is Islamic history. It’s what they do. The St. Sofia in Turkey,
the al-Quds, at the holiest Jewish site in Israel. Not here. This is
where we take a stand. We must take a stand. We must say no.”
