Another Historic D-Day Anniversary: Ground Zero Mosque Offense

Protest mosque

Ground Zero mosque protest, June 6, 2010, El Marco photo

Atlas readers should be proud. Today is D-Day, the 69th anniversary of the day when Naziphobes crossed the Atlantic to defeat the most brutal and vicious ideology on the face of the earth at that time.

Today is another D-day anniversary. Three years ago today, we held the first Ground Zero mosque protest to stop the building of a 15-story triumphal mosque at Ground Zero. Over eight thousand patriots converged on Ground Zero to protest the mega-mosque. We prevailed then, too. And if they try again, we'll be back.

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.

And this:

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, addresses rally.

Slavery, genocide, terrorism 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

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.”

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 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 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 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

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 onIslamic 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.’’

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.

The brave organizer, Pamela Geller. See her amazing blog, Atlas Shrugs.
There are videos, interviews, and text about the Ground Zero mosque,
about honor killings, sharia, and much more. Add it to your daily
reading list if you want to understand Islam and the middle east.

Update: videos of speeches are up at No Mosque at Ground Zero.

More here: June 16, 2010, New York, N.Y.,   –  by El Marco

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.

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.

Thousands of additional participants filled the treed area of Zuccotti Park.

Pamela Geller:

“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.” 

Robert Spencer holds a photo of airplane parts that crashed through the roof of the Burlington Coat Factory
(site of the controversial mosque) on 9/11. The fact that the building
was unihabitable due to damage sustained on 9/11 makes it part of
“Ground Zero”. It is 600 feet from the site of the Twin Towers.

“This is a war memorial. This has the blood of our
American brothers on it. And I say that we designate the Burlington
(coat factory) part of a war memorial, that it’s a historic landmark,
like Gettysburg, like Pearl Harbor. And we are going to sue the U.S.
government to get a designation of war memorial status.

I do not believe that the landmarks commission controlled by Mayor
Bloomberg, is going to stop this mosque. It’s not going to happen.
Here’s Omar Muhamedi, on his human rights council, a CAIR lawyer, who BLOOMBERG RUSHES MOSQUE APPROVAL!!

E-MAIL MAYOR BLOOMBERG : http://www.nyc.gov/html/mail/html/mayor.html

Robert Spencer is the co-founder with Pamela Geller of STOP
ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA, which sponsored the rally.  Mr. Spencer is the
author of eight indispensable books on Islam and head of the influential web site Jihadwatch.

Jihad Watch covers jihad in all its manifestations, and emphasizes
the need for all the actual and potential victims of jihad violence and
oppression — Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, secular Muslims,
atheists, to join together to defend universal human rights.

Robert Spencer blasted New York politicians and dominant liberal media:

Are you tired of being smeared?

Every NY politician and every mainstream media source on this
story has said this is a story about tolerance, against bigotry, and
who do you think they’re calling the bigots?
The Americans who are standing up for American values against the most radically intolerant and hateful agenda on the planet…

We were at the Community Board meeting when they approved this mosque 29 to 1.
They said that the mosque leaders say that they believe in tolerance
and so, OK, are you tired of being treated like a moron? They say they
believe in tolerance, so that’s the end of the story as far as the
mainstream media and the mayor of New York, and everybody else is
concerned. Except for everybody with a grain of sense and eyes in our

The imam Faisal Abdul Rauf is on record in favor of bringing Islamic law, Sharia, into the United States.
Read his book. He says there should be restrictions on the freedom of
speech in the United States. It’s in there. I’ll bet the mayor hasn’t
read it. The community board hasn’t read it, and Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf
said he believes in tolerance. He believes in Sharia. Sharia denies the
freedom of speech. Under Sharia, if you are muslim and you leave Islam,
you are liable to be killed.

Under sharia, there is discrimination institutionalized against women and against non-muslims.
That is anti-American, that is anti-freedom, that is anti-human, and we
will not let it stand. And so, we are here to stand for America, to
stand for the people we lost on that day, in an act of war, by the same
ideology that will be taught in that mosque. And make no mistake, they
say it will be different, but they will be reading the same Koran and
teaching the same Islamic law that led those 19 hijackers to destroy the
World Trade Center and murder 3,000 Americans.

site are in the background. The green tent, center, is located
immediately behind the stage.



The dominant liberal establishment
media has mis-reported this gathering as a crowd of only 500 supposedly
motivated by racial hatred. Typical is Salon Magazine, which
called the 9/11 families, firemen, policemen and international victims
of Islamic terrorism “various wingnuts, racists, riled up nativists and
terrified fools.
” Of course this is how the left thinks of any persons expressing the tiniest bit of patriotic sentiment. Watch the video above, and see who the media calls “500 racist teabaggers”.

Simon Deng is an American citizen from southern Sudan. He is also an
escaped slave. He is a leading human rights activist who speaks out
about genocide perpetrated against blacks by Arab moslems in Sudan. The
history of Arab colonization of Africa is one of islamization, wholesale
slave trading, racism and genocide. Simon Deng is a warner of the
horrors of unbridled Islam and sharia law.

“This is an insult to America and this is an insult to
New Yorkers. I’m outraged. I’m so mad and upset because of the insult to
those who died here. The last words of the terrorists, it was Allah hu
Akhbar when they came to kill us. And they want to build a mosque to say
every single minute “Allah hu akbar” every minute here.

Let me tell you this, I came from a country where The policy of
Islamization it took me to being a slave when I was nine years old. The policy of Islamization slaughtered three millions of my fellow Christians in southern Sudan.
The policy of Arabization and Islamization left seven million of my
fellow Christians refugees in Sudan, the biggest refugees since WWII.

In the state that I came from in southern Sudan, there used to be one
mosque. I was in Sudan a month ago. There are 113 mosques. When they
are building these mosques today, they’re going to build another one
here tomorrow, and another one there, and another one there, and you’re
going to have a million mosques. NO! Even the muslims themselves, I
talked to hundreds of muslims, they agree, the mosque should not be here
because of what happened here. The decent muslim agrees with all of you that the mosque, by being built here, it is an insult to those who died here. NO! NO! We, the New Yorkers, have to stand shoulder to shoulder, and stop this mosque.”

For those on the left who deny the nature of Islamic totalitarian
aggression, I made this photo in black and white. For me, it’s a black
and white issue.

Simon Deng is not the son nor the great-grandson of a slave. He is an
escaped slave. He was kidnapped at age 9 by an Arab moslem and
transported down the Nile from southern Sudan. There are still public
slave markets in Sudan’s cities today, under an Islamist dictatorship.
In Mr. Deng’s case, he was given to an Arab family related to the
slaver. He was treated horribly, like a sub-human by his master and the

Simon Deng is of the Shilluk tribe. The distinctive scarring
decorating his brow is worn by all Shilluk men. At age 14 he escaped
with the help of a Shilluk stranger who he recognized by his decorated
brow. Millions of Sudanese black Africans have been killed by Arabs in
recent decades, and many million more were enslaved for export to the
middle east over the centuries of Arab colonization. Moslems still
enslave black men, women and children in a number of countries in Africa today.

Since slavery is permitted by sharia law, moslem countries have used
secular law to ban it, but only after long anti-slavery campaigns from
western nations. Some countries outlawed slavery only recently: Qatar in
1952, Yemen and Saudi Arabia in 1962, Mauritania in 1980. But slavery
continues to be a fact of life in a number of moslem countries due to
islamic culture and the fact that sharia law remains unchanged.

Simon Deng will lead the second SUDAN FREEDOM WALK
from the United Nations in New York to the U.S. Senate in Washington,
D.C. The march starts on September 28 from Dag Hammerskold Plaza,
adjacent to the U.N. in Manhattan.

After the first Sudan Freedom Walk,
two moslem men struck Mr. Deng with an automobile in an assassination
attempt. With a broken shoulder, ribs, and two collapsed lungs, Mr. Deng
was taken for dead, but was revived and spent two months in intensive
care. It’s worthy to note here that our English word “assassin” comes from the Arabic word for those who kill for religious and political motives.

I spoke only briefly with Maureen Hunt (center), who worked at Cantor
Fitzgerald for 21 years. Her sister, Kathleen, also worked at the World
Trade Center, and died on 9/11.  Maureen would have died also, but that
morning her daughter, PFC Courtney Davila, left for Kuwait with the
U.S. Army at 5:00 a.m. and she was there to see her off. Private Davila
served 9 months in Kuwait and lives with the knowledge that but for her
deployment on 9/11 2001 her mother would have died along with her aunt

Joyce and Vincent Boland with a photo of their son, Vincent, Jr., who
died on 9/11 while working as a Marshall McLelan business analyst on
the 97th floor of Tower 1. He was 25 years old and Mrs. Boland said of
him ,”No mother could have asked for a better son.”

Port Authority and NYPD officers kept watch over the rally and were
well aware of the need for heightened security at this event. One of
their own Port Authority officers, WTC Sergeant Alan T. De Vona was on
duty at the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001, and was one of the first
to help victims of the terrorist attack. He spoke these words to the
SIOA rally:

“It’s almost nine years. I’m hoping that America is
watching. I’m hoping that America is remembering. Because, make no
mistake, September 11 was an act of war. And thank the military that has
lost almost 5,000 troops from that day, defending us. I don’t know what
to say to jar America’s memory. I want America to remember.

What do you need to hear? You want to hear that there were people
that were so frightened that they jumped out of buildings and they
exploded on impact? You want to hear that there were dismembered bodies
all over? You want to hear that we looked at people that were gutted?
There are things that we haven’t spoken about.

We couldn’t stop the people from responding. The Fire Department that
day lost 343 firefighters, they were unstoppable. They poured into that
building. The Port Authority Police: 37 police officers. NYPD 23 police
officers. EMS lost people. Civilians were there. They helped people.
They died helping people. America, where are you on this? Where are you? Don’t you remember? What is it going to take for you to remember?

NYPD Sergeant Cuci on patrol next to the speakers’ platform.

“There was a 14 story building of rubble that smoked
until December of 2001. On September 12th, we all came together, people
from all over this country, people from other countries, came together
to help us. … They told us that it would take over a year to clear that.
But no, we did it within nine months. Construction workers, the Red
Cross, the National Guard, everyone was here. Everyone walked through
six inches of dust for over six weeks.

Please, America, don’t forget. We said on that day that we
would never forget, and I beg you America, please, never, never forget.
This is hallowed ground here.”

Hindu human rights activist Prasad Yalamanchi holds a sign detailing
moslem violence in Pakistan. Clockwise, a man beheaded in the street,
the remains of Benazir Bhutto in the street after a suicide bomb attack,
a woman disfigured and blinded by acid attack for some transgression of
sharia law, refugees in a tent camp.

One of the favorite myths of the intellectually challenged is that of
a “Golden Age” of islamic tranquil coexistence with Christians and Jews
in Cordoba, Spain. The truth is much more believable. Cordoba’s two
greatest citizens (after Seneca, 4 B.C.- 65 A.D.) were the Arab scholar
Averroes (1126 – 1198) and the Jewish sage and doctor Maimonides

Averroes played a major role in codifying islamic thought and in
bringing the works of Aristotle to the attention of the west. Both
Averroes and Maimonides were expelled from Cordoba by the reactionary
fanaticism of Moors, who despised and burned books. Both lived out their
lives in exile. Maimonides in Egypt, and Averroes in Morocco.

One of the first arguments that apologist for islam will shoot out is
the Cordoba myth. The true story of the main hero of that myth,
Averroes, destroys the myth. Besides, as Aayan Hirsi Ali points out,
what good is a myth about 1,000 years ago in Spain when people are
having their heads chopped off and being suicide-bombed today? It’s
academic and lame.

One thing about Islamic jihad is that it’s global. It’s not a middle
eastern problem, it’s not an Israel-Palestinian problem, it’s not a
World Trade Center problem. All those are just fronts in the global
jihad. And one of the nations that has suffered most in the global jihad
throughout history is India.

Hindu human rights activist, native of India, Professor Babu Suseelan:

“I was born in the largest democracy in the world, and we
lost half of our land, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir, that
were once majority Hindu. Now we lost it and it became muslim majority.
What did the muslims do with the hindus living in their countries? They
slaughtered them. They completely wiped them out. …

I read the Koran. Read Koran if you want to understand
the terroristic doctrine and criminal treatise on the world. Of all the
Koran, there are 164 specific verses instigating directly muslims to go
against the kaffir and the infidel and conduct terrorism to wipe them
out. It is surprising, they claim it is a religious book. But in their
religious book, there is not a single word about love. I cannot
understand in the Koran you read the entire words, you will not see the word ‘love’.
Islamic religion is not a religion of love and compassion it is a
criminal treatise for hostility, anger, violence and terrorism against

There were only 10 Mosques in New York City in 1970. There were over
100 in 2001, including 17 in Manhattan. There is no reason to allow
construction of a 15 stories Mosque at Ground Zero. Muslims paid $4.85
million in cash for the property. Islamic leaders have not explained to
the public where the cash came from. It is reported that the funding
came from Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Iran, the leading promoters of
Islamism around the world.

There are nearly 57 Islamic countries in the world. Is there any
Islamic country where Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Hindus can build
their religious centers?

· Imams are busy issuing Fatwa against writers, journalists and
cartoonists. Why there is no Fatwa issued against Jihadi terrorism?

· If Islam is peace, why hostility, Jihad war, and violence are
taught at Madrasas? Why there is no peace in any Islamic countries?

· Riots invariably take place after the Friday prayers at the
Mosques. Is it not because of the fiery sermons of the Imams based on
the Koran?

· Islam has nothing in common with secularism, pluralism, democracy,
tolerance and Human Rights. Why should we allow Muslims to construct
Mosques to preach hatred against infidels?

· Are you aware more than 98% of terrorists arrested around the world are Muslims? Why?

The Islamic prime Minister of Turkey Erdogan clearly and loudly said
“The Mosques are our barracks, the Domes are helmets, the Minarets are
Bayonets and the faithful are soldiers.” Erdogan’s vision of Islam is
the same as that of Bin- Laden, Colonel Khadafy, Mullah Omar, Imam
Yavalaki, Al-Zwahiri, Ayatollah Khomeini, and the Saudi King which
awarded the Islamic Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan “The King Faisal
International prize for service to Islam.”

The construction of an Islamic barrack in the heart of America is to
train jihadis for the next phase of Islamic invasion. The Islamic
barrack will train the Muslims in the way of Islam. Since the days of
Mohamed, the way of Islam is jihad. Mosques will ensure that newly
converted Muslims become reliable Jihadis.

The issues at stake will certainly affect the heart of American
freedom, democracy, cultural values and tolerance. America is a tolerant
country that allows for the free worship of all its citizens. But our
tolerance has limits. Do we have to tolerate intolerant Islamic ideology
and Muslims who preach intolerant Islam?”

Hindu human rights activists Narain Kataria, Prasad Yalamanchi and
unidentified friend came from Mississippi and Chicago with banners and
flyers highlighting the radical statements of imam Rauf and his jihadist

Salah Choudhury, himself a moslem, denounces the mosque project and questions if  Imam Rauf is a fraud
and liar who is an apologist for terrorists. Rauf’s statements after
9/11 echo those of Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers who both approved of
the attacks.

“As a believing Muslim, it is hard to see a mosque at
Ground Zero in New York City as anything other than another horror– a
kick on the face to everyone who is still heavy with shock at the tragic
death of 3,000 people killed by Islamist militants during the attack on
9/11. The mosque will cost over US$ 100 million; by now, money is
already being shifted in the fund for its construction. Incidentally, a
major segment of this money is coming from Arab nations, especially

At this time, the largest mosque and cultural center in Manhattan is
The Islamic Cultural Center of New York. This $17 million dollar center
opened on April 15, 1991, just after the First Gulf War ended. Since
September 11th, 2001, a number of controversial statements have came
from at least two of the Center’s leaders, both of them blaming the
Jewish population for the attacks and denying any Muslim involvement.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is planning the Islamic Community Center
and mosque near Ground Zero says his critics are bigots, and that the
project will stamp out terrorism — not fan the flames: “We condemn
terrorists,” said Rauf, who is leading the charge to build the Cordoba
House, as it is called. “We recognize it exists in our faith, but we are
committed to eradicate it. We want to rebuild this community. This is
about moderate Muslims who intend to be and want to be part of the

However, Rauf is also on record telling CNN, right after the 9/11
attacks, “U.S. policies were an accessory to the crime that happened. We
[the U.S.] have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in
the world. Osama bin Laden was made in the USA.”

Elsewhere, Rauf has stated that terrorism will end only when the West
acknowledges the harm it has done to Muslims. And that it was
Christians who started mass attacks on civilians.

According to anti-jihadist author, Madeline Brooks, “Rauf has
numerous ties to CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Department of
Justice funding case brought against Hamas, an openly terrorist
organization. CAIR is also the initiator of numerous cases designed to
intimidate non-Muslims from criticizing aggressive Muslim behavior, and
to use our own legal and democratic presses to undermine and dominate
America, forcing it to become Islamic.

“Rauf calls himself a Sufi, evoking among non-Muslims a “peace and
love” image. But that’s not the whole picture. Sufism has many sides to
it, including the Koranic injunction to spread Islam one way or another,
and it has a rich history of waging war, too. Could it be that one of
the frequently used tools of war, lying to the enemy, explains the
contradiction between Rauf’s image as reconciler of religions and his
sympathies and associations with terrorists?”

Imam Rauf is a permanent trustee of New York’s uptown Islamic
Cultural Center, founded by his Muslim Brotherhood father. Until Sept.
28, 2001, the ICC employed Imam Sheik Muhammad Gemeaha, an Al-Azhar
University envoy to the U.S. One week later, from the “safety” of Egypt,
Gemeaha said “only the Jews” could have perpetrated September 11. If
Americans knew, “they would have done to Jews what Hitler did.” Allah
says Jews “disseminate corruption in the land” and spread “heresy,
homosexuality, alcoholism, and drugs,” he added.

Gemeaha’s successor at ICC was no better: Omar Saleem Abu-Namous saw no “conclusive evidence” proving Muslims responsible.

These pronouncements represent institutional discriminatory precepts
embedded within Sharia law. Rauf’s associates, who operated under his
trusteeship at the 96th Street mosque, uttered them, and not
surprisingly, they mirrored Rauf’s own hateful post-9/11 comments.

In March, Rauf stated in Arabic: “I don’t believe in interfaith dialogue.”

On May 26, Rauf gave an interview to Sa’da Abdul Maksoud on the well-trafficked Hadiyul-Islam website:

Throughout my discussions with contemporary Muslim theologians, it is
clear an Islamic state can be established in more than just a single
form or mold. It can be established through a kingdom or a democracy.
The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Sharia
that are required to govern.

Rauf’s statements in Arabic directly contradicted his statements to
English speakers — i.e., that the U.S. Constitution is Sharia-compliant.

these buildings on 9/11, but what’s happening here with this mosque is a
continuation of the attack on all of us. I liken it to the Twilight
Zone, where everything you believe that can’t happen does happen,
especially with this administration. Think about it: we’re standing here
on the 66th anniversary of D-Day when our brave soldiers took a beach
head far away and spilled their blood in defense of America, freedom and
liberty. We, the people, need to have the same courage that our
military had 66 years ago today. And we must say, “No, not on our watch,
are we going to allow this, right here on Ground Zero.”

I look around and I see the photographs of loved ones lost that
appeared in this park when we were here nine years ago. Those families
still die a little bit every single day, at the loss of their loved
ones. How the hell can we justify more madness right here in our own
back yard? I’m telling you now, guys, unless we the people stand up to
this insanity, the attacks will continue on all of us. Every American
must remember what happened here on this pile not so long ago, and to
consider that we have the insane suggestion to build a mosque it is
really a mockery on all of you, every one of you.

The attack continues today. and every single one of you must stand up
for America and let our political leaders, (what a thought: leaders,
these are the leaders we send?) Let’s get them out of here and send the
people that actually represent you.

… nearly two thousand of the first responders have succumbed to their
illnesses that they were exposed here at Ground Zero. The death toll
mounts. I also have to mention my dear son, Michael, who is a serving
U.S. Marine, who joined right after 9/11, and how do you think he and
his Marines, and our soldiers feel around the world, as we even
entertain this madness? Let’s send them a message: No to this mockery,
and God bless America every single day.”

I noticed a fair bit of canoodling and open displays of love and
affection going on among these racist teabagger demons. This type of
activity can get you into big trouble under the barbaric sharia law that
is the mega-mosque’s stated purpose to promote in America. Recently, a
Saudi man was sentenced to four months in prison and ninety brutal
lashes for doing in a shopping mall exactly what the couple above are
doing. Just a little kiss in public can lead to death in many moslem
communities in the east, but also in the west.


Band of Mothers founder, Beverly Perlson challenged moslem mothers:

My son did four deployments with the 82nd Airborne. ANd
you know what, my life changed when those muslim fanatics butchered
3,000 Americans. But my life didn’t change as much as Debbie Lee’s life
changed. Her son was the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq. Merrillee
Carlson, her son Michael didn’t come home. There’s over 5,000 brave
American soldiers that gave their lives to keep this kind of nonsense
away from us. We need to fight against this mosque.

You know what, Mayor Bloomberg, President Obama, and every
Republican and Democrat, I’m calling on you to call out the muslims. I’m
sick and tired of appeasing muslim fanaticism, aren’t you?

We need to stop to it, but I’m asking myself as a mother whose son fought through four deployments to keep us safe, I’m
asking myself, where are the muslim mothers, and why aren’t they
denouncing the fact that their little children are blowing up their own
Killing them, blowing them up, and taking our sons and
daughters down with them. Somebody needs to call them out. Yes, let’s
call them out. Where are you, muslim mothers? It’s time for you to
denounce this murderous behavior from the people in your race against my
sons and daughters…

I’d like to send a message to President Obama: two things, President
Obama. In case you didn’t know this, we have lost 440 soldiers since
2009 and I haven’t heard one word about it on the media. I haven’t heard
anything coming from you. You need to thank our troops every day for
keeping you safe.

Nelly Braginskaya of terror and mourning with a heavy Russian accent:

I lost my son and I lost my grandchildren also. Alex was
38 years old. He went for a conference North Tower, 108th floor, and he
never came back. First of all, I want to tell fellow Americans, thank
you very much what you came to support us, to support our city. All
Americans, thank you guys.

Most of our family doesn’t have a grave. Even people who have
grave in cemetery, they get just small piece of body, from mother, from
father, from son, rest of the body is ash and blood, and everything on
the Ground Zero. This is the grave, this is the burial place.

And I don’t want to say what all moslem is terrorist. Of course not.
But 19 people who killed 3000 Americans. They was moslem. And we don’t
want mosque on Ground Zero. They can build any place, but not Ground
Zero. I want our voice can hear. Our mayor, our press, our Governor,
everybody, help me to say Never Mosque on Ground Zero. Never!

I will now tell something else. If moslem want that we respect them,
they have to respect us. This is how respect works. Only two-way.
Somebody respect us, we respect them.  I feel that  this is a slap on
the face, to families, to New York, to all America, to all of our
country. If you think same like I think, let’s say again, NEVER MOSQUE
ON GROUND ZERO. I believe everybody, from God, has permission to be alive. Israel also has permission to be alive.

Dyer and Gary Jules journalism students at York College, with Pamela
Geller. Not one major network sent a satalite truck or camera crew to
this event. Without bloggers this newsworthy event would have remained
unknown to the public and history.

Pamela Geller is greeted by Hindu human rights activists Prasad Yalamanchi and Narain Kataria.

Bhupinder Singh Bhurji (Sikh), Pamela Geller (Jew), and Robert Spencer (Christian).

Singh Bhurji is the president of the  NAMDHARI SIKH FOUNDATION. The
foundation is a member of the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical
Islam (HRCARI). HRCARI is a coalition of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians from
Sudan, Egypt and Iraq, moderate Muslims and Jews — who are victims and
targets of radical Islam around the globe. He said, at another rally:

“Radical Islamists are killing people in
India, trying to dominate that nation. And here too they come with
violence against “infidels.” We are “infidels united,” standing
together, brown, black and white, against this epoch’s fascist
movement. Radical Islam wants to dominate entire world. They want
everyone to surrender. Islam radical or otherwise. They want to put the
Islamic flag on White House.”

Usama Dakdok, an Egyptian Copt (Christian) who teaches Americans what
the Koran and Hadith actually say, with Geller and Spencer.

Because of Islamic terrorism, America and the world have seen massive
new security measures become a way of life. Anyone openly critical of
Islam, or terrorist ideology, must surround themselves with security, or
live in hiding. Those courageous enough to confront islamism are
criticized by the cowards and appeasers of the left who seek safety by
supporting the enemy. Moderate moslems were silent when Theo van Gogh
was brutally murdered in Amsterdam, just as moderate moslems in the
United States are generally reluctant to speak out against violent
Islam. Moderate moslems also face great danger in speaking out.

Geller and Spencer will press on despite the danger. They hope to
inspire Americans to stand up and say enough of political correctness
and work to stem the galloping islamization of America and Europe.

After the rally, I took this photo on the 5 train headed to Grand
Central Station. The poster on the wall shows an unattended package
under a bench in a train station. The Spanish caption warns; “SI VES
ALGO, DI ALGO”, or “If you see something, say something”. Since one of
Mayor Bloomberg’s moslem lawyer buddies sued passengers for reporting to
authorities the bizarre behavior of the “flying imams”, many Americans
got the message that doing the right thing can get you in a lot of

Immediately to my right on the train, I did
see something extremely unusual. A number of passengers were staring,
as was I, in utter disbelief of what appeared to be a man dressed as a
moslem woman carrying a large bag over the shoulder. The more I looked
the more I was convinced it was a man. To this day, I do not know if
that was a man or a woman. I don’t know if anyone reported this to
authorities and I will always wonder about this bizarre figure.

With increasing frequency, Islamic
terrorists are acting here in America. On the day of this SIOA rally,
two men were taken off a plane at Newark. They were on their way to kill
Americans overseas.As long as Saudis are allowed to continue funding
Wahabi mosques in the U.S. and around the world, terrorist acts in the
target countries will continue to increase.

Mass immigration to the west of moslems
when combined with Saudi Wahabi control of mosques constitutes a hostile
colonization project which is war by other means. Until Islam is
reformed, becomes a religion of peace, and ceases its war against
humanity, free immigration of moslems and the building of mosques should
be curtailed. Doing otherwise is suicidal on a grand scale.
