The "ground zero" mosque in NYC

Reader comment on item: The Temple Mount's Indian counterpart

Submitted by Bob Jack (United States), May 30, 2010 at 07:59

An eerie and shocking development is unfolding in NYC near that location known as "Ground Zero" . Initial real estate acquisition and local authorization for the construction of a mammoth 13 story mosque only blocks from the site of the 9/11 tragedy have been accomplished. This sacred location where the Twin Towers once stood,marking the site of the greatest carnage ever inflicted by an enemy of America on its own soil, is being enshrined by Islam, the very religion which harbors the extremism and hate that led to the devastation that occurred on that day.

The $100 million Cordoba House, which contains a mosque, will be a shrine to Islam. It will also be both an insult to Americans and an Islamic celebration of the devastation caused by Muslim fanatics on September 11, 2001. What is even more shocking than the plan to erect the mosque near sacred ground is the indifference, and even support for the mosque, by local officials in NYC who have moved through the initial steps of the authorization process. The source of the funding for the mosque is also an outrage. The financing will likely come from many of the same sources who funded the Islamic radicals who commandeered the commercial airliners that caused the 9/11 devastation. What we are witnessing is a glimpse of the creeping Islamization that is underway which will ultimately undermine the very freedoms,values and institutions that are at the heart and soul of America. With the erection of this mosque comes another gradual erosion of American values and esteem, which by default and neglect brings this nation one step closer to its multicultural demise.
