Stop the Mosque at Ground Zero – Part II

Americans Stand Up Against Radical Islam in New York – We Will Not Submit!

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.

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 Trinity Streets. The second enclosure ran the length of the next block and can be seen on the other side of the traffic lights.

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.

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 sued the airlines and the Jane and John Does that saw something and said something on those airplanes, if you remember. That’s who’s on his human rights commission. It ain’t gonna happen with Bloomberg. We have to make it happen. You have to get involved.” (Pamela Geller) – UPDATE : 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 head.

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.

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 family.

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 Kathleen.

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?

“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.”

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 (1135-1204).

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 infidels.

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 roots.

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 Saudis.

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 solution.”

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. – Europe News

Joe Guckaran, from Pennsylvania, holds a Real Face of Islam flyer explaining the Koranic verse 9:111 “They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed…” and many other passages which exhort followers of Islam to wage unending violent jihad on all unbelievers worldwide.

Vinny Forras is a highly decorated firefighter from Westchester and was one of the first responders. On the third day of rescue and recovery operations he was buried alive with other firefighters by a collapse under the burning ruins. He was rescued after two hours and I think well represents his many brothers who perished on 9/11 and since.

“I grew up in Queens and I proudly served in the shadow of Ground Zero. I was one of the firefighters to answer the call and I was buried for nearly two hours beneath the rubble with my brothers. And I’m here to stand before you today and let you know that if I ever say or do anything that’s considered politically correct, it’s completely by accident.

We, the people, are still under attack, today. Planes rammed into 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.”

Happy and lucky to be alive. Vinny Forras (from left) with wife Monica, daughters Denise Valcarcel, Denise Giler, Alejandra Giler, and Orsi Dungi.

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 people? 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.

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.”

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.

Tom Dolan of Protest Warrior gives a congratulatory hug to Pamela Geller after the rally.

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 trouble.

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.

Stop the Mosque at Ground Zero Rally – Part I – by El Marco


The phenomenon of Saudi hate ideology is worldwide, but its occurrence in the United States has received scant attention. This report was undertaken after concerns were raised about Saudi state influence on American religious life.

  • Human Being

    I don’t even know what to say about this website. However, it is without a doubt clear to me that human beings will never, ever, learn from history. I am sometimes disgusted to be associated with this world. How can you sit there and be so ignorant. I’ve tried to ignore the hatred in this society, but it is clear that it’s so widespread. For the sake of the survival of humanity open up your minds and read a book. Do not generalize such a mass of people. What rights do you have, painting a picture of a community in such a inhumane way? I don’t get it. It’s so unfortunate that more than 3000 people died on 9/11. It is horrible that more than 6 million Jews were massacred in the Holocaust. It is terrible that civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, in Vietnam and all over the world have been killed because of war. It is terrible that soldiers are being killed. It is bewildering that you will not recognize all these people as a collective contributor to the human race. I’m not writing this to make you wake up. It just seems to me that you do not have a bird’s eye view of history. Look at the world. Make your judgments. But try to at least understand the human side of things. Do not blame billions of people because of insane people’s actions. Everyone is responsible for their own actions. Take religion out the politics and culture. And the craziest thing out of all this insanity, is that I am not surprised at all about the way people are acting now. All we are looking for is someone to blame. Who knew you could blame billions of people for a crime? Where is the logic and morality in that?

  • Wake Up

    We will all die one day, the truth will then wake you up, but by then it will be to late. Disgusted by this site.

  • Victoria Trabbic

    I believe it is so DISHONORABLE to the people that have lost loved ones in the 911 catastrophy to build a mosque so near the site. Please have them go to their home country and build their mosques there.

    So we let the muslims knock our buildings down so they can build for themselves?…i don’t get it?

  • P.S. The founder of the Ground Zero Mosque commented that Freedom of Speech is the cause of Islamic Extremism. This is a very interesting way of thinking and odd that writing the truth about Islam is resulting in some individuals in Europe being charged and sued with what really amounts to Blasphemy against “Allah”.
    (i.e. Oriana Fallaci “The Rage and the Pride and The Force of Reason”) The truth is that our cultures are clashing and Christian Judeo societies are trying to appease Muslims in the hopes of avoiding war. However, Islamic Terrorist attacks hit the 10,000 mark from the 9/11 event to 2007 and those attacks are escalating so there is no avoiding this situation and appeasement obviously encourages more attacks.

    Other writers and freedom fighters besides Oriana Fallaci are attempting to tell the truth about Islam. In addition, over 80% of Terrorist Acts being committed in America are by only 1% of our Population (Muslims) or Most Muslims Are Not Terrorists but Most Terrorists Are Muslim. One must conclude there’s an escalation of hostilities between Islamic adherents and the rest of the world so at what point do we Christians, Hindu, Buddhist, Jews and others consider these terrorist acts of genocide an act of war. And what ever happened to the Oklahoma and other states initiative to limit Sharia Law in America?

    In Seville , Spain , the City Council authorized the construction of a mosque on one of the empty pieces of land. The citizens did not want the mosque built in their vicinity and found a brilliant solution: they buried a pig in the land, and made the news public. Islamic law prohibits the construction of a mosque on lands desecrated by remains of pigs, therefore the Muslims had to renounce the construction on this desecrated land…

    I have heard IMAM saying that the Islam center will allow all different religions to pray. If it is so why it is named Islam Center? Why not Universal Relgious Center? Why Islam will have first two floors for Islam prayer? With their noise no one else can pray peacefully-since Islam prayer start with a loud noise to call God’ attention. They should have top floors.

    Some of these ideas came to me. I am not a religious person but I respect everyone with their beliefs. All have the right to believe what they consider is good for humanity and the society we live in.

    You can say all you want about the intolerance of Islam but mind you, Mecca has been hosting the largest gay parade for years on end. Did you never see the pictures of all those drag queens in their dresses?

    I know, that was pretty lame, but we need more humor to cope with all this serious business. I’m also waiting for a Muslim version of Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”. That’ll be the day.

  • Thanks for the report on the demonstration. I grew up among people for whom things didn’t happen unless they were reported in the New York Slimes and Washington Compost. As an adult, I served the US Department of State, during which time I reported on a simmering guerrilla situation in Sharki Turkistan (Chinese-occupied Eastern Turkistan, know to colonialists as Xinjiang), and, while digesting reporting out of Rwanda at the end of that country’s Civil War, watched further reports of a multi-state war in Central Africa. Neither of these was covered by our august MSM, which, at the time, was more interested in Madonna’s wardrobe.

    I salute all who are giving us more information on the many things in heaven and earth than aren’t covered by the self-appointed information gatekeepers.

  • Never forget. 9/11

    NO MOSQUE!!!
    America, enough is enough! Stand up against the insanity.
    It would be a slap in the face of every American and utterly disrespectful to all those who lost their lives if they allow this.
    It would be like telling the people that gave their lives to save others ‘you died for nothing’. How dare they even Think about building a mosque on or near ground zero! Their absolutely insane! NO NO NO NO! Go build on your own land!


    this whole thing is f***ing retarded. It’s not like they are building one: there already is one, and they intend to make it a bigger building. Even though this whole thing is stopped, guess what? The Islamic center is still there! Jeez, some people on this planet must be withdrawn from the gene pool.

  • Angry American

    I am posting this as a response to Khaled. We americans who do not support mosques are racists? Ground Zero is a War Memorial. It is as much a historical landmark as Gettysburg or Pearl Harbor. Bulding this mossque so close to Ground Zero is just like building a Japanese worship center in Pearl Harbor. Just as many people would be just as mad. According to Islamic traditions, mosques are used as monuments for great victories. To all the people who lost a loved one on 9/11, it is a constant reminder of the pain that this entire country felt. It is a reminder that the people who bombed our home, won. They remember their sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers suffering and pain. Sympathy and tolerance go both ways, if you care then build it somewhere else

    These Americans are very racists because they do not want to build an Islamic center. These Americans are fascists because they are against tolerance and religious freedom. All Muslims are shocked because of this racism. Muslims respect any American who supports the idea of building an Islamic center in any site in America.

    Building a mosque at Ground Zero would be like a monument of triumph of Islam over infidel America. Like pouring salt into the festering wounds of those who lost their near and dear ones on 9/11. One would be crazy to allow such an insult to happen. If America is so bad why do all these buggers wnat to emigrate to America? Why can’t they stay in their Islamic paradises and enjoy its endless delights?

  • Aren't I Christian

    Shut the hell up all of you hypocrites.
    Stop riding the pity train, the world is fed up of feeling sorry for your lazy asses, people die all over the world everyday.
    Get over it.

  • This issue is being debated even here in Jakarta, capital of the largest Muslim country in the world.
    We have an expat conservative blog, Ross’s Right Angle,
    and American leftists are bashing the anti-mosque protestors.
    Some of us however are sticking up for common sense.

  • George Weston

    it’s fun to find people who ignore the reality
    I swear it’s no ‘matter what. Sallah Mohammed wa salam allayhi
    is a true prophet. remember that the Americans stand for freedom.
    why you object to the construction of a mosquee.alors that every American citizen is free to believe wipe on any religion.
