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.

  • Neil Groves

    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?

  • Mucius

    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…

  • Balraj Aggarwal

    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.


  • houteklomp

    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.

  • swamykool

    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.

  • We have to stop being worried about being tolerent and politically correct and start being AMERICAN. It is absolutely appauling that the speaker of the house,nancy polosi, is calling for an investigation into the funding of the opposition to the mosque and not the investigation into the fund of the mosque. It’s a slap in the face to every AMERICAN, Our Country and our Troops that have given thier FULL MEASURE to allow this travesty to be continued.

  • Arnaldo Prieto

    A mosque at Ground Zero ? Are you kidding me ? That is a bad, bad idea.

  • Build the mosque somewhere else; Though most of these comments have pure islamphobia stuck into it, This is what possibly your enemy wants you americans to do…Get angry over the mosque, If one day we have islamic radicals invade america, Just wait…We will one day fight and claim our country back, even if we have to take our war at home.

    • admin

      Zahir ; What you call “pure Islamphobia” (employing an absurd leftist term) is defiance. This mosque is opening the eyes of a lot of people to islam’s true imperialist nature. America is waking up and what you see here in these comments is pure defiance and it will grow and leave only leftists standing with islamists. The fight is just beginning and the lines are being drawn. Moderate moslems are very much in the background and subject to marginalization by liberals and bullying by wahabists who control 80% of mosques in America. Abdel Feisel Rauf is a radical islamist playing a moderate and all the left is falling for it.

      To understand what moderate moslems are like read this article from Canada. – Mischief in Manhattan –

      We Muslims know the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation

    I think it’s more important to fight against the possibility of a McDonald’s at Ground Zero – if you’re worried about someone who is currently killing Americans.

  • kumar

    please stop build the mosque at ground zero.please think,in pakistan,indonesia,saudi arabia and other muslim countries have not given freedom to hindus ,buddist and christian to worshipand many womens are raped by muslim men.all muslim terrerist and muslim countries are support to build the mosque.most christian live america but thay are respect other religens.please ask muslim countries to give freedom to other religion

  • George Comptas

    Mohamed is a false prophet. Any person who teaches and preaches people to kill is not of God. God is not the tempter who is telling these evil Islamists to kill. The tempter is the devil himself. God’s law is Thou shalt not kill. Yet these devils continue to do so.

  • Copts Rights

    Stop the mosque at the ground zero site and the insulting threat of evil Islamization against our beloved America. Stop the mosque which is a vile affront designed to tell the Muslims that Islam has succeeded victorious in killing the unbelievers (infidles) and has the upper hand above non-Moslems. We don’t want Islam mafia and Islam mafia to invade and occupy the Western World. Islam Has invaded our Coptic nation of Egypt and occupied it for 1400 years. Egypt and the whole Middle East, Iran, Spain, Anatolia, etc. Spain succeeded in liberating southern of Spain from Islam after 800 years of barbaric savagery. Copts of Egypt, Assyrians, Spaniards, Anatolians, Africans, Persians, Armenians, Slovaks, etc. have been suffered from Islam. Copts, the natives of Egypt have been persecuted. Muslim Arabs destroyed the Egyptian civilization. We don’t want Islam to destroy our Western civilization as they did with Copts.

    Copts are considered 3dr degree citizens in Egypt after Muslim women. Muslims burned down the historical library of Alexandria and cut off the tongues of our forefather if they spoke the Coptic language to wipe out our Coptic identity. Muslims imposed on our forefathers waging the war and paying the “penalty tribute” on Copts up to 90%v of their income so that Copts will give up and join the camp of Islam (club of mafia).

    Ban Koran and outlaw Islam mafia and mafia Islam to protect our Western civilization from barbarism. No more mosques to be built, but rather build a Synagogue for Jews and a Cathedral for Christians in Mecca. Deport Muslims who don’t confirm and respect our Judeo-Christian ethics. No more influx of Muslims. Muslims have 4 wives taking “welfare” and insulting unbelievers in the USA. ……… Burn Down Koran on 9/11, the burning Koran day- Ban Koran and Outlaw Islam Mafa and Mafia of Islam. Be firm, committed to stop Islam scourges and cancerous epidemic to save Western Civilization and Humanity.

    I can not believe what our country has come to; that we allow a Mosque to be built where the same people who belong to this Mosque killed over 3,000. people, it is shameful and I hope New Yorker’s vote out every politician that is going against the wishes of the people of New York, and allowing this hedious supposed place of worship, to be built in their state.

  • Pamela Geller is so amazing. We are living in such an insane world. Our government is so corrupt and in bed with all the wrong causes. When will this mess be over and sanity resumes?

  • Victoria Heindel

    Stop this insanity! This is American soil and it was founded on Christian principles, so why should we even consider the building of any Mosque on this sacred site? This is America, home of the FREE and land of the BRAVE! Let the remains of the people who perished here rest in peace. Let there families have a place to come and remember their loved ones. A place that is free of anything to do with the Islamic ideas.

  • sean

    It’s because new york is the most Liberal, leftist city in america. let em try that shit here in kentucky. i’ve been to every state in the US, but i choose to live here, with the hillbillies and rednecks… the country derides us as stupid, inbred. but you wait and see where freedom and the American spirit reside when your elected liberals have happily handed your cities over to the enemies of freedom. we Americans will be right here, and we aren’t going to allow you to deficate on our country.

  • Mayor Bloomberg How could you dishonor the dead at ground zero by allowing this Mosque to be built. May those who died as a result of this act of terrorism on 9/11 haunt your dreams till you come to your senses.

  • Obiwan

    9/11 happened almost 10 years ago, and you people haven’t figured out that it was NOT Islamic jihadist!!!!!

    There have been scores of documentaries proving this…

  • Artemia

    Americans we have to stop the building of the mosque, do not let them overpower us and take over the liberties and faith our blessed land.
    In Saudi Arabia it is literally FORBIDDEN to build a church as well as in other Muslim countires, so what do you say to that!
    They call us the “infidels” and “weak” westerners!

  • We have no place for such outside manipulation = STOP THE MOSQUE!!!!!

  • Caroll Roten

    “People of New York,” We are with you and we pray that you will be able to stop the mosque from being built..




    What a victory it would be if we put a stop to this! It would unite Americans everywhere and bring pride to our nation once again. It would be a statement to Muslims and terrorists everywhere.

    I WILL email links to this site to everyone in my address book urging them to visit this site and dwell upon the message it brings.
    I wish I had a web site to post the links on but I don’t.

    Our nation is in great peril from within and without.

    Now is the time for resistance. Now is the time for action.

  • Bob Wood

    Mr.Bloomberg when asked about his plans, if any, of running for the Whitehouse stated that he was “unelectable” due to his political views. It is quite apparent he is accurate in his evaluation of his chances. I have no idea why he was elected mayor in the first place. Maybe its because folks tend to vote the party ticket rather than the person. …..but I guess we in California have elected our share of screwballs so I have no room to talk.

    We Americans, for some reason or other, have very short memories and the passage of time seems to dull our outrage. I still get upset about Pearl Harbor, Malmedy, The USS Liberty and N. Korea. We went to Afghanistan to get the people responsible for 9/11. The Taliban still refuse to hand them over. We should continue our endeavors there until we get what we went there for! I will never forget what happened in NYC on 9/11 ….the terror and suffering and the heroism of the people of NYC.

    We don’t need the mosque there….not because of religious reasons…but for political reasons, for Islam is as political as the Democrats, Republicans, and like the Communists and Nazis they are bent on world conquest. I believe that the Mosque would symbolise a success of Islam over the west to the rest of the “true believers” worlwide.

    I will be tolerant of Islam when it repudiates it dogma of hate and takes an active part in curtailing the activities of their “radical” elements…until then I will be suspiciuos of and hostile to it.

    Would it be too much to expect EVERY trades person…plumbing, electrical, everything and anything contributing to the construction of the mosque.. to NOT do the building on this project? Like, they gave a war but nobody came? I don’t know how to get the message across to the politicos, e.g., Bloomberg, (of ALL people!) and the other 28 assenting politicians, that, next to electing W a SECOND time, this is the most egregious suspension of justice, reason, judgment, and intelligence in the annals of recent American history. Anybody got a clue how to do this? What little integrity we had left as Americans just went down the toilet. Our government’s so-called “governance,” is a joke; who can take it seriously? Mr. Obama. Mr. Bloomberg. You “top dogs” in the leather armchairs…are you listening?

  • rick

    Grant……..America has had its own cultural, political, and religious conflicts in the past, but this is not a conflict like anyother we have had. this is a blatent attack on our soil and a slap in the face with this blasphemous mosque they want to build. Islam is violence, terror, and hatred. Muslims live amongst us. We will be fighting a war against extremists that hate us and want to take over in the name of their god. This is more serious than you realize, so dont be naive about the enemy and grow a set so you too can stand up for the freedoms and beliefs that millions throughout our American history had paid so dearly and is now in danger of dissappearing into another Islamic republic ! with the help of some assholes in office !

  • grant

    Agree, wrong place to build… love comments pointing fingers at obama, sorta silly. On another note, when people want “their America” back what does this mean? Not trying to ruffle feathers, I am honestly curious. Was there ever a point America was without conflict?

Obama is doing everything in his power to change America and kill the very thing that makes America better than the rest of the world. Even to consider building a Mosque at Grond Zero is despicable. How dare they. America! Wake up and stand together for freedom.

  • Afifi Durr

    Stop building a mosque in ground zero. We don’t need more moslem terrorists to ruin our country. Please stop

  • doug

    There are so many other places to build a Mosque. Why here? What are you trying to say? Islamic fanatics tore down the towers and killed innocent civilians and now we want to build a mosque as a monument to who. To the killers. But in all reality the New Yorkers deserve what they get. voting for one liberal mental defective after another that hails political correctness over the concern and safety of its own citizens.

    Once again seeing those family members still suffering brought tears to my eyes. My heart goes out to you.

As I unable to afford a plane ticket to attend any rally, I am willing to do anything I can from here. Please let me know how I can help. Thanks, and GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Allowing this Mosque to be built would be an insult. I remember the on 9/11 Islamist’s dancing in the street. I never hear anything from the so called main stream Muslums renoucing this behavior. Why? because that’s what they believe, and they live in America,waiting to take over and we are letting them,little by little using our way of life against us.

  • I watch the news, mostly the Fox channel and never saw anything about this rally. The building of this mosque must be stopped! Anybody see Obama involved in this???? We have to take this great nation back!!!

    Im sorry but Islam == TERRORISM

    FACT and STATISTICS dont LIE..
    So lets look at them shall we?
    I aks muslims actually use thier brains..

    Since 9/11 over
    15,000 officially reported Terror attacks
    50,000 + wounded
    15,000 + killed
    99.987 % of all of these attacks were committed by muslims
    100.00 % of all airliner rammed into skyscrapers committed by muslims
    100.00 % of genital mutilation committed by muslims
    100.00 % of mohammeds victims were NON muslims

    The Koran is absolutly filled with
    violent passages DEMANDING the wholesale slaughter of
    Jews, Christians and NON muslims..

    Mohammed was a stark raving mad child molesting, mass murdering
    genocidal demon possessed CRIMINAL

    Islam is from the pitts of hell period
    Now do i want or does any SANE person want
    this Religion of Pieces to build another
    conquering mosque in our land..

  • peppercorns

    I am a New Yorker who has moved to NC after 9/11. I will never forget that dark day. I think that this is no place for a mosque. It is truly a slap in the face to all those who suffered that day. The Islamic community is trying to make a point but this is not the place. No one else is trying to build a Catholic, Baptist, Greek Orthodox, or Pentacostal Church on the site. We are not trying to build a memorial to Budda or any other religious figure there, so they should not be allowed to either. Especially since the crime was committed in the name of their God! No! No! no!
    We all know not all Muslims support the Jihad, but we can not allow this blatent mockery in our faces.

  • James Matera

  • Tabitha Korol

    We should NEVER allow Islam’s mosque to be built on the ashes of 3,000 of our people when they destroyed our World Trade Center. to Islam, the Towers were an economic symbol, and Islam uses symbolism, so they intend to name this mosque the Cordova Mosque. Cordova Spain was the seat of the Golden Era, when they ruled over Jews and Christians. This is what they want in NYC for all America – they want a caliphate. Islam is a replacement theocracy to replace others’ with theirs. BUT as long as churches and synagogues are not permitted in Mecca and Medina, as long as they’ve proven that they have no respect for life (including the way they treat their women, homosexuals, children, etc., ), as long as they continue public torture and death, stonings, honor killings, pedophilia, genital mutilation, they should not be on Ground Zero. Furthermore, we should never allow them to establish Shari’a law here; we must have laws forbidding compliance to Shari’a. They already inhibit speech in the media, anything against Islam; they seek to change history books; they’ve taught the FBI how to deal with and be sensitive to the needs of Muslims!
    Islam is a war of ideology; it should not be imposed on Americans and destroy our democracy. No mosque!

  • BensonBear

    I’m all for the “mosque at ground zero”. Anything else is intolerant bigotry.

    • Teresa



    • Arx Axiom

      Actually, the 9-11 attack was intolerant bigotry at its worst, and a heinous hate crime on a scale that boggles the mind. And all mosques that teach the Koran promote more intolerant bigotry…and hate crimes against innocent Americans, just for being Americans. There is a place for intolerance; would you tolerate arsenic in your morning tea? No more should Islam be tolerated. Bigotry is best defined as “being down on something you are not up on”; evidently you are either not up on the bigoted, intolerant, hate-filled teachings of the Koran, or you are down on them…and not up on the goodness of so many of the people killed by Islamists throughout history…and the beatings, beheadings, bombings, ad nauseam, go on and will escalate as Muslims gain more and more space and influence in America and everywhere else they go.

      Take your fake “anti-intolerance/bigotry” yack and get some of the real sentiment…and go support building cathedrals and temples in Mecca. Then at least you may acquire sufficient integrity to be taken seriously.


  • Good to read this. An impressive group of people stood up against this utter madness. At the same time I am amazed that you were only in the thousands instead of tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands.

    • admin

      FRANS; The reason there were not hundreds of thousands was because of a complete boycott by the dominant liberal media beforehand. If this was an “anti-war” rally in the Bush era the same media would be announcing it along with the weather and traffic for a week in advance. That’s how the left operates and that is why I travelled from Colorado to record the event in photographs. That’s why we all love the blogosphere. It frees us from the Orwellian mind-grip and history scrubbing of the MSM.

    Firstly the insensitivity of the Muslims is incredible. That on the part of the radicals is expected now, but that there is no general upwelling against them by ALL Muslims, worldwide, is astounding. Next, did Mayor Bloomberg check to see if he were circumcised? Next did he have a bar mitzvah”? In other words doesn;t he realize that he is Jewish?

    Bloomberg MUST stop this arrogant process before it goes any further. If he doesn’t, then whatever it takes MUST be done. The Muslims have gone way too far, but those in North America who are so leftist are equally culpable for they not only allow this sort of thing they encourage it. Well HELL! It stops now and if anyone wants to accuse me of bigotry so be it. Those who brought down the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001, were old-blooded murderers and those who want to build this despicable mosque are less than human. They dishonor the nearly 3000 who were killed, and their families and friends. STOP THIS BLOOMBERG!

    Thank you for this excellent and informative page. You are taking up the work that the mainstream media declines to perform. No wonder newspapers are dying.

    There is no longer such a thing as moderate Islam. Just radical Islamists practicing taqiyya.

    It is the disgrace of the New York Slimes, Washington Compost, and PeeCeeEnnEnn that this event was not covered or underreported. Indeed, I am most sympathetic with the demonstrators who said, “If you’re so sensitive, build it somewhere else”.

    I am ashamed to say that by profession, I am a swindler–that is, I teach a social studies curriculum in a public High School. I have reviewed a book _World History_, published by American Guidance System, which presents early Islam as “tolerant”. This myth is being given the lie every day in this era; and was given the lie many, many times in history, as the Copt, Assyrian, Mizrahi, Hindu, Sikh, and other demonstrators at your rally can testify.

    My fellow Americans, throw out those corrupt politicians who would sully the memory of the 9/11 victims! Protest, protest, and protest the corrupt planning boards who would approve such an obscenity as a Ground Zero Mosque! And, above all, wave the “Apes and Pigs” verse of the Qu’ran to bring lawsuit after lawsuit after lawsuit against people like Imam Rauf.

    No one should let them to build mosque. How dare! Having lots of mosque around the world is not enough for them???? If they want mosques they should go to Pakistan.

    Re: The image with the subtitle: “Port Authority Police and FDNY firefighters are seen here gathered beneath this banner.”

    One cannot help but wonder how many individuals currently employed by or for the Port Authority of NY & NJ are aware of Monday morning’s FoxNews Video Report,Could Middle East Own New WTC? . Fox correspondent reveals the NYC Port Authority is seeking a financial partner for rebuilding AND future CONTROL of the WTC ‘freedom tower’. Arab investors, specifically from Islamic countries which indoctrinated, financed and enabled the 9/11 terrorists are currently bidding for this blood soaked treasure. Does this bring the triumphalist Cordoba Initiative into clearer perspective for those with residual doubt? Does the poetry “mosques are our barracks” resonate for Americans yet?

    For those experiencing difficulty viewing the video, here is an Unofficial transcript of Johnson’s report for Fox & Friends:

    Steve Doocey:

    Welcome back. The twin towers of the World Trade Center stood as a stunning example of American exceptionalism and national pride. The government owner of the Trade Center site is now considering whether to accept a partnership bid to operate AND OWN the iconic “ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER” from an American company ‘with rich and powerful ARAB investors.” Fox News legal analyst, Peter J. Johnson Jr. is here to reveal and analyse this startling development. Peter . . .

    Peter Johnson Jr.:

    Good morning, Steve. Thank you. You know, the American people like to have a say in their national landmarks. Witness the outrage here in New York City, over the Empire State building snub of the late Mother Teresa, whose owners once saluted communist China’s anniversary in blazing lights.

    The World Trade Center yesterday and tomorrow is a touchstone of our past pain and our future pride. All Americans are invested in how a new American icon rises from the ashes where 2,752 lives were stolen.

    But, as we approach the ninth anniversary of September 11th, the World Trade Center has been delayed by wrenching political disagreements, legal roadblocks and cost overruns. In fact, witness the controversy over building a mosque on the site of the infamous sneak attack by al-qaeda terrorists.

    The government owner of the site, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, facing a depressed real estate market is now seeking a private partner to partially own and fully operate One World Trade Center.

    One of the final bidders in that confidential if not secret bidding process is a company called “The Related Companies” which may be the most prominently held real estate company in the United States.

    But, just as important “The Related Companies” also happens to be a company which is substantially bankrolled by the most powerful Arab corporate interests int he world. These Arab companies have either invested or loaned what may be billions of dollars to the company and it’s international projects.

    These partners include the Mubadala Development Company (http://www.mubadala.ae/) wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi government of the United Arab Emirates, the UAE and shared by the crowned Prince of Abu Dhabi and also a company called the Olayan Group which is a group apparently owned by the Saudi Arabian Royal family.

    Each of these companies are also rich sources of co-investment capital Olayan related – in it’s own words – taking advantage of any opportunity regardless of size or scale. The ties between The Related and the Arab finance community that Related has formed a joint venture based in Abu Dhabi with one of the largest Arab equity and asset managers – and that’s called “Gulf Related”.

    What do we know about the UAE and Saudi Arabia? The UAE and Saudi Arabia each recognized Taliban control of Afghanistan before the 9/11 attacks. We also know that 9/11 al-qaeda terrorists trained in Afghanistan and we know that 15 of the September 11th terrorists came from Saudi Arabia and two from the UAE. Eleven of the hijackers travelled through Dubai to the US and half of the money paid to the hijackers was funnelled through Dubai banks. Investigation has uncovered a mountain of allegations with regard to pre-9/11 Saudi financial support of al-qaeda.

    They are now aligned as an American partner in the war on terrorism. This month the Port Authority will select it’s partner on the seventeen hundred and seventy six foot tower, originally dubbed the “Freedom Tower”. The once and future World Trade Center.

    The future ownership of this Public Trust is in the hands of political appointees of the Governers of New Jersey and New York.

    For anyone who suffered a loss, this news may be dizzying.

    We know that ours is a forgiving nation. And we know that we have a well deserved place in the global economy. So, the question becomes this morning, in considering who should own and operate this hallowed ground. . .
    Are our wounds too raw ?
    Is our pride too deep?
    And is our principal too strong to even consider what may yet become the cruelest irony yet – of one of the most infamous days in our national history?

    We welcome, as Americans, Arab partnership. But, we ask this morning –

    Excellent report, El Marco, on a major citizens’ rally against the encroaching subversive Islamist influence in America at every level. I’m very heartened
    to see that savvy Americans are protesting this new beachhead against our nation and its founding principles and values. However, until the fact of
    Saudi and Emirate influence–through ownership of America’s national debt, American businesses (including mass media and finance), and American ex-federal officials (through high bribery to become “lobbyists”)–is widely exposed and counteracted, these kinds of insults and travesties may be expected to continue. Neosocialist globalists, like Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and Mayor Bloomberg, who all masquerade as loyal American politicians while countenancing sedition-enabling activity in the name of “tolerance,” need to be called out publicly for what they are. Our collective failure to do so will result in the loss of American independence, sovereignty, and Liberty within the coming decade.

      I agree William. 10 years is a long time and this has to be turned around. Here are comments by Rudy Gulliani from June 10th.

      “It not only is exactly the wrong place, at Ground Zero, but it is a mosque supported by an imam who has a record of support for causes that were sympathetic with terrorism,” he today told Jeff Katzon his morning drive-time radio show on WXKS. “Come on, we’re going to allow that at Ground Zero?”

      “It sends a particularly bad message, particularly if you knew the background of the imam supporting this,” he said on the Katz show. “This is an imam who has supported radical causes, who has not been forthright in condemning Islamic terrorists, and the worst instincts that brings about.”

      He continued, “Nobody would allow something like that at Pearl Harbor. Let’s have some respect for who died there and why they died there. They died because of Islamic extremist terrorists,” he said.

      “They are our enemy. We can say that. The world will not end if we say that.”

      But he noted that criticism of opposition to the mosque fits into the general kid-gloves handling that the Obama administration has adopted toward Islamic terrorists.

      “Every signal that the president is sending, in my opinion, is absolutely the wrong signal,” he said. “He’s sending a signal of weakness and desire to negotiate rather than of strength and a willingness to use all the power of this country to protect us and to crush Islamic terrorism,” he said.

      He marveled at the president’s avoidance of the term “Islamic terrorism.”

      “I have a hard time,” Giuliani said. “I have sort of a basic rule about how you deal with this. The only way to defeat them is to face them. When you can’t even utter their name, you create the impression, particularly [for] an enemy that’s as psychologically affected as this one, that we are weak and can be pushed.”

      Thanks for commenting …. El Marco

    We already knew/know that the Muslims terrorists want to destroy us. That is a fact.
    However, What is greatly disturbing to me — WHO SOLD THEM THE BUILDING! These are the anti-Americans who are far more evil than those attempting to destroy us. They are Traitors to all Americans and and All Countries that have lost loved ones to these evil people.

  • AndyM

    Unbelievable if NYC allows this. It is, without question, a blatant, insulting move by the Islamists to further expand their twisted version of religion in the US and eventually convert us to a caliphate with sharia law. They have very deep pockets, as they are backed by oil money, but if the American people stand up to it, they can be stopped.

  • Excellent coverage Marco!
    It was great to see you again!
    Keep up the good work!

    RE: Gold Star Dad Len Wahl – When I saw that Len Wahl was so moved by the words of Simon Deng, I introduced them and asked to photograph them together. When Simon Deng learned that Mr. Wahl lost his son in combat in Iraq they bonded in their shared grief. I saw that both felt heartsick for all the world of suffering brought by Islam. Simon Deng’s people have been killed by the millions in recent decades, and he reacted with true sorrow learning that Len Wahl lost his son fighting Islamo-facsist forces.

    Len Wahl passed away recently of a heart attack and a broken heart. RIP Len Wahl.
