The NY Daily News has exposed more of the dirty deeds and cover-ups that surround the Ground Zero Mosque.
“Mayor Bloomberg’s top deputies went to great lengths to help the developers of a planned mosque near Ground Zero – even drafting a letter to the community board for them.
A flurry of emails released by City Hall yesterday revealed the coaching Hizzoner’s brass gave to the imam pushing to build the mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf.”
One of these deputies is Fatima Shama who was first mentioned by this blogger when she represented Mayor Bloomberg at at a screening for “Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Think” in November of 2009.
Her bio reads: Fatima Shama as Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, Commissioner Shama currently serves as Senior Education Policy Advisor in the Mayor’s Office, where she previously served as the Health Literacy and Language Access Coordinator.
No film was taken of the speakers that evening, there is, however, a written report here.
We also noted later that one of the organizations that had promoted the screening that evening was Intersections,which just happened to have employed the drunken cameraman, Michael Enright, who made a pathetic attempt at slashing a muslim taxi driver in August of 2010. Of course, once the media was aware of his association with Intersections, the stuperous cameraman and his very unclear motives …..other than being blind drunk, conveniently disappeared from the media; no longer a useful anti-American tool.
We next saw Fatima Shama at the Annual Muslim Day Parade 2010, representing Mayor Bloomberg.
As the Mayor’s representative she spoke at the parade :
Seems Bloomberg doesn’t bother to show up at these events, just Fatima Shama, so we are not surprised that there has been coaching via emails or favoritism of any sort when it came to the Community Board and the Land Commissions SUPPORT of the Ground Zero Mosque.
More from the NY Daily News:
“Another email shows that Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Fatima Shama expedited a temporary public assembly permit for the group to conduct prayers in January at the site, known as 51 Park.
City Hall says it is the job of the community and immigrant affairs commissioners to assist community groups, including drafting letters for them. Officials noted Bloomberg has always been in favor of building the mosque near Ground Zero.”
And , of course, we mustn’t forget that since 2009 the NYC Police Department has had its very own Muslim Chaplain
As Khalid pointed out….a steady plan to ‘educate’….(sort of like creeping sharia)…..And back in 2002, you can even catch a familiar name here (that’s right…. Adil Almontaser) as plans to form the NYC Muslim Police Officers Association (AMLEOA) were announced in 2002 and who have stated more recently in 2010:
AMLEOA and its Members Fully Support the establishment of a Muslim Community Center near Ground Zero.
Muslims were not only victims of the terrorist attacks
but were also first responders!!!!!
Let’s Never forget that!!!!!!!!

“The New York City Council has canceled the “ban Wal-Mart hearing” that had been scheduled for tomorrow at 1pm. They caved. They were afraid the public and the nation would be made aware of their hypocrisy: no to Wal-Mart but yes to the Islamic supremacist mosque. The limousine liberals deign to deny the working class and the poor jobs and prices they can afford.
The council canceled tomorrow’s hearing at the last minute, in the dark of night, and will reschedule it when no one will come and there is no notice. But we will be there.
Christine Quinn, the shameless shill for the Ground Zero mosque, told the New York Times:
The New York City Council was supposed to hold a hearing this Tuesday about a renewed campaign by Wal-Mart to open its stores in the city.
“We needed a bigger room,” the Council speaker, Christine C. Quinn, said. “We heard from unions all across the city, small business leaders from across the city. It’s a growing list of people.”
Liar. They need a bigger room because we would overwhelm them. They need a bigger room because they are afraid of us.
They canceled because we were coming to call them out on their hypocrisy. We will reschedule the protest when they reschedule the hearing.
Let the NYC Council be on notice: we will be there wherever and whenever.
WATCH FOR A RESCHEDULED PROTEST IN JANUARY 2011!!
PLEASE NOTE: THE TIME FOR THE RALLY IS at 1 :00 PM on the 14th. It’s on the flyer….next to the date….
The New York City Council has declared Tuesday, December 14 to be “Hate Wal-Mart Day,” and will hold a hearing against Wal-Mart entitled “When Wal-Mart Comes to Town.“
AFDI/SIOA will be there to point out the City’s astounding inconsistency and hypocrisy in working to ban Wal-Mart from New York while doing everything it can to facilitate the construction of an Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero.
This is not about Wal-Mart. It is about consistency from City officials, and about justice for the 70% of Americans who oppose the Ground Zero mosque.
Pamela Geller, executive director of AFDI/SIOA, and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch will be there. Please join us and send this to your email lists, groups, list-servs, and tea party people.
AFDI/SIOA is calling on all freedom lovers, free market lovers, infidels, proud Americans, and people of conscience to stand for American values and against Islamic supremacism.
UPDATE: December 12, 2010: ADDED MORE PICTURES TO THE FLICKR SLIDE SHOW (please scroll down)
At 2 PM on Sunday, December 5, 2010, the congregation of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church gathered at Ground Zero.
This was a Vesper Service for the Feast of St. Nicholas and, nine years after the Twin Towers collapsed onto this tiny 80 years old church, it’s a mystery WHY it remains un-built.
They still have no church to worship in as they did for 80 years.
As we arrived and were being permitted to enter the Ground Zero construction area, the media was being told NO Cameras. No filming was going to be allowed for ‘security’ reasons! Some of the press was packing up their tripods and cameras. Wonder if some of the left? I was very surprised (as was everyone) at these restrictions. About 15 minutes later, little by little, the word began to spread that only SOME people could film (the diocese) but that too was still ridiculous since this was an event to which the media was invited. Another 10 minutes or so and everyone started filming, so I figured that meant me, too. But, never was there a formal “Go” just a sort of whispered…I guess we can film now….
The children of St. Nicholas carried precious artifacts that were damaged yet miraculously survived on that horrific day:A splintered wooden icon, a tattered altar cloth, a crushed silver bowl, a twisted candelabra, a VERY bent brass bell, mangled candles and a liturgical book.
There was a large turnout by the congregation and media. However, it wasn’t clear who the other reporters were other than The Daily News who identified herself and you’ll see City Comptroller, John Liu in the crowd. Since he’s been a very vocal supporter of The Ground Zero Mosque and supports the use of city loans and grants for said mosque, what about St. Nicholas? Will he go on record in giving the same support to the rebuilding of the church? Will he support it financially, too?
Regarding it location, I was told the church (whenever it is permitted to rebuild) will not be at its original location, but just east of that lot. Which can be see a few times in the back ground of the video.
I’m sorry there’s distracting motion during the Archbishop’s homily. Without the tripod I was getting tired and fighting the sun. It’s only a few times. His homily is worth listening to for what he said in front of City Comptroller, JohnLiu, describing the Church of St. Nicholas in “Ground Zero Mosque Community Center terms”. It’s outrageous that we haven’t heard enough, barely anything really, from the Mayor and his minions regarding the Church of St. Nicholas. But, since The city is falling all over itself to build a mosque in a clothing store and stonewalls a church that was in that location for 80 years, it seems more than a bit sad that they feel they must also be a ‘community center’.
Support for St. Nicholas. Simon Deng was there (of course)
This should be a huge a story but the media coverage was low-key to nothing. Its up to us to make St. Nicholas a priority.
