As we ponder the outrageous decision  of Mayor Bloomberg and company, to approve a 13 story  Muslim Center (mosque)  at Ground Zero, we thought we should post some sobering pictures of the destruction at Ground Zero .

How can these pictures mean so little to Mayor Bloomberg and Community Board 1. The families of those murdered deserve a proper memorial, not a mosque called Cordoba House! Yet ignore these pictures  they  must as they so eagerly embrace a ‘peaceful’ dhimmitude.

So here’s something  WE can  and must do about this outrage….


Date:  June 6th
Time:  12 Noon
Place:  Ground Zero

Below is the first press announcement. The planned mosque at the hallowed Ground Zero site has clandestine funding sources. Its imam, Faisal Abdul Rauf is a radical Islamic wolf in sheep’s clothing, a seductive practitioner of taqiyya (dissimulation for the purpose of furthering the interest of the Faith) who blames America for the terrorist attacks on 911. Shortly after 9/11 he said in a CNN interview: “US policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.” Elsewhere he said: “The US and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end.” This monstrosity has to stop! The rally is already drawing 100’s from NY and out of state. If you or your organization wish to be included in the supporters/sponsors list, please let Pamela know at the number below, before it is sent to the media. Let’s Roll!

SIOA Rally Calls For Halt to Plans for Ground Zero Mosque

The human rights group Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) is hosting a rally at Ground Zero to protest the construction of a mosque at the site of the Islamic terror attack that brought down the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Victims of 9/11 – those who lost family or friends, or who were injured on that day – are especially invited to attend.

The SIOA No 9/11 Mosque Rally will be at Ground Zero on June 6 at 12 noon. Supporting groups (partial list): ACT for America, Manhattan; Z Street; Freedom Defense Initiative; Faith Freedom International, Stuart Kaufman, VAST, No Mosque at Ground Zero.

The rally was scheduled after the Community Board for New York City’s financial district unanimously approved the construction of a 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center right across from Ground Zero.

SIOA executive director Pamela Geller commented: “What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in eye of America.”

“We chose June 6 as the rally date,” Geller explained, “because it’s D-Day. In 1944, Americans acted against the evil of Nazism. Now it is time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.”

Speakers at the No 9/11 Mosque will include Nonie Darwish, ex-Muslim and author of Now They Call Me Infidel; Simon Deng, the Sudanese ex-slave and campaigner for human rights for Sudanese Christians; James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force; and Anders Gravers of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE). Hosting the event are Geller, the popular blogger and columnist who publishes the acclaimed blog, and SIOA associate director Robert Spencer, the bestselling author and director of Geller is the author (with Spencer) of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (Foreword by Ambassador John Bolton), coming July 27 from Simon & Schuster.

Rally speakers and participants will stand with those lost loved ones on 9/11, and call for an end to plans for this mosque that insults the memory of those who died on that day.

SIOA is one of America’s foremost organizations defending human rights, religious liberty, and the freedom of speech against Islamic supremacist intimidation and attempts to bring elements of Sharia to the United States.

June 6th … BE THERE! Stop the 911 Mosque!

From NMAGZ: According to the author of this post, the following article has been rejected by the NY Daily News and the NY Post; apparently they showed no interest in the credible research that demands a stop to this outrage. Madeline Brooks notes, “Any mosque built at that location after 9/11 would be an insult to us, and this one in particular is terrible because the Imam is a Trojan Horse of peaceful co-existence.”

Thank you to Madeline Brooks for this important perspective regarding the planned Ground Zero Mosque. It remains of great concern that our media is frightened in to silence!

The Ground Zero Mosque Must Be Stopped!

By Madeline Brooks

Planting a mosque just two blocks from where Muslims murdered Americans on 9/11 is a huge slap in the face. Why shouldn’t Muslims be sensitive enough to realize that a huge mosque planted right near the horrific wound to US created at Ground Zero by Muslims is outrageous to us?  They claim a right to be insulted by cartoons mocking their prophet, even to the point of beheading people.

The Imam of the Ground Zero Insult, Faisal Abdul Rauf, is not the nice guy he likes to hold himself out to be. At his Friday afternoon khutbah services and in his book, “What’s Right With Islam, Rauf states that he wants the mosque to be a place where inter-faith understanding is fostered.   His sonorous voice is smooth and almost hypnotic.  His writing style appears to be rational and unthreatening.Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, talks    about his proposal to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory    on Park Place, two blocks from Ground Zero, into a mosque.

However, this does not jibe with aspects of him that are downright hostile and frightening.

During a recent Friday sermon, this writer did due diligence as a mosque monitor and heard Rauf deny that Muslims perpetrated 9/11. In an interview with CNN shortly after 9/11, Rauf said, “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 only end when the West acknowledges the harm it has done to Muslims. And that it was Christians who started mass attacks on civilians.

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 “law fare” cases designed to intimidate non-Muslims from criticizing aggressive Muslim behavior, and to use our own legal and democratic processes to undermine and dominate America, forcing it to become Islamic.

Rauf calls himself a Sufi, evoking among non-Muslims a “peace and love image,” similar to hippies. 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, would explain the contradiction between Rauf’s image as reconciler of religions and his sympathies and associations with terrorists? This is known as “taquiyya” among Muslims.

A previous Rauf project, Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow, clearly shows on its website that it is headed and funded by individuals from Saudi Arabia, the country that spawned fifteen of the nineteen jihad jockeys who rode the 9/11 planes of destruction. The funding for Cordoba House is much murkier, so far.  All that has been publically disclosed is that the support comes from unidentified sources in Saudi Arabia and Muslim ruled Malaysia.  Rauf reportedly says he paid $4.85 million for the property — in cash. Where exactly did this money come from? Was it Wahhabist supporting Saudi sources, which have already funded many other mosques in New York City?

The mosque is called Cordoba House.  Muslims like to refer to Spain and especially the city of Cordoba as a place where Muslim rule reached a glorious peak.  Contrary to the myth of a Golden Age of equality during the Muslim occupation of Spain and in particular in Cordoba, Spain and Cordoba were places where Christians and Jews suffered as social inferiors under Islam oppression.  Equal civil rights never existed for non-Muslims under Sharia, or Islamic law.  Rauf even admits as much when he writes, “Jews and Christians living under Muslim rule simply had to pay a tax to finance their protection by their Muslim overlords.” This is not equality!  Americans do not demand a special tax to protect Muslims from ourselves.  That would be extortion, not ‘protection.’

Through another organization Rauf started called the Cordoba Initiative, he created the “Sharia Index.” This will measure how closely countries follow Sharia, or Islamic law.  While Sharia can cover such relatively innocuous aspects of Muslim life as religious weddings (hopefully not to twelve year old girls) it also demands that all Muslim life be governed by laws derived from the Koran, without the intervention of civic institutions, such as democracy.  And the Koran dictates that everyone, even non-Muslims, must ultimately live under Sharia. Do you understand how that is in direct conflict with our Constitution and other aspects of our secular society?

Rauf gets even trickier here.  He states in his book, “What’s Right With Islam,” that a society that follows natural law, such as America, is already practicing Sharia. However, he does not note that his peculiar definition of Sharia acceptance is shared by just about no other Imam.  So what prevents him from adjusting his singular idea of Sharia back to the norm of forced conversions, murdering non-Muslims and apostates who leave Islam, amputations of thieves’ hands, stoning of adulterous women, execution of homosexuals, etc.?  Throughout his writing, Rauf floats an image of a harmonious, pleasant Islam – nice to everybody.  But this is totally disconnected from Islam’s actual history of bloody conquest, enslavement, and humiliation of other people – which he never acknowledges.

Still another unsettling part of Rauf’s problem mosque is why the city has given the building a pass. Records for the Department of Buildings have shown numerous complaints for illegal construction and no access, yet the issues were listed as ‘resolved.’

Community Board One’s financial district committee needs to reconsider its endorsement of this mosque. The prestigious American groups that are reportedly also financing the mosque, The Ford Foundation and The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, need to think again about what they are getting into.  The Department of Buildings needs to reassess its action.  The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, which supports the project (Why?  What has a religious building got to do with Immigration?) needs to re-evaluate its approval.

Mayor Bloomberg himself needs to withdraw his support for this mosque, especially in light of the recent Times Square car bomb attempt.  If not, he will be helping to provide a handy meeting place for future terrorists, those who understand Imam Rauf’s real message: Speak sweetly, appear to be a well adjusted member of American society, and plan the destruction of America, either with bombs or ‘peaceful’ undermining.

As revealed previously here  at NMAGZ , we agree, this Ground Zero Mosque remains a bad idea and  Mayor Bloomberg sanctions this insult. Mayor Michael Rubens Bloomberg buys his way into a third term, changing the laws to suit is ego-needs, and then sells our beloved New York  City to the enemy, to the Cordoba  Initiative’s CORDOBA HOUSE!!

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, talks  about his proposal to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory  on Park Place, two blocks from Ground Zero, into a mosque.


NMGZ: It’s been a while since there’s been anything to report on the “Ground Zero” Mosque. We, of course, knew the silence did not  mean the proposed mosque had been forgotten; not a chance. Their intention was to sneak it through, and so they did. “There’s nothing like it,” said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, adding that facilities will be open to all New Yorkers.” Ya think? This ” D’wah Center”  will cast a rude shadow over Ground Zero.  SHAME on you, Mayor Bloomberg!

And take note, they call it: Cordoba House… “Córdoba is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain….  in the Middle Ages it was a capital of an Islamic caliphate “.


Plan for mosque near World Trade Center site moves ahead

A proposal to build a mosque steps from Ground Zero received the support of a downtown committee despite some loved ones of 9/11 victims finding it offensive.

The 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center was unanimously endorsed by the 12-member Community Board 1’s financial district committee.

The $100 million project, called the Cordoba House, is proposed for the old Burlington Coat Factory building at Park Place and Broadway, just two blocks from the World Trade Center site.

“I think it will be a wonderful asset to the community,” said committee Chairman Ro Sheffe.

Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims.

He said the glass-and-steel building would include a 500-seat performing arts venue, a swimming pool and a basketball court. “There’s nothing like it,” said Rauf, adding that facilities will be open to all New Yorkers.

Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and a member of the Cordoba Initiative’s board, said donations are being sought to pay for the construction.

Khan said the project has received little opposition.

“Whatever concerns anybody has, we have to make sure to educate them that we are an asset to the community,” Khan said.

Khan said her group hopes construction on the project will begin by the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Once built, 1,000 to 2,000 Muslims are expected to pray at the mosque every Friday, she said.

No one at last night’s meeting protested the project. But some 9/11 families said they found the proposal offensive because the terrorists who launched the attacks were Muslim.

“I realize it’s not all of them, but I don’t want to have to go down to a memorial where my son died on 9/11 and look at a mosque,” said retired FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Riches – whose son Jim, a firefighter, was killed on 9/11.

“If you ask me, it’s a religion of hate,” said Riches, who did not attend last night’s meeting.

Rosemary Cain of Massapequa, L.I., whose son, Firefighter George Cain, 35, was killed in the 2001 attacks, called the project a “slap in the face.”

“I think it’s despicable. That’s sacred ground,” said Cain, who also did not attend the meeting.

“How could anybody give them permission to build a mosque there? It tarnishes the area.”
