The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mosque
A new documentary from Christian Action Network
(producers of “HOMEGROWN JIHAD” and “ISLAM RISING “.)
“If this mosque is built, it will be like 9-11 all over again for the families.”
We attended a special evening, a private screening of a new documentary by the Christian Action Network. Present were the survivors, the families and friends of those murdered on 9-11 who had gathered to see the finished film, Sacrificed Survivors: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Mosque, for the first time.
I was particularly struck by the silence in the room as the video ended. It had just concluded with a painfully, beautiful song and the pictures of the children murdered that day.
The pain and loss is still huge.
In the video we heard from survivors. They shared the loss of their murdered loved-ones, murdered by Militant Islamists. We also heard from activists like Robert Spencer, as well as the families.
They warned against the building of the Victory Mega-Mosque at Ground Zero, a towering sign of victory for the Islamic Terrorists.
It is an outrage that nine years later these families pleas are being ignored as they suffer even more the insult of having their Ground Zero Memorial buried SEVEN stories under-ground.
Yet, Imam Rauf is urged-on by Mayor Bloomberg and Obama to build a 15 story mega- mosque on the graves of their loved ones.
All of this in spite of two major Ground Zero Rallies against this Mega-Mosque ( rallies hosted by SIOA) on June 6, 2010 and on 9-11, 2010 that gave voice to these families. They spoke so eloquently; passionately….
Yet, they continue to be ignored!
Adding to their pain is the knowledge that amongst those murdered on 9-11, the men and women who held a rank that horrid day, retired and active-duty, these heroes will be denied the honor of having their ranks listed before their name on the 9-11 Memorial at Ground Zero.
It’s wrong. ALL of this is just plain wrong.
The growing disrespect shown these families by our elected officials and their willingness to see a Mega-Mosque built at Ground Zero is compounded by the Victory Memorial at Shanksville, Pennsylania
It must be stopped. All of it.
To be a realist is not to be an Islamaphobe. The Stealth-Jihad is in full-swing. Stop Sharia Law. Stop the Mega-Mosque at Ground Zero.
Join groups like Stop The Islamization of America (SIOA) and as you educate yourself you can educate your family and friends ; your schools and elected officials.
And plan a screening at your local library, at your church or synagogue. You can purchase a copy of Sacrificed Survivors HERE
So get involved. We can make a difference!
On October 7, 2010 Student organization at Temple University called “T U Purpose’ invited Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller to speak to their fellow students.
The topics they were asked to address were: ” Is there an inextricable relationship between the Ground Zero Mosque and radical Islam? Its construction is constitutional, but is it right, insensitive? Is our Constitution being prostituted? Is the mosque location neither accidental nor a provocation of something greater?” was followed by a spirited and informative Q and A
The Socialists on-campus (and beyond) attempted to shut-down free-speech as Geller and Spencer lead the evening’s discussions regarding Islam ,the Ground Zero Mosque and sharia law
Seems not everyone protesting was a student…
But Geller and Spencer, the student leaders of TU Purpose went forward and spoke calmly and honestly. Free-Speech was the winner, NOT these tired and predictable soc/commie/”progressives”
Part 1 – Pamela Geller
Part 2 – Robert Spencer
Part 3 is first half of the Q and A
Part 4 is second half of the Q and A with a short tag at the end of some post ‘dialogue’ with some of socialist-spouting students in the audience.
Also, a short video of the tedious Socialists who were protesting Geller and Spencer outside , having refused the invitation to attend the event.
And excerpts of the introductory remarks from two of the students representing TU Purpose, Alvaro Watson and Tyrone Penserga

Video in 3 parts: October 7, 2010, the David Horowitz Freedom Center held a reception, luncheon and book signing with Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer at the Union League Club in Philadelphia
This video was filmed under low-light conditions, but with good audio video. You will hear great speeches and a very good Q and A.
Part 1: Pamela Geller‘s speech covers everything from the Ground Zero Mosque to Obama and media censorship, slander and propaganda.
Part 2 : Robert Spencer ‘s speech also covered everything from the Ground Zero Mosque to Obama and media censorship, slander and propaganda
Part 3 : A brief Q and A with Geller and Spencer before the book-signing of “The Post American Presidency”
Slide show of a few pictures at the luncheon:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Left the Union League and walked around Philly. Found the ” Post American Presidency” HIGH up on the shelves at the Borders across from the Union League.
After noticing that the Qurans were also in on the top shelf, I was then informed that the Borders policy does nor place the Quran on the lower shelf. Store policy. The Quran is not to be placed lower than the other religious books. Wondering….Does that mean “The Post American Presidency” has been given a ‘place of honor?”

Later that evening Pamela and Robert were guests of students Of “TU Purpose” at Temple University specifically to discuss the Ground Zero mosque. That post will go up next….

Twenty Five years of the Annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City. TWENTY FIVE YEARS!
Shouldn’t they be CELEBRATING?
Why are they complaining? Each year the confidence of the Muslim community has grown…. even if they pretend otherwise…it has grown.
Yet they snuck this anniversary year in under the radar. No theme announced as usual (which appears to be da’wah) and there was confusion caused by announcing their as 41st street but actually setting up at 38th (even the police seemed a bit confused).
They assembled at 38th (not 41st) and waited for traffic to be shut down….
The lovely golden gown, is a man. Couldn’t place what culture that attire represents.
Guess the red hair is the same as a red beard? All was calm.
The police and the parade participants all were VERY relaxed. Not that they were tense in the past years, but their attitude this year was definitely laid-back (except for the flurry of anxiety begging the police to close the intersection to traffic. They were on-the-clock for their zuhr mid-day prayers).
Even so, there was lots of waiting….
Everyone continues to wait calmly while a big communal display was made of laying-out the prayer-tarps (finally).
The Imam was in-a-rush, so he started the prayers and asked everyone to please pay attention while they laid out the tarps
LOTS of tarps (layers) on both sides of the intersection of 38th and Madison Avenue
This young lady-in pink, however, does NOT look happy.
And then, the actual prayers. (almost). First we heard lots of “brothers and sisters” and “insha’allah’s” while they kept being instructed and corrected on how to form a straight line!
And the children (the boys)
The separation of the women and the men.
For the “Brothers and Sisters” (Insha’allah) that’s quite a divide….
After the “Warm and Fuzzy” prayers….(video)
The “Warm and Fuzzy” Parade (except for some of those more militant chants) which you can see and HEAR in the next two videos (Parts 6 and 7 are the parade) .
Followed by the Police Marching Band playing, as always: “This Is My Country”.
Part 6 (video-the Parade):
The RELIGIOUS Floats return each year. Do we have any major parade in Manhattan that’s comparable ? So boldly religious? Can’t think of any.
The religious theme continued in their signs with many peace-loving quotes from that “warm and fuzzy” guy: Muhammad.
But, there were, also, the political statements from the younger marchers in this religiously, political parade.
With much thanking of Obama along with chants of “We are the Muslims. The Mighty, Mighty Muslims” Definitely a religious/political event.
Always many banners of schools march in the parade….
Some of these girls sure looked like the Catholic nuns of old.
Mayor Bloomberg did NOT co-operate this year when it came to the familiar push to add Muslim Religious Holidays to the school calendar.
Yet, the ‘honorable’ Mayor Bloomberg still managed to be thanked ….over and over… in the speech/lectures at parade’s end.
Cabby Society(? ) Since there seems to be no non-Muslim taxi drivers any more,
I guess this makes sense. But, it’s also NON-political (in case you wondered)…
Part 7 is also video is of the parade as it continued down Madison Avenue to Madison Square Park.
At the park, there was the ever popular Da’wah Table
(The full array of FREE brochures is in the video)
A few of the FREE da’wah brochures (which also included FREE Qurans)
Another parade banner to encourage the INTENDED converts
(Would that be: YOU?)
There was this happy flag-waving Lawrence-of-Arabia look-a like.
(Wish I knew his back-story)
And at the stage, there was a “one-man-band” who screamed “takbir, takbir, takbir” in every open space he could find. Before and after the speech/lectures, book-ending speeches and songs , he never let-up yet he never lost his voice!
That is NOT a yawn, caught him mid-takbir…
And those speaker/lecturers, they stayed ‘on-message’ .
Team-work, so we got lots of whining about being victims of racist, islamophobic, bigots.
During the introductions, the MC kept requesting different leaders of the community to come to the stage.
On film, we happened to catch one woman interrupting the MC with, “Where are the women? Where are the women leaders.”
She seemed to be getting no response so she added, “Keep that in mind. Where are the women”.
No surprise, the women weren’t suddenly added to his list as he continued introducing the male leaders…
Noticed the usual assortment of city politicians were absent this year. No Mayor Bloomberg though he did send a Muslim American woman as his representative (we had seen her represent the Mayor previously at a screening of “What a Billion Muslims Think”)
Fatima Shama – Mayor Bloomberg’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. 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.
Born in the Bronx to immigrant parents – her mother is Brazilian and her late father was “Palestinian” – (That night she was all about The Hair )
However, today she pulled her hair back. Took on a whole ‘nother look as she presented the mayor’s annual award to the parade where he declared this date as “Muslim Parade Day” (again)
Councilman Robert Jackson (Muslim Convert) who, in 2007, proclaimed Harlem the Mecca of New York City and Workers Party, John Liu (now the City Comptroller and we understanding predisposed to make sure the Ground Zero Mosque gets its funding) Where was John? (this is Liu last year, in 2009)
And ‘WHERE OH WHERE’ was the Workers Party, Margaret Chin (who so recently accused her consituents of being islamaphobic-racist- bigots.) Now she’s shy?
Mysteriously, our personal favorite had gone AWOL: ‘Crazy’ Rabbi Feinberg! (Here’s that “Wild and Crazy Rabbi” sharing his warm-and-fuzzy thoughts at an anti-war rally in Union Square)
Feinberg (with umbrella) was having a much BETTER day in 2009…..
Was it easier to whine and play the victim with their dhimmi-politicians missing? No matter, they did make sure that they offered-up the requisite dhimmi-Priest, an even MORE dhimmifide -Rabbi and, “The Imam”.
PART 1 (video) includes the National Anthem (which required urgent crowd instructions before they started)
Video of the speakers from CAIR, ICNA, MAS and the Islamic Cultural Center of New York (who LOVES to rewrite American history). More friends of the parade…
Part 2 – ICNA, MAS & the Islamic Cultural Center of New York
Part 3- CAIR (Nihad Awad)
What was unique to this year’s parade?
This year, most families came dressed in their cultural finery. It was quite lovely at times. The theme? The fashionable, pretty women; the lovely sweet children. Cultural Pride? Diversity. Muslim Pride? But, then we come back to OUTREACH . Da’wah. There is nothing to fear. Join us. We are all ONE.
Apparently, the families did have one complaint. They kept asking for the childrens’ activities. The MC responded more than once saying soon…be patient….But the speech/lectures went on-and-on and ON.
The families weren’t expecting all these media-directed speeches/lectures.
But, the messages were aimed at them, too, not just the media. The repetition about victim-hood, alluding to fear. Urging them to BE AFRAID of those racist, bigoted Americans.
We know why many of these people immigrated to America. Fear brought them to our shores and it wasn’t fear of America or Americans . The American Dream .” “Give me your Tired and Poor” . These do not translate as,” Come to America so you can live in FEAR of Sharia Law. “
FACT: The number of Muslims living in the New York City is growing.
They live here as freely as anyone else in America.
Certainly freer than they do in their Muslim countries of origin , forced to live under Sharia Law.
As Americans, the average Muslim family may not care about politics-as -usual but their college-aged 20-somethings do. They are VERY political thanks to CAIR, ICNA, MAS, the Muslim Brotherhood.
All work hard at indoctrinating the children and the youth (the next generation)
They need them as the next wave, to be LEADERS in their/our communities.
The men and the youth (male and female) marched in the parade to the shouts of “FIGHT BACK , FIGHT BACK, FIGHT BACK ” and “We are the Muslims , the Mighty, Mighty Muslims” as well as to the religious chants of “Takbir, Takbir, Takbir.”
(Urban Infidel caught even more of t-shirts here>>)
The speaker/lecturers encouraged the audience to “ Make a CHANGE.”
They want the adults to “Get Involved”. To show everyone what it means to be a Muslim.
To vote. To become media savvy so they can control the message. To ‘assimilate’.
Then the da’wah continued with the lovely, sweet childrens’ choirs…
I do NOT see the victims they claim to be.

What follows is a short comparison/recap of the previous years that we recorded and observed of the parade (2007, 2008 and 2009)
2007 was the first year I saw the parade. It was on September 9, The 22nd Annual Muslim Day Parade.
2007 Flickr link is here>>
2007 was, also, the year we discovered the NYC Intifada t-shirt and questioned what textbooks were to be used at the newly announced Brooklyn Arabic language school, Kahlil Gibran International Academy..
The Khalil Gibran International Academy (a public school with an all Imam advisory board) left many FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) questions unanswered. But, the American public experienced a “Great Awakening” ; no longer willing to accept the obfuscation that surrounded this public school.WE FOUGHT BACK.
In 2007 there were many people who came out to protest the Annual Muslim Day Parade. (perhaps it was the first protest against the parade) The protestors lined up at 25th and Madison to the surprise of many and added to this public protest were the very angry and threatening Revolution Muslims.
(BTW- In 2008 we took this now well-known picture of the “Jersey Jihadi”. The “Death to all Juice ” guy, Carlos Almonte, while he hung with the Revo-Muzzies in front of the Israeli Consulate). The Revolution Muslims…. are NOT a “Warm and Fuzzy” group of Muslims.
Back to 2007 which was only 6 years after the murders at Ground Zero by Muslim Jihadis and yet hate-groups like the Revolution Muslims, these militant Jew-hating Muslims were on the corner of 26th and Madison preaching racist, bigoted hatred of AMERICA,protected by their Constitutional Right to Free-Speech.
Link to the blog report on 2007 parade is here>>
We understand the dates of the Muslim Day Parade had been consistent for years, but after the 2007 parade the dates began to float; perhaps because of the protests of 2007?
So on October 12, 2008 , the date on which Muslim Jihadists attacked the USS Cole, an American ship in Yemen and murdered American sailors…. on this date they chose to hold the 23rd Annual Muslim Day Parade with no mention of the USS Cole .
It was also Columbus Day (a coincidence, they claimed)
Both years, 2007 and 2008, the Revolution Muslims spoke out aggressively to all who passed-by, but even more boldly in 2008 when they came-over to our-side, to a group of women and started a confrontation.
It was most unusual that the police ignored them, but they showed little interest in sending the Revo-Muzzies back across the street until one of ours threw COFFEE on the lead instigators!
October 18, 2009 was the 24th Annual Muslim Day Parade. Their annual parade was held with no protests. A little rain but it seems everyone who protested on 2007 and 2008 lost interest. This year the vile Revolution Muslims are IN the parade. (without incident) The parade went off without a hitch as it had even during the two protest years.
The CENSUS was the theme in 2009.
IT’S IN YOUR HANDS.
The pressure to be counted in the wake of the ACORN fraud was an unfortunate theme.
But, the press let that slide so… who knew?
This year (2009) I was told, by the police, to stop taking pictures of the set-up for prayers.
I was making the Muslims nervous.
I was intruding on their privacy; making them, their families, nervous. At a PARADE?!
Blog report of 2009 is here>>
This parade has one goal only, year after year: To encourage the trust of the America public in all things Muslim.
Simon Deng and the Sudan. Slavery. Children torn from their families. Murder. Torture. In the 21st Century!
Iran. Islam has been destroying the Persian culture and it’s history for centuries The mullahs and Ah’jad have imprisoned an entire country. Tortured and murdered by the thought-police.
The Islamists strive to destroy the Jews, to destroy Israel (even the displaced peoples of Trans-Jordan) ALL are victims of Islam.
Islam has terrorized the Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists and Pakistan. Islam. A country born on the wings of genocide.Working to tearing India and its culture apart.
France, England,Denmark .The Netherlands . EUROPE is waving a red-flag , warning us of Sharia. “Submission” is blowing in the wind States-Side.
The Ground Zero Mosque and the sobering confidence of Sharia Law proponents Daisy Kahn and Imam Rauf . They claim that Sharia Law is already in our Constitution. they ask why do we think Sharia no place in our country? It’s HERE.
NEVER FORGET the suffering of those murdered on 9-11 in the name of Islam and those who have suffered and continue to suffer in Egypt: The Coptic Christians, and in Greece : The Orthodox and The Armenians.
The centuries of never-ending destruction to the Holy Land. The beautiful Churches and Synagogues of Europe and the Middle East. At Ground Zero, St Nicholas Church was destroyed by Islam. In the 21st Century! ALL have suffered…
In 2010, as I watched the people from Azerbijan/Boznia march-by (and whose children sang so sweetly on the stage) there was an obvious cultural question to be asked.
These were not a people who would have chosen to be Muslim. It was not their culture.
This was conversion by sword. Is this is our future (by stealth or by sword) if we don’t FIGHT BACK?
Will next year’s “26th Annual Muslim Day Parade” have even more significance with the groundbreaking of the “Victory Ground Zero/Cordoba Initiative/Park51 Mosque” ?
Will 2011 mark the end of the 10 year HUDNA? Will that be the year Islam claims VICTORY?
Our media is suckered, our government is suckered; eager shills for the Islamists. CAIR, MAS, ICNA, these are organizations with a verifiable history of supporting violence .Yet, the parade, our government and the media accept them as peace-loving and deny the horrors of Sharia Law and forced-conversions of Islam.
We have a duty to protect our freedoms for our children and our childrens’ children as guaranteed in our Constitution.
Submission is their goal.
If we permit them to shut us down, to remain or to become complacent, we will have lost the “WAR Against the WEST”
We must FIGHT BACK without apology or we become Europe.
This is WAR.
