The Mosque

This is an update to a previous post not on this Blog site.

After hearing the President and his whining left-wing minions in the mainstream media support the construction of a 13 story Islamic center and mosque two blocks from “Ground Zero” on Manhattan Island.

They tell us Islam is a religion of Peace. This is not true. Islam means submission, submission to the will of God. The Koran states that once a territory is conquered in the name of Islam a mosque must be erected to claim the territory for Allah. This is the third step in the process to establishing the Caliphate. The second, and most important, step is Jihad or the struggle to achieve the Caliphate when there will be peace through the submission (Islam) to the will of Allah. All you have to do is look at Spain where there were hundreds of mosques built over the ruins of Catholic churches.

The construction of this mosque in the location proposed is the final step in conquest of Manhattan Island.

Those in favor of the mosque state that this is a First Amendment and private property issue. Even the President stated that since it was on private property the building of the mosque should go forward. I don’t see it that way. No one is saying they cannot build a mosque, they are saying don’t build it there. To me it’s a zoning issue.

There are thousands of Muslims living in New York City, mainly in Brooklyn many miles from Ground Zero. To reach this mosque and Islamic culture center they will have to travel many miles from Brooklyn. In a demographic sense this does not make much sense. To me the location selected for the mosque is more of a statement of Caliphate.

There is another church at Ground Zero. It is little St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. It was heavily damaged on September 11, 2001. Since 1922, St. Nicholas Church had stood as a quiet sanctuary of prayer and reflection amidst the tumultuous and bustling crossroads of commerce. For the past nine years the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey has used bureaucratic obstacles and false promises to hinder the rebuilding of the St. Nicholas Church. No one seems to care much about Saint Nicholas. After all there is not a large Greek contingent lobbying for this church that does not celebrate Christmas on December 25th. They are not like the cuddly Muslims. So much for private property and religious tolerance.

The minions in the mainstream media talk of religious tolerance. Tolerance as defined in the dictionary is:
  1. A fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one's own; freedom from bigotry.
  2.  A fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.
  3. interest in and concern for ideas, opinions, practices, etc., foreign to one's own; a liberal, undogmatic viewpoint.
To Tolerate is defined as:
Verb (used with object), -at•ed, -at•ing.
  1.  To allow the existence, presence, practice, or act of without prohibition or hindrance; permit.
  2.  To endure without repugnance; put up with: I can tolerate laziness, but not incompetence.
We tolerate many things in the name of tolerance. Unlike our Muslim brothers who tolerate nothing outside of Islam. Sharia Law dictates that no unclean thing should be tolerated by Muslims. Some of these unclean things are pigs, blood, dogs, bibles, and crosses, stars of David, Jews Hindus, Buddhists and Christians. It was just two weeks ago that four Christian missionaries were beheaded in Afghanistan for the charge of passing out bibles. Now that’s real tolerance. Islam is not a religion peace; it’s a religion of submission. The word means submission, submission to the will of Allah. If you don’t submit you will be killed.

The President speaks of private property and the rights of people do as they wish on that property. Now that’s a new one. Let’s take a look at that private properly issue.

My neighbor is an African American; He is a good guy and a great neighbor. Do I have a right to burn a cross on my lawn? After all it is my property. Tolerance and the First Amendment state that I have this right. I guarantee that such an act will not be tolerated by my neighbors or the Menifee police. I will be charged with a hate crime, even on my private property. I could probably burn my beautiful American flag, but not the cross. Many people will not tolerate the flying of the Confederate flag. They say it is a symbol of racism. What will we call it when the Muslim call to prayer echoes down the canyons of Manhattan Island five times each day? What will the ghosts of those 3,000 have to say?

If the Japanese wanted to build a Shinto shrine at Pearl Harbor I am sure this would not be tolerated. Tolerance would dictate that the Shinto shrine is a religious edifice and should be tolerated under the First Amendment.

Here are a few more examples of where tolerance and toleration come into conflict.
  • An adult book store next to a church or school assuming the proposed site was zoned for commercial use.
  •  A gun store next to Columbine High School
  •  A German army museum, with NAZI memorabilia, next to the Washington D.C. or Los Angeles holocaust museums.
  •  A Timothy McVeigh hamburger stand in Oklahoma City.
  •  A sports bar next to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting center
  • And finally, a gay and lesbian bar across the street from the proposed Islamic Center at Ground Zero.
Several years ago there were plans to build a Catholic convent in the vicinity of the Auschwitz concentration camp. When protests arose from the international Jewish community Pope John-Paul canceled the plans to build the convent. He did this to honor the sensitivities of the Jewish protester and their protests against the actions or inactions of the Vatican during WWII.

If the Muslim leadership wanted to be tolerant and build bridges they would announce that to respect the victims of the 9/11 attack they would not build a mosque near Ground Zero as the Pope did with the convent. This would bring them no end of good will and respect. However, that’s not what the Muslim leaders like Imam Abdul Rauf want. They want to stick it in our eye. They want us to submit to their will. They know we have a legal system that gives them the right to build this mosque and they will exercise that right come hell or high water. They will use our tolerance to make us submit.

How much in the name of tolerance will we tolerate in this republic? It was Associate Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, a liberal Roosevelt appointee, who said: “The choice is not between order and liberty. It is between liberty with order and anarchy without either. There is danger that, if the court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact." Are we heading towards a mass drinking of hemlock?
