Sarah Palin becomes the first national political personality to support the growing resistance movement to aggressive Islamization tactics, the crowning jewel of which would be construction of a mega mosque right next to the site where Muslims savagely murdered nearly 3,000 innocent Americans.
Why would any peace-loving Muslim want to offend ordinary Americans by insisting on erecting a mosque there? Educated Muslims, as well as aficionados of their culture, know well that Islam has always used architecture to express political and spiritual dominance. In fact, so does every civilization. That’s why they took down the Twin Towers.
SIOA (STOP the ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA) is holding another peaceful protest against the Ground Zero mega mosque on September 11th. Be there.
Palin: “Mayor Bloomberg, this isn’t about religious intolerance, it’s about common decency.”
“Earlier today, Mayor Bloomberg responded to my comments about the planned mosque at Ground Zero by suggesting that a decision not to allow the building of a mosque at that sacred place would somehow violate American principles of tolerance and openness.
No one is disputing that America stands for – and should stand for – religious tolerance. It is a foundation of our republic. This is not an issue of religious tolerance but of common moral sense. To build a mosque at Ground Zero is a stab in the heart of the families of the innocent victims of those horrific attacks.
Just days after 9/11, the spiritual leader of the organization that wants to build the mosque, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf,suggested that blame be placed on the innocents when he stated that the “United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened” and that “in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.” Rauf refuses to recognize that Hamas is a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of our ally, Israel, and refuses to provide information about the sources of funding for the $100 million mosque. Rauf also plays a key role in a group behind the flotilla designed to provoke Israel in its justifiable blockade of Gaza. These are just a few of the points Americans are realizing as New York considers the proposed mosque just a stone’s throw away from 9/11’s sacred ground.
I agree with the sister of one of the 9/11 victims (and a New York resident) who said: “This is a place which is 600 feet from where almost 3,000 people were torn to pieces by Islamic extremists. I think that it is incredibly insensitive and audacious really for them to build a mosque, not only on that site, but to do it specifically so that they could be in proximity to where that atrocity happened.”
Many Americans, myself included, feel it would be an intolerable and tragic mistake to allow such a project sponsored by such an individual to go forward on such hallowed ground. This is nothing close to “religious intolerance,” it’s just common decency.”
