Outrage: Muslims Building Super-Mosque At Ground Zero

Remember the guy who murdered his parents and then pleaded for mercy, on the grounds he was an orphan?

He just emailed me to say, "This is shameless."

Plans to bring what one critic calls a "monster mosque" to the site of the old Burlington Coat Factory building, at a cost expected to top $100 million, moved along for months without a peep. All of a sudden, even members of the community board that stupidly green-lighted the mosque this month are tearing their hair out.

Paul Sipos, member of Community Board 1, said a mosque is a fine idea -- someplace else.

"If the Japanese decided to open a cultural center across from Pearl Harbor, that would be insensitive," Sipos told me. "If the Germans opened a Bach choral society across from Auschwitz, even after all these years, that would be an insensitive setting. I have absolutely nothing against Islam. I just think: Why there?"

Why, indeed.

A rally against the mosque is planned for June 6, D-Day, by the human-rights group Stop Islamicization of America. Executive director Pamela Geller said, "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 the eye of America."

Called Cordoba House, the mosque and center is the brainchild of the American Society for Muslim Advancement. Executive director Daisy Khan insists it's staying put.

"For us, it's a symbol, a platform that will give voice to the silent majority of Muslims who suffer at the hands of extremists. A center will show that Muslims will be part of rebuilding lower Manhattan," said Khan, adding that Cordoba will be open to everyone.

It's a symbol for me, too, Khan. It's symbolic of how there is a lot of undeveloped space in Lower Manhattan, now had for discount prices, because a group of Muslims made a smoking crater of one of the world's most densely populated places and killed 2,996 people.

It's a symbol of the old rules of dhimmitude, whereby dhimmis' churches and buildings would be, by law, restricted to be shorter than Muslims', thereby symbolically affirming Islamic dominance. Except here, the dominance was first established by flying bomb filled with jet fuel.

In case you weren't sure of what the symbolism was intended to be, Khan's eager to remind you. The super-mosque -- the world's largest Temple of Murder -- is set to open on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 -- September 11, 2011.

Do I believe his crap about this being a voice of moderation? No, not at all. These guys make that sort of claim all the time and then it turns out that a lot of them are actually jihadi sleeper agents. Al Alawi, for example, was supposedly "moderate" too, and anti-terrorism, until he turned into the new top Cantor of Carnage for Al Qaeda. His apologists claim he was "driven" to this (as they always do). Others say he was always Al Qaeda, but merely hiding his allegiance until activated by the great murderous cause.

So I don't believe this rotten bastard. And I don't believe it because anyone with the merest speck of regard and respect for his victims would be sensitive to the obvious symbolism of this action and refrain from it. Someone with the vaguest appreciation of the carnage unleashed that day, and the murderous impulses of many Muslims, would realize that this will soon become the most popular mosque outside of Mecca, and not for its message (supposedly) of peace and moderation.

Someone who cared for what the dhimmi thought at all would recognize this as singularly, incandescently inappropriate.

Someone truly interested in peace and moderation would not build a temple to the religion that killed 2,996, allowing jihdis to literally -- literally -- dance on the unmarked, uncollected remains of their victims.

It will become a top pilgrimage site for violent jihadists and their numberless supporters because it represents the triumph of violent Islam over the decadent West.

And if we let them build this, we are decadent indeed.

Oops: I was writing this as Drew was putting his up... Ah well, I wanted to weigh in too.

More, from Human Events:

Worse still, the design for the Ground Zero Mosque is a mockery of the World Trade Center building design. Islamic jihadists took down those buildings when they attacked and murdered 3,000 people in an act of conquest and Islamic supremacism. What better way to mark your territory than to plant a giant mosque on the still-barren land of the World Trade Center?

Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in eye of America.

Joan Brown Campbell, director of the Department of Religion at the Chautauqua
Institution in upstate New York and former general secretary of the National Council of Churches, admitted that a mosque at Ground Zero could anger infidels. But it was worth it, she said: “Building so close is owning the tragedy.”

This best demonstrates the territorial nature of Islam. The very idea of building a mosque at Ground Zero is a manifestation of Islamic domination and expansionism.

The location is no accident. Just as it was no accident that the Al-Aqsa Mosque was built on top of the Temple in Jerusalem.
