    This is a clearly stated, sensible, and historically accurate statement on the issue of the proposed ?Cordoba House? Mosque near Ground Zero.

    There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia . The time for
    double standards that allow Islamists to behave aggressively toward us while they demand our weakness and submission is over.

    The proposed "Cordoba House" overlooking the World Trade Center site
    where a group of jihadists killed over 3000 Americans and destroyed one of our most famous landmarks - is a test of the timidity, passivity and historic ignorance of American elites. For example, most of them don't understand that Cordoba House is a deliberately insulting term. It refers to Cordoba, Spain the capital of Muslim conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a church there into the worlds third-largest mosque complex.

    Today, some of the Mosques backers insist this term is being used to "symbolize interfaith cooperation" when, in fact, every Islamist in
    the world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of Islamic conquest. It is a sign of their contempt for Americans and their confidence in our historic ignorance that they would deliberately insult us this way. Those Islamists and their apologists who argue for "religious toleration" are arrogantly dishonest. They ignore the fact that more than 100 mosques already exist in New York City . Meanwhile, there are no churches or synagogues in all of Saudi Arabia . In fact no Christian or Jew can even enter Mecca . And they lecture us about tolerance.

    If the people behind the Cordoba House were serious about religious toleration, they would be imploring the Saudis, as fellow Muslims, to
    immediately open up Mecca to all and immediately announce their intention to allow non-Muslim houses of worship in the Kingdom. They should be asked by the news media if they would be willing to lead such a campaign.

    We have not been able to rebuild the World Trade Center in nine years.
    Now we are being told a 13 story, $100 million megamosque will be built within a year overlooking the site of the most devastating surprise attack in American history.

    Finally where is the money coming from? The people behind the Cordoba House refuse to reveal all their funding sources. America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive designed to undermine and destroy our civilization. Sadly, too many of our elites are the willing apologists for those who would destroy them if they could. No mosque. No self deception. No surrender. The time to take a stand is now - at this site on this issue.

    If, after reading this, you agree, please pass it on to others.

    The cheese gets a little more binding.

    Soon we will have enough. The same "can't take it any more" frame of mind that spawned the Tea party movement will manifest itself again, only with a more serious overtone.

    The country is not completely composed of metrosexual elites, after all.

    And Bloomberg should wake up and choose the correct side.

    Anybody who disagrees is an unpatriotic wimp, period.


    ...those are my "American Ideals," and I'm sticking to them (thanks Mr. Obama).

    Halfmile,


    Screw Bloomberg. He's already chosen sides at least a dozen times in public and on camera. I sincerely hope the population of New York wakes up and throws his ass out of office.


    The man is pond scum.

    It is hard to consider Islam a religion. It is more a form of government and a method of government takeover than it is a religion. It is a religion in the same way that communism is a religion. They should be treated as a group of radicals with the intended purpose being the overthrow of our freedom and our form of government. They want to use our constitution to overthrow our constitution by hiding behind a religious status.
