Reality Check: On Mosques

Greetings puny Earthlings.

There's a lot of chatter going on about the proposed Islamic Mosque/Community Center that a group wants to build pretty much adjacent to the site of the 9/11/2001 attack.

This issues calls for a reality check so let's look at the reasons why and why not.

Here is the main argument for building the mosque at Ground Zero used by its supporters:

1. If you don't love the mosque you're a dirty racist.

Here are the reasons why it shouldn't be built.

1. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Imam in the forefront of the project. He claims to be a moderate Muslim, who sort of kind of maybe condemned the 9/11 attack, but said America
probably did something to deserve it anyway, and he also claims to be unable to tell Hamas from a hole in the ground.

2. We know very little about the backers of this project. Only that they wield a lot of money, and scream racism whenever anyone asks any questions about them or their sources of capital. Let's not forget The Holy Land Foundation, an Islamic charity with a similar opaque structure that was up to its neck in terrorist financing. I know it seems unfair to target organizations promoting one specific religion for such scrutiny, but right now the Presbyterian and Buddhist charities aren't paying for terrorism and propaganda that promotes it.

3. In Islamic tradition the main reason for building a mosque on the site of an Islam inspired mass murder is not to built links between communities, or pray for the souls of the lost. It's to assert a message of Islamic victory and supremacy, no doubt to be used in Al Qaida propaganda looming over the wreckage of the Twin Towers.

4. They named the project as a reminder of Islamic rule of the Spanish city of Cordoba, claiming it marks a time of goodwill, tolerance, and brotherhood. Cordoba did have that, for a little while, but a few decades are used to whitewash centuries of oppression, intolerance, and brutality.

5. The builders of this project claim that Greg Gutfeld's plan to build a Muslim friendly gay bar
next door doesn't take into their account Muslim sensibilities. What does that tell you about the people behind this project? It shows that their sensibilities are the only ones that matter, because they don't give a rat's ass about the sensibilities of New Yorkers who lost 3,000 of their friends and neighbors in the name of Islam.

6. Speaking of sensibilities, Muslim sensibilities generally forbid the building of ANY buildings for servicing any religion other than Islam. If they predate Islamic conquest, then under the dhimmi laws they cannot be expanded, or in many cases maintained, in any way because that's seen as an insult to Islam. These buildings, and the people who worship in them are also regularly subjected to vandalism, harassment, and even violence in the name of preserving Islam's honor.

And yet if you don't like the Ground Zero Mosque, then YOU are the bigot.

They are free to build mosques, that is their right in a free, non-Islamic society, but they are not free to play nasty politically correct games to tear down the society that allows them the freedom they are currently enjoying.

Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.

Let them build it. Then fly a 747 into it.

Or build a giant synagogue across the street.
