Ground Zero Mosque Imam: Build it or else

Aren't you glad he's a moderate Muslim:

"If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse, the headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it. The battlefront is between moderates of all sides... and the radicals on all sides," he said.

Moving the project to another location would strengthen Islamist radicals' ability to recruit followers and will likely increase violence against Americans, the imam said.

Wow. They'll really hate us if we don't build the mosque, or build it somewhere else?

So much for Mr. Compassionate Friendly All-Inclusive Bridge-Builder.

Hey, maybe there's some secret gold reserve buried under the building, and they'll have to tunnel directly down through the basement to get to it...

What cracks me up is Obama said "that Muslims have the right to build a mosque near New York's ground zero". However "the White House had asserted that it did not want to get involved in local decision-making" so they would not comment on the appropriateness of it.

However they take the opposite approach to the book burning. Why didn't he say they had a right to do so and why did they comment on the appropriateness of it even though it is a local issue?

He is not the only one being expose of having a double standard.

Sounds like a threat to me. How does he come by his knowledge? And how can 72% of americans be radical? How can he make that claim and not be challenged? I really didn't have a firm opinion of this guy one way or the other, but now I think his plan is something other then what is presented. It is a victory trophy. This is why some pastors are burning Koran's. ww

Sounds like a win win if your a 12th century barbarian.

The "peaceful" religion of Islam is not looking as such. It is intolerant. Sexist. Uncompassionate. Violent. Political. Yet the MSM seems to not ever challenge their beliefs. No wonder people find it necessary to demonstrate how intolerant they are by being intolerant. I am watching Florida Saturday. One little pastor of a 50 people congregation is going to show just how peaceful and tolerant Islam is. ww

Steve Crickmore:

This whole incongrous one sided debate, which recalls what George Bush said and later regretted, "bring them on" or "Americans don't torture" except when they do.

Or as Rick said yesterday, "I`m a fiscal conservative for smaller government", except for the Pentagon. Now it is the Cordoba Initative and the inevitable exceptions.

Palin: "No one is disputing that America stands for - and should stand for - religious tolerance,"

Of course, the official Palin/wizbang conservative position should be "we are tolerant of religion" just not here in America, or except when we are intolerant.

No Kantian imperative on Wizbang. Must be lovely to have 'principles' that don't get in the way of your prejudices.

"Of course, the official Palin/wizbang conservative position should be "we are tolerant of religion" just not here in America, or except when we are intolerant."

I cant speak for others but I am not tolerant of a murderous cult placing a victory mosque adjascent to the trade centers. I do not call that "religion". More like "we won".

As has been noted, Faisal Assad has another mosque down the street for 20+ years.. He can do his "bridge building" at THAT LOCATION.

Steve Crickmore and the left take time out from funding Virgin Mary images smeared with elephant dung, immersing crucifixes in urine (with tax-payer dollars), having members of act-up disrupt actual Christian worship services, and innumerable acts of religious intolerance and bigotry to suddenly rant about their newly discovered concept of "religious sensitivity" and, whadya know, it's in defense of the most intolerant religion on the face of the earth.

And then li'l stevie dares to lecture others on "prejudices that don't get in the way of your principles".

BTW, when was the last big anti-war rally? I didn't see it in the news. There must have been one of course, since the left never allows it's "prejudices to get in the way of it's principles".....

"Moving the project.... will only provoke more violence against Americans"

.....(And like 9/11, Americans will only have themselves to blame!)........

What a wretched priest! What a wretched (Arab) culture! Be thankful that only the religion
of the Musselman,(archaic, but non-the-less valid), comports itself with such consistent
wretchedness. Islam is, quite clearly, totally out of step with Mankind. Its strengths are its self serving nature, its obfuscation and its unabashed duplicity....Born among Arabs, spread by the sword and having no association at all with a God in paradise. No other faith in this world is so hate filled or so blighted...so completely given over to bloodlust. Islam is an invention purely of men. Evil men! And it was thus at its beginning and is, even so, today.
My heartfelt blessing on all other religions on Earth; particulary you jews because you benefit all Mankind so richly, so consistently.

There! My passion has spent itself. And I; a mild-mannered, former long-service Centurion of Canadian infantry. I think I shall quickly slip back into a ladies frock and go squat in the bottom of a dark closet to recover my modesty. I could meet the friend of the imam there you know...'Ebonicus Rex'...who does his clearest thinking in a closet like mine. But my wife's frocks are much prettier than any of Michelle's! A bit to big in the arse methinks. (Or should I have used the ebonical, 'booty'?)

Steve Crickmore:

914:victory church... murderous cult.
kind of answers my question. I have made a few longish visits to muslim Africa and what saves the people, in my opinion from their poverty is their religion, otherwise they might be totally lawless and broken. We need to work with what we have. Honor killings, stonings are abominable but the alternative would be almost nilhism in that part of the underdeveloped world, "the grand inquisitor" justification for religion.

Yes, I think there is prejudice to the American Imam. Perhaps, if he didn`t pronounce controversy, contraversy, the British way, pure wool, white Americans would be more in his corner?

But if Muhammad Ali, a conscientious objector to the Vietnam war, could be chosen as "The Sportsman of the Century" and be the popular choice to light the Olympic flame at the opening ceremony for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, we would should be able to accept a inter-faith centre near Ground Zero, led by Imam Rauf who has been a banner carrier by two successive administrations for international peace. Maybe the Iman could call it the Muhammad Ali, Olympic youth centre, with an appropriate ribbon-cutting ceremony and the public would be placated?

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

I would let that Imam know, in no uncertain terms if we are attacked again we will destroy the nation of origin. Muslims understand, at a very basic level, brute force. Most of them live in nations ruled by brute force. They kill 1000 of us we kill 10,000,000 of them. They would get the message really soon.
