The Mosque

Let's be real, nothing good could come from "an Islamic Community Center" being built within a couple blocks of the fallen World Trade Center towers in New York. There is an element of doing an endzone dance and unbelievable arrogance, insensitivity, and contempt placing a structure that will ridicule and torment those who still hear cries of Islamic terrorists proclaiming the glory of Allah as they murdered over 3000 Americans. Yes, they were motivated by their understanding of the Islamic faith, and yes there is language in The Koran that can be interpretted to act in such a way. The Koran is not just another culture's attempt to articulate what's in the Bible. Read it and find out.

Meanwhile, the politicians and social commentators are showing what totally wishy washy people without resolve some of us have become. On purely legal grounds, it is probably lawful for the Islamic group to build their victory center. However, everybody who lives and works in that area or lost loved one on 9/11/01 has something to say about it too. What about the Eastern Orthodox Church destroyed in the blasts?  Their church isn't rebuilt is it?

That these Islamic leaders would have called their center the Cordova project is even more foretelling of what it's all about. When the Moors conquered Spain, they built a Mosque on the site of their conquest with that name.

It's time to cut out the political correctness and be honest. Our culture is at war with Islam. Maybe we didn't want to go to war with them, but... Oh well, they chose to destroy us.

While all Americans are free to practice whatever religion they choose. Not all religions are created equally. The Islamic doctrine is full of invitations to murder and abuse toward anyone those who are in positions of power within Islam select to target.

We need to do all we can to assimulate Islamic people into our culture, our values, and our respect for life and mankind. That's our way of practicing our freedom of religion. Yes, it works that way too.
