Islamic Imperialism in Manhattan
By: Craig Chamberlain
From the ruins of the world trade center arises… well it’s not going to be another trade center, or, for that fact, a memorial to the atrocities committed on September 11, 2001. Instead it’s going to be a memorial to the multicultural ideals of our ruling elites, and a memorial to the notion of Islamic supremacy. The Cordoba foundation, an ostensibly peaceful group of Muslims dedicated to peaceful coexistence with people of other religions is intent on building a 13 story mosque and “cultural center”(code for terrorist training school) on the ruins of ground zero.
This is a tactic that is as old as Islam itself. Whenever the ravaging hordes of Muhammad would conquer a new area, they would destroy the most important place of worship and build a mosque, or they would convert the most important place of worship into a mosque. It was a move to signify Muslim superiority, it was there way of saying: we won, and we’re not going anywhere. That is exactly what the Cordoba foundation wants to say with its new mega mosque. It wants to show to all the world, especially the Muslim world, that the attacks of 9-11 were a great victory for the jihad, and nothing can stop the new vanguard of Islam. Just as the Muslims turned the cathedral of St. John into a mosque when they conquered Antioch, or they desecration of the Haiga Sophia in Constantinople. Thousands of Buddhist and Hindu temples across India were destroyed to make way for the mosques of the conquering sword of the prophet.
The construction of a mosque on ground zero is an affront on two grounds. First it dishonors the thousands of Americans(of all faiths, or no faith at all) by building a monument to the ideology that killed them, and it shows our leaders for what they really are. Cowards of the worst order. At least those other acts of desecration did not happen willingly. The Muslims had to use force to tear down cathedrals and turn them into mosques. They destroy a symbol of America, kill three thousand people, and we reward them for it by allowing them to build a monument to their own glory and their desire for Jihad.
The victims of 9-11 were all killed by Muslims. It wasn’t a group of militant Mormons, or angry Methodists, or extremist Buddhists, that attacked the world trade center, the Pentagon, and would have attacked the White House if those brave men hadn’t fought back against the terrorists. It was 19 Arab men, who were all inspired by the theology of Muhammad. Instead of standing up to the Muslims, and tell them that they don’t have the right to build a mosque to commemorate their attack, they cower and capitulate. They hide behind freedom of religion.
This is a despicable double standard. We put restrictions on freedom of religion all the time. A Christian can’t pray in public, but Muslim extremists can build a mosque on ground zero. Religious constructions are held up frequently by local governments, and often on the flimsiest of grounds. At least they’re held up if it is a Christian group that is attempting to do the building. Imagine if evangelicals wanted to build a mega church on the site, or if Catholics wanted to build a cathedral or Mormons a temple?
The guardians of our secular faith would piously point their fingers at them and tell them that ground zero was no place for religious buildings, but that it must be preserved and rebuilt for other purposes. But bring a violent, third world religion into the picture and watch how things change. The leaders in New York can’t wait for the construction to begin, it shows how enlightened and tolerant they are to allow the enemies of enlightenment and tolerance to build a monument to their own aggression.
There is plenty of room for religious freedom in America, and plenty of places for Muslims to build their mosque, ground zero just isn’t one of them.
