Sign the Petition: We Oppose the Mosque at Ground Zero and We Urge You to Join Us in Opposition

9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America stands with Act for America in opposition to a mosque at Ground Zero. Together, we ask that you sign the following petition:

To the Elected Officials of New York:

Dear Friend,

Imagine the American response in 1950 if the Japanese government sought to erect a shrine to its World War II Emperor in Pearl Harbor, right next to the sunken wreckage of the USS Arizona.

Would “outrage” be strong enough to describe the response?

Fast forward to 2010.

Less than nine years after the worst terrorist attack on American soil in our history, an imam who blames America for the 9/11 attack wants to construct a 13 story mosque and Islamic center 600 feet from “Ground Zero.”

This is an outrage!

Public opinion forced many New York officials, as well as officials in the Obama administration, to reconsider locating a civilian trial for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, in New York.

Now we need a tidal wave of public opinion to flood New York officials telling them that allowing a mosque to be built at ground zero is a slap in the face of the thousands of families who lost loved ones in that jihadist attack.

This is why ACT! for America is launching a nationwide petition that we will deliver to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, urging him and other New York officials to oppose the building of this mosque in this location.

To read and sign the petition please click here. Only your name and state will be included in the petition we send to Mayor Bloomberg.

9/11 survivors and their families are in disbelief at the insensitivity being expressed by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his supporters who want this mosque at ground zero.

They are astonished that an imam who endorses sharia law, the same law system that motivated the jihadists to blow up the World Trade Center, would be so brazen as to erect a mosque at ground zero.

There are many other places such a mosque could be located.

What’s more, guess what day they are planning for the grand opening of the mosque?

September 11, 2011—the ten year anniversary of the jihadist atrocity.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! This grotesque symbolism, this spitting in the face of the families of the victims of 9/11, is going too far!

I urge you to join me in standing with the families of the victims of 9/11. Please sign our petition and forward this email to EVERYONE you know! Now is the time to ACT!

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel
President, ACT! for America

Obama Turns 9/11 Observance Over to al Qaeda Sympathizer

Editor — ‘Obama Turns 9/11 Observance Over to al Qaeda Sympathizer’ by Kristinn Taylor of Free Republic first appeared there on August 24, 2009, and is reprinted here with permission.

——

Matthew Vadum, writing in today’s American Spectator, blows the cover off Barack Obama’s plans to hijack the observance of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by turning it over to the radical leftist Lennox Yearwood of the politically well-connected Hip Hop Caucus.

This news has been hiding in plain sight, but got lost in the battle this month over nationalized health care, so Vadum has done a great service by bringing this to our attention.

Vadum’s piece has been picked up by Michelle Malkin and Gateway Pundit.

This article is intended to fill in some big pieces of the picture about what this means. Such as Yearwood calling the war on al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan in response to 9/11, “immoral” (Huffington Post, March 20, 2009) and the Air Force accusing the reservist (a 2nd Lt.) of being a threat to national security.

Yearwood is a Marxist who works closely with other leftist terrorist supporting groups including the ANSWER Coalition, and Code Pink.
