Renee Ellmers for Congress; No Mosque at Ground Zero

We concur with North Carolina’s Renee Ellmers that “The terrorists haven’t won. We should tell them in plain English, ‘No; there will never be a mosque at Ground Zero.'” Ellmers spoke with Freedom Radio about the mosque and her campaign to unseat Congressman Bob Etheridge:

Last year, eight Muslim residents of her Congressional district were arrested for plotting to attack the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia which demonstrated the threat posed by the rise of radical Islamists here is a national security concern.

Her opponent for North Carolina’s 2nd District seat, Congressman Bob Etheridge, reportedly “has never thought building this mosque and community center so close to Ground Zero is a good idea.” Yet his campaign spokesman Mike Davis “acknowledged that Etheridge has never offered his opinion publicly, but said that’s because ‘he’s not going to get involved in it. … That decision is for New York.'”

We join Renee Ellmers in her call for the leadership of the Republican and Democrat caucuses in Congress to support a resolution opposing the Ground Zero Mosque.

Ceding ground to those who promote the establishment of discriminatory sharia law here in America would encourage both the violent and “non-violent” jihad being waged against our Nation.

America was attacked on 9/11; the Stars and Stripes is the only victory flag that should ever fly over our sacred ground.

Obama and State Dept helping Imam Rauf build sharia mosque at Ground Zero

Cordoba Initiative Imam Fesiel Abdul Rauf was not at Tuesday’s Landmark Commission hearing over the plan to tear down an 152-year old historical building and replace it with a mosque overlooking Ground Zero. Perhaps President Barack Obama had the State Department send Imam Rauf off again as an envoy to the Muslim world, as IslamOnline reports:

CAIRO – Sitting firmly in his seat with a determined look in his eyes, American Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf appears resolved to bridge the gap between the West and the Muslim world. “My purpose is to spread harmony and peace between the West and the Muslim world,” Imam Abdul-Rauf, chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, told IslamOnline.net in an exclusive interview. “My role is to see how can my work help improve this relationship.”

Imam Abdul-Rauf is currently on a State Department-sponsored tour to build bridges. “This is part of it as the work is huge and can’t be done by one person or one organization,” he said. “It is also to share people like yourself the work that we do. We need people in the media and we need people to talk to understand what we do.” He defended the US government’s support for his organization.

Is it ‘separation of church and state’ to send a sharia-compliant imam to build bridges to the Muslim world while filling his coffers to build a Cordoba House overlooking Ground Zero?

Former New York Governor George Pataki was asked this morning if this is a freedom-of-faith issue on Fox News:

Bill Hemmer: “Our Mayor says the government should keep out of religion. Is this the right example?”

Governor Pataki: “Yes. Government should keep out of religion but religion should not engage in [supporting] terrorist activity.”

All religions should be kept out of government.

Yet the Muslim Brotherhood has secretly worked here for five decades to destroy America from within. They advocate sharia law which, in Islamic countries: stones to death 14-year old girls and old women for “adultery;” flogs un-married couples found together un-chaperoned; excuses gangs that rape “immodest” women; tortures gays and hangs them from light poles; dismembers apostates; cuts the heads off those who speak against the Koran’s war-mongering and discriminatory passages; and levies a ‘devalue-added’ tax against all non-Muslims. They want religious freedom eliminated from this good earth in the name of Allah and America is their prime target.

Islam should not lord over where sharia-complying Muslims committed genocide and brave American heroes fell.

When Imam Rauf denounces da’wah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, political Islam, sharia, and 1400-year old hate-speech, I’ll bring my shovel and help break ground for his Cordoba House. Barring that, Rauf should stick his House of Da’wah in an Islamic-governed nation, but not anywhere in America where the light of liberty still shines.

Tolerating a 15-story Islamist threat overlooking hallowed Ground Zero is un-American

After reading this New York Post report, we hope New York’s Mayor is merely confused: “Michael Bloomberg said it would be unAmerican to investigate the mosque [sic] that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.”

We do not ask for an investigation without cause.

The Cordoba Initiative received its largest donation, $576,312, from Qatar, just prior to the purchase of the Burlington Coat Factory:

[On May 17, 2010], representatives of 9/11 [Families for a Safe & Strong America] met with Sharif El-Gamal, owner and CEO of Soho Properties, the corporation that purchased the two buildings where the mosque will be built at 43-45 Park Place, and asked him to name the investors in the mosque project. Mr. El-Gamal refused, citing the advice of his attorneys, stating that “this is private property” and that “we can build this ‘as of right.’” The property was purchased with $4.85 million in cash.

In Arabic, Imam Rauf changed his story as to where that $4.85 million came from. Barring a full and fair accounting of the money to buy and build the Cordoba House, it should be audited and investigated by legal authorities.

That is not all that is wrong with Mayor Bloomberg’s word: un-American. It is misdirected.

We believe in freedom of faith; all have an unalienable right to believe or not believe in something beyond earthly mortality. Imam Rauf often has said of the Cordoba House, “It is not a mosque.” So, what is true? Rauf admits that there would be a place within those walls for the faithful to pray and it falls within what Muslims define as a mosque. His religion, whether we believe in it or not, is not why we object.

It is Imam Rauf who suggests that political Islam, more specifically sharia law, should rule all nations. Our Nation was founded in liberty; we should never stand silent while a discriminatory ideology is promoted. And we should not “tolerate” its promotion under guise of religion overlooking hallowed ground where genocide was committed and brave American heroes fell.

Rauf has openly admitted he will use that site and “the World Trade Center rubble” for “da’wah,” the call to non-believers to Islam. If he was totally honest, Imam Rauf would admit that da’wah is an offer we can not refuse for if we do, the jihad is authorized.

America need not tolerate a 15-story threat two blocks away from where we paid so dear a price for not heeding the warnings from Islamists. We should never accede to their demands to submit — not at Ground Zero or anywhere else.
