The Travesty at Ground Zero

First, a stark reminder for anyone who’s forgotten that what happened on 9/11 was an act of war waged not upon a military installation, but innocent civilians. Among these victims, those who leaped to their death offer the most chilling insight as to just how horrific conditions were inside the World Trade Center. As many witnesses have stated, some held hands, while others jumped alone. When careening to a violent death from  90+ stories above street level is the better option, it’s gut-wrenching to even imagine what it must’ve been like inside.

If this video offends you, direct your anger at the Muslims who perpetrated 9/11, and the ones who are still waging Global Jihad.

And now, nine years later, when we still haven’t erected a memorial to honor the victims — including the incredibly heroic fire-fighters and policemen who willingly gave their lives to save others — sane Americans find themselves in the absurd position of having to fight against the travesty of a proposed mosque a scant few blocks away from the scene of utter destruction and human tragedy. Further, as AIP notes, “Part of one of the hijacked planes went through the building (Burlington Coat Factory) in question. That makes it very much a part of Ground Zero”.

My Conservative Republican Forum co-host and candidate for Florida State House, Steven Rosenblum, penned an excellent piece in which he (like many others) pointed out the real motivation behind the mosque as well as few inconvenient (for liberals anyway) truths:

In the Muslim faith building a mosque at the site of a military victory is a way of claiming that spot for Islam, the mosque becomes a marker to that victory. The original Mosque of Cordoba was built atop the ashes of a Christian church that a Muslim army had destroyed in the city of Andalusia around 711 A.D, as a way of marking the victory. So using the name Cordoba is not a coincidence and only makes this project’s intent even more questionable and its construction that much more objectionable.

The construction of this mosque, using this name, at this location would be akin to the Israelis attacking Mecca, destroying the Masjid al-Haram (the largest mosque in the world) and then building a synagogue in its place. The Islamic world would never tolerate such an act.

And while we’re discussing what the Islamic world would never tolerate, these “tolerant”, “sensitive” people would never allow a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue to be built anywhere in their countries, much less on or near hallowed ground. Make no mistake, Ground Zero is hallowed ground and should be treated as such. The only memorials or markers that should be built in or around the site of the World Trade Center should be to those that were murdered there, including the brave men and women of the New York City Police Department, the New York City Fire Department and the Port Authority Police of New York and New Jersey.

Amen to that.

And one of my very favorite Smart Girls, Andrea Tantaros takes it a step further by posing the question: Why won’t the Left defend Christians as fiercely as it defends Muslims? Please click on the link to read the entire piece, but here’s a sample of Andrea’s excellent analysis:

There has always been a double standard when it comes to understanding and explaining the Muslim religion verses Christianity.

While many Muslim countries ban women from voting, driving a car, and threaten to kill anyone who speaks of Christ within their borders, you rarely hear those on the left invoke sharp criticism or shake their finger in fury.

Instead, they save the attacks and their selective attention span for the random “Christian” who blocks an abortion clinic.

When the radical Islamic Fort Hood shooter claimed the life of twelve soldiers, the media dubbed him “troubled.”

A CNN.com article, along with many others, only identified him an “Army psychologist” and failed to make any reference to his ties to radical jihadism or make initial references to his religion – even after e-mails were found detailing his extremist views.

It’s no big deal when newspapers dub Christians “The American Taliban.” And it’s okay for Ted Turner to call Catholics with ashes on their head “Jesus freaks.” But God forbid you refer to the guys crashing the planes into building as Allah freaks.

I don’t understand why liberals, who enable and empower our enemies with their constant America-Christian-and-Jew bashing, refuse to get that their “tolerant” heads are just as valuable to a jihadist as any conservative one. While I am at it, the same goes for all of the 9/11 Truther freaks, the Ron Paul cultists and the Alex Jones devotees, all of whom align themselves with the radical left when it comes to matters of national security, Islamic terrorism and waging this war for our very survival.

Newsflash: Sharia Law and Global Jihad are stark realities we must confront and defeat, period. They exist not because of American foreign policy, but because they are steeped in centuries of hatred. This is a strident political ideology wrapping itself up in the cloak of religion and exploiting the over-sensitivity and hyper political correctness of modern western civilization. And liberals who support this mosque — along with 9/11 Truthers and the cult of Ron Paul — are useful idiots to their cause.

Let me expound upon Andrea’s salient point regarding the lone “Christian” abortion clinic bomber. Abortion is also the reason the alleged feminists among us remain silent in the face of the horrific abuses waged against Muslim women. They remain hypocritically mum about honor killings, stonings, the forced wearing of burquas, genital mutilation and other barbaric crimes because of their obsession with “a woman’s right to choose” (murder). Never mind that young girls in the Muslim world are married off to men three times their age, or that even here in the United States, Planned Parenthood covers up the rapes of minors, as proven by the intrepid young journalist, Lila Rose.

It’s all about abortion for these women, and since most of Christianity abhors the practice of killing the unborn (it’s still human life, no matter what stage it is in), they enthusiastically jump on the attack Christianity bandwagon, rather than do something truly courageous by condemning Islam’s oppression of women and the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

They are morally bankrupt.

Thank goodness, the hardworking men and women of New York are fighting back.

    “They exist not because of American foreign policy, but because they are steeped in centuries of hatred.”

    And this is exactly the problem. Muslims, as a whole, are no more “steeped in centuries of hatred” than any other religion. I could make the argument that Christianity is “steeped in centuries of hatred” too. Look at the Crusades, and the intolerance of and violence against Jews over the centuries, or the repeated attempts in the 18th-20ths centuries to “civilize” and “Christianize” the “barbaric” peoples of Africa and Asia. Literally millions of people have died at the hands of Christians who were looking to “spread the Word,” yet you seem to have no problem with that. I’m not arguing that Muslims are some enlightened group of people who we should emulate; I think they are generally a pretty scary bunch of people. But then again, I think that of all religious people; I’m strongly against all religions because they all do the same thing: indoctrinate a group of people in a backwards ideology that causes them to distrust and often hate anyone who believes differently than they do.

    With regards specifically to the issue of what causes Muslims to hate us: do you TRULY believe that the reason Islamic fundamentalism came about is because they’re jealous of our way of life or don’t approve of it? Can you honestly say that our foreign policy has NOTHING to do with this? How would you react if another country was meddling in America’s affairs for the last 50 years? How would you like it if someone tried to tell you how to live your life, how to spend your money, etc? You’d hate it, and I know you’d hate it, because you accuse Obama of trying to control your life and you hate him for it. Well guess what? The United States has been doing that to pretty much the entire world since the end of WWII. Don’t you think that would cause some ill will amongst other countries? Don’t you think other people get fed up with us bossing them around and acting like we’re perfect and we always know what’s right? No one likes a bully, yet that is exactly what we’ve become, and now we’re paying for it. 9/11 happened because our foreign policy has caused a good portion of the world, and specifically the Middle East, to hate us. The Muslims who try to kill us are doing exactly what you or I would do if the situation was reversed, and the sooner everyone in this country can understand that, the sooner we can solve the problem.

    • Brad

      Mike~Sorry, but ALL religions DO NOT ADVOCATE in their “bibles” to kill and murder, to lie to gain “trust” in order to eventually kill and murder! They do NOT treat women as cattle, much to the contrary, the ways you saw in the Bible Old Testament was changed with Jesus’ birth and a Promise fulfilled at the Cross. See, yes the violence in the Bible WAS fact, but then it changed too, Jesus has shown us a better way! Now, the Crusades and other actions committed by Christians,”in the name of Christ” is NOT the case nor was it in His name! Let’s be very clear…..the Bible DOES NOT expect murder for those who do not convert, nor does it condone the use of force to make them do so….anyone claiming it does including you Mike, is a fraud and a liar. Dealt with in the Judgement.
      The Quran and it’s follower of Islam DO PERMIT this and not but a few percentages of followers do speak out against it! The overall majority silently condone it and allow it by their INACTION! Please, to make ALL religions in the same mess called Islam is a shame and non-factual statement….I would like to get you basis of facts on the millions killed in the name of Christianity in the 18-20th centuries….if smallpox is your basis, THAT my friend came from just stepping ashore and coughing NOT from a Bible command!

    • brooke

      Oh here we go- another one that says that we are responsible for the 9/11 attacks, we brought it on ourselves, we are a bunch of bullies, blah blah …..how could you say Muslims are not steeped in hatred? They take planes and use them as weapons, kill innocent people- they hate us because they hate FREEDOM.

  2. Excellent article Daria. I concur completely.

  3. Shona Darress

    Excellent Daria!

    Mike I think that you lack basic knowledge of the teachings of the Quran and the differences between Islam and Christianity. The Crusades were fought in response to Islam over running then Christian countries. Almost the entire Middle East back then was Christian so don’t bring up the Crusades as an argument as it is so long ago as to be irrelevant! Yes some terrible things have been done in the name of Christianity throughout history, but go read your bible and understand that these were not the teachings of the Bible, but rather the teachings of powerful and ambitious men. Islam on the other hand actually teaches that Infidels are second class citizens and have three choices; to submit to Islam, live as a second class citizen or die! Christianity does not teach that anyone not a Christian should be killed and never has!

  4. Starla Brown

    Daria… Thanks for writing the truth. I hope others will open their eyes and minds and soon.

  5. Tom

    Mike Your History is at the very least Flawed however in this age of Government Schools teaching Revisionist History It is no surprise.
    First you Reference the Crusades. This is laughable my friend since the Crusades were Launched to Repel Muslims from the holy Land..(you forgot to include that in your post) Second the Crusades were not launched because the Christian God mandated it! (Something else you neglected to note.)
    Islam is not a Religion per say it is a way of life spanning Religious belief Government and Law
    These do not mix well with a country that already has a Government and Law in place.
    Even President Bush and Britain’s Prime Minister Blair have repeated this assertion, saying that Islam has been “hijacked” by a few violent fanatics. Is this true?
    Sadly it is not, for empirical, observable facts demonstrate beyond doubt that Islam at its founding is filled with violence—in the life of Muhammad himself and in the Quran itself.

    Hence, these Muslim apologists must stop misleading unsuspecting Westerners, and they must be honest about the heart of their religion, for once and for all.

    Verifiable? The readers are invited to look up each verse in the Quran in multiple translations, by visiting the website http://www.quranbrowser.com and typing in references, like so: 61:10-12. (61 is the chapter or sura, and 10-12 are the verses).

    Without even Mentioning Jihad (pronounced /dʒɪˈhɑːd/; Arabic: جهاد‎ [dʒiˈhæːd]), an Islamic term, we can go directly to Honor Killings and Stoning as well as Beating and raping of Women (which is commonplace) and part of the culture of Islam..
    You really should read up a bit before making yourself sound uneducated with a post like you have made here..
    The building of a Mosque at the 9/11 site is a declaration of victory in the USA against the Infidels.. Islamics throughout history have built Mosques at the site of great conquests.
    Read up a bit educate yourself to avoid making such juvenile kneejerk postings in the future Mike

  6. So….. not all Muslims are terrorists bent on the destruction of Americans. Thos countries you say we are bullying around (and I am not saying that the State department doesn’t put pressure on governments to help promote oour interests) seem to be more than willing to accept the billions of dollars in aid and funding we send them annually.

    But regarding the mosque specifically, if you look at the imam who is heading the building of this place wants sharia law in the US, and thinks that the USA was responsible for 9-11. I am all for free speech, but this site of honor for a great Muslim victory should not be built. I have no doubt that with that radical in charge, it will be a recruiting ground for more of the same.

    Europe is slowly waking up… we should too.

    Daria,

    Watching those innocent victims fall to their death again after 9 years was reliving the horrific day of Sept. 11, 2001!! I remember where I was .. I remember freezing in my tracks and was glued to the TV all day… I could not stop crying for the victims and their families!!! All those emotions came back to me as I watched the video all over again!! The fear all 3,000 people had as they knew that day would be their last on earth. All of the heroes that also would lose their lives as well. What is also so vivid in my mind is when the firefighters carried out the chaplain who went to see his Heavenly Father as well… this older Christian man went in to this burning building to try and do what he can… praying over and with strangers and fellow firefighters alike!!!!! This was the Chaplains last mission!!!!

    You see the Chaplain and I know that with all other “religions” you still have to DO something… with Christianity .. it is all ready DONE!!!!!

    Knowing that Islam the “religion” of hate removed 3,000 souls from AMERICA that day!!!! And knowing that Islam has taken over all over the middle east, africa, europe, parts of asia, and now Islam wants to continue to take over AMERICA.. this great nation that I was born and where I will breathe my last breath as well!!!!

    It is a true travesty Daria!!! I agree with you 1000%…….. keep up the good work my sister!

    Wake up AMERICA!!!

  8. On thing those use in support of building the Mosque, (including Pres. Obama) is our constitution and the 1st amendment. In citing the constitution, he is 100% correct (I wish he cite the constitution for other decisions)

    However, the implication of the name “Cordoba” is clear implication to Muslims worldwide that building this mosque is an end zone “victory dance”. If there were a referee, the yellow flag would have been thrown.

    And Mike, in regards to Muslims being jealous of us, may or may not apply. The shining success of the US is not lost on the impoverished members of Muslim countries. Their clerics use our success against us in much the same way, our current government attempts to divide our country. Obama diverts attention from his own failures by blaming “greedy” corporations.

    However, there is only one major impetus for Muslims. That is an aspiration of world domination. Do not confuse missionaries spreading Christianity with Muslims spreading not just their religion but the entirety Islam.

    By it’s very tenants, Islam is not just a religion but a vehicle to achieve that world domination and subjugation of anyone who does not accept both the religion and the civil authority of Islam.

    Yes, there have been some horrendous things done throughout history in the name of Christianity, but I can’t find too many Christians blowing themselves up on a regular basis as a way of spreading Christianity.

  9. Mike

    True, the Crusades were launched to “liberate” the Holy Land, but what exactly does that mean? Who is to say that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed to live there? What right did Christian Crusaders have in attempting to expel Muslims from there? The Crusades were most certainly launched in the name of God, and they resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of people for no good reason. Worst of all, most of the Crusading armies would get sidetracked pillaging other Christian territories (such as the sack of Constantinople) or raiding Jewish villages throughout Eastern Europe. You say the Quran preaches hatred and death, but I could find plenty of passages in the Bible that preach violence and hatred and intolerance too, or are interpreted as such by Christians today.

    Certainly, I agree that Islam is often practiced in a very barbaric way, namely through its oppression of women, and I’d be the first to vote for a ban on the burqa if it ever came up in this country. However, banning the construction of this mosque is different. The mosque itself is not directly harming anyone. You all are “offended” by it because it happens to be near Ground Zero, but I could claim to be offended if a church was being built next to my house. Yet it doesn’t give me the right to prevent its construction. The average Muslim in this country has no interest in murdering you or I or anyone else here, anymore than the average Christian desires to bomb an abortion clinic. However, in certain people, religious belief turns into violent fanaticism, and thus leads to actions such as bombing abortion clinics or blowing up the Twin Towers.

    As for Christians being responsible for the deaths of millions of people, nearly every colonization mission was, to one degree or another, based on the premise of “Christianizing savage peoples.” White European and American Christians were intent on “enlightening” supposedly-backwards people by bringing Christianity to them. However, in the process, either accidentally (through the spreading of diseases) or purposely (just plain slaughtering “savages” who were in the way), millions of people were killed in the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

    You talk about infidels being considering second-class citizens according to Islam, but how exactly is this any different than how white European and American Christians have treated other people throughout history? Evangelicals, for instance, are convinced that anyone who does accept Jesus Christ as his/her lord and savior is going to hell. Is that tolerance? Is that any different than the Islamic belief that non-Muslims are below Muslims? White Christians have sailed across the world attempting to convert “savage peoples” to Christianity. How is that any different than what Muslims have done and are doing today? Muslims want everyone to be Muslim, and Christians want everyone to be Christian. So what’s the difference here?

  10. Mike

    Also, as for the imam preaching that 9/11 is the fault of the United States, is he wrong? Are all of you honestly going to sit here and defend our foreign policy of the last half century? Can you honestly say that what we’ve done has not engendered a gigantic amount of hatred toward us in other countries? Most of the world does not like us…have you ever actually stopped to think about WHY?

  11. Clint

    Folks,
    I have never forgotten one moment of the events of that day..They are forever etched in my mind as I have made sure that I watched every possible video, every possible recording made from that fateful day!! Those that would try rewrite history such as the daily Kos who say 911 was no big deal or 911 truthers who try to blame America first and coddle the terrorists spit on the graves of all who died and their families of that day…Now they want to build a Victory Death Mosque at ground zero and hide behind the constitution…This is an outrage that must be stopped…If the Imam had any decency he would take the suggestions of Gov Patterson and move it somewhere else..But no!! This is about victory of radical islam and the death of 2996 innocent victims on 911….SAY YES TO DECENCY!!!
    SAY NO TO A VICTORY DEATH MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO!!!

  12. @Mike.
    “Evangelicals, for instance, are convinced that anyone who does accept Jesus Christ as his/her lord and savior is going to hell. Is that tolerance? Is that any different than the Islamic belief that non-Muslims are below Muslims?”

    Yes it’s very different. Evangelicals don’t strap bombs to themselves, or fly planes into buildings, to kill those that don’t choose accept Jesus Christ. They also don’t subjugate non-believers.

    Daria,

    You may want to add the following, the KORAN commands to kill infidels at the following verses:

    O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there are 20 steadfast men among you, they shall vanquish 200; and if there are a hundred, they shall rout a thousand unbelievers, for they are devoid of understanding. – 8:65
    It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land. – 8:67
    Allah will humble the unbelievers. Allah and His apostle are free from obligations to idol-worshipers. Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers. – 9:2-3
    When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. – 9:5
    Believers! Know that idolators are unclean. – 9:28
    Fight those who believe neither in Allah nor the Last Day, nor what has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the tribute and have been humbled. – 9:29 (another source: ) The unbelievers are impure and their abode is hell.

    Yes there is a difference Mike! All the incidents that you quoted Christians doing happened in the distant past. We no longer do these things. Christians try to convert people to Christianity to save them not to Subjugate them as Islam does. In Christianity we have free will. In Islam there is no freedom of thought. The very word Islam means to submit. A few clerics or imams tell you what to think and if you deviate from their understanding of the divine word of Allah the punishment can be death! Islam has not evolved or changed one little bit in the 1400 + years of its existence. Islam is not a religion it is a complete set of laws of living masquerading as a religion. I suggest that Christianity is just the opposite. I repeat that bad things were done through history in God’s and Jesus’s name, but that is history. We are no longer going around killing people. And Christians never killed themselves in the act of killing others in the name of God.

    Mohammed was an ignorant pagan with no real knowledge of religion and he pieced Islam together from what he knew of Judiasm and Christianity from the Jewish and Christian inhabitants of Arabia of his day. The Ka’abah in Mecca that they all flock to every year for the Haj was a rock that the pagans worshiped, a Moon God. He created his religion as a way to bind his warriors to him so that they wouldn’t leave and wander off. That is what the death penalty is for to terrify his own people into subjugation to his will!

    Forget what you learned in school, go back to the sources and learn all over again as you knowledge is woefully wrong.

    As for your question of what right did the West have in waging the Crusades on Islam? The answer is that these were Christian lands and the Muslims raided them and made the people convert or they were killed. The Christian countries wanted to take the Christian lands back. Were bad things done in their name? Of course there were. It is a very dark and violent time in history. But the Christians were not the only ones committing these crimes against humanity. Both side were equally as nasty. The difference is that we christians do not behave like that today, but given the chance the Muslims would and do!

  15. Stephanie Blaschke

    The first amendment allows our country to practice freedom of religion. The fact that this church has chosen to place this mosque in the twin towers area is a spit in Americas face. Mark my words. I am not opposed to people who practice Muslim but they must understand that people will continue to back lash because of “their” choice to place this there.
    If they respect America they should put it somewhere else. Obviously they dont!!!

  16. The United States and Christianity are under continual attack by radical Muslims and Liberals within our own country. We are constantly force-fed a mandate of tolerance, yet are not allowed to stand for GOD and the remembrance of our fallen without being called intolerant.

    We have a person in the White House who clearly postures his actions toward those who have killed our citizens and will do it again when opportunity comes. Yesterday, in an attempt to back-peddle his comments about the location of the mosque he discussed the “wisdom” of such a decision. This man is not qualified to discuss wisdom given his constant pandering to those with agendas counter to our nation’s beginnings.

    For too many years we’ve allowed liberals to throw out accusations of intolerance or racism like it’s an automatic “Get out of Jail Free” card. They march forward, we take a stand then their “card” is thrown out…we go home, grumble, click our heels and hope we’ll wake up to a happier day. That day won’t get here unless we take the stand and build a hedge against anti-American agendas.

    Back in the mid-60’s I read a book entitled, “The Naked Communist”. It was written by a guy from the Communist Party who came to the U.S. and spent time in jail. He had a list from the Communist Manifesto that detailed how American values were to be continually undermined. At the time of the reading, of the 50+ goals, nearly half were already accomplished. Kruschev said that America would one day remove the American flag willingly.

    When we allow a person filling the seat of the President to weaken our nation, when we allow those opposed to a free America to detour the facts by touting that we are the intolerant cause of our problems, then we come closer to the goals of our enemies.

    As a Christian I don’t feel that I have to be tolerant of another “Religion” that seeks to destroy our nation; particularly when they come wearing the veil of falsity. The radical Islamic agenda claims they come in peace, yet cannot live in peace among themselves. They claim they want to build bridges, yet take visible actions to conquer them.

    Placing a mosque at the site where so many of our innocent citizens died is no accident – it is a clear, in-your-face attempt to show domination much like Cordoba of the past. When given the opportunity to build a mosque in a other location, the Imam refused to discuss it. After all, WE are the intolerant right? Nope.

    This is an opportunity for us to open our eyes and pretend to have the guts that so many claim they have. November is coming. We need to get rid of those pandering to the destruction of America. We need to take a close look at business alliances associated with these groups, expose them and boycott them out of business.

    It is only money and power they understand and WE have the power to take it away.

    @Mike

    Better check your history, son. The Crusades were a RESPONSE to Muslim incursion into Europe.

    And while your brushing up, you’ll notice about ever 600-1000 years the civilized world has had to beat the Muslims back. This time is no different.

  18. Wolf

    “Islam has not evolved or changed one little bit in the 1400 + years of its existence.”

    This isn’t exactly true, by the 12th century Islam had actually evolved, and were doing all the things that evolved societies do, putting more emphasis on art, literature, music, architecture, science, etc. It’s anyone’s guess what made them do a U-turn and return to their 7th century roots. What Islam needs is a Reformation, and until the majority of the Muslim world rises up and says ” We do not approve of what is being done in the name of Allah and Islam” and then actually does something about it, i will continue to judge all Muslims harshly.

    The religion is Islam. The people that practice it are Muslim. I know it’s semantics, but if we are going to talk about, let’s be educated.
    A great book to read is Jihad in the West: Muslim Conquests from the 7th to the 21st Centuries by Paul Fregosi. This is not light reading…it’s akin to a history book. When you read it, you will understand that Mohammed was cast out of his village…he was furious. He wanted revenge. He made up his own religion to justify his actions. He got followers. In order to pacify them and keep them, he made up more of his religion to justify conquering, killing, raping, and pretty much doing anything he wanted…even marrying his 6 year old cousin, Aisha, and consummating his marriage to her when she was 9 years old. Sharia law says that a marriage can take place at the age of 1 with the consent of the father. Consummating the marriage can take place at any time, but if a Muslim wants to follow Mohammed’s lead, he can wait until the girl is 9 years old. Yes, this is NOT made up.

    Mike, have you read any history books on the Crusades? The Crusades were the result of the Muslims conquering Christian lands and imposing Sharia Law. The Christians didn’t “start it first” and so we’re now receiving payback. Sharia law is very strict and follows the teachings of the Qu’ran to the letter. Christians and anyone that was not a follower of Islam (a Muslim) was a dhimmi. They were not allowed to practice their religion, much less speak of it…death would be the punishment. Also, non-muslims were heavily taxed (check out our new healthcare plan…can we say dhimmitude?). The pope called for the Crusades to recapture the lands back from the Muslims. So…it would be faulty to say that anything that happens to day is partly due to “payback to the Christians for starting the Crusades.” This is just not true.

    The Qu’ran tells the Muslims that Allah will only be happy once the world is conquered and Islam is the one and only religion practiced. The Muslims are a very patient people…unlike the citizens of the U.S. We want a war over within weeks or months. The muslims are willing to take thousands of years to achieve their goal. They are off to a very excellent start. There are already Muslim courts set up in the U.S. for divorce, family issues, etc. Our president just passed his Obamacare bill which has put a tiny part of Sharia Law into effect….dhimmitude. The paying of taxes by non-muslims. There is a clause in the healthcare bill that we pay taxes if we choose to opt out of healthcare coverage. However, there is a loophole. Should it go deeply against your religious beliefs, not only will you be allowed to opt out of government run healthcare, but, you will also NOT be required to pay the tax for opting out. Wanna take a guess who this applies to? Health insurance goes against the Islamic faith because it is considered a form of gambling. Therefore, the Muslims will not be required to participate, AND they won’t have to pay a tax. Guess who will have to pay a tax for opting out? Non-Muslims. We had a Muslim president push this through…is this starting to make sense to anyone? Divide & conquer? It’s here. It’s happening already. If our citizens do not wake up soon, we will all be living under Sharia law. It is insidious, sneaky, and quiet. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. We should be very worried.
