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.
