The Case Against The Ground Zero Mosque

I’ve been pretty apolitical lately, but I can not let this subject pass without comment. The Ground Zero Mosque is wrong; it is grotesque. My viewpoint can best be summed up by Debra Burlingame, co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America and the sister of hijacked American Airlines flight 77 pilot Charles Burlingame:

Muslims came to America nine years ago, brutally murdered 3,000 men, women and children in the name of Allah, and yet the burden is on us, their families, their widows and children, to exhibit tolerance for Muslim insensitivity. Shame on the politicians, whose moral vanity knows no boundaries. We will fight this.

Exactly. The burden to prove we are cool with Muslims is one we should not undertake. Muslims should be outraged over this as well – they died on 9/11 too. This mosque is intolerable.

John Hawkins has created a round up of quotes against the Ground Zero Mosque. It is well worth the read.

  1. The tradition in Islam is to build monuments upon the site of their triumphs, or to take over the high places of their conquered foes for their own. The Hagia Sophia comes to mind, as does the mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

    If this were a genuine outreach on behalf of Muslims to convince us they weren’t all terrorists, it would behoove them not to act like they were celebrating a victory in battle over New Yorkers, even if it were only for appearance’s sake.

    This whole business is rather like the brother of a thief going on television dressed in a ski mask, dark track suit, and leather gloves, all to reassure us that he’s NOTHING like his brother, and he’d be more than happy to prove it by watching the house for us while we’re out of state.

    The same could be said about Tim McVeigh, yet nobody is concerned about churches being built around Oklahoma City.
    Americans should be more worried about what the CIA describes as blowback which caused the innocent 9/11 victims to be attacked by terrorists.
