On 6 June, thousands of protesters showed up to speak out against the planned muslim jihad monument in New York City. The MSM ignored it.
Despite weather forecasts of thunderstorms and rain, the skies were clear and beautiful — but not as beautiful as this patriotic crowd of great Americans and Europeans. It was a real cross section of humanity ………. every race, creed, color and religion were out in all their glory.
Robert and I were expecting 500; imagine our wonder when close to 5,000 showed up. Some estimates ranged as high as 10,000. This is just the beginning. We are going to sue to designate the Burlington building a war memorial. There is a large piece of an airplane in that building. That is a war memorial. Instead of a mega mosque at ground zero, let’s build a 911 war memorial to the victims. The current plan for a 911 museum is several floors underground, like a dungeon. And the mosque plan calls for the mosque to be on the top floor, looking down triumphantly on the burial ground of Ground Zero.
I don’t think so. The Burlington building must be a war memorial, an historic landmark. We will sue to make that happen. We will protest again in September and stage sit-ins in front of the mosque should they try to break ground. Three thousand good and decent Americans did not die in vain.

Bloomberg showed his cowardice, once again.
True to form, Bloomberg is a pussy.
The Mayor of New York backs the fifteen-story mega-mosque that is slated to be built near Ground Zero. He said Friday: “I think it’s fair to say if somebody was going to try, on that piece of property, to build a church or a synagogue, nobody would be yelling and screaming. And the fact of the matter is that Muslims have a right to do it, too.” The Mayor is wrong. This mosque is not about freedom of religion. It’s about Islamic supremacism.
Angry relatives of 9/11 victims last night clashed with supporters of a planned mosque near Ground Zero at a raucous community-board hearing in Manhattan.
After four hours of public debate, members of Community Board 1 finally voted 29-1 in support of the project. Nine members abstained, arguing that they wanted to table the issue and vote at a later date.
The board has no official say over whether the estimated $100 million mosque and community center gets built. But the panel’s support, or lack of it, is considered important in influencing public opinion.
Somehow I don’t think this panel’s decision will influence the public opinion in a positive way. Just a hunch.
……Holding up photos of loved ones killed in the Twin Towers and carrying signs such as, “Honor 3,000, 9/11 — No mosque!” opponents of the proposed Cordoba House on Park Place called the plan an insult to the terror-attack victims.
“That is a burial ground,” said retired FDNY Deputy Chief Al Santora, referring to the fact that victims’ remains were scattered for blocks.
Santora’s 23-year-old son, Christopher, was the youngest firefighter to die that day.
“I do have a problem with having a mosque on top of the site where [terrorists] can gloat about what they did,” said Santora, with his wife, Maureen, by his side.
About 150 people attended the emotional Greenwich Street meeting, were some shouted down others as they took their turns.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the head of the Cordoba Institute, which is in charge of the project, insisted that the site would help “bridge the great divide” between Muslims and the rest of America.
“We are Americans, we are Muslim Americans,” Rauf said. “Many of us were born in the United States. We have no higher aspirations than to bring up our children in peace and harmony in this country.”
But the crowd got ugly when he added, “Freedom of assembly is the right of all Americans.”
Amid boos, one woman shouted, “Not at the World Trade Center!”
Way to go, New York. It only took you about nine years to forget “never forget”.
What’s next? An annual Islam parade on September 11th, complete with floats commemorating the glorious muslim martyrs in the attacks? That so-called “cultural center” will be just another recruiting station for muslim terrorists. And the next planned attack on NYC.
Notice how a 15 story mosque will be built in less than two years, yet construction of the new World Trade Center hasn’t shown any real signs of progress? The new terrorist Mecca is being financed in part, by the rich ragheads in the Middle Eastern Islamic nation states:
(Imam Feisal Abdul) Rauf and (Daisy) Kahn (executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement) have not stated who will fund the $100 million construction, or how they will pay to sustain the center financially in future years.
……They are expected to reveal the final design and other details for the Islamic center next year on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
“They have been extremely dodgy on where the funds will come from.” said Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy in Phoenix.
Past financial supporters of the group include the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Deak Family Foundation, and the William & Mary Greve Foundation, according to the New York Post.
Funding has also come from the Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s Kingdom Foundation, the government of Qatar and the World Economic Forum…
By the way, the “Cordoba” name is no accident. Cordoba was the beachhead that Islamic jihadists established as a base in Spain. From there, they conquered most of the rest of Spain and then invaded France.
When the Dhimmi Anointed One got into the White House, our national security and approach to this war took a nosedive. The enemy is HERE. Every muslim organization should be monitored and scrutinized. They’re taking advantage of our weakened foreign and domestic policies. They’re exploiting the pussified sycophants (like the ones in NYC) who think that holding hands with Islamic swine and singing Kumbaya will make that ‘little boo boo’ we got on 9/11 all better; like mommy kissing your skinned knee. If you don’t think muslims, enmasse, want us all dead, you haven’t paid attention. Islam is diametrically opposed to everything in Western civilization. Everything. Their vision of a world Caliphate hasn’t changed since their misogynist pedophile prophet wrote the Koran in 692AD. I don’t care if their feelings get hurt. Tough shit. We need to put America’s interests first. That includes deporting every muslim that declares themselves part of the new jihad.
I’ve said this before, it bears repeating: Had I the power, 3/4ths of the Middle East would have been neutron-bombed to zero population on 12 September 2001. THAT is how you deal with a “jihad”.
