Petition to Stop the Ground Zero Mega-Mosque: Sign It Now!

Alert citizens of England, where there is a large and powerful population of Muslims, were able to end the construction of a mega-mosque in East London, so Americans better get moving to put a stop to the planned Ground Zero mega-mosque which its developers would like to open on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

For years, an Islamist group in England actively worked toward the construction of a mega-mosque capable of holding 70,000 people next door to another project, the 2012 London Olympics stadium. (Which, for some reason, brings to my mind that an Islamist group, Black September, slaughtered a group of innocent Israeli athletes and their coaches at the Munich Summer Olympics in 1972.) But "determined, sustained, and intelligent opposition" halted this "Islamist project."

No need to explain why Islamists would be wanting to open a mega-mosque at Ground Zero on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Nevertheless, the project's spokesperson, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, has been going around acting like building a mega-mosque in a building damaged during the 9/11 attack is the most normal, most patriotic, and most conciliatory act imaginable, and that coming up with the 4.85 million in cash that records show the imam paid for the land is no big deal. The reality:
Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has blamed the West, rather than Islamic jihadists, for terrorism on several occasions. He has said, according to Australia's Sun-Herald, that "the U.S. and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end." On another occasion he said that "Western active involvement in shaping the internal affairs of Islamic societies have contributed to the creation of terrorism done in the name of Islam."

Abdul Rauf has also called Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams' endorsement of the implementation of Sharia courts in Britain "forward thinking" - despite Sharia's denial of basic freedoms including the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights of all people before the law.
Interested New Yorkers will no doubt want to examine the activities of the developers of the mosque to make sure that the concerned parties have applied each and every jot and tittle precisely where it was supposed to be placed, in the prescribed time frames, and that no legal procedures by any of the developers, mystery funders, or municipal authorities or staff members have been overlooked. Red tape can be hell to get through when all kinds of interested bystanders are looking over everyone's shoulders 24/7. And in this case . . . .

Pamela Geller has provided a petition for signing, as well as contact information to let the numbskulls who allowed this project get this far know what you think (well, not exactly what you think, since she asks that you BE POLITE):

The human rights group Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) will be hosting a rally at Ground Zero on June 6 at noon to protest construction of the mosque. You can join SIOA's Facebook page here.
We chose June 6 as the rally date," Geller explained, "because it's D-Day. In 1944, Americans acted against the evil of Nazism. Now it is time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.

  1. Great Post! We must stop this tragedy from happening. This is a slap in the face to all who died on 9/11. This ticks me off so bad. Signing petition right now.
