About the Ground Zero Victory Mosque: Faces of Sorrow and Resolve

Patriot and extraordinary photo journalist, el Marco, who blogs at Looking at the Left, posted these powerful images at Part II of his photo essay on the "multi-ethnic, multi-racial coalition of Americans opposed to Islamic violence and intolerance [who] rallied at the site of the World Trade Center in New York City" this past June.

Below "are parents and spouses of firefighters killed on 9/11. The rally took place just a minute’s walk from Ladder 10 Firehouse, where their loved ones were stationed for duty that terrible day. Ladder 10 lost seven firefighters.":

As el Marco pointed out, the "9/11 families were joined by immigrants from India, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Africa, Iran and Europe to show opposition to the construction of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero." He posted this video, which captures some of their observations:

I think it is quite clear that the people captured in these images will never forget and will never give in.

El Marco has just posted Part I of his latest photo-essay,  "Islamic Triumphalism: Cruel Lessons From History for New York City." In it, el Marco records some of his experiences as a tourist observing the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa, two mosques built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the holiest site of Judaism, where, "in general," el Marco reports,"Jews are not permitted to ascend."
