Adding Insult to Dhimmitry: Funding the Ground Zero Mosque

Here on the eve of the 10th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation is considering a $5 million federal grant to Park 51, the official project name of the Ground Zero Mosque.  Normally, you would think the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights would apply – the government shall make no laws respecting religion and all that.

But according to the their grant application, they should be allotted the money in order  to “fund social service programs for all the residents of Lower Manhattan such as domestic violence prevention, Arabic and other foreign language classes, programs and services for homeless veterans, two multi-cultural art exhibits and immigration services.”

Among the Ground Zero mosque’s offerings are courses in Shariah Law.  Among Shariah Law’s notable dictates are:  death by stoning for adultery, child marriage, proscription of independent speech, writing, printing and broadcasting, decriminalization of abuse of women, no rights for wives in divorce, as well as requiring all Muslims to wage Jihad against non-believers and commit violence to achieve its goals.

It’s no wonder they want to build the mosque at Ground Zero, as they have done with every city they’ve conquered throughout their long history.  Americans have been protesting this mosque since it was first proposed.  The building it will be replacing was destroyed on September 11th when a piece of the landing gear tore through the roof right down to the basement.

Manhattanites have told us to mind our own business.  But now that they want federal funds to build this outrageous insult to the American people, to those in the buildings who survived, and to the family members of those who didn’t, it is our business.

If we don’t want that mosque built, we certainly don’t want our hard-earned tax dollars paying for it.  We don’t want to hear any politically correct, mediating excuses about first amendment rights.  We don’t want to hear how we should be more diverse and inclusive.  We shouldn’t be told to “get over” September 11th, or that somehow America deserved the attacks.  Above all, we shouldn’t be told we don’t understand the true, peaceful nature of Islam, or that we’re offending those peaceful Muslims by objecting to the building of, and worse, the bank-rolling of, this mosque.

The Liberals speak of right-wing “hatred.”  Find a picture of 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta.  Take a good, hard look.  Then tell us about “hatred.”  Don’t be at all surprised if the Ground Zero mosque builds a marble statue of him in honor of the September 11th attacks which Manhattanites will be encourage – and will flock – to pay homage to.

And why not?  There’s a statue of murderer Che Guavera in New York City.  Why wouldn't Lower Manhattan honor the "hero" of 9/11?  They won't allow the true heroes - the 9/11 Firs Responders - to speak at or even attend this Sunday's ceremony.  Maybe they could broadcast a speech by KSM from his villa at Guantanamo.

A National Review columnist based in New York wrote about her kids growing up in the "Frozen Zone."  When another child asked her son why there were so many barricades, he answered, "Well, this is New York."

Why is there going to be a Ground Zero Mosque?  Well, because this is New York.
