Mosque near Ground Zero is intolerable

  • Follow Letters

A once-popular song included the line: "Do it to me one more time." This line is the mantra of President Obama and his elitists comrades who support the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero.

The twin towers of New York were the target of Muslim terrorists on 9-11 because they represented the power of the greatest representative republic in history; a nation whose people are predominately followers of the incarnate God, Jesus Christ; a bastion against the desire of Muslims to establish a worldwide caliphate. The attacks of 9-11 were the acts of terrorists, but can anyone forget the joyful celebration in the streets of the major Muslim countries? The "Great Satan" had been humiliated!

Islam, the marriage of dictatorial secular and religious ideologies, was developed by Mohammed about 600 A.D. These people want to construct a mosque near Ground Zero. Why this spot? Very simple! This mosque will be viewed worldwide by Muslims as a second 9-11. They will be dancing in the streets as they did nine years ago. The "Great Satan" has been humiliated again!

Nine people in New York had the power to stop construction of this mosque. Their elitist "tolerance" -- which translates to anyone but Jesus Christ -- prevailed over the wishes and wisdom of the people. Does anyone with half a brain believe these elitists would have been similarly tolerant of a Pentecostal or Southern Baptist church at the same location? A Greek Orthodox Church destroyed on 9-11 has yet to be rebuilt because of bureaucratic interference!

Speaking before a group of Muslims recently, Obama put his stamp of approval on the mosque at Ground Zero. Strange isn't it?

As an American, the reaction to this from the Right has been extremely disappointing.

This horse needs to be beat daily until it is actually dead.

Every politician supporting this location (or one similarly close) needs to be removed from office. Only then will the voice of the voter be heard.

I am against this Mosque as much as anyone else but if it is stopped on anything other than completely legal grounds then we trample our own Constitution in the process.

Of course, it would be nice if all the unions boycotted it. It would be hard to build without the unions workers such as electricians, plumbers, etc.

This is not a 'right" thing.

This is not a 'right" thing. Millions of Americans are against this including N.Y. Gov Patterson, Democrat.
Never mind... Does every issue have to be turned into a political event. In matters of this nature can't we all be loyal Americans.

OUTSIDERS should never be allowed to come into our country and dictate to us. Where in the heck are our backbones. Folks in this country fight each other, kill each other, and have no sense of decency. Ok..I'm off my tea box.

Where does Mr. Baker get the idea that there were "joyful celebration in the streets of the major Muslim countries" after September 11, 2001? Why does the ACES print letter with such falsehoods?

How does Mr. Baker know that "[t]his mosque will be viewed worldwide by Muslims as a second 9-11?" Has he conducted a poll? Is he in direct contact with some significant fraction of the world's more than 1 billion Muslims?

afadel. I can't read minds (others on here can, btw) but I would guess that he is basing his comments on history. We have no reason to think the people who celebrated before has changed their ways.
You know, can't change their spots.

@maggiemae, what documentary evidence do you have that a significant number of Muslims celebrated the attacks of September 11, 2001?

There actually has been research which contradicts Mr. Baker's assertions.

The continuation of this kind

The continuation of this kind of hate and bigotry shame many of our nation's conservatives. By comparison, the KKK conducted (and, although reduced, still conducts) its hateful activities in the name of our Lord. Should we therefore oppose the construction of a church near a lynching field? Of course not. Most Muslims are peaceful, sincere, and law-abiding. The Muslim sect in question is actually pacifist.

Afadel In the aftermath of

Afadel In the aftermath of 9/11 western news organizations taped several videos of street celebrations in Muslims countrys, including Syria,Iran, Egypt and Gaza. I saw the video feeds from Syria and Gaza for myself. As a person of The Book ,I consider Muslims and Jews to be my brothers, that we share a common belief,that we have more in common than other groups.The belief in the God of the Bible.

LOL, afadel, on your 7:18am

LOL, afadel, on your 7:18am post. Were you in this country on the 9-11 mentioned? Well, I was. For several days after the attack, my television showed live shots from all over the world, where ever the Muslim gather for ... whatever reason. In virtually every one shown, the streets were full of screaming and celebrating Islamists, burning U.S. flags and effigies and screaming a high pitched bird sound common among the culture.
You see, the choreographed press didn't realize they were to support the attack or not speak of it, so they showed many dozens of views of the celebrating religion of peace. I'm willing to bet Mr. Baker's television showed similar scenes and that's possibly where he got his idea of celebration. These pictures weren't actually a poll, since exact numbers weren't gathered, but they made it pretty clear that the devastation in NYC was very popular with the Muslim culture.

that's interesting, afadal,

that's interesting, afadal, about mr. baker having his facts wrong. when jill peterson wrote a letter to the editor, the chronicle went over it with a fine tooth comb and we had to talk on the phone repeatedly because they were so concerned about anything being possibly wrong. but that was concerning troy davis and his possible innocence and the georgia's disinterest in his possible innocence and eagerness to execute him. looks like that's still the plan, as a matter of fact. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2010/0824/Death-row-inmate-Troy-Dav...

As the very reliable Rhetor states, there's probably some "...peaceful, sincere, and law-abiding..." Islamists somewhere that don't feel that way, but they seem to stay hidden from the cameras and newsmen.

As an FYI, there is a Muslim holiday coming up around September 11, 2010. It has nothing to do with the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Thanks for the "heads up"

Thanks for the "heads up" about the holiday, Mr. Fadel. It seems like there is a religious holiday of some kind every couple of weeks. I suppose we'll need to wait for the September 11, 2011 holiday to celebrate the 10th anniversary.
