Adding Insult To Insult

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf the smiling face of jihadImam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his co-conspirator, Sharif El-Gamal aren’t satisfied with forcing the insult of Park 51 nee Cordoba House, aka the Ground Zero Mosque, upon New York and America at large; now they demand that the American taxpayers help fund what the vast majority consider an abomination.

The insults to America just keep spewing from these “moderate” Muslims.

Most Americans are firmly against any Muslim showpiece edifice being constructed anywhere near Ground Zero but admit that it would be wrong to use the law to prevent these Muslims from building it. Rather than take this to heart and be grateful for the unearned tolerance that Americans are willing to show the brothers and sisters of our enemies, these creatures want Americans to pay for the “privilege” of their insults and gloating mockery.

From the Daily Beast:

Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from ground zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

~*~

The application was submitted under a community and cultural enhancement grant program administered by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC), which oversaw the $20 billion in federal aid allocated in the wake of 9/11 and is currently doling out millions in remaining taxpayer funds for community development. The redevelopment board declined to comment on the application (as did officials from Park51), citing the continuing and confidential process of determining the grant winners.

While news of the application has not previously been made public, developer Sharif El-Gamal outlined it in closed-door meetings, according to two individuals he spoke with directly.

Both Muslims and their dhimmi apologists will stridently claim that applying for a federal grant is not demanding $5 million from the American people. This is nothing, of course, but another example of taqiyyah, the Islamic practice of lying to unbelievers.

Be assured that, if they’re denied their “request” they, with the always eager aid of the Muslim Brotherhood’s front group in the US, CAIR, will launch a paper jihad in the courts, tying up the available grant funding and shutting down the entirety of the Lower Manhattan Community and Cultural Enhancement Program until they get the $5 million plus whatever “damages” they could manage to extort through New York’s uber-Liberal civil courts system.

Gods above and below! Given his track record, Obama would probably have his boy, Attorney General Holder lend them material aid and comfort in their attempt.

At a bare minimum Obama would have Holder file an amicus curiae brief on their behalf, thereby tacitly threatening federal reprisal if his preferred decision isn’t reached.

Adding insult to insult to grievous injury is all these Muslim vermin are doing. It’s the best that we can expect from the Muslims. It must always be remembered that Moderate Muslims differ from their Extremists only in methodology and personal courage. The Moderate Muslims will wage jihad against America via paper terrorism and suborning the courts system, whereas the Extremists prefer direct violence.

Jihad bi-al-Lisan and Jihad bi-al-Qalam, Jihad al-yad, and the bloody Jihad as-sayf are all the same; they’re all Jihad, the Muslim holy war to create the Khalifat for the Mahdi to rule.

A Fit Comparison

The Liberals are often wont to compare Timothy McVeigh’s terrorist attack with the Muslim Terrorist attacks of 9/11. These Liberals always willfully ignore the fact that McVeigh’s Oklahoma City Bombing was purely politically motivated and the simple fact that McVeigh was a self-avowed Agnostic.

The same thing cannot be truthfully said for the jihadis of 9/11 who committed their heinous atrocities in the name of Islam.

Yet, in a strange twist of fate or an example of Divine Provenance, there is a fit comparison between Timothy McVeigh and the Muslim Terrorists and their various overt and/or tacit supporters. It is however a comparison that doesn’t manifest itself until long after the respective acts of terror.

In excerpts of letters published Sunday in his hometown newspaper, The Buffalo News, in New York state, McVeigh defended the bombing as a “legit tactic,” an act of war against what he considers an overbearing federal government.

McVeigh also revealed that at one time he considered having his ashes scattered at the Oklahoma City bombing memorial, but eventually decided against it.

“That would be too vengeful, too raw, cold. It’s not in me,” he said in a letter.

Chambers said that the final destination of McVeigh’s remains would remain privileged forever.

Timothy McVeigh Dead
CNN, June 11, 2001

Timothy McVeigh, the single worst, most destructive, and unrepentant domestic terrorist that America has ever had the misfortune of producing didn’t have it in him to add insult to grievous injury by asking for his ashes to be scattered over the remains of the site of his terror attack.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf the smiling face of jihadSadly, but not too shockingly, the same sense of place and restraint does not seem to present in the heart and mind of Cordoba House / Park 51’s Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf. He does seem to “have it in him” to outrage, insult, and offend the vast majority of Americans by building a Islamic Center / Mosque a few hundred yards away from Ground Zero where thousands of Americans died at the hands of Muslim Terrorists.

And remember always that Imam Feisal is touted as a Moderate Muslim and America’s friend…

Yes, this at least seems a true and fit comparison between the Oklahoma City Bombing and the 9/11 Terror Attacks. It also points out what may be the single largest differentiator between America and the Muslim World; the very worst that America can produce is still more humane – more human – than what is considered one of the best of Islam.

No Cordoba House!

Cordoba House - Now Called Park 51There will be no vile “Cordoba House” built overlooking Ground Zero, nor will there be a Muslim Cultural Center being opened at Ground Zero on 9/11, and there may not be a masjid built there overlooking and commemorating the Islamic terror attack upon the World Trade Center.

Some things have changed and these particular atrocities are not going to happen – at least not exactly as originally planned.

Some things have changed, arguments and responses have shifted, and some things never actually were in the first place it seems.

No Cordoba House

The Muslim’s building will no longer be named Cordoba House, which every Islamist in the world recognize as a symbol of Islamic conquest. It will be called The Community Center At Park 51 or just Park 51.

We are calling it Park 51 because of the backlash to the name Cordoba House. It will be a place open to all New Yorkers and that is a very New York name.

— Sharif Gamal
Developer for Park 51

Changing the name of the Islamic Center from Cordoba House to something far less insulting and inflammatory is a big step in the right direction. It will not so easily embolden the jihadis and will not be such a constant left-handed slap in the face to Americans.

No 9/11 Attack Anniversary

Park 51 will also not be opening on September 11, 2011. It will them 18 months to three years to come up with the $100-$150 million price tag for the facility assuming no further delays or hurdles. It’s conceivable that it might open on some future 9/11, but I’m finding that more and more unlikely as things shift and Americans make their voices heard.

The whole idea that this center would open on 9/11/11 seems to have been predicated upon a misunderstanding of something said back in early May by Daisy Khan, the executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and a board member of the Cordoba Initiative, the two organizations sponsoring the Islamic project.

The Muslim organizations plan to announce the groundbreaking later this year, possibly to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the attacks, Khan said. It could take up to three years to build the Cordoba House; the groups currently have no funds for the project but plan to start raising money, she said.

A groundbreaking ceremony on 9/11 would be an insult to Americans but not nearly so much of one as an opening ceremony. It was also only a possibility, one likely to be discounted now from the sound of things.

Funny how Liberals are now claiming that Newscorp lied about it opening on 9/11/11 when all their Leftist MSM outlets agreed that such was the planned opening date as well and defended it.

Are they implying that the NY Times, ABC, CBS, CNN and a host of other left-wing, Liberal propaganda outlets get their facts from Fox News and the New York Post as well?

Any or all of those media outlets could have “refudiated” it. 😉

Not doing anything involving Park 51, whether breaking ground or opening its doors on the anniversary of the jihadis’ terrorist attack on NYC would definitely be the best bet for all concerned.

A Mosque or Not?

The matter of whether or not Park 51 will contain a masjid – what most would call a mosque – is somewhat more clouded and “nuanced.” The Park 51 website claims that the Muslim Center will contain a masjid but Daisy Khan demurred on August 13, 2010.

The top two floors would house a domed space for prayers. We insist on calling it a prayer space and not a mosque, because you can use a prayer space for activities apart from prayer. You cant stop anyone who is a Muslim despite his religious ideology from entering the mosque and staying there, said Imam Raufs wife and partner, Daisy Khan, who runs the American Society for Muslim Advancement, from an office housed on the Upper West Sides famed Riverside Church. With a prayer space, we can control who gets to use it.

It’s really anyone’s guess at this point whether or not Park 51 will house a masjid or just unconsecrated prayer space, but it seems that Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf has recognized his error in judgment and opted for the latter, less offensive and less dangerous option.

~*~

My take on these developments in the Ground Zero Mosque / Cordoba House row is quite simple. Since my complaints were based upon the combination of name, place, and timing, I no longer have any particular cause for grievance or reason to take issue with Sharif Gamal’s and Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf’s plans to build a Muslim community center in lower Manhattan – even if it is quite near Ground Zero. Without being name Cordoba and being opened on an anniversary of the 9/11 attack it’s just another building without particular symbolism.

Do I like it? No! I strongly dislike the ever-growing number of Muslims choosing to congregate at and around Ground Zero since it strikes me as too reminiscent of a dark hajj.

I do, however, actually approve of and like Gamal’s, Imam Feisal’s and Daisy Khan’s responses to Americans’ complaints. They, unlike either Bloomberg or Obama, chose an actually moderate and unifying – or at least not further divisive – path to resolution of the problem instead of fanning the flames.

~*~

And a H/T to Moe, who provided me the impetus to sift through several months of reports in order to get a straight story about the center’s intended opening date.

Ground Zero Analogy

There are whole hosts of Liberals deriding Americans’ complaints about the Muslims trying to build the Ground Zero Mosque. They are currently using every tactic that they can think of to defend the Muslims and attack Americans either out of unreasoning hatred of all things Americans, their own dhimmitude, or some unwholesome crossbreeding of the two flaws.

I have a simple question for these so-called defenders of tolerance:

Would any of you defend the “right” of the Klu Klux Klan to build a meeting hall near either end of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL, name it the Rosewood Center, and open it on April 4?

— jonolan

Somehow I doubt that many of these Liberals’ “tolerance” extends to blatant acts of provocation that aren’t perpetrated by Muslims and the “traditional minorities populations.”

If you’re an adult, were raised in America, and you don’t understand the references to Edmund Pettus Bridge, Rosewood, or April 4 just go away; go far, far away – you don’t belong here.

Liberals and their minority tenants would do anything and everything in the power to prevent the KKK from opening a meeting hall under the circumstances I’ve outlined and they’d be right to do; such an act as I outlined would be an affront, a direct provocation, and an unmitigated abomination in the eyes of the Gods and all right-thinking people of America.

Why There? Why Build A Mosque At Ground Zero Other Than To Glorify Muslim Terrorism?

Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf’s plot to build the Ground Zero Mosque, name it after the centerpiece of the Muslims’ conquest and rape of Andalusia, and open it on the anniversary of the worst Islamic terrorist attack in American history is the same thing, an affront, a direct provocation, and an unmitigated abomination in the eyes of the Gods and all right-thinking people of America. Every American is right to do anything and everything in the power to prevent it from coming into existence.

Perhaps some would understand better if the analogy was kept is purely Islamist terms:

Would any of you defend the “right” of the Serbian Orthodox Church to build a cathedral in Srebrenica or would you demand that the UN stop such a thing? Would you complain if the Muslims responded with violence to the attempt?

— jonolan

Until the Liberals accept and admit that they are not worth listening to and should never be allowed to affect the American consciousness. They are as biased and bigoted as they stridently claim Americans are and will remain that way until they finally understand that an abomination is an abomination no matter who the victims are.

Cordoba House 1.0

The Muslims cabal known as the Cordoba Initiative, fronted for by imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf, plans to build a 13 story Muslim “cultural center” which includes a masjid in lower Manhattan just two blocks from- and overlooking Ground Zero.

These Muslims claim that such an act is meant to be a means of “building bridges” between Muslims and Americans. Yet every single detail of their plan gives lie to that perfidious assertion and shows that the Cordoba House is meant to glorify the Jihad and mock America.

They’re not even particularly subtle about it, though most Americans have been kept ignorant enough that it’s not too surprising that these Muslims thought no one would notice. The Cordoba House is being built by Feisal Abdul-Rauf’s Cordoba Initiative. The key word here being, “Cordoba,” the seat of Muslim rule during their rape of Spain.

Why Cordoba House?

A supposedly "American" Muslim family consoling their jihadi child after a training accident.When the Muslim hordes swarmed out of North Africa and completed their rape of Andalusia the conquered people were forced to convert to Islam or be murdered. The conquering beasts’ Emir, Abd ar-Rahman I commandeered the Christian church of St. Vincent in Cordoba in 784 AD, desecrated it, and converted it into a masjid (mosque).

The rabidly theocratic Muslims, as they have always done or attempted to do, used this masjid as a symbol of their conquest and subjugation of the conquered people. Abd ar-Rahman I actually used the masjid – originally named Aljama Mosque after one of his “wives” – as an adjunct to palace.

The Great Mosque of Cordoba

In Cordoba, the capital of what the Muslims called Al-Andalus in their native tongue , the “Great Mosque” was seen as the heart and central focus of the capital. It remained that way until 1236 AD, when Crdoba was liberated from the Muslim filth by King Ferdinand III of Castile and the mosque was returned back into a Christian church.

It is now once again a Roman Catholic cathedral and is called the Catedral de Nuestra Seora de la Asuncin (English: Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption).

Such is a very brief history of the masjid in Cordoba, Spain – Cordoba House 1.0 if you will.

~*~

The conquest and ensuing rape and enslavement of much of Spain is still a “glorious” memory for Muslims and the “Great Mosque of Cordoba” is still an important symbol for their various tribes and far-flung nests. Even to this very day Muslims are more than willing to attack, maim, and gleefully kill anyone who prevents them from violating the sanctity of the cathedral in order mouth their prayers to Allah and His Pedophile Prophet.

No, despite any mendacious contrary claims, their naming of this “cultural center” with its attendant masjid overlooking the site of Islam’s greatest single attack upon America the Cordoba House cannot be seen by any American as anything other than part of their jihad against the Civilized World because it is ridiculous to believe that Imam Feisal isn’t well-versed in Islamic history; he and his nest of vermin just hope and pray that Americans are.

This Is What Imam Feisal Wants To Commemorate and Glorify

If nothing else, the fact that these vermin want to locate this abomination at Ground Zero and open their nest on 9/11 2011 should make it clear to anyone that their naming of it Cordoba House has nothing relating to peaceful coexistence between humanity and Muslims other than the peace of submission, i.e., Islam.
