Anti-Mosque Ads To Run On NYC Buses After All

August 16, 2010 by  

Anti-mosque ads to run on NYC buses after allA few days after the American Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop Islamization of America filed a lawsuit against New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) for refusing to run an ad campaign protesting the construction of an Islamic center in lower Manhattan, the agency has agreed to put up the posters.

The two organizations alleged that the MTA and its advertising agency violated free speech rights by rejecting the proposal to run posters that included images of one of the hijacked 9/11 planes alongside pictures of the proposed mosque. The agencies’ argument was that they improperly suggested a link between the mosque and Islamic terrorism.

David Yerushalmi, who acts as counsel to the plaintiffs, stated that the reversal was not only a victory for the First Amendment rights, but also “against the Bloomberg-style bullying meant to shut down full-throated public debate over the connection between the existential jihad threat this country faces and Islamic terrorists who engage in both violent and stealth jihad to impose Shariah on the infidel."

However, the decision to run the ads on New York buses was criticized by The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which said they are sponsored by “groups and individuals with long histories of promoting anti-Islam hate.”ADNFCR-1961-ID-19923906-ADNFCR

    Muslims, if they had a better sense of world affairs, would know better than claim that this anti-mosque ad is an idea put forth by people who have a long history of hate.
    You don’t have to be a scholar of world religions to know that Muslims have a long history of hatred. How can anyone profess to be a servant of God, when it is common in the Holy Land for children to be taught to HATE people? Mayor Bloomberg, in particular, is bending over like a contortionist to make himself look like a mind-numbed robot of modern era political correctness.
    Let the ads run their course. And, start building synagogues next to mosques all over the world. Let us see if the love of God is real, or if it’s just another manifestation of political correctness and
    hidden agendas. People, it’s not what you SAY, it’s what you DO.

    • Bubba

      The “Holy Land” was always full of HATE.

      • http://personalliberty.com Tracie

        The ‘Holy Land’ (Israel), is God’s chosen land. When Jesus splits the eastern sky at his return…it will be on the Mount of Olives. Israelites are God’s chosen people.
        Be careful what you say about that nation.
        God’s love IS real. God does NOT promote hate of ANY kind…the Bible teaches against it. We are to ‘love your neighbor as thyself.’
        But, THAT doesn’t mean we are to be floormats to be walked on…we are to stand up to evil, and pray for those who’despitefully use us’.

        • Deborah Brown

          Tracie,
          You GO girl! Well said!

        • Brett

          Yeah, probably…..lol………

        • Shirley

          I believe as you believe our God is in control and he will always be in control,no matter what Satan may throw at us,but like you said we are not to be floormats for anyone of wrongful beliefs,we don’t need nor want a mosque built anywhere near or far from 911 site it is direspectful to the people who lost their lives there because of terroists and non believers of God.I agree that the buses and bill boards should put up signs stating we don’t want what they believe we should allow,DON’T NEED IT,DON’T WANT what your trying to sell us!!!

          • Dogma-Free

            ummm…Shirley…not to nit-pick, but the WTC buildings were brought down by a few planes flown by Saudis…and by placed explosive charges, most likely planted by your own CIA.
            The catch, of course, is that your government doesn’t want to upset the Saudis, in fear that they might lose Saudi money. The Bush family, being a family who made most of their money in oil, is especially fond of Saudi Arabians, and was even good friends with the Bin Laden family…and I doubt that has changed at all since 9/11.

            The fact is: human lives are cheap to Republican presidents…and certainly more expendable than money or power.
            As we all know, the bleeding-heart liberals don’t quite have the backbone for killing (their own or otherwise) like the Neo-Cons do.

            Anyways, the point is, if America is truly as ‘free’ as so many people would like to claim it is, then that should apply to all citizens of any denomination or religion…including the Muslim religion.

        • mel

          amen

    • Les

      WELL SAID………

    • Jennie Walsh

      America was founded for religious freedom and so religious tolerance has to be part of the deal. If I want religious freedom, then I must be willing to give it to others.
      The truth about 9/11 reveals that the Muslims were not the perpetrators, but the international banksters, the global organized criminals, were the perpetrators, many of whom are in our own government.
      All of the religious, governmental, educational, business, media, political organizations of the world are infiltrated by evil people who are disguised (Jesus called them “wolves in sheep’s clothing). Their job is to stir up hatred, anger, contention, suspicion, fighting and wars of nation against nation, religion against religion, culture against culture, neighbor against neighbor, race against race. When good people wise up and recognize how they are being manipulated and used by evil people, they will be able to resist the propaganda, lies and inciting of hatred, anger, suspicion, contention etc. I look forward to the day when all people on the planet will live together in Divine Harmony, Love and Peace and have the Wisdom and Insight that it will take to achieve that joyous state of being.

      • T. Vance

        we’ll see how much religion there is in this Mosque when the Sharia law get’s going. How will you look in a Burqua?

        • Mary

          Burqua hell no. Those men are savages as far as I’m concern. I cann’t believe what they do to the women there. Sharia Law is hate to women. Islam for me is a religion of peace because they kill you and you rest in peace. If the time comes I believe women in this country will show more pants than men. I’m sure about me and the women in my family. We have hot blood not lemonade.

        • H. Stevens

          I really don’t think Any body’s going to have to worry if this Mosque will EVER be built…. I’d REALLY like to see WHAT Construction Company and WHAT Union is going to Built this Mosque…. Just a Few Words my American Brothers in New York are going to say about Building this Mosque…. Fa Git Abot It….

          • Jana

            H.,
            What about the Greek Orthodox Church that was right across the street and was also destroyed during 9-11 and they cannot get permission to rebuild something that was already there? Yet the Mosque forges ahead.

          • Jana

            Jennie,
            They have Mosques all over Manhattan. We are asking them to be sensitive to the feelings of the citizens of this country and not desecrate a site that to us is a Memorial to those who died because of Radical Muslims.
            Islam can be sensitve too. The imam should also be sensitive and sensible as he says he is trying to bring unity. Do you see any unity here?
            I agree with you, there will be a day when we live in harmony, but only those that have accepted Jesus as their Saviour, and not followed a false religion or served a false god.

      • http://personallibertydigest Sharon

        Jennie,
        I hope you are not deluded in thinking that the Divine Harmony you speak of will include religious tolerence in that day. For “at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow…” He alone is G-d.

        • Jana

          Sharon, you can say He alone is God.

      • American Citizen

        Are you a Muslim? Your naivete is showing.

    • EddieW

      Muslims with Obama are spitting in our face, just like the muslims did to the Jews, when they built their Mosque on the Temple Mount…did that promote peace and understanding???? The Israelies cannot even pray there, as it would start a riot…but have to use the western wall!! The muslims spit in their face, just like they intend to spit in our faces!!! Hopefully we are not as stupid as Obama portrays us!!!

      • Shirley

        your absolutely right,we are not aas stupid as Obama would like us to be,we need to UNITE and stop this insanity thats going on in this country,we the people need to believe and always believe this Nation was built on ONE NATION UNDER GOD and we will STAND for such FOREVER.We all have a BACK bone and a VOICE we need to use them NOW before its to LATE!!!

        • Angela

          I’m against the building of the mosque, it would seem that they have conquered us. They did the same thing in Israel, when they controlled it they built a mosque. When the catholics took over they built a church in Israel. Israel still does not have a temple for themselves, in their own land, and yet they are gracious, and allow everyone’s believes to stay there, the church, and the mosque. Americans are not that gracious, we would have to look at the jewish people for the first time and say how do they do it, and for so long, how many centuries? A mosque would be a slap in our faces and everyone who lost so much and is still losing on a daily basis with our wars, and losing their loved ones, and sacrificing so much. If a mosque goes up it will bring alot more hate. That is the last thing our country needs. Since we lost The World Trade Towers – maybe we should have a World Religious Center for all faiths to go and to pray for our lost loved ones. As well as peace so this never happens again and we never forget, and then maybe we can all grow to have mutual respect just to live on this earth. We are suppose to be “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”, and that is for whatever you choose to be GOD isn’t it.

      • mel

        obama got put into office by a bunch of stupid people. I just hope they have waken up and realize just how stupid . he had some pretty words but hasn’t lived up to them. and how’s all that hope and change working out for you?

    • Cheryl Maurer

      Islam is not a religion, it’s a form of government that encompasses certain views that include worship of allah and mohammad. we have one form of government in this country and its time to get rid of the other form that is festering here (islam).

  • Robert

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if there was a demand that both Congress and the Senate voted on a referendum to support the building of this mosque with CSPAN broadcasting the live vote. No debate, no dissertations, no usual Washington DC BS. Just a Yes or No vote. And if one of these fine outstanding representatives abstain from voting either Yes or No, automatic loss of their Federal Pension and Health Care. Now that would be interesting.

    • s c

      Robert, ANYTHING that removes the cloak of immunity from two-legged skunks will improve the quality of elected ‘representation’ in Washington. Mere words fail me when I try to express my contempt for people who go to Washington to begin a country club existence, knowing that the American people have been dumbed-down and are ripe for the plucking.
      When Americans have with in-house Neros and Jezebels who expect us to remain silent when we should be tarring and feathering those same career criminals, we should have the luxury of picking and choosing our revenge. Those who will not represent us do not deserve our fairness or our civility or our ‘understanding.’ We reserve the right to exact true ‘social justice.’

      • http://www.inmartgroup.com Anna Marie Ferguson

        I couldn’t have stated it better. We do have the right to remove them from office – from ‘tarring and feathering’ to impeachment.

        • slickporsche

          Then lets do it! I will administer the TAR, and another can feather them.

      • valricoslash

        Amen, Amen, Amen. And when you look at the longest career serving politicians in DC the top 15-20 are all Democrats mostly from very safe districts who have not been challenged for their seats in years. If they have no challengers, then they need no campaign funds. Therefore they should have to return al the money or pay a huge tax on it. No roll-overs from campaign to campaign. You use it or lose it. Additionally, there needs to be NO retirement system for congress. Elected officials need no retiremetn system for without it they won’t stay very long.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          varicoslash,
          I beg to differ with you. The politicians get their “retirement funds” while in office. The retirement check is just spending money!! I’ve never known a politician to “retire” poor!!! Even if you take away their pension, they would still try to be career politicians due to the money they make on the side, whether legally or not!!!!

    • Hugh Jordin

      Great idea!

  • slickporsche

    I hate Islam and Muslims, and everything it stands for, and their entire history. THey are all scum bags, and trouble for the rest of the good people on the planet. DEATH TO ISLAM, AND ITS FOLLOWERS!

    This is my 1st ammendment right and I will exercise. You can take it to the bank!

    • Doc Sarvis

      And TRUE Americans will stand up for freedom of religon. By demonizing the religion instead of realizing that it is the extremeists that we are fighing you play right into bin Ladin’s hand. That is exactly what he wants you to do; react blindly instead of being rational.

      • Brad

        Doc,

        This is the same religion that will enslave you because you aren’t one of them. The day you become a muslim is the day I’ll respect your opinions. For now, DOWN WITH the MOSQUE, islam is evil. Even their so called imam will not denounce the 9/11 attackers and why pray tell, they believe what they did was just, my foot they killed 3000 innocents. Tell me their religion is good, please!

        • Doc Sarvis

          I wonder how many innocents we killed in Iraq for no good reason, 100K, 200K, 500K, more? And we are, according to most posters on this site, a nation of Christian principals.

          • Jim

            Doc, I see your comments on here frequently and can only surmise from your stance that you are a muslim ( I won’t give it the dignity of capitalizing it!)or a sympathizer.
            I don’t believe the US made the first strike. The first strikes were on the USS Cole, Lebanon Barracks, World Trade Center and on and on – you know the drill as well as everyone else.
            If I was in charge the whole damn country and all like it would have been turned in to a parking lot. Little terrorists grow up to be big terrorists after hours and hours of indoctrination. I am sure that there were many Japanese and Germans that did not belive in what their government was doing but that did not stop us from blowing up anyone that got in the way – it’s called war and when you fight a war innocents get killed – or at least they will if you are fighting it to win!
            You are probably one of those that believe that we should never dropped the big ones on Japan – barbaric huh?! Read you history Doc, noting compared to the barbaric acts the Japanese performed in the Rape of Nanking or the Germans in any country they entered.
            Quit making stupid ass comments wirthout backing them with some facts!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Jim,
            I can see from your first paragraph that you easily jump to false conclusions. I am not a Muslim but, as a proud American, I value the freedom of religon that is one of this country’s founding principals. As a thinking person I also recognize that our war is with extremeists not with the Muslim religon. Rational thought is clearly not your strong point.

          • Brad

            The numbers you talk about are from their in-fighting (Sunni vs Shiite), they are killing in the name of god, and this is what you condone, Doc. I agree their are civilian casualties in war, but their type of war uses women and children as shields and you condone this also! You are not a true American Doc, you continue the hate by breeding hate, enough said.

          • Doc Sarvis

            Brad,
            No, the numbers I am talking about are from our forces.

          • Brad

            Hey Doc,

            Where is your proof of 100K, 200K, or even 500K civilian deaths at the hands of the US Military and combat operations in Irag? Because you have none, the US Military stieves to prevent civilian deaths, but they do happen, it’s apart of war. Just take a look at history and you will realise that all countries have killed the innocent, but does that make it right, “NO IT DOESN’T.” So get your facts strait, provide proof before you accuse my military of killing civilians!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Brad,
            You might want to reread your own post as you proved my point for me. You asked me to; “provide proof before you accurse my military of killing civilians!!!”. You earlier said that; “the US Military steives to prevent civilian deaths, but they do happen”. Proof.
            The Iraq Body Count site which updates the world on civilians killed in the Iraq war and occupation lists over 106,000 civilian deaths in Iraq. That of course does not include wounded and maimed civilians or those who will eventually die from their wounds.
            You also convieniently side stepped the issue that Iraq had NOTHING to do with the attacks on September 11th. We also lost over 3,000 (I believe) of our own soldiers in this uncalled for war. I love America but I am not blind either.

          • Brad

            Doc,

            I didn’t prove your point, I proved you exaggerated the total number and you tried and make yourself look good, because the site you referenced said they can’t account for all deaths being from military action. They do state the believed # of deaths from different sources and these are the deaths from violence in Iraq, we already know that Al-Quida in Iraq and the Sunni insurgency has killed thousands more than the US military, why aren’t you up in arms about that. Again the US military strieves to prevent civilian deaths and you can’t prove your case!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Where is your documentation?

          • Brad

            Doc, your a smart guy, you can’t tell when you have been bested, just used you own website to bust your tiny bubble.

          • Brad

            By the way Doc, you should read the Quran to completely understand where muslims are truely coming from!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Brad,
            I see now, you can make things up to support your arguments. Good strategy if you can’t provide good information.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Doc,
            If you think this is a question of religeous freedom to this imam then you are truly blind deaf and DUMB. Did you know this very building was where one of the engines from one of the planes landed? It was on the news today!!! This is why they won’t consider a different place to build, and a group approached them to assist in finding a less violatile site and were turned down! This is a “victory” site to them!!! I still say we should wait till they dig the basement for the building and pour about 200 gallons of pork blood from a slaughter house all over the site to desecrate it and stop them from building!!

          • http://naver samurai

            Take it from someone who has been there. If you are from the West, a Jew, a Christian, anything different from what that false prophet Muhammed said to be, then you are the enemy! They even preach to each other in our POW holding facilities there that to kill one of us, their place in heaven is assured. Most of the “civilian” casualties cause by us was terrorists dying and many others killed by terrorists. We are not the one setting off car bombs killing dozens of people and wounding thousands more. Who the heck are you saying that you are a proud American, support religious freedom, but just don’t care if these murderers build a mosque in the area of ground zero? You are a fool and should really get a grip on the reality of the situation before you speak. If you think they are OK, then go to Iran. I’m sure they would really like you there. I person who likes their religion, but is a coward and traitor to your own nation. Site your facts and sources or no one will ever believe you, you traitorous moron! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        Hey moron, this is not a freedom of religion argument! This is about stealth Islamic aggression! Wake up before you are next to be beheaded! Christians are murdered ebery day around the world and Bibles burnrd by the “religion of peace”. What a joke!

        • Brad

          Hey freeworld,

          forgot to mention the ten madical aid workers killed in Afganistan last week at the hands of the taliban. Their reason for killing them, they thought they were devilering the worl of god to the people, what they were delivering was mercy to the sick and dying. So Doc, is islam so great now?

      • slickporsche

        Sorry bud, but it is not a religion! The entire idiology is a fraud, and it is symathetic people like you, that will get this Mosque built. Wake up fool!!!!!!!!

        • kc

          Those who benefit are the radicals who are OVERTHROWING this country by using the principles of Saul Alinsksy and Marxism. The US has been carefully prepared to be easily overthrown (i.e., generations of children raised on Socialist/Communist ideals, institutions changed to be consistent with these ideals, the media propped up as a propaganda machine that would make the former USSR envious, and the orchestrated chaos created on the national level by media and government to keep Americans in a state of stress and confusion).

          The transformation is nearly complete. It is culminating right in front of our eyes.

          America, we need to study and learn about Saul Alinsky, Communism, and our Constitution. There is no other Constitution like it anywhere – and it is being trampled upon and destroyed. Obama is bringing about the destruction of our country.

          When Americans recognize the deception and lies propagated by radicals they’ll recognize the likes of you, Mondovibe.

      • http://www.cystine.com Jimbo

        The problem with Muslims (I work with a very capable one) is that there are no moderates, only quiet ones. If a Muslim were to oppose Al-Quieda, or other extremists, he would be shut down, snuffed, or worse. It is an intolerant, intransigent, all-or-nothing religion. The other dangerous religion which Bloomberg, Pelosi, Obama, Clinton, Gore, and the Media are members of is Humanism. That religion will tolerate intolerance from Militeristic Islam. Any “One World” Philosophy is dangerous, anti-Christ, anti-freedom, anti-debate, monolithic. Are you scared yet?

      • alpha-lemming

        Ehh…Sorry Doc (quoth B. Bunny).

        There are no extremeist Islamists…. “Death to the infidels” is VERY much a mainstream sentiment. When they all gathered around the agora and started dancin’ the Hokey-Pokey on 9-11…. That sight/reaction was NOT a rarity!! I’ll go so far as to say it was commonplace.

      • Jim

        Doc, Do me a favor. For the next year and you can start on Labor Day, go to every parade, 4th of July, Veteran’s Day in other words any celebration that celebrates America and count the muslims that you see attending.
        I watched the recent three 4th of July celebrations on TV from N.Y., Boston and the Nation’s Mall. The cameras thourghly panned the crowds at all three of them. I didn not see one burka, hajib, scarf, man waith a face full of hair and/or wearing typical middle east dress. I give you the fact that some of them could have become so Americanized that they were indistinguishable from any other person in the crowd even though I think there is about as much chance of Hell being loaded with snowballs.
        So, Doc, do your survey and get back to us in a year and let us know how many Muslims you saw at any American celebration. Take pictures and I will supply you with my e-mail address so that you can post them to me. Now, don’t you cheat or lie Doc.
        I’m betting that you come back with nothing because these people do not participate in the celebrtation of something they hate! But please get back to us and let us know the results. All you other people out there try doing the same. I now I can trust you to be truthful – I really have my doubts about Doc – little hard to see things properly throuh rose colored glasses!

      I will do it your way, and vote, even though I know the outcome will be same s–t different day.

      My question for you is what are you willing to do when you realize nothing good has come from your vote? You really need to think about this at great length.

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Barry over the weekend made comments that will fuel this debate. For having a background as a community organizer, it seems his finest trait is ‘stirring the pot’ and dividing the country. His comments should have been stifled, even though we already know that when push comes to shove, he will ‘stand with the Muslims’.

    • Carol

      Baraque Obama will stand with the Muslims because he is a Muslim himself. Isn’t it interesting that the media gave virtually no coverage to his cancelling the annual White House National Day of Prayer. However, he attended the Muslim prayer vigil which occurred shortly after the cancelled National Day of Prayer. There are pictures of him removing his shoes so that he could pray with the Muslims. This guy is not a friend of the United States. He is probably the most dangerous president we have ever had.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Robin,
      Nobama did us a favor and committed political suicide!!! His popularity polls will be in the teens by the time the construction starts. Like was said on Fox today, if Nobama had said something like “I believe they have the right to build there but I think another site would be better.” he would have survived but to just say “they have the right to build whereever they want.” was very beneficial to us!!!!

  • tommysb5

    I would venture to say. Not one TRUE American would want this mosque built at ground zero.. Unless your the “So Called” President. What a complete IDIOT… Well folks, He’s a Muslim and his true colors are starting to show. You can only keep it quiet for a time. I can only wish and pray that Obama is Impeached and then ran out of the USA on a very fast boat….

    • http://-- Jeanie

      What a disgrace and it will happen again as they get more of a foothole in “our” country! There are mosques all over the country if anyway has noted and they are popping up at a rapid rate. The Muslim women have their heads and faces covered — the American people have their heads in the sand! Impeachment is the only answer for this arrogant “stranger” in our midst. What the H . . . did the uninformed vote for . . . . the destruction of our country . . . . and it seems to be right on track. Hopefully someone will have the stamina, guts, fortitude, and sensibility to hold there ground against these occupiers of our Whitehouse as election time is coming.

        Using the rail gun on our duly-elected President would be treasonous, ma’m.

      It is not at ground zero. You can’t even see it from ground zero.

      • independant thinker

        Since the building that will be torn down for the mosque was damaged beyond economic repair by debris fron the planes it can be considered as part of ground zero.

        • Doc Sarvis

          OOOO, thanks Mr. or Mrs. Dictionary.

          • Carol

            Doc……..Are you always a sarcastic smartass, or just on Mondays. I suspect that you are a know-it-all, who thinks only your concepts could possibly be the correct ones. You claim not to be a Muslim, but I suspect that is just a technicality. You obviously think like one. No doubt you are an Obamanite.

          • Jana

            Doc,
            Independent thinker is right.
            I did some checking and found out that the engine from one of the planes was actually imbedded in one of the buidings that the Mosque will be taking the place of. As far as that is concerned a 4 block radius should be considered ground zero.

          • Jana

            Plus Doc,
            So much for religious tolerance when the Greek Orthodox Church that was destroyed on 911 cannot get permission to rebuild on their own site.

      • Michael J.

        Whatzup Doc,
        Your right Doc, can’t be seen from ground zero, the terrorist will need to fly highjacked jets into a few more buildings full of innocent civilians in order to be seen from ground zero.

  • valricoslash

    While I understand that they have the right to build the mosque, it is still an in-your-face stupid move on their part. Lets see howlerent they are if the next door neighbor installs a gay bar or a nude dance club. Now that woudl be something to behold. Another idea is to take up a nation wide col;lection to build a mega non-demininational Christian-Hebrew church and synagogue across the street that is even bigger and welcomes people from all faiths.

    • slickporsche

      No! It is time we stand together on this, and say no Mosque, and realize this time it is not about religious freedom, but survival of our great Republic. We do have the right to bend the rules, when they threaten the existance of our beloved country. America!!! Stop trying to be politically correct. Use your brain. Why do Muslims want to live in America??? We are everything they dislike, and are a threat to their way of life, in their minds. So why do the want to be here????? You do not get it do you. Wake up and smell the garbage on your front lawn. Islamic garbage!

      The planned mosque invites persons of ALL faiths, lady, just like your cotton candy mega-church-synagogue.

        If you really believe that, I have some property you might be interested in. They are totally intolerant of any other faith. If you believe what you posted, why don’t you test it? You don’t even have to pretend to be a Christian. They are also intolerant of gays, too. Go ahead… Find somebody of your same sex and waltz in there hand and hand and snuggling… Let us know how that works out for you…. You don’t have to wait. Find a mosque locally. They are springing up in a lot of places.

      I don’t believe a religion, when it’s main agenda, is to overthrow our government, has any rights I also believe this president should be impeached, because; He is a traitor trying to bankrupt this country. He only has 4 years to do it in, He knows he will never serve a second term. If we don’t rid of these socialist democrats he’ll do it.
      LOOK UP COMMUNISM – THAT’S NEXT.

        Four years is enough time to destroy 100 years of Americanism. The LEGAL immigrants came over here with great work ethics, great family values, respect for fellow man, and faith in God. I grew up in the 50*s, and America was looked upon as a strong united nation, where you worked, went to church, spent time with your family, and had discipline from your parents, teachers, policemen, neighbors. Why are we trying to fix a system that was never broke?

        • kc

          Why are we trying to fix a system that was never broke? Why?

          You grew up in the 50s – do you not remember what Communism looks like? Do you not recognize it when you see it in our government, in our society? The things Obama says could have been written/spoken by Castro, Marx, Stalin,…do you understand? Study what he says. Study what he is doing. Disregard for a moment that it is Obama who is saying it…just read what he says – and you’ll remember what Communism is. And it is not dead.

          The various forces that fight against our freedoms and our Constitution are strangling what is left of it. The Constitution and our freedoms are nearly gone. They are not “trying to fix a system that was never broke” – they are purposefully and maliciously destroying it.

          This was entered into the US Senate record in 1963 from the book “The Naked Communist”: Communist Goals 1963 and Now – some references relate to the USSR/Cold War issues-

          1.Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
          2.Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
          3.Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
          4.Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
          5.Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
          6.Gain control of all student newspapers.
          7.Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
          8.Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
          9.Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
          10.Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
          11.Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
          12.Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
          13.Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
          14.Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
          15.Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
          16.Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
          17.Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
          18.Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
          19.Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.& Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
          20.Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
          21.Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
          22.Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
          23.Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
          24.Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
          25.Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
          26.Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
          27.Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
          28.Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
          29.Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

        • American Citizen

          We are not trying to fix a system that was not broken. Obama’s mantra during the campaign was he was fundamentally going to change this country. Unfortunately, he has a Congress of Democrat Liberals who are helping him do it. We need to kick them all out before it’s too late. It’s not too late, despite what some people think. If we get true Conservative, God loving/fearing people up there, we will survive.

    • Hugh Jordin

      There was a big Muslim protest in Italy several years ago and Muslim protestors occupied a Medieval cathedral complex where they erected tents and made demands for more welfare and other state benefits. The sons of Allah also used the cathedral grounds, the walls and some areas of the buildings as toilets. When challenged by an Italian journalist for desecrating a sacred site, they responded that a Christian place is not sacred to them as Christianity is an infidel religion. When asked what would happen if Christians did that to a mosque in their home country, the Muslims responded that for such an outrage, the perpetrators would be beheaded.

      This is an example of their fair and balanced outlook.

  • John Darmes

    If you study world history you know that Mohammet was a robber baron and murderer. He made his living robbing caravans, killing or enslaveing the men and women and makeing eunichs out of the children. Read the Koran. It is not a religeous tome, it is a political statement. To enhance his political power Mohammet gathered together men who would do his bidding, got them stoned on hashish, and sent them out to murder his opponents. They were called Hashassin, it has since been shortened to assasin. Islam means SUBMIT, and it is all about total control of everybodys everyday lives. It makes Communism look pretty good. I pine for the good old days of Jimmy Carter.

    If we are going to have true religious freedom as the “President” states, give us back our crosses and nativity scenes in public places, that is religious freedom!! It can’t “freedom” just for Muslims because the President is one.

    • Eddie

      I’m going to sit next to Jane. She’s got her thinking hat on and I don’t want to miss anything. The first thing we need to rectify is put the cross back in the desert where it was stolen. Secondly, put the 10 commandments in every public place that’s available. Although, I realize why we can’t put them in a court house. Having quotes like….Thou shall not steal…and Thou shall not commit adultery…and Thou shall not bear false witness…creats a hostile work environment ! As far as muslims go, this isn’t a religion, it’s a cult. If the government put a stop to Peoples Temple and The Branch Davidians then it is also necessary to rid America of ALL cults. Unless of course the POTUS is a cult member too !

      • Alex

        Islam is no more a cult then Catholicism or the Peoples’ Temple or the Mormons or the Jains.

        God is Everpresent Everywhere and we do not need any religious leader proclaiming how and what to believe in order to fatten the leader’s wallet and increase her/his power. All organized religion fails on this account. Any woman or man insisting that theirs is the only TRUE path to God or the Gods is either a liar or delusional or both.

    I can’t support any part of this; I mean some politicians are not getting it, they turn a blind eye to the truth. That’s why I can’t support the mega mosque near ground zero.

It’s our duty to defend this country against all enemy’s both foreign and domestic, buy Mayor Bloomberg sideing with the PC crowd, he’s promoting a religion of hate and pure evil against our people. Come November we the people will start taking back America, our constitution defines our nation, our President doesn’t, congress doesn’t, but the constitution does. SO, we the people need to rid this country of this tyranny that has gripped our politcal system and restore the reupblic for which it stands, One nation under god, and if your a muslim you can join us or go back to your own kind, just get out of our way!

Today anchor babies are draging this country down at the tune of $420 billion dollars spent annualy by states and the federal government, that’s just for medical and education, just for the illegals. How wrong is that

          • Alex

            Thank you, Brad!!

            Finally, something sensible from you.

            If you are willing to “update” the 14th Amendment to suit YOUR needs, then surely you must concede that the stupid, slaveowner written Second Amendment needs to be enforced or done away with, in our modern age.

            The Second Amendment allows only for a “well-REGULATED militia”. Clearly, if our Floundering Fathers might change the rules of the game in mid-Empire in order to restructure citizenship, they would obviously be horrified that the country has devolved into Dodge City at high noon. Automatic weapons? To protect your homes? Silly gun-toters.

            I am glad, again, that you see the Constitution as a living document, able to be adjusted to fit the times.

            Good job, Brad!

          • independant thinker

            Obviously Alex you have no idea what is meant by the term militia in the Second Amendment. The militia is the whole of the legal citizens of the US. It was originaly men between 16 and 45 years of age but with the laws and amendment regarding equality the upper age would no longer apply and women would be included as well now.

            Now as to the “well regulated” portion. The militia, when called was expected to show up carrying their privately owned firearm in good condition with a supply of ammunition and other supplies such as a minimum amount of food, water, and blanket. This is what well regulated means in the context of the times when the constitution and first 10 amendments was written.

    As even the dumbest among us should know, the building of this mosque is not meant to improve relations between christians and muslims, it is ment to mock the victims of 9/11 and their families, and to proclaim a victory by Islam. All of America should resist this Muslim invasion of America and all future attempts to impose Sharia law on the USA.

  • http://Yahoo.com tom

    If this mosque gets built, it will also broadcast over a very loud PA system the Daily Call To Prayer. 5 times a day, 7 days a week. To fight back, other buildings including Christian Churches should also set up powerful PA Systems and broadcast either the “Star Spangled Banner” or a Christian Hymn AT the same time and drown the Muslims out…..

    You folks are missing one important point. Once they set up a mosque anywhere, that becomes sacred ground to them forever. Never let it be built, even if it is only a tent they use. Their founder was a paedophile and even now they take child brides which would be statutory rape in the USA.

  • Marilyn

    CAIR is composed of people. What people? The majority of ‘The People’ do not want the Victory Mosque near Ground Zero. Obama now uses the Constitution reflecting on “Freedom of Religion” to agree with the erection of the Victory Mosque. The Muslims do not practice ‘religion;’ they practice whatever is written in the Quran. Any organization that promotes female children ages 6 and 7 (as young as 1 year old females) to be married to adult Muslim men and promote hatred for any religious sect that is not Muslim is certainly not considered a Religion. Muslims are more a “Cult.” Any organization that does not understand Human Rights is not considered worthy of building any statue (Mosque) in America. Muslim women are considered “toys” and “slaves” to Muslim men. Show me Human Rights in this matter. After 1500 years, the Muslims have not improved and still demand that everyone on this planet should think the way that they do. The Muslim Organization (Cult) is indeed not a Religion. And, Obama agreeing to the Victory Mosque near Ground Zero, what does this say about an American President? Can you see Harry Truman or Ronald Reagan digging out their prayer rugs and giving homage to Allah?

    Too many of our glorious leaders, and the media, would have us believe that the Muslims (Islams) are just a bunch of nice people, and they only wish to observe their religious beliefs in peace and harmony. The Koran rules their life, and the Koran teaches them that all infidels, anyone not Muslim, should be killed. Children are taught this from the very beginning of their life. To a Muslim, the killing of a Christian means nothing but a sacred duty. They are our enemies, and are slowly building up in our country until they are of sufficient power to take over. The sad part is that so many of our own citizes are doing every thing they can to help them. Even though Obama told us many, many times that he would never turn his back on his Muslim friends, we elected him Presidentd. How stupid can we be? In his book “Audacity of Hope”, he went so far as to say “should a conflict arise, I will have to side with my Muslim friends”. And we wtill elected him President of the United States, the very country he is bound to destroy.

    In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child, consummating the marriage by 9. A dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy. Even though a woman is abused, she CANNOT obtain a divorce. To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses. Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the “honor” of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and the man does not have to say why he has beaten her. The husband is permitted to have 4 wives and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion. The Sharia Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman. In the Western World (America) Muslim men are starting to demand Sharia law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to Shariah law. By passing this letter on, enlightened American women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah law.
    Ripping the West in Two.
    Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Sharia law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two. She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law.
    Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old.
    Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza. When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.
    But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television. In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping Sharia law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries. For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose Sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated, taxed (jizya) or killed in this world. Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world. While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others. While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism. It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed.
    Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation. While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.
    In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President by themselves! Rest assured they will do so…
    You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA. Dearborn Mich. is one and there are others. I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
    It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful, some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam. The peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While America is getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children, the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America.

    This is your chance to make a difference!

    • Alex

      You are kidding, right?
      People NOT being able to read something because of the ACLU?
      You retired from the military, but your time would have been much better spent in school.
      The ACLU does all they can to make sure that no one, even the Teabaggers, have their constitutional rights infringed upon. Crybaby whiners like you do not really believe in the constitution—probably because you have never actually read it and reply on what other people say.
      The ACLU does not operate with a political agenda–it is just that the perpetrators of nearly every single deprivation of civil rights is a neo-conartist Rethuglican, and so the Fright Wingers get angry at the only people dedicating their lives to the Constitution.
      You people need to read. Please—read various publications with variant viewpoints so that you might better understand the things you blather on about. There are more opinions than Faux Noose, and even if you do not agree with them you will have a more reasoned opinion of the complex world we live in—good luck!!

        Alex… If you don’t believe that the ACLU is not a left wing organization, you really need to pull your head out of the sand. They have not come to the aid of those people who were intimidated at the polls with the black panthers hanging out, and recently two different college students were expelled because of their Christian religion. They only pick and choose their causes. They are bought and paid for by the left. You really need to get a clue.

          The ACLU defends the Constitution—you crybaby scaredy-cats just do not like the fact that in court they are NEARLY ALWAYS found to hold the CORRECT constitutional opinion!!! HAAA!!!

          You whiners blather on about the constitution but you really know precious little about it—you do not understand the wretched Second Amendment—nor does the Constitution outlaw same-sex marriage—the Constitution, in fact, guarantees all citizens EQUAL access!!

        Alex,
        Did someone mention the ACLU?
        Roger Baldwin, the founder of the American Civil Liberties Union was a card-carrying communist whose goal was to undermine the Judeo-Christian foundations of America.

        The ACLU is “engaged in trying to eliminate every vestige of Judeo-Christian expression in public places in America. They use the laws of the land to get American taxpayers to spend their hard-earned money, actually financing their own destruction.”

        The ultimate goal of the ACLU is to see an America “with little or no public vestige left of religious faith and the traditional family,” according to the Alliance Defense Fund’s Alan Sears and Craig Osten, who wrote the book, The ACLU vs. America.

        The goals of the ACLU were clear from the group’s founding, as indicated by the writings of its founder, Roger Baldwin: “I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class… Communism is the goal.”

        The ACLU “positions itself as the great defender of rights, [but] is against the right of parents not to allow their children to participate in assemblies and curricula that actively undermine and ridicule their religious beliefs,” according to Sears and Osten, commenting on the ACLU’s successful bid to force public school children in California to attend classes that indoctrinate them with homosexual propaganda.

        Yes Alex, the ACLU is a real class act.

        The ACLU was based on the Communist Manifesto. As a Communist or Socialist this apparently is not a problem for you. No surprise there. You’re also extremely rude.

      It takes a little over 2 children to maintain a society. Americans are below that average and thereby engineering their numbers to a minority.
      Muslims have 3, 4, 5, 8, children. Now I don’t know how many of those will get murdered in an honor killing but if it is only half the siblings that bite the dust they still have enought children to indoctrinate and stay above the average birth rate which will insure their dominance in the US. They dominate – you go ye bye!

Then why consider a Mosque at Ground Zero that most likely have an Islamic flag flying over the ashes of those who perished in the 9/11 attact. Why insult the memories of the victim’s families. Yes, there are good and bad in all religions, yet can we honestly state that a Mosque at Ground Zero would be in the Aamerican people’s best interest? A Mosque built by the Islamic Nation who teach hatred for all non-believers of Allah. This Muslim religion will impose their Sharia Law; a gargantuan decree against civil rights and freedom, while trying to take over an existing society. America, look at what is happening in Europe.

    I keep hearing defenders of the constrution of this mosque by saying that if it were a synagouge or church there would be no protests.
    DUH!
    I don’t believe that the either the Jewish or Christian religion has segements of its religion send planes in to buildings, mutilate their young girls, stone their women, require that their women run around with tents on, insist that any woman that wants to go out public be accompanied by an adult male family member, preach the destruction of all that aren’t of the muslim faith and etc etc – you know all the quirks of this religin if you haven’t been living in a cave.
    Their Koran and the Bible, in places, both preach violence against anyione that violates the laws of those books. Exodus says that any who work on the sabbath should be killed. I don’t recall seeing any reports of that going on. But, I do see reports of violence, just about every week, commited in the name of the Koran. How ass backwards can you get as to go to the extreme to perform an honor killing of your own flesh and blood because you tink your name got sullied?
    God help us if this “civilization” takes over the world. All scientific research will cease, progress and modernizartion of any kind will come to a complete halt. We can go back to living in caves and eating raw meat!
    Obama tells us that the Muslim religion has contibuted many great things to the world – yeah maybe a couple of thousand years ago but what, of any good, have they contributed recently.

        If Andrew Joseph Stack is who you are refering to as “The Christian that flew the plane into the Austin IRS offices”, you should know that according to his online suicide note that he was a liberal who hated Bush and according to his associates he was prone to quoting Karl Marx on occasion.

        When it comes to lynching blacks you must be thinking of the late Democratic Senator Robert Byrd, unabashed KKK member who wore the pointed hats that you mentioned.

        Or maybe you mean Professor Amy Bishop who shot three of her colleagues to death and wounded three others, who just happened to be black by the way. It’s a bit alarming to think that such a highly educated member of academia, like yourself, capable of such bloodshed. and to top it off, here’s the real kicker. A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children – the youngest a third-grade boy – was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.

        As far as killing homosexuals goes, maybe you should consult with the planners of the ground zero Mosque. Maybe you and your significant other should visit them. How soon before you will beheaded there?

    We should all reflect on two big NO’S. No more illegal immigrants
    and no mosque in NYC. I am the son of an Italian father who immigrated, after standing in line, during 1914 from Italy. Welfare
    and food stamps would have been below his level of dignity. The
    puppet in the White House is under the thumbs of the crooks on his
    staff. B.O. (that smells) has taken control of everything that has
    made America great. They want to take control of the Internet so
    people like you and me can not go on the web and express our First
    Amendment right to be critical of his daily disaster moves.
    I heard that Peolisi has applied to the the oldest pole dancer in
    Las Vegas and Reid wants to be a pit boss. He better keep a pit bull at his side. November 10th will be our day to get even and drain the

    Part of me is scared about what is going on, and what will come…but I have knowledge in MY God, that HE is in control of EVERYTHING, nothing happens that He doesn’t know about it. IF you’re ready, when the rapture takes place…you will leave this evil world behind and ALL those who are evil in this world…if you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior…you WILL be left behind on that ‘Great and Terrible day’.

  • james

    Folks, get real about what the islamic/muslim faith is all about.
    A sample:
    The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

    Millions of people out of work, people losing their homes, schools closing down, classes being cut, roads getting cheap coatings, bridges about to collapse, Gulf coast devestated, space program cut, bases being closed, business suffering and going out of business
    It’s really great that we are in such good shape so that staritng in 2009 we can send Pakistan 1.5 BILLION for the next five years. Clinton goes over and gives them another million, now we are sending 50 million for flood relief. Wouldn’t it be easier to make the terrorist forces that are concentrating so hard on killing our troops, stop stealing that money and other monies along with it that we are sending them, to save their country but instead use it to kill our men and women so that it is not getting to where it was intended. We are paying for both sides of the war! Or just stand by and do noting that way the ones that drown, starve and die of dicease will definately not become terrorits!

  • barbm

    this is america where we are all guaranteed equal treatment. if the bulding is vacant and they put out the highest offer, then they have the right to open. they used poor judgement and no class. we, however, have the right to do the same. open a strip joint on one side and a pork restaurant on the other. get somebody inside so we know what they’re up to. if they say one word to defend the terrorists or say one bad word about us, sue the socks off them. what i’m worried about happening is u.s. citizens will go to prison for killing some of them. they aren’t worth going to hell for.

    Do you remember what happened on 9/11? Over 3,000 innocent American men, women and children died in the most deadly, vicious, attack on the United States of America by terrorists who only want to kill and destroy America and the citizens of the United States. And I can’t believe the president of the United States of America thinks its a good thing to allow the muslins in the US to build a mosque at ground zero. What is wrong with this picture? Please explain why this president is not listening to the majority of american citizens who are against the mosque being built. We are living in the last days where evil abounds…! Let us all repent and prepare our hearts and lives to meet the Lord because the Lord will soon put an end to all evil. Are we ready to stand before the Lord when He returns for His children. God have mercy on us all, in the name of Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

  • chuck b

    the answer: ban the muslim religion from this country, they are like a cancerous infestation that prey upon the mindless and ignorant of the world.
    the muslims are destroying our society a bite at a time and you notice they are getting more viable all the time, there leader, the muslim and chief has enboldened them.
    the jews have removed christ from our schools and the muslims are moving in. the future does not look good for christianity. judaism, and muslims are looking to gain control. our government was built around christianity and now we are throwing it away to satisfy people that do not agree with us and demand tolerance, neither muslims or jews in their laws condone the christian religion and both call for the death of christians.
    so we must be aware of what is taking place in our country at this very moment. barry soetoro is a muslim and he is commander and chief, isn’t that a little scary.
    the jews claim they don’t follow what the talmud says in the respects of the goyum and the muslims claim they are peacedul and don’t follow the quoran when it calls for the killing of christians and jews. that is hogwash. put your christian head on the chopping block and see who swings the sword first.

  • ONTIME

    Barry says that imam rauf is a tolerant man and has sent him on a tax paid for mission to bridge gaps for negotiation even though he refuses to condemn ham/ass.

    I say let’s put this to a test and allow a adjoining building to the proposed NY mosque to also be approved, a gay bar that specializes in BBQ’d ribs, this is the tolerance we Americans strive for…..I am sure the greedy politicians like Bloomberg can arrange this for a price, maybe a free plate of them ribs would help.

    Furthermore, imam rauf could go to the mecca of muslims and ask for a Jewish Temple and a Christian Church to be built on either side of their mosque as a symbol of their tolerance toward all other religions. This would be a real demonstration of their muslim faith and the allowence of a free competiton among those of faith.

    Didn’t Obama claim to be a member of the Reverend Wright church for 20 yrs and baptize his children there? And then he said “he never listened to the actual sermons for 20 yrs” then our president cancel’s the Christian prayer but promotes Muslim prayer and has a special weekend for the Muslims. Then in his books he claims something different! Something is terribly wrong. Mr. President you represent all the people, not just some of the people and now (thanks to recordings) you are being called upon to express your flip flop rhetoric and explain yourself. It appears your true agenda was for a specific group of people – we all have noticed. Sad, our elected president is not representing ALL the people and our precious country, he is representing his own “personal” agenda at all costs.

  • Clyde Wright

    The Muslim religon is a cunningly devised story of a mortal man that had grown a hold on people that were hurting for something and someone to follow. Why the supreme creator of the universe has allowed this to last this long is a mystery. It will be allowed to grow until God has decided it is time——. If it was of God you cannot defeat it, if it is not of God it will not last. God keeps accurate records. There will be a day of judgement. You best study the Holy Bible without preconcieved ideas that look for ways to prove a point or disprove it. God is not the author of confusion. There is a kind way for people to act toward one another but any student of the bible knows that there will always be wars, satan never rests.

    I am with you Carol. O-bow-ma is a Muslim himself. Whatever happens, he will always side with the Muslims. Yes, O-bow-ma to most Christians is probably satan in disguise. His name according to some bears the number 666 prophesied in the Holy Bible as the mark of the beast.

    Obama’s statement was technically correct in that we do have total religious freedom in this country. Having said that, however, I believe that his statement was utterly insensitive to the reality of this situation.
    I had a son-in-law who was taking a stock broker course at the time of the attack. He was on a break in front of the building when the first plane hit. He could have easily been killed.

    There is a Video, somewhere on YouTube.com (if they haven’t already pulled it off) that will scare the hell out of you, unless you are a complete idiot or a 99er who just don’t care about….. and this video will open your eyes to the real truth about the Muslem agenda for world domination and the destruction of America (and Canada) and all the democratic government on the planet.. I saw it and was so dumbfounded and disturbed by it I had to first find it again (I did) and watch it a second time.
    After the second time I watched it I simply went to bed and tried to forget it. I could not and was so disturbed I went back in line and tried to find it a third time. (I failed to do so)
    Now, I first found the video it was on a discussion blog on a website called http://www.12160.org ‘Destroying the New World Order’ set in motion by a chap named either James or Greg. The title was ” Three secrets of the Coran you should know ” or something to that effect.
    I’ll explain the video because you my not be able to locate the it
    .
    The first secret was that the Coran was changed, against the wishes of the profit and rewriten to form a second Coran which is in secret one in use today by those who are hell bent on a total Muslem World in the future.
    This second version took all the good that the Profit put in the coran and turned it completely around… it hard to explan here… and turned it into something even a good Allah loving Muslem would not like, But then its not out there for general public reading so the real down to earth family loving Muslems will never see or read it.
    The second secret is the absolute necessaty of establishing Sharia Law in the whole world or the whole idea will not work for the new world religion of the profit Mohamad.

    The third secret is about Lies. The new Coran insists that it is possible to lie to other Muslems and non-muslems to achieve the end goals. In fact it demands them to lie as necessary to achieve the ends that the world must have.

    My point is this. Those that want the Mosgue at Ground Zero have been instructed by the demands of the new Law and are lieing when they say the Mosque will only be used for this or for that. Its alright to lie to the America people to achieve the goal.

    When it is built that Mosgue will become the same for America and all of the Western Hemisphere, the same, the very same, as the Black Box structure in the square in Meca in Saudia Arabia.

    Please try and locate and watch the video, I pray you will be able to sleep soundly without bad dreans after you have viewed it. Or do what the retarded and 99ers do. Or, Just say what detctive Jarrard in the movie ‘The Fegitive’..said.. “I Don’t Care”.

    Mosque or no Mosque, running anti Mosque on NYC buses should be met with an equal number of pro Mosque. Approving this is accepting that you can be bought. Whoever has the most money wins. If you’re ok with this be prepared for a future Muslim financial reaction. A good Ad agency can get you to believe almost anything. I imagine with a buck from every Muslim in America a good Ad Agency could convince America it’s the right thing to do. Why? because basically your all just a bunch of sheep and herd mentality works.

  • David

    As for the amount of innocents killed in Iraq, the vast majority were killed by insurgents, not US. We go to great lengths to avoid the killing of civilians. Accidents do happen. Islam directs the killing of non believers. But they don’t stop with non believers, they kill even those with slightly different view on the same messed up religion. Moderate muslims are really heretics. Hopefully, one day they will take over the rest of Islam, but I doubt it.

  • http://gmail i41

    Islam, is not a religion, it is an ideology. It was created by the head goat rider called Mohammed, he wanted a following just like Jim Jones. Islam is created after the moon god Allah, which was a clay figurine housed in a wooden shack in Mecca along with 359 other clay figurines. Mohammed spent his first few year trying to use part of Christanity, Buddism, Hinduism and other religions he came in contact with. Mohammed destroyed all the other figurines except Allah, who the sand loons could call on for any ailment.That is why in any muslim country flag, there is a cresent moon and some times a single star. When he couldn’t get afollowing with his poems and singing, he moved to Medina, it was like San Fran with plenty of squirrels, he found out with his followers he could go a small village and tell them convert of die. Most people converted to survive. The longer he took over more villages the more power he amassed. Everything something irratated him or maybe a goat crab caused uncomfort, he created a new rule, like when you wake up after a sand storm and sleeping you should blow your noses. Duh! Women were way less than a male, Fathers controlled every thing in the tent, he could rape his sons until age 10 when the were deemed men, his daughters could be raped and killed by him, if they got pregnant or brought “dishonor” to the family. Only males could have rent a wife or whore for a substitute wife for a while durning the day or night along with 5 wives. Also followers of Islam can lie and cheat non muslims at will and it is OK and a honor. Even if you think a muslim is your friend, they will give you, your family a chance to convert and if you don’t all of you get killed no and if or buts. Queers get killed if they don’t marry when rump riding the first time they get caught and there is no second time. But boys under 10 are just another peossion. I know you liberal socialists love everybody will knot up over this, but this was taught in Denver by a former muslim who left when the gulf war was going on. He put on classes in Denver about what Islam and muslims actually beleive.

    The Ground Zero Mosque is further evidence that the so-called religion of Peace could more appropriately be labeled the Religion of narcissism, and insensitivity. Can you imagine that Christians, or Jews, or any other religion would so callously build a Church or Synagogue, or house of worship on ground considered sacred to Muslims, if the tables were turned? Can you imagine that even if they would, the intolerant practitioners of the so-called religion of Peace would allow it?

  • Clyde Wright

    There was a time when our leaders ask immigrants to change to adapt to America’s ways and language if they wanted to be accepted. Most immigrants wanted to become Americans in all ways and were proud of it. Today our “so called leaders” are asking Americans to change and let immigrants do as they please and to accomodate them to the extent they criticize America for not being like their old country. People should stay in their old and try to change it rather than come to America and ask America to change

  • Clif

    The constitutional “Freedom of Religion” has been altered to create and allow evil,cruel and abusive actions in name of religion by many. What goes on inside of a religion was wrongly viewed as religious freedom and though humanly wrong was thus ignored. Many of these actions carried out in the false name of religious freedom include mass suicide, mass murder,so called honor killings and war against other religions are definitely not within the intent of the United states Constitution.

    Clearly the Supreme court of this land will understand and refresh the Constitutional intent was and is to prohibit the imposition of religion on any citizen by any religion and or government rule, thus protecting individual “Freedom of Religion”.

  • Clif

    To further enlarge the reasoning used by the settlers of the 13 colonies in creating freedom of religion is to state that the settlers came to our shores and settled to escape religious imposition that removed your head if you did not follow the religion of the ruler who had the only direct connection to God. The colonists were catholic, Quakers, Jesuits, lutherans and so on. In the colonies they ended the religious wars by agreeing that no religion could be imposed by government or others on any individual. Thus Freedom of Religion under the U.S.A. constitution became the law of the land. In other words freedom of religion was to be free of imposed religions.
    INDVIDUAL CHOICE and no meaning beyond allowing evil cloaked as a religious right. The canibals had a religious belief that the haunch was the best part and reserved for the leader.

Then have the audacity to tell us, here in the land of opportunity for them, that they will do, speak, live and carry on as if we should accomadate them on every front! What a way to show appreciation! It is the same as if you invited them into your home and they started moving the furniture around, telling us what time you will serve them dinner and what language you will use when addressing them!

    Islam is NOT a religion but a political ideology. It’s main teaching is world domination. Then Muslims will have peace when ALL are under its control and/or subjugation. Islam only uses Allah for its political purposes…control, killing, hate, abusive to women, murderers of children, and on and on and on I could go. Historically Islam has been murderous since Muhammad sp? Murder, pillage, rape, incest, pedophilia. Again I could go on and on. Islam must be resisted at every point.
