Move the Mosque from the 911 site

BettyJean

This is been a very difficult issue for me to weigh in on because I believe fervently in religious freedom as promised in our Constitution. The Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” This site is a sacred burial ground; this site is where Islamist terrorist activities claimed the lives of nearly 3000 innocent people. It is because they were Islamist and because they claimed to murder innocents in the name of Islam that this site is not an appropriate site to build a Mosque and exactly why it would infringe on the rights and memories of others because this site marks the resting place of thousands lost their lives as a result of the radical Islamist terrorist activities and hatred. 

Muslims should be free to build mosques and to have expressions of their religion where ever they choose provided that they do not infringe upon the rights of others. I think it is inappropriate to have a mosque on this site if for no other reason than it is offensive and therefore counter productive to the sentiment they themselves claim to achieve. If it is a matter of building a mosque or the Islamic cultural Center,, then that can be done anywhere and it does not have to be at the location of the site at which thousands lost their lives because of Islamic Terrorist activities hiding behind religion of Islam. 

I call upon peace loving freedom loving Muslims to join us in this struggle and lend your voice to dissuade the leaders of this movement from continuing their quest to erect cultural Center on this location. Forcing this upon non Muslims will never foster good will but only serve to foster continued suspicion and ill will.

Again I repeat, we all know the difference between radical Islam and peace loving Muslims I am asking peace loving Muslims to understand and help us show true peace and understanding of what happened here and move the Mosque to another location. That would be a true sign of peace.

  1. Betty Jean,

    There are 10 mosques in the Manhattan area. Including a mosque about 4 blocks from the former world trade center site that is about 40 years old – http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid=6903759195881236864&q=manhattan+mosques&gl=us&hl=en&cd=6&cad=src:pplink&ei=LKdJTM6yAoiOzQTQ7sCQAQ
    I wonder now if there will be objections to those as well. These are actual mosques not a culture center with a prayer room.

  2. Because the cultural center that is coming up has raised a big hue and cry.

    • Odd that you choose to call it a cultural center, indeed you are correct it is just that although it is a mosque – it is not a religious building to be held in the same regard as churches!

      I could be wrong!

      In any event, this particular Mosque is getting heat because this particular building was destroyed by people of that particular Political sect which wraps itself up as a religion shouting Allah Akbar while they were destroying it – and in the name of that very so-called religion by the way.

      The families of the murdered are also against it, as you know, because the Imam is not above reproach, and has been known to blame Americans for the attack. Finally the money funding the purposed cultural center is coming from unknown and suspect sources. On top of that, this sect and Imam want to build at this site for reasons that Americans find abhorrent. Any other site would do just as well and the fact that they bought it in secret just adds fuel to the fire. Perhaps if they had been upfront in the first place – and were open about the finances- these open , honest, innocents would not have appeared as they do and their reason would not appear as suspect as it does, however, as it stands now – it appears as though they want to build it right here in one of the buildings they destroyed to prove their conquest not to make peace. And besides what are they making peace for ? Something they say they didn’t do?

      Peace would be shown if they move down the road a piece. Forcing this marriage – is proving callous- and is proving they are forcing themselves and their lifestyles upon us. It is not welcome anymore than the Sharia laws they also would like us to comply with against our will!

      We have a little thing called The Constitution which allows us to DENY any religion and its MAN MADE laws be forced upon a free people. Islam is a man-made religion with man-made laws which forces itself upon a people and kills them if they dare not comply. This is not in compliance with American values.

      In fact if I had my druthers, to begin with Islam would not be considered a legal religion in America anymore then a religion that allows cannibalism or human sacrifice- Oh wait – this one does require human sacrifice!!

      • Now you see why I was wondering about the impending hue and cry. There are folks on the right who want no mosques anywhere in American and some who would like all Muslims deported out of these United States.
        I have not called it a cultural center, the folks from the Cordoba Center call it a cultural center. I am merely repeating what their stated purpose is for the building. You wanna call it a mosque that’s your call.

        “In any event, this particular Mosque is getting heat because this particular building was destroyed by people of that particular Political sect which wraps itself up as a religion shouting Allah Akbar while they were destroying it – and in the name of that very so-called religion by the way.”

        All 1.2 billion muslins are terrorists who celebrate the 9/11 attacks? You are making an equivalence between radical Sunni Muslims who owe allegiance to the Saudi Wahabi school of Islam and every other Muslim.

        “We have a little thing called The Constitution which allows us to DENY any religion and its MAN MADE laws be forced upon a free people.”

        Who is forcing anything on anybody. This is a private building that has been purchased by a private group of people. They can set up anything they want in there as long as it is within the laws of the land.

        “In fact if I had my druthers, to begin with Islam would not be considered a legal religion in America”

        Betty Jean, you should know that the Koran and the Bible are very similar books with very similar teachings. Compare the two and find out for yourself.

        • Are you a Muslim?

          I disagree with you completely. Muslim religion dictates that Allah and Mohamad comes before country at all times.

          The Bible clearly say render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar’s and unto God that which is God’s.

  3. Are you a Muslim?

    Nope. From India by Ancestry. Hindu by heritage. Atheist by Choice.

    I read the rest. I seriously recommend you get your hands on the Koran and check it out for for yourself.
    The Koran says everything is God’s. Mohammed is a prophet not a god like Jesus.

  4. Sorry I forgot to put in quotes.
