If the purpose of the Cordoba Mosque is to build cooperation with other religions, why won’t the Mosque’s developers reveal who is funding the project? Why won’t they unconditionally condemn terrorism? They have done neither, and how this helps interfaith dialogue remains a mystery. It also confirms our worst fears about the provocative nature of Islam– that they desire to bend the kuffar to the will of Allah. They want to provoke. They want to conquer.
The Leftwing/Islamic convergence has a consistency problem. Their overly-nuanced narrative is a convoluted mess. On the one hand they like to blame the 9/11 attack on U.S. support for Israel and our foreign policy in the Middle East, specifically (the usual kneejerk anti-Americanism), and on the West’s treatment of Islam over the years, in general. Implicit in that accusation is that the attack was a Muslim push back against Western imperialism. It was “blow back” for our treatment of the Muslim world. But in a classic case of wanting their cake and eating it too, when we object to a Mega Mosque at Ground Zero, they quickly shift gears and claim Islam and Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11. Lefty “nuance” at its best.
So which is it, Leftards? Make up your minds already. Is it Muslim blow back, or not? You can’t have it both ways. You can’t use 9/11 as a cudgel against U.S. support for Israel, and then claim Islam has nothing to do with 9/11.
Then these same disingenuous bastards claim Muslims have a constitutional right to raise at Mosque at Ground Zero. Perhaps they are right. The Constitution does prevent us from coming down on a specific religion. But that is assuming we are talking about religion, and not a socio-political system. Islam is far more than mere religion, it is an all-inclusive political system in direct competition with the Constitution.
Regardless, does anybody really believe the Constitution still controls in this country? Do you really think these cases are adjudicated on their legal merits, and not by crass politics? Really? Even after Arizona? The words “Constitution” and “constitutional” are used as cover by our political elites to impose their secular progressive, multicultural vision for America using show trials where the results are already a foregone conclusion.
All the New York City Landmarks Commission had to do was declare that lower Manhattan building a historic site, and it would have dispensed with the constitutional issues in this case entirely. End of story. Indeed, as a solution, it would have been cagey and indirect, I will admit that. But ultimately it would have been a more honest one because nobody really believes this is about “the Constitution”. This is about the Leftist multicultural project and Islamic imperialism. It’s about the Left’s desire to rehabilitate the image of an Islam they claim isn’t responsible for 9/11, yet whose attack they simultaneously excuse as Islamic “blow back.”
The mainstream media is calling the Cordoba Mega Mosque at Ground Zero a “monument to tolerance”. The folks at the New York Times are indeed tolerant– especially when it comes to the socio-political agenda the LEFT is trying to promote. We can’t put a Christmas tree up at the mall or on a college campus without offending these self-congratulating double dealers, but when it comes to Islam, they sure are tolerant!
The fact is, this isn’t about “tolerance”, and it’s not about the Constitution. It’s about Islam’s claim to be “living under seige” in the West, yet behaving as lords and masters over infidels they consider no better than dhimmis in the making. It’s about Islam raising a monument to Jihad at Ground Zero, and their utter disregard for the sensitivities of the victims of 9/11. This is not the behavior of a people living in fear, nor of a people who gives a rat’s ass about their infidel hosts. The continuous disregard Muslims show for the kuffar exposes Islam for what it really is– the Religion of Intolerance.
