Greek Orthodox Church denied Permission to Build at Ground Zero

Here Michael Coren, perhaps one of the Great White North’s most sane voices of reason, tries to make some sense of the Ground Zero victory mosque.

“The fact that they are allowed to build this mosque says a lot about the U.S.  The fact that Muslims will build it says a lot about them.”

“The whole idea behind it [the mosque] being a ‘communal center’ is just pulling one over on the non-Muslim world.  It will be a MOSQUE.”

The Greek Orthodox Church was denied permission to build a church close to Ground Zero, yet Islam can build a mosque for the sake of “reconciliation.”  That says it all, no?  And who do the mosque developers think they’re reconciling with by erecting this victory mosque?  Certainly not with those opposed to the mosque!  Muslims are only antagonizing them.  That just leaves the Liberals who favor it.  Except no reconciliation was ever required with them!  Islam had Liberals at hello.  So once we dispense with “reconciliation” as the facile and disingenuous excuse it really is, then that leaves only one other motive to build it– victory.



  1. This is not private property. It is half owned by the utility monopoly, Con Edison. The mosque developers have registered the project as a charity. As such, it is subject to a background check AS IS ANY CHARITY, as inevitably, extra city, state and federal resources will be necessary. IOW, tax payer money. Is there a reason our Attorney Generals have not conducted due diligence? Of the financial ability of the developers (they have already come forward and stated they do not have the funds to fully complete the project) Of the organization’s officers? This just doesn’t pass the smell test.

  2. The one VERY IMPORTANT point missing from this article is the Greek Church WAS DESTROYED ON 9/11 and they want to REBUILD the church!

    Only if you are an anti-American radical muslim who wants to destroy America,(like the kenyan idiot in the oval office) will you be pampered, bowed to and given anything you want.

  3. I do not understand why St. Nicholas Orthodox Church which existed since 1854 on Ground Zero is being denied permission. The Mosque should not be given priority in this situation. The church existed there and has a right to rebuild there and President Obama should be ashamed of himself for suporting the Mosque and not the only church that was legally there!

  4. You’re a right wing conspiracy freak..if you CONTINUE to believe the President is a Muslim, it only shows that you are highly uneducated and ignorant.

  5. I totally agree with some of the comments on the tape and on the comments section. I don’t think a Church of any kind should be put at ground zero. There were many people who died that had different faiths.
    They should just make it into a big beautiful garden with a stone wall of all the names of people who died. Not a damn Church, there are too many Church in the world.

  6. Compare what criteria determine religion and what criteria determine a cult. It is clear what pisslam is. And as such they have NO rights to build their evilworshipping, hate and supremacism spreading tent! Just because liberals and human rights activists have no brains and no guts and despite the fact that they rule (= shows how democracy can turn ugly, doesn’t it?…I wish we had a Republic!) doesn’t mean that normal and sober people can’t push back and turn it around. Islam has no place in the west. Irreconcilable differences. Proven million times over. We don’t have time to reinvent the wheel here. If muslims want to bring their retarded habits and ideology here and “improve” and “enrich” our society…No, THANK YOU. We have been enriched enough. Go elsewhere and fix your Saudi, Yemeni, Kenya, Iran, Egypt, Lybia etc human right problems and your own corruption. We will handle ours our way, you handle yours.
