It’s been about dawa all along, Islam taking a stab into the heart of American sensibilities, using a scene of immense, grotesque carnage that their co-religionists inflicted, and spin it to their advantage. I say no way, no how, never.
THE MUSEUM TO ISLAM AT GROUND ZERO
The New York Times did a big write-up on the latest developments on the now-scrapped Ground Zero mosque plan. The notorious provocateur, Ground Zero mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal, unveiled a new plan to build a three-story museum “dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam.”
Oh, the irony. A museum to Islam on the site of the biggest and bloodiest Islamic attack on a Western country is grotesque. One has to wonder if one of the exhibits will be the landing gear that crashed through the roof of that very building.
The good news is that the Ground Zero mosque is dead. And we should take a moment to savor that, swish it around, and run it up and down our tongue like an excellent pinot. Because it was a hell of a fight, and despite the support of the president of the United States, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and a hysterical mob media, it did not happen. That was you. Over forty thousand people attended our Ground Zero mosque protests on D-Day 2010 and September 11, 2010. The power of the people.
All of you who fought that 16-story mosquestrosity with us – kudos to you. We fought back, and we won. I asked Andrew Breitbart to speak at our 9/11 protest, and he was brilliant (watch his video here). I am sure he is smiling from heaven.
