I’ve recently been asked what my thoughts were on the Ground Zero Mosque. I could only answer that they do have the right to build there. Why a Greek Orthodox church can’t rebuild on a piece of property that they’ve owned since before 9-11 I don’t know.
I say go ahead and build it. Why not? There is no lawful reason to not build. However, builder be warned, you want to build a Mosque near/on the grounds where 300,000 New Yorkers lost their lives. Including women children and pregnant women. New York has some of the most proud citizens in this country. There was a line I am reminded of from the movie Spider-man “You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us!”
Well, the very same beliefs that Imam Fiesal Abdul Rauf are the ones that killed 300,000 New Yorkers. Let me be very clear about this, I’m not advocating violence or destruction. I don’t think the people of New York will let this mosque stay. When the law and government fail the people will find a way.
Oh and some of those people killed were cops. Do you think they’re going to look real hard for any perpetrators that may cause some kind of damage? You know what, I take that back, I’m sure they’ll put it at the top of their list. Right up there with all the murders they have to solve.
In all fairness, this mosque is already the center of the nation’s attention, so any kind of vandalism or violence might put some national pressure on the NYPD or the FBI. However, the damage will already be done.
I will probably get a ton of comments calling me an instigator, or that I’m a hater or racist. So be it, I have already said I don’t advocate or condone violence or vandalism. Anyway I’m just saying build it at your own risk.
