"Support Freedom of Religion"

Imam Rauf’s replacement mufti, the all new Ground Zero mosque imam Adhami, just came out with some very moderate statements that can only be misunderstood by the excremental eneMedia and shamelss Islam promoters like New Yok’s mayor Bloombugger:

Adhani: ‘Apostates against Islam must be jailed’

Atlas Shrugs

Now that the media has whitewashed and sanctioned the extremist jihadi rhetoric of Rauf and Daisy (it’s not extremism, it’s Islam, baby) the Khan, anything goes.

The new and more radical Ground Zero mosque imam Adhami, a disciple of the WTC unindicted co-conspirator Siraj Wahhaj, is now stumping for Islamic law on apostasy. Now one might say that Imam Adhami is a moderate, because he is only calling for jail for those who convert out of Islam, when death is ultimately the penalty demanded by the sharia (Islamic law).

Interesting, is it not, that for them ‘freedom of religion’ takes on a completely different meaning:

For them, freedom of religion means the freedom to kill unbelievers, apostates, adulterous wives, homosexuals and even their own children ‘if they fear rebellion’.

For them, freedom of religion means the freedom to strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers, to kill in order to spread the religion, the right to child-marriage, polygamy, female genital mutilation and the freedom to lie and deceive the unbelievers.

Freedom of religion means a whole lot of different things to them, like sedition, subversion, infiltration, to bring our miserable house down and to replace our law with the perverse despotism of Muhammad, profit of Islam.

Freedom of religion also includes the (public) stoning of women, head-chopping, cutting off arms and legs on opposite ends etc etc.

Their freedom of religion means enslaving us all, terrorizing us in the name of Allah, abandonment of reason and all power to the Mullah’s.

All of the above amounts to high treason against humanity and to any civilized  society.

In light of the above,  one of my favorite Churchill quotes comes to mind:

“It is the primary right of men to die and kill for the land they live in,  and to punish with exceptional severity all members of their own race who have warmed their hands at the invader’s hearth.” (Winston Churchill)

Who would be more deserving to hang next to those who are determined to destroy us with our own laws?

Dereliction of Duty

MSNBS’s Matt Lauer is as dim as a lame stream media tart can be. In this gushing promo for mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal he fails entirely to ask  any relevant questions, while Gamal the thug tells him  “I’m calling the shots on Ground Zero mega-mosque” and the usual “we are here to stay” drivel.

The waiter-turned-millionaire developer (a transformation not yet satisfactorily explained) Sharif El-Gamal has said that “when you beat up someone physically you get exercise & stress relief,” and he has a history of run-ins with the law. But now the mainstream media is in full-bore whitewash mode, even as he digs in his heels and continues to try to demonize the opponents of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. This is nothing other than Today’s Show’s love letter to El-Gamal, along with some choice observations from Pamela Geller, here.

He may be insisting that he is calling the shots on the project because his partner Hisham Elzanaty recently said that he was.

“Mosque Developer Has No Plans to Move the Project,” from NBC New York via JW

The developer behind a controversial proposal to build an Islamic center near ground zero says he’s the one ultimately calling the shots on the project and there are no discussions about moving it.Sharif El-Gamal, who is of Egyptian and Polish descent but was born in Brooklyn, spoke Wednesday on the “Today” show. “This has been very unexpected. It’s been an eye-opener to see how my country, the United States, views my religion, Islam,” Sharif El-Gamal, chairman of Manhattan-based real estate company Soho Properties, told Matt Lauer.

He added there are a lot of misperceptions about his Islamic faith. “We are peace-loving Americans. Fear makes people irrational, and our identity has been hijacked by the extremists.”…

Building a mega-mosque at Ground Zero, and insisting on doing so in the teeth of enormous popular opposition, is sure doing wonders to dispel those misperceptions, eh, Sharif?

Hamas-linked Islamic groups compare Ground Zero mosque to Rosa Parks

You remember when Rosa Parks took down the Twin Towers? Remember when she murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood? Remember her Times Square bomb plot? Remember her Christmas underwear plot? Remember when she murdered a soldier at a Little Rock Army recruiting center? Remember her London bombings? Her Madrid bombings? Her Mumbai bombings? Her Beslan massacres? Her Bali bombings?   (JW has more)

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Claims Credit for Training NY TImes Reporter

Figures.

The Islamic machine is in full throttle. I discussed the infiltration of the highest echelons of the media in this piece at Big Journalism back in January: The Society of Professional Journalists: Why We Never Get the Straight Story on Islamic Jihad

Rauf ‘s group is claiming credit for training the NY Times reporter who first wrote of the Ground Zero mosque where Rauf said,

“’New York is the capital of the world, and this location close to 9/11 is iconic,’ Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, 61, the cleric leading the project…”

Who are the Real Bigots?

Update:

Is Time a Muslim Magazine? (by Phyllis Chesler)
Sultan Knish

Over the last year every time the media sensed that it might be on the losing side of an argument, it began shouting “Bigot”. When ObamaCare and the Big Bailouts began floundering in the polls and meeting up with populist protests, the media began running stories accusing the protesters of being bigots, while claiming that “Socialist” was actually a racial slur. Now the media and its political agenda is once again on the wrong side of the American people over the Ground Zero Mosque, and once again the media is playing the bigotry card.

At times like these it’s all too obvious why liberals have been so determined to co-opt race, because it gives them an open ended smear to use in virtually any situation. In the Obama Era, the media has been certain that the very presence of a half-black politician behind their agenda, meant they had an unlimited use of the race card. They were wrong. The media’s smears have resounded only inside liberal echo chambers, and their constant attempts at exploiting a serious problem, for their own political advantage has rebounded on them.

But even as many prominent Democrats are cutting and running, the media has decided to make a last stand over the Ground Zero Mosque, in their time honored fashion of yelling, “Bigot” over and over again. The members of our red fourth estate, who graduated from shouting “Bigot” at college campus protests, to penning long articles for major newspapers about America’s history of bigotry, have only adopted a more sophisticated way of shouting “Bigot”, while showing their contempt for the vast majority of Americans who oppose the Ground Zero Mosque.

The same “courageous” activists of the press, who are busy scribbling and babbling their condemnations of American bigotry– quietly censored themselves when it came to standing up for freedom of speech against the cartoon beheaders. Because while they might lie to the public about being afraid of the Tea Party Movement or the Ground Zero Mosque protesters, they can’t lie to themselves. When the door is closed, and the shades are drawn, and it’s just them and their Mac Book Pro, it’s not the Tea Party they’re afraid of. It’s Ahmed and his axe.

Condemning Christians in America or Jews in Israel earns you a Pulitzer. Condemning Muslims in the Islamic world, earns you a jail term or a funeral. Over here, they “courageously” denounce American bigotry. In the Muslim world, they whitewash the real story so the local regime doesn’t put them on the next plane back to where they came from. For their own safety. That’s why a video by a US soldier or a Facebook photo by an IDF soldier will be front page stories. But the treatment of Copts in Egypt, Hindus in Bangaldesh or Kurds in Turkey will be buried somewhere far out of sight.

So who are the real bigots?

There is hardly a Muslim country where Christians, Jews, Hindus, Bahai and others are not second class citizens. By contrast Muslims have been given equal rights in America, Europe and Israel. Yet that’s not the image you will get from the media, which will accuse non-Muslim countries of bigotry, without daring to hold Muslim countries accountable for institutionalized discrimination with its roots in Islamic Sharia Law. The media has declared that the Muslim version of Jim Crow is just fine and dandy, and that the real problem is that some Americans couldn’t help but notice that 9/11 happened.

If recognizing the daily death toll of Islamic violence worldwide makes one a bigot, then the truth itself is discriminatory. But who does it discriminate against? By sidelining coverage of Islamic bigotry and persecution, the media discriminates against Buddhists, Hindus, Christians and other non-Muslims who are oppressed and looking for aid. By denying them a hearing, the media discriminates against hundreds of millions of people. But furthermore by failing to report the truth, the media discriminates against Muslims by failing to expose and report on stories that could lead to social reforms and ethical awakenings. Instead the media shouts, “Bigots” at non-Muslims, while patting Muslims on the head and telling them how wonderful their faith is. And isn’t that the worst bigotry of all? Because to deny someone in trouble the truth, is to deny them the opportunity to change.

Some Muslims have actually shown better judgment on the Ground Zero Mosque, than the media has, by recognizing that it is a bad idea. Had the media done its job of reporting the news, instead of shrilly editorializing for its own political agenda, more might have been able to reach that conclusions without having to wait for the polls, which showed that the vast majority of Americans and New Yorkers were opposed to the project. Instead it looks like Imam Rauf will be exposed as a hatemonger, and those politicians and the press that got behind the Ground Zero Mosque will be the ones on the wrong side. And because the media insisted on turning this into a referendum on Islam, they will have accomplished exactly what they claimed to be fighting against. The characterization of Islam as an ideology that encourages violence and disdains America, even when it operates on American soil.

And so the media is giving it its last best effort. It’s warning us that America will look hostile to Islam if it does not allow the Ground Zero Mosque to be built. Yet up until September 11, plenty of mosques were built in America. Yet that did not prevent any of the Muslim terrorist attacks that occurred up until that time. The presence of mosques did not serve as a shield in Manhattan then. It certainly isn’t going to now. Sensitivity will not save us. Neither will a willingness to bend over backward to our enemies. Such behavior is not only foolish, it actually provokes attack.

If sensitivity were the issue here, it would be far more incumbent on Muslims to show sensitivity to 3,000 American dead, than for Americans to show sensitivity to a grandiose Muslim building project in a part of America where there is no Muslim community. Think about it. In every culture, respect for the dead is a basic value. And those who do not respect the dead of another people, similarly show that they do not respect the living. That matter of disrespect to Americans, both living and dead, has sharpened the situation. And all the doubletalk in the world from Park51 won’t change that. And if the situation were reversed, and an American church was being built in a damaged building in Afghanistan, near a spot where thousands had died in Coalition bombings, there is no doubt whatsoever whose side the New York Times editorial would come out on. But that’s because like Imam Rauf, the Times staffers respect Muslim dead, just not American dead.

Finally the media dragged out the “Freedom of Religion” argument, claiming that mosque opponents are undermining the Constitution. But the First Amendment provides unlimited protection to freedom of religious belief, not freedom of religious practice. If it were otherwise, houses of worship would not be subject to zoning laws. Or any laws for that matter. And since Ground Zero Mosque defenders have already argued that it is not a religious building, but some sort of 13 story community center (in a neighborhood without an actual Muslim community), they have already contradicted their own argument. They cannot argue that the building is both religious and non-religious at the same time.

But don’t count on the media to hold to any intellectually consistent standards. The same media that attacked Dr. Laura for using a racial slur, will ignore Imam Rauf’s use of the same racial slur. The same media that criticized Israel’s reconstruction of the Hurva synagogue in Jerusalem, destroyed in the Jordanian ethnic cleansing of Jews from East Jerusalem, insists that any impediment to the Ground Zero Mosque is a horrifying testament to American bigotry.

In March, the same New York Times which has been going on a tear about any resistance to the Ground Zero Mosque, described the timing of the Huvra rebuilding as “unfortunate” and quoted Muslims who were worried that from certain angles, the synagogue would appear to be taller than some mosque (a no-no for infidels under Islamic law). The LA Times equated the rebuilding of the synagogue with “extremism“. Reuters quoted ominous warnings about the synagogue being part of an effort to “Judaize“, Jerusalem. The media did not angrily condemn Muslims for their intolerance of the rebuilding of an ancient Jewish house of worship. But that is the double standard. And it is part of the reason why people are so upset.

If Muslims actually extended tolerance, instead of only demanding it– we wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place. Instead Muslims demand the right to do what they want in non-Muslim countries, while insisting that non-Muslims abide by a rigid code of behavior in Muslim countries. American female politicians must accept their inferiority when visiting Muslim countries by wearing a headcovering that symbolizes female submission to men. British tourists have been arrested for a casual kiss in Dubai. And the media defends all this by saying that Muslims have the right to set the rules in their country. Yet apparently we don’t have the right to do the same thing.

This is not about bigotry. This is about the media’s moral and physical cowardice in refusing to stand up to actual bigotry around the world. And the victims of their silence include both non-Muslims and Muslims. Meanwhile the media can continue shrieking about bigotry. It will not win them the argument, all it will do is further devalue the accusation. Because you can only cry wolf for so long, until people stop paying attention. And when you refuse to cry wolf at an actual predator, while crying it at everyone you dislike, then no one will end up listening to you at all.

The Guardian Unhinged

Opposing Islam Is Fascism!

That’s exactly why the intellectually superior editors of the Guardian instantly delete all opposing views in the comments. Its all for ‘the greater good,’ really. Its all about being ‘fair & balanced’, no s#*t!

People tell me that once upon a time the Guardian was known as a respectable newspaper. Nowadays it has become a nest for assorted Commies, radical Greens, terrorists, anarcho-progressives, all kinds of anti-Semites,  Arab parasites, leeches who feed of them,  conspiracy theorists,  Jihadists,  and other kinds of loons. The crazier, the better.

At the very least, if you are not a  hate-preaching  mufti or a one-legged lesbian  with a glass eye who hates the world, or, at the very least an African or South American revolutionary,  you haven’t got the  chance of a snowflake in hell  to get published.

This week, the Grunard  has really come out and combined forces to attack the true enemies of progressive society: Pamela Geller & Robert Spencer, who are to be burned at the stakes for stirring the pot against the Islamization of America and the Ground Zero mega mosque. Imam Rauf’s  100 million dollar victory monument is salt  in the wound of all Americans, but for the giggling, enlightened progressives at the Grunard opposing the mosque is far worse. Why?  Because appeasement works so well, and since Muslims are doing so much to culturally enrich us  every day, we need to make things easier on them, right?

The result of so much delusional bile can be seen here: The US blogger on a mission to halt ‘Islamic takeover’ from a goose by the name of  Chris McGreal, who gets his feathers plucked instantly: The Guardian of What? McGreal is not only fact challenged, but also makes it up as he goes along. But isn’t spin and stupidity everything the left wing media has these days?

Then, there’s another hit piece from by Andrew Brown at The Guardian’s Comment Is Free that gets shredded by Robert Spencer here: Department of Corrections: Insults and idiocy from The Guardian.

Check it out, its pathetic.

Meanwhile, the Islamofascists are  running from debate:

Dawud Walid of Hamas-linked CAIR bails out of debate with Spencer…. which doesn’t stop Manya Brachear of the Chicago Tribune to offer a soapbox to  notorious Islamo-headbanger Ahmed Rehab:  Chicago Tribune journalist/propagandist Manya Brachear gives space to Hamas-linked CAIR to smear freedom fighters

Islamic supremacist Ground Zero mega-mosque Imam Rauf starts U.S.-paid Middle East tour

Howard Dean complains of Dems demonizing opponents of Ground Zero mosque; will Pelosi investigate him?

Salt in the wound

“The ultimate insult…”

From the comments, the kind of people who read the Grunard:

Two tenants of American politics, the right to bear arms and freedom of speech, two of the most divisive and repugnant tenants anywhere in the world. Unfortunately protecting people from incitement to racial hatred and people with guns is less important than energy harvesting and the capitalist dream.

Heaven help us! I hear North Korea is beautiful this time of year, off you go!

First They Came for the Terrorists

It’s a testament to the intelligence level of liberals that they prefer nursery rhymes to ideas. Whether it’s Auden’s “Those to whom evil is done, Do Evil in Return” (a verse from a Communist poet partially justifying Hitler’s invasion of Poland, that he later disavowed) or “What Would Gandhi Do?” (give up and hope his enemies felt bad while cutting off his head) or the most famous nursery rhyme of them all, “First they came for the Communists.”

This particular nursery rhymes endeavors to explain Nazis from a leftist perspective, in which Hitler’s triumph occurred because no one spoke out when Communists were being imprisoned. When in doubt, the left and various useful idiots routinely trot out revised versions of this nursery rhyme. The current popular formulation on the left is “First they came for the Terrorists.” (The Cato Institute’s attempt to write one called “First they came for the Sex Offenders and then the Terrorists” proved to be wildly unpopular as no one outside the Cato Institute or maybe its liberal counterpart, the ACLU, sympathizes with sex offenders and terrorists at the same time.)

Ground Zero & "The Image of Islam"

The 9/11 Mosque’s Peace Charade

By Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer

A massive fifteen-story mosque and Islamic Center going up in what was once the shadow of the World Trade Center claims to offer “the opposite statement to what happened on 9/11.” The Center organizers, the America Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), have worked hard in the media to portray themselves as Islamic moderates working for peace on the exact spot where their belligerent coreligionists perpetrated murder and mayhem in the name of their religion. But the words and deeds of the leader of the effort, the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, suggests a more ominous reality: Abdul Rauf is a master of deceptive, Orwellian use of language, manifesting a deep contempt for non-Muslims and full accord with the supremacist goals of the 9/11 hijackers. More>>>

The Imam Abdul Rauf is on record saying “I don’t believe in religious dialogue”. He also doesn’t like the concept of freedom of speech. Yet, when confronted by irate citizens, he presents himself as a longtime interfaith-snake oil salesman. Abdul Rauf talks one way to the kuffars on  television and quite another when he is not building shrines to the hijackers of 911. Check out what Robert  Spencer wrote about him in 2004. His wife and coconspirator Daisy Khan wonders why Americans object to the Islamization of America and a mega mosque on Ground Zero, when we (and our children) will all be Muslims anyhow. Daisy Khan told us that the Islamic Center would help non-Muslims to integrate. Interesting word choice. Not help Muslims to integrate into the American secular fabric, but to help non-Muslims to integrate into…a Sharia state.  Daisy also doesn’t care much for America’s laws, because she openly promotes polygamy and covers up for those who engage in it…

In short, the Islamo-propagandists talk out of two sides of their mouths. The same Abdul Rauf who espoused the spread of Sharia law on Arabic websites  said the opposite in the pages of the Daily News.  He is the man New York City authorities are about to allow to build a mosque on Ground Zero.

Cordoba House, Ground Zero and “Overcoming the Fear of Islam”

Mehnaz M. Afridi wants to paint a pussy on your cheek:

“Where are the ‘moderate’ Muslims?” Well, here they are. Let’s not let the fears of a handful of people become the resistance to an entire community.

The resistance to building the Cordoba House demonstrates the need for such a centre, which can educate and inform Americans about Islam and show that Muslims are partners in building a prosperous and peaceful America, says Afridi. (It turns out Mehnaz is a well trained Islamo-agit-prop)

The Massachusetts Mega Mosque

Just a reminder:

As a little history lesson to folks out there, Islam has a long and bloody past of building their mosques over the holy places of other religions as a symbol of the Muslim religions dominance over another.  Ayasofya Mosque was built in the former Hagia Sophia basilica in Istanbul… Al-Aqsa Mosque was built on the top of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem… Umayyad Mosque was built in Damascus right on top of where the Church of St. John the Baptist once stood.  I think you get the picture. These are just a few examples, there are thousands more. Islam is not just replacement theory; it is eradicating reality along with everything that came before it and everything that stands in its way.

Muslim Immigrants are making Germany ‘dumber’, according to Thilo Sarazzin,  board member of the country’s central bank.

You don’t need to be intelligent to be Islamic:

The negative effect of Islam itself on IQ I speficied elsewhere with reference to a French scholar:

“The deadening influence of Islam is well demonstrated by the way in which the Musulman comports himself at different stages of his life. In his early childhood, when the religion has not as yet impregnated his brain, he shows a very lively intelligence and remarkably open mind, accessible to ideas of every kind; but, in proportion as he grows up, and as, through the system of his education, Islam lays hold of him and envelops him, his brain seems to shut up, his judgment to become atrophied, and his intelligence to be stricken by paralysis and irremediable degeneration.”

(Quoted from “Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman”, authored by Andre Servier, 1923).

A Wake up call for the interfaith dialoguers:

9/11

The Community Board for New York City’s financial district last week unanimously approved the construction of a 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center right across from Ground Zero. Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in eye of America. This best demonstrates the territorial nature of Islam. The very idea of building a mosque at Ground Zero is a manifestation of Islamic domination and expansionism. More from Human Events
