On this day of remembrance of the horrific events that happened 9 years ago, I hope it jolts some folks on the mosque issue. I am not against the mosque being built, but it should not be built anywhere near where the world trade center once stood. Some people say this proposed mosque is two blocks away and do not see what the big fuss is all about. But gear from Flight 11 was discovered on top of the building were the mosque is to be constructed and human remains have been found less than 500 feet away.
This mosque building within the area physically affected by the death and destruction is a part of jihad i. e. a stealth jihad. It is not violent, but a jihad that is obtaining Islamic domination victory by means awarded through our system of bringing ideas and desires to fruition. If you are thinking “so what” and that Muslims can live as they want, because it does not bother you, consider that through stealth jihad, Islamic domination is strong enough to forces non-Muslims to be Sharia compliant in an increasing number of public facilities in Europe. Women, are you ready to buy a Sharia compliant burquini to use your community swimming pool or enter on to a public beach?
A more “in your face” aspect of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero is triumphalism which is mosque building on or close to an Islamic victory. And throughout Islamic countries, Muslims saw 9/11 as an Islamic victory. This is why I oppose this mosque being built two blocks away from Ground Zero. I know there is a mosque that has been there for a while in the area, but it is not there due to triumphalism. Some of you will say, this was a terrorist victory and not an Islamic victory, but the death and destruction caused that day was done in the name of Islam. The planning and especially the funding of that terrorist cell came from Muslims from Islamic nations despite the fact that there are many Muslims who would never be apart of such a thing.
If you are wondering about the Pastor Terry Jones controversy, I am also against any kind of Quran burning. Pastor Terry Jones appears to be in it for the notoriety as far as I see it. I agree with General Petraeus. Not only is Pastor Jones endangering our soldiers and American people abroad, but he is also making life worse for fellow Christian brothers and sisters living in Islamic countries.
Today, September 11, 2010 the pain still abounds and this proposed mosque will intensify that pain for many who lost loved ones 9 years ago.
