New Vote: Ground Zero Mega-Mosque Gets Approved 29-1!

In a past article about the Ground Zero mega-Mosque, board chair Julie Menin had made the following statement.

“this will be overturned by the full board” later this month.

Unfortunately she was wrong, and it was approved almost unanimously. The non-violent aspect of jihad, is even more dangerous than potential suicide bombers. Besides this punch in the face to NYC, lets not forget the second Ground Zero Mosque that is also being built. It is called ideological warfare, my friends. We need to pickup the pace on our side.

NYC community board OKs ground zero mosque plans

NEW YORK – After hours of contentious public comment, a New York City community board voted late Tuesday to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near ground zero.

“It’s a seed of peace,” board member Rob Townley said. “We believe that this is a significant step in the Muslim community to counteract the hate and fanaticism in the minority of the community.”

The vote was 29-to-1 in favor of the plan, with 10 abstentions. The move by the Manhattan Community Board 1, while not necessary for the building’s owners to move forward with the project, is seen as key to obtaining residents’ support.

“Some board members wanted to postpone a vote until the next meeting to gather more information about the project and the organizations sponsoring it. But the motion failed.!”

The meeting was unruly, with project opponents jeering at speakers and yelling comments such as “You’re building over a Christian cemetery!” while holding signs that read, “Show respect for 3000,” referring to those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Many said they were not opposed to a mosque — just not one that’s two blocks from ground zero.

The families of Sept. 11 victims “would be wounded by erecting a mega mosque so close to the place where their loved ones were massacred,” said Viviana Hernandez, a chaplain. “Even though they may have altruistic reasons, the real terrorists will see it as a win on their side.”

Conservative tea party activist Mark Williams has called the proposed center a monument to the terror attacks.

The organizations sponsoring the project said they are trying to establish a vibrant and inclusive-world class facility.

Plans for the Cordoba House include a performing arts center, swimming pool, culinary school, child care facilities and worship space.

It would provide 150 full-time jobs, 500 part-time jobs and an investment of more than $100 million in infrastructure in the city’s financial district, according to Daisy Khan, spokeswoman for the Cordoba House.

Khan’s husband, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, one of the project’s sponsors, said he understood the pain that people have about 9/11. But he said his community and congregation were among those that died in the attacks.

“We have condemned the terror of 9/11,” he said. “We have worked to ensure that our mosques are not recruiting grounds for terrorists.”

Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said in a statement that by supporting the multi-faith community and cultural center, the board “sent a clear message that our city is one that promotes diversity and tolerance.”

Stringer has been the target of disparaging remarks by Williams for supporting the plans and has defended his position and denounced offensive speech directed at him or at Muslims.

He said before the vote that he understood the sensitivities of the families of 9/11 victims.

“I don’t think anybody wants to do anything to disrespect those families. They made the ultimate sacrifice,” he said. “At the same time, we have to balance diversity and look for opportunities to bring different groups together.”

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said there were no security concerns about building a mosque in the area.

The American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative have said that they bought the building in 2009 and planned to break ground later this year. It could take up to three years to build the Cordoba House. A Friday prayer service has been held at the building since September 2009.

Besides the political and social opposition to the project, city officials say the plan also could be hindered by a decades-old proposal to give landmark status to a building that would be replaced by the mosque and center.

City officials say the current building, constructed between 1857 and 1858 in the Italian Renaissance palazzo style, is historically and architecturally significant.

Bruce Wallace, who lost a nephew on 9/11, said the center can change the misperceptions about Islam.

“The moderate Muslim voice has been squashed in America,” he said. “Here is a chance to allow moderate Muslims to teach people that not all Muslims are terrorists.”

Bruce, how was squashed, were they kidnapped at gunpoint? How do you know that the Ground Zero Imam is a “moderate”? Violent Muslims are the least of the problem, the pro-Sharia Muslims like Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf (more on him in an upcoming article) are even more dangerous. They use our freedoms against us, to advance Islam. Yet here you are supporting him. Good work.

        Christopher, Are you hopeful for a scenario similar to WWII where America finally ‘got it’, just in the nick of time, to help stop the festering sore of global fascism.

          Yes I am, and the voices of Islam are clearly on the rise.

    One of the founders Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is quoted as saying “We have been and want to continue to be part of a coalition of Muslims and non-Muslims that work to eliminate terrorism.”
    Then do not put any structure devoted to any religion there at all.
    Better a non-aligned, totally neutral centre for prayer and contemplation that is devoted to all of humanity as a whole.

    It worth noting the tolerance of islam shining through again. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article

      Does he actually believes that Muslims are going to go against Islam, all because of his words? But then again, he probably thinks that Islam is peaceful.

    We are doing something useful with our lives. Fighting the likes of your
    sorry camel humping ass. You think this country will roll over like
    europistan has been doing? Think again, you goat sucking moron.

    And roll over you will eventually it’s just going to be very slow and painful.

    Europe did not roll over just like that it’s all the mind games we used (manipulation). In the same way we will use your so called democracy and turn things around. We will beat you from within without having to use any weapons just mind power.

    Also PatriotUSA not I havent used any offensive language you should try it once in a while :-p

      Don't count on it. Calls for the ban on Muslim immigration, and Sharia Law are on the rise.

    In response to the NY mosque, the Quran has a warning;
    9:107 And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity – to disunite the Believers – and in preparation for one who warred against Allah and His Messenger aforetime. They will indeed swear that their intention is nothing but good; But Allah… doth declare that they are certainly liars.

    The war is far from over, and our numbers are growing.

    DO any of you realize how much like the Jihadists you sound.

    • May 29, 2010 at 4:56 am

      Right, and the Allied Forces were just as bad as the Nazis. Do you want your family’s future generations, to be forced to live under Islamic rule? Please point out which one of us, wants to impose a set of barbaric religious laws on the world.

      Thanks.

    Fuck you, muz! 20 years from now there will be no muz in the world thanks to the holocaust you yearn for. Only thing was you didn't count on being on the receiving end of it!

    Let them build it….then, hopefully, some one will get pissed off and blow the thing up when it's full of worshipers……..now that would be a very fitting payback wouldn't it?

      His “moderate” cover, is quickly coming undone.

        Very and its good to see that people are protesting – both at Ground Zero and at the Staten Island church.
