Non-Muslims Pressure Hartford Common Council to Drop Islamic Prayers!

Once again we see that non-Muslims taking an assertive approach, against the threat of Islamic expansionism is achieving positive results for our side. Appeasement and complacency are not the answer, Muslims will always want more.

No Muslim prayers at Hartford Council during September

On Friday, the Hartford Court of Common Council announced they would not include Islamic prayers prior to their regular Monday meeting because of the public’s mostly-negative reaction to the inclusion of Muslims so close to the anniversary of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks.

The prayers were originally suggested by Luis Cotto, council minority leader.

“My intention, as I tried to convey on the press release, was to have an imam deliver the Monday invocation specifically to send a message of solidarity at a time when anti-Muslim sentiment exceeds (in my opinion) post-9/11 levels,” Cotto said.

That anti-sentiment may be fueling — at least in part — protests around construction of Cordoba House in Manhattan, and a nutty pastor’s plan (which he later abandoned) to burn Qur’ans to mark the 9/11 anniversary, as well as incidents such as this.

Muslim prayers were to be included in traditional convocations already said by representatives of other faith traditions, but after the reaction from constituents and beyond, the council will opt, instead, for a moment of silence.

    Its starting to hit closer to home, isn’t it? Muslims are nice and quiet until they get a good size group and then led by some bigmouth cleric. Then the demands start coming…phone calls to CAIR “We need your help.”
    this is just the start. Theres more coming.

        if you have email contacts, facebook contacts, myspace contact, twitter contacts – tell them to view the video Robin told you about or google: three things about Islam – what a eye opening video – tell them there is no bloodshed in the making of the video – often times it is women getting their head beat on, or men sitting little girls on fire –

    Is Luis Cotto a dhimmi? This is a rhetorical question.

    Apparently it’s all that nutty pastor’s fault, no mention of the thousands of hostile clerics in the west, habitually inciting riots.

    There is no faulting and/or blaming anyone except the one(s) who make a choice. We are responsible for our actions regardless of what they are. Those who blame haven’t grown out of the child stage.As the old saying goes: “The buck stops here.”

    Arielcat, everyone and their mothers have unfairly slammed the Florida pastor (not Chris, thankfully). It is undeserved. I think it’s only because Terry Jones isn’t “cool” the way Wilders (who advocates BANNING the Koran), Westergaard (who also “needlessly provoked but gets medals from Merkel while Jones gets slammed in the same speech), and others are. I say it’s because Jones isn’t cocktail party material.

    It’s really disheartening to realize that many of even those on “our” side don’t know the meaning of creating allies in this war. We can’t agree on everything– but we should all agree that Islam is an enemy ideology and we should all be supporting all non-violent protests even if we don’t care to participate.

    Also, Chris, did you notice that when Rauf “threatened”, he actually used the same exact argument Patraeus used the night before? He was emboldened, I THINK, because of Patraeus. He miscalculated the public’s response but I am convinced he only tried that argument because of Patraeus.

    I’d like to point out one issue I haven’t seen mentioned previously.

    Mr Rauf and his supporters claim that the Cordoba-House (great Name why not keep using it?) is a tool to build bridges between people of different faith, especially Christians.

    If Muslims want to build bridges to others, hey why do they not join the YMCA, or other such organizations? Now they have to wait for the Building to be adopted to their needs, and finished in over a years time, why waste so much time?
    All this time over a long history Muslims (as the youngest of the abrahamic Religion) could have build bridges, to Buddhists Hindus and if Mr. Rauf thinks this is important, then why not go where the adherents of other faiths are?

    Sadly I do NOT believe one moment that the aim is to build bridges, but as a propaganda tool for Islam.

      Well, he is a slumlord. They don’t seem to respect anyone other than themselves.

    It’s funny that he was “apologetic” in one breathe then in the next threatening. 🙂 Cordoba House – look up the original Coroba/Cordova mosque in Spain and it will tell you that this is not a peaceful building – this is this coming in and claiming they own us.

    Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor ~ ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?.
    This one sure does!

    This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the U.S., U.K. And Australia

    THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH

    Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

    Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady.

    ‘Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since? Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation’s capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?
    And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.
    I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.
    I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan

    I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I’ll care when the cowardly so-called ‘insurgents’ in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

    I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

    I’ll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don’t care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don’t care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and ‘fed special food’ that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don’t care.
    And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran.’ Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,
    I don’t care!!

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends.? Sooner or later, it’ll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

    If you don’t agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don’t complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add: ‘Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don’t have that problem.’

    I have another quote that I would like to add, AND……..I hope you forward all this.

    Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The British Soldier.
    3. The Canadian Soldier.
    4. The US Soldier, and
    5. The Australian Soldier

    One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM.
    AMEN!

    What altogether too few Westerners realize is that islam was created in blood, all progress of islam was through blood, and I believe, that the destruction of islam will be through blood….THEY won’t have it any other way.
