100,000 Square Foot Ground Zero Islamic Center Gets Approval!

First of all, this project is complete sign of disrespect by Muslims, but they are only concerned with advancing Islam. They can preach the Islam is peaceful line, all they want. It is just not true. Secondly, the board members that unanimously approved the Islamic center, are obviously uninformed on Islam. I guess that it would of been too much trouble for them, to do some actual research on the issue. We have to continue to educate, or Muslims will continue to destroy the West from within. It is up to us!
(Just look at how this building, would dominate the block.)

Mosque to Open Two Blocks From World Trade Center
May 5, 2010

The downtown community has mixed feelings about plans for an Islamic center near Ground Zero, but Community Board 1 approved the plan Wednesday night.

FINANCIAL DISTRICT —

The old Burlington Coat Factory building on Park Place has sat shuttered and empty since the landing gear from a hijacked plane crashed through the roof on 9/11.

Now, a Muslim group hopes to build a mosque and cultural center there, replacing what they see as the worst of Islam with the best.

“We have a vision that is opposite the vision of the extremists,” said Daisy Khan, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, the group behind the center. “We want to be a driving force for the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan.”

Community Board 1’s Financial District Committee embraced the center’s message of tolerance and voted unanimously Wednesday night to support the project.

“Finally we can get that ugly space taken care of,” said Pat Moore, a member of the committee who lives nearby.

A preliminary rendering of the 13-story Cordoba House on Park Place.But other members of the community, who did not attend Wednesday’s meeting, want the mosque to find a different home.

“It doesn’t belong down here,” said Rosemary Cain, whose firefighter son was killed on 9/11. “It makes me sick to think the city would allow such a thing.”

While Cain acknowledged that “not every person who is Muslim is a terrorist,” she thinks the Muslim community as a whole never sufficiently declaimed the attacks.

John Schmidt, 29, a construction worker who is rebuilding the World Trade Center, also got angry when he heard about the plans.

“No way,” he said. “Muslims bombed the towers. Why would they put a mosque next to the Freedom Tower?”

Khan envisions the $100 million, 100,000-square-foot Cordoba House as much more than a mosque: She wants it to be a gathering place for the entire downtown community, including residents, workers and tourists, whether they are Muslim or not.

The 13-story center, which could open as soon as 2013 at 45 Park Place, will include a 500-seat auditorium, a basketball court, a swimming pool and a kitchen for cooking classes. Khan hopes to host interfaith conferences and panels along with more lighthearted events like a Muslim Idol talent competition.

Iqbal Hossain Chowdhury, 42, who runs a newsstand on Park Place, said the center would provide much-needed education for Muslims as well as non-Muslims.

“People read the Koran and they don’t know the meaning,” said Chowdhury, who is Muslim. “It is good for them to learn — to learn is best.”

Matt Migeal, 39, who was selling 9/11 photo books in front of the World Trade Center on Wednesday, also thought it was good for the mosque to move in.

“This didn’t happen because of Muslim people,” Migeal said, gesturing toward the site. “Terrorism and Islam have nothing to do [with each other].”

The Cordoba Initiative already runs a mosque on West Broadway and started holding weekly services in the new Park Place space last year. As the services grow, they could attract up to 2,000 people, Khan said.

The Cordoba Initiative is already working with the NYPD on security.

Khan said she has heard very little criticism of the center so far, though she added that Saturday’s attempted Times Square bombing didn’t help.

“Events like [Times Square] always set us back,” Khan said. “Leaders have to push back in the other direction, and that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Hey Matt, the Islamic scriptures clearly prove you wrong. Please stop talking about what you do not know. Thanks!

This is the constant plan towards the holy sites of other religions other than Islam… this being to take the holy place and squat there with their mosque's.

No shit, but if you ask American's what the Barbary Coast Wars where, I'd bet not one in one hundred knows anything about it..this is where we have failed as a nation. Our nation has dumbed it's self down to the lowest comon denominator by trying to keep certain groups of kids in school. It's all about intellectual, moral and cultural equivalency thinking. Everyone is equal. There is an Arab saying " if all are equal, all are weak", boy if that dosen't smake of Islam nothing else does. Some how we as a nation need to snap out of this stupidity..Christopher, thanks for your site, you do a great service to free thinking..elmore

This is simply unbelievable, a smack in the face after the mass murder of 9/11 by Muslims. These people have no shame. I am disgusted to read this and hope something can be done to prevent it. Where are the Americans in NYC willing to stand up for America? Mosques offend me greatly. Islam offends me greatly. Why are American sensitivies not respected? It's just too much to bear. Everyday, it is more affronts, more terrorist attacks. We are having this disgusting religo-political ideology shoved down our throats while Christians are being murdered and persecuted in Muslim countries. It's just amazing how they run roughshod all over us. What is it going to take for Americans to stand up and say enough?

The all encompassing nature of Islam makes it not on par with other religions. Just the fact that there is no separation between Mosque and state in Islam should disqualify it from being allowed to expand in the U.S.A.

Some states are already taking steps to outlaw sharia law. The Arizonans have done what they've done about illegals because they've recognized that the Fed ain't going to so squat….Liberals are pissing themselves because states aren't supposed to do this stuff on their own….the sheep are all just supposed to follow the lead of their "elites" and dolike like Obama says.

If this plan is realized it must become the worlds largest minaret! I wonder how the native new yorkers will react when the muezzin blasts out in the wee early morning 24/7 365 days a year? Believe me, this is an intended insult to the amriki kuffar. Know thy place in thy gutter, filthy dhimmi!

Btw one way to stop it is to pollute the grounds by digging down pig-carcasses all around the area. Rumour has it that no mosque can ever be built on grounds that has been defiled that way. It's a method worth trying if no protest or petition works out.

Islam is an enemy invader because it is a religion of war. Islam should be outlawed in America and most certainly denied the first amendment because it is an imposter — positioning to devour its "prey" in this case America.

Islam is not a religion of war, violence is strictly prohibited in Islam. The terrorists who claim to be Muslim and do things 'in the name of Islam' are nothing but ignorant fools who have let their culture and moronic 'forefathers' influence them to kill themselves etc and essentially buy themselves tickets straight to Hell.

One of the biggest sins in Islam is suicide, because life is a gift from God.

The name Cordoba Initiative should be enough to ring alarm bells to those who know. For those who don't, read this earlier article:

https://loganswarning.com/2010/04/02/muslims-arres

Arselifters have a long history of building moskes over the religious sites of others. The Cordoba moske is one example. They've done it everywhere – Hindu and Buddhist temples in Asia, Christian churches and Jewish synagogues in the Middle East, etc.

Its their way of stamping their dominance over a place. If they could get away with it, they would have built this right on the WTC site.

It should be stopped at all costs or arselifters will lord it over New York.

Our “leaders” are the congress of fallen Rome. They have let them in and I am most certain that just as it is too late for Europe, it is for America. When Political correctness is more important than national security and borders, it is too late. The cheap whore media is in bed with or Gov and they work hand in hand at ruining this nation. Kruchev was right, America will die from within and without a bullet ever being fired. Our lazy and brain dead politicians do not have a clue how serious this is.

Yes, that's basically what it is to them. That's why they need to be banned.

Or copy their own laws and use them against them. So, just as they prohibit new churches or repairs to old ones, the West should ban new moskes and repairs to old ones.

I read a report a few months ago (from Gotham Gazette, I think) about some arselifters in new York who complained about a bar near their madrassa (or whatever it was. It wasn't a moske though).

Apparently, there's a law in New York banning bar within 200 meters of a religious building. The bar was there first, of course. They lost their law suit because their building wasn't a moske.

It was an interesting article but I've been unable to find it since.

New York needs to change its laws.
Otherwise the muslims will put up a mosque at every street corner and will thereafter want every other activity in that area to cease 5 times a day.

The intention of this building is to add insult to injury. It's the islamic way. It's a spit in the face of all people who suffered so terribly on 9/11. They could build this elsewhere out of respect but they have no respect for anyone or anything. The are incapable of becoming civilized and this building proves it. This is a bully giving the nice kid in the schoolyard another punch.

The money to build it is coming from Soddy Barbaria, of that we can be sure. Muslims will laugh at Americans and love the irony; Americans are buying the oil with money that's paying for this building!

It is Muslim whackamole! Dudley England just managed to vote down the huge mega mosque Muslims had planned to build there. So a NYC planning commission gives approval for a mega mosque popping up here. This makes me so angry I could spit!!

Stop the Muslim murderers and stop their infiltration into our culture now!!! They do not deserve to build anything to do with Islam anywhere near the 9-11 site. Their arrogance and disrespect is showing BIG TIME. Send them back to the hell holes they came from. What if Japan wanted to build a pagoda on top of our WWII sunken ships in Hawaii? What if Dubai wanted to turn the Cole into a dining ship for Arab tourists? It is the same thing. This is Barbarism at its worst. Islamists are intent on getting their disgusting and satanic crapweasel foot in the door of the biggest US city. If patriotic Americans in general and New Yorkers in particular, do not try to stop this, then we are all cowards!!!

What most people don’t see is that when muslims would conquer an area they would build a mosque in that location saying they control it… what they would be doing by building a mosque where they plan is disrespecing us as AMERICANS and basically saying they are conquering the WTC location we can not allow this
