Here we go Again: Islamic Expansionism Downtown NYC

On October 17Th, I wrote about the Masjid Mosque (Masjid Manhattan), which is looking to for a new location in downtown Manhattan. As their current location is not big enough for the amount of worshippers they have.

On Friday evenings the mosque, which is popular with street vendors and taxi drivers, becomes so crowded that worshipers spill onto nearby sidewalks to pray in what has come to be a community event.

Today I bring up the Assafa Islamic Center, which is in the process of expanding as well.

NEW PROJECT

Assafa owns a vacant lot in one of the most important part of manhattan (Lower East-Side )172 Eldridge Street, between Delancy and Rivington streets, downtown, Manhattan.

A Six story Building has been planed for the center. The center will have arrangements for Jumuah, and the five-time prayers, , NYC BOE Compliant Islamic Education for children, and Islamic Teaching for adults, Islamic seminars, Tafseer, Community services, Islamic library, computer services, marriages, funeral services, and other Islamic services.

There will be appropriate and adequate spaces for sisters as well, Insha-Allah. The plan for A Six-story new building has been approved by NYC Building Department. The negotiated contract cost of the project is approximately $1.85 Million.Insha-Allah.There has been Assafa’s New masjid building ground breaking on March 29,2009.The Construction is in steady progress. The Contractors did excavation work and finished shoring, under pinning and completed footing and made the foundation of basement ,first floor,2nd floor and 3rd floor .

Now blocking work of 4th floor is going on. So at least $800k needed by the end of this year. Our appeal to you is to join us in this great effort, donate generously, and help build Assafa Islamic Center to please Allah (SWT).

If America continues to treat Islam as any other religion, she might as well just pull the trigger already. We will lose this war.

The bigger they are – the harder they fall

If we don’t treat Islam as all other Religions the jihadists will have won.

That is not to say that we shouldn’t try to stop the ground zero mosque, we should. The Shinto Religion would not be allowed to build a shrine 500ft from USS Arizona, anymore than the folks in Manhattan should build their mosque.

New Churches and Synagogues are regularly moved from their proposed locations; these local actions are not a violation of 1st Amendment protections. Treating Islam differently, is.

I think you give Islam more power than they have.

Sharia cannot be enacted in the US. Are you saying Islam will gain enough adherents to be able to control 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/5 of the Several States?

If that happens then America will get what it deserves. More likely the 65 million gun owners will have something to say long before your fears become reality.

Are you sure about that? What about the sharia courts in Texas?

I think you’d better wake up and realize what’s going on around you if you seriously believe that sharia cannot take hold in this country…just recently a NJ judge ruled that spousal abuse was okay in a Muslim household….WAKE UP!

Please read Robert Spencer’s book,
“The Politically Incorrect Truth about Islam and the Crusades” – if you don’t understand Islam, YOU ARE VULNERABLE…They are using our Constitution to take us over…learn about Islamic things like taqiyya – which tells them to LIE in order to fool infidels (that’s ALL of us!)
Please learn the truth or you will not be able to fight back!

Fear and loathing in America.

Neither India nor Europe have the 1st Amendment.

Neither India nor Europe have an armed citizenry.

Neither India nor Europe have the Southern Baptist or Red Neckerson (treat yourself better today), for that matter.

Islam is completely disarmed in the face of such opposition.

If you’d like to talk about securing the borders, I’m all ears. But I won’t violate “we take these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain INALIENABLE rights”.

Inalienable, Unable to be taken away from or given away by the possessor. Freedom of Speech, Religion, Press, Right to gather, et. al.

You postulate inalienable rights to:
1. kill
2. enslave
3. rape
4. pillage
5. conquer and subjugate the entire world.

All of which are immutable and inseverable doctrines of Islam without which the practice of Islam is incomplete.

If they have a right to propagate & practice Islam, then all our rights are abrogated.

Only damned fools & traitors will tolerate that.

Islam is organized crime, it is not a religion.

Those ideologies which threaten to DESTROY that Constitution would constitute TREASON!
Our Founders would NOT allow an ideology of destruction of the very Religious values to which they adhered!

Pislam must be banned completely along with sharia. If just one country takes the first step in this direction, then I think several will follow in their steps soon after. I’m uncertain which country will be the first but since Geert Wilders is a very brave man and very outspoken about pislam, then perhaps it will be the Netherlands that will be our guiding star in the future to come, that is if he manages to take the PM-post in the next election. After all he has stated that he would want to see the koran banned since Mein Kampf is it in his country. Outlawing the koran would basically be the same as banning pislam in itself. But Italy is also in the forefront by wanting to remove pislam as being labelled religion instead of being a political ideology which it is more than anything else.

A few US states have banned or are planning to ban sharia. So they are ahead of Europe in that regard. However, a whole country is another matter. I hope Geert succeeds in The Netherlands but there’ll need to be another election first so he can win more seats.
