Ground Zero Mosque - #1998 - The Ground Zero Mosque Should be Stopped - Redstate

If you read no further, know this: RedState supports the Anti-Defamation League in its opposition to the so-called “Ground Zero mosque.” The ADL is right on all counts: in its rejection of bigotry, its affirmation of American religious freedom, and its declaration that common decency demands the end of this effort. As the ADL notes, this is “not a question of rights, but a question of what is right.”The “Ground Zero mosque” is not right. It’s important to understand why. PART I: A “GROUND ZERO MOSQUE”? A primary talking point in defense of the “Ground Zero mosque” these days is that it is not, in fact, at Ground Zero. Sharif el-Gamal, its lead developer, is now giving interviews in which he emphasizes, “We are not at Ground Zero.”.......The fact is that the groups behind the “Ground Zero mosque” / Cordoba House / Park51 chose the site explicitly for its proximity to Ground Zero, and then spent months boasting about it in the press.......Feisal Abdul Rauf, Daisy Khan, Sharif el-Gamal, and their liberal apologists want you to understand this: they represent Islam in America, and rejecting their plans means rejecting that. Worse, it means a win for the terrorists. Worse, it means you’re a horrible bigot. Worse, it means “extremism” wins, and more 9/11s are inevitable. Because the Cordoba Initiative and ASMA are the sole legitimate representatives of “moderate” Islam, and this project is their only hope. None of these propositions are logically defensible, but they are effective emotional and intellectual blackmail.  Read more....  This is the most detailed article I have seen yet on why this mosque is being proposed on this site, please read.
