Category: Imam Rauf


I have listed a link to “jihad watch” by a British commentator about the mosque and some sound logic against the building of this mosque.  It does make you wonder why the mosque has to be built so close to ground zero and why call it the ” Cordoba House”?.  As we have learned Cordoba is a city in Southern Spain where the muslims built a mosque to symbolize their defeat of the Spaniards.   Also, the mosque is scheduled to be opened on September 11, 2011!!  Now do we really all believe all the above is a coincidence or is there really a plan to in place as outlined n the video?

The diversity and tolerance ground accuse us that are against this mosque as being “intolerant and islamaphobic”.  But remember these are the same people who don’t want us to keep score in our kids little league games because if there is a winner then the losing teams feelings will be hurt, or that 2+2=5 because the students that get it wrong may get their feelings hurt and have low self-esteem!!

So just remember, those of us against this mosque are not bigots and have Islamaphobia!  Do not let this media tell you otherwise because that is their job to do so.  We need to stand up as once voice and say “we do not have a problem with building a mosque but not at ground zero”  Oh yeah, and this Imam that wants to build the mosque says that if it is not built then muslims all over the world will be upset and could lead them to more violence!!   Well for one I am tired of hearing about the “arab street” being upset!! What about the “American street! And the part about more violence??  Is it any more violent than blowing yourself up to kill people, stoning women to death, and chopping off the heads of innocent people!!

Just some thoughts that came to mind.  I have listed the link below.

In the ongoing saga of the mosque being built at ground zero we find out Imam Rauf is on a mideast tour to promote religious tolerance that will cost $16,000 and will include per diem and honorarium and all this is being paid for by the State Department which gets their money from the taxpayers.  The article also mentions this Imam made trips like this during the Bush administration.  So the question I have is why doesn’t the State Department pay for this Imam to meet with the 9/11 families to promote respect and honor for them and to the rest of this nation for the pain he is causing by wanting to build this mosque?

Secondly, here we have the US government paying for this Imam to take these trips to the middle east and sometimes makes me wonder of all this turmoil about this mosque and other issues like this are a smoke screen to hide the real problems in this nation!!  Again, I realize this Imam has the right to build this mosque but the decent thing to do is to build it somewhere else.  But, it seems like our government speaks out of the both sides of its mouth and we as the citizens are left to wonder what really is the truth.  The media play this up and the population gets all in a frenzy and in the meantime we ignore the serious issues of this nation; like it being bankrupt!!

In conclusion I would say that if this Imam wants to promote religious tolerance in the middle east then let those countries pay for it!  Why should our tax dollars be spent to send this Imam to the middle east when he is sticking it in the eye of this nation by wanting to build this mosque at ground zero.
