If you haven't heard about this issue, you can check it out here from Al Jazeera itself.
I haven't wrote on this topic for a reason. In writing this blog, I try to keep my content as civil as possible. Some issues that infuriate my soul are better left for others to comment/debate on.
However, I do want to say one thing:
On September 11, 2001, there were burning bodies falling from the sky. These fiery bodies smashed into the rotunda of the WTC, the street, vehicles, and other buildings. People who had to mentally decide; was it better to be burned alive by jet fuel or plunge to their death. Can you fathom this decision? Radical Islam, which is becoming more and more of an influence in the Muslim world, is behind the plummeting of those bodies. Fathers. Mothers. Brothers. Sons and Daughters. Friends. Hell was visible on that morning and now Muslim leaders want to build a mosque on the very grounds where 3,000+ people perished in an all out Holy War. No matter how "moderate" and "peaceful" these Muslims declare themselves to be, there is plenty of evidence around the world (and even within our own borders) of radical theology and militant preaching. Islam (radical and not) is not a religion. It's a degrading lifestyle full of horrid human rights violations and the disgusting rule of Sharia Law.
Could you imagine if Israel erected a statue of Hitler in the heart of Jerusalem; Israel's "Big Apple" and most recognized city?
There is no difference.
Let's stop this madness...
By far the best article written in response to (and to question) this mosque and the State Depatment funded "good faith" trip by the impending(?) WTC Imam:
Will the Real Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf Please Stand Up? (MUST READ!)
