Not all critics of the proposed mosque next to Ground Zero are redneck bigots. Our sometimes ally the Muslim Canadian Congress makes their case.
“Let’s not forget that a mosque is an exclusive place of worship for Muslims and not an inviting community centre. Most Americans are wary of mosques due to the hard core rhetoric that is used in pulpits. And rightly so. As Muslims we are dismayed that our co-religionists have such little consideration for their fellow citizens and wish to rub salt in their wounds and pretend they are applying a balm to sooth the pain.”
I always thought a Muslim group that purports to promote ‘tolerance’, as is the case with the proposed Cordoba House, would want to stay away from the former WTC site because of the obvious backlash. While I support their right to build whatever they want wherever they can, I see them as shit disturbers who don’t care at all about dialogue with other faiths. Tolerance involves empathy and compromise and the Cordoba House clearly has none.
The article ends on a bitter note but I still like their style.
“As for those teary-eyed, bleeding-heart liberals such as New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and much of the media, who are blind to the Islamist agenda in North America, we understand their goodwill.
Unfortunately for us, their stand is based on ignorance and guilt, and they will never in their lives have to face the tyranny of Islamism that targets, kills and maims Muslims worldwide, and is using liberalism itself to destroy liberal secular democratic societies from within.”
