Mosque o’ the twin tower’s site….

August 1, 2010 at 2:57 pm 4 comments

Defenders of the planned project to build a mosque adjacent to the remains of the Twin Towers in New York are quick to say “Hey, there were Muslims that also died in New York on 9-11-2001“.

They were just clearing off their future mosque building site

They were just clearing off the building site for their future mosque 

This is actually true, and by doing just a brief search on this on the web, I now know that I can give you the names and photos of at least 19 of these Muslim  “victims” who likely died that day.

And, for the record they were mostly Saudi citizens, not Sadam’s Iraqi Elite armed forces. Saudi Arabian citizens were given a clean pass flight out of America on September 12 with no questions asked on what they were doing here or what information they could provide on any people involved with the hijackings.

Forgive? Never  –  Forget? Sure, but it will happen a few moments after I forgive.

    The best response I heard re this issue was in the Wall Steet Journal. I was in the breakfast room at the Hyatt Place, Reno so it must have been around the first of August and I don’t remember the writer, but his point was: Several years some Catholic nuns set up shop in Auschwitz to do some praying for the WWII killers and the killed. Several Jewish organizations objected to Christians in the charnel house so Pope Whoever sent the nuns a letter telling them their intentions were honorable, but they had to be sensitive to the feelings of those wronged. The nuns understood this and left.

    This is the point about the Muslims and their mosque. They are being insensitive and, while they have a legal right to build there, they should really rise above legalities and see the emotional conflict their presence brings. Alas, Obama choses to see it as a religious rights thing and totally misses the point.

    As always, the charming Ms. Lulu is right on the money. This is really about common decency more than relating to any sort of rights issue, but I guess that since “common decency” are nearly unknown words in the political world, they don’t garner any votes.

    The common decency you speak of smacks of coddling nascent prejudiced beliefs. What is it about building a mosque a few blocks away from ground zero that makes it insensitive? What about it will offend the families affected by 9/11?

    My feeling is that it won’t, really, unless they equate all Muslims with the terrorists that took down the buildings and murdered all those people. And if they do that, then they are bigots. And I think I’ll got ahead and stand in the non-bigot corner and say that I’d rather the mosque be built right where they’ve planned it and we can maybe get back to being America.

    Also – the mosque site is nowhere in that photo you posted. You’re misinforming the public. Come to NY and check it out.

    Actually, HMann, building a mosque, church, whatever, where ever offends me equally, no matter where it’s to be located. I’m very happy living in the 21st Century and believe that those that are in need an invisible friend to guide them would do well to consider joining me.
    Also, you’re correct about the location, the photo I used was truncated a bit and lost some real estate.
    I haven’t been to NYC since the pre-9/11 days, I miss it a lot but the death of my agent / friend in 2006 had me too upset with her stories of angst over breathing in the dust of her friends (which I believe killed her) to be able to return.
    As an American living in what my Droid GPS system confirms is America, I have to say that I’ve never stopped living in America, so I have no need to “get back” to it, but thanks for your perspective on this.
