It didn't take long for the Cordoba Initiative Mosque (AKA Park 51) developers to show their true colors.  As soon as there is opposition to anything Muslims want to do, the response is always threats of violence, often followed by acts of violence.  Until the West hardens up throws these threats back into the face of Islam, there will be no end of demands and loss of freedom.

What have you done to prevent the overthrow of Western society by Islam?

What will you tell your children when they ask why they are dhimmis?

Where will you be when the Jihad hits the street?


Imam Handling of Islamic center plan a matter of national security

September 09, 2010|By the CNN Wire Staff

The religious leader behind plans to build an Islamic center and mosque a few blocks from New York's ground zero said Wednesday night that America's national security depends on how it handles the controversy.

"If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse," Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told CNN's Soledad O'Brien on "Larry King Live."

"The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack."

But some critics decried his assessment.

"The whole national security thing: that's a veiled threat," Andy Sullivan, a union construction worker who wants all New York construction workers to boycott the proposed Islamic center, said on CNN's "AC 360" Wednesday night. "He's saying 'you make me move' and, guess what, the whole radical Muslim world is coming after us."

"This is a turf war," Sullivan said.

The imam, who repeatedly said his mission was to promote peace and build a bridge among faiths, said he was also speaking about "radicals" on both sides of the debate on the Islamic center. "Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it."
"The battlefront is between moderates of all sides ... and the radicals on all sides," he said.

Moving the project to another location would strengthen Islamist radicals' ability to recruit followers and will likely increase violence against Americans, the imam said.

But Rosaleen Tallon, whose firefighter brother died on 9/11, finds that notion ironic.

"On 9/11, it didn't take a mosque for extremists to come and attack the World Trade Center and kill my brother," Tallon said on "AC 360." "What I'm finding here to be very disturbing is that now ... this mosque has to go up or there will be retribution."
