SIOA (Stop Islamization of America) and our New York leader, Pamela Hall, are organizing a coalition and action plan to fight the grotesque plans to build a monster mosque on the hallowed ground of the worst attack on American soil in US history.
Listen to the imam in this video. Pure deceit. Why isn’t he building an islamic center dedicated to expunging the Koran, hadiths etc., of their prescribed violent teachings? Tim Brown is arguing against the mosque. I interviewed him here. Tim Brown is co-founder of theBravest.com. Mr. Brown is a retired, decorated 20-year FDNY firefighter, and a survivor of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, a first responder to the 1993 terrorist attack on the WTC, and a veteran of the New York Urban Search & Rescue Task Force team that responded to the 1995 terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City.
Who is with us? We are formulating a concrete action plan. Monster Mosque Pushes Ahead in Shadow of World Trade Center Islamic Death and Destruction
We will rally, we will hold our elected officials accountable, we will not let this stand. Where did the funding for this monster come from?
Check out Pamela H’s excellent sum up on the mosque here. A comprehensive, exhausting indictment. And check out all previous Atlas coverage of this monstrosity at Atlas here.

We saw how, in the case of Major Nidal Hasan of Ft. Hood, it turned out that three of the original participants in 9/11 had listened to the same preacher Major Hasan listened to: a man with a radical violent Islamic website now operating out of Yemen to radicalize American Muslims. In such a context,knowing more about the Imam overseeing a potential multimillion mosque at the World Trade Center site is essential to the story. Nearly 3,000 people were deliberately killed there – and the New York Times is papering over what is about to be built on the site in a nice, beatific pseudo-profile of the Imamoverseeing the mosque? Limiting access to this Imam to some nice quotes, showing him nattily dressed in a suit, and describing him merely as a Sufi, is vacuous, crafted and couched in public relations spin to obscure rather than explain. ‘’What happened that day was not Islam’’ is all that the Times quotes the Imam saying — a rather lame comment given the enormity of his ambition and the iconic status of where he wants to put his mosque.
What happened that day is pure Islam, and that statement from Imam Rauf is pure taqiya, deception to advance islam.
This from Mosque At the World Trade Center: Muslim Renewal Or Insult Near Ground Zero:
The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times — which put the story on its front page Wednesday — that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into ‘’an Islamic center near the city’s most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zero’s more unexpected and striking neighbors.’’
The 61-year-old Imam said he paid $4.85 million for it — in cash, records show. With 50,000 square feet of air rights and enough financing, he plans an ambitious project of $150 million, he said, akin to the Chautauqua Institution, the 92 Street Y or the Jewish Community Center.
The origins of such monies are unexplained; neither are the countries or entity advancing such huge donations. Most US mosques, including many in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are funded directly or indirectly by Saudi Arabia the country to which 15 of the 19 hijackers who bombed the World TradeCenter belonged. The UAE, Qatar and Iran are other major sponsors across the USA.
The money trail is an important question that must be answered by the Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg with more than a bland comment by one of his spokesmen, Andrew Brent, who quipped to the Times, “If it’s legal, the building owners have a right to do what they want.”
At the moment, the location is not designated a mosque, but rather an overflow prayer space for another mosque, Al Farah, at 245 West Broadway in TriBeCa, where Imam Feisal is the spiritual leader. Call this creeping annexation. On 9/11, the Burlington building, with 80 employees in its basement, is where a piece of a plane plunged through the roof, from either Flight 11 or Flight 175 crashing into the south tower at 9:03 a.m..
One of the investors for future oncoming funds is listed as the Cordoba Initiative, defined as an ‘’interfaith group’’ – and founded by Imam Feisal. Cordoba is the name militant Muslims often invoke when they recall the glory of Muslim empire in the centuries they occupied Spain.
As a former New York Times and Wall Street Journal correspondent, and as a New York Sun columnist who covered Islamic Fundamentalism extensively overseas and in the USA, I find the facts oddly lacking. The story as reported fails to answer, and avoid asking, so many pertinent questions.
The source of money matters as a significant part of the hundreds of mosques being built and already erected in this country double up as cultural Islamic centers for distributing literature– Islamist propaganda in fact—from Bay Ridge Brooklyn to Detroit, and for schooling growing Muslim minorities. They house Imams of unknown origin and education, many of whom do not speak a word of English but preach in Arabic and Urdu — radical messages, it often turns out.
As a reporter familiar with the Arab communities of the USA, I doubt the faithful fork out all that money for mega mosques, and if they did, the mayor’s office should prove it, not merely accept someone’s say so. It is an established fact that a significant percentage of the mosques built in the USA in the past two decades are receiving a disproportionate amount of their funds not only from the Saudis, but also the UAE, Qatar and Iran — all problematic Islamists activist nations. The government just discontinued work on a major Iranian-funded mosque and center in New York City, which had operated under the radar since the days of the good old Shah of Iran under the auspices of the Pahlavi Foundation, and has beenowned since 1979 by the Mullahs of Iran.
The context here is that 15 of the 19 perpetrators of the attacks — on the very site where this new mosque shall rise — came from Saudi Arabia.
Stay tuned — more to come.
UPDATE: RALLY 9/10/10 – BOOK YOUR PLANE, TRAIN, GAS UP THE AUTO.
UPDATE: bACK IN 2004, Rauf blamed the Christians for Muslim violence and domination.

This is nothing more than a slap in the face to America. What happened to this country that they would even allow this to be considered in the first place?
So, where is everyone here going to escape to when the USA finally crumbles into a third world existence? I am trying to narrow down my list.

“They” are trying to overwhelm us (Cloward-Piven script) We are Americans, and shan’t react according to their expectations. We must remain strong in mind and body and be ever vigilant as we shall be fighting on many fronts.

edit: we must remain strong in body, mind and most importantly, spirit!

makes me cry again…finally I visited the site this year, cried as I approached the area,thinking of the destruction and senseless loss of life, recalling the event that really has changed our modern times…but now to see these crackpots allowing this construction so close to the historic and hallowed ground…tears are not enough for this outrageous appeasment. How disgusting. How frightening. AND How satisfying for leaches, vampires and frothing zombies…

Cordoba was the seat of the Caliphate, and the location of the Grand Mosque.
It was the center of Islamic Europe.
Posted by: Pastorius | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 02:10 PM
His entire statement is taquiya!!!
Especially the part about the majority of 9/11 families supporting the building of this mosque!
News flash, buddy; not every American is gullible with the head lodged up the @$$!!!
Posted by: Wrial Huden | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 02:42 PM
Yes it was the center of Islamic Andalusia, the Arab name for Spain under Islam.
Of course Hamas and Al Queda still demand the return of ‘Al Andalus” to the Ummah the same way they demand the return of Palestine and the Balkans.

Disgusting!!! This is an insult beyond comprehension. What say we fund some synagogues and churches in Muslim countries? Whats that? Oh, it is against their dark ages, hate-filled, vicious law in most Muslim countries.
I would rather not see any more mosques built here, but guess that can’t be stopped. Just don’t have to put one up as a friggin memorial to the muslim cockroaches who killed so many innocent Americans, as well as other innocents.
Investigate the funding!!! This stinks to high Heaven.
This cannot be allowed to happen. We are not Europe (yet). When are we as a people going to open our eyes and see the creeping infestation by this vile cult?

I don’t understand New Yorkers.

I do not understand how Kosher works, but if it allows pork products. Then go to the mosque site and have a wiener roast and BBQ pork ribs. Do it in good faith of nuturing a friendly meet the local jihadist event.

@armaros. So I am not the only who did read Al Andaluz. I didn’t like it. I hope this will not happen again. No more Mosques in Cristian countries.
Posted by: mrs. B.A. Reyes | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 03:43 PM
I have emailed Mayor Bloomberg and the Board. I was respectful but direct in my feelings regarding this travesty. I hope everyone on this site takes action and does not sit back. I am not sure of the planning for when the actual construction will start but we must STOP this before they start any construction. It must be stopped dead in its tracks!
Understand the SYMBOLISM of such a building be built on this sacred ground. For Islam the SYMBOLISM is conquest.
THIS MUST BE STOPPED.

Just Try Building A Cathedral In Saudi Arabia. This is the first step toward giving New Yorkers and Manhattan Dhimmitude status.I wouldn’t be surprised if Iranian money was behind the secret funding of this. The people of Manhattan need to lay down the gauntlet and stop this slap across the face of all Americans.
When will we stop the political correctness that weakens us…Islam is the enemy! It is incubated, hatched and nurtured from behind the walls of the Mosques across the land . They should all be considered enemy encampments and targets. It’s time to show them the same intolerance that they show Jew’s and Christian’s in the middle east and around the world. Stand up against the real enemy , stop Islam!

I’m from the Netherlands, dont hold that against me…but this news shockes me, frightening, i cant believe New Yorkers or any Americans could approve this.
If even the US of A will surrender, how the hell would a small country like the Netherlands ever get rid of Islamic imperialism!?
Posted by: John | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 04:09 PM
Islam want to keep poking their finger in the eyes of the American people. Sorry, but I can’t be polite to sheer stupidity. The decisions being made by these damn fools are an abomination to the people of New York, let alone Americans. WHO placed these fools on this commission, and why??? Do they have any realization whatsoever who the United States are at war with??? Do the fools know why we’re at war??? Oh I forgot, they’re going to appease them, and they’ll just magically and peacefully disappear! BARF!!!

A very good idea, why still longer wait untill every American prays with his butts in the ir 5 times a day. Why not now, now you have a cheating muslim as president who told you to be a christian. LOL the christian barack HUSSEIN obama.
So build that mosk with the Saudi oil money and let the terrorists pray on the dead bodies from your country men. Sieg Heil b HUSSEIN o.

Stupid Americans, don’t you understand what’s going on in your country right now ?? An Islamitic president who is not allowed by constitutional law to be president !!! Fucking moslim invaders with their own camps and weapons !! Why are you let this happen, are you guys sleeping ?? The only thing you need is REVOLUTION, kick all this motherfockers out of your country, together with their focking moscs
Posted by: Rework | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 04:43 PM
why hold back? Let’s authorize the building of a small residential-size mosque NEXT DOOR TO THE HOMES OF ALL THE FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO DIED ON 9/11….. THOUSANDS OF LITTLE MOSQUES TO SHOW HOW TOLERANT AMERICA IS… I know, right?
Posted by: Dave in Dallas | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 04:50 PM
This is a big insult, and the lying imam devil knows where to hit the body of america, where the body hurts the most, at 9/11. This is psychological warfare.
The West need to prohibit moslims from entering into their countries and built their warcastle (mosques). We can do that by stating that islam is not a religion, but nazism, a political agenda for apartheid, which is the thruth.
Posted by: Sam | Friday, May 07, 2010 at 05:10 PM
AMERICA WAKE UP!!! Please open your eyes….
This is a really discusting idea. This shows how brutale the islam is!
Step by step, they’re overruling our free world…
I’m from Europe, the Netherlands, and this brutality is also going on in my country.
WHAT! All over Europe islam is trying to be THE BOSS!!
Belgium, GB, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France. In these and my country is a ‘little jihad’ going on. And our politici are blind, looking the other way. Obama is not looking at the bad side of islam, he loves the islam.
Islam will overrule the world.
WHAT THE WEST NEEDS TO KNOW…
