One of my readers in the Netherlands filled me in on where some of the financing came from that the terror-tied Imam Rauf used to buy an historic landmark and demolish it to build an Islamic supremacist mega mosque at Ground Zero: the Christian Democrat party in Holland.
I am sure that I can say that on behalf of the 3,75 million voters in the Netherlands for PVV (The centre-right political party from Geert Wilders) I offer you and your friends an apologies for our present christian (CDA) government.
This because they granted a million Euro ( US $ 1.290.000 ) to the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) from imam Faisal Abdur Rauf who intends to build a mosque next to the grounds of the 9/11 massacre the killed over 3000 innocent people. Don't ask me why.
Geert Wilders himself demanded today in our House of Parliament from our CDA Minister of Foreign affairs:
"Do you acknowledge that it is absurd -just at Ground Zero- to build a mosque, and that this is also an insult to (the next of kin of) the victims of 9-11? If not, why not?
So the Netherlands are aware of these building plans. But we don't understand how the US-(local) government can be so ignorant about the symbolic value for muslims to build an other house of worship to Alla, right there in front of this specific location.
Many of us are also aware of the many moslim 'enclaves' that already exist in the USA and we admire your personal efforts to stop Ground Zero to become one too.
UPDATE: Correction from Rissing:
Re: the 3,75 million voters, it's like this.
At the elections in the beginning of June, the PVV won 24 seats in the Dutch house of parliament which holds 150 seats.
Today the polls putt the PVV at 35 seats, representing 2.2 million voters.
These 2.2 in turn represent 3,75 million people of the total Dutch population of 16 million.
3,75 must be 2,2 million voters !
My mistake, sorry.
