UPDATE: Pamela Hall just uploaded this video -- introducing the film........
Our new AFDI documentary, The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks, made its New York premiere this evening to a fierce and energized packed house at the St. Luke's Theatre on West 46th Street in Manhattan. Activists and freedom lovers traveled from as far away as Virginia and Pennsylvania and California to see the film, which does the job the mainstream media won't do in exposing the sinister intent and unsavory ties of the Ground Zero mosque organizers -- and the collusion of that same mainstream media in relentlessly selling the mosquestrosity to an unwilling American public. The standing-room-only audience applauded frequently during the film as they saw freedom fighters like Geert Wilders, Ilario Pantano, John Bolton and so many others standing up to the Islamic supremacist project -- and gave the film a standing ovation as the credits rolled.

9/11 family members Nelly Braginsky, Rosaleen Tallon, Sally Regenhard, Rosemary Cain, and Rosa Leonetti joined Robert Spencer and me for a spirited q-and-a/strategy session after the screening. Sally and Rosaleen gave the astonished crowd the shocking details of the travesty that is the 9/11 victims memorial, which is planning to put the unidentified remains of 9/11 victims seven stories underground inside a museum that charges admission -- and which will include lavish profiles (above ground, of course) of the 9/11 hijackers. Daisy Khan of the Ground Zero Mosque is on the Board of the commission putting together the memorial, charged with making sure the Muslim perspective is represented in every aspect of the memorial. The crowd left newly invigorated and determined to resist the mosque and all Islamic supremacist initiatives.
