Join us on September 11th at our 911 Freedom Rally at 2pm at Broadway and Park Place to oppose this 15-story middlefinger to America.
On Friday night, Park51 launched a fundraiser aimed at raising $7 million over the next month and a half, according to WNYC. The deadline for the funds is Sept. 10, which Mr. El-Gamal called “a motivational deadline,” its proximity to the 10th anniversary merely a coincidence.
Grants from who? The victims' families?
WNYC also reports that the project’s name has been changed to PrayerSpace, but that appears to simply be the name of the 2,000-seat chapel planned for the 15-story community center, first known as Cordoba House and more widely called the “ground zero mosque,” while the overall project is still Park51.
The 10th anniversary of 9/11 this fall poses a new challenge for the center. Pamela Geller, a blogger who drove much of the opposition, has called for a protest on Sept. 11 near Park51; her Web site promotes a film, “The Ground Zero Mosque: Second Wave of the 911 Attacks.” The language employed by Ms. Geller and Robert Spencer, another blogger who writes about threats from Islam, is under new scrutiny after their views were cited by Anders Behring Breivik, who confessed to killing scores of people in Norway on July 22 because of his fears of a Muslim takeover; Ms. Geller and Mr. Spencer have denied any responsibility for Mr. Breivik’s actions.
Ann Barnard, shoddy journalist extraordinaire, knows Breivik has nothing to do with our work. Where's Barnard's investigative journalism on the islamic ideology that inspires the slaughter of hundred of thousands the world over? Shame on you, Barnard, and all the women you betray in your "reportage."
Watch this supremacist grifter, Gamal, as he twists, "this project is going to show the world who we are" (and what they are), and then blares out, "is failure an option!" The sparse crowd says no. Gamal yells, "Is failure an option?!?" and answers "No! Takbir!" "Takbir!" (expansionism). He speaks of lectures from Islamic scholars -- like who? Sheik Qaradawi? We know Imam Feisal Rauf is a huge fan of that genocidal imam.
The morphing mosque narrative morphs yet again. Now Gamal calls the mosque "The Prayer Space." lol. A prayer space is a mosque. The bricks of Mecca on the Hudson will be laid on our sacred cemetery, he promises.
We are fighting this mosque. We will be down at Ground Zero on September 11th to protest this cultural obscenity at our 911 Freedom rally. We will fight together. This cause needs you. American needs you. John me, 9/11 family members Alexander and Maureen Santora, who lost their firefighter son Christopher; Sally Regenhard, whose son Christian was killed on 9/11; Nelly Braginsky, who lost her son Alexander; and others. Join Robert Spencer, former U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton; German MP René Stadtkewitz, leader of Germany’s Freedom Party; the courageous ex-Muslim human rights activist Wafa Sultan; war hero and North Carolina Congressional candidate Ilario Pantano; former prosecutor and bestselling author Andrew C. McCarthy; George Demos, whose St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was destroyed on 9/11 and has been frustrated in its attempts to rebuild; Alan T. DeVona, a World Trade Center Patrol Sergeant who was on duty during the 9/11 jihad attack; Canadian free speech activist, author, publisher and radio host Ezra Levant; popular radio host Joyce Kaufman; Darla Dawald, National Director of the Patriot Action Network; James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Sharia Taskforce (VAST); Coptic Christian activist Joseph Nassralla; Iraqi ex-Muslim Michael Paul.
We will follow our rally with a special screening of the ground breaking film, The Ground Zero Mosque: Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks, (more here) at The Actor's Temple Theater on 47th between 8th and 9th Avenues. RSVP to [email protected]
Bring all of your friends. We will have a Q&A with key people and 911 family members engaged in the fight of our lives.
AFDI and its Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) program are encouraging all Americans to stand against the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero and the anti-Semitic Durban III conference that will be held in New York City at the same time, and for American values on the tenth anniversary of the worst attack ever on American soil.
Building the Ground Zero mosque is not an issue of religious freedom, but of resisting an effort to insult the victims of 9/11 and to establish a beachhead for political Islam and Islamic supremacism in New York. Cordoba Initiative board member imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is an open proponent of Sharia, Islamic law, a system that denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law. Given the thousands of triumphal mosques that have been built on the cherished sites of conquered peoples throughout Islamic history, the mosque leaders’ claim that this mosque would be understood differently by Muslims worldwide lack foundation.
The Durban III conference follows upon two previous conferences that scapegoated and demonized the state of Israel in service of Islamic jihad and Islamic supremacist interests. The rally will defend Israel against the defamation to which it will be subjected at this conference. It will also call upon the city to remove roadblocks to the reconstruction of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was destroyed on 9/11 and since then mired in bureaucratic red tape that has prevented its rebuilding – in stark contrast to the help Mayor Bloomberg and other city officials have given to the Ground Zero Mosque project.
AFDI/SIOA is one of America’s foremost organizations defending human rights, religious liberty, and the freedom of speech against Islamic supremacist intimidation and attempts to bring elements of Sharia to the United States.
