Ground Zero Mosque Being Built with Ulterior Motive

As you know by now, there is a proposal to build a Mosque just two blocks away from the ruins of Ground Zero.  While the majority of Muslims are not radical, the Twin Towers and three thousand men, women, and children were murdered in the name of Islam.  Is a Mosque, by itself, offensive to the memories of the fallen?  Perhaps, but I believe, through simple common sense, that the Manhattan Islamic house of worship is being proposed with an ulterior motive.

Let me begin this with statement: I do not believe those in favor of the Mosque are in favor of terrorism, per se.  Are they proposing the Mosque to laud 9/11 over New Yorkers?  I doubt that as well.  However, there seems to be fishy things going on underneath the surface.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the man who is the driving force behind the Mosque, has an odd/shady background, which Hot Air reported on here.  Mr. Rauf is associated with Mahathir Mohamad, an outspoken 9/11 truther and anti-Semite.  Mahathir Mohamad said, quote, "There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make Avatar, they can make anything."  With these connections to the Mosque, it is understandable to be weary of such a project.

Now, play along with me so I can make a point.  Suppose a friend of yours just lost his job and got a divorce, okay?  The thing is, his boss took his wife and then fired him.  Got it?  So let's say you are trying to cheer him up... say you decide throw him a party.  The thing is, you intended to invite your boss to the gathering.  Your pal is upset, though, because your boss reminds him of the boss that canned him and took his sweetheart.  Now, you know that not all bosses are evil, but are you really going to force your friend to interact with your boss, even though you know that it will really bother him?  Of course you wouldn't.

And that's the thing.  Not all Muslims are bad people, but if the families of the victims of 9/11 don't want a Mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero, who can blame them?  If you are throwing a party for your friend to cheer him up, why force him to deal with your boss?  If you are building a Mosque to worship God, why build it near Ground Zero?  The fact that Imam Rauf and his followers are trying to force this Mosque, utterly disregarding the feelings of the victims' families, screams that there is an ulterior motive here.
Furthermore, there has been absolutely no explanation as to why this Mosque must be built here, so close to Ground Zero.  Why can't it be ten blocks away, or twenty?  Is a location so close to the ruins the only place in Manhattan where they can build it?  Surely Mr. Rauf knew of the uproar it would cause.

These things, the force and disregard for feelings, the lack of explanation, and so forth, tell me that there is an ulterior motive behind this Mosque.  What it is, I am not sure.

Don't forget the accusations of 'racism' for anybody who dares think that there's something amiss about this whole setup and says so out loud.

Of course, such accusations are pretty common in the 'post racial' era of 0bama.

I'll accept this mosque the moment that there's a synagogue next to the Kaaba

Kaaba? More like Kaaboom

Living in NYC and being in town on 9/11 I have somewhat of a harder perspective on this. I would let the mosque be built, then burn it to the ground.

For fun.

If you were the devil and wanted to defeat God, would you start a religion of Devil worshipers? Or would you start a religion that speaks of peace for all...all except for non-believers of course, who must be killed...

It's unimaginable, unacceptable and despicable that it is even being considered!!! What is happening to our nation? Our politicians and us as a people. NO, NO, NO to building this Mosque at ground zero, why is this even up for debate? The British comedian said it best! A must listen too!

Ok, how about a few facts that seem to not be taken into account during this unfounded suspicion:

- The proposed plan is NOT a mosque. It is an islamic community center, with such facilities as a pool, fitness center, and yes, a prayer room. It is not being built as a house of worship, but as a facility for a wider community than just Muslims. Its main goal is to help Islam - American relations and dilute all the hate.

- it isn't planned to be built AT the WTC site. Its proposed to be build an entire 2 blocks away. Do you consider FIT to be built at Penn Station?

Not only am I a New Yorker who lost a close family member in the 9/11 tragedy, but I'm also Jewish. Believe me, I continue to be as angry about what happened that day as anyone else can possibly be. However, this community enter shouldn't bother anyone. Don't you appreciate the fact that when you blame all of Islam for 9/11 it grants undeserved legitimacy to a gang of pathetic criminals that use their religion as an excuse to perpetuate the violence they crave? If we are determined to exhibit strength as a nation, whats the best way for us to do that? Becoming so blinded by unfocused rage that we lash out against an entire community of people? Or should we focus that energy on appropriate measures to mitigate the possibility that something like this could EVER happen again? The cultural fissures in this country are wide enough without us driving a further wedge into the gap over something so... inconsequential as a new Islamic community center. I would see the successful completion of the community center in question as a beautiful validation of the recuperative powers and the ideals we all want to believe America is capable of representing in the world.

I'm not saying that all of Islam committed the atrocity of September 11th. However, reasonable people would probably figure it would be at least a little disrespectful to put a German Community Center two blocks away from Auschwitz or an American Cultural Museum two weeks from ground zero at Nagasaki.

laws negate emotions. That's the struggle. The City will barter a deal with the builders to build somewhere else. They'll get their Community center as well as a gift basket. Just 20-30 blocks away.
