New York City Mosque Near 9/11 Site Is Mask For Political Correctness
Written by  {ga=admin}

jeffcrouere_150_200Today, the controversial mosque near the 9/11 site moved one step closer to reality. A New York City panel voted to allow the project to continue. The panel decided that a 152 year old building near the proposed site is not a historical landmark and can be demolished. The panel disregarded claims that the building should be preserved because it was damaged by airplane debris during the 9/11 attack.

It is amazing that in the United States today our country is debating whether a massive mosque should be built near the sacred 9/11 site. This project is an affront to the family members of the almost 3,000 victims of the terror attack.

First and foremost, city officials should be following the wishes of family members who have already suffered due to radical Islamic terrorism. It is lunacy to allow a 13-story $100 million Mosque to be built on such a sensitive site. In fact, no mosque should be built in any location until all questions are answered about the financing and support of the project.

In America today, politicians are so concerned about political correctness that rational decisions are not made. Politicians don't want to offend Muslims or other minority groups, but, in the process, the views of the overwhelming majority of citizens are overlooked.

Supposedly, this mosque will be only for moderate Muslims to congregate, but the location is not approved by the vast majority of New Yorkers. One group that did approve of the decision was the American Civil Liberties Union who applauded the panel for "not letting bias get in the way of the rule of law."

Yet, the rule of law should allow for local residents to determine what type of buildings are wanted in a particular community. If a project is an affront to the majority of community members, it should not be allowed. For example, a strip club would not be wanted in many residential neighborhoods in this country. It would attract the wrong type of crowd for families living in suburbia. Similarly, a mosque might attract the wrong type of people to the site of the 9/11 attacks. Extremists may be attracted to the site to commit additional acts of terror.

Sadly, millions of radical Muslims harbor hatred toward this country and all of the values we represent. These radical want to kill innocent Americans and bring about the destruction of this country. Do we have any guarantee that these enemies of the United States would not be able to visit this proposed mosque and threaten Americans?

The Anti-Defamation League questioned the funding of the mosque and potential connections with "groups whose ideologies stand in contradiction to our shared values." There are just too many unanswered questions and too many reasons to oppose this project.

The fact that New York City, led by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the ACLU, is rushing ahead with the project says a great deal about the strength of political correctness in this country and the many problems that lie ahead in our battle against Islamic extremism. –
