Ground Zero Mosque: Moribund?


Israel's Haaretz.com site indicates:
Muslim leaders to abandon plans for Ground Zero community center
Insiders say Muslim spiritual leaders behind the controversial initiative are considering giving up on the former World Trade Center location, in a gesture of appeasement.

After weeks of heated debate over plans for an Islamic community center near Ground Zero - the site of the 9/11 attacks on New York - it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down, agreeing to move to a new site.

The decision follows a high-profile campaign against the project that included advertisements on New York buses showing images of the burning Twin Towers, an iconic landmark razed when al-Qaida terrorists flew packed passenger planes into them in 2001. The New York Republican party is also said to be planning a hostile television campaign.

Sources in New York said on Monday that Muslim religious and business leaders will announce plans to abandon the project in the next few days.

But several people familiar with the debate among New York's Islamic activists now claim that the leaders are convinced abandoning the site is preferable to unleashing a wave of bitterness towards Muslims.

They also hope the move will be seen as a show of sensitivity to families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, and to the American public generally.

Another factor in the apparent climbdown is a lack of funds to pay for construction of the center, estimated to cost a hundred million dollars. Backers hope moving it will lead to a wave of support, accompanied by cash donations.

It is also possible that the decision was also influenced by comments made by U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday, in which he appeared to reverse an earlier show of support. Obama said that when he went on record backing the center, he meant only that it was the right of every religious group to establish its own places of worship – but he did not intend to justify building the center specifically at Ground Zero.

And whom can we thank for this change in plans?

We can thank you. And me.

Even Harry Reid, who sees his political life disappearing before his eyes, disagrees with our Great Mr President.

Sometimes our voices can be heard, ladies and gentlemen.

If we are unified and committed and strident.

If I've offended you with my top graphic, then I feel sorry for your ignorance. Islam IS as Islam DOES. I can think of no other explanation for Islam. If YOU can then make your arguments here and therein:

Thank you David. Truly. THIS was the graphic that I've used on prior posts that was so objected-to.

Sorry to those who read me, but I believe it to be oh-so-true and a statement that few would publicly agree. Unless they have no future ahead of them.

Lines have to be drawn, and they will eventually. I am simply drawing mine now and clearly.

Chalk me up in the "early" column.

Stranger things have occurred.

Stay tuned BZ, rumor has it that it's false. The Cordoba house is still a go.

Not sure this is true, BZ. I'd heard it was but then, almost as quickly, heard it wasn't. We'll have to wait and see but I can't see them backing down, not after Hamas getting into the fight.

Man I love being an American. This is proof that when we get together, heads roll. Islam is a horrible religion. The convert or die attitude doesn't give the faithful the right to actually choose it as their religion of choice. In Christianity, one has the freedom to choose. In Islam, if you don't choose, you pay a tax. And if you refuse to pay that tax (the Jiza I think) then you're killed. Its a faith that is based on fear, not love. If any Muslims deny it, then they haven't read any of the Surrahs in the Qur'an.

BZ, Harry Reid is a pandering SON OF A BITCH and he's looking for votes... IF he gets re-elected, that libberpuke SOB will go there and bow his head and make an act of contrition to ALL Islam...

Chris: bingo. You've summed it up.

TF: votes are the ONLY reason he made a statement to contradict Obaka. And isn't it odd, Fred, how some of the Demorats are indicating they'd rather Obaka stay AWAY from their campaigning? I believe that's true in Texas also.

The leftards are arguing that we are being idiots because there are porn shops near the site of Ground Zero. Ummm I was not aware that sex crazed lunatics killed 2,996 people on 9/11.

IF the building of the mosque a few blocks from Ground Zero doesn't happen, it will be because all the controversy surrounding this mosque has awakened more people to research Islam and find out what it really is.

In retrospect, that picture is the epitome of what Islam represents. Not all offended.

As for the mosque not being built, I hope it is true and we actually won a battle against the Muslims, but I am not holding my breath, they are practiced liars, sort of like our president.

This sounds like good news, but I'm not going to relax until some kind of official announcement in made.

We are going to lose our inheritance.

God is moving the Muslims around the world that on the day he chooses to convert them, and the Jews to Catholicism, and I don’t mean modern, Novus Ordo Catholicism, but the Catholicism Jesus Christ established, we will perish.

Mexicans are moving across the United States, and many for the most part are still Catholic; for this reason, Gods punishment of America will not be as severe as it should be.

Freemasonry will be abolished in America. The Holy Angels will smash the Freemasonic Synagogues of Satan beginning with Washington D.C.

Another evil you might want to look at (which by the way comes again from America):
