Permits should not be granted to build even one more mosque in the United States of America, let alone the monstrosity planned for Ground Zero. This is for one simple reason: each Islamic mosque is dedicated to the overthrow of the American government.Each one is a potential jihadist recruitment and training center, and determined to implement the “Grand Jihad” of which Andy McCarthy has written. Here is the strategy, in their own words, in the words of “An Explanatory Memorandum” circulated by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1991 which outlines “the General Strategic Goal” for the Islamic movement “in North America.” Read it and shudder: Muslims “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions…It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny…” (emphasis mine) Because of this subversive ideology, Muslims cannot claim religious freedom protections under the First Amendment. They are currently using First Amendment freedoms to make plans to destroy the First Amendment altogether. There is no such thing as freedom of religion in Islam, and it is sheer and utter folly for Americans to delude themselves into thinking otherwise. Ask the Hutaree Christian militia how much good it did them to plaster Bible verses all over their website while plotting attacks against government officials. They are currently pondering the limits of the First Amendment, as they should, from the inside of a jail cell. The First Amendment cannot be used as a cloak for subversive activity. Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute has demonstrated that the Saudi Arabian government has supplied educational materials to all of its American mosques that direct Muslims to spill the blood of the infidel Christians and their Jewish counterparts. The $100 million mosque on Ground Zero, a $100 million memorial to the glorious Muslim martyrs of 9/11 and built to celebrate the glorious conquest of Allah on that day, will almost certainly be built with lots and lots of Saudi money. The mosque’s imam, Faisal Rauf, will soon launch a fund-raising tour for this monument to slaughter in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Dubai. Even worse, American taxpayers are paying for this elaborate money-grubbing tour, money Rauf intends to use to destroy this nation from within. It’s hard to imagine anything more grotesque. Rauf refuses to condemn Hamas, and has said that America was an “accessory” to what happened on 9/11. He also helpfully blamed the U.S. for Osama bin Laden. 9/11 is all our fault, you see. The Saudis already provide the funding for 80% of the mosques in America, sowing their seeds of subversion and violent overthrow on a weekly basis in one American city after another. And it’s not just in major metropolitan areas. Murfreesboro, Tennessee is engulfed in a community controversy over Muslim plans to build a jihadist recruitment center (aka a mosque) there. Bottom line: it’s suicidal for America to allow terrorist training cells to crop up all over the fruited plain. And each mosque is an actual or potential terrorist training cell, as Anwar al-Awlaki has demonstrated. His north Virginia mosque was used to radicalize three of the 9/11 jihadis as well as the Major Hasan who shot up the infidel idolaters at Fort Hood. Germany finally got around this week, nine years after the fact, to shutting down the mosque which aided and abetted 9/11 attacker Mohammed Atta. The reason? It’s still in the radicalization business, and has been, week after week, for the last decade. American Muslims are being radicalized every single day in American mosques. We are sowing the seeds of our own destruction by allowing these improvised explosive devices to be established in community after community. If a mosque was willing to publicly renounce the Koran and its 109 verses that call for the death of infidels, renounce Allah and his messenger Mohammed, publicly condemn Osama bin Laden, Hamas, and Abdelbaset al Megrahi (the Lockerbie bomber), maybe then they could be allowed to build their buildings. But then they wouldn’t be Muslims at that point, now would they?
