9/11 MOSQUE-Worship Place or Victory Flag? – By Sandra Gluschankoff


By Guest Blogger: SANDRA GLUSCHANKOFF — Argentinian (read bio)

A few years ago my husband invited me to a convention he was attending in Europe, my favorite travel destination in the world. He handed me the catalogue for me to make the necessary arrangements for the trip, and suddenly I froze.

Berlin?” I couldn’t for the life of me travel to Germany. Having been to Europe several times before, Germany was always a country I avoided. Germany! Many emotions invaded me until I hit the point of fear.

The idea of traveling to that country gave me an uneasy and anxious feeling. It is the birthplace of one of the major massacres in humanity, and where many of my ancestors were either murdered in extermination camps or suffered the devastating results of vicious persecution at war.

What disturbed me was beyond the history of the country. It was the people, who for years stood either silently or participated willingly in the mass genocide of everything the Nazi regime did not see fit to exist.

As I packed my bags, I decided it was time to face my demons and see for myself where everything started. Was I in for a surprise when I arrived in Berlin! The people were wonderful and welcoming, their food was great and so were their wines. But what amazed me the most was what they had made of their city.

I was brought into a complete state of relief. Whatever was left after the devastation had been kept as a constant reminder of what their ancestors did. Berlin pays homage to those who suffered under its country’s murderous reign. They do not choose to erase a part of their shameful past, a dishonorable piece of history that Ahmadinejad or filmmaker Oliver Stone intend to make look like a fantasy. Instead, it is displayed publicly for their youth to learn from the atrocities of the past.

Why can’t we do the same thing in this country? Why can’t we just say NO to the building of a mosque at the foot of Ground Zero? There should be a resounding and unanimous national NO.

Unlike the Crusades, the Inquisition, the slavery movement, or the Nazis, the 9/11 attacks targeted a country and not a specific ethnic group, religion, or gender. The violent strikes on 9/11 were indiscriminative. They were nothing more than hatred acts driven by extremists who quoted the Koran on their way to murdering thousands of defenseless people.

Must we be reminded of such ignorant evil every time we walk by Ground Zero – taunted by the erection of the proposed mosque? I am fully aware that a Muslim center has been working in that area for many years, but this is different. A sparkling new mosque in the heart of Manhattan, where the symbol of American life once stood, would be the emblem of a triumphant conqueror’s flag, marking his victory over our defeated territory.

The Muslim community SHOULD back down on this one and build their house of prayer elsewhere. The fact that a Jihad was declared against our country and that our blood was shed in the name of Allah, makes Ground Zero an instant sacred place; not a sacred spot for Muslims, but for our country to remember the day the ground shook under our feet and our safety was forever shattered.

We should never forget what happened on 9/11. Even if America is portrayed around the world as the country of opportunity, the country where everything is possible, the country of freedom and equality, everything has a limit. And I believe we hit that limit with this subject. It would be politically incorrect to let America as a nation have a mosque as the welcome committee to Ground Zero.

I do not blame the Muslim community for the actions of its extreme wing. However, I could never erase the images shown all across the networks: joyous Muslims around the world, burning our flag in their streets while chanting and dancing to the death of not only Americans, but a number of Muslim Americans as well.

What if the American Muslim community proposed to do what the Germans did in the heart of Berlin? I understand that Muslim spiritual leaders cannot control the actions of their terrorist sector, which grows out of hand on a daily basis, but I believe they should encourage their congregants into erecting a memorial around Ground Zero to honor the people who died at the hands of their own.

Many people who support the building of the mosque, two blocks down the deadly grounds of the Twin Towers, allege that the government is censoring their religious freedom.

That statement could not be more false. This country is open to all religions and leaves each one to their own. This is a civil matter that requires common sense and our government has nothing to do with the ultimate decision of a building.

Lastly, what does politics have to do with it? Apparently both leading parties, Democrats and Republicans, haven’t realized that this is not a partisan issue. Nevertheless, both parties continue to show complete disregard for the pain of America, and use it as a weapon to gain seats in the House and trash the other party.

Building a mosque at the foot of Ground Zero would be no different than the insensitive building of a McDonald’s in the heart of Hiroshima. It is an American symbol which serves as a devastatingly constant reminder of the nuclear bomb that indiscriminately mass murdered their innocent people.

Ground Zero should stand for what America represents: a meltingpot of races, religions, languages, traditions, and ideologies. That’s what America was and still is being built on. If anything will be constructed around Ground Zero, something, which should have already been done in these past nine years, it should be a reminder of what our country stands for.

Our country is not the face of one religion, but that of an international community.

    entiendo que debe haber intereses , politicos y personales, para que un gobierbo decida hacer de cuenta que no pasa nada, que la libertad se confinda con libertinaje, con abuso , es una verguenza al dolor de cientos de personas y al repudio del mundo, espero que alguna vez, prive la rzon y no la ignorancia, no todo en la vida se mide con la misma vara, pero es impotante no perder el rumbo de la moralidad.

      TRANSLATION

      I understand that there might be personal and political interests for a government to make to believe that nothing is happening. Freedom is being confused with false freedom affecting the pain of hundreds of people across the globe. I hope that one day knowledge will govern over ignorance. We can’t measure everything in life with the same stick, but it is important not to lose track of morality.

  2. BrownEyedGirl says:

    I say YES to the mosque. I am all for building it and letting them see what it feels like when it implodes like the twin towers.

  3. DeathToTerrorism says:

    You might appreciate this. I got it from another blog and thought it was very apropriate with all those that sympathize with Islam.

    KEEP THE FACTS ROLLING: Right From The Qur’an:

    “Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Qur’an 2:191
    “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Qur’an 9:123
    “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Qur’an 9:5
    “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Qur’an 3:85
    “The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.” Qur’an 9:30
    “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Qur’an 5:33
    “The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.” Qur’an 9:28
    “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Qur’an 22:19
    “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.” Qur’an 47:4

    CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
    This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish
    And send it on to everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are
    So quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be
    A good American?
    This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.
    The following is his reply:
    Theologically – no. . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon
    God of Arabia .
    Religiously – no.. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah
    Except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
    Scripturally – no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of
    Islam and the Quran.
    Geographically – no . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he
    Turns in
    prayer five times a day.
    Socially – no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make
    Friends with Christians or Jews .
    Politically – no.. . . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual
    Leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America ,
    The great Satan.
    Domestically – no. .. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and
    Beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
    Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the American
    Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the
    Bible to be corrupt.
    Philosophically – no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does
    Not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot
    Co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or
    autocratic.
    Spiritually – no.. . . Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’
    The Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to
    As Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99
    Excellent names.
    Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Perhaps we should be
    Very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. – – – They obviously
    Cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish
    it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand
    This, the better it will be for our country and our future.
    The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. ….
    Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within.

  4. rocky says:

    how can a muslim president say no to the mosque at ground zero. let’s see nobama riggle out of this one, he is caught between a rock and hard place with his muslim beliefs and his political position.

    • Sheila says:

      You are an ignorant redneck and maybe you should practice being a little more undercover about it so your ignorance doesn’t show so much.

      Learn how to read for yourself, and spell, instead of listening to and blindly following right-wing fanatic nuts like Palin,Beck and Limbaugh.

  5. Dallas says:

    hey this is America and we have freedom of religion, or did you forget that. i don’t understand what all the fuss is about. the proposed building is first and foremost a MUSLIM COMMUNITY CENTER, NOT A MOSQUE and it is to be built TWO BLOCKS from ground zero. on 9-11 we weren’t attacked by islam we were attacked by extremists. get a grip. this article is pure hysteria and irresponsible.

  6. Tony says:

    I think it’s about time for a game of Cowboys & Muslims. John Wayne here I come.

  7. Dawn says:

    I saw people JUMPING from the burning buildings on 9/11/01. I will NEVER forget that. I can’t begin to imagine the terror and hopelessness they felt as they fell to their deaths. There was a couple holding hands as they jumped. I always wondered who they were, did they have children, siblings, parents?

    • jen says:

      We should never forget. We should never forget what the extreamists did to us. But to blame a whole religion for the acts of terrorists would be like blaming all Christians because Missionaries stole indiginous children away from their parents and gave them to Christain families to be treated as they pleased (Native American, Native Austrailian and recently children from Haiti). Should we blame all Christians because a Christain blew up the Oklahoma Fed building? Jesus did not preach hate!!! Don’t tarnish His memorey with hate.

  8. Danny says:

    Arizona and other racist states are so busy looking to capture the poor little Mexican, they are putting all of us in danger when they give the blond blue eyed terrorist a free pass into this country because he is not “brown”. Racism will be our downfall. Terrorists are using our racist attitudes to defeat us because we are not looking for a certain type of immigrant.

  9. Jimmy says:

    Just what Israel wanted, America is fighting their war! If we weren’t so closely tied to Israel, 911 would NEVER have happened.

    • SANDRA G. says:

      Jimmy:
      It’s the Western world Muslim extremists hate. Is our culture, our music, our clothes, our women and our lifestyle that they have declared a Jihad against. Leave Israel out of it

  10. A. Gardner says:

    I am very disappointed in pastor Terry Jones and I am very disappinted in the cowards that we have turned out to be in America today. DONT BURN THEIR holy book???? Are you f*&k!ng kidding me. I am sick and f*&k!ng tired of us cowering down and being afraid of those hooligans! The American government made the US troops burn the bible in Afghan, and what did we do? Nothing!!!! Not one f*&k!ng damn thing! Now they have the f*&k!ng balls to get upset when we threat to burn the Qur’an, Quoran, Koran or however the hell they want to call their sh*t manual for murder. Today is not the day to hear this bulls#*t from you morons.

  11. Enough says:

    Great article Sandra and I agree with you 1000000000000000000000000000000% BUT I would agree to allow them to build the mosque after the Arabs allow a church, a temple and a synagogue to be built in Mecca first. Who can argue with that? Sounds fair to me.

    • jen says:

      The world trade center was a place of business not a place of worship. Your comparison makes no sense. Maybe if a church was destroyed your reasoning would make sense.

  12. jen says:

    The building is not only a mosque. It is a multi-faith community center. MULTI FAITH. It is being built by muslims to bring people together, to pray together. Do you condem a whole religion for the acts of one sect, one group? If so then condem christians as well. Timothy Mcvey the man who bombed the Oklahoma building was a christain. That was the biggest terrorist attack in the US until 9/11. Closed minded haters are ruining this country. Freedom of religion is freedom for any and all religions. Christians blow up clinics and kill doctors. Where is your outrage? How can you be Christain when you are so full of hate? Jesus would be saddened by the hate spewed by christians. Hmmm sounds like you are casting stones at everyone not just the guilty. Maybe you should worry about your redemption and not the “guilt” of others. Hate only breeds hate. I personally know many muslims who came together in support of the US and condemmed the terrorists. I know muslims who hate what extreamists are doing to their religion. Do you hate them? Would you refuse them a house of worship? You say this is a civil matter. I agree. According to the constitution of the US they have the civil right to build there. Do you want to start taking away peoples rights based on their faith? like the Nazi’s did the Jews? You are right our country is not the face of one religion. The community center is multifaith. You say ground zero is a sacred place for our country just not for the muslim citizens of our country. BIGOT! You sound like someone who only wants constitutional protections for their own kind. Wow, you sound like a Christian extreamest. The US does not want your hate and fear. You sound no better than the Taliban.

    • Zynkyks says:

      Jen, it’s people like you who have their noses up their a$$es who can’t “smell” the danger or the warning signs when it is staring them in the face.

      Pay attention – Mosque or as you so naively want to call it “Multifaith Center” = terrorism recruitment center, period.

      • jen says:

        Bigot. zealot.

        • Zynkyks says:

          JEN, POINT BLANK, ARE YOU A MUSLIM? IS THIS WHY YOU ARE SO FIRED UP? YOU MAKE NO SENSE & WHILE WE’RE AT IT, YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SPELL – THE PLURAL OF NAZI IS NAZIS NOT NAZI’S – NO APOSTROPHE, MORON. ALSO THIS IS HOW EXTREMIST IS SPELLED NO “E” BEFORE THE “S.” NOW BE A GOOD GIRL AND COMMIT IT TO MEMORY FOR YOUR NEXT COMMENT.

          • jen says:

            Actually I am an Atheist. I do not believe in any god. Religion to me is a source of brainwashing and control. Anyone can justify any act with their religion. I was trying to play devil’s advocate and get a point across. We the people means all the people, take away one groups rights and which group is next? I am reading comments from American’s that sound just as hateful as the extreamist muslims. People are making comments advocating destruction of the community center. Some people may not like the location of the building but it has every right under the constitution to be there.

          • Zynkyks says:

            Thank you for responding to my post and explaining your position in such a manner. I apologize for describing your typos as bad spelling. You are obviously smart and I appreciate your passion for equal rights, although I do disagree in this instance with regard to the mosque.

    • SANDRA G. says:

      Dear Jen;
      Thanks so much for your spirited and very heated comments. However, I gather that your anger has blocked your ability to comprehend while reading. At no point in this article the Muslim religion is being judged. When you calm down go back to it and you’ll read that I only emphasize on the extremist wing.
      One more thing: Why do you assume am a Chistian? I wouldn’t overuse the term bigot, it could get back right at you.

  13. Rational Elements says:

    This isn’t about religion it is about blatant disrespect. I am tired of us placating these terrorists because we don’t want them to attack us. Grrrrrr this makes me so mad! Let those towelheads put their mosque some other place as in the place where the sun don’t shine. Do you think we could go to their country and demand where we put our churches, synagogues and temples?

  14. euphoria221 says:

    Let us be clear in this discussion, there are radical muslims and regular rational everyday muslims. The latter did not cause 9/11.

  15. TOLERANCE 2010 says:

  17. laura says:

    It’s not about attacking an athnic group, religion or gender but about attacking and fighting a whole culture, the occidental one.
    Like the poisonous animals and insects, the muslims are paralysing their victims before they exterminate them. It’s time to wake up America! (and Europe too…)

  18. circus act says:

    Thats really cool man, I agree, thanks for sharing.

  21. Searscardo says:

    it is hard for me to think that refraining from burning the Koran is going to help protect our troops. so we say to these morons “see, terrorists we are not burning your Koran so maybe you won’t terrorize and kill us anymore”? not a chance, they are laughing at us and jumping in the streets shouting with pride death to America. they don’t care. if they cannot convert us they really believe they have to kill us. these are sick people that want there cake and eat it too. but i say we fight fire with fire. starting with the mosque. absolutely not.

  22. rabbit ears says:

    lets not forget 9-11 happened under bush, 9-11 happened when republicans controlled the country. lets not forget when we vote in november.

  23. Whar13 says:

    we got to be the most stupidest people on the face of the planet or we need to have our head examine. how many times obama have to say he is a christian and not muslim? right wing red neck keep talking about that. and so what if he is (which he ain’t). muslims are not devils, there are good muslims and bad muslims like in every reliegion. leave obama alone with the muslim attacks please.

  24. Vanhandel says:

    Yesterday I picked up a boy and his father in my cab. The father was taking the son to get a tattoo for his 18th birthday. My religion forbids us to have tatooes. Should I have left them at the curb and not have them in my cab? My reasoning is that we are all different but we are more the same than we are different. It is only up to G-d to judge.

  25. neonsign says:

    We have spent most of our commemoration of 9/11 talking about muslims and the mosque and very little time has been spent on remembering and grieving for the 3000 people that lost their lives. We should be ashamed as a nation because it is a disservice to the grieving families and loved ones.

  26. nimo says:

    I’m thrilled that other people are taking gumption and contributing towards this topical post. That is what I like about America, every one has his opinion and is not afraid to share it. This is good.

  27. Justin says:

    That’s exactly how I feel. I’m all for supporting religious freedom but not at the expense of American compassion. There is no dignity in allowing the mosque within blocks from Ground Zero. There should be no buildings within at least a 50 mile radius. We like to show that we are “free” but as you said, there is a limit to that freedom when it compromises OUR very freedom and life as we know it. Kudos to you for this article. I like the way you ladies tell it like it is. Don’t back down to the morons attacking you. You have a lot of support.

    • Sheila says:

      Justin,
      Do you live in New York? Have you ever seen the area surrounding Ground Zero?
      You do know that it’s located in the heart of the Financial District.
      You do know that there are replacement buildings being built as we type here.
      I think there is a lot of confusion. Ground Zero is not a park. It is blocks of city land in the busiest part of Manhattan.

      • Justin says:

        I don’t live in New York and I don’t have the exact layout of the land, in fact i meant a 5 mile radius not 50, but I stick to what I said. Wherever this mosque is being built, even if it is just TWO blocks away, it is too close for comfort. I’ve read some of your comments and I just don’t understand where your allegiance lies. You sound more pro terrorist than American. And where is your compassion for those that lost families, friends and loved ones on 9-11? I am all for embracing tolerance and understanding that not all muslims are terrorists, but you just seem to be too much on the enemy’s side for my taste.

      • Sheila says:

        Justin,

        I am not pro terroist. I am anti ignorance, racism and discrimination. My comments here are directed at people who are spouting blatantly incorrect information and rhetoric that is designed to inflame hatred.

        Your comment about not having the exact layout of the land just emphazises what I’m saying. All kinds of people are weighing in on this topic who have no clue what the real situation is.

        You said two blocks is too close for comfort. What exactly does that mean ? Whose comfort? So should the Mcdonald’s,Burger King, Centuty 21 and all the other businesses be moved away for comfort.

        Since you are all for embracing tolerance why don’t you show some in thinking about this issue. What does a building make of bricks and mortar have to do with compassion? My idea of compassion is showing emotional support, being willing to listen and try to help with grief and loss and helping survivors live with the memories of that day.

        And yes, Justin I am an American. In fact my ancestors were the orgiinal Americans and we’ve been fighting European terrorism for 500 years.

  28. Single Mom says:

    I agree wholehartedly with your post. Thanks for being bold to say what many people are thinking a lot!

  29. ünal şahin says:

    please let us rise above hatred and let everyone worship in peace. the multicultural center will benefit all and will enable a variety of discussions on tolerance that will make us a better people as a whole. one more thing the center is not at ground zero it is two blocks away so may i respectfully say your information is a misrepresentation of the facts. thank you for posting my comment.

    A little camel lover like Bin Laden slay the sleeping giant America the great and brought us to our knees one sad Fall day almost 10 years ago. As long as we continue to allow him to spread his cancer of hate among us he is winning and defeating us again and again on our very soil. This is what is happening. We lose over and over again every time we bicker and fight and distrust each other especially about the mosque. Freedom of religion. Let them have their mosque. Surely we will know if they use it for terrorist activities and then all bets are off.

  34. I Love NY says:

    I’m with you Sandra. They drew a line in the sand when they attacked us on 9-11. NO tolerance. NO mosque.

  35. Mark Gold says:

    All those rednecks protesting about the Moslem Center in New York City are idiots. It’s not being built at Ground Zero. It is being constructed in Manhattan, but not at the exact site. Are they supposed to stay out of New York City entirely? It’s stupid.

  36. ed hardy says:

    YOu cannot reason with those radicals. I say fight fire with fire b/c that’s all they understand. Our pacifist attitude makes them laugh at us and spit on our country and on the graves of all those that died at their hands on 9-11.

  37. kmackenzie says:

    It absolutely agree

  38. Sheila says:

    Sandra,

    I take issue with your “foot of Ground Zero” phrase. later in the post you corrected yourself to state it’s two blocks away. I live in New York City. Do you? Hmmmm…..thought not. I lost people I knew on 9/11. That said the buiilding where the Islamic center will be built is not at Ground Zero.
    Give me a break with the sacred… you mention a McDonalds at Hirsohima. There _is_ a Burger King and a McDonalds closer to Ground Zero than the proposed Islamic center. So much for sacred. So that leaves the religion, racism, bigotry issue. That’s what’s behind this and people can make all the comparisons to Hirsoshima, Auschwitz, etc, that they like it doesn’t cover up that fact.
    It wwould be “politically incorrect” to build the Islamic center. Since when is political correctness a valid way to decide something. Politicl correctness is an artificial creation that has nothing to do with what is morally. ethically or spiritually right.
    Whether there is an Islamic center built in a former Burlington’s retail store or not has absolutely nothing to do with forgetting what happened on 9/11/01. Anyone who lived through it _can_ never forget it. The memories will not go away.

    • Sandra G. says:

      Dear Sheila;
      Thanks for your comments and contribution to our blog. I’m glad you’ve found a place where you can vent, be heard, and tell everybody off :)
      But I’m not sure I get your point about being a New Yorker. How does that make your opinion valid and the rest of the opinions not? 9/11 impacted the world, not just New York!

      • Sheila says:

        Sandra,
        Yes 9/11 impacted the world but the Islamic center is being built here in New York not the rest of the world. Your comments and my response re McDonalds are a small example of how people from outside New York are misinformed about this issue and not looking at things clearly.

        Someone else made a comment that nothing should be built in a 50 mile radius. Based on that, the whole island of Manhattan
        would be empty. Give me a break here.

        People not from New York say their response is the “sacred site” thing. But if you live and work here and walk by the construction site that is Ground Zero every day then you have a better idea of how that argument doesn’t resonate.My opnion is not more valid just more informed.

        An Islamic Center or not wiil not affect the people killed at the WTC, including my friend Stephanie Irby. They are beyond all this and their memory does not depend on whether there’s another building in downtown Manhattan.

    • Sunnyside says:

      Sheila, why argue with morons who refuse to research the facts. As a New York and fair American you are trying to enlighten, but idiots never want to learn. I’m with you and I’m sorry about the loss of your friend Stephanie Irby.

  39. Socco says:

    All the pacifists here amuse me. I wonder if they had lost family or friends at the towers if they would still be spewing their garbage of tolerance. So we should let ourselves be held captive because we don’t want to upset them fearing they will attack! Well, that’s not a good solution. I would like some of these people to tell us what the solution is. They sound anti American to me. Also, what would they say if the mosque is built and it is revealed that it is a center to recruit terrorists to commit murderous acts on this soil? What would they say then? Well, I for one don’t want to wait to find out. The only solution is to JUST SAY NO TO THE MOSQUE.

  40. Grim says:

    There are obviously terrorist sympathizers commenting here in disguise and cowards that they are they don’t have the ball$ to come out and just say so.

  41. aa461 says:

    Absolutely with you I agree. I support you.

  42. Chris says:

    We have to be careful that we don’t become a nation of cynics and hateful people. My muslim friends are some of the sweetest people I have met. It saddens me that they are discriminated against because of the image being put out there about all muslims. Did any of you say to retaliate against white people when Timothy McVey killed so many people in Oklahoma? or to black people when the DC sniper killed so many innocent ones? I can go on and on. I support our many freedoms in America so I support the multicultural center that is being proposed as a center for understanding and healing. You are wrong on this one.

  43. Chandra says:

    Every religion on this planet is about love except Islam. Islam is about hatred and everything negative. If they cannot convert us to their poisoned philosophy, then they feel they only alternative is to kill us. This is not rationale thinking no matter how many of them are nice on the outside. Their religion is about being superior and to do away with the inferior ones that dont believe in their crap. I don’t believe any of them should be here to enjoy the freedoms that they obviously cannot enjoy in their country. We don’t need another mosque or what ever they want to call it.

    • Sandra G. says:

      All religions lead to the same point which is God. It can be named in many different ways, but it is still God. Saying that Islam is about hatred will be wrong.
      Unfortunately, there are extremists in every religion that love to twist and turn their sacred books in order to achieve what they want: “POWER.”

    How many muslim Americans will stand up for America against islam if it came to that? I hope we never have to find out. This is a simple question we all have to ask ourselves deep in our hearts as Americans, then we can truly say we have nothing to fear or the enemy is in our midst.

  48. DeathToTerrorism says:

    Here is another interesting article I got from an email that I would also like to share. Check out the other one I got from another blog and posted here a few days ago.

    This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes,
    is a well-known leader in prison ministry.
    The man who walks with God always gets
    to his destination. If you have a pulse you have
    a purpose.
    The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion
    per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races!!

    Last month I attended my annual training session
    that’s required for maintaining my state prison
    security clearance. During the training session
    there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant
    and
    Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.
    I was particularly interested in what the Islamic
    had to say. The Muslim gave a great representation
    of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.
    After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
    When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: ‘Please,
    correct me if I’m
    wrong, but I understand that most Imams and
    clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy
    war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they
    are assured of a place in heaven.
    If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
    There was no disagreement with my statements
    and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’
    I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this
    straight. All followers of Allah have been
    commanded to kill everyone who is not of your
    faith so they can have a place in heaven.
    Is that correct?’
    The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that
    of a little boy who
    had just been caught with his hand in the cookie
    jar.’
    He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’ I then stated,
    ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine
    Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill
    those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in
    order to guarantee
    them a place in heaven!’
    The Muslim was speechless! I continued, ‘I also
    have a problem with being your friend when you
    and your brother clerics are telling your followers
    to kill me!
    Let me ask you a question: Would you
    rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in
    order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who
    tells me to love you because I am going to heaven
    and He wants you to be there with me?’
    You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam
    hung his head in shame.
    Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training
    seminar were not happy with my way of
    dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the
    truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.
    In twenty years there will be enough Muslim
    voters in the U.S. to elect the President!
    I think everyone in the U.S. should be required
    to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way
    this will be widely publicized, unless each of us
    send it on! This is your chance to make a difference…

    HI Sandra
    I enjoyed reading your blog. I am surprised that an intelligent woman such as yourself would have a fear of going to Berlin because of what you feel about the prosecution of the Jewish people by the Nazis. It is very well known that the Germans today find that part of their past a black stain on their history. They have a shameful past and I am sure people such as yourself are going to reminding them for many many years to come. Believe me I have witnessed it. My sister’s boyfriend is German and funny enough the racism is always from Jewish people towards him. I am happy that you did a trip there to be reassured. Germans are not out there to get you.
    I have to tell you this story about flying oversees with an Israeli airline. They searched me and my ex-fiancé, an American, for about an hour and half at the check point. They escorted us to the plane from there and told us that if we wanted to fly with their airline, we couldn’t leave the plane till it was the take off time, about 2 hours later. Why all this? Because I was a Muslim who was traveling amongst the Jewish and I was not to be trusted.
    As far as your article regarding building a mosque, I respect your opinion; however, I don’t understand some of your points. Have you last walked on the Ground Zero? Have you lived through a war? Besides reading about the war in different parts of the world, have you been in a situation where you saw your neighbor’s house get bombed? Have you lost a person in 9/11? I think you have been too harsh towards Muslims who want to represent this religion as a peaceful one. It is true that the attack was done by fanatics and that is the key point. Fanatics have nothing to do with other Muslims May be they are trying to educate people that Muslims are not all like Ahmadinejad or the fanatics. Have you thought of that option?
    I do understand that people would oppose to building the mosque and I do agree that a memorial center would be a best option to solve the problem.

    • Sandra G. says:

      Hey Jasmine!
      Long time no see!
      Thanks for your comment.
      Let me make a few things clear for you and while at it a lot of other bloggers.
      I didn’t feel fear about going to Berlin, but apprehension.
      The issue about the Israeli airline happens to all of us. Flight times change. We are all subject to searches and questioning. I’ve been to Israel many times and every time they held my father, a Jew, for a couple of hours before entering Israel. I’ve lost people I know in terrorists’ attacks. I lived through the dirty war in Argentina and had family members persecuted and exiled because of their political and social views. I don’t have any issues with the Muslim religion or any religion at all. My opinion about the Mosque close to ground zero does not call for the attack of Muslims or to deny any religion freedom. It is not what I said, so please, let’s not assume what is not written.
      Having said all of that, it is clear we both agree on the same points which are stated at the end of your comment.

      We both agree that the attacks were done by fanatics, and I make very clear that we can’t blame a whole religion for the acts of their extremist wing!!

      Then you said:

      “I do understand that people would oppose to building the mosque and I do agree that a memorial center would be a best option to solve the problem.”

      We agree on that one too.

    • Sandra G. says:

      It’s me again;
      I’m so glad you raised so many questions, because it gives me the chance to clarify a few points that are being taken completely out of context.
      You ask me if I lost somebody in 9/11. This is not about me. Did we really have to lose somebody in 9/11 to feel deeply wounded by the horrifying events of that day? Do we have to walk past Ground Zero to have an opinion about what should be erected around that area?

      You ask me if I personally experienced anything related to terrorism or if I just read it on newspapers.

      Were you ever dragged out of a bench by the beach because an explosive package was silently hidden below you? Well… I was while living in Israel. Or how about seeing the market that you purchased your groceries at, and spent fun times with friend being blown up into millions of tiny pieces? Well… I have.
      Did any of your family friends were ever involved in the biggest terrorist attack that rocked the Jewish Community in Argentina in 1994? Well… in my case they were. Friends who we spent summer vacations with, who came to my house, who danced at my weeding were directly involved in the bombing of the AMIA. Did I blame the whole Muslim Community for their acts? NO!

      No, I’m not talking out of my backside and I’m not condemning a whole religion for the acts of terrorists.
      Please, be clear about it.

      Since you raised the issue about Israel, I’d like to share some facts that can be found in any encyclopedia or website.
      The latest stats (2010) of the population in Israel: The country’s population stands at 7,587,000 made of 75% Israeli Jews, 20.4% Israeli Arabs, and a little over 4% who are not particularly identified.
      Israeli Arabs are an active part of the country, they work, study,(At the University of Haifa, for example, 20 percent of undergraduates are Arab Israelis),live, and travel abroad just like any other citizen.
      Muslim Israelis have been a part of the Knesset (Israeli parliament), since the first Knesset elections in 1949. Currently there are 14 Muslim cabinet members serving in the Israeli Parlaiment.
      Do you believe that every time a Muslim boards a plane headed to Israel is held captive or else?

      • Petra says:

        To Jasmine, why are you so angry and defensive. We Americans have a RIGHT to be angry at muslims. After all, it was muslim terrorists that attacked us on 9/11. You get upset that you and your family are pulled over at airports, but can’t you see why you would be targeted more than any other type? You fit the profile. Black and hispanic men have fit the criminal profile for years and are still being pulled over everywhere, although not all black or all hispanic men commit crimes and these two races are not the only ones commiting crimes. It’s par for the course baby, live with it. Sorry.

      • Jasmine says:

        Hi Sandra

        Thanks for your responses. I really don’t care for the statistics you have given me. Israelis are very fast in pointing fingers at others and don’t accept any responsibility when they do something wrong. Are Israelis still apologizing for bombing two UN schools in Gaza and killing young children? They condemn Islamic countries of building nuclear bombs while they have theirs already. How are they justifying having nuclear bombs?
        As far as experiencing war and bombing, I lived in Iran during the war between Iran and Iraq. And believe me a war like that changes you for life. We lost so many young people, friends, and families in the war. I however am not so fast in judging Iraqi people. The war was the product of two crazy governments and the fanatics on both parts. Both countries lost their loved ones and went through a horrible ordeal.
        You sat on one bomb in the bus in a country that is known for its turbulent history and allow yourself to judge, discriminate, and decide for all the Muslims.
        As far as the example of the airport, I travel a lot and to many countries. I know how the airlines securities work. What they did to us in that Israeli airline was shameful, rude, and offensive. I have no problem with the other airlines since they don’t discriminate against me. This airline walked us to the plane after the search 2 hours prior to the flight. THEY ASKED US TO SIT THERE UNTILL THE TAKE OFF TIME. We couldn’t go and eat. THIS WAS AFTER THE SECURITY CHECK.
        AND YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS WITH THE ISRAELI AIRLINE THAT I TRAVELD I WAS HELD (captive as you like to call it) IN THE FLIGHT BECAUSE I WAS MUSLIM. IT WAS NOT A REGULAR CHECK. MY EX FIANCE, A CATHOLIC, WAS ABSOLUTLY APPALLED AND SHOCKED BY THE WHOLE THING. So it wasn’t an overreaction.

      • John says:

        It’s that self righteousness and arrogance of Jews that makes people not too sympathetic.

      • Sandra G. says:

        Dear Jasmine;
        First of all I’m not discriminating against Muslims. I stated over and over again in my article as well as in my comments, that the Muslim community is not to blame for the acts of their extreme wing. I know that in the heat of the moment is easy to bypass essential points, but on a personal level, I do not wish for my words to be taken out of context misguiding others.

        As for the word “captive”, I did not use it as mockery, I truly believe, you were held captive, because you were deprived of your freedom. I hope you’ve taken the proper measures with the airline to vindicate you and your friend. What happened to you was plain wrong!
        As for the rest… we are all entitled to our opinion.

    • Anna says:

      @Jasmine;
      Shame on you Jasmine! I’m not Jewish or Muslim, but I’ve been following this discussion and I say you are wrong! You pick and choose the words from the article and you make it seem like the writer is against Muslims. How convenient for you and all the other Muslims that want to blame the Jews for the acts of Muslim terrorists.
      If you would invest the energy you put into hating Israel and its people, and you would call your brothers and sisters in your fate to stand up against the terrorist comitting cold blooded murder all over the world, maybe people would look at Muslims and the mosque from a different view!

      • Jasmine says:

        Dear Anna,
        You should read everything one more time. I do respond to an article as I understand it and as I please. That is why blogs are written. The writer who is a very lovely person and I have met her in several occasions responds according to her beliefs as well.
        To my opinion, you are in the wrong here. I never tried to blame anyone for the act of terrorism. I merely pointed out that there are Muslims out there that get judged by the Jewish people just because there are Muslims. I am not a terrorist. I am not a fanatic. I don’t believe in bombing other countries and killing innocent people. However, I have been judged assuming all the above is the truth about me.
        In Iran, I lived a street whit a big Jewish family. I went to their homes, they came to ours. I never felt that there was a difference between us because of our different fates. I moved to Los Angeles, I was aware of it in no time. What does that say about our community? About the people? We create this distance and animosity. I don’t hate Israel and I am hoping to visit the county one day.
        I love being a Muslim and I love my religion. I love the sound of the invitation to prayer and I love what it represents. So I don’t care for the opinion of an ignorant person who is still having a hard time separating the fanatics from the real Muslims.
        Shame on you dear reader. Go get some education before you voice your opinion.

  50. Joyful777 says:

    Religion has caused more wars than anything else in history. John Lennon said “Imagine no relgion… I wonder if you can… nothing to kill or die for… a brotherhood of man.” John was definitely on to something but unfortunately he died and he just didn’t know Jesus Christ who would have shown him the way and the truth. Christianity is not a religion, so please don’t lump it in with the crazies out there like Islam, Budhism, and others. REad the Bible and have an experience like you’ve never had in your life before. Get to know Jesus and you will have compassion for the muslims even if you do not agree with their religion. You will see that there is good and bad in everyone and only by the grace of God we do not do certain heinous things ourselves, because we are human and function on human emotion. But God is good and he forgives. The Christian God is a loving forgiving God and he loves the muslims just as he asks us to love them and not judge them lest we be judged ourselves. The America that we know was founded on the belief in the God of Abraham and he served our country well making it the most powerful in the world. Now these days we disown him and seek other gods but only to our detriment – look around and see the result. Wake up America.

    • Jo says:

      Thank you Joyful777 for having the courage to talk about God and Jesus in a time when it is not kosher to do so and for sharing the true meaning of Christianity. God bless you.

  51. JSR says:

    I don’t have a problem with the mosque. My problem is with the tolerance we as so called proud Americans have for burning the American Flag but the fear and anger we feel about burning the Koran. Tsk tsk. Unbelievable!

  52. Matthew says:

    Lots of people need educating here. Hate founded on ignorance is tragic. Discrimination of any kind is wrong. This is not the America we know and support. If you start shutting down freedom of religion we are in big trouble. Besides, the building is not on Ground Zero but at least two blocks away. This is unnecessary hysteria by the media and others that have an agenda to perpetuate division and hatred. I suggest many of you take up the Koran and read it before you make any more posts based on emotion and not fact.

  53. Brianna says:

    Sheila, I agree with EVERYthing you say. You are one of the few people here that seem to have any brain. You make sense and it does not mean that if you support the freedom of religion you support Islam. That is sooooo sooooo stupid. Some of the commenters don’t seem to have any real knowledge of the issue. This is a nice blog but you find morons every where I guess.

  54. Halbrook6 says:

    your post is perfect to show of just how much jews and muslims see things from a fundamentally different perspective. hence the eternal conflict.

  55. superior gringo says:

    Building the mosque is provocative, insensitive and just plain old dangerous move.

  56. BradleyD says:

    There are radical crazy Muslims and nice law abiding, regular Joe Blow Muslims. I wonder why the regular Joe’s don’t come out more often against the radicals. Oh, I remember. They want to stay alive. So, this is just to say that no one can reason with those extremists, not even their own,so why do we think WE can. NO MOSQUE PERIOD!!!

  57. ali baba says:

    some muslims present islam as a religion of peace but at its core it really isn’t. christians get mad when you don’t convert and the jews dont’ want just anyone to convert but neither one of these religions threaten to kill you if you don’t. islam does.

  58. golffanatic says:

    Nice to be visiting your blog again, it has been months for me but I see you gals have been developing quite nicely. Congratulations. Well this article has certainly got everyone fired up but that’s what America is all about – freedom to express oneself. For my penny’s worth, even if the location is two blocks away, I don’t believe the mosque should be built. It can only lead to ill feelings and more violent offensive and defensive acts, depending on the vantage point you see it from. Until next time…keep the passion, that’s what makes life fun.

  59. Thomas says:

    Actually, the idea of a multicultural center for understanding is not a bad idea once you get to know more about it. Maybe that’s what we need.

  61. british gymnastics says:

    Passionate and awesome article. This is my favourite of all your posts. We contend with this problem here as well in England and Europe, but I believe we have more “teeth,” so to speak, than Americans in dealing with the muslim take-over in the world. France has also stepped up to the plate to curtail the Islamization of Paris by getting rid of the burqas with the face veils in an effort to prohibit people from concealing their faces in public. Way to go France! Next we are going to have to deal with the obstruction in the various public streets where muslims pray to “Allah” and add to pedestrian and traffic congestion. Stick to your guns and don’t let those fanatic sympathisers get your goat.

True what happened to us on September 11, 2001 wasn’t right, but it’s never right no matter where it happens. That’s why we have to have compassion and empathy.

  65. Tamara says:

    What is all the fuss about? This is NOT on Ground Zero. This is a building that used to be a Burlington Coat Factory that has been sitting for sale for a long time and it’s over TWO blocks away from Ground Zero. If you are going to have an opinion, then get the facts and get your story straight.

    It’s funny how people with opposing views argue with each other as often as they do. So often (at least here on this blog) do I see someone to say your wrong about this this and that, then I hear someone say, great post I totally agree with you. But here specifically in the section on the mosque this is so much more evidant. It’s like we’re attracted to what sets us off. Or attracted to what we must correct (regardless if intentions are positive or negitive).

    Bill O’Reilly shoulda walked off the View last week. These cackling women drive me nuts.

    hi, excellent web blog post, and brave to stand up to muslim. no mosque.

  120. Daughtry says:

    The majority of New Yorker DO NOT WANT THIS MOSQUE built here. Enough with the left wingers and their equal rights bullsh@t.

  121. Dolly says:

    I agree with most of the people here. The mosque should NOT be built.

  122. Cornick4 says:

    Just wanna commentabout this article, after reading the whole thing it make me have a new vision about the mosque. It should not be built there. I like your website.

  123. Zynkyks says:

    Super comedian GEORGE WALLACE sums the controversy surrounding the Mosque being built near ground zero best:

    If they build it, I say across the street should be a topless bar called ” You Mecca Me Hot” & next to that a gay bar called “The Turban Cowboy” & next to that a Pork Rib restaurant called “Iraq-O-Ribs” & next to that a check cashing place called “Iran Out of Money” THEN we’ll see who’s tolerant!

    Did you laugh? I SURE did. I’m STILL laughing… :-) :-) :-) :-)
