Muslim summit planned over NYC Islamic center

As reported here, [a] proposed Islamic center near ground zero is slowly being embraced by some Muslims who initially were indifferent about the plan, partly in response to a sense that their faith is under attack.

Your "faith" is not "under attack". What is "under attack" is the fact that you people want to build a monument to your "victory" on part of Ground Zero, which is a slap to the face of ALL Americans, not just New Yorkers. You want to build this monument just as you built the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Just as you built a mosque on the site of the cathedral in Cordoba, Spain. Just as you converted another cathedral in Sofia into a mosque. That's what you people do, when you conquer someone. I've got news for you - you haven't conquered us, so we don't want you to build a "victory mosque" on the site of what to us was an attack worse than the attack on Pearl Harbor.

A summit of U.S. Muslim organizations is planned for Saturday and Sunday in New York City to address both the project and a rise in anti-Muslim sentiments and rhetoric that has accompanied the nationwide debate over the project.

We're not so much "anti-Muslim", as we are anti-asstwits, which is what you people are by insisting that this "victory mosque" be built.

It has yet to be seen whether the groups will emerge with a firm stand on the proposed community center, dubbed Park51. The primary purpose of the meeting is to talk about ways to combat religious bigotry.

When you do discuss "combating religious bigotry", make sure you look at yourselves first. You people have a philosophy that is anti-every other religion in the world. You might want to start there first.

But Shaik Ubaid of the Islamic Leadership Council of Metropolitan New York, one of the groups organizing the gathering, said he has a growing sense that some American Muslims who initially had trepidation are now throwing their support behind the plan.

"Once it became a rallying cry for extremists, we had no choice but to stand with Feisal (Abdul) Rauf," he said, referring to the New York City imam who has been leading the drive for the center.

Two things. One, how is it extreme when we object to being slapped in the face, by having a constant reminder of what you people did to us on September 11th, 2001, built on the very ground of that atrocity? What is "extreme" is the fact that you are ignoring our sensitivities in this matter, and are only looking at proclaiming yourselves as the victims here. That's extreme, claiming that you are the victims.

The other thing is, Rauf is no imam. To be an imam, you have to go through rigorous vetting by Muslim clerics who decide who is an imam. Rauf has not gone through that rigorous vetting. What he is, is a charlatan, and
a slumlord.

Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs has much more on this, including the fact that this planned "summit" just happens to fall on Yom Kippur, giving our Jewish friends a hard slap in the face, which you can read
here. So much for us Christians and Jews being the bigots, eh?
