In a stunning insult to the families of the 9/11 victims, Islamist scum are planning the construction of the Cordoba House, a mosque and cultural center. It will be built just steps from the 9/11 site where 3000 people lost their lives when jihadists flew planes into the Twin Towers.
Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims. We at Neville feel safer already
For those not in the know, Cordoba was the capital of the Islamic Emirate of Al-Andalus (Andalusia) in Spain, seized by Muslim invaders from Africa in 711 and recaptured by Spanish Christians under Ferdinand III of Castille in 1236. What better indication could there be of the Islamic intent to make America a Moslem Al-Andalus Emirate?
And in an amazing display of "dhimmitude" the 12 enablers (not one of them a Muslim) at the New York City Municipal Authority voted unanimously to approve the Cordoba mosque.
"I think it will be a wonderful asset to the community," said committee Chairman and chief idiot Ro Sheffe. No doubt that the mosque will be used to stockpile weapons.
Again for those not in the know, religious and cultural imperialism is what Muslims do, who believe they are under the command of Allah to conduct jihad upon infidels. The cowards among the infidels who submit to Muslims are called dhimmis, roughly translated from the Arabic as "useful idiots."
For centuries, in lands conquered by Muslims have, turned churches into mosques, destroyed cultural and religious icons (the Taliban blew up two historic Bhuddas in Afghnanistan) and imposed taxes (extortion) on dhimmis who live amongst them. Building a mosque at the 9/11 site is the equivalent of building the Al-aqsa mosque on the site of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. Islam is a cancer that systematically infects the body politic.

Reaction to the New York City Municipal Authority decision was predictable:
"I realize it's not all of them, but I don't want to have to go down to a memorial where my son died on 9/11 and look at a mosque," said retired FDNY Deputy Chief Jim Riches - whose son Jim, a firefighter, was killed on 9/11.
"If you ask me, it's a religion of hate," said Riches, who did not attend the hearing.
Rosemary Cain of Massapequa, L.I., whose son, Firefighter George Cain, 35, was killed in the 2001 attacks, called the project a "slap in the face."
"I think it's despicable. That's sacred ground," said Cain, who also did not attend the meeting.
"How could anybody give them permission to build a mosque there? It tarnishes the area."
Let's go one step further and say Islam tarnishes our country.
Why is this happening in America?
Why, only nine years after the 9/11 attack do we have a president who apologizes for America, bows and scrapes to foreign leaders, so clearly favors islam and goes out of his way to discredit Israel?
Why do liberal journalists act so disappointed when
terrorist attacks on America (four since Obama became President), both failed and successful, come from an Islamist instead of a Tea Partier?
Why do we tolerate Muslim footbaths in our airports and colleges, creeping Sharia in our legal system and Islamicization in our schools?
Why can't we call out the enemy for what they are and say that we are fighting an Islamic onslaught on our own shores?
The answer is simple...political correctness is strangling our ability to protect ourselves.
A recent exchange between Congressman Lamar Smith and Attorney General and terrorist enabler Eric Holder clearly demonstrates the problem: (h/t Powerline Blog)
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: Let me go to my next question, which is -- in -- in the case of all three attempts in the last year, the terrorist attempts, one of which was successful, those individuals have had ties to radical Islam. Do you feel that these individuals might have been incited to take the actions that they did because of radical Islam?
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: Because of?
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: Radical Islam.
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions. It's -- one, I think you have to look at each individual case. I mean, we are in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action.
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: Yes, but radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why people...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: But was radical Islam one of them?
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why people do things. Some of them are potentially religious...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: OK. But all I'm asking is if you think among those variety of reasons radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did.
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: You see, you say radical Islam. I mean, I think those people who espouse a -- a version of Islam that is not...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: Are you uncomfortable attributing any other actions to radical Islam? It sounds like it.
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: No, I don't want to say anything negative about a religion that is not...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: No, no. I'm not talking about religion. I'm talking about radical Islam. I'm not talking about the general religion.
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: Right. And I'm saying that a person, like Anwar Awlaki, for instance, who has a version of Islam that is not consistent with the teachings of it...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: But...
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: ... and who espouses a radical version...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: But then is -- could radical Islam had motivated these individuals to take the steps that they did?
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: I certainly think that it's possible that people who espouse a radical version of Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad.
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: OK. And could it have been the case in one of these three instances?
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: Could that have been the case?
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: Yes, could -- again, could one of these three individuals have been incited by radical Islam? Apparently, you feel that that they could've been.
ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: Well, I think potentially incited by people who have a view of Islam that is inconsistent with...
CONGRESSMAN SMITH: OK. Mr. A.G., it's hard to get an answer yes or no, but let me go on to my next question.
The Koran commands Muslims and their enablers to lie (taqqia) to advance Islam's ends. If we are not careful our culture and our country will be slowly absorbed into an Islamic collective. Like Star Trek's Borg the media and the administration would have us believe resistance is futile...tolerance should prevail. Muslims, Obama and the media preach that Islam is a religion of peace. That is taqqia in practice. The fact is that everywhere Islam butts up against another culture there is war.
Hopefully in November 2010 we begin to fight back on all levels with the election of a truely conservative Congress. The next step is to throw out the progressives and their Muslim apologists in the White House in 2012.
Europe is gone both economically and culturally. Decades of deficit spending and Muslim immigration have weakened the inner spirit of Europeans and turned the continent into Eurabia.
Can it happen here? As we are not by nature given to dhimmitude as easily as Europeans, and we are armed, it won't happen here as easily. But we must be eternally vigilant.
