Ground Zero Mosque Gains Traction behind Radical Imam

A major controversy has erupted over plans to construct a mammoth mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero. The outfit called The Cordoba Initiative, which seeks to build the mosque, is led by a radical Islamic extremist, who blames America for the terrorist attacks that murdered 3,000 innocents on American soil. Unfortunately, it’s looking more and more likely that the mosque is going to be built.

According to AFP: “The [mosque] project on August 3 got the unanimous backing from New York’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, which said the 1850s building on Park Street it is to replace was not a protected historical landmark.”

As AFP points out, the mosque has some powerful backers, including New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who claims the project will provide a symbol of religious freedom and “build a bridge between the West and the Muslim world.”

And who’s going to lead this new symbol of religious tolerance? Radical Islamic extremist Feisal Abdul Rauf.

Here’s what Rauf said during a 60 Minutes interview about the 9/11 terrorist attacks: “I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened. But the United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.”

He didn’t stop there.
