4 UNDISPUTABL REASONS THE MOSQUE SHOULD NOT BE BUILT
by Moody Adams 1. FREEDOM OF RELIGION DOES NOT APPLY BECAUSE ISLAM IS NOT JUST A RELIGION Islam is a system of government and laws wrapped in a religious cloak. All Muslims believe tha Koran is the infallible word of their god, Allah. They believe the Koran’s laws are superior to man’s law, and its form of government is superior to man’s. Already, the law of the Koran is applied to Harvard University’s swimming pool, where men and women are no longer allowed to swim together. England now has courts based on the Koran. 2. 9/11 WAS AN ATTACK BY ISLAM, NOT JUST FANATICS. The 9/11 attackers were clearly obeying the Islamic religion. Despite political spin, the group that attacked us did not do it for vengeance for any actions of America; they did it for Allah. The leader wrote in a letter the night before the attack, “Do not seek revenge for yourself. Strike for God's sake.” They gave up their lives in the belief they would be rewarded by Allah with a home in Paradise: “Be happy, optimistic calm because you are heading for a deed that God loves and will accept [as a good deed]. It will be the day, God willing, you spend with the women of paradise.” The attackers were obeying the Islamic holy book when they hit the Trade Towers: Koran 2:193 says, “Fight therefore against them until . . . the only worship be that of God Allah).” Muhammad gave the proper interpretation of this command when he slaughtered a defensless tribe of Jews: “In the war of Khaiber after the inhabitants of Banu Qurayza was surrendered, Allah’s apostle killed all the able/adult men, and the (prophet) took all women and children as captives (Ghani mateer maal)” (Sahi Buchari Hadiths, #143, page 700). So called “radical Muslims” are simply those who obey the Koran taught in all their mosques.
3. ONLY REASON IS A SYMBOL OF ISLAMIC VICTORY OVER U.S. The project is named the “Cordoba Initiative,” which refers to the Cordova mosque in Spain built to commemorate Islam’s conquering of Spain. The only imaginable reason for choosing this name is to symbolize Islam’s conquering of the U.S. The heavy population of Muslims is in Brooklyn, not on Manhattan Island. There are already 100 mosques in New York, proving there is no discrimination. Muslims claim they are trying to “build bridges with Christians and Jews.” This mosque is alienating more people than any thing they have done since 9/11.
4. FREEDOM OF RELIGION DOES NOT GUARANTEE FREEDOM TO BUILD anywhere you want to. The radical church group that has been protesting at military funerals was restricted from getting too close to the burial, because it offended the grieving family. Likewise, the government has the responsibility to restrict Muslims from being too close to the grieving families of 9/11.
