Big, Cruel, Insensitive Mosque & Big, Timid US Media — The ad the networks won’t put on air.

Posted on: July 17, 2010

UPDATE.

Yes!

Sarah Palin has spoken, she doesn’t think the mosque is a good idea – it hurts!

Thanks, Governor!

Original Post Begins Here:

There should be no Muslim presence at Ground Zero.

The place where the towers collapsed due to terrorist attacks is hallowed ground, a sacred place.

A little known fact is that the exact building where the proposed mosque will go up is also a crash site, where debris from destroyed airplanes fell through the roof.

The WTC site is, in fact, a burial ground of Americans. The individuals who died there may be of all different faiths, or faithless. But they all died as Americans – yes, even illegal aliens, were there any – and, they died because they were Americans. The faith they lived and died for, was America!

And yet, local idiots prefer to wear blinders and ear plugs.

Here is Raymond Ibrahim at Pajamas Media on The Two Faces of the Ground Zero Mosque, (those who are well read will notice the nice echo off the title of the book by Stephen Schwartz, also quoted below, The Two Faces of Islam).

… the true history of Cordoba, not to mention the whole of Andalusia, is far less inspiring than what Western academics portray: the Christian city was conquered by Muslims around 711, its inhabitants slaughtered or enslaved. The original mosque of Cordoba — the namesake of the Ground Zero mosque — was built atop, and partly from the materials of, a Christian church.  Modern day Muslims are well aware of all this.  Such is the true — and ominous — legacy of Cordoba.

More pointedly, throughout Islam’s history, whenever a region was conquered, one of the first signs of consolidation was/is the erection of a mosque atop the  sacred sites of the vanquished: the pagan Ka‘ba temple in Arabia was converted into Islam’s holiest site, the mosque of Mecca; the al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site, was built atop Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem; the Umayyad Mosque was built atop the Church of St. John the Baptist; and the Hagia Sophia was converted into a mosque upon the conquest of Constantinople.

Why all this raking up of ancient history now? Because, the past is always with us, and when it comes to Islam, it will be so forever in future.  In Islam, it seems, the past, the present and the future, all meld into one incessant ideological force that washes away all else, including, and particularly, rational thought. And, those who forget history — you know, fill in the blanks!

Now, we have this sorry situation of this little ad that the big media doesn’t want Americans to see.

The cruel, insensitive gesture of building a mosque at Ground Zero, a burial place where Americans decided not to rebuild a new office complex, is a topic poorly understood in the Bush-hating, America of Obama style contrition.

Thanks to whoever uploaded this video:

Just a few years ago, such a notion would have been unthinkable, yet a mere decade after 9/11, on the very anniversary, Muslims want to rub America’s face into the hallowed ground of twin tower collapse.

And, to question the insensitivity of such monstrosity is Islamophobic, and the Big Media can’t digest it?

Such a topsy-turvy world, a travesty indeed!

This is the ad that got the media panties in a knot.

Ben Smith reports that CBS and NBC have refused to broadcast this ad.

Perhaps the networks object to the presenter of the ad, some GOP mouthpiece. So what, it’s a sentiment shared by millions of decent Americans and humans around the world. If facts are known, even millions more will see the bald truth for what it is – the mosque represents a victory column. A classic territorial imprinting and emotional usurpation established in Classical Islam since times post-founding of Islam. Thousands of sacred, holy, and otherwise notable pre-existing locales of significance, have been Islamized in the past 1400 years. Only an utterly naive or uninformed person will fail to see such historical force at Ground Zero.

Islam has a habit of conquering and usurping the locales of other peoples and other faiths.  Haghia Sophia, Temple Mount come to mind.

For some five centuries Muslims went on a rampage across what is modern India, slaughtering, subjugating, destroying temples, converting others to Islam at sword point, and erecting mosques atop or adjacent to temples. Besides those in Turkey, Jerusalem  and Europe,  Somanath Temple, Kashi Vishwanth Temple, Triveni Prayag – these are just a few of the great sacred places of “other faiths’ that stand  as mute monuments to Islam’s brutality, blood thirst, conquest by hook or crook.

The construction of Muslim places of worship seem to be always preceded by bloody conquest, and always followed by acquiescence, subservience and jizzya.  Some scholars include the Taj Mahal also in such a list (but the secularized Indians are too timid to deal with such a possibility).

What is wrong with the ad above? What is inaccurate about it? Who does it really offend to speak the truth? What hurt could it cause Muslims to be sensitive to other faiths? Why does it always have to be Others who need to be sensitive to Muslims? After all, no Muslim country – and there are over a dozen countries that are constitutionally Islamic – allows a Hindu temple, Jewish synagogue or Buddhist chaitya, or even a Bahai’ center.

Simply put, why can’t the Muslims themselves offer to be sensitive, it’s not as though there is no shortage of space for a mosque.

To insist on a mosque near Ground Zero is nothing short of an insult, added to injury.

Why then is our media determined to keep this ad out of the public air waves? God only knows, but the American public will see it. They will see it via a thousand small and big blogs, websites, chat rooms, posts, tweets, emails and other bits of etherized text. Via this invisible force that will be filled with righteous indignation, cruel hurt, and raw wound.

Could it be that the behemoths of the public sphere chose simply be afraid of ad revenue, or chose ignorance of history. Could it be the men and women in cool ivory towers have not done their homework on history of civilization?

Just listen to the voices from across the spectrum:

Explanation of this habit  of triumphalism and supremacism can be found in this video by one Pat Condell. Once rare, nowadays one sees this video around in a lot of blogs.

Now, the emotionally dead, politically correct, secularists, anti-Zionists, Liberals, terrorist-comforters, jihad-justifiers, multi-cultural mavens, and would-be jizzya-payers –  dhimmis of all shades and stripes – are outraged that Pamela Geller has the audacity to organize a protest of this insensitive monstrosity.

Listen to her simple explanation of why we feel the outrage.

Another angry, wounded wail comes from Jules Crittenden, who lays bare the Islamists’ and/or their Apologists’ hypocrisy in it all:

…. still waiting for the greater Islamosphere to stop squawking about how it has been victimized and misunderstood in all of this business. If anyone is sincerely interested in fostering better relations with their Christian and Jewish brothers, how about a 15-story Islamic contrition and anti-terrorism center? Devoted, among other things, to Middle East democracy and free speech. They could call it New York House, or if that one’s taken, World Trade Center House, after a place where Muslims, Christians and Jews were getting along and prospering as well as they have at any time in history … living together, working together, voting together, all that, and on Sept. 11, 2001, dying together.

We refer to Stephen Suleiman Schwartz, an enthusiastic, self-styled scholar-mystic who embraced Islamic Spiritualism. Writes he:

…  Ground Zero Islamic facility rests on a support network linked to the anti-Jewish Mahathir and the Perdana-supported Gaza raiders, some notable servants of the Iranian clerical dictatorship, and an Egyptian property developer associated with the pro-Hamas chief of the Arab League. [  ]

Lazio and King are right, and Cuomo and Bloomberg are wrong. Aside from the matter of sensitivity to the families of the 9/11 victims and other Manhattanites who live near Ground Zero, if the friends and fans of Feisal Abdul Rauf believe his mosque plan is entirely above board, they should be the first to encourage full public disclosure of its backing and finances.   “A Mosque Grows Near Brooklyn –  The dubious Financing of ‘Cordoba House’ deserves scrutiny.”

From Sacred Sites:

The most imposing structure the Muslims found in Jerusalem was the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Nearby the Arab conquerors undertook to build a more spectacular edifice, the Dome of the Rock, not only to proclaim the supremacy of Islam, but also to ensure that the new followers of Islam would not be tempted by Christianity. The site chosen was the very same rock where previously had stood the Jupiter temple of the Romans and before that, the two temples of the Jews.

A final thought, one wonders what Sarah Palin thinks about all this. It’s time for our favorite Governor to pitch in with her reflection.
