Muslims To Build 2nd Mosque Near WTC

From Fox News:

Muslims in NYC Planning to Build Second, Smaller Mosque Near Ground Zero

Ed Barnes

May 17, 2010

As controversy surrounds the construction of a 13-story mosque just two blocks from Ground Zero, FOX News has learned that an effort to place a second mosque close to the hallowed site in New York City is in its advanced stages. 

The Masjid Mosque has raised $8.5 million and is seeking an additional $2.5 million to begin construction. While it apparently has not settled on a final location, it has told donors it plans to build very close to where 3,000 people were killed in the September 11 terror attacks.

In fact, the website appealing for donations boldly states that it plans to “build the ‘House of Allah’ next to the World Trade Center. Help us raise the flag of ‘LA ILLAH ILLA ALLAH’ in downtown Manhattan."

One source said he believed the planners are considering a five-story building on 23 Park Place, closer to Ground Zero than the 13-story mosque the Cordoba Initiative is planning to build. But a tax record search shows that 23 Park Place is in private hands and has not changed owners since 2008.

Unlike the massive $100 million Cordoba House mosque, the Masjid Mosque is small – and it is no stranger to the neighborhood. Since 1970 it had been located at 12 Warren Street, about four blocks north of the World Trade Center, in a neat but nondescript industrial space that once housed a printing shop. It lost its lease in 2008 when the building was sold, and it was evicted from its second-floor prayer space on May 25 of that year. Since then it has been operating out a cramped basement space in a nearby building at 20 Warren Street.

On Friday evenings the mosque, which is popular with street vendors and taxi drivers, becomes so crowded that worshipers spill onto nearby sidewalks to pray in what has come to be a community event

Masjid mosque leaders claim on their website that they are deeply involved in converting people to Islam and run a special program to convert those who are interested

Meanwhile, try building a church anywhere in a Muslim country.

    I am not saying this will happen but there is a very good chance that lighting will strike twice in the same location.

    • NoNeoCommies says:

      If these Mosques are destroyed, it will be considered a more heinous crime than the WTC attack (at least by the Muslim world and the Liberal press).
      Anything done against militant Muslims is bad, anything they do to us is “righteous vengeance”.

    If Cain sought vengeance sevenfold, Lamech seeks it seventy-sevenfold.

    It doesn’t ever stop until we stand up to it.

    They will insult and attack our spirit again and again. A brief history of Israel in the last century yields this fact easily enough.

    They will use our own belief in tolerance, freedom and forgiveness to try and crush us.

    It is the way of those who seek to crush liberty in the name of the god of fairness, social justice, revenge. They are encouraged to act whenever comforted by a cloak of deception – in this case, it’s a regime that not-so-silently seeks to divide its servants by race, class, age and/or beliefs.

    If they had raised 8.5 million – uhm why did they not just renew their lease and stay where they were – since they were already in the area and (according to this ‘news’ article) part of the ‘community’?

    It is an insult – I am not for sending them packing forever from America (coming close, but right now, still on the individual & religious freedom side) but exactly why at such a place(s) as Ground Zero? Seems like a point is attempting to be made – and the anyone/anything but standing up for America crowd in NYC are enabling such an insult to happen.

    So next time they attempt to blow up NYC – I’m coming down on the deport all of ’em, nuke ’em till they glow and oh btw NYC – rebuild it yourself – don’t expect a single taxpayer penny from me – You have enabled this since 1993 – so you are just getting what you deserve.

    ‘Masjid mosque leaders claim on their website that they are deeply involved in converting people to Islam and run a special program to convert those who are interested’ – I cannot believe that so many people in NYC are so damn blind as to what is happening to them right in front of their faces.

    8.5 million – the majority of American Christian churches would salivate and fall to their knees Thanking God if they received a quarter of that amount. And of course under the church/IRS laws – we will never know how much of that is from foreign sources bent on American destruction.

    Curious similarity between the Muslim in-your-face style and Obamy’s in-your-face style, isn’t it?

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Well, eventually, all this will have to blow up in their faces. There is nothing more satisfying that seeing a smart-ass get horse-kicked.

  5. Right of the People says:

    Isn’t the word mosque Arabic for terrorist training center?

    Just sayin’.

  6. grits says:

    Of course they plan to build mosques on ground they’ve “taken.” That’s how Islam has always worked.

  7. Mithrandir says:

    It’s GOOD to see Muslims gaining ground in liberal areas. NO REALLY, the clash of those 2 cultures will undo the other. All those activists things liberals love will go right out the window!
    Think of all the things liberals love, that Muslims hate:

    Homosexuality—Muslims behead them
    Abortion—Muslims make it illegal
    Women’s Rights—Muslims will put them in a burqua
    Atheism— Muslims see them as infidels
    Communism—Muslims hate communism
    Permissiveness—Muslims are strict
    Vanity—Muslims favor extreme humility
    Lawyers—Shar’ia law
    Children’s rights—Muslims reserve the right to kill or do what they want with their own children
    Anti-spanking—Muslims kill those who embarrass their family members
    Animal rights—Muslims have no such vocabulary
    Environmental rights—Muslims only follow the Quran

      Mith, it’s an interesting point, but England is far in the lead in this respect, and what we have seen so far is a complete rollover by liberals. They give up without a fight.

      Ultimately, I think that will change, but the early results are not good.

      And, as you know, a similar pattern is emerging in the US.

    • jobeth says:

      Great point about England. You don’t want to go there…especially London. And I love the country…but the OLD England.

      It seems the muslims are not content to bomb us and send planes into our buildings.

      The mosques are just a smash it in your face insult to injury to the American people and culture. And the bleeding hearts want to allow it to happen. In fact they help all they can.

      Much the same way the Flt 93 memorial in PA is doing with the star and cresent design. I’m glad I got to see it before they ruin it with another muslim insult.

      And now….Now we have a Shite muslim woman for Miss USA….Even if she is also a pole dancer (Do you think that sets her up for an honor killing?)

      Of course…all going as planned…

  8. canary says:

    Well, now is the time to build the memorial at WTC One Nation Under God, A giant American Flag. WTC III. Make it out of cheap materials and give it a test run.
