The whole idea of having a mosque at Ground Zero is an abomination. It’s nothing less than an attempt by radical Muslims to celebrate the death of 3,000 Americans at the hands of Al-Qaeda while laughing at the stupidity of Americans who are willing to give them a pass in the name of political correctness.
So, it’s natural that there are angry protests about this utterly despicable attempt to defile the dead. Yet and still, this IS NOT the way to do it,
At one point, a portion of the crowd menacingly surrounded two Egyptian men who were speaking Arabic and were thought to be Muslims.
“Go home,” several shouted from the crowd.
“Get out,” others shouted.
In fact, the two men – Joseph Nassralla and Karam El Masry — were not Muslims at all. They turned out to be Egyptian Coptic Christians who work for a California-based Christian satellite TV station called “The Way.” Both said they had come to protest the mosque.
“I’m a Christian,” Nassralla shouted to the crowd, his eyes bulging and beads of sweat rolling down his face.
But it was no use. The protesters had become so angry at what they thought were Muslims that New York City police officers had to rush in and pull Nassralla and El Masry to safety.
“I flew nine hours in an airplane to come here,” a frustrated Nassralla said afterward.
What unbelievable morons!
First of all, it’s un-American and flat-out unconservative to say that people aren’t welcome to be on the same side as you are at a protest because of their race or religion. If it bugs you so much that there might be someone of a different race or religion in the crowd with you, become a socialist, join the KKK or the Nazi party, and vote for the Democrats. The Democrats have been ginning up this sort of hatred since they were formed and the targets just change from time to time. That’s how they do things. That’s not how we do things — and it’s not going to be. If you don’t like it, get the hell out of our movement.
Setting that aside, every moderate Muslim in America should be up in arms about this mosque. It’s nothing less than people claiming to be moderate Muslims trampling on the graves of the people who died on 9/11. If you’re a moderate Muslim, you should be speaking out today exactly the same way that Christians did after George Tiller was murdered. That is occurring, although the voices of dissent from Muslims should be much, much louder. In fact, there should swarms of Muslims protesting the mosque at Ground Zero — but, of course, no one wants to show up to do the right thing and get screamed at by idiots. How embarrassing is it to have people getting on a plane, flying out to New York to support the cause, and being treated like that? It’s outrageous.
Last but not least, hey idiots, they weren’t even Muslims. Did that handful of cretins in the crowd even know what Coptic Christians are? They shouldn’t be yelling at anybody, but if they’re going to do it, could they at least educate themselves enough to know who the hell they’re angry at?
Let me tell you something: You don’t win battles like this by coming off like fascists, screaming at people in the street — especially people on your side. If you’re angry, get angry at the radicals building this mosque. Get angry at the oblivious politicians in New York who are willing to debase the memory of all the people who were murdered at the World Trade Center in the name of political correctness. Those are the people you should be angry at, not a couple of Coptic Christians trying to stand up and do the right thing.
