The Ground Zero Mosque Flap: Masterful Prestidigitation

So some Muslims want to open a Muslim community center near the World Trade Center site…now reverently called “Ground Zero.” Both left and right are using this topic to inflame emotions of the American sheeple. It’s working beautifully. Both sides are shouting “FIRE” in a crowded theater, so to speak. And when sheeple’s emotions are inflamed, it cancels out objective thought, and turns eyes away from tyranny to the most recent magic trick performed by DC and their media.

“Ground Zero.” Where have I heard that term used before? Oh, now I remember. Wikipedia says “The Oxford English Dictionary, citing the use of the term in a 1946 New York Times report on the destroyed city of Hiroshima, defines “ground zero” as “that part of the ground situated immediately under an exploding bomb, especially an atomic one.”

In Hiroshima…then in Nagasaki. When Harry Truman authorized the vaporization of hundreds of thousands of Japanese CIVILIANS at a time when the Japanese diplomats were BEGGING Washington for terms of surrender other than unconditional surrender.

Did the “Ground Zero” chickens come home to roost?

Don’t you have to wonder WHY Muslims want to place a Muslim Community Center in a commercial area where nobody lives? How many other Muslim Community Centers in the New York area are comparatively placed outside neighborhoods? But how many blocks away is a Muslim presence acceptable? If four blocks away is still on “hallowed ground,” just where does the hallowed part end?

Certainly, if property rights mean anything (and they mean less in New York than anywhere I can think…think “rent control”) one should be able to use one’s property any way one chooses. But the Muslims know how this is being “spun” here in America. So why push forward with an “in your face” challenge that will engender such animosity? Even if the animosity is not founded in reality? Is that the message of the Quran? I’m told Islam is all about peace.

Ever read the Quaran? It’s on my reading table right now. I find it hard to read and unfamiliar in style. And, some of those verses we hear about concerning the treatment of women and dealing with infidels are in there. But the Bible has some pretty gruesome stories in it, like all the times the children of Israel wiped out other tribes…men, women, children and their animals…all because God didn’t like them. So, Christians ought to be a little more tolerant of Muslims and the book upon which they founded their religion, since allegedly Christians, Jews and Muslims ALL serve the same God…and the Christians and Jews both revere the Old Testament, which contains all that premeditated murder and gore.

The Catholic Church…”Ground Zero” of all Christian faiths…doesn’t have a really great track record for religious tolerance over its history. Remember the Crusades…against Muslims? Remember the Inquisition…against heretics?

“Xenophobia” is the uncontrollable or unreasonable fear of foreigners. This is a curious fear, especially when practiced by the citizens of a country founded by and built by foreigners. We Americans have become xenophobia specialists.

Look what we did over time to the Native Americans that were here when we arrived in North America. Hell, we started that a century or more before the US became a nation. Remember the French and Indian War of 1754? Remember the 1838 Trail of Tears? Washington still has a Bureau of Indian Affairs that manages Native Americans like a day care center gone horribly wrong.

Look what we did to African blacks that we imported as slaves over a span of over 150 YEARS. And don’t tell me it was a Southern thing. Many of the ship owners ferrying blacks between Africa and America were from Northern colonies.

Look what Washington did to the island kingdom of Hawai’i in 1893. Washington rolled in military troops and overthrew the royal family of Hawai’i and stole the whole chain of islands. President Bill Clinton issued a formal apology in 1993, but Washington didn’t give back the islands.

Look what we did to the Japanese Americans here in 1941. Washington rounded them up and placed them in concentration camps for the duration of WWII. Their property was seized and not returned to them. This little atrocity happened a mere 69 years ago.

The building at 45 Park Place, New York, is a thirteen story building. It is not ON or NEAR the WTC site. It’s nearly four blocks away. But there is a church DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET from the WTC property…St. Paul’s Chapel…and The Catholic Church of St. Peter (at Church and Barclay Streets) is closer to the WTC than the Muslim property. Apparently, it’s OK with Americans that Christian churches are near Ground Zero, but not any other flavors.

It is not a mosque. It will reportedly have a culinary school and a basketball court, along with a prayer hall. Find me another Muslim mosque with backboards, hoops, ovens and stand mixers.

9-11 Facts

What was the reason we invaded Iraq and presided over the execution of our former puppet dictator, Saddam Hussein? To avenge the 9-11 attack…even when that excuse was an overt lie by the Bush Administration? Over 4,000 of our young people got killed in Iraq, and tens of thousands were wounded…allegedly avenging the deaths of 3,000 at the World Trade Center. And CONSERVATIVE estimates from around the world say that over 1 million Iraqis died as a result of our acts of vengeance. And America is STILL paying $3 a gallon for gasoline. Someone tell me the logic of that Washington decision.

DC is so incompetent, it can’t even invade a country and steal their oil correctly. But it’s the best in the world at filling body bags.

Osama bin Laden issued two fatwas (an interpretation of the Quran) — in 1996 and then again in 1998—that Muslims should kill civilians and military personnel from the United States and allied countries until they withdraw support for Israel and withdraw military forces from Islamic countries.

Now it’s nine years later. We still have military boots on the ground in Saudi Arabia, but now also in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. I don’t think Washington has grasped cause and effect yet.

There may have been radical Islamists on the airliners that struck the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. There may have been radical Islamists on board the other two planes that crashed…one in Pennsylvania and one into the Pentagon.

But hear me loud and clear.

Never in human history has a multi-story building collapsed into its own footprint without the use of high explosives. Towers One and Two came down into their own footprints. Then, later in the same day, Tower Seven…a 47-story skyscraper not struck by either plane…collapsed into its own footprint. Didn’t tip over. Straight down at the speed of gravity.

If a building is damaged and begins to collapse, it will fall in the direction of the weakest structural members. The main challenge in bringing a building down is controlling which way it falls. Ideally, a blasting crew will be able to tumble the building over on one side, into a parking lot or other open area. This sort of blast is the easiest to execute, and it is generally the safest way to go. Tipping a building over is something like felling a tree. To topple the building to the north, the blasters detonate explosives on the north side of the building first, in the same way you would chop into a tree from the north side if you wanted it to fall in that direction. Blasters may also secure steel cables to support columns in the building, so that they are pulled a certain way as they crumble.

Sometimes, though, a building is surrounded by structures that must be preserved. In this case, the blasters proceed with a true implosion, demolishing the building so that it collapses straight down into its own footprint (the total area at the base of the building). This feat requires such skill that only a handful of demolition companies in the world will attempt it.

I’m not directly going to state exactly WHO destroyed the World Trade Center buildings. I do not know exactly who did it. But I will emphatically state that something OTHER than jets hitting Towers One, Two and Seven caused their collapse. It takes MONTHS, not hours…for a highly trained demolition company to rig a building to be “pulled,” the term for explosive demolition. So, no matter who pulled these three buildings…they planned it months ahead of 9-11-01.

Washington and its lapdog media have successfully laid the 9-11 attack at the feet of Islam, all the while knowing that they did not do it. And every time DC needs to divert the attention of the American sheeple from its truest agenda, it trots out a new anti-Islam story that pisses off the populace. And look at all the talking heads that inflame this newest story. They are either (a) too stupid to know the truth, or (b) complicit in the perpetuation of a lie. So the media gives a hummer to Washington while humming the National Anthem. And Washington does a reach-around on the media as their reward. The parties raise a bunch of money on a bullshit story, and the media sells a bunch of advertising. And the nation only gets to watch.

If you still believe in the US Constitution, you still believe that the words of the First Amendment are true. That says that “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the FREE EXERCISE thereof.” So that allegedly limits Washington from interfering in religious matters. But if the states want to make laws respecting the establishment or prohibition of religion, they are entirely within their rights to do so.

Is it too much to ask of Americans that they practice what they preach? Tolerance includes putting up with viewpoints diametrically opposed to your own. As long as Muslims are not issuing a call to action to murder infidels, Islam is all talk. As Jesus said, “first take the speck out of your own eye rather than pointing out the beam that is in your neighbor’s eye.”

Finally, here is how all this folderol ties to the topic of Secession. Any state that secedes will not be invading other nations. It will mind its own business. The new nation will be able to break its ties with the criminal elements in Washington DC and forge new friendships with the nations of the world…even Muslim nations.

Secession is the Hope for Mankind. Who will be first?

  1. Thomas Jospeh Quigley says:

    For a long time now, I have not believed the official government story of 9/11. I believe that 9/11 was an “inside job” – that forces within our governemnt made it happen on purpose (MIHOP).

    9/11 is at least the second greatest government cover-up in my lifeteime; the first was the assassination of JFK – when forces within our government deciced that JFK was not the right man for the job of enslaving America to the new world order so they installed LBJ – a profoundly evil man – to get the job done!

    I could also include Waco, Ruby Ridge, and of course the Oklahoma City bombing as other brutal examples of government sactioned terror, murder, and tyranny!

    I have not been able to get outraged about the so-called Ground Zero mosque because I KNOW that We are being manipualted by our governemnt over the ground zero mosque just ws we were on September 11, 2001.

    But does that mean that Obama is a man of Constitutional principles and religious tolerance Hell NO! He is a usurper and NOT constitutionally eligible to be POTUS. He is nothing more than a pawn of the New World Order to further the constitutional, economic, and social destruction of our nation – just like George W. Bush was! Obama is a living breathing testament to the fact that our Constitution is DEAD!

    On the other hand is Islam a religion of peace? Hell NO! Islam is though – ironically – the U S Government’s religion of choice. Why? Because – like our governemnt – Islam uses force – deadly force if necessary – to assert its will over a people.

    I am a Christian and believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the light. He is the ONLY truth. Are there things wrong with organized relgion? Hell yes; too many to list right now, but this I will say, true Christianity is liberating, while Islam is a THUG religion.

    That is why the Socialists, Facists, Communists, and Federalists running DC Love Islam – and that includes Bush II as well as Obama – becuase Islam is an oppressive relgion and if there is one thing the US Government loves, it is OPPRESION!

    9/11 was the last straw for me! Obama’s false presidency is a log on the fire of secession for me. (Just to be fair, I never believed that Bush II’s election was legitimate, but would Gore have been a better POTUS? Hell, Hell, Hell NO! Gore is a certifiable lunatic and a profound liar like the rest of fiends running DC!)

    I want to die a FREE MAN – not a slave to a lying and false government! And for me secession is the only answer to the tyranny on the Potomac!



    Probably shortly after the November elections do nothing to help Arizona maintain its sovereignty. Many people are holding their fire and keeping their powder dry until November.Sadly, though, the November elections will not change Washington. Washington is an incurable cancer that needs to be removed.

  2. Another interesting question is what happened to the rest of the plane that hit the Pentagon so neatly it sheered of the wall on the left vertically? The dictionary on the stand isn’t even disturbed…

  3. Jared says:

    Christians and Muslims do not serve the same God. Our God has a son, Jesus Christ. Muslims say Allah has no son. Therefore, they cannot possibly be the same being.

    Christianity is based first and foremost on the teachings of Jesus and the apostles in the New Testament, and you won’t find anything in there about conquering villages and wiping them out. So no, Christians having disdain for the Islam call to kill infidels is not hypocritical because Old Testament Hebrews committed acts of violence on God’s command.

    Otherwise, I 100% agree with your post aside from the implication of absolute property rights. I certainly agree that Washington D.C. doesn’t have any business telling New Yorkers what they can and can’t build in their city. I do believe, however, that New Yorkers should have the authority to have influence in this way. American civilization has never been founded on absolute and unlimited private property rights. Rather, it was founded on the sovereign will of the people within local communities.

    For example: Let us say that Joe buys some property next to an elementary school in a small town. Joe then decides he would like to build an adult sex toy and video store in town. Would you honestly argue that the people of the small town should be expected to allow this to happen just because the porn shop is on private property?

    How about Bob, a wealthy landowner in a town consisting of an 80% homosexual population selling 1,000 acres of farm land on the outskirts of town. Bob then decides he wants to split up the property into hundreds of lots and sell them primarily to fundamentalist Christians that are hostile to homosexuality. If you are a true believer in absolute property rights, you would argue that it’s just tough luck for the homosexuals and they’ll just have to pack up and leave town whenever the Christians inevitably start attacking their way of life.

    As a side bar, I am not personally a supporter of homosexuality. The example would be just as valid if the roles were reversed. The point is even property rights, though the most sacred and important cornerstone of liberty, must have a limit in the setting of a local community.

    As a Christian, I sympathize with the opposition that many of my brothers and sisters in Christ have for the Muslim structure near “ground zero” of the 9/11 attacks. With that being said, I do not support using the police power of the Federal government to enforce this view. I believe the decision of whether to allow the Muslim structure should be made by the people in New York, or even more specifically, the people in lower Manhattan. I don’t live in New York, so quite honestly I don’t care very much one way or the other.

    The idea of secession from a traditional American standpoint is to restore sovereign control to people at a local level, not the individual level – at least not in every aspect of life. This is the natural order of human society.
