The Mosque.....another in the PRISCILLA'S POST series!
“Cordoba was the first European city conquered by a Muslim army (in 711). Then a mosque was built there, and the rest of Spain was conquered“. This quote is from the POST written by Mr. Navon and previously linked HERE.
It is no coincidence that this mosque is slated to include the name Cordoba.
The debate surrounding the building of this mosque is centered on freedom of religion and legality. Neither of these is the issue. The issue is motive and the symbolism of declaring victory by essentially dancing on the graves of innocents murdered in the name of Islam. Would anyone stand for the vandalizing of a loved one’s grave?
Now, to the advance of Islam and the appeasement and capitulation to the Islamists: this is what Mayor Bloomberg is guilty of. If freedom of religion were the overriding issue, the city of New York would not have stalled the rebuilding of the Greek Orthodox Church near ground zero and this site for the mosque.
As for the President’s position, we have to remember that Obama himself stated in one of his books that, "if things turn ugly, I’ll stand with the muslims". I think he knows and understands exactly what this mosque will stand for. This is not appeasement or naivete. It's pretty clear to me that Obama has no love for America, but for Islam? I think so.
Furthermore, those on the left have chosen to align themselves with Islam. Indirectly perhaps, but aligned just the same. What the left may not realize is that the Islamists are using them as well.
Thanks, Pris... Your last line is particularly true, in my opinion.
