Cordoba Mosque of 9/11 Wants Federal Funding

This is a picture of the Cordoba Mosque in Spain. What does the Cordoba Mosque and the Dome of the Rock have in common?

Approximately 70% of New Yorkers oppose building a huge $100 million dollar mosque two blocks from the 9/11 site where the Twin Towers fell from the ramming of planes with Saudi Arabian Muslims filled with jihad against America. By August 18th, CNN poll showed that 68% of New Yorkers were against building the proposed mosque so close to the site of disaster. Then, on August 19th, The Siena Research found 63% opposed with 27% supportive of building. The Jewish Defense League is against it because it will cause pain for those who lost friends and family in the disaster, not comfort.

It's called the Cordoba Initiative and Park51, title of the Cordoba Mosque project at Ground Zero. One reason it stings is that it is named after "The Great Mosque" in Cordoba, Spain. In the 700's around the time Islam was born, the Christian church of Saint Vincent sat on the foundation of a Roman temple. The Moors (Arabs) attacked and tore it down. It was replaced with The Great Mosque which became the 2nd most important mosque after Mecca.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf should have called it by a different name. This is inflamatory. His wife, Daisy Khan explains that it will be modeled after a Jewish Community Center and sounds absolutely delicious. They both refuse to build in a different spot. It is to be opened on the 10th anniversary of the Twin Towers attack.

Now they are asking for federal funding of around $5,000,000 whereas in the beginning they assured everyone that they would have all the necessary funding.

St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was destroyed on 9/11. They have been asking ever since the incident for funds to rebuild but without any success. Shouldn't the Iman do the generous thing and offer money to this church to rebuild instead of glorifying his religion with a a grand mosque?

Many people read history and feel that Islam has shown dominance over the West in insidious ways. For instance, the Dome of the Rock in East Jerusalem, next door to the Western Wall, was actually built on the ruins of Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount. That's why it's so close. Now the Muslims are tying to proclaim that Jews have no connection to Jerusalem at all and want to take over all of East Jerusalem for their capital saying that they own the Western Wall.

Another example is the Al-Aqsa Mosque built on the southern end of the Temple Mount and over the Basilica of St. Mary of Justinian. The Grand Mosque of Damascus was erected over the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. These are but a few examples.

At a time of austerity in spending, I doubt very much if our leaders are going to fund this mosque. I do hope that the mayor of New York takes pity on the destroyed Greek Church and does something to allow them to rebuild on their own site. They have been rebuffed enough times. Shouldn't a destroyed church take precedent over a new grandiose mosque?
12/9/10: Pamela Geller's website has that the 95 yr old St. Nicholas Church at ground zero is suing for rights to rebuild. Good for them. I hope they win.
