Ground Zero – A Haunted Mosque?
Its 14th August 2010 and one of the News Headlines is that Obama has given the “go ahead” for a Mosque to be built close to Ground Zero. I am a Fan of Obama. Infact, when people say bad things about him I feel like I have to defend him and I do respond to such people with sarcastic comments. Some might even be found in our Forums. However, I do not like his decision of a Mosque to be built near Ground Zero. May the souls of all the innocent who died on 9/11 rest in peace.
Do we have to remind Obama that these people were killed by a group of muslims who believe in Jihad “Holy War”. I am aware that not all Muslims are terrorists and I have muslim friends, but the point is this is an extremely sensitive issue and looking at it generally, the decision should be reviewed.
Obamas comments: "The 9/11 attacks were a deeply traumatic event for our country. The pain and suffering experienced by those who lost loved ones is unimaginable.”
My Response: “Exactly!! So, why endorse it?"

People jumping for their life
If these are his thoughts then its enough for him to know it’s not a good idea for this project to carry on. It will bring pain to many in America and many more around the world. I don’t live in America but I wish someone would ask Obama to listen to what the Citizens of America are saying.
A recent poll suggests 53% of New Yorkers oppose it. Many families of those killed in the 9/11 incident have mounted a campaign to block the community centre and Several conservative leaders in the United States have also denounced the plans. Source Doesn’t this count for anything, Obama?
Why shouldn’t the Mosque be built?
- In my humble I opinion, I think it's like rubbing salt in the wound of those who lost friends and family that day.
- The Mosque represents the Islamists – most of them believe in Jihad.
- It’s insensitive. (actually that sums up the first two points)
…and who on earth asked for permission to build the mosque anyway?
Why did Obama give the Go-Ahead?
I also wonder why Obama approved it.
- Was the decision made to appease Al-Qaida, so they don’t strike again?
- Is it because Obama has Muslim roots? (Muslim Dad)
- Would his decision still be the same, if a member of his family had been caught up in either of those Twin Towers?
Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if so many things went wrong with the building because the innocent blood of those who died, will cry out and probably haunt it forever.
I apologise if my article offends anyone particularly to any Muslim friends but I hope you understand how people view this situation and I would be glad to read your views. I shiver everytime I watch the video of those planes crashing into the Twin Towers. Knowing one’s family was in one of those Towers and was killed like that is traumatic. No amount of Therapy can erase it and erecting a memorial of what caused it close by, will just make those hearts bleed again.
So Obama, you are the “most powerful” man in the world and can change your decision at any point. “Yes, you Can??"
The whole world is watching…..
For those who lost their lives.....
Should a Mosque be built near Ground Zero?
Food for thought...
Source: What is Jihad?
Islam never tolerates unprovoked aggression from its own side; Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an not to begin hostilities, embark on any act of aggression, violate the rights of others, or harm the innocent. Even hurting or destroying animals or trees is forbidden.
War is waged only to defend the religious community against oppression and persecution, because the Qur'an says that "persecution is worse than slaughter" and "let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression" (Qur'an 2:190-193). Therefore, if non-Muslims are peaceful or indifferent to Islam, there is no justified reason to declare war on them.
