The Islamic Centre
There is no Muslim population in the part of Manhattan where the Islamic center will be built.
Most Muslims who live in New York are in North Brooklyn.
To build a Center in North Brooklyn would be far cheaper then in Manhattan, but then, the point is not an Islamic Center.
The point is to get an Islamic presence as close to where the World Trade Center stood as possible. The Point is to prove the victory of Islam over Christianity.
Americans are very protective of their Rights. Freedom of Religion is tightly gripped. All one has to do is bring an issue into the ambit of the Bill of Rights to win.
Objections to the building of an Islamic center in spitting distance of Ground Zero were batted away by using Freedom of Religion against reality.
Reality is that to prove Islam was victorious,
a Center needs to be as close as possible to the site.
The name 'Cordoba House' is significant.
Although most people are unaware, when the Muslims invaded Spain they destroyed a Cathedral and built a Mosque where it had stood.
The name of the city was Cordoba.
It was one of the greatest triumphs of Islam over Christianity.
Although most Americans are unaware, the destruction of the World Trade Center was hailed throughout Islamic countries as a great victory. A particular text message went from cell phone to cell phone, from Syria to Iran to Gaza to Egypt,
"They Did Not Miss"
is the translation.
Al-Qaeda is hailed in many nations such as Pakistan, where Osama Bin Laden is a hero.
Far from it being a 'minority' of Muslims who support Al-Qaeda it is a minority which does not.
That minority is often the corrupt leadership which is supported by Western nations. If the United States did not support the Saud family they would have long been executed.
That funding of various Islamic organisations defined as terrorist comes from all parts of the Muslim world can not be doubted. Nor that the Islamic Center receives funding from these organisations.
That the Islamic world has been able to convince the Western World it is only a tiny minority that supports Al-Qaeda is how the Islamic world uses American doctrine for their own benefit.
