Ali Velshi, who CNN passes off as an economic genius, is a comparative religions major from Canada. He is a Democrat propagandist, as are all of CNN’s anchors.
When Constantinople fell to the Muslims, they slaughtered the inhabitants, then rebuilt the City and invited Christians and Jews to come and do business in the city.
Nothing new here, then of course there were several Islamic invasions of Western Europe from the springboard of Spain, but hey, the Prince paid cash..
Neither are American, either.
“Cordoba was one of the finest times in relations between the major religions.” Do as we say, remember your place, and we won’t kill you, at least not today. Yup. Very ecumenical. But then, that seems to be CNN’s view of the latitude to be given to the Obama government. “They aren’t asctually shooting you, are they? So shut up and just pay your increased taxes, already.”
That's a good point. You may be right.
JournOlistas at work.
They’re everywhere and we are on to them.
They are wasting their breath.
That’s mild! Check out this article;
Proving once again, that Time doesn't Shiite from Shinola
One wonders why the left worships this bunch of headchoppers. Maybe it’s because headchopper central wants to eliminate Western Civilization too.
These people will not love us if we bend over for them, they will merely laugh at our foolishness and continue on their centuries-long plans.
“They'll LIKE us if we do nothing after the WTC was bombed!”
“They'll LIKE us if we do nothing after the Cole was bombed!”
“They'll LIKE us if we elect Obama and get rid of the eeeevil Republicans!”
No. They'll LIKE it when we are subjugated or dead.
These people cherry-pick from history in order to put their hearers to sleep. What’s the agenda here?
Interfaith discourse? What about the places in the World where members of other religions are killed by muslims? Hard to have discourse when you’re dead. Also, look at what happens to muslims who convert. That’s hardly a tolerant attitude towards other religions.
I am so sick of the liberals stance on this issue that I am SCREAMING THIS OVERLOOKED POINT that no one who is fighting to prevent this mosque from being erected on this sight is saying. This is obviously the most simple counter to it being built at this location.
If you liberals are true proponents of the First Amendment:
You cannot claim to be supporting the mosque based on the Constitutional guarantee of Freedom of Religion - Religious Expression in America for the Islamic faith when you have denied Christians in America the right to display a cross on the highway, put up a Nativity Scene at Christmas, even say a prayer aloud that someone might hear and find "offensive."
You cannot tell us that those Christian displays or acts are offense to some few minorities and that we have to be sensitive to their feelings...and then, tell the MAJORITY of Americans that consideration of their feelings are not equally important when it comes to the Muslim desires to do what is offensive to millions.
You cannot expect that our feelings will not be offended every time there is a picture of that mosque, or we walk past it...or, more notably...EVERY DAY, every time the Islamic call to prayer blasts out at us from a tower and speaker on the building that stands in the shadow of the murder of thousands and the Islamic Jihadist attack on our country.
If you truly espouse Freedom of Religion, you liberals, then you will apply an equal bit of consideration of the feelings of the overwhelming American public.
The daily, continual offense to us that this building - at this location - will strike upon our hearts and memories requires the same sensitivity to our feelings that you have forced us to have in denying us our Constitutional right for freedom of religion/religious expression (even requiring us to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas in order to be "politically correct") because just a few non-Christians might, possibly, OCCASIONALLY, be offended.

All these churches doing the interfaith dance with the creep, or claiming he is a "Christian", may as well be of this denomination:
The Church of Hitler was an actual serious effort mounted by people in the National Alliance in 2005. Crashed at once. Maybe they just lacked an Obama.
By calling this
Mosque Worship Center Interfaith Center Community Center YMCA "Cordoba House", Rauf is offering the sophisticates of New York the same deal that was offered to the people of Cordoba. They can become willing subjects of the ascendant Islamic Empire, and in return they will recieve a favored position amongst the Dhimmi, which can be quite profitable.
The sad thing is that so many New Yorkers appear to be considering the offer favorably...
Keep your eyes open. Eventually a solution to this "problem" will be suggested. I don't think the opposition has reached the fever pitch needed to present the already-determined solution. I wonder what the elites will propose and who will be the messenger.
