In 1942, the US government approved a Japanese memorial and training center at the site of the sneak attack at Pearl Harbor.
Or in 1945, the London Planning Commission approved the construction of a a Nazi memorial and training center on the site of Trafalgar Square buildings destroyed by the Blitzkrieg.
Or in 2010, the City of New York approved a $100 million Islamic mosque and training center at the site of the former World Trade Center Islamic terror attack.
All three scenarios represent projects honoring ideologies which are hostile toward and contrary to the interests of the host nation and if they were actually approved would have caused a firestorm of righteous indignation. None of these scenarios is comprehensible.
Surreally, the third is true. Why? Because the out of touch powers that be feel compelled to prove that we are a tolerant nation at the request of hyper-intolerant Islam. It does not matter that Islam is an ideology that considers this nation a Great Satan to destroy or convert. It does not matter that such action would be a slap in the face to the sensibilities of a million New Yorkers and tens of millions of other Americans. It does not matter that what Allen West said is true: “when tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide."
New York City is in the process of approving a large Islamic Mosque next to “ground zero.” Read more about this suicidal cultural diversity on Atlas Shrugs HERE.
If Islam is rightfully defined as an all encompassing political “ideology” and not merely a “religion”, then automatic approval does not have to occur. It should be denied because the sponsoring organization promotes the same ideology behind the multiple World Trade Center atrocities. Why would we permit a known terrorist organization to build such a facility? Why?
