“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – attributed to Edmund Burke
Mayor Michael Bloomberg was asked about his position on Rick Lazio’s call for an investigation into the Cordoba Initiative constructing a mega mosque near Ground Zero. The mayor claims any investigation into the mosque would be “out of character for what this nation stands for and the way we conduct ourselves.”
NY 1 reports, “Bloomberg blasted Lazio’s comment by saying an investigation would be un-American.”
Bloomberg added, “I don’t think we’re going to go and start investigating funding sources for religious organizations or vetting people who preach or pray in religious organizations.”
Like the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo, the mayor is hiding behind the noble tenet of religious freedom to evade the political hot potato of investigating potentially dangerous operatives.
The Cordoba Institute has paid in cash nearly five-million dollars for the property in question; the funding of this project is not entirely revealed.
What we do know is that the president of the Cordoba Initiative desires Sharia law in the U.S., which will usurp the Constitution and inhibit religious freedom, free speech and women’s rights; those aforementioned violations of the Constitution are mild compared to the full implications of a Sharia compliant U.S.
What say you Mayor Bloomberg?
Additionally, the Initiative intending to construct the mosque near Ground Zero is partially funded by Malaysia, a foreign government actively & successfully pursuing Sharia law. Imam Rauf president of the Cordoba Initiative has launched the Sharia Project, which will advance its cause just steps away from Ground Zero.
This transcends religion; stopping such an insult protects freedom of religion in this country.
Most NYC voters oppose the mosque near Ground Zero; Mr. Mayor, are they un-American?
The Muslim terrorist that killed innocents in Fort Hood was allowed to plan and ultimately wage his jihad due to political correctness and cowardice. Every radical regime needed useful idiots in the West to further their agenda.
Michael Bloomberg is the mayor of a city where nearly 3,000 of his neighbors were killed by Muslim terrorists and he forgot quicker than those not in this city or country.
Under the mayor’s stewardship Ground Zero remains a vacant hole, for nearly 10-years; that runs counter to the character of this nation!
Meanwhile, steps away from the footprint of the World Trade Center towers, Islamic operatives not friendly to this nation’s laws are blessed by Andrew Cuomo and their designs are fast-tracked by the mayor and City Council.
The mayor has a penchant for dishonoring 9/11 victims and continues his errant and dare it be said un-American ways.
Mayor Bloomberg’s refusal to at least endorse an investigation into suspicious activity of an Initiative that calls for Sharia law and Dawa from the rubble of the World Trade Center runs counter to the character of this nation.
