"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

More On The Mosque At Ground Zero

Here's a short clip from Fox News about the plans to build a 13-storey cultural centre and mosque at Ground Zero.  As you'd expect, locals aren't enthusiastic.

  1. Unfortunately, these Islamic centres of "cultural learning" too often hide the insidious factions of extreme Islam. It happens in the UK and has most recently been exposed in Tower Hamlets.

    All other faiths integrate without offending the resident populations. Why can't Islam?

  2. Hi Sue, I've no idea. Islam certainly seems to have more than its fair share of extremists and fundamentalist nutjobs than other faiths. It's more than a religion, it's an ideological lifestyle which defines itself by its separation from others. In the end, I can't see this mosque going ahead - it's a monstrous affront.

  4. Good God,
    What have we and America come to?
    Combating extremism?
    Well, I can tell a fanatic when I see one.
    I wonder if there would be a reaction at the mosque in which someone gave a lecture, say, condemning Islaam, or arguing for free speech - the right to publish a cartoon or two, for example
