It’s a dang good question!
This is the advert paid for by a group in NYC trying to get the proposed mosque moved to somewhere not quite so close to where terrorists killed over 3,000 Americans on 9/11. But the group had to sue the city of New York who was refusing to depict this horrible part of our history as it happened. The Metropolitan Transit Authority objected to showing the juxtaposition of the World Trade Center towers to the proposed mosque. The MTA repeatedly made the group headed by Pamela Geller of Stop Islamization of America change the ad to be more PC; “Remove the plane, you cannot show the smoke, you cannot have the arrows connecting the 2 buildings”, etc., until finally SIOA filed suit. And they prevailed. The ads will run as originally submitted over a month ago and will begin appearing on MTA buses in New York City next week.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the guy promoting this mosque refuses to denounce Hamas (who as recently as late July sent rockets into Israel hitting a hydrotherapy center for disabled kids), and blames America for 9/11. To add insult to injury our own State Dept. instead of investigating Abdul’s terrorist ties and where the $100 Million for the construction of the mosque is coming from, has decided to send him to the Middle East as an envoy to explain Western Culture!
State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley stated,
“We do have a program whereby we send people from Muslim communities here in this country around the world to help people overseas understand our society and the role of religion within our society.”
What are we nuts? This is just more appeasement. Has everyone in our government gone stark raving mad? I think so.
