Ground Zero Mosque

August 18, 2010

I thought everyone would like this quote, I think it is all you need to say to defend your opposition to the building of the Mosque at Ground Zero.

It is not a way of improving your rights and exercising your freedoms when you use these rights for insulting the most sacred values and symbols of others and inciting hatred…This is a very wrong, provocative path — unacceptable.”

I think that says it all.  Who said that, you ask?

It is from Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Turkish Secretary General of the Jeddah-based Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the world’s unique pan-Islamic political body, comprised of 57 members, including secular Turkey.  Here is the quote as printed in the American Thinker and here is the original audio.  Unfortunately he was stating his, and Islams, opposition to the printing of 12 CARTOONS

But, I would like to say thank you, to Mr. Ihsanoglu, for so eloquently stating the reason for opposing the Ground Zero Mosque.

Obama and the Ground Zero Mosque…

August 17, 2010

I was watching the news this past weekend, and was unsurprised to watch Obama step in a great big pile of …  Seriously, the President should have people around him that should be saying, “hey, Mr. President, watch your step, the first dog just took a dump right there.”

But then I heard this quote from Prsident Obama, “I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there,” he claimed. “I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about. In America, we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.” (I would have posted the video, but in a brief search was unable to find a link.  Bold is MY emphasis.)  At this point I had to yell at the TV.

NO!!  Mr. President, YOU are NOT treating everybody equally AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW, regardless of RACE.  YOU are refusing to ENFORCE EXISTING LAWS that deal with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.  You are even suing the state of Arizona for trying to help the federal government enforce the law.  IF someone is here ILLEGALLY, they have ALREADY BROKEN the LAW. 

Mr. President, enforce the existing laws, that is YOUR job!!!  Your job is NOT to try to jam through ObamaNONCare, or Cap and Tax, or Amnesty, or etc.  What say you, Mr. President?
