Let the record show that there were patriots and freedom lovers who opposed and fought for years against an Islamic crescent pointing towards Mecca as a "memorial" to the American heroes who brought down the last plane taken over by islamic terrorists. We know what it is. Those brave souls on Flight 93 saved the Capitol. Clearly, an Islamic crescent memorial is a seditious insult to their heroic memory. Atlas has been very vocal against this insult for years, and many have been fighting this battle for quite some time. The leaders of the opposition, Tom Burnett Sr. (whose son Tom was one of those warriors who wrestled the plane away from the allahu akbar-screaming Muslims) and Alec Rawls, are on the vanguard of the fight. The bottom line is, why a crescent? Why not a flag? Or a monument to the group who managed to wrest control of the aircraft away from the Muslim terrrists? A crescent pointing to Mecca? As if that weren't bad enough, the dhimmi Park Service asked Muslim consultants and Islamic scholars for an honest consult? They can't be that clueless; they must be complicit. Shocka, the Muslims lied. Hey, they're supposed to. It is taqiyya, it's in the koran -- lie to advance Islam. Muslim consultants LIED to Park Service Error Theory The Park Service enlisted three outside consultants to assess whether the Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93 really can be seen as a giant mihrab: the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built. All three consultants, including two Islamic scholars, were blatantly and provably dishonest. Consultant #1 (details below) confirmed to the Park Service that the giant crescent (now called a broken circle) does indeed point almost exactly at Mecca, then when asked about it by the press, denied that there is any such thing as the direction to Mecca (insisting that "you can face any direction to face Mecca"). Consultant #2, a professor of Islamic architecture at MIT, lied about one of the most familiar of all Islamic doctrines, claiming that a legitimate mihrab must point exactly at Mecca. (The original Crescent of Embrace pointed less than 2° north of Mecca. The broken-circle "redesign" points less than 3° south of Mecca. Both highly accurate by Islamic standards.) Consultant #3, a professor of sharia law at Indiana University (!), came up with an almost comically dishonest rationale for dismissing concern... Continue »

Let's do a poll on how many Americans would be opposed if they knew that the U.S. government was paying for the Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf's Middle East tour. Yeah, right, he's not fund raising for the mosque. Who's monitoring his meetings? The Islamic supremacists' contempt for the American people is grotesque and typical. CNN Poll: 68% of American Voters Oppose Ground Zero Mosque Weekly Standard hat tip Dan F CNN polls registered voters on the Ground Zero mosque: As you may know, a group of Muslims in the U.S. plan to build a mosque two blocks from the site in New York City where the World Trade Center used to stand. Do you favor or oppose this plan? The response: Favor 29% Oppose 68% No opinion 3% So, according to the Center for American Progress, two out of every three voters are un-American bigots. I can only imagine that voters would be even more opposed to the U.S. government's funding of the Ground Zero Mosque imam's Middle East junket. Continue »
