Think about this when you see and hear America's mainstream media attacking as bigots those who oppose the Victory Mosque at the 9/11 memorial site.
After the September 11th attacks, The New York Times praised Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, spiritual leader at the Dar al-Hijra mosque in Virginia, as a new generation of "Moderate Muslim" leader capable of understanding both East and West. Fast forward a few years and we find the New York Times most favored Muslim, Anwar Al-Awlaki, had been the theological mentor to two of the 9/11 hijackers, to Nidal Malik Hassan, the murderer of the Fort Hood soldiers, to the Christmas Day 2009 bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and to the Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad. How about getting it wrong New York Times? Any apology to the American people for your terrible advice?
On 9 December 2004, NBC Newsman Brian Williams was gushing about "the TV industry's newest experiment, 'Bridges TV,' the new 'American-Muslim lifestyle network,'" the brainchild of banker Muzzamil Hassan and his wife to portray positve images of Muslims. Brian Williams even broadcast the domestic bliss of their Muslim home. That certainly ended when Mr. Hassan beheaded Mrs. Hassan when she filed for divorce, and then claimed he was justified because of his wife's unlawful behavior towards him.
In 1993, an earlier controversy erupted when residents opposed a mosque in a suburb of Washington, D.C. They wanted it shut down claiming they were subjected to rude behavior and ill will from the Mosque attendees. "Worshipers of many faiths said closing the popular mosque . . . would amount to discrimination against one of the area's fastest growing religions". That mosque was Dar al-Hijra, now known as the "9/11 mosque," for its role in the murders of thousands of innocent Americans on American soil.
On 4 August 2010, the Boston Globe editorial proclaimed: "The simple fact is there's nothing threatening about the proposed Islamic center, which is being spearheaded by Feisal Abdul Rauf, one of the most respected moderate Muslim leaders in the country." Are you still going to listen to America's Media when they call you bigots?
Our 'Moderate Muslim' Problem
FLASHBACK to a Muslim Victory Celebration One Year Ago: Mass Murderer Al-Megrahi was convicted in 2001, to serve 27 years in prison for the 1988 bombing of 272 souls, mostly Americans, over Lockerbie, Scotland. Last year the Scottish government freed him early on compassionate grounds as he was said to suffering from cancer. When he arrived in his Muslim homeland, he was given a hero's welcome.
