Has the Ground Zero Mosque Project Returned?

Islamic cultural center to be built at site of 9/11 attacks.

The highly controversial ‘ground zero mosque’ project that was shelved after numerous protests appears to be back in the form of a 16,000-square-foot Islamic cultural center set to be built in the same place in Manhattan.

The ‘ground zero mosque’ (originally named Cordoba House) was envisioned as a 13-story Islamic community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan. It would have replaced a building that was damaged during the 9/11 attacks by plane parts and accommodated a “prayer space” for up to 2,000 Muslims.

Following widespread controversy and opposition from 9/11 families, the project was abandoned, but an Islamic cultural museum with a Muslim “prayer space” was subsequently built and recently completed.

However, it appears as though a larger new mosque is being planned for the site.

New York YIMBY reports, “Construction has also yet to begin on 51 Park Place, which is slated to become a 71-foot-tall, 16,000-square-foot Islamic cultural center.”

According to anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller, developer Sharif El-Gamal has learned from the ground zero mosque controversy and is trying to keep the new project secret.

“El-Gamal has many friends and allies among New York City’s political and media elites,” she writes. “It is likely that de Blasio city officials and the New York Times and other city papers all met with El-Gamal and agreed to keep the reporting on this project to an absolute minimum, so that it could get built without incurring the righteous anger of the public again. The first time around, they courted publicity and tried to make El-Gamal a hero. We demolished that and destroyed their plans. So now they’ve clearly decided to go ahead surreptitiously.”

Geller continues to insist that the notion of building a mosque at the site where Islamic terrorists slaughtered thousands of Americans is a deliberate provocation.

“It is…an Islamic pattern to build triumphal mosques on the cherished sites of conquered lands,” writes Geller. “History is riddled with triumphal mosques built on the sites of jihad attacks or appropriated from other religions: the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque on the site of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, and innumerable mosques built on the sites of Hindu temples that were demolished by Muslims all attest to that.”

UK Police May Change “Islamist Terrorism” to “Faith Claimed Terrorism”

Police in the UK say they are looking at dropping the term “Islamist terrorism” and replacing it with the term “faith-claimed terrorism” after lobbying from a Muslim organisation.

“The reform was requested by a Muslim police organisation that blamed the official use of “Islamist” and “jihadi” for negative perceptions and stereotypes, discrimination and Islamophobia,” reports the London Times.

According to the report, the issue was discussed last month by Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the national head of counterterrorism policing, during an online event which involved survivors, academics and advocacy groups.

The terms “terrorists abusing religious motivations” and “adherents of Osama bin Laden’s ideology” were also suggested as replacements for “Islamist terrorism,” while the word “jihadis” may also be dropped entirely.

Respondents on Twitter complained that changing the term was just a flagrant attempt to hide the reality of the foremost ideology driving terrorism.

“So despite it being an accurate portrayal of the perpetrators, due to the vast P.C. tsunami rushing up the beach they’re thinking of muddying the waters! Time to realize that not absolutely everything is said with a vicious bias these days,” remarked one.

“Political correctness WILL NOT solve these kind of problems,” added another.

“Why don’t the police just get on with their job and stop getting involved with political correctness,” said another.

UK Could Be Flooded With Hundreds of ISIS Terrorists After Shamima Begum Ruling

Conservative government proves completely ineffective once again.

Published

According to Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, the UK could be flooded with hundreds of ISIS terrorists after judges ruled ISIS bride Shamima Begum could return to the country to challenge her citizenship being stripped.

Begum left the country in February 2015 to join ISIS in Syria and lived there for three years during which she became pregnant.

It was subsequently reported that Begum pointed an automatic weapon at women in Syria for “wearing brightly colored shoes”. She also stitched bombs into suicide vests to ensure they exploded when taken off.

Begum also said during interviews that seeing decapitated heads in trash cans didn’t faze her because the victims were “enemies of Islam”.

Now Begum is free to return to the UK after judges ruled she could challenge the Home Office’s decision to make her stateless.

“It opens the door for all her fellow jihadi brides to return to Britain – and potentially their terrorist partners too,” said Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire.

“Most Brits will rightly think that when you swear allegiance to another country that declares war on Britain, that you have given up all the rights and protections and privileges of your British citizenship.”

“After today’s ruling it appears you have not.”

The ruling means the UK could see the return of Jack Letts – also known as Jihadi Jack – who declared himself to be an “enemy of Britain” after joining ISIS in Syria.

Some commentators pointed out the sheer uselessness and incompetence of a supposedly “Conservative” government with a huge parliamentary majority proving completely ineffective once again.

India: Huge Crowd Stops Islamic Cleric From Being Quarantined

That’s not social distancing.

Published

on

Video footage shows a huge crowd of Muslims in India flooding the street to prevent health authorities quarantining an Islamic scholar believed to be infected with coronavirus.

The incident took place in Balbhoonpura. The clip shows the huge mob not even attempting to practice “social distancing” as they angrily chant slogans and march through the street.

“Hundreds of Muslims came out onto the streets to prevent the Islamic cleric from being quarantined,” reports OpIndia.

“Some others were also to be quarantined. So far, 15 people in the area have been confirmed to have tested positive for the Wuhan Coronavirus, which includes 8 persons who had attended the Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi. The Imam and 14 other persons had come into contact with those COVID-19 patients, and that’s why they are needed to be quarantined and tested.”

Rumors began to spread that authorities were mistreating the Imam and other individuals, prompting the mob to swarm the streets in protest.

The crowd surrounded police and the medical team sent to the area, with local Muslim politicians having to be brought to calm them down. Some of the individuals seen protesting were members of the Deobandi School of Islam, which has been linked with Islamic extremism.

Despite the area being a hotspot for coronavirus, the Imam and the other individuals were not placed into quarantine.

Earlier this month, there was a similar incident in Pakistan where police attempted to enforce a quarantine law by closing down a mosque but were chased away by a violent mob.

A video out of Berlin also showed Muslim worshippers flagrantly violating Germany’s quarantine law and social distancing rules by congregating outside a mosque as police fail in attempting to disperse them.
