STOP CONSTRUCTION OF A MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO
Dr. Babu Suseelan
On behalf of the Hindus in America and the Indian American Intellectuals Forum, it gives me immense pleasure to know that American citizens have woken up to the suffocating, totalitarian closed political dogma which is paraded as a religion. Yes, 60% of Islamic scriptures are political dealing with treatment of infidels, non believers and 31% is about Jihad, how to make the infidel submit to Islam through deceit and terror.
Now the descendants of the closed political dogma which is meant for invasion, destruction, plunder and looting have decided to construct a 13 story Mosque cloaked as part of Cultural Center at Ground Zero. We are American citizens of different faiths protesting construction of a huge Mosque at sacred Ground Zero where more than 3000 people were killed by Islamic terrorists, for no other reason than that they are citizens of this country?
For us, Ground Zero is a war memorial, a burial ground, a sacred ground to American citizens. It invokes deep sentiments. Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the Islamic leader says the Mosque is intended to show good will. If the real intention is to show good will, given that it was destroyed with chantings of Allahu Akbar, should it not have worship centers for the religions of all those who lost their lives? Who is funding this so called center of tolerance? The very countries that spread intolerance. Why is the name Cordoba, which is the first historic symbol of conquest of West? Imam Rauf blamed America for 9/11. Know this, the 9/11 Mosque is not a symbol of understanding, it is a symbol of conquest. Imam Rauf is master of Taqiyya, the use of deception to forward Islam. Wafa Sultan, a former Muslim said so well. What Faisal Shahzad failed at Times Square with overt Jihad, Imam Rauf will succeed with stealth Jihad.
What is a Mosque? The Islamic Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said it clearly: “Mosques are our barracks, the Domes are helmets, the minarets are bayonets and the faithful are soldiers.” The Islamic Turkish prime minister’s version is same as that of Bin laden, Nasrallah, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Imam Awlaki. Almost every Islamic atrocities around the world are committed after fiery sermons during friday prayers. We got to be concerned. Why? 3 out of 4 Mosques in this country are Saudi funded that teach anti American values and/or has terrorist connections. 30,000 Muslim children are taught intolerance and outright rejection of American values. Tomorrow’s terrorist do not come Pakistan, it will come from this very soil, from the intolerant teachings of many Mosques in this country.
Throughout history Islamists have destroyed houses of worship built by virtually every other faith under the sun and build Mosques as symbol of conquests. Worldwide Islam has plundered tens of thousands of Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist Churches, Synagogues, Temples and Monasteries. They killed 270 million people and left devastations, in great countries taking their men as slaves and women as sex slaves sold in Arabian markets. Since 9/11 they murdered more than 75,000 people across more than 20 countries.
Islamists follow the example of Muhammad? Muhammad offered peace when he was cornered or outnumbered and then launched surprise attack. The Mosque is not their concession to peace and reconciliation but a powerful symbol of defiance and the excuse to build more of them, fooling us by waving olive branch before our eyes.
We Hindus and Sikhs have a story to tell. Islamists killed 80 million of us since 700 AD and continues to kill. They destroyed 3,000 glorious temples and build Mosques over them or used the material from the temples as foot stone for Mosque, as symbol of conquest. In 700 AD our country, the combined Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Bangla Desh had more than 25% of world’s GDP. The Islamists ravaged the country and brought it to knees in few hundred years. In just last 60 years Islamists in Pakistan wiped out infidel Hindus and Sikh populations from 25% to less than 1%. What happened to the millions? Islamists drove away 350,000 Kashmiri Hindus who are currently living as refugees in their own country in squalid camps for last 18 years. Between 2004-2008, India has largest number of terror deaths and incidents where many Hindu Temples are targeted, with the numbers of people died and the terror incidents being only next to Iraq. There is ongoing terrible genocide of Hindus in Bangla Desh with such discriminatory laws that categorizes all infidel property as Government property that can be taken over any time.
America is a great country today. If we are not vigilant, these Islamists will gradually chip out all that is build over 200+ years in short span of few decades or two generations. It happened in Persia, Egypt, Babylon, Mesopotamia, Damascus, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Bulgaria and Spain. Construction of a Mosque at Ground Zero may be viewed an attempt to repeat Islamic history in America. If build, this mega Mosque will represent an icon in the Islamic world for the global Jihad. If succeeded, Islamists will continue their onslaught onto all the key centers of this country and in the future these Mosques will be used at appropriate time to bring down this country, as it has been throughout the history. We should not allow Islamists plans to put a Mosque on top of Ground Zero the way they put Mosques at Ayodhya, Kashi, Mathura, Damascus, and on the Top of Temple Mount in Jerusalem. We should let Muslims know that is how this proposed Mosque is perceived and Muslims must have to be sensitive to that. Sensitivity is not one way traffic.
America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Freedom is all its form is our greatest legacy. Individual religious freedom is enshrined in our constitution. There is no document more important as a guarantor of religious freedom than the U.S constitution. We should not allow a huge barrack (Mosque) where Imams can preach hatred and train soldiers who has no faith in our constitution or liberty. We value freedom, creativity, reason and progressive ideas. Unlike us, people who follow the totalitarian political ideology originated in the 6th century do not seem to understand or cherish our constitution and the timeless principles of liberty. We value reason, creative thinking, and positive life. Jihadists hate reasoning, and love death. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is our motto. America remains as the last bastion of human freedom and democracy. We should not buckle, bend or collapse before the violent and stealth forces of Islam. There will be nothing stopping Islamic offensive after that. Do we have to invite or permit people who want to die for a fictitious entity and to exploit our freedom, and thrive in this country? As Imam Rauf himself admitted, Islamists love after life in heaven than this life and they get to that heaven by following the Islamic scriptures that makes it their duty of conducting Jihad of deceit and terror against Infidels. Not understanding what Islam and its history is, our cowardly and politically correct media and elected officials are causing great harm to this country and putting us in great danger.
The U.S constitution guarantees freedom of expression. It is a document of equality of man and women. Koran on the other hand is most dictatorial, intolerant, divisive and evil instigator against the non-Muslims calling them kaffir or infidels who are equivalent to Urine, Feces, Pigs and dead body. In this context the proposed Mosque in New York City is yet another daring act of sheer provocation that will become a rallying point for the world’s worst fascism of Islamists, whose scriptures spew hatred towards Jews and infidels that is many times worse than that of Hitler’s Mein Kampf? It will continue the invasion of America’s open institutions of Political, Intellectual, Finance as well as Media by Saudi using our petro dollars.
Unlike our constitution and laws, in every Islamic country government statute books are riddled with discriminatory laws. The blasphemy laws are used to harm non Muslims. The culture of intolerance is ingrained in every Islamist country’s laws and scriptures.. If Imam Rauf is sincere and committed for building bridges, he should work sincerely for removing the worst 164 Jihad verses in the Koran that advocates terrible violence and terrorism against infidels. He should work to build churches, synagogues and temples in Saudi Arabia. He should stop the terrorism and hate against Christians in Egypt and Sudan and on Hindus in Bangla Desh and India. He should work to remove the discriminatory laws in almost all Islamic countries. That is the way to build tolerance and bridges.
We are here to protest the Mosque construction. Why? I quote Einstein “ The world is a dangerous place not because there are bad people doing evil things, but it is because good people who do nothing about it,”
We are here today because our thoughts on American dream. A nation which does not proceed from noble thoughts is nothing at all. We are here to preserve our liberty, protect our democracy for us and the children yet to be born. We are here today to pay a price to protect our freedom from those who subscribes to totalitarian, conflict producing, divisive, reductionist dogma.
We appeal to all leaders of the free world to study the history of Islam. The media and the intellectuals have a great responsibility to study the intransigence of Islamists and understand the reasons behind the deafening silence of Muslims and dedicate their service to promote open, pluralistic, tolerant life in all Islamic nations.
Let the tragedy of India, the world’s largest democracy, not repeat itself in the U.S, the world’s strongest democracy.
My dear brothers and sisters of America, please rest assured that in this historic struggle against Islamic tyranny, you are not alone. The entire free world is ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with you.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
