Readers of First In may remember my motivation for starting this blog was in large part to refute the delirium put out by the so-called 9/11 “Truthers”. Let me be very clear as a professional firefighter with years of experience, especially working in high-rise buildings I have nothing but contempt for these people and the evil bile they spew. They accuse our government of being responsible for the atrocity of 911. No matter how you feel about politicians it is simply unacceptable to make groundless charges of mass murder.
I have read their claims and have gone over them in the interest of professional research and I am quite convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are utter and complete non-sense unworthy of further serious examination. Like global warming they are discredited and exposed. They cannot withstand serious examination as Popular Mechanics has proved.
Now in a stunning turn of events it has been revealed that the man at the center of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy is a close associate of one of these nut bags. It is being reported that Imam Raufs close associate Faiz Khan is a 9/11 “Truther” and has preached those beliefs openly. That is irrefutable and documented.
For those of us who saw through the B.S. rhetoric about this”Moderate Muslim” Imam just wanting to build an “interfaith” facility where all religions can come together from the beginning, this is icing on the cake. Moderate Muslim first is an oxy-moron as there are no interfaith houses of worship ANYWHERE in the Muslim world. Islam seeks to dominate, not integrate.
What we consider moderate and what Muslims consider moderate are two entirely different concepts. And for the record history has a very short list of heroic moderates. So the fact that this Imam would have or continues to have an association with someone like this is all I need to confirm my suspicions that this is nothing more than a “Victory Mosque” and those behind it don’t give a rat’s ass about being “moderate” whatever that may mean.
Remember the first World Trade Center bombing plot was hatched in… wait for it… A Brooklyn Mosque! So we would do ourselves a solid and wake up to the dangers that radical Islam represents. There are still many very bad, motivated people, mostly Muslim, who want to kill as many of us as possible. There is nothing we can give them or do for them except convert to Islam that will call them off. Until we grow up and begin to deal with facts and not emotions, until we decide to behave as responsible adults and confront the forces of evil lined up against us we will continue to give the enemy a clear shot at our lives and those of our loved ones.
