On February 23, 1945, after a fierce battle on the island called Iwo Jima, Marines of the 28th Regiment, Fifth Marine Division, hoisted the U.S. flag on a piece of pipe, at about 1020 Hrs at the top of Mount Suribachi. The flag raising was a sign of victory and the image captured through the lens of Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal is probably the most memorable icon of World War II.
Just as western civilization hoists flags to symbolize victory over conquered lands, Muslim armies have built mosques and converted churches and temples into mosques to symbolize their victory. In a public gathering in 1998, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, leader of the ruling Islamist party and current Prime Minister of Turkey, recited: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers..."
In his intelligently written piece on the history of mosques, Vijay Kumar, Republican Congressional Candidate in Tennessee's 5th CD begins by saying:
THE MUSLIM MOSQUE: A STATE WITHIN A STATEby Vijay KumarTHE KAABA IN MECCA WAS NOT BUILT AS AN ISLAMIC MOSQUE. It was an ancient temple that had been shared by polytheists, Christians, Jews, and Hindus, honoring 360 different deities. In 630 A.D. the Kaaba was captured by Islam in its military invasion and conquest of Mecca.
On the day of its capture, Muhammad delivered an address at the Kaaba in military dress and helmet, according to Ayatullah Ja’far Subhani in his book, “The Message”:
“Bear in mind that every claim of privilege, whether that of blood or property is abolished . . . I reject all claims relating to life and property and all imaginary honors of the past, and declare them to be baseless . . . A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim and all the Muslims are brothers of one another and constitute one hand as against the non-Muslims. The blood of every one of them is equal to that of others and even the smallest among them can make a promise on behalf of others.” —MuhammadMuhammad’s address at the Kaaba overthrew the Meccan government and declared all of Islam, anywhere in the world, to be a political and military state against all non-Muslims, regardless of the non-Muslims’ political, geographical, or national origins.
“If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him.” —Quran 3:85

Saudi Arabia, the Islamic nation that gave America 15 of the 19 radical Muslim terrorists that hijacked 4 airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, has been financing the construction of mosques all across the United States. Now, one of the most controversial mosques is about to begin construction in a place currently occupied with a building that was damaged during the World Trade Center attack. A large landing gear from one of the jets flown into one of the twin towers crashed through the roof and down through 5 floors of the former Burlington Coat Factory building at 43-45 Park Place, two blocks away from Ground Zero.
The plan to tear down the old Burlington Coat Factory building and construct a 15-story tall mega-mosque has so outraged New Yorkers that tens of thousands have demonstrated against it. Totally oblivious to the fact that over 57% of the voters in New York City oppose the mosque, Billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg and his City Planning Commission support it. Here are some of the photos taken from a recent protest of this mosque plan.
The demonstration was organized and promoted by Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch working together with their organization SIOA (Stop islamization of America) seen in the first photo below along with Singh Bhurji, the president of the NAMDHARI SIKH FOUNDATION. The foundation is a member of the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam (HRCARI). HRCARI is a coalition of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians from Sudan, Egypt and Iraq, moderate Muslims and Jews - who are victims and targets of radical Islam around the globe.
Singh Bhurji said earlier, "Radical Islamists are killing people in India, trying to dominate that nation. And here too they come with violence against "infidels." We are "infidels united," standing together, brown, black and white, against this epoch's fascist movement. Radical Islam wants to dominate entire world. They want everyone to surrender. Islam radical or otherwise. They want to put the Islamic flag on White House."
9/11 families were joined by immigrants from India, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Africa, Iran and Europe to show opposition to the construction of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero. Others flew in from overseas to speak or just to share their particular ethnic communities' experiences at the hands of Muslims.
Port Authority and NYPD officers kept watch over the rally and were well aware of the need for heightened security at this event. One of their own Port Authority officers, WTC Sergeant Alan T. De Vona was on duty at the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001, and was one of the first to help victims of the terrorist attack. He spoke these words to the SIOA rally:
Saudi Arabia, while providing the funds for constructing most of the mosques in America, does not permit any churches or synagogues in their strict Islamic country.
Hindu human rights activists Narain Kataria, Prasad Yalamanchi and unidentified friend came from Mississippi and Chicago with banners and flyers highlighting the radical statements of imam Rauf and his jihadist roots.
Considering that New York City is the main base for almost every television network news service, not one single network television camera was sent to cover this event.
Stephen Dyer and Gary Jules journalism students at York College, with Pamela Geller. Not one major network sent a satellite truck or camera crew to this event. Without bloggers this newsworthy event would have remained unknown to the public and history.
The proposed mega-mosque is scheduled to be unveiled on September 11, 2011, and of all the possible dates they had to defame this one with their obscene symbolism. Next will be the amplified wailing of the Arabic call to prayer that will be heard 5 times a day in the shadow of the World Trade Center grave. If that isn't a sign of Islamic conquest, I can't think of a better one. This mosque MUST NOT BE BUILT, EVER.
