Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Ground Zero Declaration Challenges Muslims


The Ground Zero Declaration came to my attention through a Google Alert that led to a post by Ali Sina at Faith Freedom.org. The brainchild of Billy Rojas and Centroids, the declaration  begins by affirming the Declaration of Independence & Bill of Rights.

After the affirmation, it lists four prticular items: freedom of religion, equal protection, human dignity and peaceful assembly & free speech.

In that fourth item, it specifies freedom to criticize religions, which will stick in Islam’s eye like a sharp grain of sand.

The next section carries an interesting heading: “The Problem With Cordoba House”.  The concluding sentence of that section is particularly interesting.  “Allowing Muslims to build an Islamic center so near the scene of Islam-inspired death implies that neither we nor they have truly learned the painful lessons of 9/11.”

The next section, “What We Want”, leads off with a most direct sentence.  “If Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is serious about promoting a new Reformed Islam that divorces itself completely from the ideology that brought down the World Trade Center, we ask him and his colleagues to officially:”

There follows an enumerated list of three things no Muslim can do  without incurring the penalty of apostasy and a demand that the Ground Zero Mosque project be postponed, reconfigured or relocated.

The concluding sentence has more clarity than I can expect from centrists; this has real merit.  “We do not believe a commitment to freedom means giving our enemies the freedom to destroy us.”

That last sentence is the clincher for me.  I hope it will be for you, too.  Lets make this happen!
