You are probably all aware of the Cordoba House mosque that is planned for construction just 60 paces from Ground Zero. It is raising so much local and national opposition, ire, and controversy that there is now an effort by blue collar workers pledging NOT to work the construction site.
What has hit the blogs and internet over the weekend and caught fire is the information that St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, that was right at Ground Zero on 9/11/01 and was completely destroyed when one of the WTC towers collapsed on it is consistently being delayed in reconstruction of their historic church … while the mosque is being “fast-tracked”.
Retired Greek Orthodox Priest Fr. Constantine Simones wrote a piece condemning this, and the New York City bureaucracy that is allowing this to happen:
Shame on Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the members of his Landmarks Preservation Commission for voting 9-0 to allow the building of a Muslim mosque at ground zero in New York City.
Too many Americans are sleepwalking when it comes to understanding Islamic policies during the last 1,400 years of what I see as its brutal history. No one talks about St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was crushed by the collapsing Twin Towers.
Why is the mosque put on the fast track to construction when St. Nicholas’ reconstruction is being hindered by New York City bureaucracy?
Wake up, America, before it is too late. The Greek Orthodox faithful of the Balkans were enslaved by Islam for 500 years. Ask me what it means to live under the laws of Islam, under Sharia Law and the Hadith. Call me and I will provide a history lesson on what can be like to live under Islam extremists.
If you have the chance tonight you can tune into my BTR show, “Infidel’s Watch” and hear Fr. Constantine Simones as we discuss this issue and Father’s experiences with living under Islamic rule.
