Insensitive Islam and Twin Towers Memorial

Pamela Gellar and Michael Ghouse were on a Sean Hannity radio program recently debating the merits (or lack thereof) of building a mega-Mosque in the very shadow of the Islamic attack that brought down the Twin Towers and killed thousands of Americas who were the victims of an act jihad.

(Gellar on Huckabee about the Mosque near Twin Towers)

The Hannity interview I listened to is on YouTube. The video ran the sound track of the Hannity broadcast with a slide show of the Twin Tower attacks which showed Americans jumping to their death resulting from the intense heat of fire in the upper portions of the Towers. Interspersed through the slide show are some factual snippets relating to deaths, the jumpers and the attack. I first found this video at a Jihad Watch post which can be viewed HERE.

In the interview Geller effectively counters the deceptive use of Ghouse’s language to justify an Islamic Mosque right next to the emerging Twin Towers memorial.

Just as a side comment I heard Hannity begin to introduce Gellar as a member of SIOA. He stopped himself short and referenced Geller to her popular blog Atlas Shrugs. I suspect Hannity backtracked on the intro because SIOA stands for Stop Islamization of America. The best place to discover the SIOA agenda is to go to their Facebook page. Really though the name should be self-explanatory. SIOA wishes to prevent the evil aspects of Islam and Sharia Law to gain a foothold of acceptance in America. The reasoning obviously centers around cultural differences: Islam is a theopolitical force that is intolerant to religious freedom, free speech and the basic liberties espoused by the U.S. Constitution.

In essence Islam is diametrically opposed to the American way of Life. All those Leftists concerned about using the “Living Constitution” view of separation of Church and State (which is an inimical interpretation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment) what meet their worst nightmare if Islam and Sharia Law would ever become entrenched in America. Islam demands that the fabric of Community and the fabric of government become one in which the Community submits to an Islamic government (State Established) according to the writ of the Quran, Hadith, Sunna and Sira of Islam. Such a submission would be the termination of free speech, religious liberty, State criticism and many if not most civil rights. The concept of segregation would be reinstituted. The difference being segregation would not be along a racial paradigm; rather segregation would be along a religious paradigm. Which is to say any religions that were permitted to be practiced would forced into a position in which the adherents would be discriminated against including paying higher taxes than Muslims and forced to humble themselves publicly to Muslims.

What are the implications of being humbled in the presence of Muslims?

Non-Muslims would not be allowed civic services that Muslims would be allowed. There would be Muslims only restaurants, rest rooms, motels and so forth. Utilities would be less expensive for Muslims than non-Muslims. Public help (entitlement programs) would be on a Muslim only basis. Only Mosques could be built and only Churches in existence can survive with the added humiliation to get special permission to exact building repairs. In essence all the accomplishments of the Civil Rights Movement in America would be reversed yet with the irony of all non-Muslims (Blacks, Whites, Native Americans, Asians etc.) experiencing all the negative attributes Blacks suffered from the end of the Civil War through the 1960’s.

The disgrace of Islamic Supremacism for America gaining acceptance would relegate Leftists, Secular Humanists, Christians, atheists, Homosexuals, the female gender and all other concepts that might compete with Islam as second class citizens constantly in danger of capital punishment.

Yes it is a worst case scenario, but is it a scenario Americans should allow to begin to go because of our ingrained tolerance for all religions?
