‘10,000’ throng to stop Ground Zero mosque

Oh well, at least some Americans are outraged by Muslims building a 13-story Islamic mosque a stones-throw from Ground Zero….

As many as 10,000 protesters from across the country – including family members who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001 – took to the streets in New York City Sunday to fight construction of a 13-story Islamic mosque to be built just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah.

Now the organizers plan to sue the federal government to designate the site as a war memorial.

The new Islamic mosque plans to open its doors on Sept. 11, 2011 – the 10th anniversary of that fateful day when time stood still as millions of Americans grieved the loss of loved ones, friends, family members, co-workers and strangers.

The group Stop Islamization of America, or SIOA, led by Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs blogger and columnist, hosted a “No 9/11 Mosque” rally at Ground Zero June 6 to protest the mosque construction. Geller hosted the event with SIOA Associate Director Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

“The only Muslim center that should be built in the shadow of the World Trade Center is one that is devoted to expunging the Quran and all Islamic teachings of the violent jihad that they prescribe, as well as all hateful texts and incitement to violence,” Geller said in a release announcing the protest.

They noted that thousands of protesters came from Washington state, California, Texas, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, South Carolina, Florida and elsewhere.

“They were Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, atheists, Muslims of conscience,” Spencer wrote. “They were lovers of freedom.”

Spencer said despite the crowd’s size and the presence of media outlets from around the world, the U.S. mainstream media failed to show.
Protesters are planning to rally again in September and also when construction begins. Geller and Spenser say they plan to sue the federal government to designate the building as a historic landmark and war memorial.

“We will be filing suit against the federal government, asking that the Burlington Coat Factory site where the mega-mosque is going to be built be designated a war memorial, a la Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, etc., because of the part of one of the 9/11 airplanes that crashed into the roof there, and that is in the makeshift mosque that Muslims are using there now,” Spencer wrote. “And above all: we will never give up.”

Geller added, “There is a large piece of an airplane in that building. That is a war memorial. Instead of a mega mosque at Ground Zero, let’s build a 9/11 war memorial to the victims. … We will protest again in September and stage sit-ins in front of the mosque should they try to break ground. Three thousand good and decent Americans did not die in vain.”
