Here’s a man you’ve probably never heard of, but you’ll be really glad you listened to. He makes the best articulated argument I’ve heard for stopping the mosque at Ground Zero.

Well done!

    INSTANT CITIZENSHIP for this.. M A N!!!!!

    Damn straight, and AMEN, brother!

    CM Sackett (will stand AGAINST this 'mosque')

    ADDED: Hey, NEW YORK! If you get fed up and determined enough to STAND AND FIGHT this un-vasolene'd middle finger they're working to stick up your sky… I WILL STAND AND FIGHT WITH YOU (and work tirelessly to spread the word, nationwide)!

    By the way, I'm not mad… I'm just done.

  • brandishwar

    I've been listening to him since he started on YouTube. If you are religious you may not like much of what he has to say. In another video that was posted 2 years ago called “Appeasing Islam”, he says something else that is very pertinent: “We didn't earn this freedom. It was handed to us on a plate by people who did earn it with their lives. We don't own it. We're custodians of it.”

  • Dian5

    I wish there was a way to broadcast this loud enough for all of America to hear. This is the most honest talk i'v heard.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pgarst Pat Garst

    This mosque business at Ground Zero is beyond comprehension to THIS God-fearing American woman! The guy on the video lays it out really well in 6 minutes. If you don't like what's going either, take a listen. Peace and God Bless America!

  • KeninMontana

    This video needs to be seen by as many Americans as possible particularly those that reside in NYC. I wonder if any one has sent it to Rush,Hannity or Beck?

  • texasgirl46

    I've seen alot of his stuff…and I agree with brandiswar…If your a Christian…you won't want to listen to a lot of his stuff…he's big time atheist…and he's not afraid to talk about it either….

  • Stanxx

    He's making an argument against Islam in general. That won't fly in persuading tolerant people who need logical reasons to do something. There are much better arguments out there.

  • Stanxx

    Oops..

  • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Ozzie Castillo

    I really like what he said-

    You know how most people are trying to understand and asking questions, or I should say a little bit troubled in their gut about this. The guy said it exactly- It is a triumphant gesture for all of Islam and meant to display the land as conquered for Allah.

    Most people can't work up the balls to say that because they don't want to assume- Well there is nothing to assume about Islam- What many have done are evidence of the underlying will to establish Islamic rule over the world (infidels).

    Too bad our people here can't voice the same disgust with the situation and we have to rely on a British guy to make our point for us.

    Our politicians should be at least as angry if not more angry, and the New York community should stand up at every level and at every home.

    Although it is Constitutionally questionable to not allow them to build a mosque- it should be observed that it is sacred ground and that in order to maintain peace in the public square it must not go up. The intent is to poke a finger in the eye of the American people and to incite their final war in which I do believe edit:(that many Muslims think) that Islam will conquer the world.

    We should be smarter than this, and not play into that game. We have already conceded too much.

  • danieltumser

    I find it very amusing that you say this in response a video made by one of the most popular and most anti-religion atheists on youtube.

    Peace, and end the ground zero mosque.

  • danieltumser

    When you're right, you're right, once again Mr. Condell.

    We find allies in the strangest places don't we, Scoop? lol

    He's extremely liberal (classic definition) and extremely anti-religion, but he's no progressive and he's sincere. Even when you don't agree with him, you respect and, dare I say, like him.

  • KeninMontana

    Just because the man is an atheist,does not automatically invalidate what he is saying, it actually gives him an edge when looking at Isalm,because it does allow him to take a dispassioniate and reasoned approach free from any pre-existing faith based prejudices. What I'm saying is he really has nothing to gain by it theologically and can examine the whole of Islam for what it really is, a system by which to conquer and subjugate all of mankind. For, because he is an “infidel” he has more to lose than a person committed to a faith. If we are going to defeat Islam and stop its attempt to dominate the globe we need to move beyond religion to do it. Do not misinterpet what I am saying as advocating atheism in any way, what I am saying is do not make the mistake of listening to what he has to say through the filter of your chosen faith, and judging the validity because of his non-belief in your's or anyone else's God.

    This is another must read brief explanation of why we should fight having a mosque at Ground Zero.

  • texasgirl46

    I don't have a problem stepping outside the “echo chamber”….All I'm saying is that a lot of Christians might not like to hear what he has to say. I don't have a problem with it myself…

  • http://www.facebook.com/pgarst Pat Garst

    Well, Daniel, it did not even occur to me that this man was an atheist (I will pray for him). His argument against this mosque being built in the shadows of Ground Zero was sound and fair, and that was my point. I am curious why you would say this man was a POPULAR atheist…what makes him so popular?

  • danieltumser

    That he is even more articulate and humorous in his anti-religious dogma diatribes than Christopher Hitchens is what makes him popular, most likely.

    Also that he has the intellectual integrity to attack all religions for the transgressions against humanity that they all share (past and present) and is able to recognize that while Christianity did awful things in the past (and still is in Africa semi-indirectly) it is ISLAM today that is the clear and present danger to all the virtues of western civilization that we all value.

    He is extremely liberal but he is no cultural relativist or social egalitarian, and he holds the idea of political correctness/thought police in supreme contempt.

    People with that kind of balls and integrity stand out and are appreciated by the honest, and reviled by the cowardly disingenuous cultural apologists.

    I wasn't implying anything about his atheism, or my own, beyond that interesting times lend themselves to interesting allies.

    Having spent time in a leadership role supporting the aftermath of 9/11, I strongly support these comments and wish that the American public (especially those in NYC) would wake up and speak with a loud and persistent voice to stop this insanity.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/LHROI6DJ3T4HSCGMAB5DDSHGEE weedonald

    This is pure and simple bigotry! First off he equates the events of Sept.11 with Islam, when in actual fact it was a radical group of extremists who no more represented Islam than American neo-Nazis, white supremacists represent mainstream Christianity. Secondly he firmly maintains that building a mosque very near the ground zero site is intended as a not so subtle insult and provocation of American sensitivity about 9/11. However, it is equally possible that these people are sincerely trying to mend fences and honour those who died, NOT at the hands of Islam, but at the hands of hateful and extreme radicalism which is rejected by 98% of moderate Muslims worldwide and has killed many more good Muslims than it has non-Muslims.
    The so-called “Islamification” of Europe is in fact a total myth, created by Islamophobes, whose open agenda is to vilify Islam and Muslims worldwide, regardless of their beliefs. This type of slanderous and racist abuse, draped in the false veneer of patriotism and American “values” is de rigeur now with the mindless, ill-considered, anti-immigrant stance a minority of Americans and Europeans espouse. Blaming a conspiracy of “foreign” origins for the decline of God-fearing, true blue national traditions and liberties is perfectly reminiscent of the minority right-wing,neo-con, Facist, anti-democratic, anti-foreigner radicalism perpetrated by Hate groups, Despots and their ilk since zenophobia raised its ugly head decades ago.
    The absurd premise that building a mosque in a foreign nation is a sign to the residents of that nation that they have been “conquered” is akin to saying that everywhere we find foreign embassies,or libraries or churches…there is an implicit and explicit statement of assimilation.
    No one can deny that extremism, when it succeeds in gaining power,whether Islamic,Christian,right-wing or leftist, racially motivated, or greed driven, is fatal to an open,democratic, tolerant and egalitarian society and its values. However, this blanket condemnation of a group trying to build a mosque near a site which scars America's identity to this day is a disgracefully transparent attempt to stir bigotry, crude neo-nationalist xenophobia of the lowest order.
    I am not naive enough to believe that every Muslim naturally shares a profound love of democratic and egalitarian values, but neither am I so blinkered as to label every or any Muslim's efforts to show their pride in and love of God by building a shrine to Him as an obvious attempt at world domination!

    People like him represent one of many views,NOT the only, honest view as you claim.

    You obviously are the typical strafe and run libtard whose reading comprehension skills are somewhere south of nil. You should try reading posts before commenting,instead of plucking of few words and taking them completely out of context. You should also do a bit more research on topics,before using words and terms that are well above your paygrade, that way you might be able to disguise the facts about being the completely uninformed idiot that you are,for slightly longer than a few seconds.

    Mr. Woodstones or Woody Fielder,
    Do you remember during the Christian crusades that was led by the then Pope trying to reconvert Muslims and Jews back to christianity. Did they use the Bible or swords, arrow and bows spears and other wepons. they use it in the name of God and Christ. No one branded the crusaders as Christian fanatics. Let us not blame any religion for what a group of Tribal Fanatics did at ground ZERO, look what they are doing to their own Brothers and Sisters in their own country. The Americans, British, Germans and French gave them the weapons for oil now those weapons is in the fanatics hands and being used those same suppliers.
    If those suppliers Country are so peaceful why create mass distructive weapons to use on their own people and others. So let us not blame the Religion of Islam for what is happening in the world.
    If the Arabb world wants to take over the US all they have to do is withdraw all their investments and stop the flow of oil. So let us all live in peace and love, keeping religion out of our thoughts on this issue.
    I would say build a house of all religion on the site to remember those that were killed opn that site. Thank you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=552709052 Mohamed Alli

    Religion has nothing to do with what happened at Ground Zero. Those were fanatics from tribal background and those who felt that the Americans with their Military Mights had a lot to do with that.

  • woodtones

    Very intelligible and maybe I'm not as well versed as I could be with a little more education on the true religion of Islam, Thanks for your response! I am basically Christian and do have the impression the Crusaders were fanatics, disgraceful! What kind of human tries to force a belief on another? Crusaders, China/ Tibet, etc. I really like the concept of a 'house of all religion', all religions included and mentioned in the sake of humanity coming together for a universal solution to our sick state of affairs, built on that site- very good and appropriate thoughts! We are blessed as ones who acknowledge and respect all!~ Peace, Woody F.

  • titan0

    From his comments, I am sure that weedonald would enjoy some form of annoyance in the immediate vicinity of his home or most cherished location as that is exactly what he supports in this instance. He seems to ignore the comments that the mosque is being funded in all likelihood by a despotic regime that is not democratic and was indeed the home country of USA's most wanted target and their current “reason” for being in Afganistan. As to his comments about someone's lack of religion… making his argument null…. how does that work? Let condell attack all religions with words if he wishes. If they are true the majority will see even if their religious beliefs or otherwise differ. Are religions so insecure that debate is barred? Jesus Christ's parables and teachings were often as a result of questioning… it would seem that the “truth” he answered is still apparent. Truth obtained from honest debate.

  • larry11215

    Very valid point. Unfortunately, in the U.S. our constitution does provide for freedom of religion, and meanwhile, Mohammedanism is still classified as such. Most Americans would probably like to see our Mohammedan neighbors rounded up and shipped back to where they came from, but we can't really do that either. Is there any answer to this question? I don't think there is one. Mohammedans aren't going to change, and we are not going to get rid of them. What can we do that is rational and feasible to stop this ever spreading threat that has already destroyed much of Europe and is now spreading its tentacles across North America?

    weedonald, the one thing I keep coming back to is the lack of vocal and significant response to the extremist elements of the Islamic community by those who practice Islam and who do not use it to justify jihad. it's been almost 10 years since 9-11 and the moderate Islamic community isn't pushing back hard enough to counter the bastardization and exploitation of their beliefs. There is just as much wealth among moderate Islamists as there is behind jihadists — but very little of it is being used to help non-extremists drive the dialog. One reason I really don't like the idea of building a mosque at ground zero (besides the fact that it is really in poor taste to suggest it…it's just creepy) is that it's beng left to us, the people of NY who lost family and friends (in my case, my father) to make the case countering the extremists by being inclusive despite the sensitivity. There's been ample time for moderates to build or 'erect' a highly visible and impactful response to those who have stolen and misrepresented their religion — and they haven't done so. It offends me that we have to make their case to the world through tolerance. Where are they?

I am not against Islam in general – I am against terrorism, and unfortunately some members of islam disgrace it hard enough for others to speak against building a mosque at Ground Zero – at least in memory of those who's fallen. I was there that day in a dangerous zone. Lucky to have survived. How can we put a slayer over our dead bodies and let him laugh at our cries?!!!

  • depressed

    What I find incredible about this nation is that The People are spending all their time warring amongst themselves over trivial things like 'Health Care' and 'Socialism' or the lack of it, and all the while, the rest of the world is taking the country to the cleaners. With the wars we have become entangled in, and the economic struggles we all face, you'd thing we could put up a united front to combat these problems descending on us from overseas. But no, we bungle along, squabbling and bickering amongst ourselves, blaming each other and almost oblivious to the impending doom that faces us. It really boggles the mind.

    Lets face it, we are NOT progressing with the war against terror, and if you have any common sense at all, you'll realise that we never will win this 'war' unless we face some facts and take some drastic action. This, whether the bleeding hearts do-gooders like it or not, is a religious war, started by a bunch of fanatics who are distorting their religion to stir hatred and further their own ends. Their objective is total world domination, with all the peoples of the world subjected to their brutal way of life.

    Ultimately, there will be daily beheadings and dismemberments for the amusement of the hierarchy, and women will be subjected to a life of slavery, abuse and obedience. They will probably end up in harems at the beck and call of a bunch of sadistic perverts. Life will be like living in Roman times, instead of The Coliseum, these barbaric 'events' will be broadcast on TV networks. It will become a source of entertainment.

    If you fancy a way of life where you and your descendants are praying and banging heads on a carpet 10 times a day, then just carry on with the way you are doing things. Ignore the warning signs, ignore the civil unrest that is being preached in mosques all over the world and in your country.

    While the Muslim world has a fanatical sector to it, we need to treat all Muslims in the USA as if they belong to this fanatical group, simply because it is impossible to determine who is who. A need for these people to be contained in special camps is becoming more necessary. Those who are NOT responsible for this 'reign of terror' must accept that we cannot discern who is who and they must acquiesce to the strict control of their fellow believers. It's unfortunate for them, but we cannot continue with this nonsense. Radicals who preach dissent should be arrested and executed for treason. In particular, Muslims who have Middle Eastern features, must realise that if the average American cannot pronounce or spell your name, you will be asked further questions and be profiled at security points.

    The super rich countries Saudi Arabia and Iran promote the Muslim faith, yet their Muslim neighbors, like Yemen, Somalia and Ethiopia live in abject poverty. The world needs to be made aware of their selfishness because it is this poverty that is causing the extremism of the Muslim world. The poverty is a breeding ground for new recruits for Al Quaida etc.

    We need to accept the fact that world trading is no longer an option, it was a nice idea, but this has allowed people with bad ideas to infiltrate our way of life and seriously disrupt it. They have done this by unfairly trading with us, depleting our coffers and taking our jobs. Osama Bin Laden planned much of this and made these views public some years ago. He has successfully brought down the Western World's economy. To deal with this we need to reduce international trading to a minimum and become totally self sufficient.

    We need to immediately bring back our production from China, to put our people back to work making products here. The Chinese are not our friends, they have built their empire on our backs. They have decreased the value of your property and taken your jobs. We spend with China almost 300 billion a year, yet they only purchase 70 billion from us. Much of the junk we buy from them ends up in land-fills as most of it is defective and simply thrown out after its very short life. Chinese products are an environmental nightmare for us. They export to us poisoned food, dangerous electrical products and contaminated dry-wall and we have no legal recourse. We cannot send the defective products back, most of the time the postage would cost more than the product, so we simply throw the rubbishy material away and swallow hard. Even when you take it back to the vendor, they have almost no recourse, so simply absorb the cost of defective goods, so our American companies pay for the defects.

    Our postal service is in great financial difficulty and it's no wonder, thanks in part to the Chinese. They have figured out that it is very viable to sell their product to US consumers directly from China and deliver via mail. All they have to do is get the product on a plane (state subsidized) and fly it to the USA. The shipper pays the Chinese Postal system for the postage and the US gets ZIPPO for sorting and delivering the goods within the USA. The original idea was that things would even out with 'even' trading/business etc. but no one in China buys anything from the USA. Why? We don't have ANY MANUFACTURING HERE, so have NOTHING TO SELL THEM! They've screwed us AGAIN! We need strict controls on imports, free trade is NOT FREE!

    Eliminate importing foreign oil within 12 months. Now, I hear you say that will put the price of gas up. Too bad! Get used to it. In four years, approx, we could pay off our national debt.

    Church and State. The original concept has been that these two things should be kept well apart, yet too many religious entities are entwining their beliefs into law, and imposing these values on the rest of us. A special board needs to be set up to ensure NO RELIGION is entwined in our government. This nation has specifically written into law that one can practice any religion – or not. This ruling as been abused. Realise that some of these religions are cults and need to be curtailed in the Western World. We need to remove these 'places of worship' and strongly police the people who were visiting them, also inviting them to live in countries more tolerant of their beliefs by offering free one-way air tickets.

    The USA Visa system is BROKEN! It needs a complete rethink, and it needs it NOW! There are 4 million people currently in the USA who have overstayed their visa permitted time. No one has any idea where they are. If they can't obey this simple law, you have to wonder what other mischief they are up to. It should be the norm that any US citizen can ask to see 'papers' if he suspects someone of not being here legitimately. There are millions more Visa applicants who have been waiting at least five years for their paperwork to be processed. This is unacceptable.

    Foreign Aid. We spent almost $1 trillion a year on The World Food Bank and Foreign Aid. Most of this money ends up in the corrupt leaders of the governments we are giving this aid to. If we eliminated foreign aid today, we'd be solvent in eighteen months.

    You'd think we'd be able to get our heads together and sort these problems out, but I personally think that our democratic system is completely broken. In Australia, it is against the law NOT to vote. You can be fined and imprisoned for this crime against The State. We need to end the bickering that goes on in our halls of power, by both parties. We need to focus on the real enemies of this great nation. We need to do it now!

    Are you referring to the thousands of innocent, tolerant, logical people who lose their lives and loved ones every day, around the world, to Islamic terrorists? Do you think THEY give Islam a pass? There are simply too many examples of Muslims who embrace violence or do NOT speak out against it to pretend that these extremists are an inconsequential minority. Wake up and smell the falafel.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jguzzo1 Joe Guzzo

    I read through a large number of comments and opinions, and I appreciate that as Americans, we are able to communicate them freely. Then I listen to someone like weedonald with his comments and criticism of every point of view that doesn't agree with his. Sadly, I have heard a lot of folks just like him. I can agree that his opinions have a place in the discussion, but not with the way he demeans everyone else.
    Sadly, it is his attitude that is encouraging the political mistakes we are seeing. Maybe not him personally, but those just like him. Have you ever stood in defense of this country, sir? Have you lost anyone in any Muslim attack? Do you understand the atrocities that have been committed in the name of the Islamic religion in the past 20 years? Do some REAL research with an open mind, sir. If you can say, after a full and honest look at what is happening, that you still think we should be “nice” and roll over to these extremists, then feel free to do so. It is your right. Just don't expect to have the majority of Americans agree with you.
    As has been said before… God Bless America!!

In describing Americans, though, he forgot “apathetic.” Few seem to care about this outrageous insult to build a mosque at Ground Zero. What's next? A memorial to the Japanese pilots who bombed Pearl Harbor? I hope enough Americans see this video to get involved and scream from the tops of their lungs ENOUGH!

    Well the majority of Brits are of similar opinions as those voiced here, personally I would vote for mass repatriation of all Muslims, I do not trust this fanatical religion and whether or not their representatives condemn the act on 9/11 those of other faiths are infidels to them and if we can't be converted to the prophet then death is the punishment. Over here (Britain) we are overun with immigrants and due to the PC brigade we have lost all freedom of speech, branded rascist if we dare voice our concerns, I'm too old to leave, I've told my children to make their lives elsewhere as this country is a lost cause. Stand up to these extremists, petition your senators, hold rallies/marches and do that which you can to drive them from your lands, or America, like Britain and most of Europe will one day become a Muslim state.

    The moral of this story: Religion and the State are mutually corrupting. Keeping them separate was one of the wisest decisions our forefathers made.

    Politics seem to have invaded Islam; much said on behalf of that faith is political. However, on balance, one would have to observe that the same is true for Christianity, especially the evangelical brands. When you mix church and state, the precipitate of the reaction is death.

  • dbs333

    I disagree with him whole-heartedly. To deny a religion a place in the U.S.
    goes against what we are all about. To say that the terrorists who carried
    out 911 are religious is idiotic. They are fanatics who abstract a religion
    to satisfy their own agenda. True religion does not hurt another person. I
    doubt highly that the citizens that will enjoy the mosque are terrorists.
    And what better way to show our true colors to the rest of the world than to
    put a mosque at ground zero. I think it¹s brilliant. Pat needs to focus a
    little more on the world cup and a little less on being a bigot.

  • dbs333

    In addition, most of these comments are intellectually lazy. It’s typical for people to jump on a bandwagon without finding the real information. It’s easy – it’s the equivalent of fast food – but it’s not the truth. i guess the truth is just too much trouble for most. anyone who has served this country in the military who is speaking in support of this bigotry doesn’t understand why they were fighting at all. bone-headed.

    Building a mosque on top of ground zero is spitting directly into the faces of the American people and the survivors of the loved ones who died on 9/11. If it was MOSLEMS that killed those people in the first place, then WHY are they putting a MOSLEM MOSQUE on top of the wreckage site?!?! It's like putting their signature on the attack. They're saying “WE WERE HERE”. Anyone who can't see this must either be blind or in favor of the attacks that took place. Furthermore, if Americans did the same thing to iconic MOSLEM buildings and then built a CHRISTIAN church on the very site of the attack, I'm sure MOSLEMS would not just object, but would outright riot and start a Jihad. As a side note, it looks like a choreographed attempt at causing the American people to revolt so they can put us down like dogs and declare martial law. (First the attempted Jihad on 9/11, then a Moslem president who lied about his religion, now this insult at “Ground Zero”). What are they going to do next, an all-out invasion? As for immigrants, only LEGAL ONES are permitted RIGHTS. If you aren't legal, the only right you have is to go back home after you take your vacation here. Or you could apply LEGALLY and be welcome to live here.

  • Ladybug48363

    I get what you're saying, but to say that Christianity did awful things in the past and still is in Africa indirectly would be misrepresenting the facts. It has been the catholic popes and their minions doing the awful things you speak of. The pope and his catholic followers are as far from being Christian as Islam is. Note the god they carry at the top of their staff–he's dead. But Christ is risen. Whoever that is hanging on that cross their pope carries, I don't know, but it isn't Christ, because Christ isn't hanging on the cross anymore, He's risen. So they aren't worshiping Christ. They keep him perpetually in a state of death and claim to serve and worship him, a dead god who never rose again. In reality who they worship is a dead god in the form of a statue of a woman they call “Mary”. No one knows what Mary or Jesus for that matter looked like, so why do they insist on worshiping these images that were made by people who never even met them? Think about it. (I know you're an atheist by your own admission, but I thought it was important to clarify the facts for others should they not understand the nature of catholicism nor understand that they perpetrated the Inquisitions, the bloodiest “holy” wars in history. They killed millions of Christians for the simplest fact of not wanting to be catholic, not wanting a mere man to govern their faith, for wanting to stand in Christ alone, through faith alone, by grace alone. The Inquisitions were a papal temper tantrum of mamoth proportions perpetrated world-wide resulting in the horrific deaths of millions of those who loved Christ and despised the Romish papal religion of idolatry, debauchery and despotism. It is not Christianity you speak of it is catholicism.

  • Ladybug48363

    They are not fanatics. The Quran (the Moslem “bible”) tells Moslems to make war against “the people of the Book” referring to those who believe in the Holy Bible and the Torah (the Old Testament alone) until they confess that “Allah” is the only god and then serve him.

    Many Muslims are living in a feudal mindset at odds with the modern world with which they must deal much as the Roman Catholic church did at the time of Galaleo. He was only barely spared from burning at the stake for the heresy of believing that the world was not the center of the universe. His scientiffic manuscripts and rationalization in a higher spiritual belief were only accepted officially by the Roman Catholic church in the 20th century.

    Islam is very much in need of its own Reformation to join the modern world with which it must deal and contribute. It is very easy to be a victim of life or the world in which we live. If Islam today is to have any worldwide credibility and relevance it must be able and willing to sanction its own extreme and often murderous fringes with which most muslims and other civialized people in the world are appalled. Even the Roman Catholic Church has been quite successful at this recently. This is not to be confused with State sanctioned violence and agression commonly comitted around the world in the name of religion in the search of power.
    The power of the spirit is profound and when promoted in the persuit of common human values as opposed to fuedal dominance can enlighten and enrich everyone.

  • FactsNTruth

    RIse and Stand for it NY! MY FULL SUPPORT!!!

    Arabs/muslims hate us, they HATE our land, our way of life they hate everything about us!!!
    They always did, they always will be… as their coran says if you not a muslim you're worse then an animal or also infidel. I personally don't feel happy to leave next door to someone who thinks of me that way… Why did we ever let'em in here ever on a first place – they have plenty of muslim coutries where they are welcome.
    Should we be letting onto US land only people WHO loves us and complient with our way of life? So, at least we'll NOT create ENEMY WITHIN???

    Now, educational / castrated version of CORAN is absolete today. Muslims are in a process of switching to original version, which is EXTREMELY VIOLENT!!! In fact, from those who lived in islamic countries – this is THE MOST VIOLENT religion before they have a chance to complete the sentence and got cut off the air…
    While It looks from outside that muslims don't kill, don't lie, don't smoke, don't drink and lots of other GOOD things, but here is the tricky part – they allowed to drink, smoke, curse, lie to get to their cause. And in fact killing infidel is a great honor which helps to collect credits toward to 72 virgins… So, they blend in and take over country, and historically this is what they do… meaning for USA that they don't really accept our US way of life they just tolerate it temporarily, until time comes for takeover… like starting from pushing SHARIAT law (by the way – already happend in England) , next they demand for making feet washing stations everywhere at taxpayers expense etc

    So, time is against us and will kill us as a nation… and not much we can do about it…
    England, France already passed point of no return, south of Norway already full of crime, hate and muslim demonstrants on steets – this coutry also screwed… Whole Europe is pretty much damned…
    Only Australian PM out of all leaders raised his voice against like: “Don't want to live by this country rules and keep our way of life – leave Australia as you're NOT welcome here”

    But as that snake Arafat said, “Uterus of Arab's women is our weapon”… and that's a fact, tough to argue against…

    But what is next generation will inherit?!?! What kind of country – USA under SHARIAT LAW? That's Not what our fathers founders build and planned for US, that's for sure.

    I like the sticker on my (half native) friend's car, it says: “Our children are Not inheriting planet from us, – that's us borrowing this planet from our children”. Love it – philosophicaly deep, sounds like a wisdom…
    Appiying above to our coutry we're NOT doing a very GOOD JOB for our next generation.

    this is sad… Not much more to add…

    I feel sorry for those level-headed and reasonable citizens of your once-great country who get drown out in the mob-mental, shyte-spewing, egocentric fear-mongers that is the American media.
    I respect those men and women that serve their country overseas. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for those higher-ups, giving orders and making decisions that cost hundreds of lives from behind their Washington desks, like moving chess pieces around a board, seeing those that serve them as nothing more than statistics.

What arrogance of this damnable religion (religion of peace- what peace?) that they will build a monument to glorify the terrorists that took down the TOWERS in NY. This damnable so called religion is a threat against the whole world. Muslims despise America and what it stands for and every freedom and liberty we treasure.

I search everyday in our newspapers for some sort of Muslim religious protest, anything that would show that these american Muslims are outraged as well to have their peacful, loving religion hijacked by these extreamists. Little by little their silence is defting and I retreat into a notion that they have NO intention of explaination or even a comment. Slowly the hate is left to fester and bubble and breed. Shame on you, our fellow American muslims for not standing UP and at least TRYING to put an end to all this miscommunication.

    Out of respect for those who lost their lives due to 9/11 they should not build the Mosque anywhere near ground zero. It would be just as insulting to build a Nazi center across from a Jewish Temple. There is such a thing as “sensitivity”. Sure it is legal to build it, but it is insensitive to do so.

  • Suzy_cute67

    I cannot believe how much HATE and BIGOTRY this man has! He obviously has never read about WHO WAS REALLY BEHIND 9/11 but is only believing what the media has told him on TV. MOST AMERICANS DO NOT HATE like this man does. If anyone from another country reads this, PLEASE BELIEVE ME that not all of us Americans are this stupid. We love other races, religions and cultures……THIS MAN DOES NOT SPEAK FOR THE MAJORITY OF AMERICAN PEOPLE. We know that 9/11 was a false-flag inside job by corrupt people and the Zionists.

    Well done Pat Condell !!!

    In your blasphemic tirade on Islam, you connected 9/11 with Islamic intolerance. Islam is a known & admitted religion preaching peace as its apostle. You only need to read & understand the Quran to know that.

    Those 19 hijackers of 9/11 identified & investigated by the US had nothing to do with Islam. Perhaps they were sympathetic to the Palestinian cause, who themselves are not the most ardent Muslims. As Pakistan’s president Musharraf very correctly pointed out, that according to the US investigations, it was revealed that those hijackers were found to be drinking & celebrating in a bar in Florida a night before the hijacking. Now this is highly inconsistent with Islamic principles as practiced today, particularly a team planning for an Islamic “jihad”. If the Taliban even smelt a whiff of alcoholic odour on a person, they would probably behead & string him upside down before we could even blink.

    You have stirred up the lines for the next “battle of civilisations”. This takes us back several decades, nay centuries back to the “war of crusades”.

    I recall my visit to the Soviet Union about half a century ago, when the ”Cold War” was in its full fury. They pointed out 2 arguments undermining their philosophy:

    1) Historically, religion was the cause of all major wars (Defending their policy of atheism), and

    2) If had it not been for capitalisation, we would not have had those devastating 2 world wars last century (defending communism). Mind you, they lost 30 million in the 2nd World War.

    Perhaps the Russians were much more modern & forthcoming than your narrow minded views to take us back to the 11th-13th century crusade wars.

    2 blocks from ground zero =/= ground zero.

    a rec center =/= a mosque.

    This guy needs classes in basic logic.

  • Madhukarss

    I totally agree with you Sir but what do you have to say about your white boys and girls humping and marrying Muslims here in America…is’nt that not contributing in itself in the fall of America in its own discreet and unnoticed way,the effects will be visible 50 years down the road…Muslims will conquer the planet by hook or by crook…think about it !!

    EVERY NEW YORKER SHOULD HEAR THIS SPEECH, ESPECIALLY MICHAEL BLOOMBERG. HE’S RIGHT ABOUT IT ALL, AND IT’S ABOUT TIME SOMEONE SAID IT CLEAR ENOUGH AND PRECISE ENOUGH TO MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL. NO MOSQUE SHOULD BE BUILT DOWN THERE FOR ANY GROUP TO GLOAT OVER WHAT WAS DONE. I AGREE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT.

  • Flysnake12

    this dude is a hater i swear its not thirteen stories and its 4 blocks away and its in an abandoned building. and Muslims were killed too. How about the churches close enough to touch the barbed wire. If you dont want a Mosque there remove your church where you destroying many cities of Bangladesh, Its insulting.
