“Describing the controversy as ‘a fabricated issue,’ Mr. El-Gamal, who received death threats at the time, insisted that the scaled-down museum would still achieve his original objective. ‘We are still building an Islamic museum and sanctuary,’ he said.” A “sanctuary”? In this context, that’s a mosque. …
The Islamic museum at Ground Zero is just as much of an insult to those who were killed there as the 16-story mega-mosque that El-Gamal originally planned would have been.
If it were an honest Islamic museum, showing the true history of jihad conquest and exposing the motivating ideology of the 9/11 jihad mass murderers, it would be welcome and even necessary. But it is sure to be a whitewash. When is the museum dedicated to the achievements of Nazi Germany going up at Auschwitz?
The US is resembling Egypt in the 600’s, prior to being conquered by Islam — completely unable to come to terms with what it is dealing with. It is decadent and in accelerating decline — meanwhile China and Russia rebuild the Silk Road and the future of civilization. Sad.
