Newt Takes Brave Stand Against Muslim Dictatorial Demands

Posted on July 21, 2010

Few will speak out as forcefully as Newt Gingrich has done [HT]. At Newt Gingrich .Org, he has made a line in the Saudi sand:  No mosque at ground zero until churches and synagogues are allowed in Saudi Arabia.  Why take on the Saudis? Their kingdom is home to Islam’s holiest site: Mecca. It is thought also that some of the financing for the mosque/Islamic cultural center will have come from the Saudis.  There is no information forthcoming about who is financing it.

For decades, Europe has appeared helpless in the face of the growing Muslim populations in their countries.  Fertility rates are not on their side.  In time, the Muslims will be the dominant population on the continent.  Already in Britain, Sharia law is allowed in some parts of the country and is supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Anglican church.

Here in this country, Michigan has the largest population of Muslims.  Signs in the Detroit Airport are in English and Arabic.  In reaction to the clashes of cultures that have happened in that region and in others, several states have attempted to ban Sharia law and a bill was introduced into Congress to do the same thing at the Federal level.

Under “The Jihad Prevention Act” introduced by U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado, 6th) in 2008. Sharia law, and its advocates, would be banished from the United States.  It was referred to the Judiciary Committee where it has languished for two years.  Tancredo’s bill would bar foreign nationals who advocate Sharia law from entering the United States and make advocacy of Sharia law a deportable offense. []

To-date, there have been few issues with Muslims and Sharia law that have focused the efforts of many on a nation-wide basis. The proposed mosque near ground zero in Manhattan has been a lightening rod of controversy that has awakened more people to what has been to date a silent conflict.  And now Newt Gingrich has become a leader in getting Americans to wake up and defend their Constitution – their way of life – their freedoms.  Here is his statement in its entirety:

Newt Gingrich Statement on the Proposed “Cordoba House” Mosque at Ground Zero

July 21, 2010 6pm There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia. The time for double standards that allow Islamists to behave aggressively toward us while they demand our weakness and submission is over.

The proposed “Cordoba House” overlooking the World Trade Center site – where a group of jihadists killed over 3000 Americans and destroyed one of our most famous landmarks – is a test of the timidity, passivity and historic ignorance of American elites.  For example, most of them don’t understand that “Cordoba House” is a deliberately insulting term.  It refers to Cordoba, Spain – the capital of Muslim conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a church there into the world’s third-largest mosque complex.

Today, some of the Mosque’s backers insist this term is being used to “symbolize interfaith cooperation” when, in fact, every Islamist in the world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of Islamic conquest.  It is a sign of their contempt for Americans and their confidence in our historic ignorance that they would deliberately insult us this way.

Those Islamists and their apologists who argue for “religious toleration” are arrogantly dishonest. They ignore the fact that more than 100 mosques already exist in New York City. Meanwhile, there are no churches or synagogues in all of Saudi Arabia. In fact no Christian or Jew can even enter Mecca.

And they lecture us about tolerance.

If the people behind the Cordoba House were serious about religious toleration, they would be imploring the Saudis, as fellow Muslims, to immediately open up Mecca to all and immediately announce their intention to allow non-Muslim houses of worship in the Kingdom.   They should be asked by the news media if they would be willing to lead such a campaign.

We have not been able to rebuild the World Trade Center in nine years.  Now we are being told a 13 story, $100 million megamosque will be built within a year overlooking the site of the most devastating surprise attack in American history.

Finally where is the money coming from?  The people behind the Cordoba House refuse to reveal all their funding sources.

America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive designed to undermine and destroy our civilization. Sadly, too many of our elites are the willing apologists for those who would destroy them if they could.

No mosque.

No self deception.

No surrender.

The time to take a stand is now – at this site on this issue.

You are a true leader, Newt.  You have reminded us of the reality:  Sharia law would kill our Constitution and the rights it protects.  We need to face this and to stand up for our laws, our religions and our way of life.  Muslims have used the freedoms guaranteed to them under our laws to work against us. This cannot continue.  As Newt has pointed out, we cannot be the only ones being tolerant.
