Bloomberg: Investigating 9/11 Mosque Is Un-American

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate a mosque that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.

(h/t @DanRiehl)

Let me make a list for Mayor Bloomberg, to refresh his memory, of things that are Un-American:

  • Honor killings
  • Honor “rape”, or just rape in general
  • Beatings for women going out in public unescorted by a male relative
  • Not allowing women to go to school, or learn to read
  • Killing Christians who won’t covert
  • Killing Jews because they’re, well, Jewish
  • Refusing to drive a cab for passengers who have an unopened bottle of wine, or a dog
  • Flying planes full of people into buildings full of people
  • Suicide bombings
  • Strapping explosives to women, children, and the mentally retarded – turning them into bombs
  • Shari’ah law superceding American law
  • Beheadings, including of journalists like Daniel Pearl.
  • Burning the bodies of Americans, dragging them through the streets, and then hanging them from a bridge
  • Promising to drive all the Jews into the sea
  • Declaring that the Muslim flag will fly over the Whitehouse
  • Killing and/or threatening to kill people over newspaper cartoons
  • Cheering in the streets when the towers fell
  • Screaming ‘Allah Akbar’ and shooting up a room full of unarmed people on an American military base

There are more, but here is my last one: sticking a fork in the eye of the American people by building a huge mosque within spitting distance of and overlooking the pit where buildings once stood and 2,500 people, most American, were murdered by Muslim fanatics on 9/11.

These things alone are reprehensible on their face.  They are not a reason to investigate a simple, humble religious building being constructed in Manhattan.  That the folks behind the mosque might be funding terrorism is a reason to investigate.  That the folks running the mosque may use it to incite more terrorism is a reason to investigate.  I’m sorry that the symbolism of the mosque’s size and location are lost on you, Mr. Mayor.  I’m pretty sure it isn’t lost on the Muslim world.
