Happy 235th Birthday to the United States Marines




Halls Of Montezuma (full version)




Marines' Hymn Lyrics


From the halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom,
And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marines.

Our flag's unfurl'd to every breeze
From the dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And have never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

Semper Fi!

Historic House Win for the GOP



Historic House Win for the GOP

The midterm elections of 2010 resulted in a historic win for the GOP in which they gained a majority in the House of Representatives.

The midterm elections of 2010 resulted in a historic win for the GOP in which they gained a majority in the House of Representatives.

The Republicans needed 39 seats to win back the House and pending any recount votes it appears they won 64 seats or more, with the count not complete 2-days after the election.

The GOP will reclaim their majority status when the new 112th United States Congress convenes in January 2011 following the 2010 midterm elections.

Note: not all historic gains resulted in a majority representation for that Party.

Most presidents lose seats during the midterms, but the Democrats lost the most seats of any midterm since 1938 when the Republicans gained 81 seats in the House of Representatives; 72 seats from the Democrats and other seats from Progressive and Farmer-Labor Parties.

The U.S. House election of 1946, in the middle of Harry Truman's first term, resulted in a Republican majority, with the Republicans picking up 55 seats.

The U.S. House election of 1994, in the middle of Bill Clinton’s first term, resulted in a majority of seats for the Republicans for the first time since 1954, with the GOP winning 54 seats.

Prior to the ’94 election, the Democratic Party had run the House for all but six of the preceding 62 years. In 1994 the GOP united behind Newt Gingrich's Contract with America and took back the House.

In the middle of George Bush’s first term, during the House election of 2002, the GOP gained 8 seats maintaining their majority. Such gains only occurred three other times during midterm elections; in 1902, 1934, and in 1998, which was Bill Clinton’s second term and the gain did not result in a majority for the Democrats.

Following the 2006 elections, Democrats took control of the House as well as the Senate. In the 2008 elections, which coincided with Barack Obama's victory, Democrats increased their majorities in both chambers.

Still deciding over Grimm and McMahon?

Grimm vs McMahon. The Choice is clear!

As we rapidly approach the midterm elections, what should be clear by now is the stark differences between Republican Michael Grimm and the Democrat Michael McMahon, both vying for the seat covering NY’s 13th district.

On all fronts, including character, Grimm has consistently risen above the classless tactics and failed policy decisions of the incumbent, Michael McMahon.

Dirty Tricks

Mike McMahon is all tricks and no treat

Click here for a rundown on the lowdown

On the Issues

  • WhenMcMahon was a New York City council member he voted to raise property taxes 18.5%, the largest in the city’s history
  • He supported a congestion pricing scheme that would have levied an additional toll on all vehicles traveling to Manhattan below 96th St.
  • McMahon voted with Nancy Pelosi to stop a middle class tax cut.

Any wonder why McMahon is dubbed Tax Hike Mike ?

McMahon voted against Obamacare but gave a wink and nod to Pelosi’s shenanigans over the “Deem and Pass” maneuver intended to ram the bill down the throats of the American people.

Grimm is calling to repeal Obamacare while McMahon is not.

Still undecided if you should vote for Grimm or McMahon?

The choice is clear if you are concerned about the economy, healthcare, jobs and installing a trustworthy representative in Congress.

Cuomo’s social engineering as HUD chief contributed to subprime crisis

Cuomo’s social engineering as HUD chief contributed to subprime crisis

Have those New Yorkers, residents of one of the highest taxed states in the union, voting for Andrew Cuomo to be their next governor allowed their ideology to trump sound reasoning?

Andrew Cuomo took the reins and not only furthered Cisneros and Clinton’s policies but greatly expanded them.

Henry Cisneros moved the GSEs toward a requirement that 42 percent of their mortgages serve low and moderate income families. Andrew Cuomo raised that number to 50 percent and dramatically hiked GSE mandates to buy mortgages for the "very-low-income."

These bad loans were purchased and sold throughout the secondary market and the pyramid grew and the bottom collapsed resulting in the subprime crisis we are still reeling from today.

Death Penalty Executions Delayed Due to Drug Shortage - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com


Converted Gas Chamber, San Quentin

Death Penalty Executions Delayed Due to Drug Shortage - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com

Hospira an Illinois based company suspended the production of Pentothal. Pentothal consists of sodium thiopental, which is one of the three drugs combined to create the lethal injection commonly used in death penalty executions.

Sodium thiopental is a barbiturate primarily used to anesthetize surgical patients, induce medical comas and sometimes to euthanize animals.

Hospira is the sole producer of the drug and reports that the shortage could last until next March. The company claims that the shortage is due to unspecified problems with its raw-material suppliers.

As a result of the shortage, several of the 17 prisoners condemned to be put to death by the end of January are likely to receive a temporary reprieve.

33 of the 35 states that still put prisoners to death use the three-drug approach. The remaining two, Ohio and Washington, have opted for using a single heavy dose of sodium thiopental.

Oklahoma and Kentucky have already postponed scheduled executions. Arizona does not have the drug and anticipates that a scheduled October execution will be delayed.

On September 29, after a five-year ban on the death penalty, California was scheduled to execute Albert Greenwood, convicted of raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl in 1980; that execution will likely not be carried out.

In Oklahoma, two convicted killers are scheduled for lethal injections and only one dose of the drug needed to execute them is available.

Matters became complicated for Oklahoma when the drug shortage pushed back the execution of 38-year-old Jeffrey Matthews who was scheduled to die Aug. 17 for the murder of one of his relatives during a burglary.

Officials wanted to use a substitute drug; Matthews' attorneys objected and a judge stayed his execution until October 16. Prison officials say they have since secured one dose of sodium thiopental for his execution, and they planned to use it on Matthews.

However, attorneys for Donald Wackerly, the second inmate scheduled for execution before Matthews, claim the substitute that his client will receive is inappropriate and possibly inhumane.

A judge then ruled the single dose of sodium thiopental should be used on Wackerly, who was convicted of murdering a fisherman during a robbery in 1996, instead of Matthews.

Matthews' attorneys then successfully obtained another hearing to further delay his execution, citing potential problems with the sedative switch.

What a mess, to say the least. Death Penalty Information Center Director Richard Dieter likened the mess in Oklahoma to “Russian Roulette.”

Skepticism regarding the merits of the shortage exists because of Hospira’s stance against their products being utilized in executions. Hospira sent out letters last March containing the following statement:

“Hospira provides these products because they improve or save lives and markets them solely for use as indicated on the product labeling. As such, we do not support the use of any of our products in capital punishment procedures.”

The one state not experiencing shortage issues is Texas,
the nation's busiest death penalty state. Texas has enough of the drug on hand to carry out the three executions scheduled before the end of the year, which would bring its total number of executions for 2010 to 15.

States looking to avoid protracted delays in pending executions will undoubtedly face legal challenges if they seek to use an alternative drug to replace Pentothal, which is Hospira’s brand name for sodium thiopental.

Pentothal, part of the three-drug cocktail that creates the lethal injection, is designed to sedate inmates before they are injected with the drugs that paralyze them and stop their hearts.

Rick Lazio drops out of governor’s race

Rick Lazio drops out of governor’s race

Rick Lazio after losing the Republican primary to Carl Paladino remained on the Conservative line. During a Monday afternoon presser, Lazio announced he is dropping out of the New York governor’s race.

"My continued presence on the Conservative line will just lead to the election of Andrew Cuomo," said Lazio. "I don't want to be responsible for that. That is unacceptable."

A recent Quinnipiac poll that shows Carl Paladino within six-points of the liberal candidate Andrew Cuomo did not query the likely voters about Lazio. Polls including the Lazio factor clearly show his presence in the race siphons votes away from the GOP candidate and significantly increases Cuomo’s lead.

Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long anticipates his Party will officially announce their support for Carl Paladino.

“Right now (Paladino) is clearly the Republican Party candidate,” Long said. “I think we’re best served when we are united, not divided.”

Will Rick Lazio receive a judgeship nomination?

New York law allows three ways for a candidate to be removed from the ballot.

1. Death

2. Moving out of state

3. Nomination for a judgeship

Celeste Katz of the Daily News reports that Bronx Republican Chairman Jay Sorvino confirms that Rick Lazio will be nominated for the Bronx County Supreme Court at the party's nominating convention Monday night.

Note: A nomination for judgeship allows Rick Lazio to be removed from the ballot and does not mean the nomination will lead to a seat on the bench.

Sarah Palin weighed in via Twitter and had this to say regarding Lazio dropping out of the NY gubernatorial race, “Rick Lazio: u r Commonsense Conservatives (& other freedom-loving NY'rs) hero today. Thanks 4 selfless act 2 allow your great state 2 thrive.”

Carl Paladino remains strong candidate against Cuomo in NY governor’s race - New York Political Buzz | Examiner.com

Carl Paladino remains strong candidate against Cuomo in NY governor’s race - New York Political Buzz | Examiner.com

http://cdn2-b.examiner.com//sites/default/files/styles/large/hash//98/60/9860e0d7f76e3f3c4b2143cb3f0e982b.jpg

In a recent Quinnipiac poll conducted September 16 – 20, GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, aided by a 4 -1 margin among Tea Partiers, trails New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic candidate for Governor, 49 - 43 percent among likely voters.

Seven percent of those polled were undecided. Cuomo’s six-point lead is certainly not a comfortable one and Carl Paladino remains a formidable candidate.

Note: Only 18 percent of New York State likely voters consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement, but they back Paladino 77 - 18 percent. Additionally, Paladino is favored 49 – 43 percent among independent voters.

Days after the Quinnipiac poll, Marist and Siena College polls show Andrew Cuomo with a significant lead when Rick Lazio, who remains on the Conservative line, is factored in.

Is the Ground Zero Mosque Debate a Factor?

In an earlier Quinnipiac poll it was revealed that most NY voters are opposed to the Ground zero mosque. In an updated poll by Quinnipiac, conducted during the same time period of the Paladino/Cuomo poll, it was revealed that the New York opposition to the mosque near Ground Zero has grown.

Before the primaries, candidate Rick Lazio challenged Andrew Cuomo to investigate the Cordoba Initiative’s dubious connections and shady financing regarding the purchase of the site to house Imam Rauf’s mega mosque and Islamic center.

It is in Cuomo’s purview as attorney general to have registered charities open their books, especially when the charity shows less than 22 thousand-dollars in those books and gets involved with purchasing a building for 4.85 million-dollars in cash.

Andrew Cuomo not only refused to acknowledge a reason to investigate, but embarrassingly hid behind the first amendment perverting the Constitution by suggesting it somehow protects the shenanigans of Imam Rauf and his Initiative.

The Constitution protects freedom of religion not financial impropriety.

As Rick Lazio was calling for an investigation, Paladino took it a step further and stated as governor he will use the “power of eminent domain to stop the mosque and use the site as a war memorial instead of as a monument to those that attacked our country.”

Rick Lazio subsequently lost to Paladino in the Republican primary, but remains in the race on the Conservative line.

The Quinnipiac poll doesn’t address the Lazio factor. Lazio remaining in the race will split the vote, pulling votes away from Paladino as the Marist and Siena polls indicate. Republican leaders are in talks with Lazio to see if he will quit the race and in a show of support and unity endorse Carl Paladino, the Republican primary winner.

Congressman Meeks advocated for bin Laden ally - New York Political Buzz | Examiner.com



Congressman Meeks advocated for bin Laden ally - New York Political Buzz | Examiner.com

In 2006, during the Bush administration, Anwar Hajjaj asked U.S. Representative Gregory Meeks to appeal to Homeland Security (HLS) on his behalf regarding the scrutiny he was enduring at New York airports when he traveled to and from Saudi Arabia for the “pilgrimage to Mecca.”

Gregory Meeks, a Queens Democrat serving in Congress as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives covering NY’s 6th District ignored Hajjaj’s connections to al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden and complied with his request.

The NY Post via a FOIA request learned that in 2006 Meeks took then Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff to task over HLS officials questioning Hajjaj at JFK Airport and demanded to know why Hajjaj received "unwarranted scrutiny."

Who is Anwar Hajjaj?

Meeks described Hajjaj as “a pioneer in distance-based learning of Islam through the American Open University in Virginia.”

In addition to Meek’s letters, the Post uncovered plenty more.

Anwar Hajjaj and Abdullah A. bin Laden, Osama bin Laden's nephew, founded the Taibah International Aid Association, a charity that has been accused of funding al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

Hajjaj is also director of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth International (WAMY) a Virginia based group that was also founded by Abdullah bin Laden.

A WAMY publication lists people who have attacked Israelis as "heroes of Palestine" and referred to Jews as "humanity's enemies," according to a 2003 affidavit by a customs special agent.

Families of 9/11 victims have ongoing lawsuits against both organizations, citing the material support to Osama and al-Qaeda as grounds for the action. The lawsuit revealed that in 1996 the FBI listed WAMY as a suspected terror group.

U.S. District Court Judge George Daniels stated the allegations against the group are "sufficient to demonstrate that they are knowingly and intentionally providing material support to al-Qaeda."

Why would a U.S. Representative advocate on behalf of a bin Laden ally?

Hajjaj knew Meeks through the congressman’s chief of staff, Jameel Aalim-Johnson.

According to Congressman Meeks the letters he sent to HLS and other federal agencies was to “inquire about the treatment of two Muslim American citizens in particular that felt they were treated unfairly at U.S. ports of entry."

Before you ask are you freakin’ kidding me!? Yes, the Queens Democrat was indeed serious.

A quick recap:

  • U.S. Rep. Greg Meeks scolded HLS for questioning Hajjaj.

  • Hajjaj founded and directed two groups with the nephew of Osama bin Laden

  • The two groups, one of which is on a FBI suspected terror list, has a credible lawsuit against them by the families of the 9/11 victims for providing material support to al-Qaeda and bin Laden.

While the troops are actively engaged in armed combat with al-Qaeda and searching for Osama, U.S. Representative Gregory Meeks is advocating on behalf of a character such as Hajjaj; clearly Meeks is not representing American interests.

Hanoi Jane is mild compared to today’s useful idiots.

Note: Anwar Hajjaj was not arrested at the airports, only questioned about his dubious connections. In other words, U.S. Customs at NY airports were doing their jobs back in 2006.

Fast forward to today.

Anwar Hajj had this to say, "It was an awful experience under the Bush administration, now under Obama, I have no complaints."

Welcome to an Obamanation.

Obama Embraces Radical Imam and Denounces Radical Pastor


It has been widely reported that a Florida pastor planned on a Quran burning event to coincide with the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by Muslim jihadists. It was breaking news on Thursday when Pastor Terry Jones canceled his “International Burn a Koran Day.

During the height of controversy over the Koran burning, Obama spoke out against it making it clear that he was speaking as “Commander in chief of the armed forces of the United States.” From this newly acknowledged position, the POTUS warned of the dangers to our troops and claimed the Florida pastor’s actions were counter to American values; clearly Obama made this a national issue.

Additionally, during the height of controversy over Imam Rauf’s desire via his Cordoba Initiative to erect a mosque 600-feet from Ground Zero, populate his already established Sharia Index Project, put into motion the subject of his book (published by terror supporting organizations) calling for dawa from the rubble of the WTC site and a Sharia compliant America, President Obama refused to weigh in brushing it off as a “local issue.”

Not only didn’t the president denounce the imam’s nefarious designs, he later embraced them during Ramadan celebrations at the White House.

Now, this isn’t a matter of pointing to bad behavior (radical imam) to justify other bad behavior (radical pastor). Both actions should be denounced, therein lays the rub and the point.

Governor Paterson offers state land for Ground Zero mosque

Supporters of mosque strongly reject proposal

New York Governor David Paterson offered state land as an alternative site for the Cordoba Initiative mosque to be built near Ground Zero.

The governor’s office acknowledged that they couldn't simply "provide" public land for a religious group and therefore must “competitively sell state land by bidding.”

Paterson stated, "If the sponsors were looking for property anywhere at a distance that would be such that it would accommodate a better feeling among the people who are frustrated, I would look into trying to provide them with the state property they would need."

The Democratic governor admitted that he does not have issue with the Cordoba Initiative and supports their mosque proposal. However, the NY governor stated he is ‘sensitive’ to the feelings of those adamantly opposed.

Mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal rejected the governor’s proposal for an alternative site and claimed a need to “serve Lower Manhattan.”

Another prominent mosque supporter also rejected the governor's proposal and stated, “Paterson's remarks validate the idea that all Muslims are responsible for what terrorists did on September 11, 2001.”

Nation of Islam Prevents Cop from Entering Harlem Mosque 7

Abdul Kareem Muhammad invited NYPD Detective Martin Brown to a community meeting inside the Nation of Islam's Mosque No. 7. The meeting was held in order to bridge a divide over allegations of police brutality.

Det. Brown was assigned to the liaison unit established by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. On July 30, 2010, the detective arrived at the mosque and was met by organizers who barred him from entering the location unless he relinquished his gun and shield.

The detective refused the order, dutifully waited outside and was finally greeted by Abdul Hafeez Muhammad, the imam of the mosque. The imam apologized to Det. Brown, but backed up the Nation of Islam militants and refused to let the cop into the meeting without surrendering his gun and shield.

An NYPD spokesperson stated, "Det. Brown was invited to the mosque but refused to comply with the request that he enter without his weapon or shield."

The NY Post reported a police source said it was a slap particularly since the detective had showed up in an act of conciliation and outreach.

The bigger problems and questions went unnoticed and unasked. History is usually interesting, but always relevant.

As found on examiner.com

Mosque at Ground Zero: Update


Image: You Tube

Check out the Center for Security Policy’s video, No Mosque at Ground Zero:

As the ad makes clear, Shariah's followers have long built mosques on the most sacred sites of those they have conquered, brief examples:

  • Jerusalem's Temple Mount, at Constantinople
  • Istanbul's St. Sophia Basilica
  • Cordoba, Spain, the capital of the occupying Moors' Muslim kingdom

The name of the project to erect a mega mosque in the shadows of ground Zero is the Cordoba Initiative. What’s in a name? Sometimes tyranny.

Click here for a deeper look into the Cordoba Initiative and its president, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.

If one listens carefully, the nefarious designs of the nation’s enemies and/or their supporters will be heard; sometimes a simple title is the first clue to tyrannical endeavors. Sadly, far too often political correctness and political cowardice causes otherwise powerful leaders to bury their heads in the sand.

If the West continues to bury its head in the sand, regarding Islam, we may soon find the same removed from its host"- American Angle

Never forget what political correctness allowed in Fort Hood, Texas.

Update on getting the mega mosque site landmarked:

It is estimates that the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will have a decision on the landmark status of the site before the end of summer. Click here for LPC contact information.

On July 20, The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) submitted additional written testimony to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) urging city officials to landmark the site where the landing gear of one of the hijacked planes from 9-11 crashed through the roof of the building.

The ACLJ is an organization dedicated to the defense of constitutional liberties secured by law.

“The ACLJ represents Tim Brown, a decorated firefighter and first responder, who survived the Twin Towers’ collapse and lost nearly 100 friends. We also represent thousands of you who have signed on to our Committee to Stop the Ground Zero Mosque - Americans who oppose building an Islamic mosque on this site which should be used to honor and preserve the memory of 9-11 and its victims.”

Please visit the ACLJ site for more information and ways to help stop the insult the mosque at Ground Zero represents.

Flies and Vermin Swarm when Libs Speak

Various images of Charles Rangel were taken as the ethics violation charges against him were announced. Rangel the popular Democrat from Harlem, NY worked extensively on Obamacare in his capacity as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Rangel was forced to step down as chairman when news of corruption began to circulate.

Here is a screen shot of Charles Rangel talking with NYC Council Speaker, Christine Quinn:




Note the fly nestling in Quinn’s hair. Feed well.

Many are familiar by now of the viral image of the huge fly circling the president and then finally landing on Obama’s top lip.

Point out the significance of the Property in light of the 9/11 attacks, given the properties' proximity to Ground Zero and the fact that pieces of one of the planes landed in the building. It was part of the attack. The landing gear of one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center Towers flew into the Burlington Coat Factory building and fell through the roof to the basement. The fact that the committee ignores that fact is outrageous, and disrespects the victims of 911. [Emphasis my own]

The building's ironwork was crafted by the famous architect Daniel D. Badger, known also for his famous foundry and Architectural Ironworks. Continue reading Pam Geller’s content for more background, photos and relevance of the historical significance of Mr. Badger’s work in Manhattan.

Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACP's Washington bureau said the adopted resolution "Calls on the Tea Party and all people of good will to repudiate the racist element and activities within the Tea party."

NYC Mayor Bloomberg against investigation into Cordoba mosque near Ground Zero

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” - attributed to Edmund Burke

Mayor Michael Bloomberg was asked about his position on Rick Lazio’s call for an investigation into the Cordoba Initiative constructing a mega mosque near Ground Zero. The mayor claims any investigation into the mosque would be “out of character for what this nation stands for and the way we conduct ourselves.”

NY 1 reports, “Bloomberg blasted Lazio’s comment by saying an investigation would be un-American.”

Bloomberg added, "I don't think we're going to go and start investigating funding sources for religious organizations or vetting people who preach or pray in religious organizations.”

Like the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo, the mayor is hiding behind the noble tenet of religious freedom to evade the political hot potato of investigating potentially dangerous operatives.

The Cordoba Institute has paid in cash nearly five-million dollars for the property in question; the funding of this project is not entirely revealed.

What we do know is that the president of the Cordoba Initiative desires Sharia law in the U.S., which will usurp the Constitution and inhibit religious freedom, free speech and women’s rights; those aforementioned violations of the Constitution are mild compared to the full implications of a Sharia compliant U.S.

Tony West Defender of American Taliban Leads DOJ Case Against Arizona

Who is Tony West?

Tony West is an assistant attorney general in the Civil Division of the DOJ. He was nominated by President Obama in January 2009 and confirmed in April. Prior to earning a spot in Holder’s Justice Department and leading the charge against the people of Arizona, Mr. West defended “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh.

Who is the American Taliban?

John Walker Lindh was born in 1981, as an adolescent he became devoted to hip-hop music and pretended to be an African-American rapper during online sessions. After viewing the movie Malcolm X by Spike Lee, John Walker Lindh became interested in Islam. In 1997, the white, Catholic, American born citizen converted to Islam; and the rest, as they say, is history.

Before 9/11, Lindh travelled the Islamic circuit abroad and settled in Afghanistan where he assumed the name Sulayman al-Faris and took up arms with the Taliban. He received training at a camp associated with Al-Qaeda and met Osama bin Laden.

The American Taliban was captured in November 2001, during the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi, a violent Taliban prison uprising where American CIA officer Johnny "Mike" Spann was killed.

Former DOJ Lawyer Claims Race Related Corruption Behind Dropped New Black Panther Voter Intimidation Case


Why did the Obama administration refuse to pursue the case against the New Black Panther Party (NBPP)?

Former DOJ lawyer J. Christian Adams, turned whistleblower, claims race related corruption is the motive behind the DOJ dropping the voter intimidation case against the NBPP.

Today, Adams testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in regards to the explosive allegations.

J. Christian Adams quit his job at the DOJ in protest over the alleged corruption. Adams is an election lawyer and served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice; in that capacity he was assigned to the NBPP voter intimidation case.

The poll questioned registered voters in the five boroughs between June 21 and 28.

Staten Island priest withdraws support for convent sale to MAS

convent/SI Advance photo
Fr. Keith Fennesy, pastor of St. Margaret Mary Church of Midland Beach, Staten Island recently withdrew support for the sale of the church’s empty convent to the radical Muslim group, MAS.
Read More

SI ADVANCE UPDATE>>> MAS responds to the pastor's withdrawal of support:

photo of Mahdi Bray, executive director of MAS

The MAS response is dated today and bears a Washington dateline.

The text reads as follows:

"In reference to Rev. Keith Fennessy's letter withdrawing his support for the mosque purchase sale in Staten Island, N.Y., we feel strongly that much of what is taking place now is being driven by fear and hysteria, with some of it being stirred up by professional groups that have a history of being prejudiced against Muslims.

We are American citizens and we love our country. We do not operate as an extension of any non-American religious or political organization. What have we done wrong to cause anyone to deny us the right to build a house of worship?

Nevertheless, we believe in the good will of the Catholic community leaders, and that ultimately they will do the right thing and allow this sale to be completed. We know that the Catholic community in the past has endured some of the same prejudice and fear mongering that we, as Muslims, are now facing.

What should we tell our children? That as Muslims we are second class citizens without religious and civil rights? Or that the 1st and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution become void merely because you are an American Muslim?

We firmly believe that the majority of Catholics in this great nation of ours does not share the view that people should be denied their religious and constitutional rights to build a house of worship simply because their faith tradition is different from the tradition of many of their neighbors.

The call to resist prejudice and bigotry is both a moral and a spiritual imperative shared by all faiths within the Abrahamic tradition. Sometimes it is difficult to face the hysteria of prejudice, yet this is exactly what all people of faith are called to do. And, despite this letter, we remain optimistic that our intention to build a place of worship in this community in Staten Island will be successful.

We believe this, because we believe that the goodness and decency of the American people will ultimately triumph over religious prejudice and fear."

[end of MAS response]

Hopefully, the decent American people will not accept a group that embraces hate & terror, the rejection of MAS is not about religion but a rejection of hate.

If Muslims wish to hide behind religion for protection, while they join groups such as MAS to usurp our constitution shame on them; hopefully the decent American people will not be useful idiots for such nefarious ideology and organizations.
