The HISTORY OF ISLAM may hold answers to WHY it is so important for Moslems to build that GROUND ZERO MOSQUE..

pagans’ most prominent spot, the Ka’aba, into the Masjid al-Haram

In 634, Rightly Guided Caliph Umar conquered Syria
and turned the Christians’ most prominent spot, the Church of Job,

Byzantine church into the Great Mosque of Gaza.

In 638, Caliph Umar conquered Jerusalem.

From 1250-1517, Mamluk Muslims controlled the Golan Heights and used the ancient Synagogue of Katzrin as a mosque.

1387, Turkish Muslims conquered Thessaloniki and turned the Katholikon
Monastery and the Church of Aghia Sophia, which housed the relics of
Saint Gregorios Palamas, into mosques, as Symeon of Thessaloniki
recorded: “The greatest number of the buildings of the churches fell to
them, of which the first was the Holy Church of the Savior. …
These were trampled underfoot and the infidels rejoiced in them. … Most
of thhe religious buildings in the city were despoiled, while altars
were demolished and sacred things profaned.”

On May 29,
1453, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Constantinople and turned the great

church in Christendom for a thousand years, the church’s four acres of
gold mosaics were covered with whitewash and Quran verses.

1458, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Athens and turned the Greeks’ most

    Islam is not a religion, it's a way of life. One that we cannot afford to have in our free world. Obama is hell bent on destroying this country and turning it over to the hateful Islamics, He is a muslim, there is no question about it.
  • Wilson 2010/09/14 00:32:02
    (I see a pattern here)

    So Muslims basically want to displace any place of respect and authority, ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS, replacing it with their own thing.

    and on 9-11-01 the St Nicholas Church was destroyed when the Twin Towers cruched it. Since then NYC the port authority and the Mayors office have been given the Church the run around about rebuilding. Its been 9 years it would be nice if this got as much attention as the Mosgue has

    People had better wake up! My God they want to wipe isreal off the face of the earlh and they want to kill all Americans! There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim! Obama is all for the mosque being built. That tells you just how much sensitivity he has for the American people and how much he hates America! I only wish this traitor could be impeached!
  • Dar 2010/09/12 10:27:35
  • Leonine 2010/09/12 06:51:38
    Amen! So tell me why does our illustrious leader, obama, see a no problem with this new show of evil? This is no longer simpy a case of some twisted members of a religious group, but an entire religion which needs to be stopped. I don't care any longer about thier right to religious freedom, I care more for the right to live and it is quickly coming down to this fact. Which would you choose? I choose the right to life, because I want to live.
  • Lynn 2010/09/12 06:06:58
    I wonder when liberals will ever understand what this means.....?
  • Leonine Lynn 2010/09/12 06:52:39
    When we are all being forced to bow our bodies to their will, or die.
  • Lynn Leonine 2010/09/12 06:58:44
    Somehow, I still see them blaming Bush....
  • Leonine Lynn 2010/09/12 07:42:13
    I am so sick of all of the blaming, when we have a traitor in office right now! I feel as though I have lived all my life only to wake up in a nightmare. Who would have ever guessed that we would be in the middle of a war, only to have one of them become our president and yet, he is still not being impeached.
  • Lynn Leonine 2010/09/12 16:04:49

    Now, how about we go take them all back?
  • BoomLover 2010/09/12 01:03:06
    Continuing this story line, we come to the World Trade Centers Twin Towers...soon to be the next Mosque built upon "conquered" territory......

    This is the most evil of groups in the world. They should be exterminated.

    I have never really hated anyone or thing in my life, because I believed that God did not want this of me, however, I have come to truly dislike (perhaps hate, although this is an alien feeling for me) these twisted, hate filled individuals who need to be stopped at all costs.
  • JT For ... Leonine 2010/09/12 11:10:20

    I understand. I do not like the word hate either. Even though I use it in conversation, I cannot say that I have ever hated anyone. But Islam is pushing it and I think this could turn out to be a very hateful time in history.
  • Leonine JT For ... 2010/09/13 04:14:49
    So very true. I am afraid that this time in history will find a great deal of pain brought upon america, far more then any other time in our history.

    So true, yet the ruling powers refuse to impeach him for his lies to the american people. Just how much more damage can he cause in his 2 years remaining? Can he destroy us completely? I fear what is to come and I am too old to be running for cover, I never thought I would live to see the end of our world, but I am beginning to believe I will.

    It is truly scary to see what the progressives and this Muslim president Obama are doing to our country. They must be stopped!
  • Leonine Dora Ra... 2010/09/13 04:16:10
    what is so frightening to me is that there are americans who still believe he is not muslim! How blind is the american people who feel this way?

    Yes, he has definitely shown where his loyalities are.
