58% of New York Voters Against Mosque Near Ground Zero in NYC


Who is being TOLERANT of those who lost LOVED ONES on 9-11 … America, HAVE WE FORGOTTEN?

58% of New York City voters are against the building of a Muslim mosque near ground zero, while only 20% are in favor. The PC crowd in this country will be the death of us. If it is all about tolerance as the Islamic apologists say, why are the folks who want to place a Mosque in the shadows of “Ground Hero” being tolerant and empathetic of the feelings of those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001? Why isn’t tolerance a two way street?

Most voters in New York (58%) oppose the building of an Islamic mosque near Ground Zero in New York City.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that just 20% favor the building of a mosque near the 9/11 Ground Zero sight, while 21% are not sure.  These findings are very similar to those found nationwide.

Some of those in favor of the mosque have argued that it will “honor” the 9/11 victims by promoting the peaceful side of Islam, but 60% of voters in New York lack confidence that this is truly the motivation behind construction.  Thirty-one percent (31%) are confident the mosque is being built for this reason.  This includes 12% who are Very Confident and 39% who are Not At All Confident.

58% of New Yorkers have NOT FORGOTTEN


Of all places to erect a Muslim mosque … in the shadows of “Ground Zero”? For those who think this is the right thing and nearly 60% of NY’ers find it inappropriate, we have truly FORGOTTEN.

      The ‘Peaceful Side’ of Islam is marred by the approximately
      10% Radical Islamists in their ranks. 10% of Islam amounts
      to approximately 100 million bad guys making up the
      militant portion. It is said that the ‘Peaceful Side’ is mostly
      passive about condemning the dark side due to fear of

      #1- Right with you, Sister!

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

      REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

      REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

      President Obama has directed the United States REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 44-Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp. This is the second one. He embraces Muslims, and claims we should be more tolerant of all Muslims in general.

      President Obama continues to make our own Nation more and more divisive by embracing and bowing to some of the US’s most hostile adversaries and foreign Diplomats, etc. etc. Mr. President—-Give back that BOGUS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, TOO WHILE YOU ARE AT IT!!!!! It is fraudulent and insulting to believe that you EVER ACCEPTED IT in the first place when you openly encourage the Citizens you have taken an Oath to protect to embrace our damn enemies! Or to embrace ALL Muslims, when included in that group are the extreme Muslim Terrorists who have murdered thousands of AMERICANS ON OUR OWN SOIL. We hold no grudges against those innocent peace keeping Muslims in general, but will NEVER FORGIVE THE TERRORISTS WHO CONTINUE TO BE A THREAT TO US ON A DAILY BASIS WHO YOU DO NOTHING ABOUT.

      REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT & protest the proposal above. There should not be a Muslim Mosque or Muslim Building/Community Center ANYWHERE, REPEAT ANYWHERE near Ground Zero out of RESPECT for the families and American lives lost there, period. Bloomberg can disagree with whomever he wants to, but get a clue too, Mr. Mayor!

      Please remember, everyone. As Americans, we really need to continue to honor the United States of America !

      The so called “Muslim religion” is nothing but a political system/cult of hate and control that condons military force and “Jihad” to force people into their belief system.

      It is time that christian and other real religions began to put a stop to anything these people try to do.

    6. Paula on July 24th, 2010 12:36 pm

      I don’t understand why Mayor Mike is approving this mosque being built. It’s as though he has turned against New Yorkers and Americans,,,but why? Wish Guliani was still mayor!!!!!!!
      SM: Bloomberg is an idiot and always has been.

    7. wolfgang on July 24th, 2010 4:15 pm

      Is Bloomberg getting a payoff of some kind to let this go through? Just wondering. Maybe a stray airliner will hit the thing, has happened before you know.

    8. NGBoston on July 25th, 2010 2:43 pm

      #7-Wolf–No payoff. Bloomberg just continues to maintain that being open-minded, liberal and democratic is what “New York is all about”. It’s what it is built on—you know- that “Big Apple” the “melting pot” of USA type of thing bc for such a large Metropolis it is so diverse.

      To which, I respond—So what, Bloomberg! You are still a jerkoff if you get behind this and don’t do everything in your power to let a Muslim Mosque or the proposed community center BE LOCATED SOMEWHERE ELSE in your City and not anywhere NEAR the damn Ground Zero Sight! How DISRESPECTFUL to every American! Well, Duh for you Michael Bloomberg! Idiot

    9. mc on July 27th, 2010 7:01 pm

      Got a question for the New Yorkers here…going to let Bloomberg win a 4th term in the next election???

    10. Dolf on August 11th, 2010 2:39 am

      How many muslim US soldiers died in those attacks?

      How many muslims died in the 9/11 attack?

      enough…or is the fact they were muslim not a reason to also remember them?

      and isn’t the US constitution about freedom of religion?
      SM: Sorry Dolf, this isn’t about freedom of religion … its about where is the tolerance and compassion of Muslims behind this venture for the victims and families of 9-11?

      Even Muslims are starting to talk out against this and think its a terrible idea.

      You know why it stinks to the high heavens? There is no Muslim community in the area where the Mosque is being built. It is not a residental area … its a business one. Wouldn’t one think you would build a community center Mosque in say, oh a community?

      This is a political power play and Bloomberg and the rest of the gutless Democrat politicans should be ashamed.

    11. Dolf on August 12th, 2010 7:42 am

      because those muslims don’t want all the negative attention.

      but i agree I would like to see the moderate muslims stand up and defend the correct interpretation of Islam.

      although they will be killed quick by the nutjobs
      SM: Moderate Muslims should stand up and state that building a Mosque within the shadows of ground zero is hardly an act of bulding bridges. Unless the bridge leads to Mecca.

    12. Saudi King Abdullah Plan to Move Ground Zero Mosque to West Village | Scared Monkeys on December 19th, 2010 12:42 pm

      [...] the “tolerant”  West Village. With the mosque no longer in the shadow of Ground Zero, who would object to this plan? A Manhattan lawyer with ties to the Saudi royal family is sounding out officials and community [...]
