60 Minutes On the Park51 Project

27 Sep

Not many stories about Park51 include interviews with both Pamela Geller and Imam Rauf, but 60 Minutes’ does.  It’s well worth the almost 13 minutes.

    I watched it. And since I’m not a NYC resident, what they decide has no impact on me. I saw the walk from the site to Ground Zero. It’s not right on top of ground zero as many have said.

    A Charlotte talk radio caller states that the building is designed in the shape of an Islamic Crescent, with the star on the end pointing to both ground Zero, and Mecca. I don’t know if this is true or not. But if it is, it is indeed an Islamic Victory Mosque, showing triumph of Islam over the Infidel Americans. If this is the case, It shouldn’t be built where it is planned to be built. Perhaps the Dakota Roadhouse next door could be turned in to a nice Gay Bar, with specials for Islamic homosexuals. Make for an exciting block.

    Holy hell – actual reporting! It is really sad that it’s a surprise to see a decent piece these days.

    The 60 Minute piece was surprising. The Imam said all the right things, but he came off as insensitive to the larger community. He talked the talk about reconciliation but his eyes told a different story: He didn’t give a shit what other thought; He “would succeed”, he said.
    Scott Pelly kept pressing him on why the center had to be within 2 blocks of Ground Zero, but he had no answer.

    The “other Ground Zero”- the Pentagon, has a room for multi-denominational prayer, including the Moslem call to prayer. Interesting point.

    Ms. Geller was a wacky zealot but the Imam wasn’t much better.

    For years I could not understand why “moderate Muslims” would not denounce the juhadists Moslems. This Imam is supposedly a moderate but his criticism of jihadists didn’t come across as heartfelt. Something didn’t feel right about the man.

    Well, Hell did freeze over. I have to concur with Bobbycat about the Imam. This guy’s so full of shit his eyes are brown. He refuses to denounce Hamas, and he’s all about doubletalk.
    Worst part is he’s the government’s envoy to Mid-Eastern countries, supposedly preaching non violence to the governments where the Islamist Jihadi whackadoos hang out.

    Some are saying that the crescents on all the mosques of the world have been rotated to point to Ground Zero. This was done to create a massive Muslim mind control energy beam. The energy generated from this alignment will be used to immobilize the American military. the plan is for President Obama to work as an inside agent to arrange for a phony Ground Zero memorial at which all the to officials and American military planners will be present. The Islamic energy beam will be activated by Obama at just the right time with a radio switch located in his flag lapel pin. The switch will set off a relay in the the nearby new Ground Zero mosque. The beam will instantly transform all American generals and top government officials who are present into Muslims. At this point Obama will rip off a mask which has concealed his Muslim beard and institute sharia law.

    STEEL–your command of literary satire is positively Swiftian.

    You may now be promoted to the seventh grade.

    Why would there be a Flag Pin on the POTUS? He had to be BADGERED into wearing one in the first place. Theory deflated.

  10. STEEL September 28, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    But Hank-NOW he wears one! Ask yourself this. WHY? Why is he wearing one now?! See what I mean? This is very complex plot and he is using our own God fearing love of country against us. It is sick what these Libs have led us to.
