HI-CALIBER Investigations (CA State lic #23442) Counter-Terrorism Speaking Engagements: http://www.terrorism.bz/ A Muslim Speaks Out Against the “Ground Zero Mosque”
There’s still time to sign our petition opposing the “Ground Zero Mosque”
On May 24th, the New York Post published an important op-ed written by our friend and colleague, Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.
You can read Dr. Jasser’s op-ed here. Following is a short excerpt.
I am an American Muslim dedicated to defeating the ideology that fuels global lslamist terror -- political Islam. And I don't see such a "center" actually fighting terrorism or being a very "positive" addition near Ground Zero, no matter how well intentioned.
To put it bluntly, Ground Zero is the one place in America where Muslims should think less about teaching Islam and "our good side" and more about being American and fulfilling our responsibilities to confront the ideology of our enemies.
How we wish that the White House, Congress, and our law enforcement and intelligence communities would reach out more to Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser, instead of legitimizing Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations that were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial.
Organizations like ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and CAIR (Council on American Islamic-Relations).
If you haven’t yet signed our petition opposing the “Ground Zero Mosque,” will you take 60 seconds and join the over 52,000 who have signed it thus far?
an ideologically-based supremacist mindset that demands that societies accommodate them, rather than their assimilating into their host societies. This also reflects sharia law’s requirement that human laws must always be subordinate to Islamic law.

"Free speech is a fundamental right that is the foundation of modern society. Western governments and media outlets cannot allow themselves to be bullied into giving up this precious right due to threats of violence. We must not fool ourselves into believing that we can appease the radical jihadist movement by allowing them to set up parallel societies and separate legal systems, or by granting them special protection from criticism.”
THE RIGHT TO PRACTICE ONE'S FAITH .........WHAT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE
The right to practice one’s faith in a free society does not and cannot include the right to silence other people who disagree with and/or criticize tenets of that faith. For any religious faith to demand that in a free society is tantamount to demanding the beginning of the end of freedom in that society. Which is precisely why ACT! for America’s mission includes rising in defense of our liberty.
