Mosque Khan job: there's no comparison, NY Post

Now here's some irony for you: Rauf's wife has the chutzpah to compare the hatred of Muslims in the US to anti-Semitism.

This facade of understanding has always been one-sided when you speak of Islam and the Jews.

Where was the compassion and sensitivity when Muslims built the Dome on the Rock on Temple Mount, the site of the first and second temples, sacred ground to the Jews?

This is a one-sided issue and the Muslims come out on top.

No one should think this an honest oversight by Imam Rauf and his supporters.

Since 9/11, we have heard little to no remorse from many nations and communities.

distorting the constitution.......

Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and

subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of

illegitimate government.

mosque money may come from states sponsoring terrorism...

Goldberg's analysis of the mosque mess points to the parties who could have turned this into a non-issue with a little foresight.

Bloomberg's trite statement for those opposed to the mosque was to "shut up already," but there are still too many unanswered questions that New Yorkers have. And Obama's two-sided message has only added to the confusion.

There is a right and a wrong to this Mosque being built so close to Ground Zero, and now 70 percent of the nation has spoken against its being built.

Regarding all the talk about separation of church and state, that clause only addresses not having state-sponsored religion.

We all hope Gov. Paterson does something to find another venue for this mosque.

Crocodile Tears from Rangel..........

THE ISSUE: Rep. Charlie Rangel's House floor speech responding to charges of ethics violations.

***

"Shades of Richard Nixon" (Aug. 11) is an appropriate summary of Rep. Charlie Rangel's rant in the House chamber.

It was sad, and suggests that the 80-year-old Rangel may need some professional help from a therapist to inform him about being in denial.

What else should his colleagues feel but shame? In light of the crumbling economic woes faced by Congress, here's a grown man accused of 13 ethical violations crying like a baby.

If this is leadership, we're in for some real trouble ahead.

An Iman Becomes our Newest Diplomat.........

ripped from the pages of the New York Post the very same Iman who wishes to antagonize

the population of NYC has now miraculously become a Diplomat for the State Dept. Along with

his new credentials he will be on a month long journey to the Middle East explaining to

majority Muslim communities how to get along a little better. let me just review, your

taxpayer dime is paying for a man who with the help of the Obama administration will try

to teach communities on the other side of the world how to act. i would suggest if i may, in

trying to teach the Obama administration and Secretatry of State Clinton to keep their noses

out of local, State issues. the majority of New Yorkers are opposed to a Mosque and community

center just blocks away from the World Trade Center site. This administrations agenda is all

about fulfilling their own idealistic muses instead of protection the citizens of this

nation. the faster this bunch of pretenders are gone the better.

And for those who don't know, Tarp was inacted by the Bush adminstration to bail out

the banks, which may i add have been turning a handsome profit for the government. name just

one policy by Obama that's doing the same.
