We must be careful not to offend Muslims - Geez, are we nuts?

Multitudes of Muslims around the world chant "death to America", but we are advised to be careful not to offend them.  A local Muslim who is pro American and anti-violent Islam once said to me, "I fear they will win because they don't have a 'turn the other cheek' teaching"

Here is an article by Newt Gingrich on the subject followed by a video of some of the most vile hate speech I have ever heard:
Statement on the Proposed “Cordoba House” Mosque near Ground Zero

by Newt Gingrich

There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as

there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia. The time for

double standards that allow Islamists to behave aggressively toward us

while they demand our weakness and submission is over.

The proposed "Cordoba House" overlooking the World Trade Center site –

where a group of jihadists killed over 3000 Americans and destroyed

one of our most famous landmarks - is a test of the timidity,

passivity and historic ignorance of American elites. For example,

most of them don’t understand that “Cordoba House” is a deliberately

insulting term. It refers to Cordoba, Spain – the capital of Muslim

conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards

by transforming a church there into the world’s third-largest mosque


Today, some of the Mosque’s backers insist this term is being used to

"symbolize interfaith cooperation" when, in fact, every Islamist in

the world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of Islamic conquest. It is a

sign of their contempt for Americans and their confidence in our

historic ignorance that they would deliberately insult us this way.

Those Islamists and their apologists who argue for "religious

toleration" are arrogantly dishonest. They ignore the fact that more

than 100 mosques already exist in New York City. Meanwhile, there are

no churches or synagogues in all of Saudi Arabia. In fact no Christian

or Jew can even enter Mecca. And they lecture us about tolerance.

If the people behind the Cordoba House were serious about religious

toleration, they would be imploring the Saudis, as fellow Muslims, to

immediately open up Mecca to all and immediately announce their

intention to allow non-Muslim houses of worship in the Kingdom. They

should be asked by the news media if they would be willing to lead

such a campaign.

We have not been able to rebuild the World Trade Center in nine years.

Now we are being told a 13 story, $100 million megamosque will be

built within a year overlooking the site of the most devastating

surprise attack in American history.

Finally where is the money coming from? The people behind the Cordoba

House refuse to reveal all their funding sources.

America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive

designed to undermine and destroy our civilization. Sadly, too many of

our elites are the willing apologists for those who would destroy them

if they could.

No mosque.

No self deception.

No surrender.

The time to take a stand is now - at this site on this issue. \

Take eight minutes and fifty-six seconds and WATCH this. If you are concerned about border security, homeland security, personal security, then watch this video.....

A video every Westerner should see!

Anyone (INCLUDING Barack Obama) entertaining ideas of western democracies establishing friendly relations with the radicals of the Islamic world should watch this video. While watching the inflammatory rhetoric of the speaker, remember that this is not a Jihadist from Iran but a professor from Kuwait - a country with every reason to be grateful to the USA for liberating it from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein's invasion.
