The Epicenter of the World
The epicenter of the world is located in two places - Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at Ground Zero in Manhattan, New York.
When Soviet Communism collapsed in 1989 many in the West believed that we had entered a post-historical world; they were wrong. There would be no “peace dividend” – instead, we now have a reinvigorated ideological existential enemy.
The events of 9/11 signaled a fundamental shift in how the world functions, or does not function. Our response to 9/11 will determine the future of humanity.
Freedom of religion is guaranteed to us by our Constitution. This also means that we have freedom from religion; we can choose what we want to believe. This is not the case in Islam.
According to Islamic Sharia law, apostates (one who leaves Islam) are to be killed. This is compliant with the commands of both Allah and Mohammed in Koran, Sira, and Hadith, the trilogy doctrine of Islam.
Death for apostasy is sanctioned in Sharia law and is required according to the Koran.
They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor helper from among them (Koran, 4:89) (Please see Bostom, Death for Apostasy)
Nonie Darwish, noted human rights activist, author, and Executive Director of Former Muslims United, sent a “Freedom Pledge” letter to the leaders of the proposed Ground Zero mosque Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan on October 20, 2009. Signatories of the Pledge promise to not harm or harass or commit violent acts against apostates and to respect the Bill of Rights which guarantees Americans freedom of speech and religion. “We reach out to you with a sincere hope that you and your organization will join with us in ensuring peace and justice, safety and freedom for Muslims,” the letter states, “and former Muslims alike.”
The leadership of the Cordoba House mosque, now called Park51, neither acknowledged nor replied to the FMU Pledge. Ignoring the FMU Freedom Pledge when received appears to be the universal response from the “moderate” Muslim community in the US.
As Freedom of Religion (and freedom from religion) is a Constitutional guarantee, Islamic apostasy tradition and laws are both barbaric and unconstitutional. This would suggest that the Ground Zero mosque or any mosque cannot then be built anywhere within the United States as the ideology promulgated in mosques is in opposition to the Constitution.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;
Islam does not subordinate to the law of the United States; nor does its system of law, Sharia.
