Stop the Mosque at Ground Zero
HUMAN EVENTS PETITION TO STOP THE MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO
One paragraph from the petition:
Throughout Islamic history, the placement of mosques has been an expression of conquest and superiority over non-Muslims. Muslims built the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock on the site of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem to assert Islam’s superiority over Judaism. Similarly, the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Constantinople was converted into a mosque to assert the superiority of Islam over Christianity. An estimated 2,000 mosques in India were built on the sites of Hindu temples for the same reason. Even the proposed name of the Ground Zero mosque, “Cordoba House,” is a clear historical reference to the Spanish city where a church was converted into a mosque after the city was conquered by a Muslim army.
