We are two months from the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. Ten years seems like a long time for some, but for others it was just yesterday. For much of America, the wounds are still fresh from that day and I would challenge you to find anyone who can’t recall where they were or what they were doing that Tuesday morning in September.
A house can go up in as little as 60 days. An entire subdivision in a year. A strip mall in as little as 4 months. Miles and miles of highway extensions to create a belt-way around whole cities only take a few years these days. A major office building complex can be planned and brought to completion in less than 4 years.
So, How long does it take to build a Memorial to 9/11?
Almost ten years, however it’s still not finished. This is a National disgrace. The video above shows progress being made but recent photos show it is nowhere near what the envisioned finished product should be.
More attention has been put into The Ground Zero Victory Mosque than into the progress of construction at the Memorial. Mainstream media barely covers it, if at all. The Families have seemingly been forgotten and are fighting for the memories and dignity of their loved ones against the likes of Imam Rauf and his wife, Daisy Kahn. The news stories may have died down a bit, but they are still pushing their Agenda for America and for the 9/11 Memorial.
Also struggling with this pair and their ‘mega-mosque’ is St. Nicholas’s Church. Bloomberg has fundraised and backed Rauf to build his Victory Symbol but has not lifted so much as a finger to help rebuild the Greek Church, which was built in 1918 and is a Historical Landmark.
What we have instead is a dhimmi Mayor pushing a Victory Mosque – one whose original name was not Park 51 but the Cordoba House, also called the Cordoba Initiative. Those unfamiliar with what it means to name it after Cordoba can read here about it. Religious freedom in this country should be balanced and equal. Shame on NYC for not making more noise about this.
Ten Years. There should be a strong and vibrant place for us to remember our loved ones lost on that day. What we have is a Memorial only partly built and the Jihad still be waged in a second set of attacks via Islamists like Rauf and his wife. This Mosque represents conquest and submission. As Pam Geller said, ‘In Islam I do not think you can minimize the importance of symbolism…and this is one mother of a symbol.’
