On Sunday, June 6th, 2010, a multi-ethnic, multi-racial coalition of Americans opposed to Islamic violence and intolerance rallied at the site of the  World Trade Center in New York  City.  Crowd estimates ranged from 5,000 (NYPD) to 10,000.

Not one major network sent a satellite truck or camera crew to this event. Without bloggers this newsworthy event would have remained unknown to the public and history.

9/11 families were joined by immigrants from India, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Africa, Iran and Europe to show opposition to the construction of a mega-mosque at Ground Zero. Others flew in from overseas to speak or just to share their particular ethnic communities’ experiences at the hands of Muslims.

These are parents and spouses of firefighters killed on 9/11. The rally took place just a minute’s walk from Ladder 10 Firehouse,
where  their loved ones were stationed for duty that terrible day. Ladder 10 lost seven firefighters.

Crowd estimates ranged from 5,000 (NYPD) to 10,000. The crowd overflowed the police barrier enclosures that ran the full length of two city blocks. This photo shows the enclosure in front of the stage at the intersection of Liberty and Church Streets. The second enclosure ran the length of the next block and can be seen on the other side of the traffic lights.

Thousands of additional participants filled the treed area of Zuccotti Park .

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are the founders of STOP ISLAMIZATION OF  AMERICA, which sponsored the rally. Ms. Geller is a citizen journalist and blogger who runs the human rights web site Atlas Shrugs http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/

Mr. Spencer is the author of several books on Islam and head of the influential web site Jihad watch http://www.ksfo560.com/goout.asp?u=http://www.jihadwatch.com

"Ground Zero is a war memorial; Ground Zero is a burial ground. We are asking for  sensitivity"¦It is unconscionable to build a shrine to the very  ideology that inspired the jihadist attacks at Ground Zero, right  there. We are asking the imam Rauf and Daisy Khan to be sensitive.  For mutual respect and mutual understanding that is demanded of us every day.

There’s a hair-trigger sensitivity in the Muslim world, you can’t run the cartoons, you can’t say Mohammed, this is offensive. This is an offensive mosque. To build a shrine, an Islamic flag of conquest on the sacred ground the cherished site, of a conquered land. This is historic, this is Islamic history. It’s what they do. The St. Sofia in Turkey, the al-Quds, at the holiest Jewish site in Israel . Not here. This is where we take a stand. We must take a stand. We must say no."

I do not believe that the landmarks commission controlled by Mayor Bloomberg is going to stop this mosque. It’s not going to happen.  Here’s Omar Muhamedi, on his human rights council, a CAIR lawyer, who sued the airlines and the Jane and John Does that saw something and said something http://www.meforum.org/1809/exposing-the-flying-imams on those airplanes, if you remember. That’s who’s on his human rights commission. It ain’t gonna happen with Bloomberg. We have to make it happen. You have to get involved."  (Pamela Geller)

Port Authority and NYPD officers kept watch over the rally and were well aware of the need for heightened security at this event. One of their own Port Authority officers, WTC Sergeant Alan T. De  Vona was on duty at the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001, and was  one of the first to help victims of the terrorist attack. He spoke these words to the SIOA rally:

"It’s almost nine years. I’m hoping that America is watching. I’m hoping that America is remembering. Because, make no mistake. September 11 was an act of war. And thank the military that has lost almost 5,000 troops from that day, defending us. I don’t know what to say to jar America’s memory.  I want America to remember.

The issues at stake will certainly affect the heart of American freedom, democracy, cultural  values and tolerance. America is a tolerant country that allows for the free worship of all its citizens. But our tolerance has limits. Do we have to tolerate intolerant Islamic ideology and Muslims who preach intolerant Islam?"

Hindu  human rights activists Narain Kataria, Prasad Yalamanchi and unidentified friend came from  Mississippi and Chicago with banners and flyers highlighting the radical statements of imam Rauf and  his jihadist roots.

Bhupinder Singh Bhurji, Pamela Geller, and Robert Spencer. Singh Bhurji is the president of the NAMDHARI SIKH FOUNDATION. The foundation is a member of the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam (HRCARI). HRCARI is a coalition of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians from  Sudan, Egypt and Iraq, moderate Muslims and Jews "” who are  victims and targets of radical Islam around the globe.  He said, at another rally:

"Radical Islamists are killing people in India, trying to dominate that nation. And here too they come with violence against "infidels."  We are "infidels united," standing together, brown, black and white, against this epoch’s fascist movement. Radical Islam wants to dominate entire world. They want everyone to surrender.  Islam radical or otherwise. They want to put the Islamic flag on White House."

MG_02051

Because of Islamic terrorism, America and the world have seen massive new security measures become a way of life. Anyone openly critical of Islam, or terrorist ideology, must surround themselves with security, or live in hiding. Those courageous enough to confront Islamism are criticized by the cowards and appeasers of the left who seek safety by supporting the enemy. Moderate Muslims were silent when Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered in Amsterdam, just as moderate Muslims in the United States are generally reluctant to speak out against violent Islam. Moderate Muslims also face great danger in speaking out.

MG_0050

Geller and Spencer will press on despite the danger. They hope to inspire Americans to stand up and say enough of political correctness and work to stem the galloping islamization of America and Europe.
