Separation of Church and Hate:The Kate Mosque Solution

by Greg Palast

Since everyone seems to have an opinion about the mosque near Ground Zero (and President Obama has two), I’d like to ask you all a couple of questions:

Given that white Christian supremacist Tim McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City Federal Building, shouldn’t we ban white churches from Oklahoma?

As New York City’s indigenous Lanape Natives died at Ground Zero by the thousands when overrun by Christian colonists, shouldn’t we ban Christian churches from their sacred ground?

If a mosque near Ground Zero is bad, then why not ban all Muslims from downtown New York? For this to work, should we require all Muslims in the city to wear yellow crescents?

My office was in the WTC towers, which will now be rebuilt with all the upscale shops I remember. So, Mrs. Palin, are you saying it’s OK for Muslims to shop at Ground Zero as long as they don’t pray there?

The new tower will have the old one’s Off-Track Betting windows and bars with after-work “happy hours.” So here’s a solution to make everyone happy: Why not camouflage the mosque as a place to gamble and get into your secretary’s panties?

How about disguising it as a discount fashion shop: Kate Mosque? Or as a Disney retail outlet: Mickey Mosque?

Jamie Kilstein has suggested to me that we ban Burger Kings from Ground Zero in honor of the victims of heart disease. But Jamie, the BKs are memorials to remind us that in the eyes of God, all of us – no matter what religion – are just hamburger meat.

“O. Bin Laden” signed Glenn Beck’s petition to ban mosques from Ground Zero. Al Qaeda sure as hell doesn’t want Muslims and Christians worshipping in amicable proximity.

Several new Christian churches have been welcomed near Ground Zero … in Hiroshima.

Am I being too kum-ba-yah by suggesting some of the money raised for the mosque go to building a synagogue in Saudi Arabia, rebuilding the Latin Church in Gaza burnt by Hamas kooks, rebuilding the Babri Masjid mosque burnt down by Hindi fascists, rebuild the Hindi temples destroyed by Sinhalese Buddhists, and for Christ’s sake, build a bridge, not a wall, to share, not divide, Al-Aksa and the Dome of the Rock?


And one last question:

Why is the Right Wing so upset the President is a Black Muslim foreigner?

After all, the last bunch of Presidents, white Christians all, screwed things up so badly, why not try something different?

    Well, I think the president should be born in this country by parents who were born in this country, and not be a dual loyalist. I don’t really care about the religion as long as he/she upholds the Constitution and respects all religions, gets rid of the Patriot Act, Homeland Security Act, Military Commissions Act; most of the Executive Orders (which are no more than royal decrees) and the Fed; enforce our existing immigration laws and especially see that Article IV., Section 4 of our Constitution is enforced. He/She should see that AIPAC is registered as a foreign agent and show no favoritism to any one nation over the others, as George Washington advised in his farewell address. But that’s just my opinion and wish list, which I don’t think is going to happen. The federal government is so evil and corrput it would eat its own before it would allow a true representative government to exist anymore. We are stuck with two pre-chosen candidates who have sworn total fealty to Israel come hell or high water.

    Good article.

    BTW, I read, and not on a zionist owned mainstream site, that the location of the mosque was five blocks away from ground zero and don’t believe muslims committed 9/11. The dancing Israelis, filming the incident, high-fiving and celebrating as the towers burned (which indicates foreknowledge), were the only ones arrested on 9/11. Osama bin Dead a Long Time wasn’t even put on the FBI’s most wanted list because there wasn’t any proof he did it, according to an FBI representative. And many of the supposed hijackers have been proven to be still alive. A certain middle eastern country are well known for killing humans all over the world and stealing their passports when it suits them.

    Of course the real issue is that Arab Muslims didn’t do 9/11. It wasn’t White Christians either.

    Americans largely hate (however irrationally) Muslims. This is because our handlers insist that we hate victims and ignore the existence of our justified enemies. Real enemies exist; they are not Muslims (who are being victimized in mass). Our enemies are a minority of crooks who own our media and our moneys. It is important that we do not let them take our minds as ransom. Hatred is justified–but it should not be directed toward Arabs or Muslims. Ban Synagogues, and I will support the decree.

    I love this. Hate will not work. At all. It will not work under any circumstances if one is attempting to build a community of any sort. Make any excuses you want but it doesn’t work. It never has(Crack a book and read about Nero,Julius Caesar, or Magnus Maximus) and it never will.
