Pamela Geller and I led the resistance to the Ground Zero mega-mosque, and we won. 70% of Americans oppose the Mosque. Mosque organizers have dropped plans for a 16-story mega-mosque. They did not break ground for their new building on September 11, 2011, as Daisy Khan initially announced that they would. They”re holding soirees in the old Burlington Coat Factory building that was severely damaged in the 9/11 attacks, and that they had planned to tear down, and are pretending that their “community center” is already open.
But it is nothing like what they had planned. With Obama behind them, and New York Mayor Bloomberg doing everything he could to get them past all legal and procedural hurdles, and with the media and government elites solidly in their corner, we still prevailed. Our rallies (here and here and here) as well as our conferences, Action Alerts, and ongoing protests and information pieces at Atlas Shrugs and Jihad Watch ultimately ground the Islamic supremacist machine to a halt.
They may be back to fight for their Islamic supremacist mosque — and so will we. In the meantime, they have this tent in Washington.
