Architect Redesigns Church Destroyed on 9/11 to Resemble Churches that Became Mosques

Mr. Calatrava designed the church and will attend its groundbreaking on Saturday. If everything goes according to schedule, the building should be finished in 2016 or early 2017.

While the 9/11 Memorial, with its twin reflecting pools and alleys of trees, masterfully creates an opportunity for quiet reflection, there’s also something to be said for a sanctuary with four walls—and perhaps for lighting a memorial candle, no matter what religion you practice, or even if you practice no religion at all.

“All the circumstances around 9/11, the memorial embodies that very well,” Mr. Calatrava said as he sat in the stately Park Avenue townhouse that does double duty as his home and his office.

“This is what I want; this is what the church wants: a very ecumenical place; they would like to have 24 hours the church open.”

But Mr. Calatrava conceded the public has the last word.

Hopefully the public reject it. But the archdiocese seems on board with the ecumenical, non-church church idea: St. Nicholas Church, Destroyed on 9/11, to Rebuild With Byzantine Design

the reflection looks more mosque-like in this rendering

That a Spanish architect should design a modern Byzantine church in Lower Manhattan for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, based on buildings in Turkey that were used for Islamic worship, goes to the heart of the message the archdiocese says it hopes to send with the $20 million project. The new St. Nicholas is to open by early 2016.

“If I may quote Jesus, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people,’ ” said the Rev. Mark Arey, a spokesman for the archdiocese. “It will be open to everyone: the believer, the unbeliever, the Orthodox Christian, the atheist. Whoever you are, this is a space that you can come into and find some meditative solace.”

The architect claims it’s inspiration is two Byzantine churches…later conquered and converted into mosques.

Other than the barely discernible cross on top of the dome there is nothing on the exterior or interior for that matter that even suggests it is a church, never mind a rebuilt St. Nicholas.

At one point the city refused to allow St. Nicholas to rebuild. Was making it a mosque-like structure that would not offend Muslims a requirement for allowing them to rebuild?

This is the Flight 93 Memorial to Islamic Terrorists and Ground Zero Mosque redux.

They aren’t a minority…and they aren’t radical. There is one Koran. One Muhammad. All Muslims revere him.

Houston: ISIS Wannabe Pledges Allegiance to Terror Group in Front of Cop

via Clarion Project.

A shocking video has been posted online showing a Muslim-American in the Houston area pledging allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group in front of a police officer while being escorted away from a mosque.

The video was uploaded September 21 by a man who goes by the names of Abdul-Rahman Baghdadi or Houston Baghdadi.

Baghdadi describes himself as an “Islamic Chaliphate [sic] State Fact Reporter” and identifies his locations as Houston, Las Vegas and Chicago on Twitter. He sent out a tweet describing himself as an “early student,” indicating that he may be a recent convert to Islam.

Baghdadi’s tweets also show ISIS insignia being placed on a bus, a highway sign, a truck and over an advertisement for an aquarium on a car. A second truck is shown with an ISIS logo on but Baghdadi coupled it with a hashtag of “FBlies.”


 Notice the cop says he can’t take his shoes off so he won’t go in? Has the department been forced to undergo Islamic indoctrination?

Watching a few of the ISIS-wannabe’s videos suggests he is a) mentally unstable or b) acting as an ISIS supporter in an attempt to make mosques that spew Koranic hatred look better.

At a minimum he should be picked up for vandalism.

Read it all and check out the photos at Clarion then add your theory in the comments section.

ISIS Using U.S. Tents at Jihad Training Camps?

via New Islamic State Training Video Emerges — Pay Very Close Attention to What Is Printed on the Tents Used by Terrorists | Video | TheBlaze.com.

Militants with the Islamic State group on Monday captured a military training camp in western Iraq, inching closer to full control of the restive Anbar province, as a spate of deadly bombings shook Baghdad, hitting mostly Shiite neighborhoods and leaving at least 30 dead.

The attacks, which came as Iraqi Shiites marked a major holiday for their sect with families crowding the streets in celebration, raised new concerns that the Sunni militant group is making gains despite U.S.-led coalition airstrikes.

A new alleged Islamic State training video also emerged this week, apparently showing how their fighters are trained. And if you look closely at the tents used by the terrorists, they are clearly marked “US.”

 Purported video:

Meanwhile:

This ‘scorched earth’ policy is being waged by jihadis whose most brutal members seem to be Europeans. ‘They are Chechen, they are English, they are from all over Europe. We know because we can hear their accents,’ said Mr Bakki.

Another man, Khalid, a teacher, claimed he had seen two fighters involved in the crushing of Kobane, and he had been told by a friend that the pair were boasting they were British.

New Jersey: 3rd burka bank robbery in last month

via Camden County Police Searching For Burqa-wearing Serial Bank Robber « CBS Philly.

AUDUBON, NJ (CBS) – The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is reaching out to the public for help capturing a suspected serial bank robber who wears a burqa.

Authorities say they’re looking for a man who passed a note to a clerk demanding cash at the Beneficial Bank on the 100 block of South White Horse Pike around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money, and police say he may be responsible for two other robberies at area banks.

The first happened on Sept. 17 at the Susquehanna Bank on Market Street in Camden. The second happened on Sept. 25th at the Audubon Savings Bank on South White Horse Pike in Audubon.

Police say that in all three robberies, the man was dressed in a black burqa. He’s described as a light skinned male, and in the September robberies, he fled on a BMX bike.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.

The fruits of diversity, immigration and political cowardice.

VIDEO: Islam on Campus

via Atlas Shrugs…who has the courage to say what none of the Jewish students in the video would say: the anti-Semitism on campus comes almost entirely from Muslims.

Unfortunately, it is happening again, and when Muslims are done with the Jews in the U.S. they will come for the non-Jews in the U.S. They’ve already started.
