Raheel Raza on the 9/11 Mosque

My friend Raheel Raza speaks out on O'Reilly. She is awesome. We need more people like her and Tarek Fatah and Salim Mansur.

Ms. Raza has nailed it! Great response to Manhattan Mosque Madness.

A mosque near Ground Zero would be "an exclusive place of prayer for Muslims" which, she says, can't conceivably be thought of as either "open" or "tolerant" on the part of Muslims who want to build it. She calls it a "slap in the face to Americans," and blames political correctness and "bleeding heart white liberals," like Mayor Bloomberg.

WOW!

I deeply appreciate Ms. Raza's very humane and sensitive observations on this issue. As she points out, bleeding heart white liberals like Bloomberg make life a lot more difficult for moderate Muslims, like Ms. Raza, who do not support the militant agenda of radical Islam.

Liberal white guilt and political correctness is harming moderate muslims (NO KIDDING).

Where is the money coming from?

Clearly the New York elite, organizers don't feel the noise should prevent their agenda.

The question is how much noise will be generated from the community? Will they boycott this place for its exclusivity and lack of tolerance for the loss of life by extremists?

Hell will freeze over before we see anything like that on CBC.

Yes, I agree, Raheel Raza is one of a kind. It's always the muslim women who keep fighting the good fights with every ounce of courage....in Canada.
