Newt Gingrich Statement on the
Proposed “Cordoba House” Mosque near Ground Zero
July 21, 2010 6pm
There should be no mosque near Ground
Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi
Arabia . The time for double standards that allow Islamists to behave
aggressively toward us while they demand our weakness and submission is
The proposed " Cordoba House" overlooking the World Trade Center site -
where a group of jihadists killed over 3000 Americans and destroyed one
of our most famous landmarks - is a test of the timidity, passivity and
historic ignorance of American elites. For example, most of them don't
understand that Cordoba House is a deliberately insulting term. It
refers to Cordoba, Spain - the capital of Muslim conquerors who
symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a
church there into the world's third-largest mosque complex.
Today, some of the Mosque's backers insist this term is being used to
"symbolize interfaith cooperation" when, in fact, every Islamist in the
world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of Islamic conquest. It is a sign
of their contempt for Americans and their confidence in our historic
ignorance that they would deliberately insult us this way.
Those Islamists and their apologists who argue for "religious
toleration" are arrogantly dishonest. They ignore the fact that more
than 100 mosques already exist in New York City . Meanwhile, there are
no churches or synagogues in all of Saudi Arabia . In fact no Christian
or Jew can even enter Mecca .
And they lecture us about tolerance.
If the people behind the Cordoba House were serious about religious
toleration, they would be imploring the Saudis, as fellow Muslims, to
immediately open up Mecca to all and immediately announce their
intention to allow non-Muslim houses of worship in the Kingdom. They
should be asked by the news media if they would be willing to lead such
We have not been able to rebuild the World Trade Center in nine years.
Now we are being told a 13 story, $100 million megamosque will be built
within a year overlooking the site of the most devastating surprise
attack in American history.
Finally where is the money coming from? The people behind the Cordoba
House refuse to reveal all their funding sources.
America is experiencing an Islamist cultural-political offensive
designed to undermine and destroy our civilization. Sadly, too many of
our elites are the willing apologists for those who would destroy them
if they could.
No self deception.
