NewsRescue- A growing number of Muslims around the world are rising up and preaching and protesting against the construction of the “Cordoba house”, popularly called the “ground zero Mosque” close to the site of the world trade center attacks in New York City.
But their opposition is not for the reason more common. The many Muslims deny association with the Cordoba institution behind this media and US government supported project that was strangely unanimously approved by the area local council.
Tahir, a Pakistani born, Naturalized US citizen, said in Brooklyn yesterday:
I will never visit that institution or even go near it as much as I can, where haram will be plentiful and they will violate all the tenets of Islam. We know it is the government behind this project as is clear with the unexpected support, and this cordoba initiative, they plan to change Islam and steal it away from the Muslims into some funky joke. This is a very great clear intelligence operation and we Muslims in New York will not be a part of that fun and party house.

Iman Abdul Rashin who spoke to us on phone from Pakistan gave us more information on this fear of the mosque. He said he has been reading and encountering the Cordoba initiative for years now as a political US organization that clearly states on their website, Cordobainitiative.org their intentions to create new benchmarks and standards for Muslims, Shariah and Muslim Nations by which they will try to change Islam into something new, modern, and meaningless as it will be ‘bidaa’ (innovation), the greatest sin in Islam.
Abdul Rashin further said that this Cordoba initiative with the ground zero center aims to fulfill for Muslims their much sought after Caliphate(Capital) which will be in the heart of New York, in this fake form. The word ‘Cordoba’ is very sensitive to Muslims, being the name of the last Caliphate and the name also of a fundamental Muslim achievement, mosque in then Andalusia, today Spain.
He and others we spoke to are very scared of this progressive development, both as a project that has since been operational and now with the creation of its headquarters, and view it as the coming of the Dajjal(Anti-Christ), who has been predicted in religious scripture and documents as being a powerful organization that will take over the religion in covert fashion and will become the sole authority on religious affairs, acting from a pretense of being a member and insider, to lead all adherents into perdition.
We visited the Cordobainitiative.org website and here is an interesting excerpt:
After two years of work, the Sharia Index Project’s working team of Sunni and Shi’a legal scholars from Morocco to Indonesia achieved consensus on a final structure on philosophy, methodology, and approach to providing the general public, opinion leaders, and state officials in both the Muslim and Western worlds with an Islamic legal benchmark for measuring “Islamicity” of a state.
In addition to producing The Shariah Index book, comprised of the essays and deliberations of these scholars, and which provides the Index’s theoretical foundation, Cordoba will present the Annual State of the Muslim World Index. This index, which involves a partnership with the Gallup Organization, polls people from 44 Muslim-majority nations (and members of the Organization of Islamic Conference) on how well their nations comply in practice with this Islamic legal benchmark of an Islamic State.
Imam Faisal, a founder of Cordoba is very prominent at the US Council On Foreign Relations, (CFR), and has been a main representative of successive US administrations to the Middle East.

Conspiracy theorists have similarly associated this Cordoba house with a larger “project Blue beam”, that supposedly operates with NASA, where strange illusions will be projected around the world in fulfillment of religious desires, so as to slowly control and eliminate all religions and unify the masses in “One religion”, and controllable fashion.
Also observed is the peculiar support from Mayor Bloomberg who recently, in July 2009 is remembered for his vehement opposition to New York City council’s request for Muslim holidays for the 10% Muslim student population of the state. Excerpt below:
Bloomberg: Schools Can’t Observe Muslim Holidays
NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s City Council has passed a nonbinding resolution asking the Education Department to observe two important Muslim holidays. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city is so diverse schools can’t observe every holiday.
The city has the nation’s largest school system. A 2008 study by Columbia University’s Teachers College estimates at least 10 percent of its 1.1 million students are Muslim.
The resolution was passed Tuesday. It asks the Bloomberg administration to observe the holidays in schools and for the state to require it by amending education law.
The holidays are Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha. Eid al-Adha celebrates the willingness of Ibrahim — known as Abraham to Christians and Jews — to sacrifice his son. It is the most important Islamic holiday. NY1 news
