    I have not done a fact check, just copy/paste from and e-mail.


    Cordoba House Mosque

    This is the most clearly stated, sensible, and historically accurate statement that
    I’ve read on this issue.

    Statement on the Proposed “Cordoba House” Mosque near Ground Zero by:
    Newt Gingrich

    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 over.

    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 a campaign.

    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 mosque. No self deception. No surrender.

    The time to take a stand is now - at this site on this issue.

    If, after reading this, you agree with it, please pass it on to others.

    This is the most clearly stated, sensible, and historically accurate statement that
    I’ve read on this issue.

    Why can’t we have a President as intelligent, educated, and patriotic as this former
    Speaker of the House?
