    Rebuild The Church At Ground Zero, Not a Mosque
    ::
       State Parties -> America's Party of New York



    Brookhaven, NY- George Demos, the Conservative Republican Candidate for Congress in New York's First Congressional District issued the following statement on the proposed mosque amid the sacred ruins of Ground Zero and expressed outrage at our own government's refusal to rebuild the only house of worship that was actually destroyed on September 11th- the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.

    Nine years later, church at Ground Zero still not rebuilt, but mad rush to build Islamic supremacist mega-mosque



    St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church stood in the shadow of the World Trade Center and was crushed under the rubble when the towers collapsed on September 11, 2001. Almost nine years later it has still not been rebuilt; the rebuilding project is mired in bureaucracy, with New York City officials being uncooperative and throwing up roadblock after roadblock.

    The contrast is telling with the mad rush on the part of New York City officials to build the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero, sweeping aside calls to landmark the Burlington Coat Factory building, into which crashed the landing gear from one of the 9/11 planes, as a war memorial -- despite the fact that buildings of far lesser historical significance have been designated as landmarks in New York.

    From a March 2009 New York Times story on the church (where, incidentally, my mother was baptized):

    Last July, the Port Authority and the Greek Orthodox Church announced a tentative plan to rebuild the church just east of its original site, at Liberty and Greenwich Streets. The authority agreed to provide the church with land for a 24,000-square-foot house of worship, far larger than the original, and $20 million. Since the church would be built in a park over the bomb-screening center, the authority also agreed to pay up to $40 million for a blast-proof platform and foundation.

    In recent negotiations, the authority cut the size of the church slightly and told church officials that its dome could not rise higher than the trade center memorial.

    But a thirteen-story mega-mosque? Fine!

    Unable to rebuild their church, the St. Nicholas congregation has held St. Nicholas Day services in a tent at Ground Zero.

    But a thirteen-story Islamic supremacist mega-mosque headed by a pro-Sharia, anti-free speech imam who refuses to denounce Hamas and has a history of duplicitous statements? Let's clear aside every hurdle, tar opponents as bigots, and get that baby built!

    Port Authority Lies about Ground Zero Church
    Chris Ward
    Port Authority Director
    Chris Ward Port Authority Director
    Brookhaven, NY- George Demos, the Conservative Republican Candidate for Congress in New York's First Congressional District, responded to the Port Authority's dishonest statement in the Wall Street Journal about the Demos campaign's call to rebuild the Ground Zero Church, and called on Tim Bishop to break his silence on the Mosque and Church.

    George Demos said:
    "Our campaign recently called it an outrage that the Port Authority is blocking the rebuilding of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church destroyed on September 11 by Islamic extremists while our own government facilitates a trophy Mosque nearby.

    After our campaign's national media interviews and extensive press coverage, the Port Authority finally responded to the Wall Street Journal that "the Church has the right to rebuild at any time."

    How disgraceful, disingenuous, and disrespectful for Port Authority Director Chris Ward to instruct his spokesman to lie to the American people.
    The Port Authority demanded that the Church relinquish its deed to the property which the Church rightfully refused in the absence of a binding contract to rebuild in another location. Without the Church's permission, the Port Authority nevertheless excavated the land where the Church stood. For the last year, the Port Authority has refused to meet with Church officials and is now reneging on its commitment to rebuild the Church.
    Our own Congressman Tim Bishop refuses to listen to his constituents on this issue of national significance and is afraid to comment on the Mosque or the Church, other than to cavalierly dismiss the matter as a "local land use issue." Even [Alleged] President Obama disagreed with Tim Bishop's assessment when he offered his own imprudent comments on Friday.
    As our Congressman, I will never be afraid to take a stand on issues of national importance and I will always fight hard to hold our government accountable for its actions. We may tolerate religious differences, but we will not tolerate our Judeo-Christian values being disrespected by our own government.
