The ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee accused the imam behind the mosque project near Ground Zero of arm-twisting and "blackmailing" to push Park51 through.

"To me, it's almost as if he's blackmailing and threatening the United States that somehow if the mosque is not approved or people speak out against his mosque, you have to worry about being attacked by Islamic terrorists," Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on Fox Business Network on Friday.

King said that the Islamic center was being "put their to make a statement, not to build bridges, but to make a statement."

"We don't have to prove ourselves to anyone and certainly don't have to measure up to some standard set by an imam who said that the U.S. was a co-conspirator of 9/11," King said.

Damn skippy............

I would like to see Gov Christie appoint or retain the 6 members on the NY Port Authority Board that favor revoking the permit issued for building this mosque. That would kill the deal. Rather strange that the Greek Orthodox Church was denied a permit one block away. Sure looks like the Board, Obama and Bloomy are in bed with the Muzzies; they are a bunch of hypocrites.

Correction; The only church there ON 9/11. Don't forget they were there BEFORE the events took place. They want to RE-build....
