Pro-Jihad Media Bans the Term “Ground Zero Mosque”

Laura: The AP propagandists and shills for the stealth jihadist gang behind the ground zero islamic supremacist mega mosque, are giving their marching orders to members of the press to not refer to it by the term “ground zero mosque”. So we patriotic Americans must always refer to this obscenity being inflicted upon us by what it is, the ground zero mosque. Also what bothers me is that even people who oppose the ground zero mosque say there is no legal grounds to stop it, that it is their constitutional right. I reject that argument. If the ground zero mosque is tied to terror regimes and groups financially or otherwise, and we know that it is, then we indeed have the legal right to stop it, in fact the government has an obligation to do so.

MEDIA MASKS MOSQUE: AP BANS “GROUND ZERO MOSQUE”

Pam Geller, Atlas Shrugs

The media has its marching orders. No “Ground Zero Mosque” when referring to the Ground Zero mosque.

AP DIRECTIVE ISSUED TODAY:

AP Standards Center issues staff advisory on covering New York City mosque

Associated Press Deputy Managing Editor for Standards and Production Tom Kent sent the following note to the staff about covering the New York City mosque story:

Aug. 19, 2010

Colleagues,

Here is some guidance on covering the NYC mosque story, with assists from Chad Roedemeier in the NYC bureau and Terry Hunt in Washington:

1. We should continue to avoid the phrase “ground zero mosque” or “mosque at ground zero” on all platforms. (We’ve very rarely used this wording, except in slugs, though we sometimes see other news sources using the term.) The site of the proposed Islamic center and mosque is not at ground zero, but two blocks away in a busy commercial area. We should continue to say it’s “near” ground zero, or two blocks away.

WE WILL CHANGE OUR SLUG ON THIS STORY LATER TODAY from “BC-Ground Zero Mosque” to “BC-NYC Mosque.”

In short headlines, some ways to refer to the project include:

_ mosque 2 blocks from WTC site

_ Muslim (or Islamic) center near WTC site

_ mosque near ground zero

_ mosque near WTC site

We can refer to the project as a mosque, or as a proposed Islamic center that includes a mosque.

It may be useful in some stories to note that Muslim prayer services have been held since 2009 in the building that the new project will replace. The proposal is to create a new, larger Islamic community center that would include a mosque, a swimming pool, gym, auditorium and other facilities. Continue

    Palin called it the “9/11 mosque”.

    Works for me. Or how about the “bloody mosque”.

  2. Laura says:

    Either of those terms are good.

  3. Andy Lewis says:

    Mosque of the Red Death

    Death to America Mosque

    How about No Mosque

    “…The plane penetrated through the tower, and part of the plane’s landing gear and fuselage came out the north side of the tower and crashed through the roof of 45–47 Park Place, and through two of its floors. The plane parts destroyed three floor beams, and severely compromised the building’s internal structure.

    The specific location of the planned facility, so close to the World Trade Center “where a piece of the wreckage fell,” was a primary selling point for the Muslims who bought the building. …”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordoba_House includes links to published citations as well as the most comprehensive coverage of ALL aspects of the Park51/Cordoba House project.

    I call it the “Scam-and-Spin” swimming pool…using a mosque to deflect ALL criticism.

    Bird you got is nailed, it’s not the mosque it’s the trophy.

  8. Birdalone says:

    yamit82: here is the OTHER, really BIG pail of nails, the part of this story that almost everyone has been missing, that this is amateur hour in Manhattan real estate development of anything bigger than replacing your refrigerator :)

    “…The Cordoba Initiative’s entire political outreach, meanwhile, appears to have been a call to Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer earlier this year, who suggested they visit Community Board 1 merely to measure support. The step was unnecessary – they can build on the site as of right – and was, in retrospect, a mistake.

    The hearing gave the impression nationally that there was some kind of government approval required, when in fact it wasn’t the case. …”

    [And that is the truth: zoning is of right. The only thing Politico left out was they still have to buy Con Edison's half of the building, which is a mishegoss all on it's own]
    http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2010/08/18/20100818new-york-mosque-a-ling-shot-politico.html

    If Pamela Gellar (and Newt) had stayed out of this, Manhattan would have killed it by now solely through the usual withering criticism. Instead, it became all about the First Amendment exercise of religion, and a national hot potato.

    Geller is identified with the conservative right and Palin had to stick her boobs into the mix so Newt could hardly stay aloof.

    Instead of a local zoning and any moral protest as to the propriety of the building It’s become a political partisan issue and whether some wish to admit it or not an anti Muslim crusade.

    It should to my mind be a non sectarian political issue but defiantly an anti Muslim issue. The problem here is the dishonestly of most of the anti Muslim group. They refuse to admit their opposition is anti Muslim and all are identified with the political right. They still hold to the urban myth and PC mantra of good Muslims Bad Muslims. Most are hypocrites. They will build the swimming pool and mosque in the end.

    There ought to be an edifice built that refects pure Americanism. What can better be associated with the the spirit of our religious institutions and our family values than the construction of a strip joint.
