There’s a Mosque at the Pentagon, Oh My!


    For all the anti-Muslim bigots out there – Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and the whole crazy lot of ’em – read this and enjoy as their heads explode from cognitive dissonance overload!

    Navy imam Chaplain Abuhena M. Saifulislam lifted his voice to God as he called to prayer more than 100 Department of Defense employees Monday at a celebration of Ramadan at the Pentagon.

    God is most great, sang the lieutenant commander and Islamic leader, in Arabic, as iftar – the end of the daily fast began.

    Uniformed military personnel, civilians and family members faced Mecca and knelt on adorned prayer rugs chanting their prayers in quiet invocation to Allah.

    Wait, a mosque? Inside the Pentagon? Which was attacked on 9/11? That’s ok, but a cultural center on private property, several blocks from “Ground Zero” in NY City, must be “refudiated?” Yeah, right, gotcha! As Salon Magazine snarkily writes, “Yes, Muslims have infiltrated the Pentagon for their nefarious, prayerful purposes — daring to practice their religion inside the building where 184 people died on Sept. 11, 2001. They haven’t even had the sensitivity to move two blocks, let alone a mile, away from that sacred site.”

    Commence exploding Islamophobe heads!

    P.S. Of course, the Pentagon is located in commie-controlled Arlington, after all, so what else would you expect? Heh.
