For months the Brooklyn Tea Party and members of the Sheepshead Bay community have worked diligently to get local politicians to address their concerns about the building of a mosque at 2812 Voorhies Avenue - the Voorhies mosque. We have written letters to Steven Cymbrowitz, Helene Weinstein, Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, Anthony Weiner, Marty Golden, Alan Maisel, Marty Markowitz, and Carl Kruger. Each representative received a certified letter with over thirteen hundred signatures of local residents affixed.
Within these letters we told them that the Anti-Defamation League claimed that the developer of the Mosque, the Muslim American Society (MAS), “has a troubling history of associations with radical organizations and individuals that promote terrorism, anti-Semitism and reject Israel's right to exist.” The ADL called MAS “the leading American Muslim organization organizing anti-Israel activity in the U.S.”[i] We provided over eighty pages of evidence documenting these claims.[ii] Recently the Staten Island Roman Catholic Church’s board, which includes Archbishop Timothy Dolan, decided not to sell property the MAS wanted to turn into a mosque over this very same documentation.[iii]
The Brooklyn TEA Party knows why none of the above mentioned politicians responded to our concerns about the MAS’ Voorhies mosque. They are cowards. They are politicians rather than leaders. They do not want to offend a single person, let alone a group. Afraid of being called racist, they will not say anything culturist.[iv] They refuse to utter more than the BS PC clichés that are rotting our nation. They are angry about nothing. They much prefer photo opportunities when launching nice sounding yet costly programs to taking stances. They are the very reason that the TEA Party is necessary.
