Ghouse, Geller on Fox's Hannity show

Sean Hannity Show: Pamela Geller Debates Michael Ghouse (Muslim American Congress) 911 Mega Mosque

From the controversial news category comes the story about a giant 13 story Islamic Mosque within steps of Ground Zero in New York City. Sean was joined by Pamela Geller and Mike Ghouse to discuss this issue.

Geller, Executive Director of theFreedom Defense Initiative and Mike Ghouse, the Director of the World Muslim Congress, engaged in a huge debate. “What can be more insulting than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack,” argued Geller, “it’s time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic supremacist.” Ghouse offered, “Everyone is crying out loud for Muslims to create positive change but this building will do just that – create a voice for the moderate Muslim.”

“This mosque is scheduled to open September 11th, 2011 and will apparently have a swimming pool in the building damaged by the fu selage of one of the planes that destroyed the World Trade Center,” noted Hannity. It’s a difficult line between freedom and sensitivity to that sacred area. For more information, visit the Daily News.

Draft Notes:

As Americans we uphold, protect, defend and celebrate the values enshrined in our constitution. Our faith reinforces the creed of "One Nation under God, with liberty and justice for all."

Unity Day USA is about coming together as Americans and expressing our innate desire to rededicate our pledge; one nation under god with liberty and justice for all.

Unity Day USA is about coming together as Americans to appreciate, respect and honor the God given uniqueness to each one of the 297,018,658 of us.

Unity Day USA is born to express that each one of the 297,018,658 of us, are part of the mosaic that America is, each one of us needs to remain connected with the other to make us one nation under God.

Unity Day USA is born out of the great tragedy and enormous suffering that Tuesday, September 11, 2001 brought to all of us, and it is from this day forward, that we, the Muslims of America pledge to continue to foster healing and unity.

We are blessed in this endeavor with the support from people of all faiths. On this Unity Day USA, the People of every faith, race, ethnicity, culture, and every background has accepted our invitation to join us in sharing the power of prayer for peace, healing, unity and security of our country.

Our faith is deed based, and as with all silent majorities, we follow our faith and strive to be the best we can. For the overwhelming silent majority of Muslims, Islam is about doing good things for mankind. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) once explained, if you plant and nurture a tree, it will give fruit to all; that is charity. He told his associates to consider this as a good deed; doing things that will benefit the mankind. Indeed, this is the same message, every messenger of God in every faith has reiterated.

World Muslim Congress is born to represent the silent majority of Muslims, Every one is invited to become a member and participate in doing good things for the community at large. Insha Allah, as an organization, every good we do, we will do it for America and for every American. The information is available in the tab "about us" on this website and will soon be on the website

God bless the USA

The following is information about the Cordoba House project, for your national television broadcast, as was agreed to be given to you by Imam Feisal over the phone.

The need for Córdoba House is apparent in the continuing ignorance surrounding Islam and its people, within both the Muslim and non-Muslim communities. The vision for Córdoba House is to establish a Muslim center that will, through dialogue, culture and arts and educational programs, represent the diversity of opinions, beliefs and schools of thought within the Muslim community while also serving as a Muslim paradigm for intra-faith and interfaith understanding.

This Center will be distinguished by its unique approach to interfaith and intercommunity education: the use of arts and other Muslim cultural production as the very vehicle for bridge building.

The Córdoba House will offer a multitude of mediums to experience the Muslim culture in relation to Abrahamic faiths including: theological discussion, philosophical inquiry, art exhibitions, and culture & arts festivals.

Vision for Córdoba House:

Growth in the American Muslim community and the public awareness and perception of Muslims presents several pressing needs. The center will furnish the community’s needs by being:
• Pluralistic: Welcome and promote all perspectives to participate in high level intra-faith/inter-faith discussion regarding identity, spirituality, theology, human values and religious principles.

• Expressive: Foster an American face of Islam that celebrates its multiple roots and rich heritage by showcasing and sharing culture, art and intellectual production within the Islamic tradition.

• Educational & Empowering: Promote Islamic values as compassion, generosity, respect and tolerance. Share knowledge and wisdom through educational programs.

• Dynamic: Establish a center where dignitaries, eminent scholars, thinkers and emerging Muslim leaders are able to address and build dialogue within the broader American community.

Córdoba House will adopt multiple strategic programming areas to achieve its overall objectives:

1. Culture and Arts
2. Intra-faith / Interfaith
3. Communications and Media
4. Education

To provide maximum immersion in the rich diversity Islam and Muslim culture, this model center will include a souk / bazaar, library, media & research center, lecture & study hall, theatre, auditorium, banquet hall, prayer space, culinary class area, an art exhibition space, bookstores, and restaurants.

The first flagship Cordoba House will be built in the heart of New York City. An organizational model will be created for satellite centers around the globe. These models will be replicable and can conform to local intra and interfaith needs. Although it is not possible for any center to single handedly meet the needs of all interested individuals, if it is effective and well-received, others may create similar institutions.


  1. This is what I feel about Mr. Mike Ghouse, He is amoung the few that hired by the Islamic supremist paid by Islami terorist group to promot positive attitude to ward others. Building a Masque in downtown manhattan and opening on september 11, 2011, it is more insulting than 9/11. What is wrong with our Politician, how could they even allow to bring this kind of issue. Only question remain is the mayor of NY city sold out to this islamic fanatic/extremist that allowing to building a masque near World Trade Center. He can not see that this is a cold war against america, western vs Islam.

  2. Sorry mike could not read your full coment, but is good you talk about educational thing, this education would be on what ground, produceing more terorist, force to wear veil, hide there face, how to store bome or material to make bome undernith the swiming pool, Is not it that islam forbid to take off cloth in public or this only apply to women, men can do what ever he wants, Look I respect your view, but could not agree that building a masque near or around wold trade center and islam has nothing to give to the world except barbarism. You can question others about there religion but you can not question Quran, One of the great lord said this, do not belive, because of someone told you, do not belive, because it is your tradition, do not belive, because your ancestor told you. He said come, look, see, hear, judge, feel it than you accept it. Do not belive it, because I told you, do not belive it, because it is writen, do not belive because it is there, you must decide right or wrong (Buddha). Where is Quran you are not allow to question, is that right? If the man can have freedom, why the woman can not ? Mike, ask your self the thing you doing is that right? Defend the truth, defend the freedom, defend the democracy, please do not be hipocrite like Mr. Mahathma Gandhi. If you speak speak for good. Do not defend some thing that is wrong. I have not hear you saying Saudi Arabia should allow to bulid a Curch, Jewish Temple, Hindu Temple, Buddhist Temple Etc.
