Video of meeting posted in 5 parts: Part 1 of 5 begins with the Commission Chairman, Robert B. Tierney and a staff member read a description of the building. The first speakers represented the mosque and opposed landmark status. However , the Cordoba Initiative reps quickly digressed to a discussion of the religious reasons for the building rather than the landmark status.   Then those who support the landmark status for the building began to speak in response to both, landmark  and mosque.


Part 2 of 5 continues with speakers who are for and against the landmark status amongst these (in Part 2) are Robert Spencer (more  from Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch ) and Rick Lazio. However, the Cordoba Initiative had da’wha on the agenda so it was a meeting that had a very difficult time staying on topic which was, landmark status!


Part 3 of 5 ( in switching tapes, lost name of woman speaking at the top) Speakers continue from both sides. At approx. 15:00 there are three speakers in support of landmark status who are very compelling. Also, in Part  3, the lunatic commie heckler is finally removed from the auditorium (that was over an hour in to the Public Hearing) Very unfortunate that the police permitted him to interrupt the speakers for so long; speakers who supported landmark status.


Part 4 of 5: July 13, 2010,Hunter College. The NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission held a Public Hearing on the landmark designation proposal for 45-47 Park Place (aka The Ground Zero Mosque). The speakers continue from both sides. There were even more speakers who lost family on 9-11 and spoke in support of the landmark status.


Part 5 of 5: Even as the meeting wound down, and the press was thinning out, there were still quite a few speakers, some of whom were very articulate as they pressed for landmark status. The press that remained focused so closely on the pro-mosque speakers, they manage to miss some very compelling speakers from the pro-landmark side.


UPDATE: According the the NY Daily News, the name Cordoba Initiative will disappear.  Seems El Gamal and company, as they held their quick confab off on the side  of the audience (post Commission ), have grown weary of hearing the historical, factual meaning of Cordoba . So let’s put some “Lipstick on the pig”! The new name for Cordoba House  is now the rather BLAND: Park51.  (Read more HERE on this obfuscation from Atlas Shrugs)

  2. Pitiful no camera caught the four men in the Cordoba group laughing their heads off the entire time the last gentleman spoke. As he recounted his horror watching a plane hit one of the Twin Towers, these men watched him, listened and LAUGHED openly. Where were the cameras then?! Where??? On the other hand, our balanced and fair members of the press had a field day, kneeling before the obnoxious grease bag–who ceaselessly heckled the majority of us as bigots, KKK and rascists,– taking no less than hundreds of shots of this loud mouth with signs that accused us of scapegoating. We are not bigots. We are doing due diligence, and we are pleading for responsibility from our leaders to conduct an investigation on the funding behind the CI and their Ground Zero Mosque.
