I have to so some research on the project. It seems like the project is changing by the day. What I have read last is that a Mosque was going up two blocks away from the 911 site. The reason why this site is open is because the planes landing gear fell on this particular building. Also, a cultural and community centre is opening up right next to the site (something similar to what Toronto has on Spadina and Bloor for the Jewish fate I reckon).

Personally if I was judge and commisioner I'd just say out with the mosque and you can have your community centre. You are free to close off a floor of the centre for praying and build a mosque somewhere else. Thats just my twisted way of thinking I guess.

This is such a black and white issue that's being muddled by people with seperate agendas.

If I went in tomorrow and said I want to build a Christian Church I wonder if I'd receive any opposition from the dissenters. Yet, a building, done for the same purposes, is somehow off limits?

Is there such a fear of people who practice Islam that this is what we've come down to? It's insensitive? I'm having a really hard time understanding how exactly it's insensitive. It's not like Al-Qaeda is building its HQ there.

Have we really become that afraid of Islam and Muslims? What a sad reality I must live in then.

by starting shit, do you mean continuing to practice their religion in a free and democratic nation? or perhaps the notion that peaceful muslims want to make a statement that the city belongs to them too, and that they oppose radical fanaticisms?

Quote:
Daisy Khan, executive director of the Muslim society, described her vision of a center led by Muslims, but serving the community as a whole.

“It will have a real community feel, to celebrate the pluralism in the United States, as well as in the Islamic religion,” Khan said. “It will also serve as a major platform for amplifying the silent voice of the majority of Muslims who have nothing to do with extremist ideologies. It will counter the extremist momentum.”

no, they were part of a fanatic branch of the muslim religion. Nothing to do with the people that are going be part of that mosque. Al-Qaeda and moderate muslims have nothing in common. There are already a lot of mosques in the city of New York and near the place were the towers were.

Nice of you to lump all Muslims in with the group of assholes who were responsible ... again, I am offended. And I don't get easily offended.

I'm not too sure how old you are, so I'll try and cut you some slack, but you are generalizing and I suggest you stop.

Thanks.

Jon Stewart did a great job of skewering FOX for getting hysterical over the guy (that they didn't bother naming or showing) financing the whole thing, and who just happens to be a respected shareholder of FOX.
