But again, the issue isn't sensitive except to people who think we're at war with Islam. We're not.

Horse Manure.

I know a lot of folks who head down to ground zero to mourn.

You can say it is not a stick in the eye to have them go down there and face a mosque in what would have been the shadow of the tomb that their loved ones would be. Many of the victims still are not identified even by the slightest trace.

It isn't about a war with Islam. It is about common decency.

Putting a mosque at ground zero would be like putting a tribute to the german soldier at a holocaust site. Just as most German soldiers were not evil persons, neither are most Muslims, still it would be insensitive and just flat out wrong.

No one is arguing with the building of a mosque, which would clearly be the case with your sophomoric claim. It is the impact on the folks grieving. It is unnecessary and it is just flat out inconsiderate to the point of cruelty.

Perhaps you can say constitutionally it should be built, that may be the case. SHould it be allowed? No.

There is no reason for it, except as an inflammatory move. It is not a Muslim area, not of any significance to Muslims except as a death site of a few and many others.

It is clearly inappropriate.

Is is pathetic to claim this is an attack on Islam and were I to believe it possible I would say you should be ashamed of yourself.
