    Okay, for one thing, it isn't a mosque. Second, it isn't at Ground Zero. It's a cultural centre being built with the intention of bettering inter-faith and national relations. It is also several blocks away from Ground Zero itself.
    To quote a British Journalist on the matter: "To give an example of how 'distance' works this side of the atlantic, I once took a dump in a pub two minutes walk from Buckingham Palace. I was not immediately arrested and charged with crapping on the Queen's pillow."
    Just because it is near Ground Zero, doesn't mean it actually is there. Fucking ignorance is all this is.

    Well, considering no one is actually building a mosque at ground zero (It is in fact, a large community center with a mosque on one of the floors.) I see no issue. Even if it was at ground zero, I couldn't care less. Not every Muslim is part of Al Qaeda, in fact, plenty of muslims were killed in 9/11. Both in the towers and as first responders.

    Imagine if a church was built near a place that had an abortion clinic bombing by an extremist christian (using this example because bombings like this have happened before.) Would there be outrage in the community because of the clinic being destroyed? Some how, I don't think it would get nearly as much of a reaction from Americans.

    For the record, remember the Pearl Harbour bombing? Nobody has ever had an issue with the Japanese cultural center in Honolulu. Nobody needs to make an issue of this either.

    I believe that the Islamic Center should be built (and all of the permits have already been drawn up and it will be built as of a few months ago). It is the 1st Amendment rights of Muslims in NYC to both practice their religion and practice it wherever they please.

    Personaly i think that if America allowed a mosque to be built near ground zero it would show that they aren't always gun-ho rednecks all the time when it comes to islam and specificaly 9/11. Hopefuly it would be because the American goverment and people realize that islam is really a peaceful religion and when it comes to Jihad al-qaeda and other "islamic" terrorists were breaking all the rules of a true holy and just jihad (not to harm innocents, not to damage property (BUILDINGS) etc...) which makes them murderers and enemies of every true muslim so no diferent to the IRA and definetly not muslim or anything to do with a real Mosque.

    instead of turning ground zero into a mosque, why don't we turn a few mosque's into ground zero?

    I think it just goes to show how racist the country still is, any apparent progress is superficial. Hundreds of Muslims died that day too so maybe its fitting that a mosque is built there.

    I think that we should build exactly what was there before. If you want to memorialize those who died that day, don't do something that targets one specific religion. Now, if a Muslim Mosque wanted to rent or purchase space in the new buildings, they should be free to do with their space what they want.

    I know that we're all supposed to be for "Religious tolerance" and whatnot, but how do you think the Japanese would feel if 9 years after we dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki we decided to build a Huge shopping mall with a Church on one of the floors . . . .
    And yes before some smart ass says it i know that wouldnt be possible due to the long term effects of the bomb i just meant the principle of it.
    I'm not for the Mosque being built and I'm really not against it. All I'm saying is that it's kinda insensitive.

    20050818 how about a nice cup of shut the fuck up


    FOR THE RECORD - this is not meant at any one - just meant to make a point and also make you smile - it does not matter what you think. Everyone is allowed to have their own view and opinion because we are all different and 911 affected us all differently. I lost a very close family friend that day and I have my own thoughts about it all. If your opinion was worth more than a dirty sock under the bed , you would be making policy with it or giving your analytical advice on CNN instead of arguing online - and we all know what internet arguments are like , right ?

    As a Soldier currently fighting the war on terrorism (With my bare hands), with 9/11 being one of my primary reasons for joining, I can say I hold absolutely no grudge against Islam or any Muslim (And I've deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan). If the Taliban wanted to build a training center in that area, I would take offense. But being the fact that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda aren't truly Muslim as the first poster points out, I see no problem with this it all. I think any one who has a problem with this being built near the ground zero site is ignorant and biased for the wrong reasons.

    It's like the army banning the new Medal of Honor game at all army bases because you can play as the taliban in the campaign and multiplayer. And the guy that was going to burn the Qu'ran is just plain stupid. You're talking about burning something that is considered sacred to muslims. Burning it isn't going to help the situation in Iraq. That would have just pissed them off even more. But back to the matter at hand. I don't see the big deal. It's near ground zero (not at it) so why is America bitching about it? I think people watch Fox news wayyyy to much. That includes Glenn Beck, The o'Reily Factor, and Fox and Friends. Because my next door neighbor was bitching at me because I said fox news and glenn beck is innacurate and overated. He said that he was talking about Obama and "uncovering" conspiracies and said that he said that he had a phone sitting next to him and said for the white house to call him and tell him he's wrong. And nobody called. So what? That doesn't prove anything. If he was supposedly uncovering the obama's and the white house's "secret plan" they would have already "taken care of him". Right?

    I JUST HATE EVERY FUCKIN THING ABOUT THESE MUSLIM AROGANT PEOPLE. THINKING THAT THEY ARE THE ONES AND EVERYONE MUST LISTEN TO THEM OR THEY WILL PRESS CHARGES AGAINST YOU FOR BEING RACIST. NONE OF YOU(MUSLIMS) HAVE AN OPINION WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RELIGION OR THINGS LIKE THIS MOSQUE. YOU JUST WANT IT TO BE BUILD TO PROVE HOW FUCKIN GOOD AND STRONG YOU ARE AND HOW WE ARE AFRAID NOT TO BUILD IT BECAUSE SOME FUCKIN CUNT WILL CALL AND SAY I WILL PLANT THE BOMB IN THERE AND THERE OR I WILL COME WITH A BOMB DEEP IN MY WASHED WITH MY HAND ASSHOLE AND BLOW U UP BECAUSE IT IS NOT MY OPINION( EVENTHOUGH I LIVE 100s OF MILES AWAY) BUT HOW DARE YOU TO SAY NO TO MUSLIM COMUNITY AND THEIR MOSQUE. FUCK IT, VIVA FRANCE! BAN BURKAS, HIDE IN YOUR FUCKIN HOME, NOT ON THE STREET WITH FEARED KIDS AROUND. EVEN I LEFT A TRAIN FEW TIMES BECAUSE OF FUCKED SUSPICIOUS MUSLIM. SO GIVES US YOUR OPINION BUT NOT YOUR RELIGION FOR FUCK SAKE! FED UP
