Mosque to be Built Near Ground Zero

 
 
Reply Wed 4 Aug, 2010 07:26 am
Much to the consternation of many, there is a plan to build a large mosque on a site near where the World Trade Center was destroyed. Some people were attempting to declare the building that is now in existence a landmark. If that had passed, the building would not be able to be modified. The lawsuit was denied, and the developers are going ahead with the plans.

Personally, I find the whole idea abhorrent. New York is a big city, and there are plenty of places where the group could build a mosque. It seems perverse, to put it mildly, for the Islamic group to pick that particular spot to build their mosque. If one would let his paranoia run rampant.........................well, I won't even get into THAT! Evil or Very Mad

What do you think? Is ground zero an appropriate place for a mosque?

It is a way for the Moslems to GLOAT over their military success of 9/11/1.

Its like the Moslems putting their flag where the World Trade Center was.

Its like planting a Japanese flag in Pearl Harbor.

@Intrepid,
Intrepid- Now I have, and that clip exactly mirrored my "paranoia". When I heard about the mosque, my first thoughts were how an army plants its flag on a battlefield after they have won a battle.

I don't live in N.Y., and I was never much of a "protester" when I was younger. But, if I did live there, I would be picketing, and raising a huge ruckus.

Thanks for pointing me to that clip!

I wrote my post before I read yours. We obviously had a similar reaction.

I don't live in the U.S. and it still angers me.

Insensitive probably doesn't begin to list the adjectives.

@OmSigDAVID,
David- Who said that they are not rebuilding? Like everything in NY, projects have to go through a plethora of committees and bureaucrats, before they finally decide to actually DO something. According to the following, the site is set to reopen in 2013.

from what I understand (not very much) the i's are dotted and the t's crossed; it's a done deal. protest can only agitate emotions, not change outcome. in a couple of years the mosque will be completed. It is now only a political hot button and I think we have enough of those already.

@dyslexia,
dys- I'm not so sure about that. The guys in the 1960's sure knew how to kick up a bit, and made some significant changes.

No; thay r just going to put up some junior version
of a low-rise building, allowing the Moslems to have the final word
against NYC having tall buildings. Thay shoud re-build the WTC,
but thay r not even considering that. Shameful.

I wonder whether the mosque will get bombed.

I hear that thay have not begun to raise funds for it.
Maybe it will never be built.

Still, with their oil money, thay can finance it with alien donations.

well, I suppose that when all legal/regulatory/constitutional criteria are met, I'm going to stick with basic civil rights rather than "I don't like the idea of it" thinking.

@dyslexia,
dys- Normally, I would agree with you. The problem is, that was happened at Ground Zero, was, shall we say, "abnormal"?

I am mightily pissed off about this.

I don't believe that it just happened that the mosque is being built there.

Snarling on the upper east side. Grrrrrrrrrr

@DrewDad,
A little storefront mosque that had been there for years, and plans to build a megamosque, are two entirely different things!
