Here's a link: http://edition.cnn.com/2010/US/05/07/new.york.ground.zero.mosque/index.html


The project is a collaboration between the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, and the plan is to build a mosque within two blocks of the Ground Zero site.

Supporters and campaigners say the planned complex aims to bring together the community and promote better understanding of Islam.

Protestors say it's an insult to those who'd lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks.

Opinions?

No matter its intentions, I'd say it will be burnt down by a redneck within 2 years of completion.

Personally, I think its in bad taste. That would be like building a museum to celebrate how intelligent and well thought out the Crusades were right on the edge of Jerusalem.
#3
I wonder what its chances of getting bombed are.

GEDIT: Normally I wouldn't be ok with this, but it looks like it's just gonna be like a YMCA for muslims. Not one of those taj-mahal lookin' things you usually think of when you think of mosques.

The difference is that the Crusades and the museum would be about capturing Jerusalem and "restoring Christian control."

The mosque is to bring people together in an attempt at peace between two very tense groups of people.

But as you said, some drunk asshole will take it upon himself to commit a hate crime.

Not insulting, but damn stupid.


I'm sure if they want peace, they could come up with much better ideas than building something that's just going to get burnt down or rednecks who have somehow acquired M60s will have themselves a massacre.

I think that it's been nearly a decade since 9/11 and people need to settle the hell down about it already.

Why is this even a problem? First of all, your thread title was an obvious bait and switch so you can g right tfo. Secondly, Islam is not what caused 9/11, brain washing and extremism is what caused 9/11. Muslims are not the problem, dangerously idiotic followers of a psychopath are.

There is no reason why a mosque shouldn't be built on a RANDOM FUCKING BLOCK in New York.

It's a place of Muslim worship. As church is to Christians and synagogue is to Jewish people.

You raise a good point though. If there was a mosque built ANYWHERE in Manhattan, it would cause a shitstorm.

People will inevitably be angry about this, but those people are stupid anyway so fuck 'em. As far as I'm concerned, a place of worship is a place of worship, be it a church, a synagogue, or a mosque. If you're gonna throw a shit fit about one of 'em, you better be throwing a shit fit about all of 'em. And if you're throwing a shit fit at all, grow up & let people have their freedom to worship.

I'm sorry if my command of the English language was misleading.

Also, I'm not saying Islam IS or WAS the problem.

Two blocks is no distance.

Also, the 9/11 bombers saw themselves as Muslim. We can try and call them whatever we wish, but they saw themselves as following their religion.

No that's bs, this is a bait and switch thread. your command of the English language has nothing to do with the difference between "for ground zero" and "near ground zero".

I know you aren't I wasn't referring to you

Many people in America are not capable of jogging 2 city blocks, it is therefore a solid distance.

It doesn't matter what they saw themselves as, their religion is not the reason for the attack. Nowhere in the Qur'an does it state that you should kill those who do not follow your beliefs. NOWHERE.

OK then, answer this: out of all the potential places they COULD have built this mosque, why did they have to choose that specific spot? There's a whole host of places they could have chose.


Your point about jogging city blocks is irrelevant as people can easily use cars, buses or the metro to get to places, as indeed most people will and do.

It does say you should try and change the place you live to your way of thinking. And you are allowed to defend your religion if you feel it's threatened.

People are willing to kill themselves in order to kill you, you can't say religion isn't a factor.

No doubt the text has been manipulated to an end though.
