Stop The Manhattan Mosque – It’s In A Muslim Zero Tolerance Area

by | 31st, July 2010

PLANS to construct an Islamic community centre close to near ground zero have fallen foul of the Anti Defamation League. It’s freedom, for sure, But it is a freedom that might cause offence. Freedom means you have the right to be offended. As the report on Ground Zero (Zero Intolerance) ¬†goes:

Proponents of the Islamic Center may have every right to build at this site, and may even have chosen the site to send a positive message about Islam. The bigotry some have expressed in attacking them is unfair, and wrong. But ultimately this is not a question of rights, but a question of what is right. In our judgment, building an Islamic Center in the shadow of the World Trade Center will cause some victims more pain –unnecessarily — and that is not right.

So. All Muslims caused 9/11? How close to Ground Zero is it ok to build a Muslim community centre? We need guidance, people. Is it one mile? Ten miles? 1,000 miles?
