As far as I'm concerned, because it is "land of the free" and all, people who will complain at the construction of a mosque or a community center
(whatever you may call it) due to simply disliking Islam, are to be ignored!
People who complain at mosques around WTC should not be ignored since the whole idea is OFFENSIVE, rightly so due to 9/11 disaster, especially if
you're going to promote the idea that Islam is a tolerant religion!
How hard can it be?
Insisting on building the mosque over there is not being tolerant, thoughtful or peacful, it is downright being uncaring for people's feelings and
it DOES NOT matter if these feelings are morally unjustified in anyone's opinion
as this disaster DID happen, lots of people died, and people DO
NOT want to see a mosque over there.
I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible for you people to understand what I mean. Please try to understand I'm thinking this over in the most
ballanced way there is and have a minimal understanding for other people's opinions.
If I was a Muslim, I would not want to see a synagouge near beirut's bombed parts that will try to change my mind about Judaism
If I was a Jew, I would not want to see a national socialist HQ near a holocaust museum that will try to change my mind about National
If I was a christian, I would not like to see a mosque near WTC that will try to change my mind about Islam
