How do they do that by putting up a mosque? How is that inviting to non-Muslims, or bring people together when its obviously so controversial? It
seems to me that you wouldn't want to put this mosque in a place where Islamic terrorists didn't kill 3,000 people. That CLEARLY isn't bringing
people together, including Muslims!

How sad, evidently you didn’t read that the Mosque is only part of a multi-faith community center that is what the site is really about. This is why
the actual Jewish people who live in the area are supporting it while the Anti Defamation League is not.
The people who live locally understand it has the potential to benefit the entire community. The people who don’t live locally (The Anti-Defamation
League) don’t care about the benefits of things like low cost daycare a safe place where seniors of every nationality and persuasion can go to
during the day, and community leaders can host functions at, etc. because they only care about the politics of hate.
Nor does it seem you are aware, that while 19 Saudis are alleged to have carried out 9-11, that many Mosques around the nation, went out of their way
to reach out to their local communities in the aftermath of the event to welcome their non-Muslim neighbors to grieve with them, and show them what
their religion is really about.
By the way do you know what denomination Timothy McVeigh was? Should Oklahoma City prevent any churches of that denomination from being built there?
Maybe you imagine life is some game where everyone has to be divided up into neatly categorized teams and set to violently dominating and killing one
People who are predisposed to think that way are every bit as dangerous if not more so than the people and groups they are always claiming to feel
They aren’t just part of the problem, they are the problem.
The only thing that trumps violence, and the only thing that truly solves differences, is dialogue and communication, and the proposed Community
Outreach Center that incorporates the proposed Mosque is designed to promote communication.
Cowards try to whip people up into a frenzy to ‘protect’ them selves, brave men, they talk to those they have differences and issues with.
