"We need this Islamic center to preach love and respect in contrast to those that preach hate and destruction"
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!

While many of us believe and want to believe that the United States Constitution was written for “We the People” and remains or at least should as an enduring testament to hard won freedoms and principles we all hold as lofty and noble, the truth is not quite so kind.
Personally I could care less that the Census is mandated in the Constitution.

Hey proto, remember this thread?
Broken down by party affiliation, 54 percent of Democrats oppose the plans while 82 percent of Republicans disapprove. Meanwhile, 70 percent of independents said they are against the proposal.
The poll also showed opposition did not vary widely by age.
"Support for the controversial project is slightly higher among younger Americans than older Americans, but even among those under the age of 50, six in ten oppose the plan," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

Anyone buying the propaganda bullcrap of that being offensive is downright racist. Maybe you should take a look at this map of "jesusland" : en.wikipedia.org...

If Mayor Michael Bloomberg ever decides to stop buying his way around New York City's term-limit law, he'd be a perfect fit at the State Department.
In "Eid in America," the State Department also wisely left out imam Abdul-Malik's 2004 promise of Islamic supremacy in America. He made it in a Friday sermon of the sort that one typically hears at "moderate" mosques like Dar al-Hijra:
Alhamdullilah [Praise to Allah] and we will live, will see the day when Islam, by the grace of Allah, will become the dominant way of life. . . . I'm telling you don't take it for granted because Allah is increasing this deen [religion] in your lifetime. Alhamdullilah that soon, soon . . . before Allah closes our eyes for the last time, you will see Islam move from being the second largest religion in America -- that's where we are now -- to being the first religion in America.
"Outreach," you'll be pleased to learn, is just Abdul-Malik's day job. He is also a director of the National Association of Muslim Chaplains (NAMC). As journalist Paul Sperry recounts in his important book, Infiltration, NAMC's founder, Warith Deen Umar, is best known for his glorification of the 9/11 hijackers: "Even Muslims who say they are against terrorism secretly admire and applaud" them.
Dar al-Hijra was established in 1991. Not so coincidentally, that is the same year American leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood wrote an internal memorandum to their global headquarters in Egypt, explaining that they saw their work in the United States as a "grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within." Echoing imam Abdul-Malik, the Brotherhood said its tactic would be "sabotage."
The company has also been developing an Islamic finance portal, which Mr Linnington said would be helped by having more people on the ground building relationships.
“Particularly since the meltdown of the western capitalist system, there has been an increasingly large focus on the virtues of Islamic finance,” he said. “Today, there is no one single provider of information that caters to the Islamic finance market. So by Bloomberg being here, we are in the process of building out an Islamic finance product. We are very confident that we can build a product that meets the needs of the market right now.”
