This Mosque is apparently seen as a necessity and a right by a segment of our population. We should accept that and promote the project. Due to the
seemingly close proximity to the planned skyscrapers at “Ground Zero”, this mosque would better serve the entire community, and isn’t that the
official story, by being so large and close to the new skyscrapers that if ever there was another terrorist attack that the Mosque itself would be in
eminent danger of being damaged or destroyed as was “Building 7”. That potential damage would likely give pause to fundamentalist Islamic
terrorists. This could help protect the investments of “Silverstein Properties” the Port Authority and the entire neighborhood. Better yet, would
“Silverstein Properties” consider leasing space in the new towers to the Mosque group to incorporate a Mosque directly into this new symbol and
center of decadent Western capitalism? I think the “Silverstein” group might be convinced to make lemonade. Considering the size of the planned
buildings incorporating a relatively small “Islamic cultural center” might serve as Kryptonite to future fundamentalist terrorists. Just smart
Now that we’ve seen the reaction to only the threatened desecration of Muslim holy books, why are we not incorporating said books into every
structure being built in this country? Would Islamic fundamentalists risk destroying their own holy book? Kryptonite for everyone!
What is the Islamic punishment for burning/destroying/desecrating the Quran? Is it only a punishment for infidels or does it hold for Muslims? Use
superstition against the superstitious. Unless of course the entire Islamic indignation is just to render America defenseless against its’ own
constitution. You can’t have it both ways folks. The families still suffering nine years after the attacks have already been insulted by the Mosque
proposal and the protracted discourse. The insult will linger no matter what the outcome. It’s time to hold the proponents’ feet to the fire.
I’m not so sure they will carry through if we all back this and take practical advantage of it in any way possible.
Oh and while we’re at it, what is the punishment for using Mosque as a metaphor for a lemon? Perhaps just having your thread ignored.
