I have to weigh in on the mosque. I know everyone has heard all they want to, and more, about the mosque / cultural center. Of course I agree with those who say the Muslims have a right to religious freedom. That is the end of my agreement. They actually don’t need to have another mosque in Manhatten. (There are already 17 mosques in Manhatten and over 100 in New York City.
Everyone has heard about the imam the wants to build the place. He is a supporter of Hezbollah and a staunch enemy of the Satan Americans. I previously warned my friends about Islam. Please check out this video for some insight. (Everything in it is fact-checked and there are references at the end.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib9rofXQl6w&feature=player_embedded
Then there is the interesting case of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox church. They cannot rebuild their church that was destroyed in the 9/11 attack. See an article about it here: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/17/ground-zero-church-archdiocese-says-officials-forgot/ If you listen to the Port Authority they say, “The church has the right to rebuild at their original site, and we will pay fair market value for the underground space beneath that building,” However, the church officials say just the opposite. The Port Authority has done nothing but throw up roadblocks to the church. Now here I go again - WTF?
Why would a city allow enemies of the United States build a tribute to the people that killed 3000 Americans? Trust me that is what this mosque is. Then they turn around and deny a church that was already there the right to rebuild. This is just another assault on the people of New York.
