from Politico:

... "'Why would you want, as an imam, why would you want to put a cultural center right there if it’s meant to heal people when right away it’s caused such a national uproar? That is in and of itself evident of the fact that they’re not interested in healing or bringing people together. They’re interested in posing their view. That’s what so insensitive about it.'"

Not just "posing" but imposing their view.

When you factor in all the clues, I don't know how it could possibly be any clearer. Such as:

* Their completely callous disregard of the 9/11 victims families and all those highly offended by it, while claiming the mosques purpose would be for "healing".
* Their plan to name it Cordoba Institute.
* Their continued "I could care less" attitude even after seeing all the opposition and uproar from Americans.
* Their immediate rejection of land further away to build on.
* Their plan to dedicate the mosque WHEN?! None other than September 11, 2011.

And then there's also the little thing that they refuse to name their financial sources for this mosque (even though it isn't like we don't already know the Saudi have their hands in it there somewhere at the very least). Qatar is supposed to be a backer also.

Did I leave anything out? My conclusion is that anyone believing it isn't a "victory monument" mosque either doesn't know much about the subject, or they are just plain retarded.

A bit of history about Cordoba for the unknowing: To radical
Muslims of today, few symbols are as resonant as the downfall of the Caliphate at Cordoba, Al-Andalus. In the same way that Americans remember their defeat at the Alamo and use its name as a rallying cry in battle; Cordoba, Al-Andalus is a rallying cry for Islam."

FREEDOM OF RELIGION It is their right to practice any religion they chose and assembly anywhere they want. Many muslims lost their lives in the bombings. Do their lives not matter? What about their families? Do we not allow churches near the okalahoma site? Timothy Mcviegh was bombing to avenge the raid on the branch davidians. I am a christian and feel what happen was wrong but if we change the rules for them then what the terrorist set out to do they did. They want us to question our faith our country and our constitution. Vengence is mine sayth the lord. Right now is a time when gives us a chance to forgive as he has forgiven us. Easy to say but hardwer to live.

True, and a lot more than just the economy. The country is in terrible condition with no better in sight. Children and grandchildren are going to have it tougher than ever unless something changes, big!

Just to clear up a thing or two. They have changed the name, Park51, as in the street name and address of the building. So Cordoba Mosque is a moot point. Also would Sarah {Palin} approve of your use of the R-bomb? Would she tell you to RELOAD, like she told Dr. Laura when she dropped the N-bomb 11 times in 4 minutes? My point dont be hypocritical.

And everyone said racism was dead and gone. You sure proved them wrong. Keep up the good work dumbass.

To all whom it may concern:

American is a land of LAW, not sensitivities. I agree it maybe insensitive, given its precariously close procimity to Ground Zero. But The 1st Amendment gives them Freedom of Assembly, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of RELIGION. If your christian you may not have a problem with where you worship, or when you do it. But for people who arent in the MAIN STREAM RELIGION, it is a fact they face daily.

Yes, I'm sure their first choice to name it after Cordoba is a moot point to YOU, but it isn't really. It was only changed when they saw that people were smart enough to figure out what it meant!
Regardless of Sarah Palin's "bombs", what she approves of or says, the facts still speak for themselves! My point, don't be a retard.
