If they are stupid enough to build this Islamic community center at ground zero they better be prepared for all hell to break loose. Even the Anti_Defamation League opposes the idea - this thing shouldn't even be up for debate it's such a stupid idea...

And if they do build it - then what? NY tax payers are going to spend millions of dollars paying for police security 24/7 at the Islamic center. And the cops are going to be forced to stand guard knowing the Islamic radicals killed their partners in 9/11. The NY Mayor better get a grip.
