Americans building a Mosque on ground zero [GROUND ZERO MOSQUE]

http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/05/07/new...que/index.html

So what do you guys think about this? I think it is marvelous and would like to go further with this concept and build a golden statue of adolf Hitler in Tel Aviv.

would make sense, no?

Re: Americans building a Mosque on ground zero

The building is already being used a mosque. What is the issue? Americans don't like renovation?

Re: Americans building a Mosque on ground zero

No I was more curious as to most Americans feel about this. Considering it was islamists that did the terror attack.

are people fine with this? or are people thinking they might be better of somewhere else in the area?

just curious to the "general attitude" among expat Americans.

Re: Americans building a Mosque on ground zero

The Imams in the mosque are moderate Muslim who publicly denounce Al quada and extremism. The Americans CRY out for Muslims like this. Then when they come along they treat them like this.

Well there is a slight difference between your average German tourist and building a "saddam like" hitler statue in gold, downtown tel aviv, no?

Islamic terrorists did the attack. I wouldn't be happy if they built a terrorist training camp. This is a moderate mosque.

yes agreed, but they where islamic terrorists or am I completley wrong here?

Did not UBL quote the quran and stuff and say they did it because they hate the big devil country?

If I am wrong please correct me, this was my view of the chain of events.

(or is it non-PC to discuss the islamist involvement at all?) if yes, then let's delete this thread.

cheers

except your not "just curious" are you. You've actually got your views nicely sorted out and its glaringly obvious what you think. Try and drum up a bit of support for it under the "just curious" line.

I'm curious why your such a tosser. can anyone else help me understand why I think like this about you OtherOne? Im particularly interested to hear from non tossers.

Re: Americans building a Mosque on ground zero

No they are not. The mosque will be close to ground zero but not on it. The building is already being used as a mosque.

I think it is stupid yes, and as I said I compare it to raising a golden statue of AH in Tel Aviv.

but I am more curious if most Americans think this is fully OK, or maybe it is not appropriate and so on.

If I was naturalised in 2003 as an American would my opinion be worth more?
