    Interesting. On one hand I agree with Palin, it feels like a provocation. On the other hand, Palin should mind her own damn business. This is a New York City issue. The Masjid Manhattan Mosque is only a few blocks away from the WTC. Muslims regularly can be seen praying OUTSIDE of the mosque when it is too busy. Is that a provocation? Not at all. Seems to me like one more issue she feels the need to cash in on. New Yorkers pride themselves in being multicultural. It should be up to them to decide whether or not the mosque is built and for what reason. Not up to politicians who pimp themselves out at every chance or their xenophobic followers around America.
    I am going to agree with you on this one, Hatuey. America stands for freedom of religion, and in one of Jefferson's speeches, he said that it applied not only to Christians, but also to Jews, "Hindoo", and Muslims. Praying or preaching in any religion is not provocation......

    Oops, unless it is Pat Robertson preaching for more of the 911 victims' families to suffer, like he has already done. He isn't Islamic either. How about that!

    So the KKK represents all of Christianity to you, does it? I wouldn't like the KKK building a monument, but if a Christian church wants to build one to commemorate something other than a fallen Klansman, I don't mind. In fact, they might even build a replica of a straw man. You just gave them an excellent blueprint.

    A question for the ages: Politicians using twitter...... Does that makes them twits, or were they always that way?

    The argument doesn't apply as Al-Queda is not trying to build the mosuqe. 99.9999999999% of Muslims are not terrorists.

    This mosque isn't a monument to Al-Qaeda of any sort so your analogy is not accurate. A better analogy would be if I would be cool with some regular Catholic church being build there by a Catholic group, and I would be perfectly fine with that, yes.

    The ratio of Muslims:Terrorists is actually slightly higher than you describe. (too many decimal points. there aren't that many people on earth )

    Who owns the property? If it's a private individual/company they can build whatever they like. If it's the government (no matter what level) then no because it's a violation of the First Amendment's prohibition against establishing a religion.

    The imam building the mosque is a jihadist. Do jihadists represent AQ? Yes??

    He's part of a group (Perdana Global Peace Organization) that gave some money to another group (Free Gaza Movement). That group sponsored the IHH flotilla.

    That somehow makes him a jihadist.

    Care to show your reasoning? And it may help if you didn't use a website like JihadWatch
