    What part of that do you not get?

    Now, go sing kumbaya with some hippies somewhere until you calm down.
    I posted this as a news release. To me, it meant something that a mainstream Muslim group spoke out acknowledging the insensitivity that NY'ers feel. If it didn't mean anything to you, so be it. Your post is a waste of bandwidth.

    No matter who says it's not insensitive, that's the same as telling someone, "Oh, you shouldn't feel like that." There's obviously (unless media is lying to us) much local opposition.
    It ain't just local.

    Rasmussen Poll: 54% Oppose Mosque Near Ground Zero
    Updated: Thursday, 22 Jul 2010, 5:06 PM EDT
    Published : Thursday, 22 Jul 2010, 5:05 PM EDT

    Just 20% of U.S. voters favor the building of an Islamic mosque near the Ground Zero site of the World Trade Center in New York City, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

    Fifty-four percent (54%) oppose the planned building of a mosque near where Muslim terrorists brought down the skyscrapers by crashing commercial airliners into them on September 11, 2001. Three thousand people died in the incident and related attacks that day.

    If we apply this logic in reverse, one can blame the US is to blame for 9/11.

    Another waste of bandwidth. That post doesn't even make sense. Most guilty of what? And why are you so antagonistic about a press release? Why a personal attack on me? What's your problem? With me?

    Why is this all so upsetting to you? Do you live in Manhattan? Why is the crushing insensitivity of Muslims forcing you to bold random words and issue plaintive bleats on an internet forum?

    I think what this article is illustrating is the fact that Muslims in the West fear another round of social persecution from those who will be upset by the new mosque. More than being concerned with offending New Yorkers, I would wager the real opposition in the Islamic faith comes from those who fear the building of the mosque will lead to an increasing of hostility towards Islam in the US as a whole.

    The proposed location for the Mosque isn't even at Ground Zero....its three blocks away. Not to mention that the Pentagon, which many people forget was also a tragic target of 911 has a mosque inside for muslim worship, along with other areas for other religious services.

    People are WAAAAAAAAAAY to sensitive over this issue.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. Where do you read that I'm upset about anything? I don't even CARE if they build a mosque in NYC. WHy do you assume I do? I don't know what's the matter with you, but don't be takin' your bad day out on me. And if you don't like 'inflections' in posts, don't read mine. I use them all time. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings.

    If you don't want to talk about the SUBJECT, which is wondering why mainstream media didn't print this story, go away. Orrrr, if you're going to derail the thread, don't make it all about me.

    That is one of the reasons why I oppose the Mosque
