There were Muslim SS troops(the 13th Waffen Mountain Division). The only claim close to what aspdt is making that I can find credible reference to is the murder of 5000 people, for which 38 where convicted at Sarajevo. While bad, not nearly what he is claiming.

"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
Could it possibly because 9/11 wasn't perpetrated due to inspiration by the Christian Faith, due to disagreements with American Politics in part based on the Christian Faith, and carried out in such a way due to their belief in the Christian faith, all in hopes of it being a blessed act in the eyes of the Christian God? Could that POSSIBLY be the reason why a Christian church near ground zero wouldn't turn many heads.2) A Christian church at ground zero wouldn't turn a single head, let alone earn the outrage that I am seeing from some over here.
And seriously, I disagree with the notion of it not turning a "single head". I garauntee you some militant athiests would be upset about putting a "religious", IE Christian religion aka the main one they complain about, building so close to what's essentially a national monument for a secular nation.
No, by condemning the building of a mosque supposedly about "out reach" there you are telling them that Islam is closely associated with what occurred on that day and you frankly don't want further reminders of a PROMINENT trait of every one of the attacks when going to visit what is essentially a defacto national memorial or monument.3) In condemning the building of a mosque there, you are essentially telling them that they are one with the terrorists.
Actually, it was muslims. 19 muslims. Every one of the attacks were muslim. A large reason they were willing to commit suicide in the attacks was due to their islamic faith. A large reason they were agreeable to the attack was their islamic faith. A large reason for their anger towards America was rooted in their islamic faith. A large reason why they felt they were justified in their attack was due to their islamic faith. A large part of why they volunteered for the attack was the belief that it would please their lord based on their islamic faith.5) It was terrorists who attacked the US, not Muslims, any more than it was Christians who toasted millions of Jews during WWII, just because Adolf Hitler professed to be a Christian.
Muslims attacked the World Trade Center that day...just like saying a "Men robbed that liquor store" last night or "Man-U fans just beat the crap out of that guy" or "Republicans just sold out their constituents by voting for amnesty" would not be saying ALL men robbed the store, ALL manchester united fans beat the person up, or ALL republicans sold out and voted for amnesty.
Also, nice Godwin dana.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Indeed. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas_big.htmFurther research, will educate you.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
