    Also judging from the new head of the army to replace Basbug as military commander, i wouldn't say that for certain.
    Infact, it's very possible our army is funding the PKK to set the scene for a possible coup.

    Funding them? Hell they just attacked them.....

    what does consideration have to do with anything?

    we're trying to improve relations, here, aren't we?

    That's it folks, we can't build anything, anywhere, anymore.
    Someone may have died there.
    oh, he can build it if he wants, that's already been established

    but if he really wants to get along better with his neighbors, like he says, he's kinda going about it the wrong way

    So now liberals are concerned with religious freedom? Well thank goodness that it isn't a Christian church we are speaking of, the argument would probably be 180 degrees turned around.

    BTW, can you answer why this Mosque is being fast tracked, while St. Nicholas is being stonewalled?

    Yes I want to use my freedom of speech as the last, best, and only defense against the spread of a virulent oppressive ideology. The same way I don't want to infringe upon the rights of the Nazi party but will condemn their ideology at every turn.

    Nice libertarian attitude there.
    It is actually, I support the right of free speech for those opposed to the building of this Mosque and I support the property rights of those who want to build the Mosque.

    Needless to say, I doubt the Muslims who are behind the project will make their decision based on the wailings of the Islamophobic far right.
    lol, Islamophobic, you know what you're absolutely right, I find an ideology pretty scary when it is based on what the adherents believe an invisible man in the sky had to say to some guy who may or may not have even existed 1,500 years ago in which the only accepted view in all five major mainstream sects that the penalties for apostasy, homosexuality, adultery, and/or premarital sex are corporal and/or capital punishment.

    That's fine but don't always approach the argument from "what about the victim's families."

    We can't halt progress because some people might get upset.
