I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

From The New York Times:
The fate of the church, a narrow whitewashed building that was crushed in the attack on the World Trade Center, was supposed to have been settled eight months ago, with a tentative agreement in which the church would swap its land for a grander church building on a larger parcel nearby, with a $20 million subsidy from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. This would have allowed work to begin at the south end of the site.
But the two sides never came to final terms. After months of negotiations, the Port Authority, which is overseeing reconstruction at ground zero, ended its talks with the church on Monday, saying that the church had sought increasingly costly concessions.
In short, financial considerations--namely the asking price of government subsidies--were a stumbling block, not religious intolerance. The article also notes that the Church is free to build on its original parcel.

I know, its very complicated, but this is no place to explain it.
Search up Operation Sledgehammer and Ergenekon on Google and you'll understand what i mean.
The countries entire structure was built to usurp Islamists like Erdogan, unfortunately, and im ashamed to say it, Democracy has embattled this systems effectiveness a bit.
