If A**holes in this world make nice people turn into A**holes, then the world will be filled with A**holes! That's why people like me believe in letting these Muslims, who have no connection to the 9/11 attacks, or to terrorism, and who have condemned the attacks, build their Mosque.
    I never said they didn't have the right to build their Mosque, that's not the issue, the issue is whether or not they should, and it is clear that they shouldn't. If this was about cultural outreach as they claim then why not build a memorial to the victims of 9-11 which would actually engender goodwill from the American people towards the Muslim community?

    Due to the words of the Imam behind this initiative it is clear that this only an attempt at provocation not mutual understanding.


    Its kind of like how other countries allow their officers to torture and starve POWs while we don't. Sure we could be like one of those European countries that fosters religious division and holds bitterly to previous conflicts, or we could be the better guys. And that's the difference between conservatives (even the ones who pretend to be anarchist) and liberals. Liberals want to make the world a better, more tolerant place. While conservatives want to foster religious division and discriminate against people because of their race, religion and sexual-orientation.
    lol I love it when the left claims to have this respect for property rights when it suits their agenda. This Mosque is not making the world a more tolerant place it is in fact causing religious division because the entire point of the mosque being built there is as an act of provocation and incitement. If this Muslim groups intent was cultural understanding and cooperation then why was space not set aside for a synagogue and a christian church in this "community center" along with the Mosque? Why didn't they build something that would have actually fostered goodwill towards the muslim community like building a memorial for the victims of 9-11 instead?

    If you support this Mosque being built and not just the right to build it then I suppose you support building an Orthodox Cathedral in the town of Srebrenica.

    The imam that is building the mosque refuses to admit that hamas is a terrorist orginization. That says alot.

    I don't think Obama should've commented at all. He should've just avoided this non-issue and if asked say 'no comment'. Thad what I would've done if I were him.

    Hey, if they own the property they have the right to build what they want.

    But people against it have the right to speak out aganst it.

    Is that the best you got? if so, I don;t think you have anything at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    He wants a Sharia compliant U.S., he blamed the U.S. for 9-11 and said OBL was made in the USA less than 3 weeks after the 9-11 attacks, and has refused to condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization. This isn't some a-political kumbaya singing paragon of multiculturalism, he's an Islamist POS and his intentions to incite are abundantly clear as many actual moderate Muslims have readily expressed.

    "You know to be fair, we've been building ground zero's near Iraqi Mosques since 2003" - thought that was kind of amusing.

    Well, I'm an anarchist so I believe everyone should be able to do whatever the hell they want.

    This is an assumption and an example of typical conservative paranoid delusion. The sky is falling! Everyone is after us!

    Could they have thought of a better way to "build bridges"? Maybe. I remember when I was a kid there was another kid in my class and we hated each other. Anyway, so the teacher thought it would be a great idea to sit us next to each other in the class. I guess she figured it would force us to be around each other and talk and that we'd realize the other person wasn't so bad after all. Did it work? No. But I'm not naive or paranoid enough to believe that she was doing that to "spite" us.

    That's closer, but can you link all that, just to make sure you actually have it straight.
