    So he should listen to those that are intolerant of him/his religion? He should succumb to the demands of people who associate him/his religion with extremists? Such people are not even looking to improve relations. There are many 9/11 victims' families that have shown support for this center. Is their opinion less valid than those other families who are against it?

Let the extremists, wherever they are, piss and moan, and let those who love the Lord God celebrate. This IS what America is all about, folks.

    I would like to see something like this become a model that will inspire religious people throughout the entire world to build more projects like this. And that, one day, we Americans will be known not for our differences, but for what binds us all together as Americans. I've said it before, and I will say it again. America is a beacon. Let it continue to be so.

    This July, America celebrated 234 years of awesomeness, but as awesome as we are, our best days are ahead of us. God bless America, and God bless all of her people, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or any other religion.

    Wow, the words are hard to find.

    I am surprised this olive-branch was offered. But my respect for the Manhattan Mosque and it's planners has increased ten-fold. Really good show of faith and compassion.

    what makes remotely important the opinions of those with whom one is trying to improve relations?

    ask your mom

    ask anyone's

    Millions of people in the Middle East believe the Republican Party is a terrorist organization. Is their opinion on a foreign nation's political party even relevant?
    more relevant there than here, i spose

    such an odd question, in new york

    You sound like the Pastor from Florida
    LOL!

    Are you going to counter my position
    by no means

    So he should listen to those that are intolerant of him/his religion? He should succumb to the demands of people who associate him/his religion with extremists? Such people are not even looking to improve relations.
    i guess it is rather difficult to improve relations with so many millions of people one has so low an opinion of

    indeed, many might wonder whether one ought even try

    but then, that'd be mr rauf's problem, wouldn't it

    There are many 9/11 victims' families that have shown support for this center. Is their opinion less valid than those other families who are against it?
    it appears relations with that minority of upstanding americans are already pretty good

    No. Especially when so many of them voted for Hamas or have no trouble with their existence.


    He should succumb to the demands of people who associate him/his religion with extremists?
    If they do they have no idea of the difference between Christianity and Islam, the second being a religion re-built for war by its creator himself.


    There are many 9/11 victims' families that have shown support for this center. Is their opinion less valid than those other families who are against it?
    And how many are they out of all of them? 1/2? 1/3? 1/4? 1/18, etc.?
