    The confiscation of property through drug laws is pretty bad. I don't agree with it in the least. You can lend your car to a friend, who goes and sells drugs; then your car can go by by. It's nothing more than government sponsored theft. But other than that; perchance you have proof that it's being funded by terrorists? Yes? If not, you have no legal say in what they're doing. This lawsuit is just silly, though we allow silly lawsuits. It's pretty immature and stupid and in the end betrays our very values and beliefs.

    Actually, the friend only has to be suspected of possessing or selling drugs for you to lose your car..... then you have to prove that neither happened to get your car back, and pay the towing and storage fees.

    Wait, aren't you one of the ones whining about how the Law needs to be respected? So are you saying now that because the Mosque folks claim the law is on their side no challenge may be presented against them? Are you afraid the law might not be so?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    What they WANT out of the lawsuit is what is being talked about here along with its being filed in the first place.

    This, and Carl Paladino's promise to use eminent domain to stop the project if elected to state senate totaly, IMO, kills the idea that /NOBODY/ wants to legally stop it or prevent them from building / opponents are /ONLY/ saying it is a bad idea to build it there.

    As far as I'm concerned, that is just been rendered bunk. People are going from "I think it is a bad idea" to "I think it is a bad idea, so lets do what we can to FORCE them using the law," which is kinda freaky.

    What law was broken?

    The if the Burlington Coat Factory was a landmark, then I guess so is the strip club and betting parlor in the area. I doubt these people would block all construction in the area, because some buildings were hit. This is a bull**** excuse to prevent people from using their property

    I don't want state intervention in this process it will be handled through protest to encourage people to refuse to enter into contract with this Imam to trade their labour for his capital. No state intervention necessary.

    Damn government, telling me what to do. I want them out of my life, except to interfere in other people's lives when their actions offend me.

    The point of building codes are for public safety. I fail to see the inherent dangers of a mosque.

    After saying the building was “arguably one of the most significant properties in New York,” Joshpe said he would not be pursuing the case if a Christian church were being built on the same site.

    “Would I be personally involved in this matter if this were a church? No,” he said. “And the reason why is because if it were a church it wouldn’t be offending and hurting the 9/11 victims’ families.”
    Well, that tells you everything you need to know about this lawsuit.

    But one of the major controling shareholders of FoxNews is funding the mosque/community center. Surely, you're not accusing the owners of FoxNews of being terrorists, are you? Oh boy, I sure wouldn't mind seeing their assets get auctioned off.

    Besides, Imam Rauf has worked for and with the FBI for the last ten years, so if there is terrorist funding don't you think the FBI would know by now? Come on, get a brain.
