    Museum of Tolerance backer: No to WTC mosque

    There's tolerance and then there's tolerance, argues Wiesenthal Center's leader as he celebrates grand opening of group's anti-prejudice museum in Manhattan. Planned Islamic center is too close to 9/11 site, he insists.

    Museum of Tolerance backer: No to WTC mosque - Crain's New York Business

    The new Museum of Tolerance New York opened in the heart of Manhattan this week, citing an ambitious mission to help enlighten city residents and tourists on issues of discrimination, prejudice and social inequality.

    But the museum's financial backer, the Wiesenthal Center of Los Angeles, says it cannot tolerate the planned location near Ground Zero for a mosque and Islamic community center.

    Rabbi Meyer May, the Wiesenthal Center's executive director, on Thursday called the mosque's proposed location “insensitive” to the people who experienced the 9/11 attack that killed nearly 3,000 in 2001 and are still dealing with “extraordinarily painful wounds.”...
    But, there's more to the story...

    In Jerusalem, Israel—where the Wiesenthal Center plans to open its next Museum of Tolerance—construction of the proposed tolerance museum has “resulted in digging up the remains of people who had been buried in a Muslim cemetery for generations,” Ms. Lazreg said.

    The word tolerance IMO is ill-defined, people view tolerance as being nice. When in fact tolerance should be defined as being against using the jackboot thugs of the government to violate the rights of a fellow citizen.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    Holy **** a real museum of tolerance?!

    I wonder if it has a "Tunnel of Prejudice"? That ride looked AWESOME! I'd want to go on it again and again.

    I wonder if it has a wax museum with stereotypes like the "Asian whose good at math" or the "Sleepy Mexican whose to lazy too do his job".

    Its like the next best thing to a planet.arium

    In all seriousness, this is rather ironic that they're complaining about the insensitivity of the location (which I agree with) while on the other side of the world they're digging up a graveyard.

    You must have me confused with statists like Erod, Grim, Jmac, Ric, Conservative and Mr Vicchio. I suppor the construction of the Mosque because as of right now there has yet to be presented evidence that the owners of the land are illegal aliens or/and obtained the land illegally.

    There is one in Los Angeles, already.

    Perhaps this Mosque people should change their approach. They could put in a Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Bhuddist place of worship under the same roof and truly try to bring together people of all the 4 major religions and effect togetherness and outreach... all together. Then they could call it something like "The World Outreach and Tolerance Center". Think the Imam would go for that?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I've heard that someone suggested to place a gay bar next to the mosque. I'm sure they won't mind, we all know how tolerant zealots are.
