Should There Be A Giant Mosque Near Ground Zero? NO! :(

A major controversy developing in New York City is whether a giant mosque should be constructed a short distance from Ground Zero, where the Trade Center Twin Towers once stood!

There is discussion of replacing an historic building, going back to the 19th century, to make way for this Islamic house of worship. But is this site the proper one? The answer is NO! 🙁

This is not, and should not, be seen as anti Islamic, although it will be seen as such by many Muslims in America and elsewhere. There is no issue that mosques can be built, as much as churches and synagogues anywhere in America. But NOT at an historic site that includes the ashes of many who died on September 11!

This is too sensitive a matter, and the feelings of New Yorkers and Americans must be the prime consideration in this matter. The Landmark Preservation Commission must rule in favor of making the present building protected from demolition!

It is not the point of promoting Islamic phobia, which must be worked against. But this is a sacred location, and must be left as hallowed ground, as a memory of those nearly 3,000 people of all nationalities and religions who died there because of the dastardly deed done by 19 Islamic terrorists!

Build mosques in other locations, as happens all the time, but NOT at or near Ground Zero! This is sacrosanct territory, and must remain as a memorial to remind future generations of the greatest tragedy ever to hit US territory on the mainland of our nation!

    I do not believe this Mosque should be built there. If it is seen by Muslims as antiIslamic then that’s tough. I am English and my country has changed so much. It seems to me that politicians in most western countries are terrified of offending them. I sincerely hope that you will fight this proposal with all your heart. Good luck.

    Iorna, since you’re English, perhaps you are unfamiliar with the main reason why the United States was created and the basic principle underlying its declaration of independence, constitution and bill of rights. It’s called religious freedom.
