Los Angeles, July 21, 2010
Plans to build a mosque and Islamic center just 200 meters from the former site of the World Trade Center where 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks are not merely inappropriate, they are an outrage.
This isn't about some sort of reconciliation between Muslims and their New York neighbors, it's the equivalent of plunging a dagger into the very heart of America . If the Muslim community had any sense of compassion for the feelings of their fellow Americans, they'd find someplace else to build their mosque. Instead, they choose a site that forever serves as a reminder of that fatal blow against the American people.
Incredibly, the proposed $100 million development is located at the site of the former Burlington Coat Factory in Lower Manhattan, which closed after the landing gear from one of the 9/11 planes hit the building. It is about 200 meters from World Trade Center , where 3,000 people died in the terrorist attack.
Do the members of the Muslim community have any idea of how the American people feel about the site of that cowardly attack on the World Trade Center buildings? Do they not understand that the site itself stands as an indictment of the perfidy of the 9/11 sneak attack and is the least appropriate site for a Muslim religious complex that will stand as a stark reminder of that attack and the people behind it?
The proposed mosque will be part of what is known as the Cordoba House project, a 13-story Muslim community center planned to include a theater and sports facilities, including a swimming pool.
