Update 8/22/2010:
1. The place would be a cultural center. 2. There already is a mosque near "Ground Zero", so why are we getting upset about a cultural center (that would have a mosque) near "Ground Zero"?

"According to [Washington Post] quoted in August 22, 2010 Cleveland Plain Dealer (section A8), "There are at least two other mosques in the neighborhood. The Masjid al Farah, where Rauf served as prayer leader until 2009, sits 12 blocks from "Ground Zero" The Masjid Manhattan, founded in 1970, is four blocks from "Ground Zero" on Warren Street."

The Plain Dealer also went on toe say, "By some estimates, the center would create as many as 150 full-time and 500 part-time jobs."


Worth mentioning: Filosufer in the Plain Dealer comment section remarked: "Thank God it wasn't Episcopalians who attacked WTC. They wouldn't be allowed to build anywhere."

Now guys, this is going to knock your socks off. According to [Washington Post] quoted in yesterday's Cleveland Plain Dealer (section A8), "There are at least two other mosques [already] in the neighborhood. The Masjid al Farah, where Rauf served as prayer leader until 2009, sits12 blocks from Ground Zero. The Masjid Manhattan, founded in 1970, is four blocks from Ground Zero, on Warren Street."

Also, "By some estimates, the center would create as many as 150 full-time and 500 part-time jobs."

Guess this fuss really is mostly about politics as usual.

John Boehner's name keeps popping up all over the place.
Remember that Defund Acorn Act? Yeah, John Boehner's idea.

The finger should be pointed in one direction ... a whole bunch of conservatives and Republicans.

Ron Christie and a lot of other Republicans keep saying over and over again that the 911 families don't want the Mosque (actually a Cultural Center) near Ground Zero. He and other Republicans are telling half truths. Some don't, and some do.

Furthermore, the Mayor of New York City (where Ground Zero is) and a lot of religious leaders, support the building of the Cultural Center.
