H. DiSp.,

I am totally against the mosque. The 9/11 attackers were Muslims acting in the name of Islam. If not for the teachings in the Quran and the Islam mindset, there would be no terrorist attacks except for occasional nut jobs. Three verses in the Quran I point to out of expediency are Sura 9-5, "...slay the pagan with every stratagem of war...", Sura 9-29, fight people of the Book (Bible) who do not believe in the religion of truth (Islam) until they are subdued and pay the tax with willing submission, and Sura 5-51, make not friends or protectors of Christians and Jews as they are friends and protectors of each other and who ever turns to them for friendship and protection is 'of them'. The Quran supposedly is Allah's revelation to Muhammad via Gabriel and Muslims are supposed to believe that. There are many more violent passages against non believers in the Quran. The above three passages relate to 99% of Americans (unbelievers).

Read the Quran. Get Robert Spencer's books, "The Truth about Muhammad" and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam" plus read some of the books by apostates from Islam like Ibn Warraq, Bat Yeor, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Mark Gabriel, many of whom fear for their lives as Muslims who leave Islam are subject to the death penalty per Muhammad's Hadiths (Robert Spencer, "Whoever leaves his religion, kill him"). Visit Spencer's website Jihadwatch.org. Educate yourself.

We have had the Ft Hood attack and the Christmas Day underpants bomber and the Times Square attempt and all of these are Muslims driven and motivated by the ideology in the Quran against non believers.

A mosque at ground zero would be a slap in the face. The fundamentalists (%??) want to make America into an Islamic state governed by Sharia Law (Quranic Law). If these Muslims start publicly burning the violent pages in their Quran against unbelievers it would be a start to believing their supposed good will…But that would be a large part of the book.

Submitting....
