Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Sep 7, 2010 at 10:56

That (more) Americans have finally awakened to the threat of Islamism is no surprise; however it has taken quite a long time for the event to occur. Currently the Ground Zero Mosque represents all that is abhorrent to Western values and culture. The insensitivity lies with the planners and those who espouse political correctness above what should be done---or not done. If in truth this mosque is a vehicle for radical Islam and its teachings, then it should not be built near the site of the former World Trade Center, nor should it be built anywhere in the United States. Not dimly seen, but may a brighter light prevail.
