Well said. The GZM is more insensitive than burning a book.

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism
in response to reader comment: INSENSITIVITY?

Submitted by Rajeev (United States), Sep 13, 2010 at 01:04

The reader John is absolutely correct in his letter entitled "insensitivity". No one should praise burning of a religious book but indeed GZM is more insensitive than buring of any book whatsoever. Burning a book does not permanently change anything. A Mosque near ground zero will remind everyone who goes there to shed a tear that the under which so many people were killed is being glorified. I will call it insensitive to build a church where Saddam Hussain's statue existed about a decade ago. So I will I call the proposed GZM and were I to drive to Ground Zero, I will take an alternate route.
