The more people try to explain the proposed mosque at Ground Zero, the worse it sounds. Why of all the faith communities at Ground Zero is Islam to be the biggest presence. Must we overlook that Islam was the professed faith of all the 9/11 hijackers? What is really aggravating about the apologists for the "Cordoba Center" is how they say it will be a community center there. The Times of London elaborates as follows
"The $100 million (£69 million) project would include a swimming pool, a basketball court, a 500-seat theatre and possibly a daycare centre. About 2,000 Muslims are expected to attend Friday prayers there."
Basketball and a swimming pool? What unsurpassed arrogance ! How about having a Woodstock concert at Arlington National Cemetery?" How about having a women's marathon through Mecca and Medina during the Haj? No one faith owns Ground Zero. It should never, ever be a place for recreation. Basketball at Ground Zero? What unmitigated gall! Any politician who is not a prostitute (and I apologise to all prostitutes for the comparison) should angrily refuse this arrogant proposal. Sphere: Related Content
