YES to a Ground Zero mosque

A mosque will soon be built close to Ground Zero in New York, within an Islamic Cultural Complex proposed by a group of moderate American Muslims and seconded by 'friendly' Americans who understood that 9/11 was not about religion.

Whether or not it was a sign of good gesture by Obama's administration towards the Muslim World, what's important is the willingness of some Americans to accept the fact that Islam is not 'a religion of terror'.

New York's Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously on Tuesday against granting landmark status to a Lower Manhattan building, clearing the way for a controversial mosque near the World Trade Center site.

Conducted under heavy police presence in a theater at Pace University in Lower Manhattan, the vote of the nine-member panel decided not to grant protective status to 45 Park Place, the proposed site of an Islamic cultural center and mosque.

The decision allows the building to be torn down to make way for a 13-story Islamic center of US$100 million, which would include a mosque, as well as performing arts spaces, a gym, and other facilities.

bagus la kalau ada rakyat amerika yang tidak mengaitkan 11 sept dengan islam.

islam tak pernah galakkan penganutnya berbuat demikian. malah islam turut menggalakkan penganutnya melindungi orang lain, termasuk dari agama bukan islam.

cuma mungkin kebetulan mereka yang melakukan perbuatan itu adalah orang islam yang kecewa dengan tindakan berterusan amerika mengenepikan palestin dan membela israel.

saya sendiri yakin ramai rakyat isreal yang simpati dengan rakyat palestin dan menentang dasar tel aviv terhadap rakyat palestin.

kita juga bukan menyalahkan orang yahudi tetapi rejim israel
