Jon Stewart spoke about the Ground Zero mosque in his show in a segment I recommend you to watch.
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Municipal Land-Use Hearing Update|
Now Newt Gingrich is saying that why we should let that Mosque "Islamic Center" to be specific in the States when Saudi Arabia does not allow churches and synagogues !!
Strangely I have heard this before but not in English but in French , Jean Marie Le Pen said the same thing during the French presidential election in 2007 !!!
Now I wonder if it were not the Cordoba organization and it were Al Azhar which is perceived as the most moderate Islamic organization in the world was behind this center , would all those opponents refuse it !!?? It is not about Cordoba or about the Qaida I am afraid , it is about accepting Islam as portrayed in Daily Show segment.
There are Muslim victims who died in the 9/11 other than the Al Qaida gang whose families read the Quran and visit the Holy land in Mecca to do Omra and Hajj in their honors , there are thousands of American Muslims who have contributed and are still contributing so much to advance of the United States whether in Science or technology or economy..etc since 1950s and they do not deserve this treatment and this increase notion of racism and hate.
It is not about mosques because as Muslims we can pray anywhere clean but it is about racism and hate and what these groups are spreading is dangerous.
