Mosque near Ground Zero just 686 Feet Closer Than Existing Mosque

Lifestyle

What difference does 686 feet make? Depends on timing.

There are many mosques in Manhattan. The only difference between building a new mosque today and building a mosque a few years ago is the attack on the World Trade Center which created what is now referred to as Ground Zero.

There already is a mosque located about 2000 feet from Ground Zero.

With all the outcry over the new Islamic Cultural Center (including a mosque) being built near Ground Zero
one might think this was the first mosque in Manhattan.

Conservative critics from around the country are expressing their outrage at such “disrespect.” President Obama chose a dinner during Ramadan to express his view that the mosque should be allowed to be constructed anywhere. He did not advocate it’s location – only pointing out the right of religious groups to worship anyplace as promised by the constitution.

From a list at IslamiCity.com, the map shown above (link here) was created.

How close is too close? Critics (most who don’t live in Manhattan) are saying “that depends on when you ask.”

The "thumb in the eye of America" is the fact that politicians are attacking any form of religion. The Muslim faith is far different than the extremist Islamic views of terrorists. Some American's only believe in freedom of religion and the distancing of persecution if it's convenient to them and that's not what America is suppose to be about.

The other mosques were already there. There's no political agenda involved in simply being somewhere... But, to purposefully plant a center of Islamic culture right next to a disastrous manifestation of Islamic culture is a thumb in the eye of America. It's name, "Córdoba" is a mocking tribute to Islam's conquest of Western culture. It's not distance. It's timing--AND the motive behind it all.
