Mosque Near Ground Zero…or Not?

I’ve not agreed with Obama on many issues.  I did, however, when he insinuated it would be unwise to build a mosque near Ground Zero.  “I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there (near Ground Zero),” Obama said. View the video.

My opinion is quite simple and, I believe, well-reasoned.  Let’s set aside the ancient, purist American philosophy and consider the reality of the 21st century:  A mosque will be a target.  Not only will it stand as a symbol of victory for the muslim extremists, some fanatic – or relative of a 9/11 victim – will either blow it up, burn it down, or drop in for a suicide shooting spree.  Those who desire this mosque claim it would be peace-promoting; however, the impassioned anger and bitter controversy the mere proposal has brought has already defeated this purpose.

Of course, most Americans are not reflecting on any of this, as they are only concerned about Snookie, and getting their own reality show.

Now it’s your turn.  Make your vote count and take the poll below.  Please, only one vote per household or office, so take your own poll and vote accordingly!
