I am saddened and outraged to learn that President Obama has expressed his support
for building a mosque at Ground Zero. As someone who witnessed the 9/11 attacks first-hand, and lost close friends in those attacks, I am appalled that our leaders would allow, and in Obama's case, support the building of a victory mosque at Ground Zero. I have spoken out on this issue for months, and I will proudly continue to do so.
Please check out my June op-ed on this issue and why building this mosque is absolutely the wrong thing to do and totally disrespectful to both the victims and survivors of the 9/11 attack. Then, you can follow along as the debate heated up over the summer.
I've been attacked time and again by Liberals who don't understand my personal connection to 9/11, and their arguments consist of "why should you care, you're not a New Yorker!" To that I answer, this is not merely a New York concern. This is an American concern, and one on which the people have spoken loud and clear: a supermajority of Americans OPPOSE the construction of a mosque on our near Ground Zero. Yet once again, Democrat leaders are determined to thwart the will of the people in pursuit of their own political agenda.
Please read the following article by a British writer who clearly sees the U.S. making the same terrible mistakes in dealing with Islam that the U.K. has already made: Ground Zero Mosque Hurts Islam.
