I note with disapprobation the continuing flap about building a mosque next to the site of the World Trade Center attacks.
You know, if we’re trying to prevent future attacks on that site, putting a mosque there doesn’t strike me as a bad idea.
I don’t think the protesters have thought this through. But then, so many of the “WE MUST NEVER FORGET 9/11” hardliners seem to live in midcontinent cities where the only terrorist threat is homegrown American crazies. I always want to tell them “Dude, I don’t know about you, but here in NYC we’re not likely to forget 9/11, so please stop yelling at us about it, thank you very much and have a nice day.”
More to the point: where do these hicks get off thinking that no Muslims died in the WTC towers?
