    NEW YORK (PIX11)— A lawsuit launched by a former New York City firefighter against the construction of an Islamic community center near Ground Zero has been tossed out by a New York judge.

    New York Supreme Court Justice Paul G. Feinman ruled Friday that firefighter Timothy Brown had no special legal standing to bring on the suit, the New York Times reported.

    Brown filed the lawsuit following a decision by the Landmarks Preservation Commission to deny landmark status to the building, which is the former site of a Burlington Coat Factory that was partially damaged in the Sept 11th terrorist attacks.

    Critics of the construction have deemed the project an insult to victims.

    A lawyer for developer Sharif el-Gamal called the decision "a victory for America."

    The Synagogue Bomb Plot

    There are other ideologies with which to expunge the last vapors of reasonableness from a society's discourse, but Islam is undoubtedly one of the best we've got and they are turning up the back-burners. I think that this does spit on the graves of Americans personally.

    And I also think that this proves the lack of empathy in these leaders who want to establish a Mosque there.

    The technical legal term for this is ‘duh.’

    It would have been an interesting case, however; Brown could have predicated his argument on hate, ignorance, and contempt for the First Amendment.

    It's always about Jews with you Sunni Man. I don't disagree with the tossing out of the case as it had no real legs to stand on.

    That being said, I still believe that a Mosque at that site is a spit on the faces of the people killed there and I think that those leaders who are attempting to create one there have no understanding of empathy.

    The law allows for the Mosque to be built there. I personally disagree with it being built but not because of law. Do you see what I am saying?

    It's nothing about Jews Sunni Man but that's your first place to go. It's my view and I am a Jew so I guess, by extension you can go there if you like.

    It's my view. When you call for my people to be removed from humanity I do not condemn either Islam or Muslims.

    I condemn your words, created in your mind that call to remove my people from the rest of humanities world.

    See the difference?

    I still think it would have failed. I don't think any of those legs stand. It's more about the leaders wanting to build the Mosque there having no sensitivity or empathy for the victim dead.

    And attacks/death are still occurring.

    Just curious, if the hijackers were Christian, would it be spitting on the victims to build a church there?

    Islam did kill those in the Twin Towers, terrorists did.
