    Now that the American people have gotten their revenge with the death of Osama bin Laden.

    Would be building of the so called Ground Zero Mosque now be a non-issue? :cool:

    Should've always been a non-issue, might as well just piss on the graves of all who died for religious freedom in the Revolution.

    Probably not Sunni, it actually seems like more people hate Muslims now that hes dead than before.

    I have noticed.

    Before bin Laden's death.

    About every third thread was something negative about Muslims or Islam.

    Now there are very few about either of the subjects.

    So I assumed that most Americans had satisfied their bloodlust for revenge.

    Now they hava a sense of victory over Muslims and Islam.

    I think Bin Ladens death has made some Americans more angry with Muslims, maybe it re-opened old wounds, I don't know? just the other day a couple imams were removed from a airplane here in the US because the pilot and some of the passengers were "uncomfortable" with their presence, unfortunatly this problem doesn't die with Bin Laden.:doubt:

    CAIR, ICNA, MSA, and every other U.S. muslim organization I can think of applauded bin Laden's death.

    I wish that the major news media outlets had reported this.

    But I guess it wasn't news. :doubt:

    I don't have a problem with the mosque. I have a problem at the attitude of those who want to build it, and where.

    Seems to me, until the Greek Orthodox Church that was destroyed on 9/11 gets their permit to build, the Mosque should have to wait.

    No it is not okay and here is why. It is PERCEIVED to be a symbol of victory by Islam. Is that the intent? I personally believe it is, but won't go so far as to claim that as fact. It's irrelevant what is fact though. Image is EVERYTHING in this country. You don't take a dump on the feelings of those you claim to want to build a bridge with. You just don't.

    At worst, it's an actual spit in our face, at best it's bad PR for a religion that desperately needs to avoid bad PR in this country.

    Now let me ask you this Sunni. How would Pakistan, and Muslims world wide , react if a Christian Church were built over the site of Bin Laden's death? Not that it would EVER be allowed, but let's play what if.

    To most New Yorkers..and that means people from the city..not upstate...it was never an issue.

    There's already a mosque there.
