Freedom of Religion....where in the Middle East
Reader comment on: A Mega-Mosque at Ground Zero?
Submitted by Gordon (Canada), Aug 7, 2010 17:27
Other than Israel, very few Middle Eastern nations allow any other religion to be practiced in their country. Many of those nations do not allow buildings from other religions to be erected. I say...when Jews can build a Synagogue anywhere in Saudi Arabia or place a small prayer building on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem then maybe we can consider allowing a Mosque to be built next to Ground Zero of 9/11. Muslims are very sensitive about their religion being disgraced.... Ground Zero is sacred ground now and most Americans do not want the Mosque anywhere near it that site. If Muslims are as sensitive as they wish others to be, then they should respect the sanctity of this area and place the new Mosque somewhere else, in a more out-of-the-way place.
