So in what was once one of the most powerfull financal centers of the world, they're planing on building a mosque in place of a damaged store.

What are your feelings on this, I seriously think it's in poor taste what ever the motivation behind it is.

If they want to build their mosque, that's fine. If people don't like it, they can ignore it. It's about as simple as it gets.

Gotta love the comments in the Daily Hate talking about Saudi Arabia etc.. isn't that what separates us from them? I had no idea there were so many people who wish to see the Western world adopt Saudi Arabias style of governance albeit using Christianity. That shit sucks

I can understand the frustration and irony in all this, though. What's the acceptable distance a mosque can be built from ground zero then, lol. There must be a line somewhere. Meh.....I'm not a fan of Islamic architecture one bit, that would be my reason of not being happy. I think all the minarets and domes are ugly things.... but whatever.

New York is no stranger to irony though, remember when they lit up the Empire State Building. The icon of capitalism and the west. They lit it up red to celebrate the Chinese communist revolution, hahaha... trolled....

It's honestly not so much that's it's being built. But it really is in poor taste and the tax exempt status will take away from revenue the city desperately needs.

The tax excempt thing bugs me.  Also the propaganda victory.


You don't hear Muslims declaring victory, but that is what they will do.

Well plans on, at the bottom of the page it states. They don't have the funding..

I would like for it to just be restored to it's former glory, which is a financal center.

A group of individuals that hated America destroyed the twin towers, not the Islamic people as a whole. I guess it would be ok for them to build it there.

It's just as stupid building a mosque as a church, a synagogue or any other religious building. Or should i say ironic, since religion is largely to blame for the big hole in the ground in the first place.

It's also bullshit hate-mongering of the kind the DM and other shite media outlets specialise in in order to sensationalise shit that doesn't fucking mean anything.

It's unnecessarily inflammatory. Like tagging a house the 'more violent' element of your gang had murdered someone in via drive-by. They should find a different site.

'cause we all know the Buddhists, Methodists and Pastafarians were in on the whole thing.

At least they're building something there.  It's taken long enough already.

Yeah I wrote a letter a few years back. I think I posted it up here as well, asking what was going on.

I think(I'll look for it in a second) they stated that the project is suppose to be done 2012, they're probably waiting for the end of the world to happen.

But they're not, they're looking to see if it's ok. They don't have the funding, I'm also mad that the last time they had a project go it was by a Spanish architect not an American.

Why's it daily hate?
Aside from it's heritage of running the headline 'HURRAH FOR THE BLACKSHIRTS' in 1934 and the headline 'Abortion hope after 'gay genes' finding' in more recent times?
