Giuliani comes out against Ground Zero mosque as well
"It sends a particularly bad message, particularly (because) of the background of the Imam who is supporting this. This is an Imam who has supported radical causes, who has not been forthright in condemning Islamic (terrorism) and the worst instincts that that brings about.Too bad there aren't that many, eh?
"So it not only is exactly the wrong place, right at Ground Zero, but it's a mosque supported by an Imam who has a record of support for causes that were sympathetic with terrorism. Come on! We're gonna allow that at Ground Zero?
"This is a desecration," he added. "Nobody would allow something like that at Pearl Harbor. Let's have some respect for who died there and why they died there. Let's not put this off on some kind of politically correct theory."
"I mean, they died there because of Islamic extremist terrorism. They are our enemy, we can say that, the world will not end when we say that. And the reality is it will not and should not insult any decent Muslim because decent Muslims should be as opposed to Islamic extremism as you and I are."
The New York Daily News reports that the Landmarks Preservation Commission is going to vote against granting protected status to the Burlington Coat Factory, which could help keep the mosque from arising. Clearly, the inmates running the asylum here are corrupt and sellouts, and let's not forget Michael Bloomberg himself.
