Posted on 08/16/2010 1:32:09 PM PDT by peggybac
fter weeks of heated debate over plans for an Islamic community center near Ground Zero the site of the 9/11 attacks on New York - it seems Muslim leaders will soon back down, agreeing to move to a new site.
The decision follows a high-profile campaign against the project that included advertisements on New York buses showing images of the burning Twin Towers, an iconic landmark razed when al-Qaida terrorists flew packed passenger planes into them in 2001. The New York Republican party is also said to be planning a hostile television campaign.
Sources in New York said on Monday that Muslim religious and business leaders will announce plans to abandon the project in the next few days.
New York Governor David Patterson said last weekend that Muslim leaders had rejected outright his proposal to swap the site in for another in Manhattan.

Wow, very smart PR victory for them. They can get to be the, “good guys.”
So it’s credible?
Glory Hallelujah! Great work, NY Repubs and Tea Partiers!
Yeah our enemies are clever.
Providing cover for the muslim-in-chief, if true.
Their little joke backfired when it “outed” Obama, now they’re in damage control mode.
So Obama saved the day. All you naysayers out thee Obama is a good President
Muslim student hit a Jewish, Democrat lawmaker in the face with a pie today. I think they want off the front pages now because the bad PR truth about Islam is getting out.
Is this accurate? Because they lost Harry Reid? Or because they gained Barack Obama?
It's from the same source as this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2571684/posts
Both cite blog posts, but the original article is here:
...Oh No!....they should have waited until Nov to do this...we needed the mosque issue...it was a Dem killer!
It still is along with everything else. The people won’t forget.
They’re not abandoning anything. They are merely altering their plans.
How about the White House lawn?
The issue is still there...maybe not as heated, but still there
Nevertheless, they get to build their mosque in Manhatten.
So while we’re all friends now, when do we get to build that pentecostal megachurch in Riyadh? When is that catholic cathedral going up in Dhahran?
They got their victory when Obama endorsed their idea to build a 9/11 Martyrs Victory Dome so he has some place to pray when he comes downtown.
To build a mosque on our holy ground was nothing more than a stinging slap in the face, especially in light of the fact that there are over a 100 mosques in New York City already.
The damage is done, in terms of pissing people off. They won't forget all the way to November 2nd and who enabled this and did not speak out against it...
This will only increase the intensity to vote against the Borg.
