NEW YORK (CBS 2) There was a possible resolution in the works Tuesday night in the debate surrounding the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center near ground zero.
CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer has learned it looks as if the developers of the mosque may be willing to budge and move away from the Park 51 location where they originally planned the construction.
So will the mosque be moving?
New York Gov. David Paterson plans to meet with developers of the controversial ground zero mosque as early as this week to offer them state land at another location for their cultural and religious center. Paterson told Congressman Peter King about the meeting, and King said the governor asked him to make it public.
The purpose of the meeting would be for the governor to discuss with the leaders of the mosque where state property is available, said Rep. King. Whether or not people from the mosque would be willing to consider that property.
King added that the governor seemed very enthused about the anticipated discussions.
For at least a week, the governors message to the developers has been one of hopeful understanding.
I hope that they type of cultural understanding that theyre trying to promote when they build the center could be practiced right now, Paterson said.
Sources tell CBS 2s Kramer that Gov. Paterson is concerned that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of putting the mosque at ground zero, and President Barack Obama, might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.
But there was a glimmer of hope that they are open to a compromise.

the only moderate Muslims are apostate
I’m going to bed...libertarians (even those who claim to be Constitutionalist) and those who think Judeo-Christian culture has been a crime against humanity like most of today’s Left should save their ammo
The whole idea of building the “Mosque” in the chosen or designated area is to add insult to injury and every one tip toes around this issue and no one has the guts or balls to say it out loud. Muslims are not going to be happy unless they can erect a monument to celebrate their successful act of terrorism on 9-11
State land for a mosque?
What ever happened to the “separation of Church and State”?
Oh right, Churches are Christian, Mosques are Muslim.
No “separation of Mosque and State” with B’araq Huessein Mohammad 0bama in the White House.
Others have posted this comment, but it should be pointed out as often a possible!
I wouldn't be suprised if someone put this whole scheme together to justify getting a property that otherwise would be inaccessible, for their new age islamic center & revisionist museum.
If it's state property it would be criminal to allocate it to one group without opening it up for bidding by everyone.
Remember the land deals Tony Rezco, Nadhmi Auchi, Blago and Obama were juggling back in Chicago.
And how much state land is patterson willing to offer Christian churches?
The Left, the Marxists, the Commies all know and are afraid of only one true religion, The one true God and the Judeo Christian roots of America!
What the heck is the State of New York doing giving land to a “religious” organization? This is only getting more insane by the minute.
Is Patterson another crypto-Muslim?
Wonder if they get the land free if the State of NY will also issue a TIF (Terror Incentive Funding) so that the taxpayers of NY can pay for their own ultimate demise?
I thought that in the end this was about Bloomberg thinkingt that if he allowed them to build, they wouldn’t attack NY.
Silly man, they would just use the center to plan their attacks.
It doesn’t matter where the mosque or any mosque is built! The problem still remains. They are using the construction of all mosques as a means to replace the Constitution with Sharia law!
Even Peter King looks and sounds idiotic here.
So glad that the “Muslims would consider” a different location. Sort of reminds me of just one of the thousand things that rankled me about Obama, who, as he got closer to his inevitable Presidency, would say things like “I would consider” (the possibility of this or that policy).
I don’t want them ‘considering’ anything.....THEY DON’T BELONG HERE; THESE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO BE BIGTIME POLITICAL PLAYERS IN AMERICAN LIFE.
I too wish the “Muslims would consider a different location” for their evil mosque.
How about just inside the gates of hell!
State land for a stinking mosque? I don’t think so. Every other church member had
better be demanding their own piece of state land if this goes down.
Exactly. Here is a list of some of the US Mosques that are teaching Sharia.
If they build this, they won’t need to attack NY.
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. “
