A proposal to build a mosque steps from Ground Zero received the support of a downtown committee despite some loved ones of 9/11 victims finding it offensive.
The 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center was unanimously endorsed by the 12-member Community Board 1's financial district committee.
The $100 million project, called the Cordoba House, is proposed for the old Burlington Coat Factory building at Park Place and Broadway, just two blocks from the World Trade Center site.
"I think it will be a wonderful asset to the community," said committee Chairman Ro Sheffe.
Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims.
...Daisy Khan, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, said donations from prestigious groups such as the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund would pay for the construction.

It is almost like these morons are literally begging for another attack. Their minds are so open that not only have their brains fallen out, but someone has used the cavity as a toilet.
I guess it was the only spot on the island of Manhattan that they could find to build a mosque.
If they build it we will burn it down!!!
Of course infidels will not be allowed in the mosque.
But, Obama will probably be invited for it’s opening..just watch.
The nation will never wake up. The world will NEVER wake up. These are the last days. Our only hope is a quick death.
Disgraceful. A real kick in the teeth of those who died that day.
this is not war. this is surrender and appeasement
“Unthinkable and unacceptable.”
The ultimate in your face move by the moose limbs...I still don’t believe it will get finished, or if it does, that it will stand for very long...no, I am NOT threatening them...I’m just saying, it’s just toooooo much for the poor (for the most part) family members and survivors and many other people of NYC to bear.
This is the true definition of PC run amok.
what’s the address? i’ll need to know where to relieve myself whenever i’m unfortunate enough to be in new york
How about getting a half dozen pigs and slaughtering them on the grounds and spreading the blood around. I heard that it worked in a Houston suburb.
i’m sure local residents will come up with plenty of creative ideas during construction
of course, that doesn’t mean i won’t accidentally drop a few strips of bacon in the lobby while asking to use the facilities
It doesn't take much to imagine some shoddier than usual labor--bad welds, missing rivets, does it?
Why not offer the Chicoms US property from which they can launch their nukes? Its the same as allowing this death cult to build their terrorist training centers.
Civilization is crumbling around us - and, as always, cities are the least civilized of places.
We get dumber and dumber every day.

No. Or some terrible wiring, Chinese Sheetrock or flammable materials in the walls...so many things could go wrong...the security would have to be enormous...although they won’t have to be worried about being defended by HS, which would assure a long life for the building (unless they decide to stack a bunch of women and children inside and become a “sect”) they will have to depend on dedicated and well trained terrorists like panty bomber guy and Times Square guy. Or the dopey looking Deputy Dawg Moose Limb baton wearing doofus at the polls guy. Game over.
