Sure hope it’s true and not a trick.

Mark my words, if this happens it will only happen because it’s a bargaining chip in getting something/everything else.

It's not a troll -- the referenced article is legitimate.

Whether it is true or not remains to be seen. Anyone know the track record of Haaretz?

The only reason I could see this happening is that Obama is more valuable to them than the mosque. Because of his statements Obama and his Democrat cohorts were going to be impaled on this issue. By moving the mosque they remove the issue, and save Obama and the Dems.

That being said I will believe it when I see it.

If true, someone in the Whitehouse must have called them and asked them to “please, pretty please, back off for the time being”, to take pressure off of Zero.

From the article:

Another factor in the apparent climbdown is a lack of funds to pay for construction of the center, estimated to cost a hundred million dollars. Backers hope moving it will lead to a wave of support, accompanied by cash donations.

So, since they can't afford it they will stop raping our fallen as an offer of "sensitivity" to our 9/11 families.

How utterly kind of them. And consistent.

Unless of course this is a false article to help raise funds and cool the opposition's jets.

It started out as a joke, but now the muzzies are realizing that it’s hurting their man in the White House. I won’t be surprised if they call it off.

Since they earlier rejected Gov Patterson’s office of a landswap, without even talking to him, I truly doubt this is accurate.

BTW, the comments on the linked articles are very insightful as to the islamic mindset.

I agree.

The Muzzies put everything on the line for this big push - The only way they back off is determined resistance by Americans.

But several people familiar with the debate among New York's Islamic activists now claim that the leaders are convinced abandoning the site is preferable to unleashing a wave of bitterness towards Muslims. No ---- Sherlock.

It is also possible that the decision was also influenced by comments made by U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday, in which he appeared to reverse an earlier show of support.

BINGO!

Even if this story turns out to be true you can bet that they will find an angle to further their own agenda. They won't simply cave. Not a bit.

Rush said today that there's already a Mosque only 12 blocks away from Ground Zero.

So why they need another one 2 blocks away?

Yeah right, the muzzles are like the Democrats, its Ok to lie to get their way, they will probably plan one a few more blocks away, and get the Democrats to give them the land. < /s>

Got a video about Islam the other day, in the video it say the Koren says it is alright to lie to nonmuslims. Does anyone know whether this is true, I've got a gut feeling it is.

I doubt this part of the story. If there is Saudi money involved (and there always is), they don't have a financial problem at all. Something fishy about this story. If they do find a new spot, they'll pick a spot just as offensive and build it twice as tall. This is what these a-holes do.
