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.

Is this a Muzzy defeat or a shakedown?
All, please understand that this “community center” may be built “as of right,” meaning that there are NO legal obstacles whatsoever to its construction.
No permission need be asked of anyone; the last hurdle being the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which ruled that the building had no architectural or historical value that required landmark status.
(Yes, I to would have given it historical value based on the fact the part of the landing gear from the second plane crashed through the roof of the building - but I am not on the commission.)
If the goal is to prevent the mosque from being built, the sponsors will have to stop or move the project VOLUNTARILY; to that end, Patterson has done us a favor by opening dialogue. Also, I am not sure that state land will be given for free - I was under the impression that the state would be willing to sell the land.
But even if it were given for free - I can live with that a lot easier than the mosque. Since they are building as of right, I think it’s the best deal we can get.
STATE LAND? Oh, REALLY? The blatant hypocrisy and anti-Christianity of the left is an outrage. Let the anti-American jihadists BUY PRIVATE LAND (I'm sure plenty of lefties would be happy to sell to them) for their Future Terrorism Planning Center.
For free or what? Or is this a way for the muzzies to get free land to build a church?
Hmm... I’m not sure about your tone, Wardaddy. Maybe we should look into YOUR funding.
Maybe if we let them build the mosque it would be protective of whatever ends up on the GZ site. Maybe if we don’t, whatever goes up there becomes the #1 terror target. Maybe if the gooberment lets them build it becomes the #1 target for patriotic US Americans as such.
This is a great quote and even more true today than it was perhaps in the darkest hours of WWII.
I asked the fools "What do you think about Iran slaughtering homosexuals and stoning women to death?"
They are either on drugs or mentally ill. You cannot argue with a liberal as they don't have logic.
They know muslim good, Christian bad. Sadly, they are getting fed this crap from DAily Kos and Huffington Post and are completely clueless about the multiple attacks by radical ISlam on the US.
Fort Hood, underwear bomber, Times Square and I'm sure there were other incidents we never heard about.
“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!
We must remember this statement.
This quote from Winston Churchill needs to be spread near and far. It will be my battle call. We need to lock arms and be resolved to fight.
We citizens of the United States must have the fire in the belly to stand up and fight for our country. We can never be reminded enough of this powerful statement by Winston Churchill. Pass it on.
So far they seem to be having trouble letting the Greek Orthodox Church that was destroyed on 9-11, rebuild. Just sayin.
