Ground Zero Mosque On The Move? (Opponents To Meet With Developers On Troubling Issue)
Drudge/CBS ^ | 8-17-2010 | Wire

Posted on 08/18/2010 1:26:59 AM PDT by wardaddy

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 governor’s message to the developers has been one of hopeful understanding.

“I hope that they type of cultural understanding that they’re trying to promote when they build the center could be practiced right now,” Paterson said.

Sources tell CBS 2’s 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 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.

They don't need to give them state land for the mosque, let Soros buy them a different property- his family certainly has the money. He can do it for his buddy Bennett, the cofounder of the project.

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.

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.

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 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. “

Wow, a dimmi saying the right thing. As for the state giving them land to build the mosque, I would hope that what they are actually doing is selling the land and not giving it, but this is blue New York. If they get land for free from New York somewhere in downtown Manhatten and then turn around and sell this land, there is something seriously wrong here....

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.

" . . . to offer them state land . . . "

For free or what? Or is this a way for the muzzies to get free land to build a church?

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 was arguing with libtards on Amazon.com and just came to the conclusion that liberalism is a mental disorder like Michael Savage states.

I asked the fools "What do you think about Iran slaughtering homosexuals and stoning women to death?"

Silence.

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.

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.
