WTC mosque approved

A NYC community board has approved, 29-1, a mosque to be built at the WTC site. Even though, the vote isn't binding, this is still a massive travesty.

Don't the board members know that ALL of the 9/11 hijackers were muslim. I suppose if there was a proposal to build a church or a temple on the WTC site there would be massive protests and such.

After four hours of public debate, members of Community Board 1 finally voted 29-1 in support of the project. Nine members abstained, arguing that they wanted to table the issue and vote at a later date.

The board has no official say over whether the estimated $100 million mosque and community center gets built. But the panel's support, or lack of it, is considered important in influencing public opinion.

"I do have a problem with having a mosque on top of the site where [terrorists] can gloat about what they did," said Santora, with his wife, Maureen, by his side.
