Here Michael Coren, perhaps one of the Great White North’s most sane voices of reason, tries to make some sense of the Ground Zero victory mosque.
“The fact that they are allowed to build this mosque says a lot about the U.S. The fact that Muslims will build it says a lot about them.”
“The whole idea behind it [the mosque] being a ‘communal center’ is just pulling one over on the non-Muslim world. It will be a MOSQUE.”
The Greek Orthodox Church was denied permission to build a church close to Ground Zero, yet Islam can build a mosque for the sake of “reconciliation.” That says it all, no? And who do the mosque developers think they’re reconciling with by erecting this victory mosque? Certainly not with those opposed to the mosque! Muslims are only antagonizing them. That just leaves the Liberals who favor it. Except no reconciliation was ever required with them! Islam had Liberals at hello. So once we dispense with “reconciliation” as the facile and disingenuous excuse it really is, then that leaves only one other motive to build it– victory.
