This whole thing over the NYC mosque is being blown out of proportion. All this media coverage is just ridiculous. The bottom line is that the Muslims have the constitutional right to place that mosque there. Period. End of story. However, given that the hijackers of the airplanes that crashed into the twin towers were Muslim, there are some bad feelings toward Muslims. Although Muslims have the constitutional right to place a mosque where they want to place it, I think they should be sensitive to the locals and probably move the mosque to a location that isn't so close to the site of the twin towers. Having some sensitivity to the placement of that mosque will probably go a long way to healing the wounds that have been created. Like I said, they do have the right to place the mosque there, but they should probably move it to a different location.
