It seems this issue it very controversial and has attracted international attention. Muslims wish to build a 13 story Mosque and Cultural Center near Ground Zero in tribute to honor the fallen of 9-11. Some people are raising concerns that this is not in tribute or to honor the fallen but as a symbol of Islamic supremacy and victory. I wish to raise the issue that every American should be aware and decide for themselves.

No mosque at Ground Zero
My personal opinion in one sentence: Of course Muslims have the right to build the Mosque & Cultural Center, but why not be sensitive to the victims of 9-11 and be satisfied with the mosque already built just 686 feet further.
