Yesterday, August 13, President Obama made a move for peace at any price by endorsing "Cordoba House", the downtown New York Mosque, sometimes referred to as the 911 mosque by conservatives who are offended that it's 2 blocks from the hole in the ground that used to be the World Trade Center. President Obama's announcement came as he celebrated the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan with fellow Muslims worldwide!
Today the president clarified his remarks by saying that it wasn't an endorsement, and that it's a 'local issue', protected by the Constitution.
There are a lot of people who live in New York City who should show more appreciation for the events of September 11, 2001. They owe their large pensions and life insurance benefits to the Muslims who flew those planes into the World Trade Center. I'm not saying that it was a right thing to do, but inside every cloud there is a silver lining.
Allowing Muslims to build a monument to Islam demonstrates what this blog is about: PEACE. Islamic people are peaceful people and often refer to their faith as: The Religion of Peace! The conservatives like to beat their drum about how violent Islam is. It's only violent toward non-Muslims (Infidels), Muslims who don't embrace the correct interpretation of Islam and Muslims who violate Sharia Law. Everyone else is under the umbrella of peace and can live without fear.
