Ground Zero Mosque’s Muslim Opponents

From: Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT)

Defenders of the proposed Ground Zero mosque are quick to write off opponents as bigots simply out to stir up hatred of Muslims.While some of the rhetoric is excessive, the blanket dismissal hides a more difficult challenge for mosque advocates: A growing number of Muslims openly oppose the project too. Some agree it’s the wrong place, while others are increasingly critical of what they see as tone-deaf and clumsy leadership from mosque planners.

…An American Muslim, one who believes in his or her American identity first, could not possibly hope to do that near the place where fellow citizens were murdered by Islamic mobsters seeking vanity and infamy for their crimes.”
