Hi Caribbeanrose, by the way I love your profile name, you are a beautiful rosé, anyway, I cannot help but feel sorry for those folks who spread this horrible rumor, when a worldwide icon is in a very serious condition, in which he needs all the support World wide, that he so deserved.
I fell for the rumor, if his Family didn't contacted us, I should have researched this rumor, horrible, horrible, I almost had a heart Attack, trust me.
I'm not debating the right to practice and build places of worship! The World Trade Center (Ground Zero) is now symbolic of U.S suffering, and people will always think of the cause of the suffering. It's unfortunate for the few who shared in the suffering to be associated with the cause, but the culprits who chose to sacrifice themselves represents hatred of U.S & were Muslims themselves. I still think that by building the Mosque right there at the site of caused devastation, the Muslim peolpe involved are being insensitive to the majority affected. It's as if they are putting a 'stake' or 'marking of pride' in the place of such damage.
