Protest held at NYC Building Site for Islam center and mosque
Today there were crowds of Americans protesting the NYC site where an Islam center and mosque is supposed to be constructed.
A mosque is a church for the people who worship Allah and believe that in order to reach him they must kill, destroy and wipe out their enemies in the name of religion if they feel their enemies are not following the Quran.
Death is not feared by Islam followers. I's a welcome path to eternal love in the eyes of most Muslims.
This morning demonstrators against the construction carried signs that associated Islam with blood and the other supporters in favor of the new mosque shouted, "Say no to racist fear!"
Two construction project supervisors defended their plans but one suggested that his organization may look for an alternative site.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, said during his Middle East trip that "the attention generated by the project is actually positive and I hope it will bring a greater understanding to Americans."
Opponents of the $100 million project two blocks from the World Trade Center site appeared to outnumber supporters. Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" blared over loudspeakers as mosque opponents chanted, "No mosque, no way!" Signs hoisted by dozens of protesters standing behind police barricades read "SHARIA" - using dripping, blood-red letters to describe Islam's Shariah law, which governs the behavior of Muslims.
