Who is being TOLERANT of those who lost LOVED ONES on 9-11 … America, HAVE WE FORGOTTEN?
58% of New York City voters are against the building of a Muslim mosque near ground zero, while only 20% are in favor. The PC crowd in this country will be the death of us. If it is all about tolerance as the Islamic apologists say, why are the folks who want to place a Mosque in the shadows of “Ground Hero” being tolerant and empathetic of the feelings of those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001? Why isn’t tolerance a two way street?
Most voters in New York (58%) oppose the building of an Islamic mosque near Ground Zero in New York City.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that just 20% favor the building of a mosque near the 9/11 Ground Zero sight, while 21% are not sure. These findings are very similar to those found nationwide.
Some of those in favor of the mosque have argued that it will “honor” the 9/11 victims by promoting the peaceful side of Islam, but 60% of voters in New York lack confidence that this is truly the motivation behind construction. Thirty-one percent (31%) are confident the mosque is being built for this reason. This includes 12% who are Very Confident and 39% who are Not At All Confident.
58% of New Yorkers have NOT FORGOTTEN
Of all places to erect a Muslim mosque … in the shadows of “Ground Zero”? For those who think this is the right thing and nearly 60% of NY’ers find it inappropriate, we have truly FORGOTTEN.
