Is the Controversial Mosque on the Move Away from Ground Zero? (UPDATE: Nope, Developers Refuse)


It is being reported that the mosque that is supposed to be built near Ground Zero might be on the move. Discussions are to take place as to a possible compromise location for the mosque away from the close proximity of Ground Zero. I must say, I am a bit skeptical as well of such a compromise as there was a purpose behind building this mosque so close to Ground Zero in the first place.

However, who would have ever imagined that President Obama would take leadership classes from NY Governor David Paterson? Obama messes up the mosque controversy and makes the matter worse while Gov. Paterson actually looks for compromise solutions … in a word for Barack Hussein Obama, nice leadership.


Paterson (rt), Obama (left) … who’s the statesman?

There was a possible resolution in the works in the debate surrounding the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center near ground zero.

CBS 2?s Marcia Kramer has learned it looks as if the developers of the mosque may be willing to budge and move away from the Park 51 location where they originally planned the construction.

So will the mosque be moving?

New York Gov. David Paterson plans to meet with developers of the controversial Ground Zero mosque as early as this week to offer them state land – at another location – for their cultural and religious center. Paterson told Congressman Peter King about the meeting, and King said the governor asked him to make it public.

The purpose of the meeting would be for the governor to discuss with the leaders of the mosque where state property is available,” said Rep. King. “Whether or not people from the mosque would be willing to consider that property.”

Who ever would have thought at New York Governor Paterson would have been the voice of reason in the mosque controversy? While NYC Bloomberg and President Obama act with no compassion for 9-11 victims families with their wrongful position that this is only about Freedom of Religion … Gov. Paterson steps in and acts like a statesman. Who would have thunk it? Although it appear that Paterson is fearful of behind the scene games from Bloomberg and Obama. 

Sources tell CBS 2’s Kramer that Gov. Paterson is concerned that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of putting the mosque at ground zero, and President Barack Obama, might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.

Isn’t this interesting, Obama is OK with Harry Reid’s opposition of The One’s position on the building of a mosque near Ground Zero. What, you mean that Reid is not a racist?Maybe Reid is really a Tea Party candidate in disguise? [editors joke] I thought every one who disagreed with Obama on his policies, positions and agenda was branded a racist? Get the comment from Obama’s mouth piece, Obama respects the right of anybody only on “this”.

Obama “respects the right of anybody — Democrat, Republican, independent — to disagree with his opinion on this,” White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters Tuesday.

So as the Weekly Standard writes, Is this the beginning of the end for the Ground Zero mosque?

UPDATE I: Mosque Developer Rejects Moving to New Location.

Appears that the developers have no plans to compromise and move the controversial mosque away from Ground Zero. Americans might want to ask themselves, why is that?

The developer of an Islamic cultural center that would include a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero appear to have rejected Gov. David Paterson’s offer to help them find a different site but a meeting may still be in the works.

On Tuesday, Rep. Peter King said he learned the governor planned to speak with the imam and developers of the mosque and cultural center later this week.  Both King and Paterson are scheduled to discuss the issue on Larry King Live tonight.

      Nice work, gov.Patterson! Victory and respect for the 9/11 families and USA. The only thing that bugs me a bit: the sate of NY got involved – separation of church and sate.

      I still recommend some reading (for those who haven’t gotten this insight, yet) on the following that this mosque is not really needed there:

    2. Paula on August 18th, 2010 2:44 pm

      Wasn’t too long ago that Obama, is his arrogant and snarky way, publicly humiliated Paterson. It was disgusting for the President to behave that way.

    3. Greg the Mongoose on August 18th, 2010 3:10 pm

      “Pelosi Suggests Probe of Funding Sources Behind Opposition to Mosque Near Ground Zero” Shes coming for me. Might be my last post?

    4. PA Mom on August 18th, 2010 8:06 pm

      This is just outrageous. Why are we even considering donating this land for religious us? I thought that there was a separation of church and state. I guess that separation is only available to the Democrats for their choosing. Shouldn’t we be working on the monument to lost Americans at ground zero. Since when are the American people considered a group of conspirators? These are the issues that need to be brought up in November along with jobs and the economy.

    5. PA Mom on August 18th, 2010 8:10 pm

      Sorry for my bad spelling in the first sentence. Should be use not us. I thank the scared monkeys for giving me the opportunity to voice my opinion and hear what other people have to say.

    6. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 4:31 am

      funny how that seperation works

      is Islam the only 1?

      (considering the christian posts/views)
      SM: the building of this mosque has nothing to do with religion. There are 1000′s of mosque’s throught out the US. Sorry, if we are holding Muslims feet to the fire and asking them to use some compassion. It’s time for Muslims to step up to the table.

    7. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 6:57 am

      k, so every Catholic is a childmolesting, robbing and cheating sob?

      if we are going to throw it all in groups?

      and what is the difference between an Christian American, Muslim American, Jewish American?

      or does having the Islamic faith make you less American?
      SM: Cut the nonsense … if you cannot understand that it is in such poor taste to build a mosque right there near Ground Zero, you do not undersatnd September 11, 2001. 3000 people were murdered and the last thing that is needed for the healing of these families is a mosque built there as a so-called bridge of compassion. BS!!!

      Is it really that big an issue for the developers to move the mosque just a little ways away? No it is not. But when you hear that the developers refuse and and plan to take $’s from Iran and Saudi Arabia I think we see exactly what their vision really is.

      Please do not insult the families of people who lost loved ones and folks like me who knew people who were killed and had school mates who dies that fateful day.

      I don’t remember seeing and Japanese temples at Pearl harbor, do you?

    8. Greg the Mongoose on August 19th, 2010 7:08 am

      One hundred Mosques in NYC already. The Greek Orthodox church that was destroyed at ground zero has been blocked to rebuild. The port Authority said a deal was offered to the The Greek Orthodox church, but they declined. The head of the church says what deal? No deal was offered. You would think the Greek church would have been green lighted to rebuild? Welcome to the newest Muslim controlled city in a America. Allah New York.

    9. Rusty Bridges on August 19th, 2010 8:31 am

      There is no “seperation of church and state” in the Constitution or Bill of Rights, that is a communist lie to deny people the right of religion. There is no state sanctioned religion that people must abide by.

      The First Amendment to the United States Constitution reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . .

      They can exercise their “religion”, just down the road.

    10. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 8:32 am

      it isn’t about the Mosque

      it is about all of you sayng that every Muslim is a terrorist.

      and the US has been taking ony from the Saudis for ages (ask the Bush family).

      and it is highly doubtfull that Iran’s money is going to be accepted

    11. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 8:33 am

      ad isn’t it capitalism if the developers want to build it?

    12. Ladylobo on August 19th, 2010 9:15 am

      Send them back to their own country and let them build a mosque anywhere! They can take an illegal
      with them. We don’t need to be an extension of the Middle East or Mexico!

    13. A Texas Grandfather on August 19th, 2010 9:43 am

      This mosque is designed to be a victory symbol for the radical muslims to show that they were able to take down two major buildings in NYC and kill almost 3,000 people in the name of Allah.

      What real relegion does something like that?

      The thing that the American people have to come to understand is that the muslims and their so-called relegion are all about controlling the world through the use of whatever means they can devise.

    14. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 11:09 am

      k, swipe muslim with jew

      and start speaking German bitte

    15. super dave on August 19th, 2010 12:09 pm

      #11: you’ve lost the point long ago.

    16. Dolf on August 19th, 2010 4:03 pm

      when I read what I read here sometimes, I am glad I am not looking for “the point”.

    17. Brenda in Virginia on August 19th, 2010 6:08 pm

      Dear Dork/Dolf,

      Here’s an example of your precious Islamic Law in the works. No doubt you completely agree when they demand this law become America’s law.

      CAIRO (AP) — A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man’s spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, the brother of the victim said Thursday.

      Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralyzed and subsequently lost a foot after a fight more than two years ago. He asked a judge in northwestern Tabuk province to impose an equivalent punishment on his attacker under Islamic law, his brother Khaled al-Mutairi told The Associated Press by telephone from there.

      Khaled al-Mutairi said his family is not interested in blood money, and would be ready to send the attacker abroad to perform the operation if it were not possible in the kingdom.

      Human rights group say trials in Saudi Arabia fall far below international standards. They usually take place behind closed doors and without adequate legal representation.

      Those who are sentenced to death are often not informed of the progress of legal proceedings against them or of the date of execution until the morning on which they are taken out and beheaded.

      “We are asking for our legal right under Islamic law,” the brother said. “There is no better word than God’s word — an eye for an eye.”

      Islamic law applied in Saudi Arabia allows defendants to ask for a similar punishment for harms inflicted on them. Cutting off the hands of thieves, for example, is common.

      Under the law, the victim can receive a blood money to settle the case.

      The brother said the judge asked at least two hospitals for a medical opinion on whether surgeons could render the attacker’s spinal cord nonfunctional. He and Saudi newspaper reports did not identify the attacker.


      Cool, huh Dork?

    18. Dolf on August 20th, 2010 1:41 am

      my precious Sharia laws?

      oh those ones of US close allie Saudi Arabia?

      think your forgetting the raped woman who was stoned to death because she was raped.

      and the list goes on and on.

      and besides of the swearing (dork??, still in highschool??)

      and they can demand all they want…we have a thing called constitution….doesn’t the US have that too??????

    19. Dolf on August 20th, 2010 1:42 am

      and you are missing the point, but no problems..du hast es nicht gewust……

    20. Brenda on August 20th, 2010 7:31 am

      Oh poor old Dork. As if the Constitution matters to Obama. Please…go back to class, Special Education I’m sure….

    21. Brenda on August 20th, 2010 7:33 am

      As for Saudi being an allie, seeing Obamanation (your god) is willing to meet with Hamas…I’ll take Saudi over that ANY day. But understand you prefer he hang with Hamas.

    22. Dolf on August 20th, 2010 8:21 am

      you assume pretty much.

      to bad its all bs, like most your ranting.
      and…please get some education!

      or did they kick you out of school when you were knocked up at age 16?

    23. Dolf on August 20th, 2010 8:49 am

      sie note:

      al the horrific nasty Sharia stuff is happening in Iran andSaudi Arabia, not in Libanon and/or Palestine.

    24. Brenda on August 20th, 2010 11:41 am

      No dork, they did not kick me out like you. I have a degree in systems analysis and work from home supporting mainframes, iSeries, and doing network support. And you do what??????

    25. Brenda on August 20th, 2010 11:42 am

      By the way dork, what’s Libanon? Never heard of it. Something you learned in your special ed class?

    26. Dolf on August 24th, 2010 2:23 am

      Libanon…a small country next to Israel.

      Used to be 1 of the most beautifull cities in that area, however after years of gruelsome civil war…its in shambels.

      You also might know it from the suicide attacks on US Marines and French troops in the 80ties.

      Good show of your knowledge…………
      SM: So what’s your point Dolf, yes I know Lebenon well, I had a cousin who was a Marine stationed there in the building that was blown up. Lebanon has been screwed with by Syria for years. That is why they can blame their downfall on.

    27. Dolf on August 24th, 2010 9:20 am

      true., some nasty shit happened/is happening there

      point was trying to educate brenda who missed outon history class..I presume that they do teach about what happened there?

    28. alansark on September 9th, 2010 5:35 pm

      Take a good hard look at yourselves?

      maligning muslims as terrorists?
      maligning Islam as the cause of 911?

      How many muslims died on 911 in the buildings?
      how many muslims have been butchered, slaughterd as if they were like mosquitos in Iraq & Afghanistan by America.

      How many muslim girls were raped in Iraq and Afghanistan alone by Americans?

      America stands for not allowing the practice of religous freedom.

      Take a leaf out of Thomas Jefferson he was a great academic and scholar who saw great wisdom in the Qu’ran.

      Americans who find burn ing a Qu’ran is a statement of ….I don’t know what it signifies.

      but take a good hard look at yourselves America – the Neo Cons have not only take away your liberties but taken away “being American”.

      Absolute nonsense – garabage that comes out of Americans is making Americans the most disliked people on the planet.

      you have only yourselves to blame because you act like sheep.

      Don’t be ignorant, dumb or blind restore the honour to United States of America.

      It begins with you the ordinary people.

      America is a police state, a fascist state thats how you all are behaving.

      Don’t create hate and create divides, if anyone needs to mend bridges for 10 yrs of carnage and mayhem, destruction it is the United States of America hopelessly held hostage on Neo Con radicalised Imperial agenda.

      Americans you can read yes?
      Go buy yourselg a book the “gran hess board” by Zbigniew Brzezinski – a elitist NWO agent written in the 1990′s.

      His book was the roadmap for Neo Con policy making and policy writing in the infamous Zionist think tank project for the New American Century.

      It became the blue print for the neo Con Imperial Agenda that begins in hegemony in central asia.

      Blame yourselves for being mislead, look at yourselves.

      Do not blame 1.5 billion people and growing across the world.

      I know there is still good left in America – just dont let big brother control you.

      I will leave you in the semitic word for Peace;

      Ashalom Aleykom – Language of Christ – Aramaic and Moses.
      Assalam Alaykum in the language of muslims in the Arabic.
      SM: Take a good look at the following:
      Not all Muslims are terrorist; however, all Terrorist on 9/11 were Muslims.

      That is a fact.

      Also, spare of the preachings of the Ground Zero Mosque Emam about tolerance from the most intolerant religion there is.

    29. alansark on September 9th, 2010 5:40 pm

      The book I asked you to go out and buy, was The Grand Chessboard by zbigniew brzezinski an agent of the NWO who was ana dviser to Bush and Co and Obama.

      His hands are in all major hegemnic conflicts involving America – including 9/11 and the bull shit W.O.T.

      Wake up America.

      People are people blod and bone the same the world over and Americans on an atomic level are great people but you are being let down on a collective level by policies of a archaic brutal group of people who Abraham Lincoln warned you about a clique of private bankers.

      You know who I mean.
      SM: Conspiracy therorist unite … geez
