What Do the Families of the 9/11 Dead Think About the Mosque?

The Corner has the statement from their spokesperson, Debra Burlingame.  The 9/11 Families site is here.
Muslims have worshipped in New York without incident both before and after the attacks of 9/11. This controversy is not about religious freedom. 9/11 was more than a “deeply traumatic event,” it was an act of war. Building a 15-story mosque at Ground Zero is a deliberately provocative act that will precipitate more bloodshed in the name of Allah. Those who continue to target and kill American civilians and U.S. troops will see it as a symbol of their historic progress at the site of their most bloody victory. Demolishing a building that was damaged by wreckage from one of the hijacked planes in order to build a mosque and Islamic Center will further energize those who regard it as a ratification of their violent and divinely ordered mission: the spread of shariah law and its subjugation of all free people, including secular Muslims who come to this country fleeing that medieval ideology, which destroys lives and crushes the human spirit.
In other words, President Obama, you don't know what you're talking about.

You sicken me. Go read the Constitution for once in your life.

You and all your cowardly conservative/republican friends truly hate America. You want to tear up the document this country was founded on because of your sad, cowering fear of "other people."

Take your Xenophobic self to another country where they don't value freedom as much as this country does.

Amazing how almost all of the negative comments are anonymous.

I did read the Constitution - the first time, in 9th grade Civics - that's that old-fashioned course that attempts to build up patriotism in vulnerable children (Oh, the HORROR!).

I don't fear generic "other people", but I do have a legitimate fear of those who say "we will destroy your civilization" and "we will kill the infidel".

We're talking about SENSITIVITY - you know, that wonderful liberal notion when applied to minorities and gays, but a TERRIBLE idea when applied to the rest of us, who have no important feelings.

BTW, they are STILL recovering body parts from the site.

But, hey, let's set up a party center!

Watch this and then try and tell me Conservatives aren't the biggest hypocrites in the world.
