Wanna get angry?

http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2009/12/mysterious-group-buys-building-next-to-ground-zero-for-mosque/

A mysterious Muslim group with unknown sponsors has purchased a building steps away from Ground Zero.

Hudson New York reported:
   An identified group with unknown sponsors has purchased building steps away from where the WorldTrade Center once stood — to turn it into potentially one of the largest New York City mosques.

   At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards away from where Osama Bin Laden’s airborne Islamist bombers killed nearly 3000 people back in 2001.

   The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times — which put the story on its front page Wednesday — that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into ‘’an Islamic center near the city’s most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zero’s more unexpected and striking neighbors.’’
   The 61-year-old Imam said he paid $4.85 million for it — in cash, records show. With 50,000 square feet of air rights and enough financing, he plans an ambitious project of $150 million, he said, akin to the Chautauqua Institution, the 92 Street Y or the Jewish Community Center.

   The origins of such monies are unexplained; neither are the countries or entity advancing such huge donations. Most US mosques, including many in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are funded directly or indirectly by Saudi Arabia the country to which 15 of the 19 hijackers who bombed the World TradeCenter belonged. The UAE, Qatar and Iran are other major sponsors across the USA.

It's incremental. They are forcing our acceptance. Putting it next to ground zero, and conning us into not being pissed off about it is a feather in their wahabist cap.

I'd like to believe they have good intentions, but I don't.

Building mosques on the ruins of their conquests is nothing new.

Last time they did something THIS obnoxious, they built a mosque on a certain rock in Jerusalem.

I hope you're not serious.  I hope your critical thinking skills are better than that.
