Ohhhhhhhh, shot over the bow.  Is that a threat?  Americans do not do threats very well.  Bad move, Faisal.

If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse, the headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it. The battlefront is between moderates of all sides… and the radicals on all sides.”

Rauf’s argument is weak and unacceptable.  Stating that moving the Ground Zero mosque is a threat to our national security is a warning to all Americans.  In other words, if we refuse to allow that Muslims to build their doha within a hair’s breadth of the former World Trade Center site where nearly 3000 Americans died on September 11, 2001, we will pay.

My response to a very open threat.  NO MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO!
