Shocking: Supporters of Ground Zero Mosque to Protest on September 11th

This is a slap in the face. The supporters of the Ground Zero Mosque are planning something that is insulting to everyone who suffered in the September 11th atrocities. In a crass move, a protest is planned on the ninth anniversary of the murders even as the site's Twitter feed asks for contributions:

The Cordoba Initiative needs your help!!! Please donate on our website and help support our programs that focus on [peace, tolerance, and understanding!]
The protests come as those against the project will also be speaking out:

Muslim and Arab-American groups will meet later this week to discuss how to mark the anniversary, which could coincide with the Muslim holiday marking the endof the holy month of Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr.

"We're not going to do (a rally) across the street. That's not the approach that we're doing," said Linda Sarsour, the director of the Arab American Association of New York.

She said the coalition is considering a large community service project, interfaith dinner and other events to promote understanding.

This Sunday, groups for and against the centre are also planning marches in downtown Manhattan.
This is a seriously bad idea to have a protest on that day in lower Manhattan, even with a cultural dinner and other related ideas. The march will also serve to marginalize the moderate Islamic community, seeming like the mosque is being forced upon us on September 11th, of all days.

Matthew, you need to calm the hell down. Muslims are Americans too and none of them attacked the World Trade Center. Their plans to commemorate 9/11 sound great to me - we all could use more peace and understanding.

This Frye character needs to pull his head out of the sand! Although, if he keeps it buried and his eyes closed, he can continue to live in his fantasy world where everybody loves everybody, the sun is always get the picture!
