Cordoba House Rejects Meeting with Paterson About Moving
The developers of Cordoba House (which is not a “Ground Zero Mega-Mosque”) have rejected NY Gov. David Paterson’s craven offer to help them capitulate to the tide of anti-Muslim bigotry: Mosque Developer Rejects Meeting With Paterson.
The developers of an Islamic cultural center that would include a mosque near Ground Zero have rejected�Gov.�David Paterson’s�offer to help them find a different site.
Paterson said today the group�is apparently�committed to building in the proposed site.�”I think they would like to stay where they are, and I certainly respect that and I certainly respect them,” �Paterson said.
But, Paterson said the dialogue would have been useful as the project has ignited nationwide debate over freedom of religion and anger over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.. “Having said that, how much more foresighted would it have been if the Imam who is the developer of the project had been willing to hear what we are actually talking about?”
What you’re “talking about,” Gov. Paterson, is surrendering to the demands of a lynch mob.
