Exactly how far can you build a mosque from Ground Zero? | The Daily Caller
via Greg Sargent at Plum Line. Greg Moody of The Daily Caller asks how far is far enough and gets the tired old obfuscations.
Many of the project’s prominent critics have said that Park51, the group heading up the site, is building the Muslim community center “too close” to Ground Zero. However, few of them have specified, (even when pressed), just how far away the mosque needs to be in order to receive their approval. Many of them oppose it on grounds that it is insensitive to the memory of those who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. But when asked to suggest a specific distance that the site needs to be from Ground Zero, few are willing to elaborate further.
