New York - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate a mosque that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.

Bloomberg was asked Monday about GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio’s demands last week that Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo investigate the mosque being developed near the Sept. 11 attack site.

The mayor has defended the mosque plans before. On Monday, he said investigating or vetting religious organizations goes against what the nation stands for.

Lazio has refused to say whether he opposes the mosque being built near the site. He said he is concerned that not enough is known about the funding sources.

Cuomo has said he supports the project. Bloomberg is a Republican-turned-independent.

He's right. The American way is taxing the hell out of people.
I'm amazed he has more respect for the Mosque than for the shuls in Brighton where he signed a law allowing loud music to interfere with the davening.

It's un-American to let them build a mosque so close to the World Trade Center site.

A scholar and charity head appointed to President Obama's White House Fellowships Commission is closely tied to the Muslim leaders behind a proposed controversial Islamic cultural center to be built near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. The White House fellow, Vartan Gregorian, is president of Carnegie Corp. of New York. Gregorian also serves on the board of the Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum. The museum is reportedly working with the American Society for Muslim Advancement, whose leaders are behind the mosque, to ensure the future museum will represent the voices of American Muslims.

He seems to forget that we declared our independent from England because of unfair taxation, not because they were discriminating against terrorists.

Hakaras Hatov? How about hakaras Harah how they are treating us now. And are you so sure this is only an issue on how to present the past vs how it reflects on the future?

The fundamental question that first must be asked is whether this is truly a religious organization.

Leave it to an American Jewish secular to try gefel for non-Jews. This puts us in the worst kind of danger, this pandering to dangerous people.
And if a frum couple stole welfare, owns up and repays, it gets reaction from bloggers ten times worse than this pandering to our enemies which is a million times more dangerous to America.

#5, have you ever picked up a Rambam? Jews were persecuted in Muslim lands, as much as in Christian lands. There is this fable that before the state of Israel was created, Arabs lived peacefully among their Jewish counterparts. When you visit the Tomb of Rachel, The cave of the patriarch's, The Western Wall, you see that every holy site that belonged to Jews, has now been turned into a Mosque. While the crusaders tore apart towns in Europe, the Almahads were destroying cities in Spain. The Arabs were never good to the Jews, so let's not forget that.
