In tonight's CNN broadcast, "The Imam," (which I'm sure is code for 'Mr. Miami'), told Soledad that if "we don't go through with the building of the mosque two blocks from Ground Zero it will incite extremist events throughout the world" (paraphrasing a bit, but not off fact). This is in effect another act of fear mongering and blatant thuggery in a three piece suit, which is common practice among any religious group, no matter how perfected they choose to perceive themselves.
He admits to working for the Bush Administration, which is equally troubling, as anyone knows trying to save face by reminding us of his implication with one of the worst administrations on record is not a recommended strategy to gain public appeal these days. The whole idea is a distraction this nation cannot afford at this juncture. To profess that the psychic welfare of the nation is at stake, and that the building of the mosque would directly benefit us as a culture is pure fallacy. America's wounds have notoriously taken long to heal, if ever. To simply buy a license through a real estate loophole and proclaim the nation's readiness to evolve together into an even more religiously tolerant society is ludicrous. Religion is on the way out. The polls say so, the arts, music, the whole online world... We are gaining nearly miraculous amounts of information as a world group like never before, and religion has become more sectarian than ever now. Yet you want to set up shop and see what shakes.
So, Mr. Miami aka The Imam, take a little time out tonight and consider this, to be fair you should show up on the doorstep of the proposed site and listen to each and every one of these so called 'Radicalized' Americans. If after that, you still want build this thing then, my friend, you are truly one perfected piece of work.
