How far is too far when it comes to us making to changes so as to appease the terrorists???

The Imam behind the Mosque near Ground Zero came out today and said NOW it cant be moved because it would embolden the terrorists. The pastor in FL couldn't burn the Quran (I dont agree with burning holy books EITHER but go with me here) because it would enrage the terrorists more. Now we have had 2 weeks of coverage of that Pastor and MANY arguments to not do it so as not to embolden them.

Have we now handed the terrorists a weapon? Have we now made it to where there are things we will change HERE in OUR rights and freedoms so as not to anger them? How far before we say NO we will NOT make our choices based their reactions??

  • How that moronic parson with severe brain damage ever managed to make the news 2 counties over is a question I'd like to put to every news editor who has even allowed it on the page. It's like having a media storm about a 2 year old who picks his nose. Who cares? Shut up and talk about real news.

    Oooh, look, a crazy, radical who couldn't form two correctly-spelled sentences much less evaluate a critical argument with the help of two Lifelines... wow, yeah, that's totally news --let's talk about what he has to say. Can't we get him to write for some fabulously credible newspaper, like Weekly World News? Maybe he could share a desk with Bat Boy.

  • We made no changes to appease any terrorists.


    It was a bad idea because it would further our soldiers already in harms way

  • We have not appeased anyone. We showed that we are not prejudiced against religions when we to objected to the idiot preacher's plan to burn a quran.

  • He wasnt stopped by our govt but he WAS stopped. Come on. Really?? Bibles have been burned. Imagesof Jesus completely defaced....but the cartoonists that as going to submit cartoons of Allah on FB was reamed right and left for the danger she was causing! And the threats against that newspaper that printed the political cartoons hasnt printed another out of fear! Hell, SouthPark changed ITS episodes so as not to provoke these peopl! Changes ARE being made ALL THE TIME to appease these terrorists. EVEN that IMAM is using that THREAT as an excuse in his Mosque argument! It IS happening!! I just wonder gfor HOW long and HOW FAR??

    I find this very interesting. Specifically because not allowing private property owners to build a building they want to build solely because some people will have hurt feelings over it stepping on the property owners RIGHTS and FREEDOMS. It's also asking the property owner to make a choice based on other people's reactions. The 2 very things you seem to be so adamantly against are the very things causing the problems.

  • I'm glad their is someone else out there who sees this for what it really is. I won't go as far to say this Imam is doing this with a specific purpose but it has crossed my mind. He, if anyone should know his statements have given these radical creeps just what they need to do just what he says.
    I can't believe some Americans are playing right into his hands. This whole situation isn't good for America.

  • Nonna I dont advocate ANY violence against those wanting to build there. I would just like if they didnt do it. And NO ONE has a problem with PEACEFUL and NON VIOLENT protests to something. They dont LIKE their religious things defaced or ridiculed they have EVER RIGHT to protest and yell and scream...but NOT KILL. They are two completely different reactions. and SHOULD someone become violent about the Mosque I would be the FIRST ONE to stand and say that WRONG!

  • Yes, but burning Quran's isn't advocating violence either. All this talk of rights and freedoms, but yet you don't want someone to build something on their own private property just because you don't want them to. Isn't that also asking the property owner to make a choice based on your reaction and the reaction of others? How is that really any better than those you're trying to criticize? Sure, you're not threatening violence. BUT that doesn't mean that you're using the same tactics to get your way.

    And it's a cultural center, not a mosque.
