“A Monument to Terrorists”
One News Network is claiming that the Ground Zero Victory Mosque will be “a monument to terrorists.”
FoxNews? Nope, Try Al Arabiya, a TV network based in the United Arab Emirates.
“I can’t imagine that Muslims [actually] want a mosque at this particular location, because it will become an arena for the promoters of hatred, and a monument to those who committed the crime,” wrote Al-Arabiya director Abd Al-Rahman al-Rashid in the column, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute. “Moreover, there are no practicing Muslims in the area who need a place to worship, because it is a commercial district. Is there anyone who is [really] eager [to build] this mosque?”
