    This Post does not have the Intention to insult Islam, I wish all Muslims a happy Ramadan. Its just a Poll to see what you guys (no matter if Christians,Jews,Muslims,Hindus, Buddhist and Atheists) think. Besides, in my opinion we are all Brothers and Sisters. Peace

    I don't think it should be built. I read an article in a newspaper saying even some people of the muslim religion don't want it.

    People that honestly believe the goal of the terroristic attacks of 9/11 was to build a mosque near Ground Zero are idiots.

    EDIT: Seems like so far, I'm the only person to say 'Yes', too.

    I don't think the goal of the attack was to build the mosque, but I still don't think it's right.

    I don't think it's a good idea. I don't think that there were any plans to the 9/11 attack to build a mosque (who does that anyway?).
    But I do think that the people affected by the attack might hold a grudge against muslims (Even if far from all muslims thinks that the attack was a good idea, i'm not saying anything like that) and a mosque at ground zero is like literary strew salt in an open wound.

    Feel free to build a mosque anywhere BUT in that place.

    Muslim extremists attack USA -> crash planes into twin towers -> build muslim mosque close to that place....... just no....

    There's no reason why it shouldn't be built. This is just blowback from Islamophobia

    It seems rather...inappropriate, to be honest. Look at Issac's Idea. It's a bit like -snippy- . It is inappropriate. Many muslims, no offence, get converted into extremists via mosques, and that would probably be the last place for one to be built.
    It's for racial harmony and safety. Every time you'd see that mosque, you'd think of extremism.

    EDIT: I read back and I find it may have been slightly offensive. Sorry.

    Im against it, even I have muslim friends and my girl comes originally from a Muslim Country not to mention the over 60 victims of the 9/11 attack which are Muslims etc. It feels wrong and inappropriate, not that I believe that most Muslims would feel spiteful - thats for sure not the case and I even doubt that terrorists will use the mosque as a propaganda -, but why not building the mosque in an other area? It looks like this people just wanted media attention and make the USA or "the Western-World" look like a fool.

    Untrue.

    EDIT: Oh, and as many have missed in my first post: it's not ON Ground Zero, but NEAR. It's TWO BLOCKS AWAY from Ground Zero.

    Of course they should allow it. What, every time some nutter thinks the god of the bible is telling him to kill prostitutes are you going to ban churches for five blocks?

    So you are saying that Islam is the motive behind the attacks? That is like saying because gay pornography is not something to be viewed by kids, therefore no homosexuals should be allowed to go to school. The good old American way of thinking huh?

    9/11 was fake
    it was done to make islam look bad
    this is all a setup done by bush/administration
    i saw this video (i cant find it in my email, but if someone wants to see it, ill look for it)
    it showed how the 9/11 was fake and it couldn't have been done naturally
    if a plane crashed on the 80-90 floor and it bust there, how is the damn building supposed to FALL

    like what the heck
    it was made of steel and steel melts at about 1370 degrees C (2500 F)
    and fuel burns at 800-1200 C
    ok even if the burning fuel melted the steel
    it could've only melted about till 70th floor and it was supposed to fall sideways, not downwards (PHYSICS)
    and what happened was that it fell down
    HOW??
    the only way it could've was from bombs planted in the basement or 1st floor


    IT ALL FAKE
    to make islam/muslims look bad


    on topic: yes i think it should be built on ground zero
    its the least america can give us considering all the blame was put on us

    Not there, definitely not there.
    Build it somewhere else, or better, don't build it all.

    Turn around...
    It's a dumb idea to put a mosque on a place where muslim extremists destroyed these buildings and killed a shitload of people. Of course there is a big difference between extremists and muslims, but it's just weird to build a place where they honour Allah on a location where one of the biggest terrorist attacks took place, and where the Islamic religion may have played a role.

    It will only divide people even further. Plus those muslim's safety may be at risk. All it takes is one jackass who feels the need to take revenge (something like you destroyed the twin towers, I destroy the mosque). That should increase tensions between muslims and none-muslims.

    Just put it somewhere else if it really needs to be build...

    oh not this conspiracy theory crap.

    Of course they should be allowed to build it. I want them to build it! If you guys didn't notice as Americans we have to practice this thing called "Religious Freedom." To not allow them to build that mosque on the land that they own would be unconstitutional. It doesn't matter if its by ground zero. This is just prejudice against muslims because most americans are to stupid to see muslims=/=terrorists.

    Steel looses its integrity at less than half that temperature. Play-doh is a solid, and the twin towers weight approximately 300 thousand tonnes. I don't think play-doh can support hundreds of thousands of tonnes.
