We have over 1300+ in the UK and still they want more where I live there is a mosque or temple within a stones throw of each other.

Apparently there are already hundreds of mosques in N.Y so, why do we want another one.

What bugs me about this is that even if they do build, they will not see it as a victory for the rights of minorities over the opinion of the majority but as the will of Allah.

Years ago I used to hang out at the Islamic Center in Los Angeles on Vermont. I found that when Muslims speak in public they will always take the moderate line, but not in private.
