"The Landmarks Preservation Commission gave the thumbs down this morning to giving a lower Manhattan building historic status -- paving the way for a controversial new mosque to open just blocks from Ground Zero.
The 9-0 vote opens the door for the demolition of the 152-year-old building on Park Place, where construction is planned for the mosque."
I think this is a good decision. The US needs to learn that Islam does not equal Terrorist. Could there be some nefarious goings on there? Possibly. But it is just as possible to find the same type of "goings on" in a synagogue or church.
All Christians are not White Supremacists or Black Panthers.
All Jews are not Zionist.
All Muslims are not Terrorists.
