Argument: Park51 only offensive if you think all Muslims responsible for 9/11

Issue Report: Ground zero mosque


“Build that mosque.” Economist, Lexington. August 5th, 2010: “True, some relatives of 9/11 victims are hurt by the idea of a mosque going up near the site. But that feeling of hurt makes sense only if they too buy the false idea that Muslims in general were perpetrators of the crime.”

The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent: “[O]pposition to this mosque appears to be all about insidiously linking the mosque builders with the 9/11 attackers, and by extension, to revive passions surrounding 9/11. To oppose the mosque is to capitulate to — and validate — this program. On this one, you’re either with the bigots or you’re against them.”
