NYC Community Board Votes In Favor of Ground Zero Victory Mosque 29-1

But the community board does not have final approval or anything; it seems advisory in nature.

New York City has gone from vowing to never forget to vowing to never remember in just eight and a half years. And this -- this self-inflicted cognitive dysfunction -- is what passes for sophistication in New York.

Angry relatives of 9/11 victims last night clashed with supporters of a planned mosque near Ground Zero at a raucous community-board hearing in Manhattan.

After four hours of public debate, members of Community Board 1 finally voted 29-1 in support of the project. Nine members abstained, arguing that they wanted to table the issue and vote at a later date.

The board has no official say over whether the estimated $100 million mosque and community center gets built. But the panel's support, or lack of it, is considered important in influencing public opinion.

Holding up photos of loved ones killed in the Twin Towers and carrying signs such as, "Honor 3,000, 9/11 -- No mosque!" opponents of the proposed Cordoba House on Park Place called the plan an insult to the terror-attack victims.
"That is a burial ground," said retired FDNY Deputy Chief Al Santora, referring to the fact that victims' remains were scattered for blocks.

Santora's 23-year-old son, Christopher, was the youngest firefighter to die that day.

"I do have a problem with having a mosque on top of the site where [terrorists] can gloat about what they did," said Santora, with his wife, Maureen, by his side.

Not so much a burial ground as a scar in the earth, a mass grave for the slaughtered and (apparently) the disposable.

I'm recalling the big Arab thing about feet and shoes -- the face of George Bush (the Elder) painted on the entrance floor to one of Saddam's places, so all visitors would put their dirty shoes on his face; liberated Iraqis slapping the soles of their shoes on depictions of Saddam. And this nice Islamic learning center, or whatever the hell it's supposed to be, right on the unmarked graves of the victims of Islamic learning.



If you can't beat 'em, grovel.

Oh, I just got an email from Terrell Owens. He says he wants to build a Terrell Owens Cultural Center at midfield of Cowboys Stadium.

But he assures me it will "moderate" and "designed to foster understanding between Terrell Owens and the subhuman infidels of the Dallas Cowboys organization."
