So see Christians and Muslims? It’s all the Zionists’ fault.
Dr. ‘Abd al-Mu‘ti Bayumi, a member of the Islamic Research Academy [of Al Azhar] told Al Masry Al Youm that he rejects the building of any mosque in this area [Ground Zero], because the “devious mentality” desires to connect these events [of 9/11] with Islam, though he maintains that Islam is innocent of this accusation. Instead, it is a “Zionist conspiracy,” which many are making use of to harm the religion.
Had he stopped at “I don’t think the mosque should be built there” that would have been fine but dude took it beyond the line that separates sane and insanely bigoted by blaming – who else? – TEH JOOS. Thus, we both think the mosque is not OK for different reasons, ours not seeped in intolerance for the Jewish faith.
Fine. Whatever. That’s what it is. Whatever makes you not build that mosque there. Pick the craziest one and go with it.
