The mosque is needed for our own safety!

The kooky pastor behind Burn A Koran For Jesus has given up his plan. He has conceded that his constitutional right should not be exercised, because what he proposed is offensive, gratuitous, and injurious to America's image of itself.

Not so the kooky imam behind the Ground Zero mosque.("Kooky" is the kindest word I can think of in his connection. "Smarmy" is another.) If he had it to do over again, he assured the media in a full-press public relations offensive the other day, he would certainly choose another site. Alas, it's too late! For our own good, he must press ahead! As ABC News reports:

A Muslim imam behind a proposed cultural center two blocks from New York's Ground Zero said he must build there despite angry protests in order to defend America and its citizens against a "danger from the radicals in the Muslim world to our national security."
When the Mafia does this, it's called the Protection racket: if you don't contribute to our pension fund, who knows what terrible things might happen to your restaurant?

Imam Abdul also had the gall to call upon Pastor Jones to cancel his Koran-burning exercise--again, for the sake of America's national security, and indeed to show the true Christian spirit! As he explained:
"We have freedom of speech, but with freedom comes responsibility. ... This is dangerous for our national security, but also it is the un-Christian thing to do."
The imam evidently feels no such obligation. He'll take the freedom, plus public financing if he can get it, but responsibility? That's for Pastor Jones to display. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
