BW from Bay Ridge says:
I dare them to build the mosque - they ain't got the dough!

They are $245,000. behind on their taxes.

They do not have full title to the property.

They have no plan, and no plan has been approved.

If they started demolition now, they wouldn't have the construction finished by 9.11.2011.

They have no money; they couldn't get financing to build condos. They want to flip the property, based on your outrage, taking a profit, and making themselves the victims.

Build it - I dare you.

this is sick peple. America was built on the freedom of religion, our for fathers having to leave europe in serach of a new land where they will not be persecuted for there religious belifs. Muslims should have a right to build a mosque such as a christian have the right to build a church an such as a jew to build a synagoge.
