Giuliani Argues Against Ground Zero Mosque

Giuliani Argues Against Ground Zero Mosque

By: Dan Weil

Rudy Giuliani delivered a passionate, reasoned argument on NBC’s “Today” show against the Muslim mosque planned near ground zero.

“This project is divisive,” said the ex-New York mayor, who was in office on 9/11. “This project is creating tremendous pain for people who’ve already made the ultimate sacrifice. All you’re doing is creating more division, more anger, more hatred.”

Giuliani acknowledges that the project can legally be built, but that doesn’t mean it should be built. Backers of the mosque say it can be a site of interfaith healing. But how is that possible when the mosque upsets relatives of the Sept. 11 victims, Giuliani asks.

“The question here is a question of sensitivity and are you really what you pretend to be,” he said.

“The idea of this is supposed to be healing, the idea that Muslims care about what Christians and Jews do. … If you’re going to so horribly offend the people who are most directly affected by this, then how are you healing?”
