TIME Poll: Majority Opposes Mosque, Many Distrust Muslims
Opponents of the planned Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan have public opinion firmly in their corner. According to a new TIME poll, 61% of respondents oppose the construction of the Park51/Cordoba House project, compared to 26% who support it. More than 70% concur with the premise that proceeding with the plan would be an insult to the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

I am sure it is intended as a victory memorial by Islam., as is the super mosque intended across the street from the Olympics in London is a memorial to Munich. Anyone who can't see this needs to give their head a shake.
