- The developer (Feisal Abdul Rauf) has every legal right to develop the property that he owns, so long as he obeys all the relevant regulation. From everything that I've read, Cordoba House would obey all existing regulations.
- Developing that mosque right next to 9/11 Ground Zero would be a very insensitive and obnoxious thing to do. We're still free to do that in America, though in the name of political correctness those rights are eroding every day. As others have often pointed out, freedom of speech (which placing the mosque at Ground Zero is a form of) implies that you're going to offend someone – otherwise it wouldn't need to be protected at all.
And I think Gret Gutfield has the right idea. Now that's an American idea for dealing with the issue!
