I am disgusted to think that a mosque is being supported by our President to be built near ground zero. On 9/11, American's joined together as patriots of a country we are proud to call home. Today that same feeling was felt around the world.
We would like to propose that a non-denominational structure be build that would welcome people of all faiths to worship together. This is not about Islam this is about American's and our various belief systems. While we understand that not all of Islam caused 9/11; the building of this mosque is an insult to the people that lost their lives and loved ones. This issue is so emotional that American's will not support the building of a mosque in this location. The potential for violence in this location due to American's wishes being ignored is a frightening thought.
I am Jewish. Do you think I would be welcomed at a mosque? No. Would a Christian? Most likely not. We need a structure to bring American's back together not create a divisive move that supercedes the partisanship we have seen during this particular administration.
Please sign this petition if you feel as strongly as I do, and my friends do, that building a mosque is highly inappropriate at that location in NYC. Let us raise our voices, as there is power in numbers, and let this administration know that "we the people" will not condone the building of a mosque. If a house of worship is built it should be one that opens it's doors to all Americans; not just one religion. Let us be united and not divided by this very serious proposal.
I do not support the building of a mosque at ground zero. Let these words be heard around the world and let American's unite in creating something better and more healthy for a nation vastly divided on 9/11/10.
