"The real insult to those who died on 9/11 is not a mosque that Ground Zero visitors won't even know is there, but how long it's taking to rebuild the WTC — an affront that can't be blamed on Islam at its most maniacal."
-Steve Cuozzo, who is occasionally called upon to play the role of adult at the New York Post, addresses the "controversy" over plans-thus far unfunded and theoretical at best-to build a mosque downtown. You would not know this from reading Cuozzo's piece-headlined "Oh, stop this inane hysteria already!"-but most of the "controversy" has been whipped up by the Post itself. Still, credit where credit is due: It's nice to see that Cuozzo's hatred of the city's Landmarks Preservation Committee is strong enough that it outweighs his own paper's stance about all Muslims being conspiratorial terrorists who want to blow up New York.
