|As the controversy around the mosque near Ground Zero grows Postcards the 9/11 Memorial on Staten Island was vandalized with five 9/11 victimsí profiles being smashed.
Now one thing may have nothing to do with the other but the possibility always exists.
Donít all involved see the potential danger of the Mosque being built just a few feet away from Ground Zero?
Say during the construction or after it is built some fanatic attempts to bomb the mosque.
Now this could happen.
It could be an Islamic extremist or a crazed American.
Either way people will die and the rift between all involved will be widened with each blaming the other.
Why would we want to create such a no win situation?
Now all of this should have been taken into consideration early on.
But now it has, as with all things related to 9/11, become a political hot item.
And all the same politicians who did not give a second thought about defeating the 9/11 Health Care bill just a few weeks ago are on their soap boxes attempting to gain a political advantage in the upcoming elections.
The same politicians that have allowed the 9/11 memorial/museum to be buried underground will use this for their political gain.
And mayor Bloomberg who continues to allow the WTC Captive Insurance Corp to pay lawyers millions to deny health claims to 9/11 victims is appalled that New Yorkers might actually have thoughts of their own about a mosque a few blocks from Ground Zero.
So unfortunately the sad saga of Ground Zero drags on into its 9th year.
Ex politicians who have made billions off the tragedy join with those still in office for photo ops on the 11th day of September each year and could care less about 9/11 or its victims for the other 364 days.
And the atmosphere of hate increases.
Nobody can convince me that a mosque a few blocks from Ground Zero is going to make things any better.
