Introduction

Elizabeth Zusi this is my own work. 11th grade Pro Islamic Community Center Pro Islamic Community Center The Islamic Community Center, which is planned to be built a few blocks away from the World Trade Center site, has raised many conflicting concerns and arguments. The Community Center, although still in the planning stages of construction, has already gained much opposition. Opponents to the construction of the "Ground Zero Mosque" argue that the building would be offensive because the terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attack had done so in the name of Islam.

The negative out looks to the construction not only send bad messages and lead to discrimination. Most of the arguments against the building of the "Ground Zero Mosque" are due to hurt feelings and the emotions left over from the 9/11 attack, the construction of this new building would be a step forward for the nation. ?? ?? ?? ?? http://www.dnainfo.com/20100525/manhattan/meeting-on-planned-mosque-near-world-trade-center-site-draws-hundreds-of-people http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2010/08/islamic_cultural_centre_sorta_near_ground_zero ...read more.
