  2. TO MY KNOWLEDGE CONSIDER SHORT : 1º precismente That should not build any building in that area that has something to do with the Islamic religion .2 º Let every believer of the Islamic religion, and any other religion that is allowed access to the temple;as it must shed its footwear should sign printed on it a little to clear ,should include specific and concise oath never act in an act of TERRORISM of any kind in any place.

  3. I sincerely believe that Obama's support of the Mosque at ground zero it is based, not so much in support of the president to religious freedom and other, but by the trade agreement signed with Saudi Arabia worth 30.000 million $ for sale de84 fighter aircraft f-15 and other weapons material.

    Do not be surprised if one of the conditions of Saudi Arabia, State ambiguous on the issue of transnational terrorism, for you to sign the agreement with the U.S. is “Obama, I'll sign the contract but supporting my project Mosque”.
    Namely, if no commercial interests behind, I can not understand the great support of Obama “Cordoba House”… But, the truth, I understand nothing.

    Do you?

      Of course it is all a crossroads.
