The Ground Zero Mosque debate has become plain ridiculous. The nausea-inducing political correctness factor reached its crescendo last week when yenta duo Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off The View's set because Bill O'Reilly DARED to say that MUSLIMS killed us on 9/11. Then I heard a talking head, in defense Whoopi and Joy, have the nerve to say that when someone blows up an abortion clinic "NO ONE POINTS OUT THAT THEY'RE CHRISTIAN!" Yeah, they never bring that up... *sigh* I can't take it anymore. How could it possibly be wrong to say that Muslims perpetrated 9/11? Islam and what they deem as a mandate by Allah was their implicit motivation... But, as we had said countless times recently --when someone wants to muddle the issue they scream 'racist' or 'hate speech' and that's just what these two (common & predicable) ladies did.
So, considering the debate has devolved to such a mind-blowingly ridiculous level in which the players aren't even permitted to state facts...we have to hope that the plan crashes and burns for non-political reasons.

Valley National Bank is suing Sharif El-Gamal and his real-estate company, Soho Properties, seeking $95,778 plus interest for an unrepaid loan. The firm took out a $100,000 line of credit, guaranteed by El-Gamal, from the bank in 2008, but defaulted in early 2009, according to court papers.
A spokesman for El-Gamal declined to comment yesterday.
El-Gamal moved from the firm's offices in September after his landlord initiated eviction proceedings over $39,000 in back rent.
He also failed to pay his city taxes in January and July, but agreed to a payment plan in September for $270,000, including interest..." (SOURCE)
I believe it will take a technicality like this to halt the plans and I'm sure diligent citizens will be able to dig up plenty of violations if they put some effort into it...
And, once again, I'm left baffled at the Left's fierce protection of the anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-women Islamic religion...
