    What's all this "Islamophobia" about? I don't think it's a "phobia" to be watchful of people that are out to destroy you, your country, and your way of life. For the rest of the fellow Children of the Book – Happy Eid-al-Fitr! (Children of the Book – are Mohammedans, Christians, and Hebrews for those that are wondering).

    It's a shame that Obama feels the necessity to use a tragedy like this to try to enhance his standing in the public's eyes.

    To ThinkAgain – An inter-faith chapel is a different critter than a center devoted to a single faith. The ICC should be built further from Ground Zero. No one seems to have a problem with it being built, just the location.
