Op­po­si­tion to mosque plan

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

The Anti-Defama­tion League, the nation’s lead­ing Jewish civil rights group, has come out against the planned mosque and Is­lamic com­mu­nity cen­ter near ground zero, say­ing that more in­for­ma­tion is needed about fund­ing for the project and that the lo­ca­tion is “coun­ter­pro­duc­tive to the heal­ing process.” The Jewish civil rights group said it re­jects any op­po­si­tion to the cen­ter based on big­otry and ac­knowl­edged that the Cor­doba Ini­tia­tive has the le­gal right to build at the site.
