YES TO THE MOSQUE
An extensive new Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey of Muslim-Americans finds that almost threefourths of them — 72 percent — say that the controversial “ground zero mosque” and Islamic cultural center should be built on a site just a few blocks from the site of the World Trade Center in New York City. Onefifth says the project should not go forward.
The public differs sharply from Muslim-Americans: 38 percent of the public says it should be allowed while a “47 percent plurality” says it should not be allowed,” according to the survey.
