LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT

  It would be very helpful to the debate if the media would stop referring to the proposed Islamic Community Center in New York as a mosque.  IT IS NOT A MOSQUE.  Calling it a mosque was the idea of the fear and hate mongers on the right.  It is a community center with basketball courts, swimming pool, a culinary school, meeting rooms and a room for prayer because Muslims pray several times a day.  It is not within sight of "ground zero" and has nothing to do with it except that they are planning to have a memorial in the center for the lives lost there. 

Terrorists took down the Twin Towers, and the Murrah Building.  We don't need to label them by the religions they allegedly lived by, but by the acts they perpetrated.  Terror is directed at everyone, spares no one.
