25. Mayor Michael Bloomberg: 'Sad Day For America' If Ground Zero Mosque Plan Is Killed
Edited on Mon Aug-16-10 05:25 PM by Douglas Carpenter




NEW YORK New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be "a sad day for America" if opponents successfully kill plans for a mosque proposed near the World Trade Center site.

Bloomberg has been among a few outspoken elected officials supporting the plans for an Islamic center and mosque two blocks from ground zero.

"Let us not forget that Muslims were among those murdered on 9/11 and that our Muslim neighbors grieved with us as New Yorkers and as Americans. We would betray our values and play into our enemies' hands if we were to treat Muslims differently than anyone else. In fact, to cave to popular sentiment would be to hand a victory to the terrorists and we should not stand for that." Mayor Michael Bloomberg
