For the second time in less than a week the Imam behind the proposed Islamic Cultural Center, formerly known as the Cordoba House, has threatened us with Muslim violence unless he gets his way. "Man of peace"? Yeah, right!
I've been getting more and more sceptical of his announced motives of "bridge building" and "peacemaking" given that his refusal to compromise even one iota is actually BURNING bridges and DESTROYING peace.
If he offered to move this center even just a couple more blocks away, he'd not only take all the wind out of the sails of the opposition, but he'd likely vastly increase support for the project and even get donations! The fact that he hasn't done this and is now making unsubtle threats makes me very suspicous of his motives.
