    This is disgusting. To use for the purposes of burnishing what for the well-informed will always remain the permanently-blackened "image" of Islam, by putting up a mosque -- a mosque in which, one assumes, the worshippers to that mosque subscribe to the contents of the Qur'an, Hadith, and Sira, and therefore believe such things as 9.29 and 9.5 and many other similar calls for hatred and violence toward Unbelievers -- that is, non-Muslims -- is to be put up right near the World Trade Center, as if a building can undo the texts and those who, taking those texts to heart, destroyed that very Trade Center and those who worked in its offices, as a public-relations stunt, a permanent one, for all to see, one more example of the phoniness of all those Muslim Outreach Nights, where the gullible come to be gulled, because they enter knowing nothing about Islam, and leave knowing, or believing, only what the smiling plausible Muslim spokesmen offer as they spin their tales of victimization and offer their deep, sincere, expressions of horror and amazement that people "calling themselves Muslims" could "do a thing like that") oh, and don't forget, after the talk, if you all behave yourselves and don't ask any uncomfortable or probing questions, there will be a real feast -- chicken, and pita, and rice, and baklava-like desserts!). As to Feisal Abdul Rauf himself, search for his name at this website, or if you prefer, google him, to find out more.

One of Black Seed Bagels’ specialities.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine
