    There are other places to build a 15 (13) story mosque, this is not one of them. Pope John Paul II ordered Carmelite Nuns to move their convent away from Auschwitz. He said "Just because you have the right to do something, doesn't mean you should. He understood the sensitivity of the people's feelings and how it was perceived. The nuns moved to a different area and the matter was settled. Why is it when Muslims ask us to respect their sensitivities can they not reciprocate in kind? Many many people feel it is just not appropriate to build this mosque there, I am one of them. All the people who oppose the Cordoba House are asking is for the Imam to be sensitive to their despair and grief. It isn't asking too much.
