German authorities say they have closed a Hamburg mosque used by the Sept. 11 attackers as a meeting place before they moved to the United States.

A statement by Hamburg officials says the Taiba mosque was shut down and its cultural association was banned on Monday.

The prayer house, formerly known as al-Quds mosque, used to be a meeting and recruiting point for some of the Sept. 11 attackers.

Weekly news magazine Focus cites a report by a local intelligence agency branch in saying the mosque has again become the city's "main center of attraction for the jihad scene." It says some members who belonged to the Taiba group and prayed at the mosque have moved on to a radical training camp in Uzbekistan.

Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Soooo... I guess this is just food for thought.

The same distance as the mosque site, from "hallowed ground".

Politics or Hypocrisy -
Or, What comes around eventually goes back around

After all the problems the Church of Latter Saints has had in it's history here in the US,
you would think Senator Reid would have better judgement...
or else he has committed the sin of hypocrisy for political reasons.

I don't know his true motivations, but I certainly question his judgment in making this feeble announcement.
Doing or saying anything at all just to get re-elected will come back to bite him where it hurts...

Sen. Harry Reid Breaks With Obama Over 'Ground Zero Mosque'
President Obama's Support for Islamic Center Opened Door to Republican Assault

Quote:
President Obama's staunchest ally in the Senate broke with the president today over the controversial Islamic center planned for a site near Ground Zero, and said he is opposed to its construction.

The office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada issued a statement saying, "The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. Senator Reid respects that, but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else."

Thinking the mosque should be built somewhere else, and doing something governmental to prevent it being built there are two very separate things.

What is an extremist to an extremist? According to classicman, there are no extremists. Couldn't be. A xenophobe could not see a xenophobe as a xenophobe. To a xenophobe, xenophobia is normal behavior.

So has Starbucks. But hate to advance a political agenda does not work by blaming Starbucks. Extremist seek easier targets: niggers, spics, kikes, fags, short people, Hilary, and Muslims. It is still intolerance. Xenophobia promoted to rally their supporters. No wonder these same extremists advocate, “We want Obama to fail.”

This mosque simply makes radicalism and bigotry obvious.

Nice list - All but three of which are in my immediate or extended family. No relation to Hillary (correct spelling) sorry.

So because I agree with her and not you, we are xenophobes as well as extremists? Thanks. I like the company I am in.

In your nightmares.
Ya know, It sucks when reality hits you in the face and you realize you were totally wrong.
Too bad some cannot see nor admit that. They are called extremists by some. Typically, those people who are calling them extremists are themselves as extreme as those they are calling extremists are as extreme as those they are calling extremists are as extreme as those they are calling extremists are as extreme as those they are calling extremists are as

Once a xenophobe is identified, then he no longer appreciates humor.

Xenophobe. Clearly Islam must be evil because Limbaugh, et al warns us of Islamofascism. And because classicman tells us Islam created 11 September. Must be true. Limbaugh, Palin, and Gringrich say it is so.

Islam did not do 11 September. Amazing how extremists will do everything to avoid going after bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Islam is an easy target. Always attack easy targets. Enflame your supporters by created mythical evil.

So enflamed by hate, is he, as to not even see a good joke. So easily made angry. He is a wacko extremist. The definition of xenophobia. Enemies are lurking everywhere to kill us all - an axis of evil. Only a xenophobe fears Islam and mosques – because Limbaugh and Hannity tell him how to think – no hate.

Alive and exposed is xenophobia - even from short people.
