Ground Zero Mosque

To The Chicago Tribune. Unpublished unsurprisingly!


The fuss over the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” is the cause of some amusement over here in the old country of England. To see all this noise and posturing from a country that was founded to escape religious persecution and oppression raises wry smiles. That the self-same religious persecution and oppression is alive and well causes us over here to ponder whether anything at all has been learned over there in the last four hundred years. You should be ashamed of yourselves and embarrassed. It is certainly embarrassing to watch.
