In every other place in the world when the Moslems erect a Victory Mosque they do it on the exact site of the important and central cultural symbols they are trying to erase, replace and show they conquered for Islam.
Whether the Bari mosque in India, the Fethiye Camii in Turkey, the Ummayad Mosque in Damascus, the Qutub Minar in Afghanistan, the Asqa Mosque in the Hague (formerly a Synagogue), and of course all in Israel: the Al Asqa Mosque/ al-Haram ash-Sharif, the Mosque in Tomb of the Patriarchs, the mosque attached to the Rambam shul (Hurva), to name just a few well known examples (and there are plenty more examples from all around the world).
In fact, this practice started with Muhammad himself when he conquered Mecca in the year 630 and converted the Ka’aba into a central Islamic site.
So New Yorkers and all Americans should be grateful that the latest Victory Mosque is not going to be on top of the Freedom Tower (should that ever be built) in the exact center of Ground Zero where the Twin Towers once stood, but only within the Ground Zero perimeter, and closer to the edge.
OK, obviously when the Freedom Tower will be built, I can guarantee there will be a demand to install a significant mosque in the Freedom Tower too, but in the meantime, New Yorkers and all Americans can sleep well at night knowing that this Victory Mosque, while within the Ground Zero perimeter, and clearly in everyone’s face, will not be in the exact center as they probably would have preferred.
It means Islam's victory over America isn't complete... yet.
