Moving the community center

     The Reverend Terry Jones of World Outreach Center in Florida who has a congregation of approximately 50 people has agreed to call off his planned burn a Quran day on September 11th because he claims that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has agreed to move the New York Islam community center Park 51.  This news has not been confirmed.  Donald Trump has asked that the community center be built at least 5 blocks away from the community center and seems to have made an offer for the Park 51 property at 25% above price.
     The smart move for Imam Abdul Rauf and the Park 51 developer is to hold firm on staying at their current location.  If it becomes apparrent that proposed mosques and community centers can be blackmailed out of their preferred locations than that will be a recruiting bonanza for terrorists.  This truly would be a message that there is a war on Islam in the United States and that would place American citizens around the world in danger.
