There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.
Isn't it clear at this point that the vast majority of national, politicized "awareness" campaigns—of either political persuasion—are funded by some foundation or other with an agenda? Does this matter? Anyway, again, thus continues a shameful (and hopefully) brief chapter in America's long history of xenophobic hysteria.
