Ground Zero Mosque Madness

The firestorm across the news and blogosphere continues as Pamela Geller from Atlas Shrugs uncovers a video that everyone should see.

Video is of Imam Feisal Rauf and direct quotes from it are over at Atlas Shrugs, too numerous to paste here or I would be copying and pasting her whole piece, so go read it there.

Rasmussen finds that more people are starting to follow the controversy and they "don't like it."

A lot more voters are paying attention to the plans to build a mosque near the Ground Zero site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, and they don’t like the idea.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 85% of U.S. voters say they are now following news stories about the mosque planned near Ground Zero. That’s a 34-point jump from a month ago when only 51% said they were following the story.

The new finding includes 58% who are following the story very closely, up from 22% in mid-July.

Now 62% oppose the building of a mosque near where the World Trade Center stood in Lower Manhattan, compared to 54% in the previous survey. Twenty-five percent (25%) favor allowing the mosque to go ahead, and 13% more are not sure.

The Weekly Standard brings you a mixed bag of goodies, all about the Ground Zero mosque, including how "U.S. taxpayers are spending $16,000 so Rauf can spread his "moderate" message"

The storm has not passed and from the numbers of those now following the controversy that were not following it before, it looks like this issue will not rest any time soon.
