The truth of the matter is that these protests are baseless, unjustified, completely unwarranted -- and dangerous. The opposition to the mosque is all about bigotry and intolerance. The campaign against this mosque is ugly and odious in the extreme. It is based purely on appeals to base fear and bigotry, equates Islam with terrorism, lays, quite undeservedly and unjustifiably, 9/11 guilt on Muslims generally.

The protestors are engaged in collective vilification and incitement against Muslims in the United States, and they are doing it deliberately and for political and religious purposes.

The issue has been manufactured by the political and religious right in this country to incite hatred towards Muslims, which would in turn cause contempt for Democrats who support them, and lead to GOP victories at the polls.

We need to keep focused on the real issue. Let us remember who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for. Our enemies respect no religious freedom. Al-Qaida's cause is not Islam -- it's a gross distortion of Islam. These are not religious leaders they are terrorists who murder innocent men and women and children. In fact, al-Qaida has killed more Muslims than people of any other religion and that list of victims includes innocent Muslims who were killed on 9/11.
