Build A ‘Golden Age” Center At Ground Zero


Possibly, instead of establishing a mosque near the location of the great tragedy of 9/11, a center of the three religions – a “New Golden Age” Center – could be established, which would symbolize both a readiness and a desire to live in peace and friendship side by side with one another.

Perhaps the significant funds that have been raised to establish the Ground Zero mosque could be redirected to fund the establishment of a center of the three religions that will prove believers can live in harmony while making joint efforts against the fundamentalism and extremism that is a danger to all of us.

Dr. David Altman is vice chair of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Strategic Dialogue and senior vice president of Netanya Academic College.

Arab leaders who want the US to stop Islamic State are afraid of being dubbed traitors and US agents

National Lawyers Guild:Sworn enemy of Israel & the legal arm of Palestinian terrorism since the ’70s

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

For too long the media and international community have been preaching that “Palestinians” bear no responsibility for the consequences of their decisions and they are passive victims of the conflict.

America is engaged in an intense debate regarding the plan to build a mosque and Muslim community center near Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 attack on New York. A wave of criticism has been growing against establishing a mosque at this site, the very idea of which elicits overwhelming pain as the horrible crime was committed by followers of extremist Islam via the manipulation of its symbols and the belief that they were acting as messengers of God.
